Having problems with your HP Compaq d330 (DG315A) PC Desktop ?

I have aDC7100CMT with a Radeon x300 pci express card and I want to hook up 2 moniters. I bought a VGA splitter and I get the same picture on both screens. When I go to moniter settings it will not setup the 2nd moniter.I tried hooking one to the card and one to the motherboard it the mother board connection won't work.


Answers :

The specs say that the Radeon x300 has Dual integrated display controllers so it should run two monitors. I don't know why you're using a video splitter. All you're doing is splitting one video signal into 2 parts and both monitors will show the exact same thing. You need 2 individual controls on the card. One for each monitor. When you add a video card to the Compaq computer then you disable the onboard video card so you're right, that won't work. Your Radeon, according to the specs on ATI'w web site should have two seperate controls thus two places to plug in a monitor. You then should be able to enter your video driver's setup and choose your primary and secondary monitor. You can then choose whether you want side by side or one above the other, etc. There are several different senarios for setup depending on your needs. Also one of the problems we all face is do you have a ATI Radeon X300 video card or an ATI Radeon X300 chipset in a card made my another manufacturer. I only looked up the card on ATI's web site to be sure but if it is actually an ATI chipset put in another manufacturer's video card it might not have the same options. Just check and make sure that the card is multi monitor display capable. Basically it has two monitor connectors on the back of the card.
First open control panel and then make sure you select 1 vidio adapter as primary and other as slave.
Go to start ->control panel ->display-then you find 2 adapter there select 1 as primary and other as secondary.
Then check.
Let me know if you need further assistance.
