im in the process of googling this with no success yet... ive been running duel monitors via a GeForce FX5500 with good success on my XP desktop machine. its an AGP card. now i have in another room collecting dust a nice 19" widescreen lcd monitor that i use occasionally with my laptop. so i think, hey why not plug that into the vga port on the back of the integrated motherboard, which is an MSI board, i cant see the model number. why do this? i figure i can use the widescreen monitor or tv or video and the other two for my normal pursuits (you never can have enough screen real estate if you ask me) anyway, no luck. with the geforce installed the integrated video card apparently is disabled. take the card out and the integraded video works. ok, so i look in the bios and i try to see if there is a setting to change there to allow both to run. its set to pci so i change it to agp. no change. the device manager only sees the agp card, i forgot to look at what it shows w/o the card in. :dontknow: so currently then short of finding the software solution is to stick with the duel. i have a pci slot available. i wonder if i can get a pci video card that would resolve my issue. this board doesnt have many slots, only the one agp (next time i am going for the additional slots -- $&@#) anyway if someone here by chance has an idea on this let me know.
