I tried for many hours to achieve the above set-up with older systems but hit a lot of problems. I found out many others had also hit problems when I sought assistance on the web. For the benefit of others, this is how I setup MSI MS-6728 (MSI 865g /p/pe neo2 ) with 3 monitors – using NVIDIA AGP FX 5600 & PCI FX5200 video cards. I hope this helps. A pdf of the solution, with pictures and screen dumps, is here ... http://tinyurl.com/25b79dl The outline is.. INTRODUCTION KEY ELEMENTS 1. Motherboard 2. Video cards 3. Monitors 4. Bios 5. Drivers HOW TO 1. Have only the AGP video card installed with 2 monitors connected. 2. Delete all reference to existing Nvidia drivers. ( Use Control Panel > add/remove programs OR CCleaner ). 3. Restart Computer – do not accept M/soft to look for P&P drivers. 4. Restart Computer and initiate the Bios with the DEL key. Make sure PNC/PCI configuration - Init. Graphics Adapter Priority is set for AGP/PCI as per this photo… Save on exit by pressing F10. 5. Restart Computer - do not accept M/soft to look for P&P drivers. 6. Download and install Nvidia Driver 93.71 (93.71_forceware_winxp2k_english_whql.ex e) from this site .. http://www.nvidia.com/content/DriverDownload-March2009/confirmation.php?url=/Windows/175.16/175.16_geforce_winxp_32bit_english_whql.exe&lang=us&type=GeForce. DO NOT USE THE LATEST DRIVERS – THEY WILL NOT WORK. 7. Restart Computer – set each monitor screen to its native resolution (desktop / right click – properties – settings). 8. Turn OFF computer. 9. Install the PCI video card and connect the 3rd monitor. 10. Restart Computer - do not accept M/soft to look for P&P drivers. 11. Install Nvidia Driver 93.71 (93.71_forceware_winxp2k_english_whql.ex e) This will identify the additional PCI video card.. 12. Restart Computer – set 3rd monitor screen to its native resolution (desktop / right click – properties – settings). 13. Set the monitor order to suit by click / hold / move with mouse from this screen.. 14. Restart Computer. All should now be working as per the picture of “Desired Result”.

Jeff and others.. Need you help... QUESTION: Can the MS- 6728 m/board with the latest bios be set up to use both AGP AND PCI video cards at the same time? I have 2 video cards of the same generation (1 x AGP nvidia 5600 & 1 x PCI nvidia 5200) so there should be no conflict there. I can get either card to work independantly with 2 monitors - without the other card working. I tried altering the BIOS. - PNC/PCI configuratiion - Init. Graphics Adapter Priority. This enabled either AGP or PCI to be initialised first, then falling back to the other card if the first card is not available. This works as it says but I cant find where to initialize BOTH cards. QUESTION: Can the MS- 6728 m/board with the latest bios be set up to use both AGP AND PCI video cards at the same time? FYI I have.. <<< System Summary >>> > Mainboard : MSI 865G/P/PE Neo2 (MS-6728) > Chipset : Intel i865PE > Processor : Intel Pentium 4 @ 2600 MHz > Physical Memory : 3072 MB > Video Card : NVIDIA GeForce FX 5600 AGP > Hard Disk : MAXTOR (60 GB) > Hard Disk : WDC (250 GB) > Hard Disk : WDC (80 GB) > DVD-Rom Drive : _NEC DVD_RW ND-2500A > Monitor Type : ASUS VK266H - 25 inches > Monitor Type : AOC International LM720/LM720A - 17 inches > Network Card : RTL8139/810x Fast Ethernet Adapter > Network Card : RTL8139/810x Fast Ethernet Adapter > Operating System : Microsoft Windows XP Professional 5.01.2600 Service Pack 3 > DirectX : Version 9.0c (September 2009) TIA..
