New video card wont work

I installed a new video card, and I've got audio, but no video . All of the connections seem to be in order but the card doesn't do anything, no beeps, lights, and the fan doesn't run. I did not remove a video card to add this one, so i know that i have to disable the built in one, but I'm computer illiterate and cannot find the proper place in bios to do it.

The place to do this in bios is under the onboard devices area. Is there a power connection required for the new card? If so you would need to plug the 6 pin pci-e power connector to the power connection plug on the new card. If not required make sure your power supply supplies enough wattage to run the new card. Hope this helps.

Hdmi wont work


The drivers may need to be re-installed. The drivers for the VGA and the HDMI are different as the HDMI also does the High Def audio. Look on the ATI site for the "Catalyst Suite" for your card. then just follow the instructions. It allows you to set up the ports individually. I hope this helps.

Hello,

I am presuming that the mainboard is an Asus model with integrated VGA.

In order to perform the following steps you may have to remove your new VGA board and reconnect your monitor to the mainboard VGA in order to have a display on your monitor.

If your new VGA board is an AGP or PCI express, connecting your monitor to the new VGA board should have been detected and applied the VGA output through the new board. If the new VGA board is a PCI type then go to the new steps to make changes to your CMOS via the BIOS settings.

If not the Asus mainboard may have to have the CMOS setup change through your BIOS settings.

Upon bootup you should be able to hit the delte key and the BIOS screen should come one.
Scroll down to the a view that will show "Onboard Settings" or similar wording.
Select and disable the Asus onboard VGA or video.

If problem still persist, then go to the Assus.Com web site for support on your model Asus mainboard for the maunual, or trouble shooting questions on settings.

Good Luck

Hey! I´ve bought Sapphire RADEON HD6870


you should check that your motherboard is compatible with this video card or not (search in google or ask support center of the company).
if it is compatible do these steps:
intercept all of cables of your PC case and even power cable of your monitor.
evolve battery of bios then wait for 25 minutes then connect all of cables and try turning on your PC:
1- with battery of bios
2- without battery of bios
it should work.
(this works cause the motherboard reset it's bios and start correctly again).
if it doesn't work, surely your video card is damaged. it is not about how you mounted the card or it is not damaged physically by you. this card is damaged while producing in the company.
in fact in every 100 products of a company it is possible that 2 out of them be damaged.
so take your video cad to a guarantee center. they will test it and if it work wrong or doesn't work,they will give you a new video card.

Radeon 9600 (128mb) detected as sis315 vga (16mb)!!!


The SIS315 is an integrated video card which uses shared RAM in order to work. Most mainboards will automatically turn off the integrated card as soon as an AGP or PCI-e card is installed. Yours may not do this, or maybe the card just needs re-seating as it is not picking it up correctly.
First you need to double check to make sure the new card is firmly in the slot (this is a common problem that is often overlooked) re-seat card and push it firmly and evenly into the slot. Next, on start-up, go into BIOS and make sure all on-board video is disabled. Save and then restart as normal, hopefully it will see your new card and then be looking for the drivers.
It is possible that the BIOS has your on-board video set on auto, which would mean if no other card is present then the PC would automatically go back to on-board video. Which means it can't see your new card, which in turn means it is either not installed properly or it is faulty.
Just out of interest, it may seem a stupid question but you have plugged your monitor cable into your new card and not the on-board socket?
As always much more info is needed for more help

Do ultimate allience supports on asus A9250 128 mb?


Hi,

After checking out your video card it seems that your video card is far outdated for this game. You will just need to upgrade it to a newer model and you should see picture.
