    I am trying to setup two crt displays to my computer. I have a powermac g4 and I am running 10.3.2. I have the ati radeon 9000 pro graphics that has one dvi output and one adc output. I have one my displays hooked up to the dvi output and then to a dvi to vga adapter. The other one is hooked up to the adc output with an adc to dvi adapter and then a dvi to vga adapter. The display that is hooked up to the dvi output works fine but the one that is hooked up to the adc output gets no signal. My computer can see it, but it isn't gettng a signal. How can I fix this problem. Thanks for your help.

    I think your ADC to DVI to VGA might be messing it up. I do believe you should get just a ADC to VGA connector, then it will probably work.

    i would have to agree


    I would have to agree that the best way (the way it works for me anyway) is that i have a DVI to VGA converter on on, and an ADC to VGA converter on the other. Then go into display pref's and its pretty straight forward from there. I set this up about a week ago and have had no problems. The only problem i had was getting the ADC to VGA converter (took them 4 weeks to get it in for some strnge reason.) anyway, hope it all goes well for you.
