I have both VGA and DVI port on my asus P8H61-M LE motherboard.
I want to use 2 monitors together one from VGA port and one from DVI port.
I've tried to use DVI to VGA converter.
I've connected both monitors, but it only shows display on one screen and in display option it does not detect the second screen.

How can I use both monitors?

Am using windows 8.1 and my drivers are intel HD graphics on board and it is uptodate. And i have tried many times with dvi to vga converter but its not detecting screen. i have enabled multi screen option in bios as well.. and still not getting the screen on. what should i do now? should i bring a dvi to dvi cable and try again.?

  • Update your drivers as you should be able to use both monitors simultaneously. Using a DVI-to-VGA adapter should pose no problem, either. – Kinnectus Jul 18 '15 at 9:18
  • "DVI to VGA" might be your problem. Generally when there's a VGA port there's no need for a DVI port to be DVI-I - they're typically DVI-D . A clear picture of your back panel would be helpful. – Journeyman Geek Jul 18 '15 at 10:55

Normally, connecting monitors on both DVI and VGA should work. Can you try connecting the DVI without VGA adapter and see what happens? Also go in BIOS settings and check if both VGA and DVI ports are enabled.


I think you will be able to do this.

You just need to configure secondary monitor display in Graphics Properties. Since you didn't told what OS are you using I can't help you with that.
