    Monitor Model:- Philips 170C6

    RC410M mobo with on board graphics card

    Monitor power on (It works on other computers)

    No bleeping sounds

    All connections checked OK

    I am trying to find out if there is a slot to installanother graphics card and disable the on board one.

    Thanks for trying. I hope you can be of assistance.

    I've cleaned and reinstalled both "installd memory" sticks. Is that what you meant. I'm not clear about the reference to the CPU.

  • Alex Boyack Oct 16, 2008

    I need to know what is compatable and How to identify the AGP video card slot. (If I have one)

  • Alex Boyack Oct 16, 2008

    Thanks for all your help. I learned a lot.

    New video adaptor seems to be the next step. I'll give it a try.

How to add second monitor on ECS RS482-M

Doesn't work that way Max.

You can use EITHER the OnBoard Graphics,
the Add-On Card graphics. (Graphics card)

BIOS will NOT support both at the same time.

If you wish to use dual monitors, get an AGP card that has more than one graphics port on it.

For example, although I'm using a graphics card based on the PCI Express technology, and not AGP technology; my card has a VGA port, DVI port, and HDMI port.

1) VGA Connector;

2) DVI;

3) HDMI;

I use the VGA port, and the DVI port.

RCA EN-V L26HD31, (26 inch HDTV) to the VGA port.
HP 2009M 20 inch Widescreen monitor to the DVI port.

Had to install drivers for HP 2009M.

Let's say I had two DVI ports on the graphics card.
(ATI Radeon HD5450 is the graphics card I have)

But I have a monitor with a VGA cable, and a monitor with a DVI cable.
I would (And have) use a VGA to DVI Adapter.
One example,

Note that the DVI is Male, and the VGA is Female.
The graphics card DVI connector is Female.
The VGA Cable connector is Male.

So.............what is the manufacturer name, and model number of the graphics card; plus what type of monitors are you trying to use?
That is, what type of monitor cables do they have?

Know this;
My HDTV I'm using as a monitor is Digital. However I'm using a VGA cable on it. Best quality would be achieved if I got off my lazy rear, and attached a DVI Cable to it. It uses both.

VGA is Analog. A computer however puts out a digital video signal.
The computer has to convert the digital video signal to an Analog one. This slows the video signal down, and the quality is not as good.

Best to use a digital monitor. (Or a digital monitor WITH a digital cable. DVI Cable. Such as I need to do)

You are also using a PCI Express graphics card, NOT an AGP graphics card.

I'm wrong? OK.

In the meantime turn the computer off, unplug from power, and yank that AGP card out of the slot you put it in.

Tell me what expansion slot on the motherboard you put it in.

The Orange expansion slot on the motherboard, is a PCI-Express x16 slot. Uses a PCI Express graphics card -> ONLY

The white expansions slots are PCI.
Can use a PCI graphics card. CANNOT use an AGP graphics card.

Hi grandkid broke where monitor plugs in can I get another card and plug in as a replacement

Yes you can replace the graphics card. This maybe an opportunity to get a better graphics card.
Installing a new graphics card will require installing the graphics card driver that will be supplied with the graphics card.

Will a dell dimension 2100 support dual monitors

Yes it will but that will also depend on your graphics card to a degree.
To do it properly you need to install a new graphics card and disable the on-board graphics card from the bios.

Your new card should support std VGA as well as DVI

DVI is also capable of being hooked up to many large screen tvs

I added a 256MB Graphics card but the monitor is not working. What should I do? Please help.

First time users get confused with this step. You should now connect your monitor to the graphics card, but not to the VGA that comes with your motherboard. After you insert the graphics card in the motherboard, use the screw to fasten it. Now in the graphics card, you'll have VGA, HDMI and another slot. So just connect one of them to your monitor.

Have abit - kn8 put 2 gig memm in powered up no picture think I have wrong video card do you know proper one

Hey there,

As per ur question, this problem occures due to following reason:

1. When ur data cable of ur monitor is bad : Try another data cable this causes only to blink LED of ur monitor which not allows any graphics to display.

2. Your RAM can also be responsible for this problem: If your RAM goes Bad then it doesnot allow any graphics file to load and thus causing not to display anything on ur monitor screen as well as ur system keep restart at POST (Power On Self Test) Operation (When VRAM driver is not loaded.

and the last reason is:

3. Your system is not able to recognise your Graphics card due to Either IRQ inteferance or ur graphics card hardware problem (caused due to bad of VRAM installed on ur graphics card): Remove ur graphics card from expansion slot (PCI-E/AGP)and then plug monitor data cable to normal serial port available in the motherboard (Resides back side of ur system).


Gimme ur acknowledge by rating me.
