6800GT Dual display problem?

    Can anyone help me? I can't get dual display to work with my 2 LCD's. I have
    a BFG 6800GT dual DVI PCI-E video card. I can get the primary one to work,
    but not the secondary LCD. I've switched LCD's and cables around and
    everything works that way, so I know its not a problem with the Lcd's or
    cables. I've gone into the settings and enabled dual view, but secondary DVI
    has no signal. Funny thing is that in the Nvidia settings it detects my
    second LCD as an analog and not digital. I'm using straight DVI to DVI, no
    adapters. Anyone help me with this? Thanks.

    Don't know if it's necessary, but have you enabled the second screen in windows as well?
