Goto Control Panel > system > hardware > device manager and click on Monitors. Uninstall the existing one, then reboot with the monitor hooked up to the pc. Either XP will find the driver or give you the option to locate it.

Is it possible to replace the integrated ATI Radeon HD 4200 graphics card in my new computer with the NVIDIA GeForce 8500 GT graphics card from my old computer? If so, is this difficult to do?


Yes.

Windows loaded, install the Drivers for the Nvidia GeForce 8500GT graphics card, F-I-R-S-T.

If you do not have the GeForce 8500GT installation disk (CD):
This is for an Evga model. Using it as an example. Go to the graphics card manufacturer's support website, and download the drivers.

http://www.evga.com/support/download/default.aspx

To the right of - Choose a Family - click on the blue down arrow.
In the list click on - GeForce 8 Series Family

To the right of - Choose an OS - click on the blue down arrow.
Click on the Operating System you are using. (

I chose Windows XP 32-bit as an example.
There are two Drivers listed. Go with the newer one -
8-09-2011 / Driver / 280.26 /Windows XP 32bit / Download / View

When you click on Download a small window will come up on the right -
Opening 280.26-desktop-winxp-32bit-english-whql.exe

Left-click on - Save File

A small window will come up on the left.
In the heading at the top of the window, tells you where the file will download to.
Write it down.

It may have Desktop, or My Documents, or Downloads, in the wording.
(For WinXP. Vista and Win7 are different)

Desktop: The file will be on your desktop screen.

My Documents: Left-click on Start, then on My Documents

Downloads: Left-click on Start, then on My Documents. DOUBLE-click on Downloads.

When you see the file name, DOUBLE-click right on it. Follow the easy instructions of the Installation Wizard.
(Essentially just click on Next, next, and Finish, at the bottom of the windows)

When you are finished restart your computer if not asked to do so.
After Windows has run for a few minutes, turn the computer off normally.
Unplug from power. Observe Anti-Static Precautions.

Install the GeForce 8500GT graphics card. Close the computer case. Attach the monitor cable to the graphics card. Plug the computer back into power.
WAIT 1 minute, turn the computer on.

{ Note*

When a device is installed Windows breaks it's neck to find compatible drivers. If you install the graphics card F-I-R-S-T before installing it's drivers, Windows will try to match up one of it's thousands of generic drivers, OR, the drivers for the ATI Radeon HD 4200 integrated graphics.

This won't do.
A driver conflict may result.

Windows: "Which drivers do I use? These or THESE?"

You need THE drivers for the graphics card installed first. THEN physically install the graphics card.

Drivers are small pieces of software that allow the Operating System (WinXP is one example), to communicate with a device }


Anti-Static Precautions:

Your body carries Static electricity. Static WILL fry out (Short Circuit) the delicate hardware components inside a computer. De-static your body BEFORE reaching inside your computer.

Computer on a table, computer unplugged from power, computer case open.
TOUCH an unpainted surface, of the metal frame of the open computer case.
This action will relieve your body of Static electricity.

Should you leave your computer in the middle of working on it, be SURE to touch the metal frame again upon your return.

For additional questions please post in a Comment.

No signal to monitor


  1. Verify card is seated properly.
  2. Check bios settings. ie. disable onboard video, enable PNP OS installed, enable "assign IRQ to vga", disable shadowing and caching, enable passive release, enable delayed transaction, vga boot sequence: AGP, set graphics aperture size to 128MB, disable turbo modes.
  3. Verify power supply is at least 350 watts.
  4. Reboot into safe mode (press F8 right after the BIOS POST screen and before the windows loading screen) and use the program, Driver Cleaner Pro to remove Nvidia video driver remnants. Don't select all of the options, just the Nvidia driver and the plain ATI selection.
  5. Verify the monitor cable is securely connected to both the monitor and the computer.
  6. Verify that you have connected the cable to the vga port on the card and not the onboard vga port. (I'm not implying that you are dumb or anything like that, but sometimes even the best of us, overlooks the simple things... especially me! LOL)
  7. Verify the monitor cable is good.
  8. (Last but not least), try using another monitor to test. (Could be an incompatibility with the monitor.)

TV signal lost


Have you had a look at the cords? Is there any damage to the hardware itself? Maybe there is something else wrong. Tried running virus scans? I know it's a long shot but it's amazing at what viruses do to your machine.
