Hi everyone,

I recently purchased a new computer (Windows Vista Home Premium) that has an ATI X1300 graphics card with 1 VGA and and 1 DVI output. I have 2 monitors with DVI inputs and my old graphics card laying around; an ATI Radeon 9250 with 128MB of video memory. I plugged the old card in with the new card and I do get the old one to work, but the new one is disabled by Windows Vista due to a driver conflict (eror code 43). Is there a way to get both of them to work at the same time? Thanks in advance for any suggestions!-Kevin

Welcome, You can't make the 2 video cards to work, because one of the driver is different and thats why its a conflict. If installing 2 different video card drivers then maybe your new or old may cause an issue.

Would it be an issue with Vista? I know that the old card's drivers are not compatible with Vista.

It's not about your video card is compatible or not compatible with Vista, your video card has a conflict, 2 cards are not idencial and it causes issues. Use only one card.
