Hi from Keith. I am attempting to get my Radeon 9600 XT AGP to output through the seven-pin composite video socket. In Display Properties I have the two screens (1 and 2), but when I try to activate the second screen (click 2. Default monitor . . . then check Extend my Windows desktop onto this monitor, then Apply, it deactivates itself again! I have, connected to my card, the primary monitor (which goes fine) into the first DVI socket, nothing in the second DVI socket, and my seven-pin composite video dongle in the seven-pin composite socket.

An nVidia 7800 is the best agp card made, as agp has been taken over by pci-ex16 but any AGP x8 card will do, if its just for word processing and internet stuff just go with a cheaper one. found on on ebay for £20 http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/NVIDIA-7800-GS-AGP-Graphics-card_W0QQitemZ380205251305QQcmdZViewItemQQptZUK_Computing_Computer_Components_Graphics_Video_TV_Cards_TW?hash=item5885ffbae9
Yes, they both will act independently if you choose to use it that way or they will show the same picture, one is a DVI output and the other is VGA. Use the ATI’s CATALYST software suite provides the ultimate software required to enjoy the full acceleration of your ATI Graphics Accelerator card. You can use it to separate your Primary video from your Secondary video.
Hi, Im guessing that your motherboard has an intergrated video card & you installed the 9600 card into the opened AGP slot on the board. If you would have listed the model number of your motherboard I would't have to guess. What you need to do is enter your bios & make a change so your bios loads the AGP slot & not the intergrated video card. How to get into your bios? As soon as you turn on the Pc press the Delete key every two seconds. If your system fails to load the bios than you will need to try some of the others F keys. Let the PC finish loading. Re-start the PC. As it starts up try the F1 key every two seconds. Continue in this manner using these other F keys untill your system boots into the bios. F2, F10 or F12. One will work for you. Once in the bios use your manual if you have one. You are looking for Video display. You want the bios to load the AGP slot first, this will disable the intergrated video automatically. Your Pc will now see your 9600 video card & you will be able to load it's software. If the 9600 uses ATI's software you should update the Radeon software by going to ATI/AMD & update your video software with the latest drivers. Click the link I have posted below to upgrade your Radeon 9600XT card. Good idea to save the link. http://ati.amd.com/support/driver.html
