PowerEdge T610 Dual Display Issues

I have a Dell T610 and T310 I am trying to run dual monitors on. The 310 was easy, I just put in a spare graphics card and it worked great. The T610 on the other hand doesn't have PCIe x16 lanes on it. So that is not an option for me.

I am trying to use a StarTech USB to VGA monitor adapter to get dual monitors up and running on the T610. The on board graphics card in the T610 is a Matrox G200eW. When I install the driver that comes with the USB to VGA adapter I get an error saing "Incompatible... WDDM Issue..." I then went to the Matrox website seeing if there was a driver that would fix this issue. I installed their latest drivers to no avail.

Any tips or advice would be great!

Thank you!

  1. Doesn't the T610 have a couple of PCIe-x8 slots? You could just put a GPU into one of these slots. Granted it won't be super fast, but if you're not gaming it won't matter.

    Yes it had 4 of them, but the problem is I only have a spare x16 card. But I have quit a few of these USB to VGA adapters that I was hoping to put to use.

    No gaming on these, just need an extra display.

    Thank you for the ideas!
  3. The X16 card should work. They don't make x8 cards. The X16 will adjust to the x8 bandwidth speed.

    It doesn't fit into the slot is the problem. So I am trying to use the USB to VGA adapter as a solution to this problem. But I ran into the current problem trying to use the adapter.

    Update: So I updated the Bios and all the drivers, hoping it would fix the WDDM issue. But nothing changed, I am trying to avoid having to buy a PCie x1 graphics card when I have these adapters readily available.

    Thank you
