I am having trouble getting dual monitor setup to work on a M58p 7220 AK8. I have two vga flat panel monitors. I have a DisplayPort to VGA dongle on the Display port and a monitor connected, as well as a monitor connected to the VGA port. When I boot, both screens remain black, and indictae no signal. A single monitor plugged into the VGA port works fine at boot. A single monitor plugged to the display port remains black at boot.
I went to BIOS setup, Devices, Video Setup and set the graphics to use the integrated hardware. Other than that, there is no selections to enable/disable the displayport or to set the displayport as primary or secondary.
What am I doing wrong?

Ok, figured it out.....with the setup described above, when the machine is powered on, the POST test and bios boot logo does not show up for about 30+ seconds....!?!?!?1? When it does, it shows up on the VGA port connected montior. It is not until windows' boots that the displayport monitor comes on and becomes the primary display. weird.
