I have just set up dual monitor on my desktop.

The major monitor is acer 19' LCD on DVI (it supports both DVI and VGA)
The 2nd monitor is a 17' LCD on VGA (it supports VGA only)
The 19' LCD on DVI flickers.

The visual card is nVidia XFX GT220 with one DVI and one VGA
The operating system is Win7 32bit Ultimate.
The power is WIDETECH 655 Platinum, Model ATX550.
The motherboard is GIGABYTE P55A-UD3

To solve the problem, I re-installed the OS, but it doesn't help.
I bought an expensive DVI cable instead of the one provided by ACER, it also doesn't help.

I have already updated the visual driver to the latest version.
It also flickers (sometimes, not always) when I put the 19'LCD on DVI only (not dual monitor). But never happend by using VGA.

I googled the issue, found some similar problems, but none of them could help me to solve it.
What else can I try?
Thanks.

I tried to switch the major and the 2nd monitor, set the 17' to be the major, it also doesn't help at all.
