Go into your video cards advanced settings-- right click anywhere on an empty spot of the desktop- select properties-select the settings tab at the top--when the new window opens, look for another tab at the top with your video card model number on it and select. now that your into your video cards settings, look for a setting to "enable multiple displays" after you enable it, close all windows, restart the computer and make sure both monitors are powered on.

Trouble with install second video card HD 5450 to emachines t6532


Unclear of your statement. (More like run-on sentence)

Problem heading statement reads,
"trouble with install second video card HD5450 TO eMachines T6532"

Need clarification

The eMachines T6532 Desktop PC uses an MSI MS-7207 motherboard.
Also known as the MSI K8NGM2-L,

http://www.msi.com/product/mb/K8NGM2-FID--IL--L.html

(Click on photo for a better image)


Has one long white PCI Express x16 slot. (Expansion Slot)
Only uses one graphics card at a time, will Not use two.

[Graphics card / Video card. Same/same]

Therefore I surmise you are not referring to adding a Second graphics card, but are referring to;

A) This is the second time you have added a graphics card.

Or,

B) This is the second ATI Radeon HD5450 graphics card.
Had one before. Removed it, and are using a new one.

Or,

C) This is the second time you have added a graphics card.
It is not an ATI Radeon HD5450 like the old one is.

Know this;
1) You can ONLY use the OnBoard (Integrated) graphics,
OR the graphics card.
You CANNOT use both.

When using a graphics card the monitor is plugged into it.
You cannot plug into the onboard graphics of the motherboard, with it installed in the computer.

Said differently;
With the graphics card physically installed in the computer, you cannot just unplug the monitor from the graphics card; and plug it into the OnBoard graphics of the motherboard.

[Also; Computer on, you CANNOT unplug a monitor, and plug it back in.
This = NO ]


2) Driver: Small piece of software that allows the Operating System to communicate with a device.

The device is the graphics card.
The version of Windows operating system was not stated.

Did you install the software from the Installation Disk? (CD/DVD)
Has the drivers on it, and the user interface software.
User interface software for an ATI graphics card, is Catalyst Control Center.

(Just to note; I'm using a Powercolor Radeon HD5450 graphics card, right now.
I'm using dual monitors.

HP 2009M - 20 inch widescreen LCD monitor, and an RCA L26HD31 HDTV as the main monitor. (26 inch HDTV)
They work GREAT! ]

(It is an ATI Radeon HD5450 graphics card just like yours, IF yours has 1GB of graphics memory.

Doesn't matter what graphics card manufacturer, makes that HD5450, it is still an ATI (AMD) design.

Powercolor, VisionTek, Sapphire, Diamond Multimedia, Mickey Mouse, or Goofy. It is still an ATI graphics card )

The ATI Radeon HD5450 graphics card, has to have a MINIMUM power requirement of 350 Watts.
Does your power supply have 350 Watts or more?

If it is the original power supply, the answer is NO.

Back then power supply manufacturers were 'fudging' the true maximum rated wattage.
Why?

Sold more power supplies.

Power supply rated at 250 Watts?
Nope.
More like 60 to 70 percent of that.

Divide 250 by 10.
= 25.
Take that times 6. = 150 Watts (60 percent)
Times 7 = 175 Watts (70 percent)

Would like your opening statements clarified.
Post back in a Comment.

My Acer aspire ax1700 PC dsektop wont work and here are the steps I took: First one day it wouldn't power up - The power led would blink once the fan (power supply) would come on for a split second and...


Hi, I had the same inital problem as you, except I didn't put a new video card as I was please with the Onboard card performance that even has an HDMI port. Not sure if your problem is solved already, but in my working process, I first suspected the Power Supply, and I had everything out of the case but the Mother Board. When I tried to fire it up I was always getting "No signal" on the screen, not even a blink from the BIOS. I then put everything back in place, then after the HD started spinning of and Windows booting, the screen started coming on. I felt it was like if I needed Windows to have a clean booth to replace the video drivers and switch to the InBoard card. Hoping this of any help.

Computer wont boot Evo d510


Choose within this options with regards to your monitor: 1. You could replace your monitor with a new one. 2. Or you could send someone or send it to a technician to repair your monitor.
Boot Up Problem: 1. Try checking the Power Supply Unit (PSU) if it give out 12Voltz. If not you could replace it with new PSU. 2. Check the motherboard if there are some blown out Capacitors. If there is, send it to a technician to replace it. If none, replace your Processor. That is the defective. That causes the boot up problem.
On boot up screen. Of course it will not show a boot up screen because there is a problem on your monitor. And so, there is also a problem on your motherboard (Processor or Capacitor).
Hope this might help. Thanks.

  1. If the system has integrated video with a DVI expansion card, you can use two monitors.
  2. If the system has a PCI-E dual head video card (2 video connections on the video expansion card) then you can use 2 monitors.
  3. If the system has a single head PCI-E video card (ATI HD2400) with a single DVI port, then that card disables the on-board VGA port.
So first you have to find out what the hardware configuration actually is for the Video Card. Then we can look at the monitors and how they are connected.
Post back with details on the video card and the monitors you are trying to connect if you need further information.

I have a similar problem with the GeForce 7300 LE video card


Be sure that your graphics card are compatible with your computer. Most household computers are Dell Dimension 2400's or other items in the Dell Dimension 2000 line. Also make sure that the graphics card is compatible with your operating system. Try Ati Radeon there are a very popular brand that work with almost any computer. A good low-end graphics card is the Ait VisionTek card.

No video


HI,
You can go into the BIOS , under onboard devices. Change the primary video controller to PCI.
refer to the following screen
http://supportapj.dell.com/support/edocs/systems/dim4700/sm/syssetup.htm#wp1052347

If the cards are not detected on the board. Then the problem could be of the PCIe slot .

Monitor on HP Pavillion a656x---blew up the power supply--had an extra and installed it--when machine was turned back on--monitor displays "VIDEO CABLE CONNECTED?---what am I going to do----help!!!---


First thing I would do is try the monitor on another system to see if it's in the monitor or computer. Next would be to fire it up and see if you hear a beep from the motherboard. Most consumer pc's will come with a small speaker that sounds on startup. If you don't hear this beep it could be indicitave of a fried motherboard.

But it sounds to me like your video card or onboard video was messed up when the power supply conked out. If it's onboard video you may be able to switch to a video card. If it's a video card you may need to replace it.

Also check to make sure there are no loose wires, that your video card is seated firmly, and that your connectors are all snug. If none of this works then you're most likely looking at a motherboard replacement.
