Hi all, (PC SPECS ARE AT THE BOTTOM)

I am currently trying to set up a secondary monitor for my Gaming PC.
My First monitor I have been using for almost a year now and has been connected to my PC via HDMI, however my second monitor has only VGA and DVI ports. When I plug a VGA cable into my first monitor and then to my computer, no signal is given. This occurs for the second monitor as well. But when I plug my laptop into my monitor through VGA, it works perfectly. The same goes for the Second monitor.

My best guess is that my computer wont output an analog signal, but I don't have a DVI cable to test this and I don't live in a place where getting one is easy so buying a DVI cable is the last option to try out ideally.

I have tried going through Display settings to "Detect" a second monitor but it cannot find any.

My PC has 2 HDMI ports, 2 DVI and 1 VGA ports.

OS Version: Microsoft Windows 10 Pro, 64 bit
