Currently i have two monitors, one connected by hdmi and one connected by vga. When i turn my pc on, the one connect by vga shows the booting into windows part then goes black and switches to the one connect to hdmi. After switching and booting into windows, the vga one doesn't work and goes into sleep mode. I've tried alot of options it barely did anything, Is there a way to fix this?

pc specs: (idk if this will help)
Ryzen 3 3200g
Radeon Vega 8
Adata XPG Gammix D10 2X8gb DDR4 3200mhz
AsRock B450M HDV R4.0
Toshiba 1TB 7200RPM HDD

Unlikely. You'd need an active adapter that can convert the digital signal from your graphics card to the analog signal that your monitor can understand. Many adapters out there claim to do it, but most don't.

More than likely, your motherboard can only display via either analog (VGA) or digital (DVI/HDMI) but not both at the same time. If you want to use dual monitors, use the DVI-D output to a digital input on your second display.

If you're not sure, please provide us with the model numbers of the displays you are attempting to use.

My 2nd monitor only has VGA, will it work if i buy an Dvi-d to vga adapter?
