First, do not disable the display graphics..then you have to install the driver or software of your vidoe card to be able to recognize by your system. then you restart . see if this will work..

My graphics card does not show up on my Device Manager

I had just run into the same problem while installing my new graphics card earlier today. This is what I did to fix it:

1. Uninstall the new driver for the new card, if you can, in control panel if it installed.

2. Reinstall the new driver.

3. Go to Device Manager and UNINSTALL, not disable, UNINSTALL the on-board card. Don't worry this won't kill anything. It will ask you to restart your computer. Click yes.

4. While the computer is restarting and on the shut down screen for windows unplug the monitor cord from the onboard card and plug it into the new card.

5. Wait for windows to boot up and load the new drivers. It should be working with the correct drivers.

If it takes more than 8 minutes for anything to come on the screen(icons, login screen, etc.) reboot your computer again.

EV3A GT520 video card installation makes my screen go blank. My gateway computer has an integrated chip for video, and does not even recognize the new card but its plugged in, fan working, etc.

some bios settings disables the add on video cards. to enable them go to bios setting by pressing DEL or F12 while power on your system. (u will see that a message appears "press ----- Key to enter bios settings). after entering bios setting u will see onboard VGA enable/disable. u have to disable onboard VGA in order to get the display thruogh VGA card.

I have a asus p5g41-mlx3 mobo and i'm trying to install a palit 8400+ 1gb video card, but after installing and starting up my pc i get a blank screen. if i take out the card my computer works fine....

Check if it a jumper to disable the onboard video. If not, try disabling the onboard video in BIOS or selecting the option in BIOS to use a plugin card rather than onboard.

Where do you have your video cable plugged in? With the new graphics card installed, do you have video out of either connector?
