Re: wrong video card in my recently purchased computer.

Hi Chip,
I have windows configured in the proper settings for XP according to tot the 
helpful hints on the Jfwlite home page. I don't know how to disable one of 
the monitors on my video card. I'll look at device manager and see what I 
see. I will let you know what happens on this one. Thanks for your help.
Jim
