i have tested each and every componet to make sure everything works.

1st i have 3 monitor and 3 video card

monitors :
2 dell 19 inch
1 view sonic 19inch

video card :
builtin VIA 32mb video card
ATI 128mb video card (AGP)
32 PCI video card (dnt know its really old but working)(PCI)

Operating System :
Window XP pro

MotherBoard :
Elitegroup P4VMM2 VIAP4M266A DDR VGA+AGP SB LAN mATX
http://www.metaleks.lv/cenas/20/2020.php

BIOS :
AMIBIOS Simple Setup Utility v. 1.21.12

when i plug all of the 3 video card and start the computer only the AGP Runs. when i take out the ATI(AGP) only the builtin runs.

Confuse?
Comments?
Ideas on how to make it run?
thank you in advance

stick them in, XP does the rest... just right-click on your dektop>properties>settings and you sill see it will have a greyed out pic of a monitor along with the normal one. click on the greyed out one (or one of the two greyed out ones in your case) and check the box at the bottom of the window that says "extend my windows desktop onto this monitor" click apply et voila

you need to go into the bios and change the boot up video device to pci.
