Dual video cards - Windows Networking

I have used two G-Force 32 meg cards for some time (One AGP and one PCI) but always the primary ie first to display was the PCI one. Not a problem really until now that I have u'graded the AGP to a G-Force 4 128mb card. All sorts of crazy conflicts occur and there is no way I can achieve the display config I want (Two monitors for programs and a TV screen for viewing edited footage when editing video) MB is a Biostar P4TDK with a P4 1.7 Gb processor. Have checked board bios but can't see any thing ...

    I have used two G-Force 32 meg cards for some time (One
    AGP and one PCI) but always the primary ie first to
    display was the PCI one. Not a problem really until now
    that I have u'graded the AGP to a G-Force 4 128mb card.
    All sorts of crazy conflicts occur and there is no way I
    can achieve the display config I want (Two monitors for
    programs and a TV screen for viewing edited footage when
    editing video) MB is a Biostar P4TDK with a P4 1.7 Gb
    processor.
    Have checked board bios but can't see any thing related.
    Any ideas, thanks.

    In the bios you should find a setting that says "init
    display first" under integrated peripherals. by default
    this setting is pci so that if there is a problem you can
    revert to an older failsafe card (esp. after clearing the
    bios). Normally this is not a problem as there is
    normally just one or the other in there. However if there
    is a pci card in as well as an AGP card it will
    initialized the PCI card first, making it the primary.
    When windows gets everything handed to it from the BIOS it
    will maintain the primary status of the PCI card. Once
    you change that setting it should be fine.
