If you have been fiddling around with the vga cord, you might have bent one of the pins, or problably dislodged the vga card. Try taking it off and back on. Sometimes is as simple as that.

    There must be an option in BIOS to enable/disable the onboard vga.

    Once disabled, boot in safe mode and uninstall the gforce software. Reboot and wait for it to recognize the new hardware. Cancel the automatic instalation, and use the driver cd that came with the gforce.

I have a HP 1940 19" LCD monitor, which is not being detected by windows 7. monitor works just fine, but not showing any identifications in device manager.

It is not detected because the driver for that monitor is not installed for windows 7. Go to HP web site and get the driver for your monitor. Your graphic card will dictate the resolution for the monitor. The monitor will only tried to project the image within its capability.

Change the resolution on my Samsung B2030 LCD Monitor

1600X900 is a higher resolution than that of 1280X1024. Therefore 1600X900 is a better resolution. If you would like to run at the lower resolution simply right click your desktop screen and click properties. Then on the settings tab use the slider bar to adjust the resolution. Lower to the left and higher to the right. If the desired resolution is unavailable then you could try downloading and installing the latest drivers for your graphics card installed in your computer.

Your card will either be AMD/ATI Radeon or Nvidia. You will need the model number of the graphics card, the latest drivers may increase resolution support for your card.

Also look on the bottom right hand side of your screen for an Nvidia Control Panel logo in green. Right click it and select the option to "change screen resolution" This may provide you with additional resolution options.

Take care!

I have an about 2 year old M9047C HP PC. The

Really there is no way to check a video card for problems unless 1.) You have another PC that will support the same connections (PCI-E, PCI, AGP, etc) as the video card you have. 2.) The display still works to where you can run some software that will test the card for problems.

According to HP's website, I looked up your PC, you may have a graphics card installed in the PCI-Express X16 slot. If so, and your motherboard still has the Intel graphics built in, you can remove your video card.

You stated that your motherboard has another video port and you tried using it but no go. This is because HP has stated that if you have a card installed as well as on-board graphics (this means there are two video ports on the back of PC not including HDMI) then they can not work at the same time. So, try removing the graphics card installed in the expansion slot and use the one attached or built on to the motherboard.

Still, if all else fails and that does not work, graphics cards can be replaced with your type from $80-$400 dollars. Just depends if you want a mfr. replacement or boosted performance!

If you do get the built-in graphics to work, then your know it was your video card most likely. They are known to go out quite easily in some cases. PCs and PC components are rated to last a certain amount of hours before that fail, sometimes you surpass this time greatly and sometimes they fail short of this. It happens, I have gone through at least 3 graphics cards in the past 4 years because I am cosntantly puching them to max hahaha!!!

Hope that helps and happy computing. Let me know if you have any further questions.

Monitor problem......

e you connected the monitor to the correct socket this needs to be checked if you have onboard video and a graphics card also.
What you can try is remove the monitor cable from the processing unit and than check what you see on the monitor, you should be able to see the self test screen, If you don't see that than the monitor has gone bad. Monitor is normally under a 3-5 yrs warranty so just check that out with your vendor. If you see the self test than you need to reseat the graphics card if there is any. If there is no graphics card than it could be the onboard video that has gone bad. You can chk that by either using a known good motherboard or if you have a graphics card than you can use that.
If graphics card is installed and it is not working even after reseating than try using the onboard video. That should work
Hope this elaborate solution helps.

New wide screen monitor incompatibility issues with older comp

The two cards(Gforce Nvidia card) might not be compatible for your motherboard because they're for heavy graphics like playing games, and *********** board is old that you;ve mentioned. including the message memory range unavailable. Try using your old card with the new monitor.

Flashing Green Light on mx705 monitor

If the HP has onboard video but you have an add-on video card, remove the add-on and connect the monitor to the onboard vid. If it works you have a bad add-on video card. If it doesn't or you are already running on on-board video hook the mx705 up to a compatible HP. The older PB may be TOO old to handle it or not hve the correct drivers.

Can't see screen to install diver for HP Compaq WF 1907

My friend just purchase this monitor yesterday. When she plugged it in to the back of the tower she received the same prompt u have mentioned. I was able to repair it because she simply did not realize that I had installed a new graphics card into her pc a few months ago. When u do this, you have to hook your monitor into the area where the new graphics card was installed. You can not plug your monitor into the same onboard card that u have previously plugged your monitor into.
Let me know, if by chance, u did install a new graphics card.
Hope this was helpful :)
