Go to your bios and check if your bios allow that. Usually if you connect a card on the motherboard slot automatically the on board card becomes unavailable.
If your bios doesn't allow to make changes you can add another pci video card or connect some vga split signal to get the image on 3, 4, or more monitors with a single device.

Do your PC support the above hardware requirements?

You need to installed correct driver for your VIDEO CARD also, right now it may be using Microsoft generic video card driver.
You also need to set the PC video resolution to the native resolution of this monitor: 1024 x 768 @60Hz.

if your purchase just the monitor on 2/28/200, normally dell gives 3 years warranty for the monitor If purchased Separately.

OK.. try doing this call Dell.. 18004563355.. JUST give them the serial number of the monitor ONLY they'll check it out then if your lucky they'll send you a replacement.

Dell 1702FP 17" shows nothing after Radeon HD 2600 put in.


Is the card plugged into the (PCI/AGP) slot correctly? Did you disable the onboard video in the bios? Also be sure to check in windows device manager and check for the graphics card to appear there.

Viewsonic vp912b lcd display will not work.no DVI


Yes you can but there should be an option in the monitor settings for DVI... Maybe if you go into safe mode and attempt adjusting settings for the ati for the dvi output, from what I hear that monitor is nice with the DVI option would be aa shame to lose that.

Hi,

This is a problem with the video cards hardware or the driver itself depending on your card you should updaate your cards driver from the appropriate site,right click the desktop>properties>settings>advanced>ada... will then see the name and manufacturer of your graphic card
go to the appropriate website and download the latest driver,here are the three main graphic card manufacturers websites
1) nvidia.....http://www.nvidia.com/Download/index.asp...
2)a.t.i.....http://ati.amd.com/support/driver.html
3)intel...http://support.intel.com/
other things to check are
1.make sure your graphic card is securely fitted and if power is required to the card,then check the power connector is securly fitted and inserted
2.try changing your monitors lead from the v.g.a connector to the d.v.i connector at the back of the card,the v.g.a. is a blue connector and the d.v.i. is a white connector,and the d.v.i requires a d.v.i to v.g.a converter
3.where applicable install any monitor drivers however these are rarely required
4.run the direct x diagnostic utility,press start>run>type dxdiag >press enter,then go to the display tab and run the "test direct 3d" test
5.finally check all cables are securly fitted
if after these tests and tasks you still experience problems then change the graphics card and run the tests again,if you experience more problems then a new video/graphic card is required
any problems let me know
good luck .......

DVI went bust


Have you contacted Dell? I am sure the warranty is gone but they might try to help. You can take it to a T.V. shop and have them check it. Sometimes a repair cost more than a monitor though. Acer has the best monitor that I have seen. I put some to a test at Staples and Acer was the only one that could stay working at a high resolution. Strange because Acer is usually ****. Good luck. Sorry I could not give you a better answer. I hope that I put you on the right track though. Does that monitor have a VGA connection on it that you can use. Some have both. Maybe you can get an adapter for your video card. Most cards come with one.

Dell 17inch LCD Display - Blank


Hi, My name is Todd and I'm a customer advocate at Dell's corporate headquarters. My team helps customers via blogs, forums, and other tech sites online. You said the monitor is 2 years old. Do you have the original order number still? Depending on how you purchased the monitor it may have up to a 3 year manufacturer warranty and I may be able to replace it if it is within that warranty period. Please email me at Customer_Advocate@Dell.com if you can locate the order number and I'll be glad to see if its still under the manufacturer warranty. Include my first name (Todd) in the subject line of the email so it can quickly be routed through to me, and include the order or customer number if you have it. Thank you, Todd Customer Advocate Dell, Inc. http://direct2dell.com/one2one/archive/2006/11/19/3648.aspx
