I also have encountered that kind of problem before with my friend's unit. Your graphics card might be fried up. Pull out your video card from the slot and clean the motherboard connector from your video card (referring aligned gold colors) using eraser. When done, insert it again into the graphics card slot properly. See if there are still multi colored or jumbled letters. If still it persists, try to insert your video card to other computer unit if it is really working or not. If it has the same problem then that's the time to change your video card.

*Drop me a comment so I can assist you if you have problems.

Hi.

Click on the link below and download the driver for the card, if you are unsure then click on the Supported Products tab and you will see that the FX 5500 card is supported in the download.

Acer Aspire M5641 has a black screen, Power fan is on, CPU fan is on, hard drive has several initial clicking sounds but motor is not running; and i replace a new cmos-bios battery. But nothing...


if by pushing on the power button the machine does not immediately shut down, and you have to hold it down for 5 or 10 seconds, this would indicate that the system is fully functional. the problem would be , your monitor or integrated graphics (NVIDIA GeForce 7100 / nForce 630i) are bad. the graphics can be resolved by adding a graphics card to your system for a reasonable price that varies from 25.00 to 85.00 dollars. the proper card would be a PCI Express video graphics card. here is a link that will provide you with many different options suitable to your need. i suggest you take into consideration if you are a gamer , that you aquire one equal too or greater than 512 self supported ram. 512 will by far exceed the factory video capabilities, enabling a much higher quality video resolution and clearer video /gaming viewing.

I have a dell 20" LCD monitor. But Presario S4000V doesn't fit for that monitor. Please let me know what can i do. Change "Video card"? thanks


Have you tried changing the Resolution settings to "Recommended"? If so, then you may have to purchase a newer Video Card. Look-up your motherboard 1st, then go by the Recommendations of the motherboards BRAND and Chipset of Video Cards. If you have nVidia Chipset, get GeForce or nVidia card, VIA, SiS work fine w/ these (nVidia Chipsets) Video Cards. But, if the motherboard is of Intel Manuf, you will want the ATI card. Get at least a 256MB Memory card(512MB is better) and read-up on the cards resolution to make sure it fits your screen size/dimensions. Good Luck. To find out your motherboard type/brand, dwnld. CPU-Z for free online. It will tell you about your CPU, Motherboard, Memory, and alot more.

My 3 yr old Dell computer has a Nvidia GeForce 7300 video card that appears to be failing - got an error message Hardware acceleration is disabled - what should be done. Is it a fault or a setting?


To fix this click Start>Run. Then type in 'dxdiag' and click OK. Wait until it finishes loading and click the 'display' tab. Look for 'DirectX Features' with a blue font. Make sure everything under the heading is enabled

Downlaod and install latest bios update from support.dell.com

Black screen with AGP video card update


you really didn't need a new psu for that videocard, but it can either be a burned videocard or the monitor can't support the refresh rate the videocard is outputting.  although, the card really should default to its lowest setting upon installing in a new system, try connecting another monitor.  if you get a screen, thats good, if not, try booting into safe mode holding f8 right before the windows loading screen appears.

Monitor freezes up with multicolor wording or distorted images


Sounds to me like a few possible things...

1) Bad connection to the monitor, check the cable connection, if you see or suspect any damage, buy a new monitor or test with a friend's monitor.

2) Video card could be bad, if it has a video card, you could simply buy a new card to see if it will fix the problem. If the video port is attached to the motherboard (meaning onboard video), the motherboard could be damaged.

3) The motherboard could be bad. Sometimes fried motherboards will garble the screen like this on bootup.

Video Card not recognized on PCV-RS410


Hi, have you check the status of the video card in the window device manager.
1. Right clicking My Computer icon on your desktop
2. Select Manage option from menu
3. Select Device Manager
Please verify if there is any yellow color exclamation appears on the left side of your new video card adaptor. If so you need to install a driver. I am assuming your pc is running window xp and video card adaptor is window xp compatible.
Hope this help.

Display Problem


First things is to see if the problem is

  1. memory related(these all in one units have a problem that way.)
  2. Run everesthome and update chipset<NORTHBRIDGE>Google the northbridge for updates.
  3. nVidia GeForce FX Go5700 problem.Make sure all updates for graphic drivers have been installed, then attach an external monitor, the unit should support svga/dvi/s-video. Your graphics card has 128MB dedicated so if the external display responds the same way as internal monitor it's the video card or chipset.
