Dual head display problem

I am using two LG L1920P with an Nvidia Ti4200 Vga , one is connected to the vga port and the other to the DVI port.

The monitor connected to the VGA port has a terrible display in contrast with the DVI one that shows very sharp and clear image. The VGA one also has a terrible color "adjustment" and shows "different" colors from the DVI one , the VGA is a lot darker than the DVI.

Any suggestions??

Do you have your two screens configured differently in xorg.conf?

It could simply be the monitors, have you tried using an adapter and swapping the monitors where they plug into the back?

Yes I have two monitors in xorg.conf , I tested the monitors with Win2K and works perfectly.
