Hey there sven155, If i were you , I would get get the video card for the AGP slot. The main reason is the interface is much more efficient, and as a result the dual monitor output would be better in quality than you can get out of a PCI card or any USB connection. Another option is to have your TV Wonder plugged into the computer via AGP only when you need it, therefore you would be switching one for the other (Inconvenient). Ideally video card on AGP, TV card on the PCI.
Alternately you can make the two work, just not simultaneously, and you would have to change settings in the bios to set one or the other as your primary video output.

Trouble with install second video card HD 5450 to emachines t6532


Unclear of your statement. (More like run-on sentence)

Problem heading statement reads,
"trouble with install second video card HD5450 TO eMachines T6532"

Need clarification

The eMachines T6532 Desktop PC uses an MSI MS-7207 motherboard.
Also known as the MSI K8NGM2-L,

http://www.msi.com/product/mb/K8NGM2-FID--IL--L.html

(Click on photo for a better image)


Has one long white PCI Express x16 slot. (Expansion Slot)
Only uses one graphics card at a time, will Not use two.

[Graphics card / Video card. Same/same]

Therefore I surmise you are not referring to adding a Second graphics card, but are referring to;

A) This is the second time you have added a graphics card.

Or,

B) This is the second ATI Radeon HD5450 graphics card.
Had one before. Removed it, and are using a new one.

Or,

C) This is the second time you have added a graphics card.
It is not an ATI Radeon HD5450 like the old one is.

Know this;
1) You can ONLY use the OnBoard (Integrated) graphics,
OR the graphics card.
You CANNOT use both.

When using a graphics card the monitor is plugged into it.
You cannot plug into the onboard graphics of the motherboard, with it installed in the computer.

Said differently;
With the graphics card physically installed in the computer, you cannot just unplug the monitor from the graphics card; and plug it into the OnBoard graphics of the motherboard.

[Also; Computer on, you CANNOT unplug a monitor, and plug it back in.
This = NO ]


2) Driver: Small piece of software that allows the Operating System to communicate with a device.

The device is the graphics card.
The version of Windows operating system was not stated.

Did you install the software from the Installation Disk? (CD/DVD)
Has the drivers on it, and the user interface software.
User interface software for an ATI graphics card, is Catalyst Control Center.

(Just to note; I'm using a Powercolor Radeon HD5450 graphics card, right now.
I'm using dual monitors.

HP 2009M - 20 inch widescreen LCD monitor, and an RCA L26HD31 HDTV as the main monitor. (26 inch HDTV)
They work GREAT! ]

(It is an ATI Radeon HD5450 graphics card just like yours, IF yours has 1GB of graphics memory.

Doesn't matter what graphics card manufacturer, makes that HD5450, it is still an ATI (AMD) design.

Powercolor, VisionTek, Sapphire, Diamond Multimedia, Mickey Mouse, or Goofy. It is still an ATI graphics card )

The ATI Radeon HD5450 graphics card, has to have a MINIMUM power requirement of 350 Watts.
Does your power supply have 350 Watts or more?

If it is the original power supply, the answer is NO.

Back then power supply manufacturers were 'fudging' the true maximum rated wattage.
Why?

Sold more power supplies.

Power supply rated at 250 Watts?
Nope.
More like 60 to 70 percent of that.

Divide 250 by 10.
= 25.
Take that times 6. = 150 Watts (60 percent)
Times 7 = 175 Watts (70 percent)

Would like your opening statements clarified.
Post back in a Comment.

Greetings,

Connect the second monitor to the blue VGA port. Download catalyst control center from the below link and install it. Using catalyst control center, you can configure dual monitor. You may need to check 'force tv detection' setting in catalyst control center.

Comparable cards to the ATI All In Wonder 9700 Pro 128 MB


Hello there. The Radeon 9700 Pro was a high end graphics card in its time. Today the latest Radeon cards are 3870X2, 3870 and 3850 models. The 3850, while mid-high end range, would be a substantial upgrade from the Radeon 9700 Pro.

If you are planning to upgrade your system, make sure you choose the correct type of card (AGP/PCI-E) and that your current system has a good enough power supply to power a new upgrade.

Hope this helps.

How to make use of 2 DVI outputs on Sapphire Radeon X800 GTO2 Graphics card


You need ATIs Catalyst Software to run dual monitors. Just installing the drivers is not enough. There is a bummer part of all this. Before you install the latest driver/Catalyst Crontrol Center, you will have to uninstall your current X800 software through Control Panel. If it fail to uninstall you will need to use ATIs uninstall software called: cat-uninstaller.exe. The first link below.
When you have the new CCC & driver installed you'll need to setup your dual monitors within the Catalyst Control Center. K
Uninstaller: http://searchna.ati.com/promosearch/?site=us-en&la=en&qt=cat-uninstaller&selectsite=ATI&sp_a=sp10039240&sp_p=all&sp-x-1=col&sp_f=ISO-8859-1&sp_q=cat-uninstaller&Search.x=9&Search.y=8
Radeon X800 Driver/CCC software: http://game.amd.com/us-en/drivers_catalyst.aspx?p=xp/radeonx-xp
1 last item. Please make sure your operating system is updated. ATI wants you to have .Net framework 2.0 installed before you install the driver package.
