:welcome: kriss1220

Unfortunately you cannot :( this because when you insert an add on video card the MBs integrated video chip is automatically disabled, this feature can itself be disabled on some MBs however in this instance it is the add on video card that will be disabled when the presence of the MBs integrated video chip is detected by the BIOS during POST.

The Ati x300 add on video card was/is available with different ports available, one type had a single VGA port and another type had a DVI port and a VGA port, which type of card do you have (I suspect the single VGA type based on your question).

Thaks for ur post.

I read that u can force intergated video in BIOS but I don't have that option. I tried to update Bios but I get errors. I also read that when u know correct pins u can solder it together and try to plug it in to dvi. To answer ur quwstion- yes this is only one vga output. too bad.

If u have any suggestions then please let me know.
Wouldn't like to buy a new one with 2 vga's.

Thanks!

Not sure about this and so cannot comment.

If you are looking for a new video card we can help with that but we will need to know the brand and model name or number of the MB and the PSU, the size of the case as in full or mid tower or SFF (small form factor) in which country will you make the purchase and finally your maximum budget.
