Default Dual Monitors

Im having trouble setting up dual monitors. My computer has an Intel 82865G Graphics controller installed with it. When I add in a Nvidia graphics card, it defualts to it, and cant even find the intel card. Any suggestions?

Right click on the windows background - go to Settings - you should see 2 squares 1 and 2 labelled inside. Set it to spanning mode, and adjust your resolution appropriately. You first have to make sure that you vga cables are plugged in correctly and whether or not the ccard can even support dual monitors.

I'd be really surprised if your TNT2 had a VGA output AND a DVI output. since you added in that new card, your onboard video probably disabled itself. I'm guessing your TNT2 is PCI becuase mine was. You need to buy a more robust videocard with both a VGA output and a DVI output, or 2 DVI outputs. Nvidia GeForce FX 5200's and ATI Radeon 9250's usually have DVI outputs as well as VGA outputs.
