    The monitor is not working at all with the pc except for when I turn the computer on the only graphics I get is the Monitors Check pc connection and cable prompt. There is no other graphics displayed.. The monitor works when plugged into my laptop tho.

    Therefore I cannot know wether I have gotten in to the BIOS setup.

    It was all included in the motherboard and ceased working, I was advised that if I got a new card to hook the monitor up with that it should all work fine and by pass the one on the motherboard. I cannot revert back to the original as it doesn't work. The only card the pc had prior to this breakdown was a modem card. I think the only answer now is a new pc. Thank you for your help.

    It is the oncoard video connector that is not working that is why I am trying to install a new video card, So therefore I have no monitor to view the installation procedure on.

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.

    What were you using before you got the new card? Can you remove the new card and revert to what you were using prior? Let me know what happens.

    Are you saying that there IS an onboard video connector on the motherboard? If so, remove the new graphics card and hook the monitor to the onboard port. See if you can get something that way and we'll go from there.

    My apologies. It was the first thing you said. Must have been asleep.

    So you get the same message, "check pc cable and connection" with both the onboard and with the new card?

Try to uninstall/reinstall the video card and make sure that you're installing the software from the setup CD and also you can try updating the software of the video card if you still have the problem after uninstalling/reinstalling it..

I have a nividia 8900 ver 100 graphic catd i need a driver for this puppy

Hello the driver can be downloaded here:

By selecting the model, and your windows system.

Also try automatically find drivers for my NVIDIA products.

By installing a small bit of software, to identify the graphic card.

You just have to make sure, the driver fits your windows system 32 or 64 bit.

I suggest to use the automatic find function.

Good luck

Installed AGP fx5500 video card into my pc. Turn on pc and monitor Light next to turn on button Stays yellow and doesn't turn green. Is card garbage?

First eject the graphics card from motherboard and try to get display from on board display port. If display comes from it then there is problem in your graphics card or in card slot. And also try to use the card on any other pc because some time due to electric fluctuation setting have changed and it did not work on your motherboard So its better to connect it on any other motherboard or pc.
For any other help or to thank me you can also mail on my email

No executable program in video drivers folder

I have a TARGA TRAVELLER 1574 X2 LAPTOP which is about 2-3 years old. I was using it last week, everything was fine. I put it away, but when i came to use the laptop later on, the screen was completely blank. The power button was lit up and everything else was ok, but no power was going into the monitor. Ive tried to see if it had gone into sleep mode, but to no avail. Ive even tried to reboot with a WINDOWS XP disk but nothing. Do you have a solution to my problem?

My monitor freezes

since you have laready checked the videocard to be working on your friends pc, the problem may be on your motherboard.

try to do some tweaking on the BIOS and if that will not help, check your directX and softwares installed on your pc. check also if your pc is in its most optimal settings.
