Question about ATI RADEON X1650 Pro, (512 MB) PCI Express Graphic Card

Duel Monitor Problem

Okay so I recently wanted to "upgrade" my home computer experience by attaching two monitors to my one cpu.
Awesome right?
No, not really.
Ive hooked everything up perfectly and im unable to get the two monitors "option".
Ive heard that you need two computer "screens" in the display settings area of the control panel to be able to operate two monitors, but im unable to get even that.
When my computer boots up, both monitors work. But when the "welcome" screen appears, one monitor goes blank or black.
Im running Windows XP Home edition, a Radeon X1600 Pro vid card, and two monitors that are exactly the same.
Please help!

    Thats awesome. Thank you. Although the problem remains that I dont think the thing is reading the monitors.
    It doesnt show the two monitors or the options in that "how to" link that you posted under the catalyst control center.
    It only has the options to stretch it horizontally, vertically, or to clone main to tv.

    I boot up, and the boot screen shows on both screens.
    That means in general, that my graphics card can handle TWO screens.
    But, when the welcome screen shows, one screen goes black.
    Does the back of my graphics card (where you hook everything into.. plug, screw, etc), have to have the two white hookups?
    Right now it only has one white and then the regular blue hookup.

First thing first ensure that you have the latest ATI radeon X1600 pro driver and software installed else you won't be able to get the desired options for dual display under settings coz it will be working with generic drivers.

First, make sure all the cables are connected properly in the right ports, also the power supply. It could be the monitor itself that is not working. Try a different monitor on your CPU and see if it will work. Likewise, try your monitor on a different CPU.

Need new vid card


The Compaq s3200nx comes with integrated video; Via KM266 graphics. It has:
Available slotsTwo PCI
AGP4x 1.5v
AGP is for Video but nothing else and it must be 4v. PCI is for all types of cards including Video.

You can get a PCI Video card with more memory on it than your current video.
You must verify your monitor connection. Is it VGA? or DVI? Make sure the card has the right type of connection.

I installed the ATI x1650 but the monitor is blank when I turn on


Yes the card does support the screen. If you have blank screen right from turn on, chack that you have not plugged the monitor into the onboard graphics port instead of your Radeon. If you have plugged it into the right port then you have hardware problems. Could be any of the following:
1. Monitior
2. Video Card
3. System memory
4. Motherboard
5. Powersupply
6. CPU

Try a different monitor and get back to me if you want troubleshooting tips.
Cheers

Try connecting an external monitor to the laptop. After your computer is attached to an external monitor, press the <Fn> key and the <F8> (CRT, LCD) key to switch the video image to the display. If the external monitor works, the computer display or video controller may be defective.

GIGABYTE X1300PRO GRAPHIC CARD


On many portable computers and some desktop computers (those with two video ports on one video card), you can expand your display to a second monitor by using Dualview. Dualview is very similar to the multiple monitor feature, with the exception that you cannot select the primary display. On a portable computer, the primary monitor is always the LCD display screen. On a desktop computer, it is the monitor attached to the first video out port.
Once you attach the second monitor and turn on your computer, use Display in Control Panel to configure your settings, just as you do with multiple monitors. Dualview can be used with docked or undocked portable computers

This procedure applies when two or more monitors are connected to one computer.
  1. Open Display in Control Panel.
  2. On the Settings tab, click Identify to display a large number on each of your monitors, showing which monitor corresponds with each icon.
  3. Click the monitor icons and drag them to positions that represent how you want to move items from one monitor to another, and then click OK or Apply to view changes.
Notes
  • To open Display, click Start, click Control Panel, and then double-click Display.
  • The icon positions determine how you move items from one monitor to another. For example, if you are using two monitors and you want to move items from one monitor to the other by dragging left and right, place the icons side by side. To move items between monitors by dragging up and down, place the icons one above the other. The icon positions do not have to correspond to the physical positions of the monitors. You can place the icons one above the other even though your monitors are side by side
