1) make sure both are plugged into the video card and not the mobo
2) Go onto controls and see if you can manually set the resolution
3) Make certain that both monitors have 1920x1200 resolution

That's all I can really think of right now.

ATI Radeon R9 280 x2 Crossfire

Okay, I think I found out about the dual mode and both having to be the same and if one is lower res than the other that is what they both will be. Sucks, but it is what it is. I still have not been able to get my onboard hdmi to be recognized. Anyone???

if you have a dedicated video card you cant use the on-board gpu. unless its got an amd gpu on the motherboard then you can go into bios and turn on surround view mode which enables both gpus to be used. but im not sure if your board supports that function. alos you need to install the drivers for the on-board gpu
