Windows 7: Setting up triple monitors, trying to run 2 graphics cards?

Setting up triple monitors, trying to run 2 graphics cards?

I have done this before for myself without any problems and while bragging to my friend I was roped into setting up his computer with a third monitor. As the system is not mine I am trying to keep costs low and avoid buying anything.

In short I am trying to run three monitors, 2 through a ATI4600 series and 1 through an el-cheapo ATI Radeon 9250 256MB, however when both cards a plugged into the mobo the second (el-cheapo) will not run displaying a cannot start message.

Is this an incompatibility?

As I say I have done this before without any worries on my machine and am looking for a quick fix for a friends machine.

Any help appreciated

Yes there is,

Help with dual video cards

Mixing graphics cards on (ASRock M3A770DE) mobo

That should help explain why it isn't working. In short the older card/driver is canceling out the newer.
