Dual Monitor I want to setup a Dual Monitor Setup. I have one ASRock KMVM3 mother board which has 1 AGP Slot and ASUS V3800M/32M Graphics & Video Accelator Card. When I add this card, system works fine but OnBoard AGP becomes invisible. What setting I should use so that I can setup a Dual Monitor System?

    Thanks dileep007 for your commets,

    It is still not happening here. After I connect AGP Card on the slot and a monitor, then Switched on the system, It is detecetd and installed the drivers properly and display was comming properly in new Monitor. But I did not find any option Like Identify in Display Property. Next I restarted the system and went to Setup and Made OnBoardAGP as primary display. Then the system started with display in original monitor. I checked Device Manager, The V3800 AGP is not detected now, here is the screen shot.




    Device Manager


    I checked Display Properties (above screen shot) It shows 2 monitors but both are same. I can do whatever options you said, other monitor remains blank.

    What can be the problem? ..... How to solve it

You don't use the onboard + the AGP graphics card. You use the dual monitor capability of your new card. Plug both monitors into your AGP card, then you'll be able to follow those other instructions to extend your desktop on to the second display.
That graphics card has a VGA port and a DVI port - so one of your displays will need to use a DVI cable (or you might need to get a VGA to DVI adaptor)

To arrange multiple monitors
This procedure applies when two or more monitors are connected to one computer.

  1. Open Dual Monitor - shortcutcold.gifDisplay in Control Panel.
  2. On the Settings tab, click Identify to display a large number on each of your monitors, showing which monitor corresponds with each icon.
  3. Click the monitor icons and drag them to positions that represent how you want to move items from one monitor to another, and then click OK or Apply to view changes.
note.gif Notes
  • To open Display, click Start, click Control Panel, and then double-click Display.
  • The icon positions determine how you move items from one monitor to another. For example, if you are using two monitors and you want to move items from one monitor to the other by dragging left and right, place the icons side by side. To move items between monitors by dragging up and down, place the icons one above the other. The icon positions do not have to correspond to the physical positions of the monitors. You can place the icons one above the other even though your monitors are side by side.

    number of colors on multiple monitors


    This procedure applies when two or more monitors are connected to one
    computer.


    1. Open Display in Control Panel.

    2. On the Settings tab, click the monitor icon that
      represents the monitor that you want to adjust.

    3. In the Color quality list, click a color setting, and then click
      OK or Apply to view changes.

    Notes


    • To open Display, click Start, click Control Panel, and
      then double-click Display.


    • If you click the icon for a secondary monitor, the Extend my
      Windows desktop onto this monitor

      settings for that monitor.

    • Click Medium to display over 65,000 colors, High to display
      over 16 million colors, or Highest to display over 4 billion colors.
      Choosing more colors provides better color quality on your screen.

    • Settings that display a larger number of colors normally require more
      computer memory and might affect performance on older computers.

    • Your monitor
      and video adapter determine the
      maximum number of colors that can appear on your screen. You can specify the
      color settings for each installed monitor.

    3. Click the monitor icons and drag them to positions that represent how

      Apply.

    4. Drag an item on your desktop across your screen until

    To install
    additional monitors



    1. Turn off your computer.

    2. Insert your additional Peripheral Component Interconnect (PCI) or
      Accelerated Graphics Port (AGP) video adapter into an available
      slot.

    3. Plug your additional monitor into the card.

    4. Turn on your computer. Windows will detect the new video
      adapter and install the appropriate drivers.

    5. Open Display in Control Panel.

    6. On the Settings tab, click the monitor icon that
      represents the monitor you want to use in addition to your primary monitor.

    7. Select the Extend my Windows desktop onto this monitor check box,
      and then click Apply or OK.
      If the check box is not displayed on your computer, it may be because your
      video adapter does not support multiple monitors. See Notes for
      information about compatible hardware.

    Notes


    • To open Display, click Start, click Control Panel, and
      then double-click Display.


    • Selecting the Extend my Windows desktop onto this monitor check box
      allows you to drag items across your screen onto alternate monitors.
      Or, you can resize a window to stretch it across more than one monitor.


    • To use the multiple monitor support feature, you need a PCI or AGP video
      adapter for each monitor. If you have an onboard video adapter (one that is
      not a plug-in card but is part of the motherboard) that you want to
      use as part of a multiple-monitor configuration, it must be set as VGA.
      To find hardware that is supported by Windows operating systems, visit
      the Windows Catalog on the Microsoft Web
      site.


    • If your computer doesn't recognize your second monitor, click Display Troubleshooter for
      more information.

    • The operating system always needs a VGA device. The computer's BIOS or EFI
      detects the VGA device based on slot order, unless the BIOS or EFI offers an
      option for choosing which device is to be treated as the VGA device.

    • The VGA device cannot be stopped, which is an important consideration for
      docking units.

    • The monitor
      that is designated as the primary monitor will display the logon dialog box when you start
      your computer. In addition, most programs will display windows on the primary
      monitor when you
      initially open them.

    • If you are using Dualview, skip steps 2 and 3 above. Just plug your second
      monitor into the
      video out port on your portable computer, or into the second video out port on
      your desktop computer. When you turn on your computer, it should recognize the
      second monitor.
      Follow steps 5 through 7 to extend your display to the second monitor. If the second
      monitor is not
      shown on the Settings tab, you might need to update your display driver.

Is there always a free slot for a video card on motherboards that have integrated video cards


Most motherboards have expansion slots, you need to identify the type of expansion slots that are installed eg. PCI. AGP etc.
If your motherboard has an AGP slot (this slot is for graphics card) then purchase an AGP graphics card.
You may need to disable the on-board graphics card in the BIOS setup.

    No display on monitor & if ram open and restart on then no sound on buzzer.


    *Please Read full post before trying Also download the Online manual for this motherboard it takes only a minute and probably will answer a lot of questions you might have regarding *********** Board.*

    Um... i am assuming your able to still see the display on the monitor if you plug your monitor into the on board video card. I am also assuming that the problem your talking about accursed when you plug in a video card into *********** board and then plug your monitor into that video card. I am also assuming your graphics card that you want to plug into *********** board is a AGP slot card.

    If both of these conditions apply to you then try this.

    Start your computer with your on board graphics card and unplug any other graphics card form *********** board.
    Next go into your bios, and follow these instructions:

    Go to "Advanced", "Chipset", And then "AGP configuration".

    Next change your "Select AGP 3.0 Data Ratio" to "4X".

    Next change your "Graphics Adapter Priority" to "AGP/Int-VGA"
    *make sure its set to" AGP/Int-VGA" or your display will not work and you will need to reset your bios via the mother boards jumper cables.*

    After that hit esc and go to "Exit" select "Exit

    Which latest Graphic card can be supported by my Asrock P4i45GV?


    Hi

    Any video card that supports AGP x8 Should work on this motherboard.

    For example Nvidia 7800 GS AGP or 7600 GS AGP should work fine.

    But a better investment would be to upgrade the motherboard to a PCI-E supporting board and possibly AMD Dual or Triple / quad core processor the ram is very cheap for DDR2 these days.

    Upgrade would be best in long run.

    Graphics card problem


    Hi rovin,
    So you bought an XFX GeForce 256MB video card. You're board has 1 free AGP 8x video slot & 3 PCI (White opened slots).
    You mention there is not slot for the new card. (What type of video card did you buy)? PCI-E, AGP or PCI?
    The only slot you're board does not have is a PCI-Express.
    Look in you're manual on page 1-7 for the location of the AGP video card slot.
    94565e6.jpg If you bought the wrong card, exchange it for an AGP 8x or PCI.
    The ASUS P5PE-VM uses a integrated Intel® 865G chipset with integrated Intel® Extreme Graphics 2 Technology, which uses you're system memory to function.
    If you need a manual you can download it from Asus. Click on the link to open to the P5PE-VM download site.
    http://support.asus.com/download/download.aspx?modelname=P5PE-VM&SLanguage=en-us
