OT : Dual monitor start up behaviour

Recommended Posts

Some help guys on strange dual monitor start up problem. Every single time I wish to use the machine I have to start it twice. First time starts the AGP video card and attached monitor but the screen then goes blank and you cannot do anything but switch the machine off. Restarting immediatly from obviously a cold boot the machine starts the AGP andthen the PCI card and everything works fine from then on. I have tried changing the IRQ number for the second PCI card but the machine always allocates both to IRQ16. I have Windows XP, a Geforce2 GTS AGP card and a Velocity 128 PCI card.Nigel BarkerStillington

Have you tried moving the PCI card to another vacant futher away from the AGP slot. Also in BIOS, make sure you have the proper settings for starting the AGP. Your BIOS may be confused and starts the AGP and PCI together. There may be several settings in your BIOS to change.
