Hi folks - looking for some help. I have a Fujitsu Siemens M7VKA mobo with 1 ghz Athlon, 512 ram, Win XP home edition, 2 hard drives,2 optical drives,soundblaster pci,lan pci and usb cable modem. (card prior to new install Nvidea tnt 64) I installed a new Radeon 9000 atlantis pro agp card to my pc today using the latest drivers from Ati. I am using my monitor on the DVI setting with a digital cable.
I have noticed the graphics card is displayed in device manager twice same description but the second one has a hyphon then secondary after it.
It does not matter which i disable or remove, at the next startup it comes back?
Could it be something in the bios? Perhaps enabling on board graphics? My bios is award modular version 6 (i think)
Sounds like you have a Gremlin with Windows assuming you have two graphics cards. I read your previous thread. My advice for the simplest solution is to re-install and start again. Windows has got confused and the only way to sort that out is to start over.
Jester2k II - it does have a DVI & analogue output and can support two monitors - is this what you mean? Also Windows freezes when either Weakest Link game starts up or my Star Wars dvd game starts up (only two games i have! - sad really, lol!!)
FEISAR - Do you mean windows or the graphics card?
Check to see if you have VSYNC on...in the latest drivers it's in the 3d tab...go to display properties.....settings....advanced..need to put a check in the use custom settings box then click custom.Also check if there's an option in the game your playing to turn it off.I had a problem with Call Of Duty until i did that...cured it
