Question about MSI RX1550-TD256E RADEON X1550, (256 MB) Graphic Card

Built-in Display Adapter gets Disabled

Whenever I hook up the MSI ATI RADEON RX1550 TD128EH card I turn on my computer and my old Display Adapter is disabled and disappears from my Device Manager completely. I'm running Windows Vista Home Premium 32-bit on a new Compaq Desktop with a GeForce 6150SE nForce 430 chipset with integrated graphics. I want to use dual monitors by utilizing both the stock adapter and my new graphics card. If I turn off my computer, take out the MIS graphics card, restart, everything goes back to normal and works completely fine. It probably wan't smart but I plugged in the graphics card while it was on to see if it made any difference it didn't and the card still works. I have proper drivers for both Adapters and they both work independently from eachother just the built-in one disappears when I plug the new one in. Searching for new hardware, re-installing drivers, none of that helps.

Re: Built-in Display Adapter gets Disabled

You should be running the same make video card, because the same driver runs both of them.
Here is Microsofts take on this subject.

My Radeon card isn't recognizing the monitor and Catalyst won't read its full resolution (1024 x 768).

Hello there
The HD 2400 is a pretty old card and I doubt it will give brilliant graphics.or will it run DX11
1)Have you disabled the 'on-board' graphics in your BIOS settings ? Your computer will not recognise it if the old on board chip is enabled.
2) Have you tried connecting the 2400 using the 15 pin video connector ?
3) You say it isnt 'recognising' the hd2400 and yet you are saying the monitor is working at 640 !!!! Which is it. Does the monitor work on the old onboard output or the HD2400 ?
4) The version of catalyst depends on your operating system and whether 32 or 64 bit.
Use the right one via here
and uninstall the old one first..
5) If the monitor does not work at all on the HD2400 try the card in a different PCI slot.
6) ALWAYS check after you start the PC that in 'Device Manager' that the display adapter (hd2400) is recognised.
7) run ' DXDIAG ' to see how good the monitor is. (type in dxdiag the start orb search box)

Is there windows 7 64 bit drivers for my msi video card modle # RX1550-TD256E

Just google " rx1550-td256e drivers"
you can find your drivers that way. i have NVIDIA which has a feature to scan my hardware for the specific device and show me which driver i need (of course i have a software that keeps those drivers up-to-date). i dont know if your video card manufacturer provides this kind of service

I have a Dell Vostro 400 and two video cards. Only one card will work and it is an Nvidia GeForce FX 5200.The other one is an ATI Radeon HD 2400 PRO. These are the specs from the two graphics cards:...

you cant join two different platform vga cards. simply because they have their own platform and have separate drivers, so they conflict each other thus causing one of them shut off or disable..

Any idea?

Do you have installed the ATI CATALYST CONTROL CENTER? Thats ATI utility that controls the card, it usually places a red ATI icon besides the clock in windows. Double clicking the icon you enter the catalyst control center, use it in advanced mode and go to the DISPLAY OPTIONS menu on the left column. In there you'll find a FORCE TV DETECT option you can enable. Then in DISPLAYS MANAGER menu you can configure what you want to do with your displays with numerous option that adapt to any arrangement.

As always keep your drivers up to date... If your card isn't a true ATI, just a radeon built by someone else, then you might need to download the drivers from that manufacturer and use their utility. Or maybe you can force install the original ATI drivers for your card model.
