After installing new ATI HD4670 video card on my Gateway zx6810 I boot system hear no beeps computer powers on but screen is black


Hello

Is this new video card the only video source on the PC (i.e. there is no other VGA connections on the PC)?

Without knowing the make and model of the PC, I will list the most common issue when replacing the video card in a PC.

1. Connect the monitor to each available VGA connection and boot the computer - to see if any VGA output is working

2. When you find a working VGA output, go into BIOS and change the VIDEO settings to either allow BOTH the onboard and add in video OR allow the add in video only. Save the changes and turn the computer off.

3. Move the video cable to the add in video card, turn the computer on and see if the BIOS is using the new Video card

Install new video card in Gateway GM5072 with Pheonix bios and disable oonboard video


There should be an option to disable the onboard VGA connection within the BIOS of the computer.
Plug your monitor into the onboard video output to do this.

Video turns blue. can i use an external video card and what type


Every low to midrange PCI-Express ×16 video card will do. Make sure it doesn't need extra power or you will have to replace the PSU also.

My 2 year old out of the box Gateway GT5220 boots up as usual but there is no video signal from the onboard video card. No modifications to this unit at all.


After verifying this issue with a second monitor, it would seem a new video card would be in order. As far as I cant tell this model has built in video, often referred to as integrated. therefore replacing the current video component will not work. You will need to install a PCI-E video card. Often referred to as PCI express. This computer has one slot available for a PCI-E card. If that doesnt solve the issue then the problem extends past simply the video signal.

System does not see new video card


Confirm the card works in another system to eliminate it as a suspect. Try a beefier power supply in the machine (sometimes these 300 to 350 watt supplies just cant hang when an addon card is installed). Check the BIOS settings and make sure that the PCI Express slot resources are active for the card. If the card uses a power connector, make sure it is connected. Keep us posted.

Will this motherboard support adding a new video card?


Yes, but it has to be strictly a regular PCI video card. You cannot use an AGP or PCI Express card.

Here is a link to available cards through Tiger Direct:

PCI Video Cards

Another thing to remember is that you may need to change an item in your BIOS to turn your On-board video off.

Thanks for using Fixya.

Signal to monitor goes in and out, mostly out


Hopefully, it is just the on board video that has gone bad, and not the motherboard. When you install a video card on a PC, that has on board or integrated video, you will need to access the BIOS screen on start up and disable the on board video. That way the video signal will come from the new video card and not the on board video.

I hope this helps,

Gt5520 video card


Is this a PCI-E card? I will work on the assumption that it is. Unless you are running two video cards in SLI remove the old card, they make great paper weights. Be sure to only add/remove hardware while the machine is turned off.

Pb not seeing my new video card


The 9600 video card, I am fairly sure, has a connection on the card itself for power. Have you maybe fogotten to connect the power supply to the video card? If not , try reseating the video card.  A third possibality.. Some MB, if they have on board video, require you to turn off the "on board video" in order for it to use (see) the New PCI video card. Hope this helps.
