No display but the computer turns on.

could be an issue with the graphics controller or with the monitor. first, verify if the monitor is actually working. try it on another computer or video source. if it works, make sure that you have a working video cable and check to make sure the video input source (dvi, vga, rgb, hdmi.. etc) selected on your monitor is the correct one that you are using. if you have ruled out the monitor, video source and cables, you can then test if another monitor will work with the computer. if same thing happens, meaning nothing on display even the manufacturer or BIOS screen does not show up when you turn on the computer, it is most likely the video controller. you may either get the motherboard replaced or install an add-in video card if the integrated video controller only has one video connector.

My dell gx260 ligth come green if i turn it on but for a few mins time it turn orange why

Do you mean the monitor's power light starts green and then turns orange when you turn it on? Most monitors will go to a power saving mode when they do not get a signal from the computer.

The Dell GX260 has a green power light when on. When the computer is off, the light is off. If it is green and blinking, then the computer is in a power saving mode.

Diagnosis: start with the obvious: is the monitor cable plugged into both the computer and the monitor (if not permanently connected to the monitor)? Are you connected to the active port? (You can add a video graphics card in most desktops. The motherboard video port usually needs to be disabled to use the card ports. If you plug in the monitor cable to the disabled port, it won't work.) Is the monitor set to the correct input? (This applies if the monitor has several ports. In that case, there will be a Source or Input button on the monitor.) Is the computer on? The GX260 has the power button on the front. (Other computers have the power button on the top.) There is also the power supply switch on the back which needs to be on.

Next try a different data cable between the monitor and the computer (if you can). Try a different monitor. If a second monitor works, than the monitor has a damaged main board. If the second monitor doesn't work, then the video graphics adapter has probably failed. Replace the add-on card, if in use, then boot in the safe mode to remove the old graphics driver. Then install the correct driver for the graphics adapter.

Note: the computer and the monitor should both be off when you connect the cables. Then turn on the monitor first and set it to the correct source before turning on the computer.)

I hope this helps.

if windows does not have the correct driver for the graphics card the resolution may be stuck at a "safe" setting, try downloading and installing a graphics driver, if the graphics card is very old and its maximum resolution actually is 640x480 there is no way other than replacing the card to achieve a higher resolution

Before you get a new graphics card, you should check the monitor and vga cable first. Make sure the vga cable is securely attached to the monitor and the video port on the computer. The next step is to replace the cable and see if that makes a difference. If not, try to substitute a known good monitor. If all this fails, you could have a corrupted video driver. You can go to the device manager, find your video display adapter, and update the driver. Lastly, if you're comfortable opening the computer case, check to be sure the video card is completely plugged in to the slot (with computer turned off!). Only after these steps would I consider getting a new video card.

Do we need a new graphics card for a monifor that is going to sleep? The monitor (an HP that came with the computer) doe not work and wonder if a new card will correct the problem.

Hi there,

Your monitor does not have graphics origination hardware so much as input recognition of the video card in your computer tower.

Borrow a monitor from a friend and see if your computer displays normally on it. If it does, you need a new monitor. If it doesn't, your computer needs a new video card or has other motherboard issues.

It's just that simple.

Best Regards

Added a ge force 8400 gs pci grfx card to hp a6120n monitor

Alright, let's give this a shot. Your system can handle it as the card only needs 71W of power.

Right-click your desktop and go to properties.


Afterward select the tab at the top reading, "Settings."


Now select your new video card in the, "Display" region and choose the device to be your, "Primary Monitor."


Afterward try plugging the monitor into your new graphics card. It should work just fine.

Graphics card removal

Unplug your computer, open the CPU and remove the old graphics card (the one where you attach your monitor cable) and replace with your new graphics card. Handle the card by the edges and avoid touching the sensitive electrical components. Insert it fully to the card slot (a loose video card will prevent your monitor from working). Once the computer prompts you that you need the driver for it, just insert the CD that comes with the model of your new graphics card and follow the directions.

You must uninstall the drivers of your old card before installing the new card and drivers.
Also make sure the BIOS is set to automatically check what you are using, onboard video (if available) or graphics card.
