Question about Computers & Internet
I am working on an acerpower fh and the onboard video card has gone out. i installed geforce 8400 gs and can now get a screen which is the acer screen which has the options of going to setup or boot menu. no matter which one i choose it does nothing. it is just frozen on this screen. i haven't gotten in it to install drivers because of this. with the onboard video being bad i can't get into bios to disable the onboard video and tell it to use the new one. it is running windows xp sp3 and was running fine until the video went out. any suggestions on what the problem might be? also when the computer first turns on the lights on the keyboard come on but after the acer screen comes up i get nothing. not sure if this is just because it really hasn't booted all the way up. have tried several keyboards and it is the same for all of them. any help would be greatly appreciated. thanks so much in advance
There should be a jumper on the motherboard to turn off onboard video, what kind of computer is it? prebuilt: i.e. dell or hp or something along those lines or is it a custom built pc? if you tell me the pc model or mobo model i may be able to tell you which jumper it is :)

SOURCE: GeForce 8400 upgrade problem
I would try two things: One pull the GeF 8400 out and boot as you normally did, install the drivers for the 8400. Then reinsert the Vid Card (8400) and when it looks for driver viola... If that fails:
Second if you can get in at all try the old F8 key on the boot up...and see if you can get in using SAFE MODE...and install your drivers from that point. Assuming the second set fails update the video driver using device manager.
That's a great vid card...good luck..leave a rating please.

you are missing nothing actually the graphic card over rides the onboard graphics and you have to use the graphic cards output ,only one hardware at a time for pci devices

We can troubleshoot it and repair it. There is no doubt of that in my mind. But now that they admitted their fault, this is the time to make them fix your computer. If everyone would do the same thing the stealing of the customer's money will be decreased by a large measure. Again, if you want us to work on it, we are ready able and willing. But the truth must be told..... Thank you for your considering us and your choice to work with our service. My name is Constantin (arzconst is an internal nickname used with the Fixya.com).
