Having two display adapters showing in device manager is quite normal for your card as it supports a dual monitor display.Afraid i can't help you with the other problem tho

Sorry but I can't help you, apart as from saying that I have seen this questioned possed recently on the net, but I can't remenber where sadly.

I was searching for answers concerning my new graphic card that deeps blanking out, and then won't reboot. So I think that I rather that I had two monitors showing, than a none working card.

But I am sure that there is a way of diabling one of the monitors, if I remember where I'd saw it I will post back of course.

on my other machine i have an nvidia GForce FX 5200 128mb that only shows once in my display adapters thanks so far anyway
