Video card issues

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.

SOURCE: Black screen with new PCI video card

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).

Does the DG31PR motherboard support Geforce 8400GS 512MB PCI-E?


Yes, but check your BIOS and make sure the PCI-E slot is enabled.

Also, when you say doesn't start, you mean just the screen? Right?

Just installed two new monitors. Have ge force 8400 gs card. Windows 7. I can see both screens, but they are acting as two single screens. mouse won't move from screen to screen.


It sounds like you have the monitors setup as mirrored monitors instead of an extended desktop.

When in the display properties of windows click the monitor you want to have as the extended desktop and you should see a check box for extend monitor to this screen.

You need to install the driver that came with the card. If you don't have it you can download it from the site. Also (for experienced users), check your BIOS setting to see if it has an option to select between the integrated graphics card your other one.

HP DV9500 screen blank, suspect graphics card gone. any way to check/test?


Can you try plugging some external monitor to a d-sub in the back and see if the picture is displayed properly on it?
Based on my experience with these issues, 90% of times it is caused by the malfunction in the laptop monitor and not the gfx card...

Kind regards,
Mark

GeForce, monitor displays incorrectly


Make sure you uninstalled all previous drivers first. Just to let you know the 8400 gs isnt a gaming graphics card but it is a step up from the absolutely terrible 7200 gs
