Question about Gateway Computers & Internet
I have a Gateway 500s. I bought it in October of 2002. I does what I need it to do. I have a Gateway 20" monitor, thats about 2 years old. My daughter has a Samsung 731B 17" monitor she gave me. I was wanting to conect both to computer. I'm guessing I will need a duel video driver. Is it possible with an older machine? If so what would I need to do it?
If your Video card has two VGA connectors on it, then your all set you just need to plug in the new monitor and your good to go.
If you have one VGA connector on your video card and one on *********** board or a seperate card then you may or may not need a new driver.
If the second video connector has a GPU made by the same manufacturer as your primary Video card then your existing driver will likely work. (Example; If their both Nvidia or their both ATI etc..)
Note of Warning: Mixing video processors is not wise. ATI and Nvidia Drvers don't play nice with each other
