Dual Monitors on Optiplex 990, VGA and DVI.

I am trying to connect to monitors to my optiplex 990. It has a AMD RADEON HD 6350 dedicated card. It wont detect the monitor connected to my VGA port. I disabled Crossfire, and I tried to enable multi displays in the BIOS, but my BIOS doesn't have a video option in the settings. I tried updating the BIOS from A13 to A17, but it didn't help. Why doesn't my machine have video options in the BIOS? how can I arrange two displays, one VGA and the other on the DVI?

Thanks in advance,

David

Re: Dual Monitors on Optiplex 990, VGA and DVI.

HD 6350 doesn't support Crossfire nor does the 990 system and Eyefinity is also not supported on all ATI cards. The operation of AMD CrossFireX™ technology or dual mode requires a second AMD Radeon™ graphics card and an AMD CrossFireX Ready motherboard.

Specific Eyefinity cards Do support 2, 3, 4 or 6 monitors.

Re: Dual Monitors on Optiplex 990, VGA and DVI.

What I want is to connect one monitor (VGA) to the integrated video card, and another (DVI) to the HD 6350.
