Question about Graphics Cards

3 Answers

Graphics Card My Gateway PC screen is completely black;it says that there is no signal.My computer is running perfectly;it's just the monitor.I followed the owner's manual to a "T" but still had no results.I phoned Gateway support and was told that the issue is most likely a graphics card problem.They said for a fee they could mail me out one and verbally guide me via phone as to how to connect the card to my pc.Question's:Any suggestions where I can purchase a graphics card besides Gateway?They want to charge me 70$ plus shipping.I have no clue if that is a fair price.And how would I go about how to connect the card myself?Any online tutorials?Thanks!

Re: Graphics Card

It's a fair price for a general graphics card just to get a display back on your computer, and that's not too bad considering it includes shipping, but the prices of different models vary a lot. There'll be plenty of online tutorials such as this: But before you do so, sometimes you don't get a display output because your monitor is plugged into the wrong VGA port. Look at the back and see if there is another of the same port located below where it is currently plugged in, if there is one - plug it in there and try again.

VGA connection works, DVI does not

Everything seems perfectly normal...

When you connect the computer to the monitor via an analog VGA cable, you get signal on the analog input.
When you connect them via a DVI cable, you feed the monitor's DIGITAL input, so the monitor doesn't get any signal on it's analog input, and informs you about it.
You have to select the digital input from the monitor's On Screen Menu, and then start the computer up - you should see the picture OK.
Also remember to set the display resolution on your computer to match the optimum (native) resolution of your monitor - this will give you optimum picture quality. In case of VA712B it will be 1280x1024.
Good luck and please come back with a testimonial if helped.

  • First you should check your connection from your monitor to your computer, generally it will be at the back of CPU (Computer Cabinet).
See the image: 7fe1438.jpg This will be connected to your PC Video out port:351cada.jpg

  • Regarding rate there are too many products, you can search at net for your need.
