View Full Version : Second monitor

05-03-2005, 06:48 PM
I have Gforce GA-GF1280 graphic card. Would like to connect another monitor. Had before Matrox with dual outputs, but GF has S-video and another output signed "Comp out".
Is it possible to actuate another monitor with this card and how?

Any ideas?

Nope don't think so. Thats usually to connect to a TV's RCA video in sockets

Or S-video input.

Hi Gonzales! Thanks. OK, another, may be, silly idea. I have Matrox dual head card. But my new motherboard Aopen AK73 has only PCI cockets and old Matrox needs AGP. Is there a way to work around this?

Nope afraid not Taly :(

If the mobo has no AGP slot, there's no way you're going to make one.

You would have to get another mobo with an AGP port.

My Flatmate has basically the same card, and using the NVIDIA drivers can use a TV as the second monitor, or clone the displays.

Install the latest NVIDIA drivers, plug a cable in and fudge around with it. You can't hurt anyone.
