I'm a little confused here

I have two monitors, a Samsung S23B350 and a HP 2159m

I tried to connect a DVI-D to HDMI cable to both of my monitors but nothing displays. It doesn't matter what end is connected to the PC, both dont work. But in the long run the DVI end has to be connected to the PC if I want to duel screen because I only have 1 hdmi output.

HDMI-HDMI works fine though, on both monitors.

Is it because it is a DVI-D to HDMI cable? Should I just buy a DVI-D to DVI-D cable? or am I just doing something wrong?

My graphics card is a HD Radeon 6950 if that matters.

The HP has DVI-D, HDMI, and VGA. Use a DVI-D cable for this monitor.

The Samsung has HDMI and VGA. Use an HDMI cable for this monitor.

What ports does the video card have? Have you enabled the second monitor in the AMD Catalyst Control Center?
