Dual Monitor setup - not detecting second monitor

Hi, I connect 2nd monitor with DVI-D to VGA adapter. In Control centre and 'detect' monitors, it is only picking up the one.

A quick google search suggests dual monitor setup with this graphics card is possible.

Thank you in advance.

Re: Dual Monitor setup - not detecting second monitor

Make sure your DVI-D to VGA adapter is "ACTIVE" type and not Passive also what Windows version do you have installed?

Make & Model of GPU Card (HD 5570)?

What does Windows Setup/Control Panel - Display show?

From AMD Support about your GPU card supporting Multiple Monitors: ATI Radeon™ HD 5570 Graphics  and this about VGA to DVI connections : https://support.amd.com/en-us/search/faq/164
