is Integrated Intel Graphics and a PCIe Video card to power 3 monitors? Acer Aspire TC-875

daviceroydaviceroy Member Posts: 2 New User
The Integrated Graphics card was doing great handling 2 monitors.  So, in my eternal greediness for more Desktop space, I bought a PCI Video Card to install to have a 3rd monitor.  I've done this with other computers.  However, when I installed it on my Acer Aspire TC-875, the only video is being pushed via the installed card and neither display on the integrated card is working anymore.  Any possible solutions so I can get 3 monitors working?

    Aspire TC-875 ( don't know the sub-model number) should have two HDMI ports from on-board graphics. When a dedicated graphics card is inserted to the x16 slot, the on-board graphics will be disabled, that is why no outputs from the integrated graphics.

    If your dedicated graphics card has three output ports and the PSU provides enough wattage to the graphics card, you should be able to use three displays from the graphics card.

    Thank you.  I was hoping that I could use the onboard plus the video card.  That answers the question and I'll have to look into another solution.

    Most GPU cards have three or more ports on them, did yours only have one? :(
