Can I use my onboard video card for a third monitor?

By baygreg ·
I currently am using an NVIDIA GeForce 8400 GS PCI-E video card for my two monitors and am wanting to add a third. How can I do this? It seems that by using a PCI-E video card that my onboard video card is disabled or unable to be used simultaneously. What configuration can I use to have all three of my monitors work? I do have 2 AGP slots available & I am using Vista. Maybe I can use my onboard video card along with a different AGP video card? Let me know my options. Thanks

I doubt that your on-board video will play well with others, but I could be wrong.

I think the only way to make this work is to have the same video chipset on multiple adapters (Nvidia)and their drivers will do the rest.

I think you can enable it in your BIOS

If you can, it should show up in display properties. However I am told this is Impossible to do with Vista unless you have two identical cards. But if you have XP, it should be able to work.

is right. If you enable the onboard video you will lose access to the Video cards. Add another PCI card the same as the one that you have.
