Video cards We are a church and we purchased a Dell computer built to run dual monitors for our projectors in the sancturary about 3 years ago.Out of the box we loaded our software and it worked perfectly. The desktop monitor shows the preview panel and the second vga goes to the projector and shows a different picture. We just opened a new location and again bought a Dell and told them we needed the ablility to run 2 independent monitors( One desktop, the other projector). When the computer got here we loaded the software up and was unable to get both the projector and desktop monitor to run in dualview. They sent us a new nividia ge force 7600 gs video card and we have installed it and still not able to view one thing on desktop and something else on projector. Does anyone know if this card will do what we need it too or do we need a different card? Could anyone help me with this issue? Thanks, Paul302-218-8833

Your card certainly will support two monitors. It has two connectors and they are accessed by the nVidia software, available from the manufacturer's website. The link to find the latest version is below. You need to select '7 Series' in the second pull-down menu, and in the third you'll have to select your operating system. The software is a bit confusing, but I have the same video card in my computer, so if you need further help, please post your question / results by reply to this conversation.

You should have 2 video ports on the 8400 GS card. One is the standard 15 pin VGA port and the other is the DVI port. You should be able to use these ports on the card to connect dual monitors. If you use the video port integrated on the motherboard you will bypass the 8400 GS card. Here's a link from Microsoft about running dual displays:

The other issue is whether your monitors are DVI compatible.

Will a dell dimension 2100 support dual monitors


Yes it will but that will also depend on your graphics card to a degree.
To do it properly you need to install a new graphics card and disable the on-board graphics card from the bios.

Your new card should support std VGA as well as DVI

DVI is also capable of being hooked up to many large screen tvs

How to run monitor and projector same time?


You would have to have a dual head video card (two monitor connections) or have two regular video cards, or use a VGA splitter. If you do it through a video card, once you have them installed, go into the settings tab on the display properties and it will show multiple monitors, simply click on the second one and check the box that says "extend my desktop..."
Good Luck!

Dell 410XPs + Dell 3007WFP monitor issues


Vinod,
That's quite strange as during system startup you should see the Dell POST logo as at that point the card is only running at VGA, and the monitor will support display at this resolution. If you connect with a normal single DVI cable the monitor should display at 1280x800 also.
Have you tried this? Also have you had this monitor working on another computer at all? What happens if you power up the 3007 with no video cable connected? It should cycle through the pixel test screens. If you are not getting that, and you are not getting the pre POST logo during powerup i suspect that it is a screen failure.
