    something else you can try is to look up your motherboard and check and make sure there's not a jumper you need to set for a secondary video card!! what kind of pc is it?

    try and clear the cmos, and then turn it back on. here is a picture of the board, you should be able to find the jumpershttp://support.gateway.com/s/MOTHERBD/FI...

SOURCE: T6420 bad on board video red is out Does it make sence to put a new video board in this machine

If you want to continue using the machine it does. If not time to get a new one.

SOURCE: No Video Signal

If you can't use the onboard video and it does POST or the PCI-E video card does show anything, most likely the motherboard is toasted. Apparenty gateway uses real poor quality power supplie and motherboards.

I have the same system, it powers on, but nothing. All I can assume is that the motherboard is bad.

SOURCE: Bad video board? Trying to figure out is card is bad or if it's drivers.

I agree, it does sound like it is on its last leg. Keep the settings on low and run it til it dies!

SOURCE: no video output. The monitor definitely works

This can be two things. One-Bad video card or Two the most common is bad ram modules. Try pulling one out at a time and testing by powering on. Thank you

Dell ultrasharp 1907fp bad contrast


I have seen a few of these monitors that when the display is dark in certan area's this usually indicates that one of the CCFL lamps has gone bad or there is a problem with the Analog/Digital Board, you can find the boards on ebay, but be VERY Certain that the board you order is the same that you take out of the monitor, as there are a lot of monitors that use the same simular boards but they are all different.

Plugged in my emachine LE1938 to my dell without the DVI cable, screen displays 'no signal'. Shouldn't the monitor work without the DVI cable?


The DVI cable transports the display signal from the video card to the monitor.

I think what Ron is asking is if you used a different cable to connect the monitor to the computer. (I'm assuming you used an old 15 pin monitor cable or whatever those old cables were?)

Without getting into your BIOS:

So on your computer, you probably have an onboard video card (a video card built into the motherboard itself), and a dedicated video card (probably where you're seeing the DVI out).

It may be possible that you have the on board video card (with the traditional connection) disabled, when the dedicated video card is plugged in.

This isn't rocket science, so don't worry. Phillips head screwdriver is all you need.

Pull the side panel off your computer (assuming it's a tower... if not, it's the top panel). Once you have it off, you'll see that video card plugged into a slot on the motherboard, with 1 phillips head screw holding it in place (inside, near the back, where the DVI port is).

Pull the screw, and the video card should come out. From there, the BIOS should recognize your card is missing, and thus revert to using the onboard video card.

The yellow light comes on inside but the computer won't come on neither does it beep?


First remove any power cables and batteries(if laptop) from your system and hold down the power button for 15 seconds.

Plug the power cable back in & attempt to boot.
If this does not solve your problem then you will need to remove all non-essentials from your system.

If laptop, this simply consist of battery, ram, optical drive & any other removable bays or devices. Unplug all cables except the power cable & attempt to boot.

If desktop, you will need to remove any cables plugged into your computer except keyboard, mouse, power, video, sound, & network cable. Open the case & remove any PCI cards, except video cards, unless you have on-board video, unplug the data & power cables going to the optical & hard drives. Now attempt to boot. If you have no luck you can remove your RAM sticks & try again. If you get an error beep warning you about no ram then you might have a bad ram stick. If none of the above works then you may have a bad power supply or motherboard. Power supplies are pretty easy to test with tester or use a spare.

Asus p7h55-m black screen when i installed video card.. then i thought my video card is not functioning.. i get it and use on board vga.. its the same problem.. black screen, keyboard no light.. no si


Have you tried removing the new video card? Try that first.
The fact that your keyboard doesn't light most likely means that either your power supply is being pulled down by the video card or is now gone. Was your power supply rated high enough wattage for your computer with the new video card? If the video card was higher-end then it's possible that it killed the supply.
It could also be the motherboard that's gone. Static discharge when putting the video card in, or a bad video card can destroy a motherboard.

How do I update my video card driver?


First of all you need to know what video card you have. If you have Windows and I assume you do go to Start > Control Panel (switch to classic view) > System click on Device Manager and in the list find 'Display Adapter'. The name of the driver appears. Make a note of it. Go directly to the website of your driver's manufacturer. Follow the instructions to download and install the right driver. Restart your computer to let it take effect.

Warning: this is the manual way to update. If you are not a tech guy, attempting to change video drivers could make your computer inoperable or cause severe problems. As a result, you can rely on a drive detective software http://www.anysoftwaretools.com/driver-detective.html to help fix the driver issue automatically & accurately.

This way also saves you time & energy.

Everytime i start up computer a sigal appears saying "no video input"


I'm assuming after a few minutes, it does get a signal from your computer and all works? It does take about 30s +/- 90s for a computer to generate an output video signal so if your monitor comes on first, before the computer can send a video signal, then you'll see that message. You should see the same message if you shut down your PC and leave the monitor on.

Monitor screen lights up for only a second then gives "No Signal Input" error message. I've rebooted both the computer and unplugged the monitor to start to no avail


Have you tried plugging the monitor to a different computer? This will tell you if the monitor is bad if it works correctly in another computer then most likely your video card has gone bad and needs to be replaced.

Why the monitor says "no


because it doesn't receives any signal from the pc - check the video cable. If the cable is correctly plugged in at both ends then the pc is defective - test it starting with the video card.

My E771 monitor colors suddenly shifted with


Possibilities:
1. video-card gone bad;
2. video-cable gone bad;
3. video-cable not tightly-connected to CRT;
4. video-cable not tightly-connected to video-card;
5. "red" gun inside CRT gone bad.

Disconnect the video-cable from the computer, and try again to adjust the "red". If red-free, then it's time to responsibly recycle the CRT.

Reconnect & wiggle the video-cable, to see if that induces any "red" onto the CRT.

Connect the CRT to the VGA-output port on a notebook computer, to see if that video-card generates "red" as one of the primary colours.

Give the CRT a strong "whack" on the side, to see if "red" makes an appearance.
