Windows 7 experts - a video card question?

Asked by llewis (1452 points ) September 6th, 2010

I have two ATI cards – a 4650 and a FireMV2250 – on a Windows 7 system. I need the 4650 (pcie x16) to be my primary card, but whenever I install the 2250 (pcie x1) it becomes primary. I can set the monitor on the 4650 to be my main monitor, but I have to do that each session, which means the projectors attached to the 2250 MUST be on in order to log in to the computer – a real problem. The hardware is set correctly – the switch to the 2250 happens during Windows startup. Can anyone help? (Yes, if you saw my question a couple of weeks ago, I’m still fighting with this silly thing.)

Have you tried swapping your gpu’s into opposing pcie slots on your motherboard?

Your Bios maybe detecting the 2250 as primary and win7 is just playing along.
