  1. Hi.

    I recently got a monitor from one of my friends saying that it was broken. Its a Dell 19in LCD. I have my main monitor a 22in Samsung wide screen So i just plugged it into the second DVI slot on my graphics Card. When i went into the display config i set up dual monitors just to see if it was working. The dell monitor would blink up then quit on me.

    When i was messing with the Display settings I made the Dell. Not my Samsung the Default Monitor. I unpluged the broken Dell and restarted. Now my computer regognizes the Samsung as the second monitor and it just shuts it off and recognizes nothing as the main.

    I managed to get it into safe mode and it recognized the samsung but every time i try go back to Normal Start the screen is blank.

    How can i get it to recognize the Samsung as my main?

    You might try reinstalling your cards video drivers
