I am using a Dell Inspiron 537s 64 bit system, windows 10 O/S

Monitors are: Main one is a Dell Monitor and the secondary one is a Acer.

When I first attempted to hook up two monitors I used a DVI to DVI cable, got nothing, said no cable attached..

So next I used a VGA Splitter male to female for a 2 monitor hook up.

So now this part works,BUT both monitors show the same screen no matter what you do.  I did go into Display and it will not recognize the second monitor..

Anyone have a solution, what do I need and how to set up, and maybe what the computer is missing, maybe need to install something in the computer..

Is it an onboard graphics? I had to buy a second graphics card for mine, I have 3 monitors.

If you use a VGA splitter they will both show the same image/Desktop.

As long as it has two connectors on the card than you should be fine. My video card has two connectors on it one is regular vga and the other is hdmi I think. I could not live without two monitors. It's great havin them.
