I'm trying to help out one of my friends and install dual monitors on his Dell XPS-210. I bought a new video card (Zotac graphics card GT218-ION 512MB 64BIT DDR3). I installed the new card in his PC and when I started it up, I couldn't get any video to display on either monitor. After not getting any video I read the instructions for the video card and it says to disable the onboard video. Does anyone know if the new video card I bought is compatible? I read that if you install a new video card, the onboard video is automically disabled but I'm not seeing any video at all when I boot. Do I need to...
1) Remove the new video card
2) Boot the PC
3) Uninstall the onboard video in device manager (OR, is there something in BIOS I need to change?)
4) Install the new video card
5) Cross my fingers and hope I get video??? At that point I'm hoping that I can use the VGA for one monitor on the card and get a converter from DVI to VGA for the 2nd monitor.
Any help is greatly appreciated. Thank you in advance!!!
