In that case, your pc might have a conflict.. it maybe the version of the display driver.. perform a clean install on the video card driver by doing this.. assuming that your PC's OS is WinXP..

1. On your desktop right click the icon My Computer and click properties..
2. On the System properties click Hardware then click Device Manager..
3. On the device manager window look for the display adapters then click the + sign on the left side..
then it will shows the display adapter you have on your pc..
4. Right click your display adapter then click uninstall.. from there your pc will remove the display adapter you select then it will ask you to reboot..
5. Now were assuming at this time that your pc has been rebooted.. Browse your Display driver and then install..

hope this will help..

Need to connect 3 monitors. Want to use either a Nvidia 290 or ATI Radeon 9250 plus the VGA port. Installing the dual-video card disables the VGA port, cannot get it back. Help!!!


Use your AGP dual-video card for two and using a PCI VGA card for the third. It is best if the same manufacturer video driver is used for both cards, as two different ones could be problematic.

DUAL MONITOR RESOLUTION


At a guess it is the refresh rate the video card is sending to the video out. What is the Max Resolution of the monitors and refresh rate ??
I would think there is a program to be able to setup the driver refresh rate and resolution don't use window drivers get the ones from the makers of the card rather than using the default nivida drivers

Invalid format when conected to laptop


Go into your control panel. Select display. There will be a picture showing 2 screens. Select the 2nd screen, and lower resolution to it's minimum. Apply and test. Slowly increase till you find what your happiest with. Worked for me using a ASUS laptop and LG60'plasma.
