Signal to monitor goes in and out, mostly out

Most of the time I do not get a signal from the Gateway GT5220 with a nVidia GEForce 6150 video integrated into mother board. have tried replacing video card with another nVidia but computer doesn't recognize it even with cd software coming with it. Gateway now says my mother board is problem. only 1.5 years old. any suggestions???

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,

Eric

IS THIS BOARD ABLE TO ACCEPT MORE THAN ONE MONITOR


Hello,

Yes but only by adding a video card to one of the PCI slots and running XP or Vista os. But on its own, no, it can not run more than one monitor at one time.

Even though it is a Nvidia GeForce card, you want to use the HP drivers. Laptop video cards are set up a little different then desktop video cards.
Here's the link to that drive page.

Will Princeton monitor VL1918 support NVIDIA GeForce 6150 SE


Hi Alvie
I Just checked the specs on both the card and the monitor. It should work no problem. If for some reason you notice some lag or flicker in the monitor, go to this page and download the updated ForceWare graphics drivers.
