I recently used a different monitor than my main one, and since that time I have to switch my video plug in between my 2 slots/video cards, as every one or few times i cycle a shutdown of the comp, it switches compatability

In my device manager, it lists only one of the cards at a time, the one its currently using at the time...Really strange but I know theres got to be someway to just reset it or make it recognize and keep compatibility with my better card slot.


Using a 24'' westinghouse plug and play monitor on a Gateway

Switching between nvidia intigrated 6100 and slightly better upgraded nvidia 6600


Any help is MUCH appreciated. I can give much more information as needed

Go in the BIOS setup & see if you can disable the onboard video.
If not, see if you can set it to use the video card first.
If it has a PCI-E video card set it to PCI-R or "Peg" .

Can you go into a little more detail on how to do this? I can get to BIOS, but you'd be walking me from there
