Dual monitor setup with IGP and graphics card

I have Asus m2a vm and ati radeon hd 6770.

I wanted to use two monitors (one 19" lcd and the other one 15" lcd) simultaneously.Both monitors have vga connectors.
how can i connect one monitor to the card and the other one to the motherboard and use them together.
there is some option like surroundview(I have enabled it).check out the link of the board if requred."http://www.asus.com/Motherboards/AMD_AM2/M2AVM/"

I think IGP is disabled when a card is inserted in pciex slot in m2a vm.But the surroundview option is available, so this should work.
Primary monitor is connected to the card.

connect the 2nd monitor to the mobos VGA output ( make sure surroundview is enabled in bios ) - and follow the instruction here. ;-)

@topgear
even after enabling surroundview IGP is not recognized in CCC and the monitor not is displaying anything after applying "extend my win...".

^^ have you followed the instruction mentioned on the above link ( the steps should be identical ).

Also another reason could be latest amd drivers no longer supports the IGP chip you have - wait for others reply.
 
@topgear
i followed the procedures.(read them already)
maybe the IGP is not recognized or is disabled.
how can i switch between gpus to see both of them are working.
or maybe use older drivers.

go to the both and enable the onboard GPU there may be a option somewhere in integrated peripherals or under the advance tab i have personal owed a Asus motherboard yet so not that sure
 
@tarun i dont see any option like enable both or similar.there is a option 'primary display adapter ' which is set to pciex and greyed it doesnt change

this is not possible. once a GPU is plugged in, IGP is disabled even if BIOS shows it as on. i have tested it. in BIOS IGP is shown to be ON but display is set as PEG. so you can't do it. the second display will show no signal.
 
@sam
then how do you use surroundview .the option is available. I was thinking of using vga of board and card to display them simultaneously

i am not sure but to use surround view you must use a GPU that can be paired with the IGP (Hybrid Crossfire) else IGP will be shut off.

looks like surround view is possible even without HybridCrossfireX. thanks for the links :smile:

can it be cause of same VGA cables? maybe you need VGA & DVI cables. if you have DVI cables connect any monitor to IGP with surround view on.

Get a DVI-I to VGA converter and connect second monitor to the graphic card.
