After installing new ATI HD4670 video card I boot system hear no beeps computer powers on but screen is black


Hello,
I assume you have the driver for the new video card if not you can download it from ATI website.
Try booting the computer in the safe mode and remove the driver of the old card, restart the computer and install the driver for your new video card.
You can also put the old video card back and remove its driver then install the new video card and driver.
Best of luck to you.

Tip

INSTALLING A VIDEO CARD


Before getting started
  1. Difficulty of installing computer video card should be a 2 out of 5.
  2. Write down important information from the top or bottom of the card such as the Model Number, Serial Number and specifications.
  3. Ensure you are familiar with ESD and its potential dangers.
  4. When physically installing the video card, ensure the computer is powered down and unplugged.
  5. Finally, verify that the computer has an available AGP slot and/or PCI slot for the video card. If you are planning on taking out your previous video card to install the new video card ensure that the slot will be compatible with your video card. Some computer cases have a proprietary AGP slot causing only certain video cards to be compatible with the computer.
Set Jumpers
While today most Video Cards are configured or setup through either software or through Plug-n-Play, if your Video Card has jumpers verify that the jumpers are properly set. The jumpers generally determine the IRQ resource settings.
Additional information about resource settings can be found on our resource page.
Install into Expansion slot
Today, Video cards are capable of connecting into a PCI or AGP slot. Locate an available slot within the computer and gently push the card into the slot until it snaps and holds place. Once the card is in the slot, place a screw into the top of the card to hold the card into position.
Additional information about the computer bus or expansion slots can be found on ourcomputer hardware bus page.
BIOS setup
Once the Video Card has been successfully physically installed into the computer, place the case back onto the computer and connect the keyboard, monitor and power to the computer (we recommend that you do not connect all the cables yet, if problems are experienced you may have to disconnect all the cables again).
If your computer has an on-board video card, determine if the Video card can be disabled through BIOS. Turn the computer back on and as it begins booting, enter BIOS setup. If this option is not present in BIOS we recommend your review documentCH000193.
Additional help and information about the BIOS can be found on our BIOS page.
Software setup
After the card has been installed, your video card should have included software drivers for your operating system.
If the video card did not include drivers or the drivers appear not to work, you can find a listing of drivers on our video card driver page.

I AM REPLACEING THE VIDEO CARD NEED TO NO WITCH ONE TP DISABLE BEFORE I REMOVE THE VIDEO CARD TO INSTALL THE NEW ONE


Before disabling the video card, restart the computer and enter the BIOS settings. Often there is also a setting in BIOS on newer boards that allows the user to set either a PCI card or AGP card as the primary video device. Make sure this is set to your video card, which in your case would be PCI-E Automatic. Power down the computer, plug the VGI cable into the new graphics card and turn the computer on. You should be up and running in a matter of seconds. If you don't have video, turn the computer off by holding the power button in until the computer shuts down. Remove the new card and return VGI cable to original location. Restart the computer and use the driver installation disk that came with the new card. Install the drivers. Shut down the computer and try again with the new card.
NOTE: With the BIOS settings to PCI-E Automatic, the computer will check if a card is installed in the PCI-E slot before going to the integrated graphics. Do not remove the drivers for the integrated graphics, you may need to reuse it at a later time.

I need to install a video card on a Sony VAIO VPC-EA36FM. I need instructions., video, etc.


Instructions
    • 1

      Make sure that you have the latest drivers from the manufacturer of your new video card.

    • 2

      Remove the video drivers for the current video card. Check the Start menu for any Remove utilities specifically for the current video card.

  • 3 Remove the current video card in the Device Manager. Now you're ready to install the new video card.

  • 4 Turn off the computer and disconnect it from the power source.
  • 5 Follow directions from the computer's user manual to open the case. In most cases, you'll just remove a side panel.
  • 6 Locate the AGP video slot. If there is a video card in it, remove the video card.
  • 7 Orient the new video card so that the metal bracket lines up with an open slot in the back of your computer and the gold contacts on the video card line up with the opening in the AGP connector.
  • 8 Push the new video card into the AGP slot with steady, gentle pressure.
  • 9 Connect any power cables to the power supply.
  • 10 Secure the video card in place with a screw through the card bracket into the computer case.
  • 11 Close up the case, following the computer manual's instructions.
  • 12 Reattach the power cord, monitor cable, keyboard and mouse.
  • 13 Power up your computer. Windows will detect the new video card and ask if you want to install it now. Click "OK" or "Yes."
  • 14 If prompted, direct Windows to the directory where the video drivers are located. Follow the prompts to install the drivers for the new video card.

    Video problem


    The problem may be with the video card driver software on your computer. If your video card came with your computer, visit the computer manufacturer's support website, type in your model number, and download and install the listed video drivers. If you purchased your video card separately or after you bought your computer, or if it is a custom build, go instead to the website of your video card's manufacturer and download and install the drivers specific to that card.

    Dell gx270 not communicating with monitor. self test feature check is floating on monitor


    This is a self check for the monitor. This self test means that the monitor is not getting a signal from your computer. Have you installed any video cards in this computer?

    If its onboard video meaning you never installed a video card then your video card is bad. Try purchasing a video card and installing it in the computer and your problem should be fixed. I hope this helps you. Any other questions feel free to ask thanks.

    My desktop gateway 3 series does not have a video card.....I would like to add one....is it hard to do so ??I want to buy a geforce 9600 or greater...


    It is not so difficult as it seems to be.
    First ensure that your computer meets the system requirement for installing a particular Video Card. You can get these details on the box of that card.
    Once you are ready with all the details and the compatible card, follow the instructions as under:

    1. Turn off your computer and disconnect the power chord
    2. Open the Cover of your computer Tower.
    3. Disconnect the monitor cable from the Onboard VGA
    4. Locate the compatible card slot.
    5. GEForce 9600 would require a pci express slot
    6. Match the notch on the card with the Card slot and insert the card with a slight push.
    7. Fix the card to cabinet with a screw on top
    8. Connect the Monitor cable to the newly installed Video card
    9. Close the cover
    10. Connect the Power cable
    11. Restart the computer
    12. Your operating system will detect the new Video card and prompt you for drivers
    13. Installed the necessary drivers from the CD provided with the Video card
    14. Finish the installation and reboot the system
    That's it you have a new Video card installed !!

    Please let me know if you need any further help in regards to this.

    Dell Optiplex GX620 not recognizing PCIe video cards


    Hello,

    One of two things could be doing this:

    1: Bad Video Cards
    2: Bad PCIe slot(s)

    If avaliable, I would test the video cards on a PC with a PCIe slot to verirfy if the cards are good/bad. If they work, your PCIe slot is bad and need to have the motherboard replace to correct.

    Good Luck
