Trying to setup a VL420 with 3 monitors. Can do so in VL400 (Pent III) but P4 seems to have difficulty. AGP primary and PCI secondary. P3 setting was S3 primary on board AGP with TNT2 PCI secondary. Any ieas?

Re: VL420 dual screen capability

Are the cards properly configured in windows? If they are both properly detected and the good drivers are installed it should work. How did you configure agp and pci in the bios for the cards ?

Re: VL420 dual screen capability

Cards cannot be configured in Windows as the OS hangs on bot when trying to load the drivers. AGP set to primary display. PNP OS set to yes. One PCI video card on it's own will boot and detect no worries. system just does not like a second card...let alone third.
