Question about PC Desktops
I have replaced the video card in my pc and now I can't get any monitor to work on it. it is a gateway pentium xp mfauxrul elp 500s
just passing by and i saw your concern.
this may help,
it could be *********** board bios and the buillt in VGA is on.
try placing your monitor on the built in display port at the back of your pc most of the time youll find it on near the usb and port.
and if display came up on that port meaning you have to disable built it display inside the bios setup.
you can stay to that display port to get the bios diplay setup change.
Providing me the model and make of your PC and your monitor will help a lot.
hope this gives you some idea whats happening to your pc.

First of all, and I know this sounds ridiculous but I've even done it, make sure you connected the monitor cable to the new video card and not to the old 'on-board' video connection.
Next, do you get a (BIOS) start-up screen? If you don't, you most likely have a bad or incompatible video card. If you do, you need to boot into the 'BIOS' setup by holding down which ever 'F' key your particular computer calls for, (I don't know the make of your computer), and look for video or display options and choose the appropriate setting (PCI or PCI-Express), 'Onboard' is the factory default and will only work with the monitor cable plugged in the 'original' connector.
If you still can't get it to work you may have to put the connector back on the original, then go into 'Device Manager' (right click My Computer - then choose 'Properties', then 'Hardware' tab, then Device Manager), go down and open 'Display adapters', choose update driver on the new card's entry and then 'disable' the original device. turn off PC, reconnect the monitor to the new card and reboot. Good Luck!
