Another option to try since you have a Graphics card with dual outputs (whether they be HDMI, VGA, DVI, or a Combination of any of these), would be to buy a small video adapter/splitter. this will split the image from one output into two outputs enabling you to use up to four displays if you had two of these adapters on a dual display device. the cable is available online, but you would have to do some searching for it as they are not too popular and easy to find. i hope this answers your question or solves your problems. also you will need a good power supply as the voltage drops for your displays will increase. may not be possible with all cards either.

Re: I want to run 3 monitors on my dell vostro
Hi, Couple of points I’d like to
mention. Vostro has two models slim and mini tower. Both of them are mostly
similar so this should be applicable for whichever you have. The default graphics card on
the computer is integrated on the motherboard. When you add another video card,
say to the PCI-Express 16x slot on the motherboard, this disables the
integrated video card. If the 2 monitors are
connected to the video card, both would get display. When the computer is turned
ON, if you plug in the 3rd monitor to the integrated video card, you would not
get any display on the 3rd monitor. BUT if you restart the computer
with the 3rd monitor plugged in, the computer would give a signal to
the 3rd monitor and disable the two monitors connected to the video
card. This feature is added on purpose to diagnose any possible video card
problems. Eg. Assuming there was a problem with the video card, if this feature
were not available you would not get any display on the monitor from any of the
ports and you would not be able to diagnose if the problem was with the
monitor, integrated video or the video card. Hope this helps. Please rate
your feedback! Thanks, VJ

look for a speaker icon open it
where it says audio check to see if your sound card is defalt or not cahanfe it as you need to.
If his fails you may want to put in an external sound card (from ebay about 10 pounds.7 dollars)

try to check with the monitor selftest if the monitor self test passes, the issue is with the video card.
to check your video card: try to connect the monitor to integrated port and check out so that we could find if the problem is with the video card.
with RAM there can be a few problems 1) the frequency of ram which *********** board supports might be less than the freq at which the ram you are puttin works, hence in this case RAM wont work on this mother board and ull have to get the RAM replaced 2) some motherboards do not support a 2 x 1 GB RAM where as they might support a 1 X 2 RAM (if you do have 2 mem slots for ram) and then there is the most trivial problem of the slot not being clean or arm not being put properly, i can think of ne other reason for the ram not working properly..
enable your onboard graphics and plug your monitor into the onboard. start up your pc and install any needed drivers for the secondary graphics card. right click on your desktop and go to your display properties you should see a faded out screen that has a 2 and a lit screen that has a 1 right click on the faded screen and check enabled then move your monitor cable over to the new vid card right click on the lit 1 and disable it making 2 your primary.
Go to Control Panel=>System => Harware=> Device Manager. Under the "Universal Serial Bus Controllers" delete all USB root hubs & controllers/ ports & then Action=> San for hardware changes That shall freshly install the USB ports on your system & shall work.
