DoubleScreen - OnBoardVga+AGP - How?

by eyemid / October 31, 2004 3:27 AM PST

Well let me start with happy halloween.

Jumping directly to the subject. A week ago, i had two VGA's one as an AGP (Asus V7100Pro/64MB) and the other was some old 2MB pci Card. Thru those two vga's i had a double screen workstation that worked perfectly (my motherboard, intel gbf865, has an internat 64MB VGA that i'm not using). Now my PCI card got trashed. What i'm trying to do is to re-build my double screen workstation using the AGP and the Built-in VGA, but the problem is that i can't identify them both together. What i mean is that if i install the AGP, the built in VGA goes inactive and vice-sersa. How can i run them both? Please help.

Here is what i tried:
1- Installing automatically by autosearch
2- Installing the built-in vga manually.
3- Installing all the drivers via mother-boards's cd.
4- From bios setup, i tried switching the pci/agp load order just in case it affects it. nope no use.
5- Tried disabling the AGP driver while windows is running but still no use.

So what can i do to have a double screen workstation using my AGP and Built-in-VGA?

Thank you.
