    Could you provide more information, please? What kind of video card did you install? Did you install the video card because the old one stopped working? or were you upgrading? What make/model of monitor do you have? What happens now when you turn on your computer?

Try booting the PC in safe mode.
Before Windows starts loading during startup, keep pressing F8, a menu should pop up. Select Safe Mode, then, when the PC has booted, you install the graphics cards drivers. Then set the resolution back to its minimal value in the control panel and restart it normally.

I hope this helps,
yannick.

The screen on my monitor is too large to be seen. How can I change it?


For best picture, you need to set your PC video resolution to 1280x1024, 60Hz
Right click on desk top to bring up the display properties, select Setting tab to set the resolution, make sure you do have correct video card driver installed in your PC otherwise you may not be able to set the resolution you want.

Monitor comes on shows a screen and then the power buttom begins to blink every 2 seconds and a black screen on the monitor remains blank


Try starting your computer in safe mode ( tap F8 while it boots up). If this works then you have probably got it set to the wrong resolution. Set it to the correct resolution (google the name of your monitor to find it's maximum resolution, or just set it to something low like 800x600 or 1024x768) by right-clicking on an empty bit of desktop and selecting the video settings or control panel for your video card.

If this does not work and you have checked your cables and your video card, then I would suggest you have a faulty monitor.

Are Dell monitors not compatible with older HP Pavilion Computer? I tried to connect my HP CPU to a Dell monitor and it will not recognize it at all.


It shouldn't make any difference which monitor you are connecting to any computer. In fact, I am running a 19" HP Flat Panel on my Dell Dimension 2400 right now. It is NOT a wide screen monitor as the Dell built in graphics card will not support the RESOLUTION RATIO required for the wide screen. Check what setting is "native resolution" for your monitor and see if your graphics card will support it. If not, using your old monitor, try different resolution settings. Right click on your desk top, click on properties and that should bring up the display properties box. Try a lower setting as larger settings are the ones that will give you a black screen. It will probably give you a smaller picture on your old monitor, or perhaps smaller or larger icons on the desk top. Accept the new settings, turn off your computer and switch monitors, and turn your computer back on. If you get a picture, but it does not fill the whole screen or the icons seem too large or small, then go back into properties from the desktop and try a different resolution ratio until the picture seems correct.

I have an older Dell dimension 1100 desk top and want to add a pc


Sure, if you are using XP, you should have no problem installing a second video card.
Here is a link to a dual head video card if you need it... http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814133233

Hope this helps, if so please rate my solution accordingly. Thanks, David

Video problem on my Dell Dimension 4600 PC, HELP ASAP.


the resolution set by default when you load your graphics driver is outside the range of your monitors capability.

try starting in safe mode then adjust your resolution to 640 by 480 then restart.
if this works, adjust upwards to 1024 by 768
then up again till the screen blanks.
when it does, dont panic, wait 20 seconds and the settings will restore - you then have the optimum settings for your monitor.

good luck

Monitor on Dell 1100


What type of video card does your laptop have?? A lot of video cards are not compatible with Vista. Did you try to going to the manufacturer's website and checking for a updates on your video card? They might have a update for Vista? If you can find out what type of video card you have. Since this is a dell, you should be able to contact dell. Give them your laptop number and they can tell you what make and model you have installed.
