Win XP Pro Video quit working

  1. Greetings,
    I recently added a 2nd HD (1TB Segate Barracuda) to my system (Asus P5B MB, 80g hd, 3ghz Intel P4, 3gig ram, ATI Radeon X1900 dual port graphic card.) To make a long story shorter, I installed windows XP Pro on new drive with only 1 monitor connected to my system at the time and had no problems. I was able to update Internet Explorer and Download a few items. I shut the system down and reconnected 2nd video device (TV) and upon restart to new drive neither video device was seeing a video signal. Of course I tried going back to 1 monitor, swapping ports, shutting down,etc with no luck. Both video devices still work on booting to original drive. Any suggestions.

    Thanks

    Any errors in the Device Manager?

    Nope, but I figured it out thank you. I booted in safe mode with vga support and downloaded drivers for the graphics card. All is well now....so far

    Thank You
