Question about Computers & Internet
I have a Dell Monitor connected directly to Motherboard in my system and am not using any display cards. I wan to load a display driver & directX.
What operating system do you use? When you boot up your computer, can you see anything on the screen.
If you can, just load the drivers for the monitor from the CD when you boot into windows.
If you can't see anything, you need to connect a different monitor or there is possible issues with the video adapter built into your motherboard.

and got to www.google.com In the google search box type: "IBM
Support" or "Lenovo Support" (without the quotes and put your manufacturer name before Support).
Look for downloads and drivers. Enter your model number and operating
system when requested. Download and install the Video drivers.
you are saying that the system boots up and everything seems to be
running except the screen is blank then try the steps below.
Shine a flashlight on the dark screen to see if you barely
see the icons on the desktop. If so, then the LCD Inverter is bad.
Plug in an external monitor and see if the display shows up on it. It can be any kind of monitor even the old big fat crt monitors as long as it has a vga cable to connect to your computer's vga port. If so that proves your video card is ok. The video will show on most systems when you reboot without you having to do anything. Some systems will require you to hit the FN (Function key) + F1 thru F12. Hold down the FN key then hit the correct key for displaying on the monitor (F1 thru F12). The correct key will normally have CRT/LCD on it or it will have the icon of a display.
If you see no icons by shinning a flash light and the external monitor works, then your screen is bad. If you see no icons by shinning the flash light and nothing shows on the external monitor, then most likely your video card is bad.
