How are you connecting your two monitors? Is it that they one works, but not the other? You should maybe check your drivers for the card you're using and check if it supports dual screen.

If you want my recommendation of video card it does depend on your budget. However, almost all of the current Nvidia gaps are dual screen compadable and you should be able to grab the low end one for about $40-$60.

Hello.

Since you successfully disabled the onboard video card and the card is not working, remove the card, enable your old card and re-install the drivers for ATI Radeon. Disable your on board card again and install the new card.

Also, try the ATI card in another computer to see if the card is faulty.

Hope this helps.

SOURCE: Need a solution to get Ubuntu to work with this video card

ATI cards are always a bit of an issue with Ubuntu - ATI offer very little support, in contrast nVidia are very impressive.

There seems to be a lot of issues with ATIs and Jaunty so you're probably best to stick with Intrepid (8.10).

Look into fglrx.

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

Non display for DELL GX 110PC Desktop


Either your monitor is bad or the video card inside the computer is bad. To isolate the problem try a different monitor on the computer. Borrow a monitor from a neighbor, friend, relative or co-worker. If the borrowed monitor works, then your original monitor is bad. If the Borrowed monitor does not work, then the video card inside your computer is bad.

Gateway with 2 data ports


The "Connect monitor to alternate video port" message suggests that it is the motherboard video port. Since your computer has a video graphics card, the motherboard connections are disabled in the BIOS. (This avoids conflicts.)

Many video cards have several display ports each of a different type (VGA, DVI, HDMI, DisplayPort (less likely on a low-end desktop)) . Some of these cards can drive two monitors at the same time. Look at where your current monitor is connected, then consider an adapter to connect the second monitor to that video card. (For example, a DVI to VGA adapter will let you connect a VGA monitor cable to the DVI port.) Some DVI ports will let you run two monitors from the one port with a splitter.

Gateway has support documents for their computers here: http://support.gateway.com/us/en/support/default.aspx . You'll need to use the model number and look for the User's Guide, Top Answers and support documents tabs.

The only way to use the blocked port would be to enable it in the BIOS (usually press F2 on start up for Gateways). Press this key repeatedly from power on until it responds. I frequently miss the timing, just shut down and try again. However, first you would need to remove the graphics card drivers (uninstall program (Catalyst for AMD/ATI) and the drivers) from your Windows OS. Then remove the graphics card from the desktop. Since this requires opening the computer, you will need to be careful to remain grounded relative to the computer. (Use a ground strap or work carefully touching a metal surface of the case.)

Please add a comment with your computer's model number and I'll be glad to give you specifics on running two monitors from your system.

I hope this helps.

The pc turns on but no image on screen sometimes,have changed memory modules.its seeing well you restart it and then no image,but pc is on


For a desktop, first try the monitor on another computer, preferably with a different video cable. If it doesn't show a picture; the fault is probably at the monitor. Also try a different monitor on the Gateway.

If these two tests show that the monitor is bad, replace it to use your computer for now. (If it is under warranty, consider warranty repair. Otherwise we can try to diagnose the problem. (Common problems for an LCD monitor are the power supply, the backlight, the backlight inverter or the main board itself. The inverter is the easiest part to replace and can be tested with an oscilliscope or a multi-meter that can measure several thousand Hz.)

If you get a picture, try the monitor on the first computer with the second video cable to rule out a bad cable.

If there is still no picture, the next step is to determine if the computer has a video card installed or if you are using the on-board video. Many computers have both so try plugging the monitor into the other ports if there are any. (The on-board video is disabled when you have a video card in place. When reconnecting the cables, it can be easy to plug into the wrong spot.) Check if the monitor is working.

Replace the video card with one appropriate for your computer (you will need the specs for your computer's PSU (original specs - 300W) and card slot (PCIe x16)). You need a card that doesn't require more power than the power supply can put out. (Remember the CPU and other components need power too. Card specs will include the recommended minimum power supply needed to run the card.)

If you can, get a card that matches the existing video card. This will avoid a major problem. You need to uninstall the current video card drivers to put in a new one. You can try booting into Safe Mode by pressing F8 as you power up the computer. (This can take several tries to catch the point where the computer looks for the keystroke. You only have a few seconds.)

If you have been using the on-board graphics, get a video card. You will need to press a key (F1 or F2 for most Gateways) to enter the BIOS then disable the on-board graphics when you install the new card.

I hope this helps.

It could also be you graphics card, try your monitor on a different PC, if it works ok, your graphics card probably has a fault. If it doesn't you've a monitor fault.

They're fairly cheap second hand from ebay, but check the connection is the same as yours, there are several different types VGA, VGA2 etc.

can't say for sure but I would believe it would have to be with your power supply, you might not be getting enough power out to run the card. Try putting in a different power supply and see if that works.

How do i physically connect a second monitor to my AX300, do i need an adaptor for the socket on the back of the card?


There are several ways to do this.

If one or both of your monitors have a DV/I or DV/D (digital) interface, try to use those instead of VGA (analog) connectors.

Lowest cost: If your computer has a DV/I connector, you could obtain a splitter in order to connect two monitors via VGA.

If you don't have a DV/I interface on your computer, you must install a second video card into the computer. Purchase a card with dual monitor ports (one DV/I and one VGA --or -- dual DV/I).

You could also install any video card with a single monitor port.

Pc won't boot up


If the Monitor Lights change from GREEN to YELLOW then it cannot detect a signal from the Video Card. If you have a different monitor, hook it up and see if it makes a difference.
If it does get another monitor...
If it does not make a difference. Open the computer and see if the monitor cable plugs into the Motherboard directly or into a video card.
Which ever way it is try adding another video card.

You need to check what kind of video card you need, AGP, EPCI, etc...

If it has a video card in one of the slots, remove it, try another one in the same slot.
If it plugs directly into the Motherboard add a video card to the slot nearest the power supply.

*NOTE: any video card you try to install will work with your monitor without drivers,
If you install the card and turn it on you will see stuff on the screen without installing drivers.
When you install an operating system, ie: Windows, Linux, Unix, etc., then you will need
to Install drivers.

Power light flashes but monitor wont turn on


Your monitor is not receiving a signal from the computer.

First try the monitor on another computer and/or try a different monitor on this computer. If the monitor continues to have a problem, then either replace it or have it repaired. If a different monitor does not have the same problem when hooked up to this computer, then once again the monitor is bad.

If a different monitor has the same problem, then try the next few steps.

Turn off your computer, wait 5 minutes. Then remove your video card. Wait 5 more minutes (video cards take longer to drain residual charges than most other components) and then install the video card again.

Try borrowing another working video card and connect it to your sstem after removiing the current one. If you can see the text during the boot process when you turn on your computer, then your video card is bad and needs to be replaced.

If none of the above steps works, you may have a problem with a different component in your system. While off and unplugged, disconnect all expansion cards (RAM memory too) and drives with the exception of your video card and then attempt to boot your computer. if you are able to see the tex during the boot process, then some other component is bad; replace them one at a time after shutting down and unplugging your system until the problem comes back. That will be your bad part that needs to be replaced.

Does the computer beep when it starts? Does the monitor work on another pc? Possible culprits with these symptoms are the power supply and video card.
