What card models please
NV+NV should work with no trouble but the driver would have to be compatible with both cards
What is it ,an fx5200?
If so are you using 175.16?

Good guess, one of the cards I tried was an FX5200. I run all my machines with 4 monitors for work reasons. I guess the newer cards motherboards dont allow just any video card to be shared by the same computer.

so you were using 175.16?

It appears that all is ok now. It just took a few more boots (windoze....) and everything started working as it should have. No drivers needed to be loaded since I was using another PNY video card.

OK fine, But use the highest possible driver that's compatible with both cards mmmk.
Not the one that comes with XP...
