Question about ASUS M2N-MX Motherboard
I purchased a mainbaord of ASUS M2N-MX and installed all components properly. Then i plugged in ATI Radeon 7000 dual display card on this machine. After windows loading, a VGA card found then I allocate driver for ATI Radeon 7000 Series. But I got an error that "This device cannot start." on last step of hardware configuration wizard.
I tried a lot, but failed to configure the card. Then I replace the board with ASUS M2A-MX(ATI Chipset), but the same problem occurs. Before this was working with multi display panels with other boards like Gigabyte GA-M61SME-S2.
Your Motherboard has an onboard video chipset made by Nvidia. Nvidia and ATI have a history of not playing nice with each other.
I have 2 possible solutions for you.
1.) Remove the Radeon card and use the Nvidia onboard card (Essentially a Geforce 6100)
2.) Enter the bios (Usually done by hitting <Delete> or <F12> while the computer is booting up) Your Motherboards manual can tell you for certain. Then find the options for onboard video and disable it.
Then boot up the PC, When it say starting Windows press <F8> to bring up the windows boot menu. Select "Start in Safe mode" Once this loads up open the device manager, look under "Display adapters" find the entry for the Nvidia adapter, right click on it and select either "Uninstall" or "Disable this device"
Which you choose depends on your personal preference Whether you like Nvidia or ATI boards better.
If it makes your decision easier a Geforce 6100 is roughly equivalent to a Radeon 8500 in performance.
I hope this helps
