this is probably a BIOS setting. I don't know of a way to get around this. Most of the new graphics cards have 2 connectors on the back. The information I am finding on the Radeon X600 SE is saying it is a mobile chipset for laptops. You sure you have the right info? You can check in the device manager to see if you see 2 ATI Radeon video cards too. If there are 2 listed there, you can use both connectors on the card. There should be an adapter with the stuff that came with your card. Give us an update.
Hello. I recently decided to try to hook up two monitors to my Dell Dimension 5100C. I had been using my ATI Radeon x600 SE with one monitor, but the system also has integrated graphics on the motherboard. I thought I could simply hook up a second monitor to the integrated graphics VGA output, but it seems that my motherboard keeps the integrated graphics card disabled so long as my ATI card is connected to its PCI slot. I tried going into the BIOS to enable the onboard graphics, but it isn't an option; the only way I can enable it is by removing my ATI card. Does anyone know of a way to stop my on-board graphics card from being disabled automatically?
