I just set up a new machine, and windows is detecting 2 video cards.

Radeon 9800 Pro
Radeon 9800 Pro - Secondary
I only have one card installed.
Also, it's detecting 2 monitors, when I only have 1 installed.

Is this normal? There's not 2 set in the ATI control panel.

Also, my desktop, I have it set to a black backgound. It isnt 'black' but more of a dark, green tinted grey, until I open a window, like say display properties. When I do this, the color returns to normal. It's annoying to say the least. I've tried reinstalling both vid card drivers and monitor drivers. the monitor driver fixed it, until I watched a dvd movie on it, now it does the same thing.

My system is:
p4 3.0 ghz
1 Gig Corsair XMS Twin 3200 ram
Sapphire ATI Radeon 9800 Pro 256 mb video
Asus P4C800-E Deluxe Mobo
SB Audigy 2 Platinum EX Sound
2 WD 120 7,200 RPM hard drives
1 WD 36 gig Raptor SATA boot drive
Latest Asus Bios

Go into device manager and uninstall both monitors and both video cards. Reboot and load the drivers when prompted, and it should settle down and only have one of each. :)
