How are you connecting your two monitors? Is it that they one works, but not the other? You should maybe check your drivers for the card you're using and check if it supports dual screen.
If you want my recommendation of video card it does depend on your budget. However, almost all of the current Nvidia gaps are dual screen compadable and you should be able to grab the low end one for about $40-$60.
You didn't tell more details about your problem with your graphics card so I can troubleshoot what will be the problem with it. Before I solve it, lemme ask you a few question:
Since your OS is Win XP, is it 32bit or 64bit? What is your CPU frequency clock speed? What application does your graphics has a problem? And also, what is your monitor's maximum resolution? And what is your mobo (sometimes this has some source of issues).
I'll wait for your response to this. Thank you.
If you're having trouble on display in your monitor,please check the following;
1. Check your CPU if its responding,booting or the power light indicator is running. 2. Check the video card slot pin if its align and clean,as well as the serial/com cable connected ion both ends. 3. Try to replace another video card, might the current attached is damage. 4. Check all cords and see if there's some intermittent lines neither need to replace new cord.
OK, I am curious how are you going to install a new graphics card without installing a new graphics card? "picking up and image from the CPU is there anything i can do to install a
new PCI graphics card with out having too install the new graphics card"
You can install a different graphics card in the computer assuming you have an open expansion slot. If the Current Graphics card is actually installed in the AGP slot open the Main CPU unit and remove it then install the new card. If when you started the computer you saw anything on the screen, the DELL logo or Bios setup, the problem most likely is not the graphics card being bad but possibly that the settings in windows some how changed and it is set to something it can't support or the monitor has gone out. If it is the graphics card and it is built onto the motherboard you will have to install the new card and when the computer starts enter the Bios to change the BIOS settings to disable the on board card or it will give you problems with conflicting resources. Most graphics cards use the same resources so two cards in the same computer will conflict with each other and neither will work. I would test with a different monitor before replacing the graphics card.
Hello ghinea18, sorry you can't do that because this will cause hardware conflict, that's why motherboard bios automatically disable integrated graphics if you install video card using pci express x16 slot - Nvidia GeForce 7300SE. do you know if your video card has dual vga or dual dvi connection?
You can try dual display, im not sure if this card supports dual monitors because nvidia online specs does not show full specs on 7300se series. \
The Compaq s3200nx comes with integrated video; Via KM266 graphics. It has: Available slotsTwo PCI AGP4x 1.5v
AGP is for Video but nothing else and it must be 4v. PCI is for all types of cards including Video.
You can get a PCI Video card with more memory on it than your current video. You must verify your monitor connection. Is it VGA? or DVI? Make sure the card has the right type of connection.
Ok, let's explain this. RAM does not necessarily make your pc faster. Your pc can be faster if you upgrade your CPU or graphic card(only graphic application will make you notice the increased speed in graphics). RAM can be a bottleneck for application that need a lot of memory like photoshop when working on multiple very high resolution images or 3D cad when working on large assemblies, or VMWare. Vista manages the RAM in such a way that you might notice a slight performance increase and less disk usage during standard desktop activities, but XP doesn't. if you don't use very many applcations at a time and/or you don't use memory consuming applications, the added RAM is not used at all and your computer won't be any faster than it used to be. Video memory is basically the same. you will notice a difference in performance from a large video memory(512MB-1GB-2GB) only if you game at high resolution like 1080p or higher, usually supported only by large monitors like 20" or larger.
