Is the video card capable of independently controlling two different monitors? Some of the older monitors only had one RAMDAC, so both monitors had to be the same resolution, refresh rate, etc.
I'm resurrecting a old computer and turning it into a media center PC. I have two LCD monitors. One of the monitors works fine with the old box but the other one does not. It flickers and is slow to update. This happens even during post. Definitely unhappy. I then hook up the box to another monitor and it works fine.
Monitor broken right? The weird part is that when I hook my laptop up to the "broken" monitor it works fine. I'm using the VGA output on both. DVI doesn't work either.
