  1. Hello all im new here, I will be coming here to try and get some answers if I can to different problems i might have. I will also help answer any questions if I can. :wave: I have a question, i havea low profile g550 duel video card and can't seem to get it to work. When I put it in the pci slot and turn on the PC it would work up until the windows splash screen, then the main monitior turn off. The second monitiior don't even come on. Could i have a bad y cable? Thanks for and help

    Aren't G550s AGP-cards?
    I have one in my PC and it is definitely NOT a PCI card.
    From Windows 2000 onwards, there is basic Matrox driver-support in Windows.
    Matrox also has universal Drivers for the G200-G550 group, downloadable from their web.
    Did you install any Matrox drivers at all?
