    Dual Monitor Help

    *sorry if wrong forum (this is where I usally hang out and thought someone here can probably help)....

    I want to set up a second monitor on one of my machines that runs windows ME and has a geforce3 card in it.

    I understand that the card does not support dual monitors so I am wondering what I need to get it working.

    I have an old TNT card laying about - can I somehow install a second video card (without totally destroying and messing up my current settings [img]images/smilies/smile.gif[/img] to get the dual monitors working?

    or - is there a specific cheap solution I could go out and buy to get this setup fast and simple?

    Anyone able to walk me though this - or - point me to the proper source to get the job done.

    NOTE: I run games on this machine I am thinking of messing around with and if setting up the dual monitors on the machine is gunna mess up settings for playing games - then I will probably pass altogether

    Thanks in advance for any help,
    Oznob

    lol wrong forum for sure

    just stick the TNT card in + connect the second monitor , boot up , let windows install the card , check your display settings and you should see 2 screens there to play with & you are off.

    Dunno about ME but on 2K & XP you are going to have problems trying to get dual monitors if your primary graphics are on-board , but that does not apply here by the look of it.

    Well I wouldn't rip it out But yes, take it out and everything should return to normal. It should work with no problems though.
