    Ok here is one for you, this EXACT same card ATI X1300 was in my Dell 755, 4 gigs of ram dual core. This Dell I am messing with is an Inspiron 531 6 gigs of ram dual core. BOTH run w 8.1 64 bit. .

    The 755 as late as last week had this EXACT card EXACT same adapter that funny dvi to dual VGA out. I hade one VGA going to my main monitor and #2 going to my TV (cause I use a sling box for my tv via wifi) worked perfect zero issues. I normally would use Mozilla for the TV portion, because I could make it open on the tv instead of sliding it over. NOW I have duplicate displays and cant 'slide' things over to the second monitor...TV is not in the loop anymore. When I run ID in display setting(s) I get #1 one on both monitors, no dual display options.......and I am stuck with the damn Microsnot standard driver which I know is the issue. When I try to manually install the x3100 drivers I get the not compatible crud. When I try load legacy ATI in the proper mode I get "you must be in admin mode to run this program' I even did the command prompt (net user Administrator /active:yes) command successful. I am also an admin on this computer. The reason I was using the 755 is because my baby after 5 years died and is in computer heaven while I do my rebuild...so I don't know chew on that for a beer or two. Thanx
