Hi,

Sorry to be a pain, I have a foxconn n15234 and an NVIDIA Quadro FX 1700 (both shite, I know).

Just wondering if it was possible to run 3 monitors off?

Thanks

I'm having a hell of a time finding your motherboard. You could run two displays off the quadro card probably with no issues at all. And you may be able to piggy back off of your onboard for 3.

Thanks! I'm already running 2 off the card, but cant figure out the bios settings for the 3rd to run off the onboard, it's a pretty old board!

Thanks again

On many system the onboard is disabled when anther card is installed, on some you can reenable the integrated and use both on others you can only use 1 or the other.

You could do that as well. Your bios may not allow you to do it but some bios will have priority for which graphic display adapter to read off of.

Thanks guys. I think my bios only allows me to read one or the other (I could be wrong, I'm not very good at this stuff!). Would updating the bios help or should I just stop being cheap and upgrade?

It may or may not. I would guess that it wouldn't that is a feature I think would ship with the motherboard not the other way around. It may just be time for a upgrade :p
