Sounds like you have the first card integrated on the MB. Sometimes when you install another card, the integrated card disables itself. You may go to Control Panel>Display Options to configure the behavior of your display cards. Once there you can set the main and secondary display. (I assumed Windows XP because you didn't tell).

My monitor won't come out of sleep mode


when the computer enter the sleep mode, it is possible that the computer remove the check mark from this output activation.

When you have multiple ouptut like a internal LCD and output on a monitor, when going into sleep then waked up, laptop reactivate the internal LCD without reactivated the secondary monitor.

you could need to go in desktop property and reactivate the secondary monitor with the check mark listed : Activate.

If you only have one monitor but still a dual output card or two separate video card same thing can happend. try to connect the monitor on the second VGA or HDMI output and see if the video goes there.

then reactivate your secondary output and make it principal.

Does also happend when your computer is connected to a UPS power and your monitor is directly on the sector. (laptop issu also)

if a brief power outage arrive then the monitor shut down (no power) and the computer continu, as there is no monitor on the output any more Windows will automatically deactivate this monitor. when power goes back, this output is no longuer providing video. I suggest putting the monitor on a UPS as well.

Dual monitor


It appears you have two outputs for video so yes, you should be able to export the video signal for dual monitor use.

Hello ghinea18, sorry you can't do that because this will cause hardware conflict, that's why motherboard bios automatically disable integrated graphics if you install video card using pci express x16 slot - Nvidia GeForce 7300SE. do you know if your video card has dual vga or dual dvi connection?

You can try dual display, im not sure if this card supports dual monitors because nvidia online specs does not show full specs on 7300se series. \

Good Luck!

Dual monitors


You'll need a dual-monitor video card in your computer. The GVLM1928 is basically two monitors on a shared stand. Each side of the monitor has a separate video connection.

Dual display


On some bios's, you can turn on both your onboard video card and keep that enabled while using the other monitor. However i reccomond you buy a video card that supports a dual monitor system without need for tweaking. Otherwise the simple answer for your issue is no and will require much more work than a conventional dual monitor system.
