Newer e-machines use the integrated graphics cards, but do not have expansion slots for anything else.
unless you have an expansion slot for a video card add on.

According to this site:
http://www.crucial.com/eu/store/listparts.aspx?model=W3050

you should be able to get an AGP 8X. This is an older card, but would be better than the intergrated one.

good luck and don't forget to vote!!!

I am having a Problem with my video card not letting me run an addition monitor off the vga output on the motherboard. I know it works because I can go to the bios and change it and it works but they want...


When using a PCI or PCI-E graphics card, it will disable your standard VGA output port because the up-dated graphics card and your factory VGA port require different display drivers. Usually, the drivers are conflicting and will make your system unstable and cause it to crash. In short, you can't use both at the same time. I have a Radeon HD 5450 graphics card installed on my PC and it too has disabled my standard VGA port. If you are trying to use more than one monitor, you have to install a graphics card that supports a multiple display output. The graphics card will either have 2 VGA ports, 2 DVI-D ports or 2 HDMI ports or even any combination of the 3. My card, for example, has 1 VGA, 1 DVI-D & 1 HDMI. I can run up to 3 monitors at a time via my graphics card, but I cannot run a 4th monitor from my factory VGA port. My graphics card uses ATI/AMD drivers while my VGA port requires the use of Nvidia drivers.
I hope that you find this useful.

HOW CAN I INSTALL A NVIDIA GEFORCE 7200GS ON A HP 500B DESKTOP PC. IT IS CONFLICTING WITH THE ON BOARD VGA, THIS IS PREVENTING ME FROM USING THE GEFORCE AS A SECONDARY DISPLAY WHICH THE REASON I BOUGHT IT


Hello,

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.

Good Luck

Hi.

You can get a display through > DVI, VGA, HDMI which are on-board. You can also use the nVidia card which may be better.

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)

I have an Acer Monitor X223w - is it capable of hooking up as a douple monitor to one computer?


Any monitor can be used as the second monitor for a computer. However, your computer's graphics card must have two outputs. Some simpler graphics cards, most on-board video chipsets and all laptops *do not have* two outputs. Please check the back of your computer for two VGA outputs, or one VGA and one DVI output (you can use it by connecting a DVI cable to your monitor, or by plugging in a DVI to VGA adapter).
If your graphics card does not have two outputs, or if your computer uses an on-board video chipset, you can buy another graphics card to replace the one you're using.

I have two moniters [ACER]connectedby a VGA SPLITTER HOW DO IGET TWO DIFFERENT PROGRAMS ON SEPERATE SCREENS


if your VGA splitter is a y-shaped cable with one input at one end that plugs into a single normal vga output on your graphics card, you can't do it this way. You need a graphics card with two seperate outputs. VGA splitters can only duplicate one same output across two monitors.

If you don't have a card in there that does this, probably because you're using an old PC with internal graphics, you will need to upgrade by buying a new card. Cards with 2 outputs are pretty cheap these days though, just make sure you get the right one for your motherboard.

VGA upgradable or not?


By VGA I assume you mean the GPU or graphics processor. Unfortunately unless you have a very high end Laptop this would not be upgradeable. Looking at the specs for this Laptop it has a ATI Mobility Radeon X2500 graphics card, not a bad card.
