  1. I'm on a company computer,

    Trying to set up two different Monitors to work from, The motherboard has a built in Video card (NVIDIA) and i plugged into the PCI slots a TRIDEN 3D Video Card That has a regular (NOT DVI) monitor plug in (So there are two non-dvi Monitors plugged in)

    i downloaded the drivers for the second video card and it doesnt access the other monitor the video card i plug in (The TRIDENT) takes over the built in video card (NVIDIA) so i only get vision from 1 monitor instead of the other.

    (I got the windows xP drivers because that is what i am running)

    is there a way to overcome this inorder to bypass vision to both computers?
    and how do i install the drivers?
    (pretty much how do i go about installing dual monitors)


    Thank you very much

    You will probably need to disable the on board video and get a video card with 2 VGA ports to do this
