Re: triple monitor set up
That is because the tv is a connector for the tv only.. the other ones are for the computer monitor only.. you can only set up one at a time... If you want the tv one then only get the tv one to work...

Use the DVI port, and the VGA port on the ATI Radeon X300SE graphics card.
If you have two monitors that are LCD, and they both have a DVI connector, use a DVI to VGA adapter for the VGA port on the ATI Radeon X300SE.
[You need a Female DVI to Male VGA adapter, such as this example,
Turn both monitors on. Right-click on an empty spot on the desktop screen. Left-click on Properties, then the Settings tab. Left-click on the monitor icon with the 2 in it. Go down to ->Extend my desktop to this monitor, and left-click in the box to the left of it.
Go down to the right, and left-click on Apply. Now go over to the left, and left-click on OK.
You should now have your desktop screen on both monitors. When you open a window on your Primary monitor, (Monitor icon 1), Left-click on the frame, hold the mouse button down, and drag this screen to the Secondary monitor.
If it doesn't work this way, drag to the other side.
check to make sure monitor is pluged in all the way and check with another monitor. if no good check catalyst control center sharpness setting (if conecting via s-video) if not you will probably have to resolder the connections on the board
The SIS315 is an integrated video card which uses shared RAM in order to work. Most mainboards will automatically turn off the integrated card as soon as an AGP or PCI-e card is installed. Yours may not do this, or maybe the card just needs re-seating as it is not picking it up correctly.
First you need to double check to make sure the new card is firmly in the slot (this is a common problem that is often overlooked) re-seat card and push it firmly and evenly into the slot. Next, on start-up, go into BIOS and make sure all on-board video is disabled. Save and then restart as normal, hopefully it will see your new card and then be looking for the drivers.
It is possible that the BIOS has your on-board video set on auto, which would mean if no other card is present then the PC would automatically go back to on-board video. Which means it can't see your new card, which in turn means it is either not installed properly or it is faulty.
Just out of interest, it may seem a stupid question but you have plugged your monitor cable into your new card and not the on-board socket?
As always much more info is needed for more help Bri
Yes, they both will act independently if you choose to use it that way or they will show the same picture, one is a DVI output and the other is VGA. Use the ATI’s CATALYST software suite provides the ultimate software required to enjoy the full acceleration of your ATI Graphics Accelerator card. You can use it to separate your Primary video from your Secondary video.
what you have the ATI card hooked up can you see the boot screen? If you can see that you might want to try going into safe mode and making sure your graphics settings aren't set beyond the capability of your monitor. If you can't see the boot screen then your card might be dead.
