What I am working with first I guess... Video Card- AMD Radeon HD 7790 2gb GDDR5 Motherboard- Gigabyte GA-F2A85X-D3H Ok, so I have the one monitor plugged into the motherboard and the other plugged into the graphics card. Originally the BIOS settings were set up so that under peripherals, the primary video device was the NB PCIe Slot Video. However, the monitor plugged into the mobo would not turn on, nor would the AMD Catalyst Control Center even recognize it. I tried changing the Integrated Graphics to Force, but that didn't fix it. When I changed the setting back to IGD, the monitor plugged into the mobo works, but the one plugged into the graphics card doesn't. However, when I changed that, in the AMD Catalyst Control Center, it recognizes that something is plugged in, but only says [Unknown Display] Unknown Adapter. I have tried uninstalling and reinstalling the drivers several times now, as well as trying the easy fix of . I guess my question is is it possible to run both the mobo monitor and the one plugged into the graphics card, since it does recognize that a monitor is plugged in? And if so, how?
