Question about Computers & Internet
My monitor stays completely black when I turn on the computer. I switched out the monitor with my other monitor (which works perfectly on my other computer) and had the same problem--black screen. Is the video card bad? I believe the video is built-in. Can I buy a video card and put it in one of the two open PCI slots?
i turned my computer off one night before bed as usual, the next morning when i turned it back on, everything came on, but my moniter's orange light never turned green, So i hooked the minitor to my other computer and it worked perfectly, So i bought a G-force MX 4000 vidio card and installed it in my AGPro port and I still dont get nothing, And i just had a new mother board put in my computer not even 3 weeks ago by a service tech,could you please help me solve this problem? I have a 15 inch. flat screen made by Magnavox, And my computer is a e Machine T3410.
I fear the problem is with the motherboard. I have came across many boards (same model) iwth same problem,. tech support a bios update will solve the problem.

My goodness.. you have spent a lot in your computer i think.. i dont think changing mother board and installing a new vedio card will solve this problem.
as u have said that u have installed a new card make sure that you are giving the connections of your monitor to the gforce card and not to the mother board again.
if connection for monitor is going for gforce properly your RAM is the problem. as per your configuration its single 512mb ram. i would advice you to go and get another DDR RAM(same 512 prefrably) from any of your friend and put it in you mother board in by removing the normal RAM you had.
this will work for sure i think.
if this is not working dont rate me in-approtiate. i just triend my best. sorry and tahnks.. good luck

Go to the BIOS in Advanced - Chipset
Change the Graphic Adapter Priority setting.
