On Macs in particular, there's a common reason: The iMac doesn't feel compelled to match the monitor's available refresh rates. Mine threw me a few times until the monitor OSD came up and said VSYNC NOT AVAILALBLE: 40Hz. Just pick a 60Hz mode or get a monitor with better multisync capabilities, and there you are, sorted.

If not that: The card went bad with some frequency, so it could be a bad old card (usually overheated DDR;) or, like on PCs, it could be that it came unseated and just needs a nudge (replace the CMOS battery (PRAM battery in MacSpeak) while you're in there, or it'll bug you about it being 1969 on startup.)

ATI Radeon HD 4350 will not display red.


Hello,

It could be a problem with the monitor cable.

Try unplugging and re-plugging the PC to monitor cable (VGA cable)

If possible, Use a different monitor to ensure that your video card is working fine.

Can not get card to display on the monitor


Have you set your system to use a second monitor? Right click the desktop and choose Properties. In the Settings tab, click the 2nd monitor and check the box that says Extend my windows desktop onto this monitor. If that fixes it, please rate me accordingly. If not, let me know and we'll try something else.

Have you tried updating your graphics card? Go to ATI's website and try updating your video card and hopefully that solves your problem. Go to amd.com and go to ATI tab to update your driver. I forgot ATI is under AMD's umbrella
