  • Multi-Monitor on the D201GLY

    Hey guys, I have a bit of a conundrum. I have a Intel D201GLY and it's great, but I would like to add an additional screen or two. To do so I bought a Radeon 9000 PCI off eBay to wack into the PCI slot for some extra VGA connectors. The problem is I cannot get the Radeon to work when the internal graphics is enabled. It shows up in Device Manager with an exclamation mark ("Device cannot start").

    Has anyone tried a similar thing with their D201GLY before? Were you able to resolve this issue?

    Cheers

    Normally you only have one or the other, not both internal and external video. Does the Radeon 9000 come with two video connectors?

      Depending on the boards you can use Internal and External. If he checks in the BIOS sometimes Ive seen an option where it says Video Source, Both, or PCI only etc. he needs to see what his options are there

        most motherboards do not allow simultaneous use of both onboard and external video, and many motherboards will automatically disable the onboard video when an external video card is plugged in.

        you generally need to use a video card that has two video outputs. if your radeon 9000 has 2 outputs, then use those outputs and leave the onboard VGA disconnected.

          Yeah I figured as much :P

          In the BIOS you can set it to Internal, PCI or Auto. With it set to Internal the integrated graphics work just fine, and the PCI graphics show with the afore mentioned exclamation mark. With it set to PCI, the integrated can't be seen at all.

          Reason I wanted to use the integrated as well was to run an additional two monitors, but nevermind Thanks!

            thats not true, i believe if the video card is agp then yes its one or the other, but if its pci it should allow both onboard and pci cards to work. i believe its just a bios setting he needs to tweak to make it work.

              its a bit expensive, but Matrox Parhelia PCI is able to handle 3 VGA output (through the 2 DVI port)...
