Default Re: Geforce FX5200 TwinView help!

I'm beginning to think more and more that perhaps my FX 5200 card is somehow "crippled" (or maybe the driver is broken).

Searching the net, I found other lines from log files like this:

(--) NVIDIA(0): Found 2 CRTCs on board
(II) NVIDIA(0): Supported display device(s): CRT-0, CRT-1, DFP-0, TV-0
(II) NVIDIA(0): Boot display device(s): CRT-0
(II) NVIDIA(0): NVIDIA GPU detected as: GeForce Go 6600 GT

and even a log file from an FX 5200 in this forum post that clearly shows two CRT entries!

(--) NVIDIA(0): Found 2 CRTCs on board
(II) NVIDIA(0): Supported display device(s): CRT-0, CRT-1, DFP-0, TV-0
(II) NVIDIA(0): Boot display device(s): CRT-0, DFP-0
(II) NVIDIA(0): NVIDIA GPU detected as: GeForce FX 5200
(II) NVIDIA(0): Chip Architecture: 0x30
(II) NVIDIA(0): Chip Implementation: 0x34
(II) NVIDIA(0): Chip Revision: 0xb1
(--) NVIDIA(0): VideoBIOS: 04.34.20.56.01

Notice how it shows both CRT-0 and CRT-1... but in my case, it only shows a single CRT-0 entry...


Can anybody from Nvidia confirm what is going on? Am I screwed because I have a "rev 0xa2" chip and BIOS 04.34.20.18.00?
