Question about VisionTek Computers & Internet

1 Answer

VisionTek Radeon HD 5450 VHDCI doesn't seem to recognize monitors?

So I have two monitors plugged into the card, both vga with a vga to dvi-d adapter, and when I turn it on, nothing seems to happen on either of the monitors (I have them plugged into cable 1 and 2). The fan on the card runs, so it doesn't seem to be dead... I've tried switching the monitors, and installing the drivers that came with the card, nothing seems to happen. I tried plugging one of my monitors back into the onboard graphics card just to see what would happen, and it said that graphics card was disabled (which is exactly what its supposed to do) I cant tell if its a driver issue or a cabling issue or if the thing is just dead. Help?

Try one monitor at a time, if you get nothing, reseat the card, if you get nothing try another port like display port or hdmi. If you get nothing take the card out and try the onboard graphics. IF you get something with the onboard, replace the card.

SOURCE: want to disable onboard graphics to install and use pci vga card

You should be able to turn it off by booting the pc up into the Bios and changing your video settings to AGP.

SOURCE: need help disableing onboard video, and installing PCIe video card.

Hi rebelel1271, I do have the manual for you're Intel motherboard. You can have it as well. Click on the link below to download you're manual. document.write("D101GGC Product Documentation & Manuals") D101GGC Product Documentation & Manuals
Intel states you do not need to make any bios changes when you add a PCI-Express video card. See this on page 17, PCI and PCI Express Auto Configuration. Before installing you're PCI-E video card, open windows controll panel. Than open add/remove programs. Look for the driver software for you're onboard ATI Radeon X200. Uninstall that software. (If listed). Close all opened windows & shut down windows. Unplug the power cord from the PC. Open the case. Install you're new ATI Radeon X800 PCI-E video card. Double check all internal connections, (In case you may have bumped loose any cables). You're X800 may also have a 3-pin or 4-pin male power connector built on the card. If so, plug power to the X800.
Intel D101GGC driver page.

ATI's web site for the latest driver's.
http://game.amd.com/us-en/drivers_catalyst.aspx?p=xp/radeonx-xp
A little information. Once you're PCI-E has been installed. You're system memory will increase.

Good Luck!
If I can help you further, feel free to post here.

SOURCE: Sceptre monitor will not return from idle.

The only workaround was to not use the DVI cable but to use the old VGA cable. You still get the same resolution.
I have a different ATI board, so I'm thinking it's an ATI+Sceptre on DVI input bug. Anyway, use the VGA cable, it'll work.

SOURCE: "No signal detected" when LCD connected with DVI-D Cable

Thank you for providing your configuration details.
You have failed to specify wheather or not your LCD Display is under Warrenty.

Perhaps these simple trouble shooting procedures will get the job done.

1. use the DVI to VGA adaptor that came with your card

Plug in a regular CRT monitor to the Primary Display Output Port using the DVI to VGA adaptor
( either port can be designated as the primary by you )
I like to use the Port nearest to the motherboard as the Primary

2. plug in the your LCD monitor on Secondary Display port using your DVI cable

At this point you should be able to see your desktop on the Primary CRT Display

3. Go to the display properties and use the Nvidia Dual Display Setup Wizard

set both desktops to CLONED at a resolution of 1024x768 and set the refresh to 60Hz
which is default for most LCD displays , some have higher refresh rates , consult your user manuel

If the display resolution and refresh are set incorrectly for your CRT or LCD you will see
Signal Out of Range ( if the display has the ability to display that error message )

At this stage both displays should be showing a Windows Desktop

If you now see your desktop on both displays , you can now put the LCD on the Primary Port



No Signal Detected ( this means the display device is not receiving a signal )

If your LCD display is still displaying the error message
"No Signal Detected" after performing the trouble shooting proceedures
You may need to read the user manuel about how to enable DVI signal input.

If you are certan you have done everything correctly but still see only "No Signal Detected"

Your LCD Display may need replacement

SOURCE: BELKING SWITCH2

I've had one of these switches for a few years now. Just recently hooked it up again, only this time using a MS cordless mouse and keyboard. A bit different than the old wired mouse and keyboard I was using a few years ago, and we ran into this issue this time.

The switch requires the ScrollLock and the #2 to be keyed to switch. Twice on the ScrLk, then the 2 (on the number pad). After trying it with the wired keyboard and it worked, I looked at the wireless keyboard and noticed the ScrLk key was a function key. Hit the F Lock key and tried it again, and it worked this time.

I also found that with the power settings in the "save energy" mode, it had a tendancy not to switch when the other PC was asleep. Try hitting the reboot button to wake it up, and that might help.

Key things: Scroll lock key activated by hitting the Function Lock key. Wake up both systems so you know they're paying attention.

Hope this helps.

I have Radeon HD 5450 2GB DDR3 Video card, which resolution of moniter would support this video card


This video card has a max resolution of 2560x1600, so generally any LCD or LED monitor on the market should work for it. If you want to have it work at it's maximum though I would recommend a bigger monitor or you won't be able to read anything on the screen. Personally I use a 32" at 1360x768, not the highest resolution but it is what I am comfortable with.

Hi Just bought the VTX Radeon HD 5450. Tried to install it into my PC but couldn't get any picture. My first thought is that there is no power getting to it, since at the bottom right of the card is what...


Yiu do have a PCIe x16 slot on your motherboard and you need to make sure you have it installed correctly. As far as extra power, no power cable is required;
A big plus about the Radeon HD 5450 consuming so little power is that it doesn't require an external power source. The PCI Express bus alone is capable of delivering enough current to this card, but a 350w power source is required. When you go to install, the card needs to hook in at one end and you may have to push on tab that hits your case while pushing the card in to get it to fall in place. There is no need for an SPDIF cable with this card. If for some reason you cannot get sound through HDMI, you can get it through ATI's DVI to HDMI adaptor;
http://www.txcesssurplus.com/servlet/Categories
#6141054300G. Once installed you should get a picture but, if you don't see if you can start in safe mode and go to "Device Manager", click on "Display Adaptors" and see if it's in the list. If so right click on it and make sure you see "disable" in the list. If you see "enable", click on that and exit. You may have to disable you on board graphics also. Do initial install off of installation cd then, you can update your VGA and Catalyst Control at AMD's site.

Hope I've help you somehow. =)
