WinXP Ignoring Video Card!
« on: July 29, 2011, 04:59:17 PM »
I am currently running WinXP Professional on my computer.  I recently tried to add another monitor to my setup.  My computer has several video card slots.  One has a different connecter than all the rest.  An NVIDIA Quadro2 Pro card occupies this slot.  When I inserted a new card into one of the other slots (and connected the new monitor properly), Windows boots and works fine.  However, the new card is ignored by Windows.  When I looked in Device Manager at the new card, it said "The device could not start (Code 10)".  I tried the same with a different new video card and the same thing happened.  When I removed my standard card and only left the new one, Windows booted fine, sending video data to the new card and monitor.  But when I put the old one in with it, the new card fails to start.  Help?
I love .NET!

Windows doesn't see it unless it's the only video card.  I can't turn it on from there.
