    hey, im running with 2 graphic card, one ati (pci) and 1 nvidia(agp) I have this problem where windows thinks that the PCI is the default monitor. When i check for monitor settings it says PCI is monitor 1 and AGP is monitor 2. Even when i boot the computer before i even get into windows what it does is it shutoff the monitor pluged in the AGP. Displays the boot process on the PCI and when it gets into windows login it shutsoff the PCI and passes back to the AGP.

    I dont get it as to by it defines the PCI to act as primary monitor! Is there a magic setting somewhere that can overide this so that i can defice the AGP to be primary and PCI to be second?
    Im not talking about the "make this display primary" in the setting. Clicking this will make that monitor display desktop but it will still be marked as being monitor 2

    Is this a windows settings?
    a bios setting?

    Has this happen to anyone else?

    i need help

    IN BIOS there should be a setting called "Primary Graphics Adapter" i belive this should be set to AGP if you want that to be ure primary monitor :) At loeast this is how it works on my MSI K8T Neo
