Parts needed to hookup two monitors

I am attempting to hook two monitors on one computer.
The present graphics card installed is NVIDIA GeForce2 MX/MX 400. I was told to purchase an adapter DVI MALE TO VGA FEMALE ADAPTER which I did but no instructions and there doesn't seem to have a place to plug the adapter in to.
Can you tell me the correct item (s) to purchase from you??

    You can actually have a different display on each one. I finally found the video card I needed just a few moments ago. I have to remove the one I have and insert this one in its place.

    R7000-64-DUAL -- ATI Radeon 7000 64MB DDR AGP Dual VGA

    The reason I am doing this is so I can transfer data from one screen to another without switching screens back and forth.

Need to connect 3 monitors. Want to use either a Nvidia 290 or ATI Radeon 9250 plus the VGA port. Installing the dual-video card disables the VGA port, cannot get it back. Help!!!

Use your AGP dual-video card for two and using a PCI VGA card for the third. It is best if the same manufacturer video driver is used for both cards, as two different ones could be problematic.

Powerspec 8650. what type graphics card fits it? computer keeps shutting down while playing certain games on facebook. extra memory hasn't helped, so i think i need to upgrade my graphics card, just am not...

This card is listed for the model below yours.

Graphics Controller
  • Type AGP 4x - Plug-in card
  • Graphics Processor / Vendor NVIDIA GeForce2 MX 200

  • I would be looking for other causes of shut down such as overheating.
    Check that all fans are working and clean. Ensure all case openings / grilles are also clear.

    If you want to upgrade the vid card you can only get one with AGP 4X
    NOT 8X which most are now.

    Wires off graphics card into mother board?

    The computer won't boot if there is no graphic present. If you did hook it up right and there is a fan on the graphics card, it should be turning.

    My COMPAQ desktop has a 64 MB nVidia GeForce2 MX card. Can I upgrade to any nVidia GeForce 6100 based card? This latter appears to be the minimum to support Windows 7. Thanks for any help.

    it depends on what your computer is.
    but the general rule is any computer can use a upgrade from any card.
    so yes, Your computer can upgrade to whatever.I'm guessing your computer is AGP?.

    Setting up dual monitors with NVIDIA 7300 GS Graphics Adapter

    your computer don't recognize your nvidia graphic card in PCI Express slot.
    you are runing now with computer's integrated graphic card?
    if so then you won't have dualview option. in this case it looks for me like you've installed in the wrong way your graphic card.

    your NV GeForce 7300 GS has 2 video output?
    if yes then you should have the option for 2 monitors on nVIDIA control panel (i have check my nVIDIA GeForce 7600gt and in my case this option is present but is enabled only if i connect the second monitor, so try do so)

    you have installed the latest nVIDIA drivers from the official website?

    check if your video card is corect installed start/run type in " devmgmt.msc ". it will open device manager and under the display adapter tab you should see what video card you use now.

    The grafics on my computer are fuzzy. What's an easy fix.

    There are many fixes that you can make to solve this problem. However the best way to fix this is to get a new video or graphics card. My computer runs on a NVidia Riva 128/128ZX graphic/Video Card and operates with a Gateway EV700 CRT monitor. The NVidia Riva 128/128ZX card is an older one, but is a very strong card, I'd choose any NVidia graphics card. You may also want to check for a new monitor like a flat screen LCD monitor, that may help clear things up a bit.

    Good luck!
