I'm using an old geforce fx5500, and windows 7 found and installed the drivers for it. I look in Device Manager, and I see my fx5500 and my onboard graphics both listed, and both reporting no issues. But when I right click on desktop and select Screen Resolution, the Display drop-down only lists the onboard graphics.
I only have one monitor, and I had to plug it in to the onboard graphics for installation, because my computer's BIOS and POST never appear on a monitor plugged in to the fx5500 (BIOS doesn't recognize it?). This was never a problem in XP though, it always did the same thing every time there. I installed XP on my onboard graphics, then switched to the card. And when booting, it would just show a blank screen til XP came up.
Is my card too old to be fully recognized? It is pretty ancient, only the 128mb version of the fx5500. I see everyone now using the fx5500 all have 256mb, is the driver different?
I just want to get off the onboard graphics, with its crippling 16mb memory!
