Sapphire Radeon X300SE 1card but listing 2

  Sparkly 14:32 05 Sep 10

Hi after wiping,reinstalling XP onto a larger SATA H/D i have noticed in device manager under Display Adapters that there are two graphics card listed.
Sapphire Radeon X300SE
Location PCI bus1 device0 funtion0

Sapphire Radeon X300SE Secondary
Location PCI bus1 device0 funtion1
I only have the one card installed Sapphire Radeon X300SE
Should there be two listed? if not is it safe to remove one i.e (Secondary) reason for asking about it is that sometimes when i leave the PC after doing some work when i return and move the mouse to wake it back into life the screen is black and no mouse/keyboard activity and have to hold the power button in to shut it down after a restart all works well again.
XP Home SP3

Because it can run 2 monitors at the same time ....

Hi Ashrich
Only thing is the card has only the one VGA connection on it?

Has it got anything else , TV out perhaps ? if so that would account for it .

They use the same chip for two monitors, software picks this up

I have a Sapphire Radeon X300 SE card, two entries in device manager the same as yours, one entry and a secondary entry, had it for 5 years now in this pc, no problems.
