Hello guys! With this year's christmas gifts I received a new MSI GeForce GTX 1050 TI. Upon installing the card, followed by its drivers, everything seemed to be fine. However, once I moved on to connect my second monitor, the monitor wouldn't register in the computer. I am connecting this second monitor through a hdmi to dvi cord, going into the dvi port of my new graphics card. I had been successfully using this set up with my prior card, which was the Radeon R7 250. I know the second monitor is recieving a signal, as it reacts whenever I plug it into the computer. However, it'll still say no signal and displays a blank screen. In the control panel's display settings it won't even detect a second monitor is there, nor will the computers hardware list. Any idea on what to do here?

:welcome:   Vellex,

A clue perhaps! Other than hot swappable devices such as external USB HDDs and setting up some printers etc you should never ever connect anything to a computer while it is powered up, even the smallest of charge can cause serious damage to hardware.

 

A guide here on what to check and how to safely set up dual monitors.
