    Two screen adapters cards on one computer

    Hi.
    I have a P3 1Ghz PC with a NVIDIA GFORCE3 AGP Card.
    I recently added an additional card, an old ATI mach64 PCI card.
    My winXP detected the exact card, but is unable to use it. It says it has a code 10 error. The troubleshout suggets three things which I tried and didn't fix the problem.
    1)Reinstall the card.
    2)Update driver.
    3)Replug the card.

    Any suggestions how to solve this problem?
    Waiting for reply.
    Thanks in advance.

    I believe that all varieties of the ATI mach64, and the S3 virge, will not work as a secondary card under Windows 2000/XP. They work fine under 9x, but at work all of the people using mach64 and verge pci cards for secondary monitors, all complained that their second monitor would not work when they upgraded to win2k. We replaced their card with Matrox 4MB millenium cards and they worked flawlessly.

    Sorry dude, I just don't think the driver support is there, or there is some unforseen hardware problem. I don't think ATI or S3 had any clue what Win2k or Win XP were gonna be like when they designed those cards back in the day .
