Does at least one monitor have ots own hard-wired video cable, or are
you using the same cable for both? Have you tried another video card?

This is the same poster as above just a different Email addy... No I
haven't. I have no other video card that I can install at the

related to the motherboard. I just hope that the AGP slot hasn't been
messed up in some form or fashion.
