Hello All,

I have a Dell Optiplex 360 desktop with a ATI radeon HD 2400 Pro video card. I want to install 2 monitors to this desktop but I'm not certain if this video card supports that capability. I have a Dell 20 LCD monitor that will use the analog connection and a 20" apple cinema display. I've connected both but I only see the apple monitor working and don't receive any output through the dell monitor, only sound.

I've gone into diplay properties and into settings tab, I click on Identify and it shows the apple monitor as 1 but when I select the second monitor and click on Extend my windows desktop onto this monitor it, nothing happens the dell monitor stays sleep mode.

The apple monitor is connected via the DVI and the Dell via the analog.

Any help would be appreciated.
