    My onboard video went out on Optiplex GX1. Put in Matrox Millinium II. Downloaded drivers. Installed fine but now system shows that I have (2) video adapters and (2) monitors ((1) default monitor and (1) Plug and play. I cannot get into the settings as it says that I have to disable multi-display. I cannot find any reference to this in Windows. Thanks for your help.

    Look in device manager, it is probably still showing that you have a second(your old) display adapter listed. You can disable the one that is defective in the BIOS or set it in device manager.

    You were correct. I removed (1) of the Matrox adapters and it removed the default monitor. Thanks a lot.
