Re: gpu working not getting monitor picture

Is there another type of video output on the card, like S-Video? It could be trying to use the other output as the primary rather than the regular VGA. If this is the case, use nvidia's display utility to manage which output should be the primary.

I recently bought a brand new Wildcat Realizm 200 and I would like to flash the GPU BIOS to the latest version. How should I go about doing that?

the GPU doesn't have a BIOS. BIOS stands for Basic Input / Output System. It's what your computer hardware looks at right after the POST. (Power-On Self-Test). Flashing the BIOS can be risky, if there is a power outage while it's updating or doesn't completely update your motherboard will be useless. I highly do not recommend flashing the BIOS. What I would do is update the driver. Keep in mind that only certain graphics cards work on certain machines. Intel CPUs only work with Nvidia GPUs. and AMD CPUs only work with AMD cards. It's hard to pinpoint your problem because I'm not looking at the computer.

Hi Dave,

1. Have you ever tried testing your VTX HD5450 GPU to another system or try bringing it to the store where you purchased it.
2. After removing the VTX HD5450 GPU, did your Nvidia 8400GS worked? - If it works there might be a compatibility issue between your MOBO and HD5450 GPU if the card is good.
3. I think there is nothing to configure on your bios regarding Graphics setting because your Nvidia 8400GS worked without any problems.
4. Did you check the VGA/ DVI cable and power cable if it is plugged to the proper ports. There are times that even tough we are that good we miss something.

Hopefully this information helps.

Thank you for using FixYa.

After installing the ASUS EAH5450 my computer turns on and runs fine on my desktop monitor. However, I've hooked up a HDMI cable to my Sharp Aquos and the tv says it's receiving an incompatible...

The easiest thing to try is change the screen resolution before connecting via HDMI. The process is a little different depending on what operating system you're using.
For Windows Vista/Windows 7: 1. Right click on your desktop and select "Screen Resolution" 2. Slide the bar to change the resolution to either 1024x768 or 1280x1024. 3. Click apply.
For Windows XP: 1. Right click on your desktop and select "Properties" 2. Click on the tab to the far right that says "Settings" 3. Under Screen Resolution, slide the bar to change the resolution to either 1024x768 or 1280x1024. 4. Click apply.
Either of these resolutions should at least give you picture when you reconnect with HDMI. Once you get a picture, repeat these steps and gradually move the slider higher to get a better resolution picture. If you receive the incompatible signal message again, just wait 15 seconds and the previous setting will be restored.
If this doesn't work, you may also have to adjust the screen refresh rate. From the same window that has the screen resolution adjustment bar, click the link or button that says "Advanced." The second tab, "Monitor," has a drop-down menu to adjust the screen refresh rate. Depending on your HDTV, the most common setting for this could be 60 Hz, 70 Hz, or 120 Hz. If none of those values work for you, you should check the manual that came with your TV to check what the proper resolution and refresh rate should be for your computer connection.

My guess is that your system is getting too hot. That GPU outputs a bunch of heat and so does the rest of your system. You need to bring down those temperatures. Install as many fans as your chassis will allow. 120mm high RPM fans as exhausts say 2000RPM and slightly slower ones for the intake say 1200RPM.

Check the Nvidia website for the latest drivers, check everyday.
Use a program called Hardware Monitor to check the temperatures.
Also install MSI Afterburner, don't change the clock speeds.

Are you sure that the CPU Cooler is making proper contact with the CPU, check this by using the Temperature monitor software.
Update your version of Windows to the latest service pack and security updates.
Check that the PCI-Express cables are making good contact.

Take care!

$ this is a serious problem it is general that high end GPU s get hotter with the amount of graphic intensive work you do.
$look if the GPU's run cooler in windows vista or seven just for your experience
$look for some other cooling methods like moving it into a Air conditioned room or try installing a water cooling system for the GPU's you can get it online for a reasonable price

Update of ATI Radeon HD 2400 is causing problems - my two screen display keeps switching to single screen since the update of Nov. 13th, 2010.

Click the START MENU, click the CONTROL PANEL. Locate the APPEARANCES AND THEMES link. Click the DISPLAY tab or MONITOR Tab. In this option, a DROP BOX MENU will be available. Click the ATI RADEON HD 2400 PRO device. It may say something similar to MULTIPLE MONITORS. After doing so, you may configure the MONITORS as to giving them a position such as MONITOR #1 AND #2. You may do this by DOUBLE CLICKING the monitor example pictures above the drop box menu to verify which monitor will be your main DISPLAY.

your card is probably overheating. the alphadog editon has an extremly small cooling for the gpu. try cleaning it with a caned air spray and check the NVIDIA control panel to see the temp. of the GPU if the problem is solved try running a game benchmark to see if that works.

No display on my monitor only after first boot

This is a problem with the handshake of the two hardwares so first of all update your bios from your manufacturer's website and then update your graphics card drivers
