Hi,

I have a dedicated graphics card which only has one slot. Its the white slot.. not the blue slot. I assume you know what that means.

One screen works fine. I just brought a second screen and plugged it into the blue slot. I assume this is the on board graphics slot. When I turn on the second screen it says it isn't getting a signal.

Currently I have my second screen plugged into what I assume is on-board graphics. I then have my main screen plugged into my graphics card.

I assume this problem is because my primary graphics card is doing all the lifting maybe? How do I make the second screen usable?

My graphics card has 2 HDMI ports and a white one. Would it work with the HDMI cable? Would it be possible to use the onboard graphics for one screen and main graphics card for the other?
