    I have a Nvidia Geforce 3 graphics card that has both a monitor port and an S-video port. I want to set it up so My computer will broadcast the signal out of both the port and the monitor at the same time, but XP is not letting me, and display settings w/the video card isnt letting me either.

    Suggestions?

    do you have it cabled properly? once you do, reset your computer and it should auto detect. at least that is what the gf4 at work did.

    i tried that. it will only let me choose one or the other. i'm gonna check the Nvidia site for updates, and i'm gonna see if i can change something in windows for it too.

    have you checked to make sure the GeForce 3 is capable of running Dual Monitors?

    just because it has two methods of output does not mean it can display both outputs at the same time.
