Question about ATI RADEON HD 2400 PRO Graphic Card

1 Answer

No video I bought a new graphics card, put it in and i get no input on my monitor. The installation guide said I might need more power to it. How do I do that. I have HP Pavilion a450n. I don't see where to put the cable in the power box to connect the graphics card.

    I also put a new video card in my computer recently. I purchased an ATI RADEON HD 2400 PRO with a universal PCI Bus Type. I believe my computer meets all of the system requirements. Anyhow, whenever I boot up my computer with the new video card, the monitor remains black. I uninstalled all of the drivers for my previous video card and followed the instruction/installation manual precisely. There was no space on the videocard to plug in an additional power supply, either, so I'm guessing the card I purchased doesn't require one. I really can not figure out what is causing my monitor to have no display (black screen, sometimes even stays in standby mode [orange light instead of green]).

What videocard did you buy? You cannot add external power to it. You may have to change the Power supply unit. Check the capacity of the supply. It is recommended to have at least 700 watts of power with the new video card theses days.

Do we need a new graphics card for a monifor that is going to sleep? The monitor (an HP that came with the computer) doe not work and wonder if a new card will correct the problem.


Hi there,

Your monitor does not have graphics origination hardware so much as input recognition of the video card in your computer tower.

Borrow a monitor from a friend and see if your computer displays normally on it. If it does, you need a new monitor. If it doesn't, your computer needs a new video card or has other motherboard issues.

It's just that simple.

Best Regards

When I connect the moniter to the graphic card geforce 6200 it will not show a display at all. connection to the computer using the regular connection it shows


On both the Graphics card and the monitor, the blue connector is a 15 pin DSub VGA video and the white connector is a DVI video.
With the monitor it should default to the 15pin DSub video input.
If you want to use the DVI video input you need to configure the monitor to use the DVI video input. DVI to DVI give the best picture quality.
If you want to go from 15pin DSub to DVI you need a converter cable.
Try conviguring the monitor for a DVI video input.

NO VIDIO ON MONITOR WHEN POWER UP


Hi...

When you power up and no video made sure that you monitor cord plug directly to your video card not on the motherboard.

Usually if you have new installed video card the on-board video was automatically disabled. So check your monitor cord and plug it to the new installed video card.

When the card is properly installed and the system properly configured, you should at least be getting the POST screen, since that is not driver dependent. And Windows knows to go to the default standard VGA driver when it can't find specific drivers for a card. So we're looking at a hardware issue, not software.

Here are the troubleshooting steps I would take. Some would seem obvious and you've probably already tried them, but I like to be complete:

Is the monitor switchable betwwen two inputs? Do you have it set to the correct input (i.e. VGA vs DVI)? hit the selection button on the front panel, just in case.

Is the card properly seated? Take it out and put it back in. Also, oddly enough, reseating RAM can fix a lot of problems, even seemingly unrelated ones.

Is there an on-board VGA connector? If so, switch over to that and see if you get picture. Then go into CMOS settings and look for a video setting that would make the add-in card the default display. Or simply disable the on-board VGA.

Check the pins on your monitor connection, make sure none are bent.

If none of these get you a picture, I would suggest a defective graphics card.

Installing radeon hd 2400 pro


Verify that your Power Supply meets the requirements of the video card. Some Video Cards require a 400 Watt Video card. In some cases its always good to go higher than that, depending on how many devices are in your computer.

How old is your power supply? Some power supply's over time will not produce the same amount of wattage when it was new.

Is it possible for you to try the video card on another computer? It could have arrived DOA. In which case you may need to return it.

Good Luck

The Monitor Does Not Open Using My New Video Card


That is clear indication that you have a bad graphics card. Try to look for a pencil eraser and use it to clean the gold pins on your graphics card. I hope this helps. If your card still doesn't work, its probably defective.

Motherboard graphics card not working, trying to install MicroStar G4MX420D nividia


Can you get into the BIOS setup? Usually, it will say "For Setup Press Fn" when you start booting up. When you get into the setup, look for a menu item that deals with "onboard video". Set it to disable. Then "Save and Exit" the BIOS. The new video board should allow you to view the screen, at a reduced resolution, until you load the new software.

Radeon X1650


Hi,

before doing anything.. What do you mean you get no blank monitor? Do you see anything at all? Do you see the POST running? Also, when you put in the AGP, did you plug your monitor into the new card? Or are you trying to boot from the old intergrated one?

You can change your graphics input in the BIOS from integrated to AGP (after putting in the new card). But, It should pick it up fine without changing it. And if it doesn't work after doing so, your motherboard may keep the settings, and then a deeper problem arises..

Tried To Install New Card, monitor not responding.


Tech is suggesting that you pressed too hard while switching back & forth & may have hurt the motherboard by bending it. This a common problem. I can only suggest that remove your old card & clean the PCI slot with canned air. Carefully reseat the old card pressing evenly downwards till the card is seated. Use a flashlight & check where the card connects to the slot. It should be level across the PCI slot. Do this while the power cord is unpluged from the PC. Plug the power back in & start the PC.
Some video cards require extra power. Your newer card may need a four pin power connector to run. Please check the instructions that came with the RADEON X1300.
