Hey Guys,

As i bought a new gpu(Zotac 1060 6gb amp) last month i also got a new Monitor(Dell S2216H). But recently i started the need of a 2nd monitor and hence i decided to add my old monitor to my setup (Lg E2041).

My card has 3 display ports, 1 hdmi and 1 Dvi-i. I used a Dvi-i to vga converter to connect the new Lg monitor. Well my system can detect it, as in the photos below, and the screenshot shows that the gpu is displaying on the 2nd monitor(Lg) too.Untitled.thumb.jpg.df8703b9c3a38d396924174e22deb266.jpg But on the screen it shows D-Sub and enters to power saving mode. Can you guys help me how to get the display on the 2nd monitor too? A guy from one of the shops said to me that the Zotac 1060's Dvi-i port can only be used if i use a  Dvi-i to Hdmi converter and hence suggested me to buy a new monitor with a Hdmi or Display Port input. Well right now i cant buy a new monitor as i recently upgraded my whole system. Guys thank for your help in advance.

Okay... So i need to go buy a dvi-d to dvi d 24+1 pin cable? As my lg monitor has a Vga & a dvi port 24+1pin.

Thank You @Princess Cadence
