dual monitor question

ive got an agp nvidia geforce 6800 gt, and it has 2 adaptors on the back for dvi outputs. I only have one adaptor though so cant put a second monitor through that. I've tried to plug a second monitor into hte onboard adaptor, but without success..

anyone know any reason why this wouldnt work, or what i'd need to do to make it work?

its not coming up in device manager..

It's possible that the onboard was disabled when the new card was detected.
Time to get a second adapter...

Have problems (don't we all)? Head over to the help desk

Sounds like it was disabled in the bios (the onboard) -- but for good reason as why would you ever use onboard if you had a nice card like that?

Get an adapter!

You cannot use both onboard and an AGP video card at the same time.

Can you be scared half to death twice?
