Need A Reply >>>>please? >>>PROB WITH DUAL VID CARDS
I have posted this before with no response:
I have the following hardware:
Asus A7N8X - Deluxe
AGP Radeon 9500 pro
PCI Radeon 9200 SE
I am running FC1.
now I am currently running the system with the 9500 pro and it has all the 3D stuff working great. I want to run dual monitors and have had a few attempts at this with the following results:
Running just the AGP 9500pro in the system, I get the PCI BUS ID = 3:0:0 or 3:0:1 (b/c of the DVI port)
Running just the PCI 9200 SE in the system, I get the PCI BUS ID = 1:8:0 or 1:8:1 (b/c of the DVI port)
both of these cards support two monitors each, but I am interested in 1 monitor per card on the standard vga port.
When I leave the PCI and AGP cards in the system at the same time ---
and boot with AGP set in the bios, as well as the XF86Config written for the AGP 9500pro, as is well in my linux universe. The computer boots and I am typing with it right now.
but with the PCI set in the bios, the XF86Config (or XF86Config-4) set for the PCI 9200SE, my linux universe collapses to a big black hole....as the screen for that card stays blank (this result is the same even if I try the bios setting on AGP or PCI).
This card works however in when the AGP card is not in the system.
I really really want to set up these dual monitors (BTW I am trying to run dual head for the setup)......so if someone could give me a hand getting these two blasted cards to like each other....It would be awesome....
