I need to add a third monitor to my PC

I have an installled nvidia 8500GS in a PCIE slot set up with Dual View and running 2 P&P monitors in extended Desktop. I need to add a 3rd monitor in the form of a projected display for Whiteboard use for content development. I have a spare nvidia tnt2 m64 with a singler VGA adapter socket that would be ideal and a spare PCI slot.
The machine is a MedionPC 2 cpu model MS-7091 x86 Family 15 model 3 stepping Guenintel ~3391Mhz running XP Pro SP3. Phoenix Bios v6 00PG.
My first attempts caused Windows protection so I removed the tnt card and restored my PC.
I see references oj the internet to adding additional cards for more monitors but the nvidia option requires 2PCIE slots and a specific m/board - no can do this. There is a refrence to different card types.
Can you help?

Just but a USB to VGA converter. It is sold by IOGear. It's usb2.0 compatable and it doesn't miss a second when playing games. It can be configured as a third monitor in the Properties setting of windows.

My acer aspire m3641 just shows black screen


Is the computer booting? Fans spin? LED's blink? Sound? Have you tried another monitor? If so, check and reseat ALL cables. The specs indicate you have Integrated NVidia 7050 Graphics Adapter. You may need a aftermarket PCIe x16 Graphics Card to install in a open slot. Verify the cables are good and the monitor works on another computer first.

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.

Two thing to remember on this situation....

First:

On your laptop make sure you switch the dual mode view on your laptop, if you installed your video driver correctly right click on desktop, select there option switching into dual view or extended view, alternative is hold down the FN button or your laptop keyboard and press the Fucntions key (look for the function key with the monitor icon) press and release it while holding the FN key until there is a video on your external VGA monitor.

Second:

If the settings on your laptop is ready for dual or extended view, look for the SOURCE button or your monitor, if not available look for the AUTO button, pressing the Auto button automatically searches the available signal on the VGA, HDMI, or other sources of video on your monitor.

Radeon X1300 - Windows has stopped this device because it has reported problems


As far as I am aware, you can not run an ATI card in the same system as an Nvidia card due to driver conflicts.
