Vista not detecting monitors connected to the VGA port

I have a HP Pavilion slimline computer. Running Vista Home.
It has the SSIS (the white display port), my main monitors is connected to this and works perfectly. However there is also a VGA port, when I try to connect a second monitor to it, Vista doesn't detect it. I'm not too sure if it's a driver issues as even my main monitor can't work on it (it's VGA but uses an adaptor to connect to the SSIS, when I 1st got this computer I tried to connect my main monitor to the VGA port and it didn't work. I've tried a few second monitors, they don't work, the one I have now is a 'gnr TS501'.

Thanks

It looks like you have your TV set as your primary display, you will need to open up control panel to change this. I'm assuming you're using Windows 7 (the process should be similar for Vista and XP).
Open control panel > Appearance and Personalisation > Display, and choose the "Change display settings".
There should be a button that says "Detect" or "Detect Displays". Click this button. You should see something like this:

Click the icon which corresponds to the monitor that you want to make you primary display (the boxes numbered 1 and 2 represent your two displays). Since you have yours the wrong way round, you should click box 2. If any check boxes come up saying "do you want to make this monitor your primary display, say yes. You should then have your monitors the right way round.

Unfortunately, there is no way to run on board graphics with your dedicated graphics card. One will always be disabled, (would need a hybrid SLI/Crossfire board for that option).

You will need to upgrade to a graphics card that has dual DVI & or VGA outputs built in to be able to hook up 2 monitors. (output type of port depends on what type of connector you have on the monitor cables)

First Remove the VGA cable from your pc backside and turn on the monitor alone and you should find some message that VGA cable unplugged or VGA not found like that... If it comes then the monitor is ok...

Then power on the pc and you should find out the harddrive's red led will blinking and you will get also one beep then it will ok,
if it is really problem with graphics card or display issue, you should get some beep codes continuously (2 or 3 beep sounds)

Nvidia F5200


You could try right-clicking your desktop and going to settings. There you need to select the other (grey or a 2 in it) monitor and select "extended desktop". If that doesn't help, check the monitor cable. (maybe try another one, you never know...)
If it's still not detected, you could look around the NVidia control panel (I myself have always had ATi graphics cards) for a "detect monitor" option.

Second monitor no longer detected by NVIDIA GeForce 7950GT / on Vista


A quick question, Are your monitors using a DVI output from your graphics card?

When was the last time you remember them both working, and what display driver was you using?

have you tried swapping both vga/dvi cables round and booting in safe mode?

see if that helps..

Nvidia GeForce 7200 GS PCIE - Multi-Display does not work


This card does not allow you to Multi-Display with the VGA port and the S-video port. If you put a DVI to VGA port adaptor (not supplied) on the DVI port, you can Mulit-Display two VGA monitors and (presumably) a VGA (from the DVI port) and S-video monitor.

This is not explained anywhere and the card does not come with a DVI to VGA port adaptor, so I wa only able to work this out after I bought the DVI to VGA port adaptor.

No signal to monitor


  1. Verify card is seated properly.
  2. Check bios settings. ie. disable onboard video, enable PNP OS installed, enable "assign IRQ to vga", disable shadowing and caching, enable passive release, enable delayed transaction, vga boot sequence: AGP, set graphics aperture size to 128MB, disable turbo modes.
  3. Verify power supply is at least 350 watts.
  4. Reboot into safe mode (press F8 right after the BIOS POST screen and before the windows loading screen) and use the program, Driver Cleaner Pro to remove Nvidia video driver remnants. Don't select all of the options, just the Nvidia driver and the plain ATI selection.
  5. Verify the monitor cable is securely connected to both the monitor and the computer.
  6. Verify that you have connected the cable to the vga port on the card and not the onboard vga port. (I'm not implying that you are dumb or anything like that, but sometimes even the best of us, overlooks the simple things... especially me! LOL)
  7. Verify the monitor cable is good.
  8. (Last but not least), try using another monitor to test. (Could be an incompatibility with the monitor.)

Its sounds like some damage was done during the dismantle/reassembly and now the onboard graphics has dies like you said. Could have been cause by static perhaps. Easy to damage them as i have found out myself so dont feel too bad.
