I need to help someone (over the phone) on how to enable his integrated video so he can have two screens attached to a Dell Optiplex 990. Since this is over the phone, this will be difficult since I do not know exactly where the settings are.

Is there a resource, other than calling Dell, that would have screen shots of the BIOS screens so I can walk tht person through this?

Most add in cards already have two ports for multiple display . You might run into compatiblity problems trying to use the onboard video {intel??} with an addin card . Drivers might not support multiple displays. Easiest to use a newer card with two ports .
