- What resolution are you trying to run?
- Any specific reason you are using an HDMI-VGA adapter and not DP-VGA or DVI-VGA adapter?
- Which adapters are you using? Send the link.
1.- The resolution for each monitor would be 1440x900. It's not like we can change it manually, as when the blinking is triggered, the computer is unusable;
2.- Well, for starters, those are more expensive than the HDMI-VGA adapters. Would it make any difference either way?
3.- We tried these:
No matter which ones we use, having two monitors connected through adapters triggers this issue, as far as we can see. Individually they work fine, but together... no can do. I want to make sure that this is a rule I was not aware of or a problem with that GPU we bought.
2 passive connections should work. What are the monitors? Make and model?
I would try a DP-VGA adapter instead of HDMI-VGA adapter.
Right now, I cannot say the specific model, but these two are LG displays, 20" and 18", although I hardly think it makes the difference, as I said earlier, I connected one monitor and the TV through HDMI-VGA adapters and it would do the same exact thing. Now, the TV through HDMI and one monitor through the adapters wouldn't trigger the blinking at all, but both the TV and the monitor connected through adapters would trigger the blinking.
At this rhythm, with the money we've spent on adapters, we might as well buy a new monitor with an HDMI port.
