Cant utilize extended monitor function in XP w/ onboard chipset as other VGA out
DUE TO ati RADEON 7500 CARD + ON BOARD GFX CHIPSET, dell gx260 CANNOT USE EXTENDED MONITOR SETTING. Is there a fix? In BIOS, like an override that keeps both video outs alive, not the on-board disabled when the ATI card is installed...

Re: Cant utilize extended monitor function in XP w/...
You cannot use both the onboard video and a separate card at the same time. Are you trying to use multiple monitors? Your video card must support that if you are, and the Radeon 7500 does not mention that it does. If it does, the ATI Catalyst drivers will have the option.

The two cards that were tested on this from Dell are
ATI 64MB Radeon VE 7500
ATI 32MB Radeon The maximum card you can connect to the system any PCI video card not more than 128 MB. As the motherboard and the power supply would not support it
You can try reinstalling the firmware for the video card, but if that doesn't work your video card is probably dead and you'll need a new video card. The firmware is what controls the video card, so if the computer shut off while the firmware was in the process of being rewritten, there's a good chance some of the code needed to run the card got erased or scrambled.
Yes if it has the port for the graphics card it will work with the onboard graphics card just make sure then that your video output is plugged into the ATI radeon and not the onboard..or it will not work correctly. if you have anymore questions just let me know and i will answer them asap.
Your Motherboard has an onboard video chipset made by Nvidia. Nvidia and ATI have a history of not playing nice with each other.
I have 2 possible solutions for you.
1.) Remove the Radeon card and use the Nvidia onboard card (Essentially a Geforce 6100)
2.) Enter the bios (Usually done by hitting <Delete> or <F12> while the computer is booting up) Your Motherboards manual can tell you for certain. Then find the options for onboard video and disable it.
Then boot up the PC, When it say starting Windows press <F8> to bring up the windows boot menu. Select "Start in Safe mode" Once this loads up open the device manager, look under "Display adapters" find the entry for the Nvidia adapter, right click on it and select either "Uninstall" or "Disable this device"
Which you choose depends on your personal preference Whether you like Nvidia or ATI boards better.
If it makes your decision easier a Geforce 6100 is roughly equivalent to a Radeon 8500 in performance.
I tried numerous solutions for this issue and none of them worked except this one. I tested it with Vista Ultimate and don’t know if other Vista versions have the same drivers but here’s what worked for me:
1.Right click ‘Computer’ then left click ‘Properties’ to open up System window. 2.Click ‘Device Manager’ 3.Click ‘+’ on ‘Display Adapters’ and you should see the drivers for your video. Right click and select ‘Update Driver Software...’ 4.Select ‘Browse my computer for driver software’ and click ‘next’. 5.Click ‘Let me pick from a list of device drivers on my computer’ 6.Untick ‘Show compatible hardware’ 7.Select ‘Intel Corporation’ then select ‘Intel 82865G’. Click next.
This will install the drivers. No they are not the same drivers for the hardware but they work a treat!
The ATI website may or may not have that particular driver on it (I can't remember). However, I would first try the manufacturer's website (i.e. Dell, Gateway, HP). If neither of those have the driver you are looking for, try this: http://www.softwarepatch.com/utilities/mobility-radeon.html
