I got this emachines ET1331G-03W with a built in integrated video card (GeForce 6150SE). I added another video card (e-GeForece 6200 LE) in the hopes that I utilize both and have a dual monitor. But once the additional card was installed, windows 7 does not recognize the integrated video.

Is it possible to use both video cards and have a dual monitor setup? Is there a switch on the motherboard that I have to turn on or off to enable the integrated video card along with the new card.

You will have to go into the BIOS to find out. Check your system documentation to determine how to enter the BIOS at boot-up. From my experience, most BIOSes disable onboard video by default when you install a video card.

Awesome! Thanks again! – Jaime May 27 '10 at 23:08
I'm guessing you found out how to turn on both video cards. – Sarge May 27 '10 at 23:55
