Normally you only have one or the other, not both internal and external video. Does the Radeon 9000 come with two video connectors?
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?
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!
its a bit expensive, but Matrox Parhelia PCI is able to handle 3 VGA output (through the 2 DVI port)...
