Video card failed, can't see to install another - Catch 22!

Put in another (different model that I had on hand), but no signal out. No built-in video output on back panel. I can't see anything to be able to load new drivers, or even log on. How do I install a new video card when I can't see anything??

SOURCE: No Video Signal

If you can't use the onboard video and it does POST or the PCI-E video card does show anything, most likely the motherboard is toasted. Apparenty gateway uses real poor quality power supplie and motherboards.

I have the same system, it powers on, but nothing. All I can assume is that the motherboard is bad.

Try resetting the bios. On the motherboard there is a battery that looks like a watch battery. Remove the battery, then replace it again. (make sure the computer is unplugged from the wall socket when you do this)

Does this work?

first install the video card in the pci slot first so that you have access to your monitors screen for you to disable the on board video chip or video card, go to the CMOS setup by pressing del key. once there you can browse through the CMOS setup to disable the on board video chip.

Hyundai U220WD LCD monitor displays OFF MODE (on a black backgroung). How do I restore the display? What does the MWE button do?


Hi
If the screen is connected to a computer usually its a video card/ video cable problem and not the LCD monitor. Try to check the video cable look for loose connection or bent pins, if none try using a different video cable or checked the video card component of the computer too see if its still working,. Your monitor is dependent to your video card signal inside the computer. Without the signal monitor will not work.
thanks for using Fixya

Won't work - light is on, but won't work.


you are having some kind of video adapter problem either you are using either a video card that has possibly failed or you are trying to use a video card that the card was installed before the driver was installed and your motherboard is still sending the vid3eo signal to the built in video adapter. it could also be something as simple as a bad cable from the pc to the monitor.

My monitor does not bring the bios set up and up saying no input signal what are the solution and causes


Check that the "data" cable is tightly-connected at both ends (monitor & video-card).

Try connecting the monitor to a different desktop/laptop computer, to see if the monitor works at all.

Try a different "data" cable between the monitor and the video-card;
obviously, your monitor's "power" cord is working, and thus, there's no need to swap that cable.

Try connecting a different monitor to your computer, to see if your video-card is transmitting any signals.

Temporarily swap-in a different video-card, to see if the video-card is the problem.

If all else fails, take the computer to a technician at a computer-store.

I turn my Gateway E4100 on and all the lights come on and the fan comes on but the monitor will not display anything I have tried a few different monitors and the ame thing always happens. Any thoughts?


Default Video Adapter Might Be Set Wrong Within Bios, RESET Your CMOS, by taking the pin and taking it from 1-2 and put it on 2-3. Or Just Take Out The Battery On The Board. Change Ur Adapter To Whichever Matches Your Card. PCI, AGP, PEG (PCI-E)

I Also Assumed Your Video Card Wasnt Built On, You Could Try Plugging Your Monitor Into Your Build On Video Adapter.

If All Fails, Try A Different Video Card. I Had a video card kill my computer once

My 2 year old out of the box Gateway GT5220 boots up as usual but there is no video signal from the onboard video card. No modifications to this unit at all.


After verifying this issue with a second monitor, it would seem a new video card would be in order. As far as I cant tell this model has built in video, often referred to as integrated. therefore replacing the current video component will not work. You will need to install a PCI-E video card. Often referred to as PCI express. This computer has one slot available for a PCI-E card. If that doesnt solve the issue then the problem extends past simply the video signal.

No signal keeps appearing


This message means the monitor is not getting a video signal from the computer.
This could be a loose video cable, a faulty video cable or a faulty video card.
It is possible the monitor is faulty, try connecting it to another computer with a different video cable. This will tell you if the monitor is faulty or not.

Hi! In your case, if you already check all the connections, the problem is in the display card adapter pls check your VIDEO card if its properly inserted, if it does. Then you have a defective video card. GOOD LUCK thanks

No display (black) - power light is amber color


The video signal is not reaching your monitor, check the pins on the connector from the monitor to the computer, then check the video card:

Turn off your computer, unplg the power, and then take out the video card. Wait 5 minutes and then put the card back into the computer and turn it on. For onboard video; turn off the computer, unplug the power, then hold down the power button on the front for 5-10 seconds, then plug back in and turn on.

Make sure the video card is snug in the AGP/PCI slot. If this is built-in video, try borrowing a video card from another computer and install it in this one. If the borrowed card works, then replace you card. If video is built in, then you can disble the onboard video and use the new card without having to replace your motherboard.
