dual monitor issue

Threaded View

I just setup everything to run 2 monitors for a larger dektop, which I need
badly.  I am running Win 2000 and have one video card in the VGP slot
(monitor 1) and one in the PCI (monitor 2).  I setup everything in the
display properties as well.

The problem is,  all I am seeing is a mess on the other monitor.  I see
faint traces of my mouse when I move it over so it is setup properly.  Does
anyone or has anyone had this issue before?

Is it my PCI card as this is for the 2nd monitor or is it the monitor

any help is appreciated.

Have you tried the PCI card alone yet?  I"m wondering if
it's physically damaged.  If it's a modern PCI card, having
a 2nd one can also be a significant increase in load on the
power supply, is it up to the task?

You might also try another driver for the PCI card if you
hadn't already.

Re: dual monitor issue

the PCI card was working alone before.

I have a 400watt power supply.

Maybe try a drifferent driver and see what happens.
