I am attempting to build a machine out of some spare parts and I have a couple old video cards. Each of the video cards works fine by themselves but for some reason won't work simultaneously. Both are standard PCI not onboard or pcix so I'm sure they can work together.
The output ofgives me:Code:lspci | grep VGA
So both are detected. But when I go to activate my second monitor, it doesn't show up in the list. All i get is:Code:01:07.0 VGA compatible controller: Advanced Micro Devices [AMD] nee ATI Rage 128 RE/SG 01:08.0 VGA compatible controller: NVIDIA Corporation NV11 [GeForce2 MX/MX 400] (rev b2)
Side note... whats up with it naming the monitor laptop? I'm on a custom built desktop....
Anyhow, thats not the end of the weirdness. If I log in and then log out, the second screen comes on and gives me a bunch of white vertical lines with some text that I can't really make out. It looks like:
And if I shut the machine down the splash screen seems to work just fine as well:
I have never encountered any problems like this and any help would be greatly appreciated!
