i am trying to use old pci card in an old pci board with on board video, for multiple displays. each card functions separately as does the on board. has anyone else tried this and got it to work?
maybe i need to be more clear with this description, although wolfram23 seems closer to "on the nose". i have a 10 yr. old msi mb with 6 pci slots, i also have five individual pci single port vga video cards. i want to use 5 different monitors, but as soon as i plug in second card machine runs/no video shows. one used to be able to make this scenario work a very long time ago. i guess modern mbs count on a multiple port single video card now instead of wanting to use multiple single port cards? :|
