I current run a PIII 933 with 512MB and Windows XP. My primary video card is a GeForce256 via AGP and I have installed an old ATI Mach64 GX PCI in order to initilize a second monitor. However when I reboot the Device Manager shows:
This device cannot start. (Code 10)
Click Troubleshoot to start the troubleshooter for this device.
When I remove my primary AGP card this card (ATI) boots up just fine and looks wonderful! I'm clueless as to what's going on here. Has anybody else seen this?
Yes I know these are old cards...I am still trying to debate buying the Quadro Pro Twinview ($$$!) or perhaps staying with two separate cards since my second monitors performance is not that critcal.
(I will be utilizing it to display my avionincs/instrumentation for my Flight Simulator FS2002Pro)
Sounds like a conflict. Both video cards want the same resources (IRQ, memory range). I'm not sure how to fix this, but I'm amost positive you'll be able to. Try moving the card to a different PCI slot. That might fix it. You don't want it in the first PCI slot (closest to AGP) or the fifth PCI slot as these usually share resources. Good luck!
Er......maybe something becaue of the conflict? I would just move the PCI vid card in different slots until it finally works. If it still doesn't, make sure to get the latest drivers and try again. What mobo are you using?
Yep tried every slot except 1 & 5 as you mentioned and still no luck.
My motherboard is:
AOpen AX34Pro/AX34ProII R1.11 Feb.12.2001
Award Modular BIOS v6.00PG
Here is the manufactirer code:
I have also tried to use two PCI Video Cards as well and I get the same thing.
So I went out and searched the AOpen site and I see did a very simular question posted a while back on the Mobo Forum but the guy got no response.

I updated my Mobo BIOS to R1.13 and went in to check it out and right there in fron of me was the option for Setting the initial display as PCI instead of AGP!!!!!
That was a thought in my mind, but I didn't think that would cause the particular problem you were having. In any case, congrats on getting it working, and thanks for posting the result as I can now remember this when I add a second vid card to this computer!
