Want to use dual monitors with sapphire x1550

I want to use dual monitors in WinXP. Installed the Sapphire x1550 card but it has disabled the existing integrated video adapter on the motherboard so that it is not recognised in Setup.
As a result, I cannot set up the computer in dual view mode.
Is there a way to force the computer to recognise both video adapters?

    Software for the card indicates it does support dual monitor mode. I will attempt to remove and reinstall it

No. if the integrated gfx are automatically disabled when you insert an add-on vidoe card,. then the internal gfx does not support dual monitor mode.

What would be the better video card between the two


Sapphire 9250
http://www1.sapphiretech.com/en/products/graphics_specifications.php?gpid=59

ATI Radeon HD 3600 series
http://ati.amd.com/products/mobilityradeonhd3600/specs.html

ATI Radeon... much faster, and supports DirectX 10.1, rather than the Sapphires support of 8.1

Call of Duty 4 on High Graphics.. yes. The ATI Radeon beats it easily. :)

Need help with new AGP video card for T3092 E-machines desktop


You should go in to your start-up bios and ensure the on-board video is disabled. The computer will auto-detect the video card but if the on-board video is enabled then it will cause a conflict. Let me know what happens. Good luck.

PC will POST, but no monitor display


Maybe you forgot to connect extra power to the graphics card? On that card I believe it is a PEG connector, some older cards used standard molex but this is a rather new card.

Also, some mainboards have extra power connectors for the pci bus to provide extra stability (mostly for SLI/Crossfire configs). Never hurts to check if this is the case and then plug in some more juice even if you are not using dual gpu's.

Good kuck and please come back with more questions if it didn't help-

Unable to get my new graphics card to work


Just moments ago, I downloaded the latest (v9.4) Vista 64-bit driver for my LX 6200 for my HD 4650 512MB video card. It seems to have fixed a cursor flickering problem, but didn't help with the screen saver problem. My card is made by Sapphire and I downloaded the driver from there site at: http://www1.sapphiretech.com/us/support/drivers.php

Disabling the built in HD3200 is key to successfully installing the Catalyst software.

System does not see new video card


Confirm the card works in another system to eliminate it as a suspect. Try a beefier power supply in the machine (sometimes these 300 to 350 watt supplies just cant hang when an addon card is installed). Check the BIOS settings and make sure that the PCI Express slot resources are active for the card. If the card uses a power connector, make sure it is connected. Keep us posted.

Can a R9550 Sapphire graphics card fit to optiplex 170L


It is possible you can etheir find an agp of the appropriate generation for your video card and attempt to solder it into the board. Even then you will need to re-program the bios to recognize it. Would be very difficult to do though as you would need to know how to code the eprom in machine language.

Graphics Card Card


you should be fine with the PSU that you have currently got but i would recommend upgrading it to something above 400W.

there is a graphics card i would recommend which is a Sapphire ATi Radeon HD 2600 PRO. you can look it up here.

it will support dual monitor at 1080p which uses two DVI.
