Hi,
I have Sony VAIO (PCV-RX755) with onboard video. I wanted one more monitor so connected a separate AGP card. But the card disabled the onboard one. I cant find a setting in the BIOS to enable the thing again. I also tried this by using Hardware Profile, but the option is greyed out.

Plz help.....

I would say your manual should have all the info for these settings, failing that email tech support for your motherboard.

you can run the AGP or the onboard. nopt both . it will only give you headaches .so my suggestion is use your AGP . and most likely it supports DUAL monitors .. you can find this setting @
start>control panel>display>settings tab ... dual monitors there , ? then there you go .
hope this helps .
cheers ..
PS .. go back into the bios and disable the onboard G-card .. and you should be set to go .

Rebon, I already talked to Tech Support, they dont have any info about the motherboard. They say that these motherboards are speacially made for SONY.

Timothye, I was not able to find the dual monitor settimg. Did u meant that my card should be having 2 o/p to connect 2 monitors? If yes, I have to get a new AGP, this one has only 1 connector.

Most modern motherboards with onboard graphics will automatically disable the onboard graphics when a graphics card is added. So you wont be able to enable it with a card fitted.

You can run dual monitors by adding a pci graphics card to what you have or get a graphics card with a dual connector.

There's more info here:
