new Lenovo M92P with AMD7450 graphics card. Currently have Lenovo L2251 monitor connected using a D-DVI (single link) cable. Under Device Manager it appears to Win 7 64 bit as ANALOG.

Can not get dual displays even detected when 2nd display is either VGA on Motherboard or VGA via Lenovo DISPLAYport-to-VGA adapter.

Tried changing BIOS from the various video start up options.

What is the secret ?

Your monitor doesn't have a DVI input, so if you're using a DVI adapter cable to the DSUB input, then you are indeed using an analog connection.

It does, however, have a DisplayPort input -- and your card has a DisplayPort output;  so you should use a DisplayPort cable to connect them.

I suspect that if you do that you'll be able to support a 2nd analog display with no problem.

Solved the issue.  Both the display port and VGA from the motherboard are disabled when the PCI adapter installed.

Using the DisplayPort from the PCI adapter as 2nd monitor worked fine.

Existing monitor was using DVI port and was a digital connection it just the description that throws you off since it displays the monitor as "Lenovp LXXX...Analogue" but it in fact was digital.  It has no choice to be digital when the DVI cable being used is DVI-D - no analogue pins.

Thanks
