Hello - I am trying to hook up my compact 3300t with dual monitors, however it is becoming increasingly difficult for me to find any kind of graphics card that will simply fit in the machine. I know how to install and hook everything up but I cannot find a decent graphics card that supports Vista and 2 20" widescreen monitors that ALSO fits my machine. Any ideas or suggestions of what I need? I even called HP and they sent the wrong card . . . I'm getting a little frustrated to say the least!

if you use windows 7, you should be able to enable dual screens by right clicking on your desktop, and click screen resolution, on the top right, click on detect (assuming you have your video cards enabled and the monitors hooked up). some new dropdown menus should appear for choosing what you need. hope this works for you.
Unfortunately, there is no way to run on board graphics with your dedicated graphics card. One will always be disabled, (would need a hybrid SLI/Crossfire board for that option).
You will need to upgrade to a graphics card that has dual DVI & or VGA outputs built in to be able to hook up 2 monitors. (output type of port depends on what type of connector you have on the monitor cables)
Hello sifian_786, did you try to uninstall old video driver and restart computer and go to nvidia website and download latest driver for you video card and install, restart computer this should solve problem you have, are you trying to run dual LCD monitors ?
What you probably want is a KVM (Keyboard, Video, Mouse) switch that supports dual monitors. It's a simple device that allows you to plug multiple computers into one set of monitors, keyboard, and mouse and switch between controlling them.
I don't know of any that support mixing analog and digital connections for the monitors, but using a VGA to DVI adapter for one of the monitors should solve that problem cheaply.
