I have a Dell OptiPlex GX620 desktop. It has both a VGA and a DVI-D video card installed. Currently I have a VGA monitor connected to the VGA port. I want to and a 2nd monitor to this system, but I only have another VGA monitor available. The purpose is to expand the desktop onto the 2nd monitor and not to repeat the image of the 1st monitor.
I've purchased a DVI-D to HD15 VGA adapter, which allowed me to plug the 2nd VGA monitor into the DVI-D port on the PC. Nothing comes up on the 2nd monitor. When I try to enable expanding the desktop to this 2nd monitor, the check mark disappears after I click Apply.
Is there a way to accomplish the extended desktop, with the 2 VGA monitors that I have and the 2 video adapters? Thank you!
