My second monitor won't work after I got a new graphics card.

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

So I got a new GPU today (AMD Radeon RX 460 4gb) for my pc, and after installing it and a new power supply, I booted up the machine and found that my second monitor that has a VGA connector does not display anything other than a black screen.  I tried restarting my pc several times, as well as unplugging and re-plugging the VGA connector.  That did nothing to fix the issue.  Before i got the new GPU this issue had never happened before.  Any help is appreciated.

 

Thanks

What cable are you using for the VGA connection?


I WILL find your ITX build thread, and I WILL recommend the SIlverstone Sugo SG13B

 

Primary PC:

i7 8086k (won) - EVGA Z370 Classified K - G.Kill Trident Z RGB - Force MP500 - Jedi Order Titan Xp - The venerated Hyper 212 Evo (with RGB Riing flair) - EVGA G2 650W - Black and green theme, Razer branwashed me.

Draws 400 watts under max load, for reference.

 

Linux Proliant ML150 G6:

Dual Xeon X5560 - 24GB ECC DDR3 - GTX 750 TI - old Seagate 1.5TB HDD - Dark moded Ubuntu (and Win7, cuz why not)

 

How many watts do I need? Seasonic Focus threadUserbenchmark (Et al.) is trash explained, PSU misconceptions, protections explainedgroup reg is bad

How is the VGA attached to the gpu? 

the VGA is connected to the motherboard, only my primary monitor with a DVI cable is hooked up to the gpu.

What model 460 do you have that uses a VGA port?

The VGA is connected to the motherboard.  Only my primary monitor (DVI) is hooked up to the gpu.

so the GPU is probably taking priority over the integrated graphics. What CPU do you have?

Connect your monitor to your GPU, not your motherboard.


Ryzen 5 3600 | Zotac GTX 1070 Mini | GA-AB350N-Gaming WiFi | G.Skill RipjawsV Silver 2x8GB @ 3200MHz CL16

Acer Chromebook C720 @ GalliumOS | Lenovo Thinkpad T450 @ Manjaro KDE
