Question about Color Graphics PREDATOR LT4, (16 MB) Graphic Card

Card thinks there is 4 monitors when only 2 are hooked up

I am running windows 2000 with this card. It has a dongle with 4 connectors to connect up to 4 monitors. I only have 2 connected and have the other two disable in the device manager but the computer thinks there is four monitors. So it uses the very right side of the right monitor as the middle of the total display and the resolution choices are crazy like 4096 x 480. I have tried reinstalling but the same thing happens. How do you get the card to recognize that there is only two monitors connected???

Re: Card thinks there is 4 monitors when only 2 are...

Is the dongle an active or passive device? It could also be that the card is set up in a mode that forces, rather than senses, the 4 monitor option (e.g., I think this device supports composite mode). Please provide info on this dongle, and whether this setup was working as in now broken (and then what did you change before it broke) or if this is something new altogether.

If you're having trouble on display in your monitor,please check the following;

1. Check your CPU if its responding,booting or the power light indicator is running.
2. Check the video card slot pin if its align and clean,as well as the serial/com cable connected ion both ends.
3. Try to replace another video card, might the current attached is damage.
4. Check all cords and see if there's some intermittent lines neither need to replace new cord.

I had a custom built computer that was damaged in shipping: P55A-UD4, i7 860, ATI HD 5870, 8GB ram, Windows 64 bit, 120GB SSD running 3 monitors (2x20" 5:4, 24" 16:10). It would start-up but fail...

With everything you have i would look at power supply and see if you have enough power supply to operate video card motherboard etc.
Power supply could be overloaded and not able to operate video card correctly.
Which could cause issues with trying to run 2 or 3 monitors

Unfortunately, there is no way to run on board graphics with your dedicated graphics card. One will always be disabled, (would need a hybrid SLI/Crossfire board for that option).

You will need to upgrade to a graphics card that has dual DVI & or VGA outputs built in to be able to hook up 2 monitors. (output type of port depends on what type of connector you have on the monitor cables)

Make sure your monitor is set up to recieve what ever signal you are wanting via the monitor's menu. There should be an input button on the monitor to select the signal type. The connection really doesn't matter as long as you are able to use the monitor. There could be something wrong with the connector on the video card. Also make sure you are using the card and are not using the onboard graphics connection by mistake. If the problem persists it is more than likely the card.

You could find the exact model of your graphics card by clicking on run and then running dxdiag. You will then goto the display tab and it will show you what you need to know. Then just google the drivers for whatever card you have.

Need to connect 2 displays to Vision Tek RADEON X1300256 card

You probably should have gotten a card that had Dual DVI because it will be two separate outputs instead of one... I would take it back and get the correct Graphics Card.

Defect ASUS V8420 ?

I don't understand, please explain more:

0) What kind of a monitor is it ?

1) If the monitor is NOT plugged into a working video card,
it should blank out or display some sort of a
"NO SYNC" or "NO SIGNAL" or "UNPLUGGED" warning.

The power light may also flash or show a different color.

2) If the monitor is plugged into a working video card,
it should wake up from the inactive power-saving mode
and display the desktop.

3) If the video card is malfunctioning, or if the windows
video settings are set outside of the monitor's sync limits,
the monitor may turn off or display a warning message,
such as:

No sync, Out of range ... etc.

4) The repair situation (3), reboot windows into
safe mode:

a) Press Hardware Reset

b) After the power-on self-test (POST) and memory check
press and hold the F8 Key

c) Select Safe mode

d) Login to windows at low resolution

e) Right-click on the desktop, chose:

Properties -> Settings -> Set the correct resolution, apply
Click advanced -> monitor -> set the correct refresh rate.

Reboot normally

Hope this helps


PS, some monitors have dual inputs: VGA or DVI
make sure the correct input is selected, depending
on your cable (VGA is a 15 pin "D" connector,
DVI is a larger connector with many more FLAT pins)

Also some video cards have multiple outputs, which are
activated only if a correct monitor is attached BEFORE
