Just bought HD5450 to run 2 vga monitors (1 via DVI-vga adapter). But I can't get it to recognise that there are 2 monitors. Using latest Calalyst drivers etc.

Running Win7 64bit.

Any ideas as I am happy with my monitors and I just want to extend desktop?

One port is DVI-I (both analog and digital) second one is DVI-D (digital only), you cant use an adapter to convert digital to analog.. thus the second screen will be blank. You would need to buy an active dvi-vga converter for the second monitor .. or ditch the analog crap and buy dvi monitors
