Re: Dell 4700 dual monitors

  I'm trying to set up dual monitors on a Dell Dimension 4700. Using a Nvidia video card in the PCI slot on the motherboard. I've done this on many computers but cannot get it to take on this Dell. I tryed changing the BIOS from auto to onboard. The card is good it will run dual monitors on another computer I have. So I'm missing something, if anyone has any useful info I'd appreciate it.

Perhaps the 4700 isn't compatible with the MX4000, which is a very, very old design. Or, XP is defaulting to the onboard graphics, regardless if a monitor is attached. (I had that problem with a 2350 in which I'd installed a PCI video card.)
