I have 2 monitors, one VGA, other DVI-D (Single Link) and I'm trying to set them up as dual monitors. However, when I connect them both, only the VGA one works. If I disconnect VGA monitor, the DVI-D gets the signal, but then when I reconnect VGA monitor, the DVI-D goes into "No signal" mode and the VGA one works again.
When both of them are connected at the same time, I can hear plugged- and unplugged-device sounds coming out continuously in a loop (as if the DVI-D monitor tries to connect - makes connected sound - but then fails and makes disconnected sound).
In the display settings, the DVI-D monitor gets detected, after 1-2 seconds, it goes undetected then gets detected again, then goes undetected again and it goes in this loop forever until I unplug it.
So in short:
- Is it possible to have dual monitors, one VGA, one DVI-D?
- Why does my DVI-D monitor get detected, after 2 secs goes undetected, then detected again, then undetected again (and the loop just continues forever ...)?
Thanks for any help.
