I have a Win 98 SE machine that currently utilizes 4 PCI video cards. The cards initialize properly and I can extend the Windows Desktop to these other monitors. The problem is that at many times, I need to display the same image on all the screens simultaneously. This seems to be a feature that is not supported under Win 98. I cannot use a standard VGA multiplier box because the cards are using a digital signal to drive LCD panels, therefore, I must use all 4 video cards. Is there a software package that meets my needs or is there something I can do to resolve this issue? Any help would be appreciated.

4 Screens and 4 video cards, jeez I wish this was my problem ;)

All kidding aside, I was able to find out IBM Canada (so probably the USA too) has a multi-head video card that lets you switch between the modes as you described, I even saw a picture or a system setup with 3 LCD Panels.

However, the links to the How to order, overview, spec sheet, and brochure were ALL DOWN (so much for the self-appointed king of web based solutions huh?). Anyway, you should call IBM directly. I wouldn't waste any time with the local IBM dealer or store. Call their direct line (Im sure you can find it yourself on the web for whatever country you live in). This looks like some pretty special order stuff, and most IBM dealers I've seen can barely spell APTIVA let alone deal with your problem.

Good luck.
