    hey guys

    am having trouble with my duel display on my graphics card.

    i have 2 monitors Viewsonic HDMI 1080p and a HP W227h i wanted to duel these to screens up but having difficulties.

    So i first plug in my Viewsonic Via HDMI to the back of my graphics card everything is fine and monitor is on,
    then i try and plug my other monitor in using HDMI to DVI-I converter.
    every time i plug this in it turns off my viewsonic monitor giving no signal untill i unplug the HP DVI-I connector.
    ive switched these around so the HP is using the HDMI port and the Viewsonic using the DVI-I port but it does exactly the same with only 1 being on at a time
    ive reinstalled windows even changed my graphics card from a GTX560TI to a Radeon R9280x but does exactly the same.
    ive had it running great for a few hours untill i restart the pc then back to its usual tricks but not getting any joy anymore
    i have also tryed to plug in my tv to it and it does the same thing

    Radeon R9280x
    16GB DDR3
    asus m5a78l-m

    Any help is greatly appriciated

    Have you tried using a normal dvi cable on the second monitor? I've got one via hdmi and the second via dvi and no problems. Updated your graphics drivers? Could also be a faulty dvi port.
