Hello,
I have a HP Pavilion a6430f PC with Vista Home Premium. The computer came with Integrated graphics using nVidia GeForce 6150SE.

I later installed the NVIDA GeForce 8500 GT for dual monitor display.

Now I would like to add a third monitor but the computer doesn't see the Integrated graphics using nVidia GeForce 6150SE.

Can you help me? is this setup possible?

Thank you,

Either you need an adapter that allows for more then dual setups, or you will need a Radeon card that allows for eyefinity. You can get cheap ones, but you have to be careful as they all don't have eyefinity capabilities.

The correct answer came from yahoo answers. When installing the NVIDIA 8500 graphics card, it disabled the integrated graphics card. The answer was to tap F10 on start to access the BIOS, go into the BIOS and enable the integrated graphics and there you have it.
