You might be able to boot Windows in Safe mode (F5 at startup). In this mode WIndows uses a basic VGA driver. From there you can change the video driver to the appropriate one for your monitor. If you are unable to see video even before Windows startup, you may need to check the monitor on another computer to be sure it's working properly.

Plugged in my emachine LE1938 to my dell without the DVI cable, screen displays 'no signal'. Shouldn't the monitor work without the DVI cable?


The DVI cable transports the display signal from the video card to the monitor.

I think what Ron is asking is if you used a different cable to connect the monitor to the computer. (I'm assuming you used an old 15 pin monitor cable or whatever those old cables were?)

Without getting into your BIOS:

So on your computer, you probably have an onboard video card (a video card built into the motherboard itself), and a dedicated video card (probably where you're seeing the DVI out).

It may be possible that you have the on board video card (with the traditional connection) disabled, when the dedicated video card is plugged in.

This isn't rocket science, so don't worry. Phillips head screwdriver is all you need.

Pull the side panel off your computer (assuming it's a tower... if not, it's the top panel). Once you have it off, you'll see that video card plugged into a slot on the motherboard, with 1 phillips head screw holding it in place (inside, near the back, where the DVI port is).

Pull the screw, and the video card should come out. From there, the BIOS should recognize your card is missing, and thus revert to using the onboard video card.

Greetings, I have a Gateway 832Gm Media Center PC, I want to add a Radeon HD 5550 graphics card to get the ability to get dual monitor support. My question is do I disable the chipset via the bios or can...


Hi,
Most likely what you will want to do is just turn your resolution down to it's lowest settings. and turn off unplug the computer and install the card. Plug the monitor into the card and then boot up the computer. Sometimes depending on the computer you may have to disable the onboard video in the bios but a lot of times you don't. If you do run into an issue you can unplug the card hook the monitor back up the onboard video, then if need be disable the onboard driver, by going to control panel, then system properties, then device manager and then under video adapter disable the drivers for the onboard video but it shouldn't be necessary.
Thank you,
Lee

Problem with onboard video of a compaq sr2032x


The onboard video card is actually set to secondary when you plug in a PCI or PCI-E video card. If no video image is showing then there may be further damage inside the mother board.

Got a flickering in my video, installed brand new Video card. No change. Unplugged everything, except monitor (I meam mouse & all). Still flickers Monitor Acer AL2017


I had this problem once. Turned out to be the VGA plug connecting to the computer. Make sure this is inserted at the computer properly. Wiggle the plug and see if that effects the monitor display. If it does, then replace the VGA lead. Also check that your video card is inserted properly and go into the BIOS on your computer and make sure that the onboard Video chip is disabled (if your motherboard has one). If all this doesnt correct the fault, try uninstalling and installing the video driver again. If you are still having problems you may have a faulty video card.

How do i disable the onboard video so i can install a video card


Depending on what type of computer you have there's several options but the easiest route would be this....

1) Turn your computer completely off and on.
2) When the computer is booting up look for "SETUP" or "ENTER SETUP" and press whatever key is required. (Doing this will take you into BIOS)
3) When you are in BIOS just look around for "Onboard Video:Enabled" and change it to "Disabled"
4) Save your settings and turn your computer off.
5) Install new video card.

If you have any other questions feel free to ask.

All I have is a PCI video card not an express. how do i get the board to display on the screen with my video card. I cant see the bios


Is there an onboard video to this motherboard? If so hook up your monitor to that first and go into the BIOS to disable the onboard so when you restart it should go to your PCI Video card.

The monitor doesn't go on. the orange standby light blinks on and off. is there a reset?


Sounds like the issue is with your video card/onboard video chip or the connection between the monitor and the pc. Verify the cable from the monitor is connected to the pc firmly & snugly. See if the monitor gets a picture on a known working pc. If so, then it's a (relatively) simple fix - work on the videocard - if add-in, try reloading drivers, ensure the onboard video is disabled in the BIOS, or (worst case) replace the video card. If it's onboard, again, try replacing/updating drivers and, if that fails your next step is to either get an add-in video card, or replace the mobo.

Monitor wont work


You were not very clear with your question. If you mean you have disabled your onboard video, then installed the new video card and get nothing then the card is not compatible with your system OR you got a bad card. If you mean you simply installed the card, turn on your computer and get nothing until you move your monitor plug back to the original port (without turning off the computer) then you must disable your onboard video by going into your BIOS settings. Follow the instructions that came with your video card or your computer to do that. Usually you get in by pressing delete or F2 while the computer boots.
