hi guys ive just recently been out and purchased a vga cable to connect my computer to my 23" goodmans lcd television, but realised i only have one vga port on the back of my dell pc. Now i was wondering if there is some kind of adaptor or something that allows me to have both my pc monitor and my lcd tv plugged into my computer at the same time, as its a pain in the arse having to take the cables out and swap them whenever i want to watch a dvd or video that i have saved on my computer.

Secondly was that in the last few months i have formatted my computer and somehow the graphics card has decided to go unrecognised and i cant get it installed again, and i dont know what graphics card it is either, and i was wondering how to go about reinstalling it etc.

Thanks for the help guys

Try Everest . . it will identify many devices even if their drivers are not loaded . . once you know the details of the video card, you can download the drivers for it.

He has drivers for it, he wants to split the video feed. :confused:

hehe guys sorry to confuse, i had 2 problems one was the vga and the more difficult problem im finding is whats the matter with my graphics card. Ive got a dell dimension 4700, and ive discovered i have a ati radeon x300 video card, but i dont know what to do next. The problem started when i formatted my computer and reinstalled everything. I then went to install Return to castle wolfenstein online game, and it said i didnt have a graphics card. Hope this clears up my problem
