    Basically I want to be able to hook up two monitors to my ATI Radeon 8500LE
    128MB AGP video card. The video card has a VGA out, DVI out, and a TV out (S
    Video). My primary monitor is hooked up to the VGA out. I got a DVI (DVI-I
    or DVI-A) to VGA adapter with the pc so I can hook up my second monitor via
    the DVI out. The problem is whilst both monitors work the second monitor is
    green screen. I've tried 4 monitors as the secondary. Here is what I have
    done so far:

    1) Updated driver for video card, monitors, and updated XP SP1 and BIOS

    2) Hooked up second VGA monitor to DVI out using adapter

    3) Went to Display Properties >> Settings Tab and both monitors are there
    from the drop down: (Windows detects the second monitor)

    Both monitors are not really branded, although as I say, all monitors work
    fine in VGA, all are green in DVI out.

    4) Checked "Extend my windows desktop..."

    Could It be the the DVI out on my video card which I just bought or the DVI
    to VGA adapter?

    I have also tried the Windows troubleshooting, Tech Support.

    Any ideas or comments will be greatly appreciated.

    Many thanks
