Question about Computers & Internet
It worked for a little while. First games might send it to black screen, but then it started going into power save mode. Unplugging the power cord to the new monitor helped at first, but then this no longer helped. We never got it out of power save mode. We put back in his old graphics card, and the system runs fine, but he wants the new card back in. Could the system not be strong enough, could it be a cord problem? He said at school they had one they were working on, and the tech teacher told them to try another cord.
Trying another cord would be the first step. After that, make sure that you have the correct drivers for your OS. If it is not the drivers, then check the connection between the the card and the physical output device (the male VGA or HDMI connector).
