Dual Monitors on Optiplex 990, VGA and DVI.

This question has suggested answer(s)

I am trying to connect to monitors to my optiplex 990. It has a AMD RADEON HD 6350 dedicated card. It wont detect the monitor connected to my VGA port. I disabled Crossfire, and I tried to enable multi displays in the BIOS, but my BIOS doesn't have a video option in the settings. I tried updating the BIOS from A13 to A17, but it didn't help. Why doesn't my machine have video options in the BIOS? how can I arrange two displays, one VGA and the other on the DVI?

Thanks in advance,

  • HD 6350 doesn't support Crossfire nor does the 990 system and Eyefinity is also not supported on all ATI cards. The operation of AMD CrossFireX™ technology or dual mode requires a second AMD Radeon™ graphics card and an AMD CrossFireX Ready motherboard.

    Specific Eyefinity cards Do support 2, 3, 4 or 6 monitors.

  • What I want is to connect one monitor (VGA) to the integrated video card, and another (DVI) to the HD 6350.
