Multiple Video Cards, Help !

I have a ATI Radeon HD 4800 that I use with DVI for my main display. I recently installed a Radeon 7500 PCI with the sole purpose of using the S-Video output to stream video to my TV. Under the device Manager I get the following error with the new card

PCI bus 7, device 1, function 0

"This device cannot find enough free resources that it can use. (Code 12)

If you want to use this device, you will need to disable one of the other devices on this system."

What can be going on? Please help !! Thanks !

Those adapters can not work well with each other. We can try something if you want, but I don't think it will help.

If you feel like trying, first disable all unused ports in the bios like serial, parallel, floppy etc...

Right click on the 7500 in the device manager. Properties. Details tab. Change dropdown to hardware ids. Copy and paste the results here.

Also, tell me exactly which driver you're currently using for the 4800. A link to it would be helpful. Extract that driver to C:\ATI and I can tell you what to do next, after you post.

Here is the Driver Details for the 4800. I had bought that 7500 bc it was cheap and figured I just needed it to do the S-Video for the TV

Usually the "not enough resources" is a driver issue. Have you upgraded both drivers?
