Secondary Monitor detected but blank

  1. I'm trying to set-up two CRTs on my GeForce FX 5200. I'm using an adapter to convert DVI to VGA. The primary monitor is working fine, and secondary monitor is detected and is coming out of standby when windows starts, but it's staying blank.

    I have "extended my desktop" on the second monitor, and I can tell that it has been extended because my pointer will move off screen, but I can't figure out why I'm not getting an image.

    I tried switching monitors, and they both work on the normal VGA output ... any suggestion?
