Dual video cards

    I would like to use two video cards. One for the computer monitor and
    another for a projector. The reason is that I want to calibrate the
    projector and use a separate profile.

    I have installed two nvidia cards, on in a PCIE slot and one in a PCI slot.
    They installed correctly and both show up in the device manager as 8400GS

    I am using a dual boot computer with XP and Vista. All, up to date.

    Are both using the same driver, or are they each using a copy of the same

    I can get the projector to show a picture only if it is designated as an
    extension of the desktop. I cannot get it to show the same picture as the
    desktop. I get a blank screen. It seems that I cannot designate what I need
    through the control panel.

    With the configuration that I have, is there a way to accomplish what I
    would like to do?

    Fun with color profiles, here.





    I keep hearing about something like "video mirror mode doesn't work". I
    don't know if that is what the OP is attempting or not (or perhaps seeks
    to work around, by using the two video cards).

    "Fullscreen Video Mirror"
