@sam028, I have an AMD 780G chipset motherboard with only one PCIe slot which has an HD4350. I turned on the ATI SurroundView in the BIOS, so that I can use 4 monitors for this configuration. If I add another PCI HD4xxx card, will the SurroundView still work(in other words, can I use 6 monitors)? Thanks,

I don't know, I think so, the SurroundView is "dedicated" to the first card, the other card is just another card...
But no warranty at all, you should ask on AMD Forums .

I was told that the internal graphic would be disabled when you have built in an external graphic card. My idea is that you might be able to enable the internal graphics in the BIOS additionally , but dont ask me if/how this would work ..

@PowerM : your motherboard seems to have two PCIe slots (I didn't found the documentation, but this thread where the guy seems to have 2 Nvidia 8800GT, but you might check this with your own eyes (with the help of a screwdriver). You have to check if there is really another slot, and if there is enough room to put another card. And you'll need external power supply.
For me you don't need the CrossFire link, as it's mainly used to use the power of two cards on one screen, but I'm using 2 dual NVidia cards (without SLI) for 3 screens, and I can't be 100% sure for ATI stuff, some more Google needed maybe...

I found out that I have 1 PCI x-1 Slot which is filled with my HD 3850 and one free PCI x16 slot which is free. Additional 2 PCI slots. I am quite sure now that I cannot insert 2 graphic cards. A technician from an internet retailer told me that he either recommends to use a workstation card ATI FireMV 2400 or another one with 6 slots. Both is >€350.
He says the best solution would be to change the board and to use 2 cheap cards then. OK, means I also had to pay this installlation as I can not replace the board.

Thanks a lot guys for your earlier input to this issue

on my DELL desktop it's either internal or a plug in card but not both hence the reason for a 2 heads plug in card.

If your board is AMD/ATI chipset, you might be able to enable ATI SurroundView in BIOS to get the on board (integrated) graphics to work together with the discrete graphics (a PCIex16 card) to drive 4 monitors. I tested AMD 740G and 780G chipsets board, both works on XP and Vista.

Windows jump monitors

I trade from my laptop, which is connected to 2 external monitors. 1 external monitor is connected via the laptop external VGA port, and the other is connected using a USB VGA adapter. I use the 2 external monitors for trading, and the laptop monitor for other stuff.

Whenever I close or open the laptop the system re-configures to enable/disable the laptop monitor. The problem is that when I open the laptop, some of my trading chart windows always get moved to the laptop monitor even though they were never there in the first place. When I click 'Identify Monitors', all the monitors are always in the order originally assigned. How do I get my NinjaTrader chart windows to stick to the original monitors I put them on?

The x,y coordinates should be saved in your NT workspace. You need to make sure NT is closed when you make any monitor changes (connect or disconnect).

Due to time constraints, please do not PM me if your question can be resolved or answered on the forum.

Need help?
1) Stop changing things. No new indicators, charts, or methods. Be consistent with what is in front of you first.
2) Start a journal and post to it daily with the trades you made to show your strengths and weaknesses.
3) Set goals for yourself to reach daily. Make them about how you trade, not how much money you make.
4) Accept responsibility for your actions. Stop looking elsewhere to explain away poor performance.
5) Where to start as a trader? Watch this webinar and read this thread for hundreds of questions and answers.

Thanks, it's annoying and not very practical, but that solution seems to work. But I realize this is not just an NT issue. Some of my other non-NT windows seem to jump around on the monitors as well. Is that normal? Is there anyway to prevent that, or any 3rd party software that can help control that?

There are two good multi-monitor apps. I use DisplayFusion, but I used to use UltraMon. I don't know if they do it, I don't use a laptop to trade so don't experience what you are going through.
