Better to use 1 video card with dual output, you can split the monitor - separate or different applications on each monitor or you can also extent the application window to the other monitor (useful for spread sheets, applications with timeline, etc.)

WHERE IS THE VIDEOCARD LOCATION AT


1) KJ387AA#ABA comes up as an HP Pavilion a6403w desktop computer,

http://h20000.www2.hp.com/bizsupport/TechSupport/Document.jsp?lang=en&cc=us&objectID=c01412768&jumpid=reg_R1002_USEN

2) Uses the Foxconn MCP73M01H1 motherboard,

http://h20000.www2.hp.com/bizsupport/TechSupport/Document.jsp?objectID=c01357119

Looking at the photo of the motherboard, observe the aluminum finned heatsink in the middle of the board, with Foxconn on it.
(Northbridge chip is under heatsink)

The long black slot below it is where a graphics card goes.
(Video card or Graphics card, same/same)
It is a PCI-Express x16 slot. A PCI Express graphics card goes here.

(The Locking Arm on the PCI Express x16 slot, looks as though you press down on it, to unlock. You don't. Gently pull up a little to install or remove a graphics/video card)

The white long PCI slot at the bottom can also be used for a graphics/video card.

If there is no video/graphics card in either of these expansion slots, you are using Integrated Graphics. The graphics from the motherboard, and not a graphics (Video) card.

Integrated Graphics is also known as OnBoard Graphics.
ON the motherBOARD.

This is from an Nvidia GeForce 7100 graphics chipset.

(Sits under that aluminum heatsink with Foxconn on it)

If you are using the Integrated Graphics of the motherboard, you have a VGA monitor plugged into the blue VGA port, number 4,

http://h20000.www2.hp.com/bizsupport/TechSupport/Document.jsp?objectID=c01357119

(Scroll down to Back I/O Ports)

or you have a flat LCD screen monitor plugged into the white DVI port, number 16.

Acer Aspire M5641 has a black screen, Power fan is on, CPU fan is on, hard drive has several initial clicking sounds but motor is not running; and i replace a new cmos-bios battery. But nothing...


if by pushing on the power button the machine does not immediately shut down, and you have to hold it down for 5 or 10 seconds, this would indicate that the system is fully functional. the problem would be , your monitor or integrated graphics (NVIDIA GeForce 7100 / nForce 630i) are bad. the graphics can be resolved by adding a graphics card to your system for a reasonable price that varies from 25.00 to 85.00 dollars. the proper card would be a PCI Express video graphics card. here is a link that will provide you with many different options suitable to your need. i suggest you take into consideration if you are a gamer , that you aquire one equal too or greater than 512 self supported ram. 512 will by far exceed the factory video capabilities, enabling a much higher quality video resolution and clearer video /gaming viewing.

Setting up dual monitors with NVIDIA 7300 GS Graphics Adapter


so...
your computer don't recognize your nvidia graphic card in PCI Express slot.
you are runing now with computer's integrated graphic card?
if so then you won't have dualview option. in this case it looks for me like you've installed in the wrong way your graphic card.

your NV GeForce 7300 GS has 2 video output?
if yes then you should have the option for 2 monitors on nVIDIA control panel (i have check my nVIDIA GeForce 7600gt and in my case this option is present but is enabled only if i connect the second monitor, so try do so)

you have installed the latest nVIDIA drivers from the official website? http://www.nvidia.com/Download/index.aspx?lang=en-us

check if your video card is corect installed start/run type in " devmgmt.msc ". it will open device manager and under the display adapter tab you should see what video card you use now.

Installed new video card but the signal remains black


REMOVE THE CARD AND UNINSTALL THE VIDEO CARD IN ADD REMOVE PROGRAMS. THEN REMOVE VIDEO CARD AND INSTALL DRIVERS THEN INSTALL YOUR VIDEO CARD. I HAVE THIS SAME VIDEO CARD AND HAD THE SAME PROBLEM.THIS WAS THE ONLY WAY I COULD GET IT TO WORK. ALSO YOU NEED TO DISABLE THE VIDEO CARD THAT IS ON YOUR MOTHERBOARD. YOU CAN DO THIS IN CONTROL PANEL. ADMINASTRATIVE TOOLS THEN CLICK COMPUTER MANAGEMENT THEN CLICK DEVICE MANAGER GO TO YOUR DISPLAY DRIVERS AND DISABLE YOUR GRAPHICS CONTROLER. THAT SHOULD DO IT. HAPPY NEW YEAR.

The grafics on my computer are fuzzy. What's an easy fix.


There are many fixes that you can make to solve this problem. However the best way to fix this is to get a new video or graphics card. My computer runs on a NVidia Riva 128/128ZX graphic/Video Card and operates with a Gateway EV700 CRT monitor. The NVidia Riva 128/128ZX card is an older one, but is a very strong card, I'd choose any NVidia graphics card. You may also want to check for a new monitor like a flat screen LCD monitor, that may help clear things up a bit.

Good luck!

Support for ISV-certified PCI Express graphics cards up to 150 watts and with up to 512MB graphics memory including: nVIDIA® Quadro® FX 4500;
nVIDIA Quadro FX 3450; Quadro FX 1400; ATI™ FireGL™ V3100; nVIDIA Quadro NVS 280; All graphics cards support dual monitor configurations
Although it may not be your video card thats the problem. when youre computers posts, it beeps once. If it is beeping more then once youll want to check with the board manufacturer to see what the code its giving means.
