Nvidia GeForce 7200 GS PCIE - Multi-Display does not work
I connected a LCD screen to the VGA connector and a TV to the S-Video output. I can display to either one, but can't display on both. I've tried setting Clone or Dual mode & it jumps back to single monitor. Does the card not support this, evn though the chipset & drivers think it does?
Re: Nvidia GeForce 7200 GS PCIE - Multi-Display does not...
This card does not allow you to Multi-Display with the VGA port and the S-video port. If you put a DVI to VGA port adaptor (not supplied) on the DVI port, you can Mulit-Display two VGA monitors and (presumably) a VGA (from the DVI port) and S-video monitor.
This is not explained anywhere and the card does not come with a DVI to VGA port adaptor, so I wa only able to work this out after I bought the DVI to VGA port adaptor.

It appears that you have spent real time and money to upgrade your system.
I understand your problem. You want dual output VGA's to have two monitors setup with your system. The computer, HP500 has an onboard VGA out, and your add-on PCI express will not give you a second out VGA.
More than likely, HP / Compaq might not support this configuration with thier CMOS>
Maybe better soloution would be since you already have a VGA and DVI video outputs from your new PCI express board would be to go into BOIS and disable your onboard VGA. The VGA should then revert to the new PCI express board. You then could connect the second monitor to have both on the PCI express board. If you have only VGA (blue type) connectors, you can get a DVI to VGA adapter.
At Newegg online or Tiger Direct should have them if needed for less than &10, plus S&H.
All hope is not lost with just the VGA out on your card!
First, every flat panel monitor I have ever seen has a VGA input, so your GeForce2 card will still work!
VGA is still the top analog signal standard for computers. I am writing this with my on-board NVIDEA GeForce, connected to a Viewsonic VA2226w flat panel monitor using VGA and set at a resolution of 1680X1050!
Almost forgot..... just ignore the "TV Out" on your card.... this is old school and will give you nowhere near the quality you will get from VGA.... it was meant as a "crowd pleaser" to allow people to connect to their old school big screen TV sets.
Get the flat panel display... you will find out that it will work just fine with your VGA connection.
Now, you have TWO video-cards in your computer.
Either remove the "old" video-card,
or enter BIOS SETUP, and configure your computer to indicate which is the "primary" and which is the "secondary" video-adapter.
Or, within BIOS SETUP, just "disable" the "old' one.
Ok, this card has 1 x VGA - 15 pin HD D-Sub (HD-15) ( With adapter ), and 1 s- video slot at the back. Both of these slots are outputs. The vga 15 pin connector is used to connect to your computer screen, where the s - video connector is usually when you want to connect your computer to your television or projector.
Do not hesitate to let me know if i was unclear, or the information was not sufficient, i will try to explain.
have you checked your bios settings? check there if you can disable your internall VGA card and only use your NVIDIA GeForce.
When you start your computer start BIOS to press DEL or F2 or F10 or F12, depends on your computer model and manufacture.
Be sure you changed the source on the tv (i'm guessing you did this), be sure you switch the out-put on your computer to s-video. You can do this in the properties box. If you are running the nvidia video utility, you can set up hot keys to do this. I set up ALT, Z, 3 as my hot key combination. All I do is hook up to my tv, press the three buttons above, at the same time, and the video moves from my pc monitor to the tv.
