Low brightness on second monitor using Radeon X1300 video adapter

I have just connected another monitor to my computer using the analog port on my Radeon X1300 Video adapter. I restarted the computer, but it appears to be unable to recognize the second monitor. I have tried to "ADD HARDWARE" with my Control Panel, but it will not recognize the second video Have just installed a secondary monitor to my ATI RADEON X1300 Pro, both monitors are from same manufacturer (Dell) but secondary monitor is an older 4:3 version. It shows image on start up but then goes dark or to sleep - you can still see the faint outline of the screen image but can't seem to find a way to keep display intensity up - any ideas? Many thanks in advance!

    I do have Catalyst and have been through its setting options (several times to great frustration) with no discernible difference. Whenever I change any of the settings the 2nd screens image flashes up to the desired brightness but immediately goes dark again - to me it looks like it is a problem with the driver ie it not being powerful or clever enough to process sufficient information to both screens but I can't get that to make sense as as you say, it should be more than capable of supporting multiple displays... any ideas? :/

    I have the same issue but downloading the latest Catalyst driver did not correct the problem. Did anything solve your issue?

According to the X1300 specifications here it does support multiple displays. The option to configure the display is found in the Catalyst application. Do you have the latest version of that? You can get it from their website.

You need to connect both monitors to a computer. Monitors do not daisy-chain (in general). The exception are some SCART-enabled monitors.

What is your source (desktop)? What is the make/model of your new monitor? Please add a comment with the video outputs/inputs for your source and second monitor.

Many newer desktops have two or three outputs. (Some video cards have display port outputs which with active adapters can support 2 monitors each.)

If your computer has two or more outputs and your new monitor has an input compatible with the extra output, get the appropriate DVI, DVI-HDMI or HDMI cable for your new monitor. See the next section if both monitors have VGA input.

If you have a desktop with only one video output, you may be able add a video card to support two monitors. (Depending on your computer, you may need to upgrade the power supply to support a video card.) Then get the appropriate adapter or cables to add the second monitor. (Note: if both of your monitors have only VGA inputs, check the specs for video cards carefully. Not all modern cards support analog outputs on their DVI, HDMI or Display Port connections. These digital outputs would require a digital to analog converter to give the VGA out.) However, if one of your monitors will accept DVI digital signals and the other VGA, add a card with one of each of these connections and a DVI cable to match. (This is an if needed extra; many monitors still ship with only a VGA cable.)

Then turn off your computer, open it and add the video card. Install the drivers with only one monitor attached. Then power down the computer and connect the second monitor. Turn on both monitors before turning on the computer again. Most of the time, the second monitor should be recognized (by Windows) and the appropriate refresh rate and resolution chosen. If not, you may need to enter the Display settings to set the monitor up.

I have seen some computers/video cards where only one output is initially enabled. You may have to go into the device settings to enable it. (Laptops often need their external video ports enabled in the BIOS.) Bad video ports/cards/cables do happen so RMA if needed.

The USB video adapter, http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16812225007 , can be added to a desktop to give a second VGA output but it isn't the best solution. USB bandwidth limits are significantly lower than those for a PCIe x16 slot or an old AGP slot.

I hope this helps. Please add more information about your system if you want more assistance with this problem.

(who has done dual monitors with older and newer computers. My old Pentium 4 with a Radeon x1350 video card was fine for driving a VGA monitor and an HDMI monitor (using a DVI to HDMI cable). My second generation i5 and P8Z68 motherboard system is also fine using the on-CPU video graphics for those same monitors. A video card would improve gaming but isn't required.)

We have Dell OptiplexGX745 smallform factor desktop computers that we need to run two monitors.


If your Dell Optiplex GX745 came with the ATI Radeon X1300 graphics card, that has One - DVI graphics port, and One - VGA graphics port, it's no problem.

This link shows an ATI Radeon X1300, and the two above mentioned graphics ports,

http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/SearchTools/item-details.asp?EdpNo=5550932&CatId=28

(Please scroll down to the larger photos for more detail.
The Radeon X1300 graphics card in your computer, is a Low Profile graphics card. It will not look exactly like the one shown.

Low Profile means shorter in height. Your graphics card is shorter in height, in order to fit in your SFF computer case. {Small Form Factor}

The longer white connector shown on the left side of the view, is a DVI port. (Technically it's a Dual DVI port)

The shorter blue connector shown on the right side of the view, is the VGA port.

1) If one of your monitors has a DVI connector plug, simply plug it into the DVI port.
If the other monitor also has a DVI connector plug, you will need an adapter to plug it into the VGA port.

2) If both of your monitors have a VGA connector plug, one will plug into the VGA port on the graphics card.
The other will need an adapter to plug into the DVI port, on the graphics card.

This link shows an adapter for connecting a monitor with a DVI connector, to the VGA port on a graphics card,

http://www.directron.com/dviadapter.html

The adapter to connect a monitor with a VGA connector, to a DVI port on the graphics card is opposite of this.
[ I have found them at Radio Shack.
This = Expensive! $14.99
Not advertising for Radio Shack, or the above website in the link]

NOTE*
Use care when selecting the adapter you need.

A monitor with a VGA cable connector has the Male pins.
Your adapter must have the VGA Female sockets.
The DVI side of the adapter must have the Male pins.
It goes into the Female socket holes on the graphics card.

Same with a monitor that has a DVI cable connector.
The adapter must have Female DVI socket holes.
The other side will have Male VGA pins.

If your ATI Radeon X1300 only has One - graphics port, I Do Not advise using a splitter.
This is an adapter cable that has a connector on one end, and splits into two cables.

The graphics quality will be poor.

If you have No graphics card the situation is worse. This is Onboard, or Integrated Graphics.
(OnBoard. On the motherboard)

Using a splitter cable will result in very poor graphics.

How to tell if your Optiplex GX745 only has Integrated Graphics?
Look at the back of the computer. Come down from the audio ports. (Green and Blue)

Look under the USB ports.
The Blue VGA port is the Integrated Graphics port.

If you have an ATI Radeon X1300 graphics card, you will see a blue VGA port in an adjacent slot, also.

(Your computer can have Integrated Graphics, and a graphics card.
You CANNOT use the Integrated Graphics port, and a graphics port on a graphics card, At The Same Time!
It will Not work)

Once the two monitors are attached.

1) Turn both monitors on.
2) Turn the computer on, let Windows load

3) After Windows has loaded, Right-click on any empty area of the desktop screen.

4) Go to the bottom of the drop down menu, and Left-click on Properties

5) There are tabs across the top. Left-click on the
Settings tab.

6) You will see two rectangular icons. These icons represent monitors.

The one on the left side with the white border around it, is your Primary monitor. The main monitor you have always had.

The grayed out icon on the right side represents a Secondary monitor. This is for the second monitor you plugged in.

Note how the two monitor icons are sitting.
Primary on the left, Secondary on the right.
This is how your monitors should be sitting.

If it is Not, left-click on the Secondary monitor icon. Hold the left mouse button down, and drag it over to the left.

Now scroll down this window with your eyes.
Under the resolution settings you will see -

Extend my Windows desktop onto this monitor

There is a square box to the left of it.

Left-click in the square box. Go below to the right, and left-click on Apply.
Now go to the left, and click on OK.

Your monitors will now both be showing your desktop screen.

[Note* When doing this procedure, you have clicked on the Secondary monitor icon. Clicking on the icon activates it]

When you open the internet, or have a program going.
Go to the right side of the screen to the blue border,
of the Primary monitor.

When the mouse cursor turns into a double-headed arrow, hold the left mouse button down, and drag the screen to the right.

(You will note that the mouse cursor changes quite easily. It has to be double-headed in order for this to work)

If this direction does not work, go to the left side of the screen, drag to the left.

(You have to drag in the direction your monitors are actually sitting, in relation to each other)

Problem installing ATI Radeon X1300 256mb in Dell Optiplex GX260


Hi edward,
I'm looking at the specs of your dell and of the video adapter.
It appears the Power Supply in your dell may to under powered for the video card.
According to dell's website the largest psu that ships with that unit is 250 watts while the radeon x1300 needs a minimum of 250 watts to run and assuming you have the 250 watt version you need to take into consideration that the psu is also powering your CPU, memory,fans,hard drive/s and other components on in your system so 250watts just isn't enough.
You may want to contact dell and see if there is a larger psu that you can purchase. I would recommend one at least in the 400 watt range.
I hope you get it straightened out I certainly know how frustrating it can be to not be able to use new hardware.
Let me know how it works out.

White screen with radeon x1300 pro agp 256m


Hi porkchop_66_ , if you uninstalled factory graphics drivers, chances are you uninstalled the motherboards built in graphics card driver. Since you haven't provided your motherboard model & manufactures name I can't be 100% your weren't using an onboard graphics card. So I'll cover both.
If you added the X1300 AGP card, (Not replacing an older AGP card), you'll need to enter the motherboards bios menu & set the bios to boot to the AGP slot. If you replaced an older AGP card, its possible you have the monitor plugged into the wrong VGA out-put on the Radeon. There are two ports. One DVI & one VGA. Try each & check for display. Lastly, the Radeon X1300 card you have
runs in an AGP port that supports 1.5volts. Check your, motherboard manual. Check if your motherboard supports AGP cards of 1.5v.
If all this does not make sense, post back with your motherboards model number & the manufacture name & I'll be able to help further. Post here.


Good luck porkchop_66_!
Thank you for using fixya.

HIS Radeon X1300 Misdetected


do the BIOS update !

in the advanced BIOS features there should be a onboard GPU tab, put it on disabled or on initiate AGP/PCI first (depends on the BIOS), so to be sure that the onboard card is disabled !

Connect the display to the HIS ...video card , and at least on bootup there should be info displayed on the screen . If not than : - try to reinsert the video card (bad connection ) (also check if its a card that needs external power source ( i doubt it))
- check if the video card is compatible with the motherboard (should be in the user manual, or on the producers site ... )
- check on another comp. if the card is good ....

hope it helps u ... if not, give more details ....
