  1. This device cannot find enough free resources that it can use. (Code 12)

    Thats the message i got in device manager with this card, i cant even get it to start at all. And im trying to set it up as a second video card for a second monitor, ive had it setup like this before with the same 300/305. Any ideas of how to fix?

    MSI K8n Neo2 Platinum MB (nforce3 chipset)
    AMD Athlon 64 3000+ Venice
    512 x2 Dual Channel Corsair XMS
    nVidia 5600 Ultra 128mb

    Im only using a second video card for a second monitor because i dont want to lose performance from my main video card by having it run dual, when all i want it for is to watch movies and stuff on my tv.

    Hello! Welcome to TechSpot

    Sounds like an irq conflict in the bios.
    The 5700 has dvi vga and svideo out.
    I'm assuming the other card is pci 32mb?
    Check HERE
    I'd recommend a card with less headache.
