[AG-TECH] Matrox G200 problem on the second monitor

You are right.  It's plug and play.  After I inserted the card in the PCI
slot and restarted the machine.  The machine installed the default driver
that came with win2k.  When I tried to install the software from the CD that
came with the card, it said the driver was already installed.  I think I'll
delete this one and get a new one from the Matrox website.

Thank you very much.

Did you install the Matrox drivers from their website? I think this is
somethign that may show up with the default win2k drivers.

You'll see the symptom of no video on the display if the different panes
are set to different color depths. If you set them all to 16-bit you should
see video.
