The system does not detect my second monitor connected the DVI. Appears in the settings of the words "digital device" and adjustment increase that I can set the resolution to 640x480. At D_SUB see each correctly.

What do I need to do to properly operate the space of two monitors?

system - Linux Mint 13,
Graphics Card - GeFroce GT520,
monitor 1 - ViewSonic VA1903wb (plugged into D_SUB),
monitor 2 - LG Flatron L1919S ( plugged into DVI using an adapter DVI--> D_SUB,
the nvidia drivers - version 304.60

Result of xrandr -q command.

This may be due to the adapter?

For anyone interested, the problem was on the side of the adapter. After replacing the adapter to another, the monitor is properly detected now it can also be freely configured.
