9010, onboard graphics plus add ons (6 screens)

Hello I have just purchased a refurbished optiplex 9010. I want to run 6 screens. I have 2 graphics cards installed that run 2 monitors each. However, the on board graphics aren't working with the extra cards installed. In fact, if I just plug into the onboard sockets without plugging into the added cards, I get an incompatible message that says I have to use the added cards only. The onboard graphics works fine if I remove the extra cards. How can I fix this? Thanks

Integrated, onboard graphics are automatically disabled with any graphics cards installed.

I'm not familiar with how well 'Y' adapters work for extra monitors, but some people use them.

Ok thank you.

Would Y adaptors be preferable to an extra 2 display graphics card in the PCIEx1 slot?

No.

Doesn't work that way.

You cant add card after card after card.  You must choose a card with 6 outputs.
