I have an ideacentre 700-25ISH with two HDMI ports, and i have two HD monitors. the first monitor is connected to the "primary" HDMI port and works perfectly. i tried connecting the second monitor to the other HDMI port, and it's not recognized. the only way i get it to work is connecting thru the VGA port, and of course that doesn't give me HD. i now have the second monitor connected by VGA and HDMI, but the HDMI isn't recognized. any ideas?

It won't work using two HDMI ports. The graphics cards disables the HDMI port of the motherboard. Unfortunately, most computers are set up this way. You would need a graphics card with two HDMI ports, but then you'd have to watch for power consumption due to the weak power supplies.
