You need a card that will support dual monitor, even if it is VGA and DVI.

SOURCE: No Video Signal

If you can't use the onboard video and it does POST or the PCI-E video card does show anything, most likely the motherboard is toasted. Apparenty gateway uses real poor quality power supplie and motherboards.

I have the same system, it powers on, but nothing. All I can assume is that the motherboard is bad.

Try resetting the bios. On the motherboard there is a battery that looks like a watch battery. Remove the battery, then replace it again. (make sure the computer is unplugged from the wall socket when you do this)

Does this work?

Try to set your PCI-E card as a first one in BIOS. There also should be an option to turn off onboard video.

SOURCE: Add on PCI-E video card doesn't work

I would check the BIOS To check the boot order preference to see if you can tell the motherboard to Force Starting up with the PCI-E Slot.

If the slot did go bad, most likely you would see the system crash instead of just automatically going back to using the onboard video card.

SOURCE: GT4023E No video signal to monitor.

A different video card could very well solve this problem. Find a spare card or borrow a friends and see if that fixes the problem. Also, it couldn't hurt to clear the CMOS settings, normally there is a jumper in the computer that allows you to do this. If you are unable to find the jumper, remove the CMOS battery from the computer and unplug the computer.

Trouble with install second video card HD 5450 to emachines t6532


Unclear of your statement. (More like run-on sentence)

Problem heading statement reads,
"trouble with install second video card HD5450 TO eMachines T6532"

Need clarification

The eMachines T6532 Desktop PC uses an MSI MS-7207 motherboard.
Also known as the MSI K8NGM2-L,

http://www.msi.com/product/mb/K8NGM2-FID--IL--L.html

(Click on photo for a better image)


Has one long white PCI Express x16 slot. (Expansion Slot)
Only uses one graphics card at a time, will Not use two.

[Graphics card / Video card. Same/same]

Therefore I surmise you are not referring to adding a Second graphics card, but are referring to;

A) This is the second time you have added a graphics card.

Or,

B) This is the second ATI Radeon HD5450 graphics card.
Had one before. Removed it, and are using a new one.

Or,

C) This is the second time you have added a graphics card.
It is not an ATI Radeon HD5450 like the old one is.

Know this;
1) You can ONLY use the OnBoard (Integrated) graphics,
OR the graphics card.
You CANNOT use both.

When using a graphics card the monitor is plugged into it.
You cannot plug into the onboard graphics of the motherboard, with it installed in the computer.

Said differently;
With the graphics card physically installed in the computer, you cannot just unplug the monitor from the graphics card; and plug it into the OnBoard graphics of the motherboard.

[Also; Computer on, you CANNOT unplug a monitor, and plug it back in.
This = NO ]


2) Driver: Small piece of software that allows the Operating System to communicate with a device.

The device is the graphics card.
The version of Windows operating system was not stated.

Did you install the software from the Installation Disk? (CD/DVD)
Has the drivers on it, and the user interface software.
User interface software for an ATI graphics card, is Catalyst Control Center.

(Just to note; I'm using a Powercolor Radeon HD5450 graphics card, right now.
I'm using dual monitors.

HP 2009M - 20 inch widescreen LCD monitor, and an RCA L26HD31 HDTV as the main monitor. (26 inch HDTV)
They work GREAT! ]

(It is an ATI Radeon HD5450 graphics card just like yours, IF yours has 1GB of graphics memory.

Doesn't matter what graphics card manufacturer, makes that HD5450, it is still an ATI (AMD) design.

Powercolor, VisionTek, Sapphire, Diamond Multimedia, Mickey Mouse, or Goofy. It is still an ATI graphics card )

The ATI Radeon HD5450 graphics card, has to have a MINIMUM power requirement of 350 Watts.
Does your power supply have 350 Watts or more?

If it is the original power supply, the answer is NO.

Back then power supply manufacturers were 'fudging' the true maximum rated wattage.
Why?

Sold more power supplies.

Power supply rated at 250 Watts?
Nope.
More like 60 to 70 percent of that.

Divide 250 by 10.
= 25.
Take that times 6. = 150 Watts (60 percent)
Times 7 = 175 Watts (70 percent)

Would like your opening statements clarified.
Post back in a Comment.

Adding discrete graphics card to p6stp-fl


!O_O!

1) Unplug the computer from power.

2) Press the Power On button in, and hold it in for a count of 10 seconds. Let go. (HAS to be 10. Count)
Do this same procedure TWO more times.
(IF the Power On LED flashes for a second, keep repeating until it doesn't)

What you are doing is clearing CMOS Error Codes, and resetting BIOS Setup parameters back to the factory default settings.

3) FOLLOWING Anti-Static Precautions remove the graphics card.
Plug the monitor back into the Integrated (OnBoard) graphics, of the motherboard. (VGA connector)

4) Plug the computer back into power. WAIT 1 minute, turn the computer on.

5) When Windows has loaded wait a couple of minutes, then take that graphics card's Installation (CD) Disk, and put it in the optical drive.

If the disk doesn't start loading after 10 seconds, go to My Computer, and double-click on the drive letter, next to the optical drive, the Installation Disk is in.

When asked choose all software. Nvidia Control Panel, and drivers.

Your computer will keep on using the Integrated (OnBoard) drivers, for graphics. It will Not use the drivers, and software you are installing now, until the graphics card is physically installed.

Install all software. If you are asked to restart your computer -> NO
Close all windows, go back to your desktop screen.
Turn the computer off normally.
(Start > Turn Off Computer > Turn Off)

6) Unplug from power, follow Anti-Static Precautions.
Unplug the monitor from the motherboard. Physically install the graphics card.
Plug the monitor into the graphics card. Close the computer case.

7) Plug into power. WAIT 1 minute, turn the computer on.
You may have to go into Nvidia Control Panel, and set the correct parameters for your monitor. (Screen Resolution / Color quality )

Clear CMOS Error Codes, and reset BIOS Setup back to factory settings doesn't work?
You get to go back into BIOS Setup, and set the submenu you changed, (Or submenu's), back to the factory standard setting.
(F6?)

You are trying to use the OnBoard graphics drivers for the -> graphics card. This = NO.
You need THE drivers for the graphics card installed F-I-R-S-T.

(OnBoard. ON the motherBOARD.
Used to be used for Integrated Graphics.
Makes it easier to understand if you use OnBoard Graphics )

Why?

When a device, (In this case a graphics adapter card), is installed, Windows 'breaks it's neck' to find suitable, matching drivers.
If THE drivers are not there, Windows will match up one of it's THOUSANDS of generic drivers.

This = No.

You need THE drivers already installed. Windows looks to see what device is installed, then finds THE drivers needed.

The second PCI-e slot doesn't seem to work.


Did you check your BIOS to be sure that both PCI-E slots are enabled? If so, then did your check the documentation that came with your video cards to see if there's any setting your have to make\change in order to run the cards in SLI? The User's Manual for the motherboard may tell you if BIOS settings have to be change for running in SLI.

When I plug my monitor into my video card i get "no input signal" yet if i plug it into the onboard slot it works.could my PCI-E slot be bad?


Did you add a video card? If you have an AGP slot, it is best to put the video card in it. If so you need to go into the Device manager. Remove, disable or uninstall the onboard VGA driver. Go ahead and remove the PCI video card driver as well. Power down PC. Make sure monitor is hooked up to the Video Card, not onboard VGA. Power on PC. When Windows loads, it should detect the VGA card first, but if it detects the onboard first, ignore and don't setup onboard first. When Windows detects the card, load the necessary drivers when prompted. There is no need to reinstall the onboard driver for the video unless you wish to hook up two monitors.

Ecs p4m800 m7 no display


On board video will likely be disabled if you plug in another video card.

Newer video cards require a connection from the power supply to provide additional power not available on the PCI bus to drive the GPU. It is possible that your 350W power supply does not have enough juice, or the rail is bad.

First guess, check the video card for a power connector. Second, check the power supply. Lastly, if you remove the PCI video card, onboard video will likely work again.

Good luck.

Added a ge force 8400 gs pci grfx card to hp a6120n monitor


Alright, let's give this a shot. Your system can handle it as the card only needs 71W of power.

Right-click your desktop and go to properties.

Screenshot.

Afterward select the tab at the top reading, "Settings."

Screenshot.

Now select your new video card in the, "Display" region and choose the device to be your, "Primary Monitor."

Screenshot.

Afterward try plugging the monitor into your new graphics card. It should work just fine.
