What OS are you running? Can you access your OS in Safe Mode ?

If so: access the Device Manager (by right-clicking on My Computer, selecting Manage from the available options. Then select Device Manager on the right). Uninstall your Matrox display card. This forces your computer to re-install it, with default settings when your computer restarts.

On my Windows 8 system:
(Window key + P) bring up a menu that lets me select whether I want to use my Primary Display only, have things Duplicated over both displays, have things Extended over both displays, or use my External Display only.

Holding in the Windows key, then pressing the P key once - cycles to the next available option. Letting both keys go, selects that option.

Keep doing this until the display that you want to use initialises. You should then be able to make the changes to the settings that you want to.

Okay... I was fixing a computer (Compaq Presario SR1610NX) for a friend. It was the infamous XP mup.sys freeze-up, so I went to the default settings in BIOS, and took out some unused 56k modems. However,...

are you sure that is the default. I have never seen that in 20 years. Open it up and clear the cmos, could be a little glitchy when you reset it. Use the jumpers on the motherboard, if it does not have jumpers remove the cmos battery and reinsert it upside down. Power up the computer. Reverse the previous steps.

Computer turns on ! No display ! Did system restore and No Display

first thing how did you do a system restore without display? second thing unplug your display from the power and your computer then plug it back in making sure that the plugs are all the way in. then check that the monitor is switched on it should says something like no signal found, now turn on your computer, if you still dont get any display try to test the monitor on another computer or laptop with an external display socket. if the monitor works on another computer then you need to look at video card. if it is an onboard video card then you are probably out of luck and will have to buy a pci or pci express(pcie) card for it. i know that SR2013WM comes with integrated graphics so if thats what your using then just buy a graphics card and you will be up and running again. if you play games then get one with at least 512mb and also one that has a fan i have found that the ones without fans can heat up and slow everything down. ok i hope that helps let me know how you go.

My computer system on power but mother on fun is run but no display

Check the display connection between the computer and your monitor, if its ok and still nothing happens then open your computer casing and then find the bios jumper settings, read the motherboard manual for it so that you can find it easily and then reset the bios, once reset, turn-on again your computer but if nothing happen again, do this solution: remove the memory stick of inserted in the motherboard and then clean the pins with the eraser of a pencil and then insert it back. Hope this could help,

Onboard VGA port disabled, in Vista

You should try to disable it in the hardware list.

E-machines have an odd bios where not all the functions of the motherboard are available to the user.

If you can find the make and model of your board there is a good chance you can find the PROPER bios for it.

Emachines use motherboards from a variety of regular motherboard suppliers

My older e-machine has a hacked bios so that I can alter ALL the settings.

Dell Inspiron 530 boots then the screens turn off to orange light

Is the PC actually doing to sleep or is the display just amber with the fan and power light on the PC still running?

Do you have multiple video cards or multiple ports?
You may have the monitor plugged into the non-default port on your video card or the wrong card. Try plugging the monitor into another port as the PC should use all outputs when booting but then define a default display once the driver is loaded. Also take a look at the default video display in your BIOS settings. Depending on what your setup is you should be able to choose between (onboard, PCI, AGP)

My monitor will not work.

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!

Computer turns on, but there is no display on monitor.

The builtin video card is probably bad. Yes, you can get a PCI video card.

Video graphics card

being a PCI card, not a AGP or PCI-E the system may not simply switch to that one a primary display adapter when you install it, in the bios under advanced system settings or intergrated periferals, you should have an option to change the primary display adapter, make sure a PCI adapter is included.. if it isnt, chage it to recognise a PCI card as a primary adapter, turn the system off, and install your card then, depending on the bios/model of the mainboard on some of those dells, it may be a little hard to find, ive had to play with a few of them
