Small video image on screen and will not detect video card.
This is a used computer. I don't understand how the video card would show a small picture on the screen, but drivers will not load for the video card. I took the computer apart and am replacing the charger jack. So, I'm not sure, but maybe there was some generic vga software loaded.
Re: Small video image on screen and will not detect video...
Your motherboard needs to detect the card first; so get your hardware chipset drivers downloaded; then next; get the VGA drivers (latest). Here re some tips that have always worked for me:
1. Download HWINFO; this precious software will tell you everything about the chips and hardware on your system.
2. Look for the chipset name, the video card name and search for the drivers online.
3. You may have a little issue if you go to manufacturer's site as they don't keep updated drivers for older laptops. I am guessing most of the drivers you need are intel, the graphics, chipset, wifi; so go to intels driver download page; they support device drivers long after OEM manufacturers stop listing drivers.
Intel also has a driver detection software that can scan the hardware and download the drivers that are missing or need updates.

How about different videos do they have the same resolution? If yes the problem here is not with the video from the camera it can be the resolution of your computer , because if the video card of your computer is not high and the resolution is also not that high video will not look sharp when play to the computer compare when play directly from the camera...
I'm glad to provide the steps to transfer images from Internal Memory of the Camera. When the camera does not have a memory card in it, the images are
saved by default to the camera's internal memory, which holds different
amounts of images based on how many megapixels are built into the
internal memory and what image quality and compression are selected in
the camera's menu. Once a memory\picture card is inserted in the camera,
the camera then saves the photos to the memory\picture card and ignores
the internal memory.
There are two ways to transfer the images from the internal memory.
To transfer photos to a computer from the internal memory using the
USB cable, first remove the memory card from the camera. Then, when the
camera is connected, the computer and software will only see what is in
the internal memory and transfer those photos or videos. During the
transfer process, the computer makes copies of the photos and videos-the
original images remain in the internal memory. After the transfer is
complete and the camera is safely disconnected from the computer, the
contents of the internal memory can be deleted by using the MEMORY
FORMAT function in the SETUP menu in the camera's menus.
The other way to transfer photos from the internal memory is to
transfer them to the memory\picture card using the BACKUP function in
the SETUP menu. If there is no memory\picture card in the camera, the
BACKUP function is grayed-out. During BACKUP, copies of the images are
transferred to the memory\picture card-the original images remain in the
internal memory. After the BACKUP is complete, the internal memory can
be cleared by removing the memory\picture card and formatting the
internal memory using the MEMORY FORMAT function in the SETUP menu in
the camera's menus.
Note: When the camera is connected to a computer using the USB cable with a
memory\picture card in the memory\picture card slot, the computer will
only see the contents of the memory\picture card.
Thanks for understanding. Please let me know if you require any additional help.
If the computer appears to boot up and the hard disk LED flashes then the computer is probably OK.
To determine if your LCD monitor or the video card is faulty, connect another monitor to your computer.
If the image is OK on the other monitor then the LCD monitor is faulty. If you also get a small dot on the other monitor then the video card is faulty and you will need to replace the video card.
There are two type of video adapters, a card type and integrated.
Integrated is when it is part of the motherboard. Card type is when it is a expansion card that is installed onto the motherboard.
Easiest way to tell which you have is by where you connect your monitor to your computer. If you connect by all your USB connections, mouse/keyboard connections then it is integrated...you can not replace it unless you replace the motherboard.
If you connect your monitor further away from the above mentioned, then you are most likely using a card type of video card. Here is a picture of what an installed video card would look like. The video card is the part that has the "small" fan on it. The left side of the picture is the back of the computer. http://tech.icrontic.com/draco/images/articles/tech_tips_5_vga_cooler/ws_installed.jpg

befor replacing,make sure settings in video output from video card are set for that monitor.If color quality is set too high or resolution settings not supported by the monitor are used picture may not show up at all.(try safe mode,Settings are usually at bare min.in safe made)
