Should be a setting in your BIOS somewhere. Look for Shared Memory or
Video Memory. Bump it to at least 512K.
Mind you, I'm taking a wild guess here; I have no idea if nvidia and
your chipset use shared memory.
Shared memory is when the video card uses a chunk of your on-board ram
for video. It's slower but cheaper. Maybe the default setting only
allows 1 output to be active at a time?
