alright, I dont know what kind of mother board I have..
First of all let me tell you what Im doing..
I want to set up dual monitors. The WAS my bros computer but he got a new one. now.. I bought a new videocard for this computer and left the old one in and just put the new ATI Raedon (or whatever) one in.
- your supposed to go to display settings (after haveing the other monitor hooked in the other video card*remember I have 2*) selecting the secondary monitor, and click "exted my desktop to this monitor". I do that.. click ok.. and the damn thing unchecks itself, so it doesnt work.
- I went to my device manager and saw the SM buc controller had a big yellow ? next to it so I clicked search for driver and it could not find.
- I know its an intell chipset, at least I think it is, am Im hoping it has something to do with the old video card and will fix everything.
- on the device manager I dont see the old video card and it recognizes my monitors under
------GIGABYTE RADEON 9200 (this being my main monitor?)
------GIGABYTE RADEON 9200 - Secondary (and this being second one?)
ANd under monitors
----------hp pavilion mx75 (monitor Im using right now, main one)
So im figureing that its not even recognizing my other monitor because its not on the device manager... BUT it has my main monitor and a secondary? so it is recognizing it? but its just not showing name? Im confused.
I dont know how to figure out what kind my motherboard is with out taking my computer apart again. so my computer is a hp pavilion 541c
if you want a short cut I did the work
