Greetings all.
For the life of me, I can't figure out why I can't use 2 monitors simultaneously. Please help me so I could work on 1 monitor while the other plays videos of cats

Specs:
- 2x 8GB RAM
- Nvidia Geforce GTX 1050 TI ( Ports: 1 HDMI, 1 DVI, 1 DisplayPort )
  • MSI MAG Z390 TOMAHAWK (MS-7B18) ( Ports: 1 HDMI, 1 DisplayPort )
  • Nvidia GeForce Experience + Nvidia Control Panel with latest drivers updated
  • Monitor A: SAMSUNG S24C350BL ( Ports: 1 HDMI, 1 VGA )
  • Monitor B: SAMSUNG S24F350FHM ( Ports: 1 DVI, 1 VGA )
  • Cables: HDMI-HDMI ; HDMI-DVI ; HDMI-VGA ; VGA-DVI ; DVI-DVI
Both monitors work alone, in all the ports with all the cables, so there is no port/cable/monitor hardware issue as far as I can see.
When both are connected to the GPU ( 1 HDMI-HDMI, 1 DVI-DVI ) nothing seem to work. Tried all possible combinations, including connecting one to GPU and one to the Motherboard.

Please help.
Thanks.

and why happened when you have 2 connected? both black screen?
When both connected, it seems the HDMI port of the GPU has priority over any other port.
While Monitor B is connected to it, monitor A is black screen no matter what other port I use
While Monitor A is connected to it, none of them work, both show black screen and the LED light is flashing, meaning it's connected but "PC is not ON""
