I have a Quadro FX 1400 in my PCI Express slot. I have been running two monitors using DVI. I wanted to add two more monitors so I purchased a PCI GeForce FX 5500 and installed it in an empty PCI slot.

They don't seem to be compatible. I keep getting a "blue screen of death" caused by the adaptor driver.

Should I give up? Does anyone have any ideas?

Thanks

Dell Precision 370, P4 3GHz , XP SP2, 1GB, Dell 1905FP, PCIe NVidia Quadro FX 1400 using DVI connection to monitors. I am trying to add two more 1905FP monitors. When I install the GeForce FX 5500 PCI with drivers I get BSOD. The 5500 uses VGA connections. I don't know what else might be pertinent.

I believe that I have solved the problem by following instructions. I pulled the GF5500 out, then uninstalled the nVidia drivers. After a reboot, I installed 77.72. The Q1400performed as advertised. Next I shut the system down, installed the 5500, then started the system. So far it is fireing on all four. I don't get the 3-D volume rendering on the GF5500 displays but that is ok. I just needed the extra screen real estate for semi-static display.
