Well just to make sure I didn't miss anything.

What have you tried already? Take it you already have 1 dvi-vga adapter for your first port for your first crt?
Why do you say it doesn't work, you tried an adapter on the second port and it didn't work? Do you have more than 1 adapter you could try (if you didnt use one for the first port, or did u try switching them?)

Is it a load issue? Does it work with two DVIs plugged in? What if only the 1 adapter is plugged into the second port with your crt?

Cheers.

RE: Dual Display
ok...all my monitors use VGA,i have more than 1 dvi-vga adapter...i tried hooking up a CRT with the adapter to the 2nd dvi port and all i got was*no signal* on the screen...so i looked around on the inet and i found a couple articles stating that for the 2nd port it can only use dvi,it cant use an adapter...the cord for one of the monitors i tried has vga on both ends,what if i were to replace that cord with a dvi on 1 end and vga on other end..would that work...or will it work if i got a displayport-vga cable? and will it work with a dvi-vga adapter for one and a mini-displayport-vga cable for 2nd one?

RE: Dual Display
That situation never happened to me recently, so I'd check with either AMD or Sapphire support, to see what they say.

RE: Dual Display
Ok i got my mini displayport to vga cable in and it works flawlessly... now im able to run 2 monitors :-)

so basically,the 2ns dvi on a radeon can not use an adapter of dvi-vga it has to be straight up dvi connection
