    I have a dinosaur computer with a first genration pci slot available for a video card. The video is wired to the board and it's an HP running Windows XP. Finding a video card has been extremely difficult - they're all pci express. I found a couple of old ones and plugged them in but the machine wouldn't boot or it booted and I got no video at all.

    What I'm wondering is if there's some other geeky way I can set this up? Like a USB video adapter? I really need two monitors. The second one sits darkly on my desk - mocking me.

    Hopefully I can put in for another computer soon, but until then I'm trying to make do.

    Thanks
