I have a ASUS P2L97DS mothercard with a ASUS 3S ExPlorer 3000 AGP and a S3 Vibra DX (375).
The problem is, the AGP card wont get itself enabled!!!
It is initialised, as it says on the monitor but when I enable "Extend my desctop onto this monitor." and "Apply" nothing heapens, tried restarting and still nothing... It just ignores my selection.

Also, is it possible to use the AGP card as the primary display card?

I have all the latest drivers for the cards.

And the Regisry shows only one graphic card: PCI_VEN_12D2&DEV_0018&SUBSYS_54A32A15&REV_10_000800

This under HKLM\Config\0001\Display\Setings\

Here's it:

ASUS 3DeXplorer 3000 AGP dosn't support multiple monitors while secondary card.

I found a new beta BIOS for my PL297-DS (1002.24) where I can chose if the AGP or PCI card will start upp first!
