Specs: windows xp, 2gb
so i got a gigabyte GA-8I865GME-775-RH board at a garage sale with a power supply and built a computer from spare parts around my house and the only two drivers missing are the VGA compatible video controller and a some sound controller im using a hard drive i pulled out of a different computer (dell dimension 3000). the gigabyte motherboard has a VGA socket built in but i have another video card with two monitors and a pci VGA card also i wanted to use the built in one and the video card so i can have three monitors but right now only one works. if i try two cards both of my monitors don't display anything. i went on gigabytes website but i dont think i got the right driver because device manager still shows its missing. any help?? thanks.

Multiple video controllers often don't work together. Adding a card may have disabled the on-board one. If an added card works adding a second may disable the first, or both.

Remove the video card(s) and just set up the on-board controller. Then add a card and see what happens.

It? What's it? If you have no video cards installed and are only using the on-board video controller then you either have the wrong drivers, you didn't install them correctly or the previous driver installation attempts have dumped too many files into your system and/or made incompatible registry changes.

Uninstall any display adapters from device manager, even the one you're using. Go to 'add or remove software' in control panel and uninstall any video software you've installed if it shows there. (Make sure the uninstalls are directly related to your previous installation attempts. You don't want to remove something you need.)

Reboot the computer. Make sure you have the correct drivers and know how to install them. Then do it.
