Question about Graphics Cards

2 Answers

No Display All of sudden I cant anything to display on my monitor.  I tried a different pc to the same monitor thinking that it was the monitor but it works fine. The power and fans do run on the pc but I am not sure what it could be?  Would I have to replace my video card?  If so how would I do this since its all connected directly on the motherboard?

We have an almost three year old HP pavilion but suddenly the monitor stopped displaying the information from the computer. We think it's a graphic card issue but the BX where we purchased it didn't want...

First Remove the VGA cable from your pc backside and turn on the monitor alone and you should find some message that VGA cable unplugged or VGA not found like that... If it comes then the monitor is ok...

Then power on the pc and you should find out the harddrive's red led will blinking and you will get also one beep then it will ok,
if it is really problem with graphics card or display issue, you should get some beep codes continuously (2 or 3 beep sounds)

Lines running down screen - have tried different monitors and same problem - have changed ram over and problem persists - am thinking it either display driver or graphics card

If you have not made any changes to your system and the problem has surfaced apparently without cause, the graphics card is the most likely suspect.

However, when troubleshooting, go back to check any actions you may have initiated just prior to the appearance of the problem.

For example, if you have relocated or reconnected monitors (or cables were stretched) just prior to the problem, check the port on the graphics card for bent pins. If you just updated a driver, remove it. If you have experimented with display settings in Windows control panel or just replaced a graphics card, check Display Properties - Settings, particularly the screen refresh rate in advanced settings (reduce refresh rate).

Any of these issues can cause the symptoms you describe, in addition to failed graphics cards and faulty drivers.

Problem with a video card

Try reseating the card. (With the computer unplugged, remove the card from it's slot and plug it back in again. Do this about 5 times in a row.) Thiswill clean the contacts. If it still fails, try a different monitor to see if that is the problem. If you have access, try a different card. This way you can determine the failing component.

Secondary monitor from a Laptop

If your laptop doesn't automatically detect the external monitor, there will be a function key you need to press to activate the external monitor connector. It's often on the top row of keys, but different manufacturers put their function keys wherever they like. The key will normally have a marking that looks like a little monitor screen. Connect your external monitor, hold down the F or Fn key and press the monitor key when you find it. Usually the first press will turn on the external monitor and turn off the laptop screen, then the second press turns the laptop screen back on. Some brands or models may not turn off the laptop display, though.

Multiple display problem

Hello. Your driver software was 71.6MB large. It not only included the driver software but secondary software for you to control & setup dual monitors. The package came with a HDMI connector which is used to connect the HDMI femal port to VGA port, if the monitor does not have a HDMI male port. Currently the reason you can not see your display is because the signal comming out of the video card is set to the other port on the card. Once you switch to the other port you'll have display on your monitor. Open control panel, than open display. Display Properties will open on your desktop. Click settings than click advanced. You should see another tab that reads something like, NVIDIA® nView Multi-Display Technology. (I'm guessing because I only use ATI's software) I can't load your driver software on my current system. The two cards may be different but the software is similar. This Nvidia tab is where you set up your monitor or monitors. Once in this advanced portion for your video card you can set which connector from the video card will display on what monitor. There will also be a ton of settings you can adjust, from color to 3D & other options. You must have an icon by your clock as well that allows you to open the standard display properties or the advanced display properties.
