That usually applies to desktops with an add-on car, because laptops have integrated video chips.

F2 should be your BIOS access key.

Dual vga displays


With some motherboards the on board Video is automatically cancelled out when a slot dependent Video Controller is present. Bios will not change that option. If you want to use two Monitors at the same time, get a DUAL Video out card.

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

Disable on-board VGA


you have to get into bios setting to disable On board VGA card man, just restart your system , on the time system getting on press f8 or delete key or any equivalent key to enter BIOS mode , because different manufacture used to have different key to enter into BIOS mode. After you get into Bios mode just look over and go to advance setting to disable On board VGA card.

Good luck ! if you think your problem solved don't forget to rate

Iam change the vga chard but no display


If you added a VGA card and were using the video on the motherboard then you must disable intergrated video or select PCI(or AGP) video in the BIOS.

I put a mad dog video card on my XP and I don't get a picture on my monitor. Any ideas?


Have you switched the video output to the slot your mad dog card is in.. Go into your system bios and change the video from VGA to which ever type of card you installed, like vga to PCIE or VGA to AGP !! Alternatively, if you see the AUTO option, enable it as the system will then route the video output to which ever video card is currently connected to a monitor. Just make sure you plug the monitor into the new card BEFORE you reboot the machine.. In other words, use the old video output to change the bios settings, then BEFORE you hit F10 to save and reboot, swap the video cable to the new cards output and then hit F10..
