I am having trouble gettting a dual screen to work with my HD Radeon 7850.. I use both DVI to VGA and DVI - D to VGA Adapters to connect them to the screens. But the second monitor will not get picked up... I have tried diffrent cables and diffrent screens..

I was wondering weather I had to enable to the Port on the BIOS settings or somwhere on the catalyst control center..

Its now getting quite frustrating..

Any help is welcome

There is no DVI-D - VGA adapter, there is only Active DVI-D - VGA converter, you cant turn a digital signal into analog with a simple adapter. Dont the monitors have any other inputs? DVI, HDMI? You can easily convert DVI into HDMI with a cheap adapter.
