    I am the OP. Using a vga to vga cord.

    LCD is PnP and did not come with a driver. Using XP driver.

    The MB has an on board video card. The monitor works fine in analog mode connected to the on-board interface.

    When I plug into the ati radeon 9250 video card and restart the computer I get no picture. If I plug onto on-board, I get the picture again. No need to restart.

    Haven't tried the DVI cable yet. Will post after I've tried that.

    Many thanks in advance. :)

    Can you test the monitor on another PC to ensure its not the monitor that is not working.

    Also, you could invest in DVI cable since this could (a) fix the problem since the VGA cable could be broken and (b) DVI quality is better. Cables are not expensive.

    Are you using a VGA to DVI converter cable?

Some monitors have a analog/digital switch. Check you documentation to see if your monitor is of this type. If it is, it might be as simple as switching to analog instead of digital.
BTW, If your card only has VGA (the blue plug) then using the DVI adapter (the white plug) will not likely improve visual quality.

    One other thing to check: Some of these graphics cards need external power to function. They will not work without it. I am not aware of any 9250's that have this requirement, but it is worth checking.

    Beyond that:
    The fact that the onboard graphics work when your Radeon does not limits the problem to one of two possible causes:
    1. The Radeon is dead (most likely)
    2. The AGP slot on your mainboard is bad. (less likely)

    Although I prefer the ATI cards (like your Radeon) for picture quality I have had really bad luck with the AGP variety.
    If the card was purchased new and is less than a year old, you probably have a warranty that is still in force.
    If you tell me the brand name of the card I can give more information on this.

    If you have a spare AGP card laying around, try swapping it out. I would bet that it will work.
    Otherwise, if you don't play games or anything on this PC, you may want to just remove the Radeon from the system altogether. With your onboard graphics working, you should be OK.

Computer video card swap?


Hello there!

Advantage is fairly possible.But the main thing that blocks people from getting full performance is,the power supply of your pc.
The new graphic card requires a little more of power supply to run better.You might wanna upgrade your PSU.

Cheers,
Aldo.

Well i put in graphic card ATi radeone 9250 agp 128 mb and then i instaled latest drivers for it including catalyst,and when i start game...any game..it crashes and i get error from catalyst center that it...


Hello
Uninstall All drivers and software for ati card. Take card out.Put card back in. Reboot pc.Reinstall drivers.I dont think the 128 mb cards Came with a fan.The 256mb did.

All the same,check your pc fans are working and clean.Also disable any onboard motherboard Graphics.You will need to do this in the bios.

Possible card was not seated right in agp slot,or drivers were corrupt.

ATI does not like drivers installed over top of it's self. Weird I know. So uninstall through your control panel. If the uninstall fails download and run.:

After a reboot install the new driver & Catalyst control center.
