    Ok, well I have been running a tri-monitor setup on XP for about 3 years.

    I just installed Vista, and it shut down one card, leaving me with only a dual monitor setup. I found the cards had to be by the same manufacturer, so I ran out and bought a PCI ATI x1300 to complement my PCIe ATI x850xt. Now, when I try to enable the third monitor, my computer gets really screwed up. Nothing displays on any screen for awhile, and something flashes sporadically, and sometimes ill see windows, sometimes I wont. Eventually (after like 5 minutes), windows comes back and tells me it stopped the r300 driver. I only have my 2 monitors working, and the third (x1300) stops working.

    I have the latest drivers for Vista. And the card works fine under XP.

    Please, if anyone can help, it would be MUCH appreciated!
