    Trying to install Matrox G2+ QuadP-PL/7 DVI Video Card.
    I am installing this Quad DVI Video Card on a
    Windows XP pro system.
    I need the Video Card driver for Windows XP.

    I looked at www.matrox.com
    and could not find a Windows XP driver for
    Matrox G2+ QuadP-PL/7 DVI Video Card.

    Does the video card goes by another name?
    Thank You

    It took me a while to find it, but your card is a G200. (I have the same card.)
    The top of this page has a link to "How do I identify my Matrox Graphics Card?"

    http://matrox.com/mga/support/drivers/latest/home.cfm

    You need the driver for the G200 MMS card, driver 5.93.009, which is further down the page listed above.

    I downloaded the driver for the G200 MMS card, driver 5.93.009.
    Thank you for the help.

    I need cables for my Matrox G2+ QuadP-PL/7 DVI Video Card.
    The Matrox G2+ QuadP-PL/7 DVI Video Card
    supports four(4) VGA or DVI monitors.
    What VGA or DVI cables do I need to support four(4)
    monitors.

    Thank You

    Are the monitors VGA or DVI? (analog or digital)

    Are the monitors VGA or DVI? (analog or digital)

    I have two DVI LCD Flat monitors.
    I have two VGA monitors.

    Which type of monitor works best?
    Thank You

  8. Some are advocates of DVI, but others claim to see zero difference. Your Matrox is a high quality card, so your VGA will probalby be quite good.

    So, you have no cables for that card? Makes for a difficult decision with your monitors, as you can't run 2 VGA + 2 DVI at the same time.

    What cables do I need for Four(4) VGA Monitors?
    I can buy two more VGA Monitors.

    What cables do I need for Four(4) DVI Monitors?
    Maybe I will buy two more DVI monitors.

    Thank You

  10. You're going to have to buy them from Matrox directly, off of eBay, or some other retailer. They are specific for that card... designated LH59 or LH60, or something like that.

    You might want to confirm that your DVI LCDs are actually DVI-D (will only accept signal from digital video card). If they are in fact DVI-I, you can used a DVI-VGA adaptor for a VGA signal. Your DVI monitors might also be dual output, meaning with the proper cable they can be used with either VGA or DVI card... Many of Dell's monitors are like that.
