Sounds like your graphics are built into the motherboard. Add new card & attach the monitor to the new card. If the computer boots, go into device manager in Windows and disable the on-board graphics.

Hmmm..old card should just remove with one screw along back panel, unless it's the embedded version

go to control panel, system, device manager, and let me know what it says under audio devices.

My monitor will not turn on.


To determine if the problem is the monitor or the video card you need to unplug the video cable from the monitor so that it is not getting any signal from computer. Then try the menu buttons on the front of the monitor to determine if you can see the menu come up. If the menu appears it means the boards and LCD is functioning properly and that the issue is with the video source or cable. If it doesnt it means that the LCD is bad. These are backlt LCD's, meaning they use a light behind the actual picture so that it controls the brightness. Think of an old slide projector or light through a stained glass window. If the backlight is out its not worth fixing and you should consider purchasing a new monitor. This model often does have a backlight burn out after a few year service. They are not as durable as the old CRT monitors. If you do see the MENU then you need to test other options. If you can obtain a different cable and the one you are using is detachable from the monitor then try a new cable. If you still dont get any picture at this point it is safe to assume your video output is bad. Not sure which computer you have, but usually in todays computers the video card is part of the motherboard and not seperate. If yours is seperate you can try reseating it in teh PCI slot. You will need to open your computer case for this. Google PCI slot for your model and then images, it will show you what area to look. You cant replace the video card ON the motherboard if its there... but you can put a NEW one in via the PCI slot. Video cards range in price and if the computer didnt give you any issues I would start with another monitor from a friend to verify video card works or doesnt before replacing. Im 90% sure this is the monitor based on your statement and 10% possible video card.

I have a sony vaio pc with a p 450-vx mother board, the darn thing won't boot up the mother board light is on and the fans come on light on front is amber. Oh yeah I,ve changed out video cards.


if the screen comes on for a few seconds and then goes to sleep mode you probably have not installed the drivers for the new video card correctly. you should shut down computer, replace the new card with the old one, put in the disk with the drivers for the new card, install the new drivers and then shutdn and replace the old with the new and reboot. this should solve the problem. please rate me and thanks for choosing enterprise computing solutions..

My micro sd card doesnt work


probably your memory card has had it...if it will let you reformat it, re-install flash card drivers and chuck a few games on and see what happens...also check inside card slot and make sure all the contact pins look nice and straight. if you can also just try a new memory card in the meantime to put your mind at rest concerning the problem coming from the ds...highly unlikely.

I bought a video card 8J329, it doesnt match orig. mount


There are 3 types of "mounts" to put your video card in. PCI-express is the newest and fastest, AGP is the 2nd and PCI coming in last. None of them are interchangeable. If your new card doesnt match up to the slot available on your motherboard, then you will have to either return your card, or replace your motherboard, which woul likely include replacing your processor and ram, so if at all possible, see if you can exchange your card.
Check out this picture to see which slot you have.

On board video...


The BIOS will most likely be set to auto detect, when you physically install the new card the BIOS should detect it and auto disable the onboard video.
