The problem resides with your monitor or your video card. To easily find out, get a family member or a neighbor to bring over their LCD monitor, then check the display. An LCD is the easiest to carry and easiest to position on a busy desk. If the display is normal on the LCD monitor, then your "other" monitor is defective, and vice versa. (Please ensure the monitors are at least turned OFF before you switch them, not necessary to turn off the computer) ZT3000 "Beta tester of "0"s and "1's"

Running Windows 7 Home Premium, recently tried installing Radeon X1300 AGP video card, and computer won't display anything or boot with it installed. With card unplugged and using onboard video it still...

Hi - I believe you might be suffering from one of two (or even both) problems. The video card sucks lots of power and I believe has a separate power connector on the card that should be connected. The type of connector varies with manufacturers; from a four pin floppy disc type to a molex type connector or even something proprietary.
Secondly -- It's recommended that you have a 350 watt or higher power supply in your system.
Either issue could keep your machine from booting.
Good Luck, Mikeywaf

My resolution is at 800x600 and my color at 4 after I load the drivers and reboot.....any answers?

you need to set it higher, right click on an empty space on your desktop, go to properties and go to the settings tab, on the screen resolution set it to be at least 1024x768 and color quality to be 32bit.

in vista it may be a bit different but you should still be able to access to the display control area by right clicking on an empty space on your desktop, going to personalize and then adjust screen resolution.

if your new driver is the problem there are 2 things you can attempt
1. do a system restore to a previous time before updating the driver.
2. start your computer, before the xp logo comes up press f8 severaltimes. a menu will come up, select safe mode, loggin and go into computer>properties>hardware>device manager and right click on the display device go into properties, click the driver tab and do rollback driver to reload the previous driver you had installed.

it could be also that the drivers you loaded if loaded from the disk that came with your card are currently outdated, go in the webpage of the manufacturer and look for new drivers.. for installation I strongly suggest that you do that in safemode.

good luck!

Problems with 8400GS graphics card

First, you need to be sure you have installed the correct drivers for the card that corresponds to your OS.

Second, you need to go into the control panel (assuming you are running Windows of course) and tell the computer you now have a new graphics card installed and to use it instead of the default one detected when the OS was installed.

Reattach the monitor to the GeForce card and reboot. All should be OK.

Blacked out windows with geforce 5500pci

i would get another card and try it.

or, boot to safe mode with F8 which will load default drivers, so you can un-install any that might be left over from an older card

Web cam is not responded

here is a check list that might help you . first if your using windows xp you must have atleast service pack 2 installed first , vista didnt have any requirments . also make sure your usb drivers and motherboard drivers have been updated properly for your motherboard . make sure you have installed the proper webcam drivers for this model ... i would unplug any other usb devices and try it by itself . There may be some sort of conflict with the camera and another device. but from what i read its not a very good cam its considered generic and sold under a few different names . anyway if still problems , if its new i would return it if possible and get a logitech which is a very user and software friendly webcam

    PC- Graphics display

    Hi Ev, you can go to this link & allow NVIDIA to check you're 8500GT card is up to date.

    As far as your DVD players not showing display, I need to ask you a question. Are you running Windows Vista? If you are please check windows update service. MS (might have a fix).

    Let me know either way so I can suggest a fix.

    Nvidia fx 5200

    The only time that this can happen is if the driver is not installed correctly, as on install you are normally asked if you want to activate support for dual monitors, so if you havent already, uninstall the card driver, restart and install driver again from the cd or from the NVIDIA website. If you have already tried this my apologies.
