All this video card and monitor business sounds fairly
complicated although, if it's all running right, it's no big deal. Only when
something goes wrong in the process do you need to get involved.
So what can go wrong? Here's a short list:
Your cables might be
disconnected. If the cable from the video card to your monitor isn't
firmly connected, all sorts of strange images can show up onscreen. Or,
sometimes, absolutely nothing at all shows up. Cable problems are like that. So
if you have a video problem, you should always
check your connections, including the power cable. And while you're at it, make
sure that you don't have any bent pins on your cable plugs.
Your monitor might need
adjusting. Most monitors have the same type of picture controls as your
TV set—contrast, brightness, and even vertical and horizontal hold on some
models. Some monitors let you adjust the size and position of the display image
itself. If your display doesn't look right, adjust it.
To keep your monitor in tip-top shape, avoid dusty areas and
strong magnetic fields. You should also use a soft, static-free cloth (or
special "screen cleaner" wet pads) to clean your monitor screen at least once a
You might have a bad monitor/card
combination. Believe it or not, some newer video cards don't work with
some older monitors. In particular, you can't use a higher-resolution card with
a lower-resolution monitor. Check with your dealer to make sure that you have
the right monitor/card combination.
Your video card might be inserted
improperly. The video card is just like any other expansion card in your
computer. If the video card isn't seated in its slot properly, it won't work
Your video card might be set up
incorrectly. Some video cards use either separate software programs or
switches on the card itself to adapt to a particular monitor and system. If the
card's switches are set wrong, the display might not work at all. Check your
card's switch settings against those recommended in the card's documentation.
Your drivers might be set up
incorrectly. If you've loaded the wrong video driver for your video card,
you could get gibberish on your screen. If Windows doesn't recognize your video
card, it will run a generic video driver—which will display the lowest possible
resolution. It's also possible that Windows will recognize the wrong video card, mistaking your card for another card
and causing all sorts of havoc. As is the case when installing any new device,
you should always double-check your driver setup.
You might need a new video
driver. Check with the manufacturer of your video card to make sure that
you have the latest version of their video driver. Older drivers might not work
with newer versions of Windows.
Your monitor might be on the
fritz. If your TV can go on the fritz, your PC monitor can go on the
fritz, too. If you get lots of lines onscreen, or smoke out the back of the
monitor, or if nothing at all happens, suspect the worst.
Your video card might be bad. Enough said.thats all for now Good luck.
