Hi guys.

Recently I bought the same monitor as I have now, so I could have two matching monitors. I started out with connecting my second monitor with a DVI-D Dual Link cable to my motherboard. It worked, but I couldn't get 144hz. My main monitor is connected to my graphics card and I can run 144hz with no problem. I then went out and bought a DVI-D Dual Link Splitter to two DVI-D Dual Link ports. I connected the splitter to my graphics card and the two monitors to the splitter. Now both monitors show the same image and it doesn't recognize a second monitor.

What can I do to fix this problem?

Thank you in advance for your help.

Tobias.

Take out the splitter. It's functioning as it should; showing the same display on both monitors.

You need to connect both displays to your graphics card (without the splitter). If your graphics card does not have two DVI outputs, then you will need to use an adapter to either it's HDMI or DisplayPort Output.
