Hi Clayton,Was the 2 monitor set up a new PC, or was it an upgrade to a PC that had been running flawlessly? If you take out either the PCI or AGP card, does everything now run OK? How much juice is your power supply pumping out? If it's only 300W this could be the problem. But if the problem persists with just one card, then it sounds like it's something else.

Make sure all your cards are properly inserted. Sometimes after installing other cards, can cause other cards to pop halfway out. Don't just check the video cards, a half popped out sound card can cause the "blue screen of Death" as well. You may have to re-seat all you PCI cards.I had the same thing happen to me, after installing a 2nd Video card. My sound card had slightly popped out, and you couldn't even really see that it had. I didn't get the blue screen of death all the time, just sometimes, but after reseating it, fixed it up.Cheers :-beerchug

Similar problems - turned out to be a faulty RAM module. Try reinstalling RAM, moving them between slots, running with one missing (if you have more than one), all these things may help.

Thanks for posting the solution to your problem. I'll file this one away somewhere in my aging grey matter and hope that I can pull it out the next time someone has a problem similar to yours.

Hi :-)I use four extra monitors for FS2002...without any problems!I have one(main)AGP Geforce card in my system and 2x M64 PCI cards and also 1x Dualcard(two monitor card)from Appian. To get rid of your "blue screens off dead"(BSOD) you need NVidia Chipset based PCI cards....This works alway's!!What kind off videocards you use now?Bestjaco
