Question about Computers & Internet
I have a Jaton Nvidia GeForce 8500 GT 256MB PCI-e video card. Standard VGA output works fine. DVI works only when booting up (BIOS screen, Windows startup screen) but thereafter is blank - so I suspected a driver issue, especially when I later upgraded the motherboard and the problem remained. Tried a couple of different drivers (using Win XP) but couldn't resolve it and decided to replace the card. Recently decided to upgrade another system to Win 8 and thought I'd give the card another go, hoping that any driver issue might be resolved, but had exactly the same problem. Any clues? Some strange BIOS or driver setting perhaps? It's strange that DVI output works on startup.

the problem is with display resolution setting which ur monitor doesnt support
press f8 on startup and choose enable vga mode
then widows will boot up in 640x480 mode
then change the resolution to 800x600 or whatever u want

Boot the system in safe mode. Go to device manager and under display adapters , right click on the onbaord graphics adapter and disable the same. It worked on one of the systems i troubleshot for the same problem.
Thanks for using Fixya

Testimonial: "I thought I had tried everything, but Proton taught me something new, and only a minute or two after I posted my problem! Works great now. Thanks!"
PCI is not the same as PCI Express - the sockets are different so users can't mix them up.
The nVidia card should work if it's a PCIE.
