Doesn't work that way Max.
You can use EITHER the OnBoard Graphics,
the Add-On Card graphics. (Graphics card)
BIOS will NOT support both at the same time.
If you wish to use dual monitors, get an AGP card that has more than one graphics port on it.
For example, although I'm using a graphics card based on the PCI Express technology, and not AGP technology; my card has a VGA port, DVI port, and HDMI port.
1) VGA Connector; http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/VGA_Connectorhttp://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Male_VGA_connector.jpg
2) DVI; http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Digital_Visual_Interfacehttp://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Dvi-cable.jpghttp://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Digital_Visual_Interface#Connector
3) HDMI; http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/HDMI
I use the VGA port, and the DVI port.
RCA EN-V L26HD31, (26 inch HDTV) to the VGA port.
HP 2009M 20 inch Widescreen monitor to the DVI port.
Had to install drivers for HP 2009M.
Let's say I had two DVI ports on the graphics card.
(ATI Radeon HD5450 is the graphics card I have)
But I have a monitor with a VGA cable, and a monitor with a DVI cable.
I would (And have) use a VGA to DVI Adapter.
Note that the DVI is Male, and the VGA is Female.
The graphics card DVI connector is Female.
The VGA Cable connector is Male.
So.............what is the manufacturer name, and model number of the graphics card; plus what type of monitors are you trying to use?
That is, what type of monitor cables do they have?
My HDTV I'm using as a monitor is Digital. However I'm using a VGA cable on it. Best quality would be achieved if I got off my lazy rear, and attached a DVI Cable to it. It uses both.
VGA is Analog. A computer however puts out a digital video signal.
The computer has to convert the digital video signal to an Analog one. This slows the video signal down, and the quality is not as good.
Best to use a digital monitor. (Or a digital monitor WITH a digital cable. DVI Cable. Such as I need to do)
You are also using a PCI Express graphics card, NOT an AGP graphics card.
I'm wrong? OK.
In the meantime turn the computer off, unplug from power, and yank that AGP card out of the slot you put it in.
Tell me what expansion slot on the motherboard you put it in.
The Orange expansion slot on the motherboard, is a PCI-Express x16 slot. Uses a PCI Express graphics card -> ONLY
The white expansions slots are PCI.
Can use a PCI graphics card. CANNOT use an AGP graphics card.
