Problem with using 2 moniters at the same time

Discussion in 'A+ Certification' started by Eileen Foster, Jul 28, 2003.

  1. Just started learning the A+ Certification Mike Meyers CD ROM, and i found
    out you could use 2 moniters.

    I've got a 32 mb graphics card in a PCI slot, and my older 4 mb graphics
    card in a AGP slot. When i loaded Windows the moniter attached to the PCI
    slot said i needed to go into control panel, display, settings. (and set it
    up). When Windows loaded i installed the driver for the graphics card, but
    when i went into controll panel, clicked into display, and then clicked on
    settings the screen goes blue with an error message (saying hit
    control+alt+del). I think the drivers are set correctly but not completely
    sure. Any help would be appreciated, thanks.

    First off - have a look in your BIOS and see what graphic options are
    available there.

    You can use two monitors; If you look in Mike's A+ book, chapter 16, on
    video cards, you'll see that you'll need either two video cards or one dual
    head card. I use Matrox 550 dual head card. There are lots of dual head
    cards, but as Mike warns; check your motherboard book to see that your board
    will support a dual head card. Once you've confirmed that it will, Rock'n
    Roll SuzieQ.
    Good luck on your exam. I'm studying for it too.
