Running Win98 Multi-Monitor with AGP & PCI
Posted on 1999-01-01
I can't set my AGP video card to be the primary display adapter in Windows 98 multi-monitor mode
I have an Asus P2B motherboard, a Matrox Millenium G200 AGP video card and an PCI S3 Virge DX (Manufacturer Azure).
From what I have read the video card that is installed last becomes the primary display adapter.
I have tried installing the S3 PCI card 1nd and 2st. Every time I have tried the PCI video card becomes the Primary display adapter.
Can an AGP video card be configured to be the primary adapter in multi-monitor mode?
Also, the first video card installed always takes interupt 11, when the PCI card is installed it takes interupt 10 (whether it is installed 1st or 2nd). Is the PCI card taking over as Primary VGA because IRQ 10 has a higher priority than IRQ 11. Can I manually configure the IRQ settings if this is causing the problem?
