I don't understand what you are trying to say, but this is what I think you're saying. The onboard video card went bad and now you need to put in another one so that you can connect the monitor.

If that's true, you don't put another video card on the motherboard. You go out and purchase a Video Card that goes into one of the available PCI Slots on the back of the computer. It goes inside, but sticks out the back so you can connect the cable from the monitor to it.

No video at all? Make sure you have the connection of the video cable in good on both the computer and the monitor.

Try connecting another monitor and see if it works. If not, your video card in the computer needs to be replaced.

Try the monitor on another computer and see if it works. If not, the monitor is bad and needs to be replaced.

If you are switching from XP Pro. you will need to clear your register and all command and drive to . Set BIOS to boot from DVD/CD first then set the hard drive to boot second. Windows. Also if you have access to another computer ask microsoft for tech support.

Restart your computer
During the boot process you will see on the screen to press a certain key to enter setup usually the delete or F2 key

Press and hold that key during the boot up process to enter BIOS using the arrow keys load failsafe defaults or load optimized defaults press escape then press f10 to save to cmos to restart if this fails to fix the problem

During the boot process tap the f8 button three times this will boot into safe mode where the only things working will be your mouse and keyboard enabling you to attempt to repair your computer

When you boot up to the log in screen type in administrator as user to log in if you cant log in

Restart your computer during the boot up process you will see on the screen for a short amount of time press a certain key to enter set up press and hold that key during the boot up process to enter BIOS scroll down to set user password or supervisor password you can change or remove your password from there

if this fails to remove your password

The most common way that we know on how to reset or clear the BIOS password is to physically remove the power from the computer by disconnecting the power plug and then removing the Cmos battery for 30 minutes from the motherboard. Another way is to reset the clear CMOS jumper on the motherboard itself. Both of the 2 methods mentioned works because most motherboards use a battery to sustain the BIOS/CMOS settings for the motherboards PROM chip. So by cutting off cmos the battery power, the BIOS/CMOS settings will be erased.

click start control panel Open User Accounts in Control Panel. On the Users tab, click the name of the user whose password you want to change, and then click Reset Password. In New password and Confirm new password, type the new password, and then click OK. Notes You can change passwords only for local computer accounts, such as guest, administrator, or accounts you create for your computer. You cannot change your network logon password in User Accounts. To change your own password, press CTRL ALT DELETE and then click Change Password
if you are not the computer administrator and have not assigned a bios password during the boot up process you will see on the screen for a short amount of time press a certain key to enter set up Press and hold that key during the boot up process to enter BIOS scroll down to set user password or supervisor password you can change or remove your password from there also click start control panel user accounts on the users tab,click the name of the computer administrator you must have full control can change the password there

hope this helps you

Any available (Open) USB port.

(This solution applies to your other stated problem, that apparently deals with this computer also)

HOWEVER, there is a procedure that must be followed, when installing a printer for the first time, on that computer.

The software MUST be installed first, THEN the printer is attached to the computer, (Computer off), and after Windows is running, the printer is turned on.

If you attach the printer first, and THEN when Windows is running, load the software, you will get a driver conflict.

When a device, (Printer in this case), is attached to a computer for the first time, Windows will 'break it's neck' to find suitable drivers for the device.

If THE drivers are not there, Windows will match up one of it's thousands of generic drivers.

Windows: "Which drivers do I use. These or THESE?"

[ Driver: A small piece of software that allows the Operating System, to 'communicate with a device.
Windows XP and Windows 7 are two examples of an O/S ]

If this is what has transpired post back in a Comment.

It could also be that the USB port you are plugging into is bad.
Try a different one.

What is the manufacturer name, and model number of the printer?
How are you trying to install it?

no ...to get to bios ..even if it is an old model try to press f10 on start ..It is known that from all computer's manufacturers..the hp is the only one that uses this key instead of normal del key ..If you pay attention on start the key is indicated on screen ..
By the way ..If it has a bios password just open it up ..and remove the bios battery from the motherboard and will clear the cmos settings to factory defaults..
To reinstall it you will need a windows xp disk ..and make sure you set the boot order in bios to boot from the CD first ..and save using f10 key..
Pay attention on what you are doing cause it may be strange ...it is an old model and has nothing logical in it ..Good luck ..you;ll need it ..!
