nVidia 5200 FX Dualview Problem

  1. I have the above card and a Athlon 1GHz box running win2k.

    Every time I try to enable the second monitor from the windows control panel, the computer crashes, right when it pops up the 15 seconds message, everything frezzes, 15 doesn't do anything, no caps lock, no control alt delete. Nothing. I have to reboot then same old crap.

    I switched from ATI to nvidia so I could avoid the menu bar across to frickin monitors. Plus I wanted to run them at different sizes, (why DualView should be cool) But the TV out sucks, the multimonitor crashes.

    What gives?

    What kind of a card is it? VGA + DVI + TV-out? Which versions of Detonator drivers have you tried?
