Why is it that the display adaptor in my motherboard doesnt show up in device manager? I bought the computer with an Extra video card already installed but the one built into my motherboard isn't recognized. I would like to have duel monitors but this has kinda put A stop to that.

I have windows XP home SP2

I just ran AIDA32 and it claims that it is disabled. How can I enable it when it is not in device manager? This is all so confusing.

If your second video card is AGP it can't be done for your on-board adapter is also recognized as AGP and they will conflict with each other that is why it will only show one in the device manager.

It can be done with a PCI card.
