Dual display cards - DELL Optiplex GX260

by TraverseTek In reply to Dual display cards - DELL ...

If I'm guessing correctly, it sounds like you are trying to use the onboard video chipset and a second card plugged into the AGP slot on the motherboard, correct?

That won't work because you can only use one AGP device at a time. So what you want to do is return the second video card you bought, and exchange it for a PCI card. Then you will be able to set up the dual monitors.

Good luck :-)
