    Hi guys, I recently upgraded my PC after struggling with my old one for years and years. I was using 2 screens with that computer, but on this new one the monitor wont detect.

    The monitor in question is a ViewSonic 17" ve710s. It uses a VGA cord. My GFX card is a 1080ti. My main screen, the BenQ works in both the VGA and the HDMI. The ViewSonic only has a VGA, and I had to buy a little converter thing just to get it to plug into the GFX card VGA port. The monitor itself is old, but it works. Except it won't detect.

    You guys have any idea's? I'm at my wits end on what to do. I don't have the coin (I saved everything for this new PC), but I'm willing to go out and buy a new monitor if I have to. Having only 1 monitor is ridiculously inefficient for my work. The GFX card has 1 HDMI slot, 4 Displayports and a VGA slot. I'm worried if I do buy another monitor, that it won't work either.

    A rather concerned user,
    Al

    What adapter did you buy if the video card has a VGA port? Can you post pictures of the back of the computer? Does your computer also have integrated graphics? If yes and if that's where the monitor is plugged in then it needs to be moved to the 1080 card.

    I assume in Windows when you try to enable the monitor it doesn't detect it in either Windows or the Nvidia Control Panel?

    I ditched the monitor and got a new screen that works. Thanks for the attempted help, Triple6.
