Question about Dell (M1325) (64 MB) Graphic Card
Hello, I run a Dell Dimension 2400, and for the past year have been using a Geforce 5600 GFX card with no issues. Yesterday I unplugged my speakers and the Monitor went into powerdown mode (with a message on screen of Monitor in power down mode , please activate using PC), no matter what i try to do , with keybard or mouse the Monitor will not come "online". I have also tried re-installing the GFX card, the Dell2400 comes with an integrated GFX card which has to be disabled to allow proper install, With the Geforce card out, the monitopr will power up, i can turn off and on the drivers for the integrated card , and the monitor will come online in either display mode. As soon as I plug in the Geforce card, whether i connect monitor to it or leave monitor in integrated port, the monitor goes into power save mode. I am at a loss , as to what to do, and hope sincerely that there is a simple trick/ something I am missing that you may be able to bring to light. thanks in advance
I think maybe some how the main graphics for your pc has possibly switched to onboard. Try getting into bios F2 or DEl on boot up and highlight Advanced ChipsetFeatures and press Enter. In here make sure your AGP card is set as the Primary graphics controller. When done press ESC and 'Y' to save settings, then re-boot pc. Hope this gets you running again.
