Thread: G4 AGP Dual Monitors?
11-14-2004, 02:29 PM #1mateo107GuestG4 AGP Dual Monitors?
I've got a G4 400MHz with the AGP Video Card. Can I take the PCI Video Card from my B&W (Rev 1- cruddy bad IDE channel version) and put it into one of the slots on the G4 PowerMac and use it for Dual Displays? Also, I've never done this on a mac, so how do I "extend" the desktop in this fashion?

I don't know if your B/W card will work in your G4 (seems like it would), but you can have dual displays with agp and pci mix. I'm using a dual display on a Quicksilver 733.
Once you connect the monitor to the card go to
System Preferences/Monitor/Arrangement to set
- which monitor is the startup monitor
- which side of the startup monitor (left or right) is the second montor
- positioning of the second monitor (higher or lower) in relation to the startup monitor

thanks very much! my only concern was that on the original B&W the video PCI card was "different" than the other three... and on this one, I don't know if it makes any different
