Hello, I want to run Multiple Displays, I have Win 98, a Packard Bell 880 with a Biostar M5SIB motherboard with a SiS5597/5598 on-board chipset, when I installed a Voodoo3 2000 PCI card I get a yellow exclamation mark in the video adapters for the SiS, It tells me that I need a driver that supports Multiple Support Displays and to contact the motherboard maker for one, Well I've contacted Biostar, 3DFX, Sis and what's left of Packard Bell of North america, and they all ignore me or lead me on then ignore me, so I figure they don't make one and aren't compatible to do so. I've also tried Windrivers, Driversguide and many, many of
Microsoft's sites. I don't have enough slots to run 2 video cards and disable the on-board or I'd do that! So, can you help me out, I think I already know the answer. I know the Voodoo card will work only as the primary display adapter!!!
You wouldn't believe how many times I've explained this....

I tried for days to get an onboard SIS chipset on an ASUS motherboard to work and gave up. Put in another PCI card and disable the onboard SIS stuff. One U get that memory back and two it works I run twin 17" KDS monitors on the PC on a Banshee 16 meg AGP and a Trident 4 meg for the second 17". Once you get a second monitor running you are going to ask yourself how you ever did without it! But remember, video uses a lot of memory! Be prepaired to lose some resource! I run 128 megs of 100 Mhz DIMM and still get down to 50% resource while multi tasking 1/2 dozen programs on the 2 screens.
