    ok im running windows xp on a crap emachines... with a crap sg prosavage drr onboard video card.... just out of general curiosity i wanted to try to setup dual monitors... so i found an old ati rage2c 8meg agp card

    i installed the ati and booted the computer

    the computer boots and uses the rage as the default card so i went into the device manager to switch the sg to the default card and noticed that the sg isnt listed in the device manager
    i tried to reinstall the drivers for the sg and they error... with no code or message

    i rebooted and went into the bios and could not find a setting of any kind for the onboard card.... im at a loss...

    and very tired...


    thanks for any help you guys may be able to give

    you might not be able to run any card w/onboard vid. Every motherboard I've ever dealt with will detect the add in card and shut off onboard vid by default.
