Desk top dell has a black screen


If your dealing with a black screen on a dell desktop it could mean a couple things. First make sure your monitor is connected to the back of the computer. Second make sure its connected to the right video card because there may be 2 of them. The one at the top is the on board video and a lot of people add a better one in a pci slot towards the bottom. In event that is not the case and the monitor is turned on it could be a faulty video card, bad driver, or the video card needs reseated.
1. turn off computer Sometimes when moving desktops pci cards are jarred and need reseated.
2. Open the case at the back by removing the two screws holding on the side panel
3. then remove the screw that is holding the pci video card, pull out the card
4.then reseat
5.rescrew
6. restart
if this doesn't fix the issue then buy a video card that is compatibly to your motherboard and replace it

if it is an onboard video card buy a pci or pci-e or a video card that is compatible for your computer

Can I replace the video card or add a video card to my laptop Gateway MX3225 Notebook for a better one?


Video cards are normally built-in on the laptop motherboard and you cannot replace them or add a new one because there is not an expansion slot to add a video card.

Can I upgrade my graphics card for my Gateway NV59C41U laptop?


Yes here is a link to a nifty way to have an external PCI Express slot on your laptop where you can add any PCI Express Video Card! :)

If you have 4GB of ram then you need to have a 64 bit processor or you will have a 4GB cap with the video card ram and the ram installed I believe.

It is best to disable the onboard video electrically via a jumper or dip switch on your computers motherboard or in its system BIOS. Please refer to your computers user guide or contact your computer manufacturer for instruction on this process.
In the event that your system does not support the above, you may be able to disable the onboard video card in the operating system using the instructions below.
Make sure that the new PCI video card is not installed in your computer.
Windows XP/2000
1. Right-click My Computer and select Properties.
2. Click the Hardware tab, and then click the Device Manager button.
3. Click View, and then Show Hidden Devices.
4. Click the Plus (+) sign next to the Display Adapters category to expand it.
5. Select the onboard graphics controller under Display Adapters and click Disable. Click OK to confirm.
6. Do not restart the computer until the controller is disabled.
7. Turn the computer off.
8. Install your PCI GeForce card and follow the included instructions from the card manufacturer.

My gateway laptop cant connect to the internet. _When I plug a cable, the red light in the port does not respond _ The WIFI does not respond


Hello John,
It seems that: 1. Your LAN controller and the WiFi controller could be disabled in your BIOS setup.To re-enable them, if applicable,
  • Press the F1(or F2 ) key repeatedly after restarting the computer to enter the BIOS setup.
  • Navigate through your BIOS and locate the settings for LAN conroller and wireless, and select Enabled to enable them.
2. You may not have the appropriate drivers installed on your laptop for your network controllers. Upon further investigation, your laptop runs on the following network hardware:
  • ActionTec IEEE 802.11b network card installed in Mini PCI expansion slot
  • Broadcom BCM94306 IEEE802.11g network card installed in Mini PCI expansion slot
  • Broadcom BCM94300 IEEE802.11a/g network card installed in Mini PCI expansion slot
Download and install your drivers for the hardware above from: Wireless Drivers(Broadcom BCM94306) from http://www.soft32.com/download_175098.html Broadcom BCM94306 10/100Mbps LAN drivers from http://www.broadcom.com/support/ethernet_nic/downloaddrivers.php
Hope this solution helps.Good day.

You can also download some slaxware linux distro's and put them on a USB stick for other diagnosing tools.

Cannot see the bios screen


I would try removing, the cd drive,hardrives out so all you have connected is the processor, and ram. If two sticks dont work try one. Try this as a starting point too see if you get a display signal from the monitor, and the bios. Also try putting in a video card in the pci or agp if the on board video isnt working.
