I've been trying to setup a dual-monitor display for my pc
Win7 Enterprise 32bit SP1,
Asus P8 z68-M pro motherboard,
Intel Core i3-3220 3.30Ghz ;
4Gig ram

After failing to use the mobo video outputs for multidisplay i purchased the Asus HD 5450 silent (512mb DDR3) external graphic card, i disabled the intergrated graphics in the bios, but the system hangs after i log into windows... Could the 240 watt PSU be the problem???

Please help

you didn't need a graphics card. this is what your motherboard has

Video Ports
D-Sub
DVI
HDMI
DisplayPort

you just needed the proper cables to hook up 2 monitors to the board.

yup... just in case if you want gaming with dual monitor or for better resolution and high quality rendering display. Graphic card is required. I'm not sure whether HD 5450 support dual monitor display. But with latest catalyst software it should do. You just need two plug the cables in two different ports to your monitor. In this case your gpu have dvi and vga. So you need a vga and dvi cable attached to monitor. Then the amd catalyst software should do others. Btw you dont need to disable your integrated graphics. Just restore the bios to defaults and try booting. Finally based on review its didnt state tht hd 5450 can support dual monitor. Just in case give it a shot. If didnt work. just plug out the graphics and attach the cables to onboard mobo graphics port. GoOd luck :D

512MB RAM? That sounds like WAY too little RAM to run Windows 7 Enterprise. Can you put some 4-8GB RAM in the computer/workstation/server?

OP, have you checked the heat sink on the graphics card. may need a renew of thermal paste........ also may need a fan to blow on it somehow.
