Dell Optiplex 740 Graphics Cards Issue

I have a Dell Optiplex 740 that I'm using to test Windows 7 on. I have 3 video cards total. 2 are PCI cards and 1 is integrated. Windows sees the Integrated in the device manager but when I go in to the display control to change resolution I cant choose it to extended my screen to. It doesnt even show up in the selection. Only the 2 other cards. I went into the bios and made sure it wasnt disabled, I made sure the right drivers are installed, the cable is plugged in, and the monitor is on and has power. What else could be wrong?

Which Graphics Cards To Be Choosen For Graphics
anyone knows how the HD 2500 compares to the 3000 and 4000? I'm mostly looking for improved video transcoding compared to my Pentium G620 and don't really need the "gaming" graphics capabilities. But I haven't been able to find any information as to how the HD 2500 compare.

2 Graphics Cards - Not Detecting Both
I run a Nvidia GTX 275 Works flawlessly even if i use both ports on the back to use dual monitors.

If however i plug my Nvidia 8800GT in the second PCI-E x16 Slot the computer only recognizes the 8800GT which is in the second port and there is no GTX 275 showing in the Device Manager or Boot Menu.

So basically i plug in my second video card and my primary card just vanishes from the computer like its not even there.

Has anyone got an idea what could be the cause of this?

I have checked the drivers and its the same drivers at the moment for the 8800GT and the GTX 275.

I want to be able to run my 19" Widescreen Monitor on my GTX 275 and use my 8800GT Card for my tiny 15" Screen so i can play Games on my Primary card and be able to have Website open and viewable all the same.

(I'm not trying to run SLi as i know you need 2 of the same GPU and your motherboard needs to be able to support it, I don't like SLi so its all good so far.)

Multiple Graphics Cards
I currently have an ATI RADEON HD 4850 in my computer, but i have an old Nvidia 6600.. something laying around. I was wondering if it would be possible to drop that in my system and use it purely for additional monitors. I dont mean to link it with my ati card cause i know that that wont work, but basically keep it separate to run a few more moniters.

Edit: not only for windows 7 but if its possible on vista too.

How To Use 3 Monitors, Different Branded Graphics Cards
I am currently running 2 monitors on my PC, but I would like to add a third that I had on hand. My computer has an AOD 790 GX/128M Motherboard, with quad-core AMD Phenom II CPU. I currently have a Nvidia NX8800GTX GPU installed, which has my 2 monitors connected to it. I have a graphics card that I could install, however it is an ATI X1300. I would be willing to connect my third monitor either through the motherboards embedded graphics, or through my ATI card. Is it possible to do either of these? I am worried about a driver issue since the 2 GPU's are different brands, and I am not sure it is possible to use embedded graphics at the same time as a card. If this is not possible, what would be the cheapest way to add a third monitor?

Setting Up Triple Monitors And Trying To Run 2 Graphics Cards?
I have done this before for myself without any problems and while bragging to my friend I was roped into setting up his computer with a third monitor. As the system is not mine I am trying to keep costs low and avoid buying anything. In short. I am trying to run three monitors, 2 through a ATI4600 series and 1 through an el-cheapo ATI Radeon 9250 256MB, however when both cards a plugged into the mobo the second (el-cheapo) will not run displaying a cannot start message.

Installing Driver For 1900xt Graphics Cards
Ok so when I had xp installing drivers was pretty simple.

*uninstall then reboot

*driver cleaner reboot

*install new driver reboot and your all good

Now with windows 7 (64bit) i am having some problems. I am trying to update my driver for my 1900xt (ancient I know) because I seem to have below normal FPS in most games. I downloaded the ati driver package for win 7 64bit and installed. During installation I never actually see the driver or CCC being installed. I only see...


*Microsoft visual c++

*Cat installation Manager

*Ati problem report wizard

Now after installing Windows Defender pops up with the C:amd/cat... path, notsure what that is all about.

What is the correct way of installing and uninstalling drivers in win 7? Becuase I cant seem to get this to install properly. Do i need to disable something in windows?

ATI Reduces Support For Older Graphics Cards
As time goes on and a product catalog grows, it's not unusual for a company to reduce and eventually eliminate support for older products. In the case of ATI, AMD's graphics division, a new decision to reduce support for older graphics chips is about to take effect. To date, ATI has provided a new WHQL certified driver every month to nearly every graphics card capable of DirectX 9 acceleration. That includes cards all the way back to 2002's Radeon 9700 Pro. After this month's Catalyst 9.3 release, that will not be the case.

After Catalyst 9.3, products prior to the R6xx generation of graphics cards (that go by the Radeon HD 2000 series brand names) will be changed to "legacy support status." This means that these products will get quarterly WHQL driver updates, instead of monthly updates. AMD assures us that these products will still receive critical "hotfix" drivers if high-priority fixes are needed.

Do Car Games Exert Greater Pressure On Graphics Cards
I recently played NFS Hot Pursuit 2 (released 2002), and the next day my Graphics card busted. The strange part is that I have been playing Robin Hood Legend of Sherwood AND Harry Potter 4 (both released after 2004 and with higher graphics) for over two months now and no problem arose. Could it be that NFS, and car games in general, exert greater pressure on the VGA Cards than normal strategy games? I am wondering whether to discard NFS or to play it
