It means that the refresh rate is set too high or too low for the monitor, you can adjust this in the system BIOS, or use the onborad graphics, right click on the screen, select properties, go to settings, advanced, and change the refresh rate from there.

I have a Dell Dimension 2400 desktop. It needs a monitor. I tried new ones from Best Buy and Office Max but they say no signal when I hook them up..I tried this computer with monitor in the following


Thank you for replying,
As per the diagnostic LED's, it is an issue with Video initialization failure. Your computer has onboard Graphics which is built into the Motherboard.
Video Initialization failure could happen if there is :
Unseated AGP card
Bad AGP card
Bad motherboard

As per your Svc Tag your system doesn't have AGP Graphics Card, Probable issue with MOBO.
This computer doesn't have a AGP Slot (Graphics Card Slot) to try connecting Graphics Card.
Need to repair/replace MOBO.

Thanks.

When i install my ATi radeon HD 4650 AGP card on motherboard the monitor does not boot. But when i connect the monitor cable to the onboard video card it boots well. Why


Depending on the OS you are running. Check to make sure that the device drivers were installed correctly while plugged in to the on board.

To do this on Windows:
open Device Manager by right clicking My Computer and clicking properties. From there you can click Device Manager (if on XP click on Hardware Tab).

Once there, you should see a selection that reads Display Adapterslogicaldemen.jpg

If it is installed correctly it should look like the one above (substituting in the ATI card)
If you see it and it has an ! or flag you need to update or install the drivers which you can get from http://support.amd.com/us/psearch/Pages/psearch.aspx?type=2.4.1&product=2.4.1.3.37&contentType=GPU+Download+Detail&ostype=&keywords=&items=20

Hope this helps

Pc won't boot up


If the Monitor Lights change from GREEN to YELLOW then it cannot detect a signal from the Video Card. If you have a different monitor, hook it up and see if it makes a difference.
If it does get another monitor...
If it does not make a difference. Open the computer and see if the monitor cable plugs into the Motherboard directly or into a video card.
Which ever way it is try adding another video card.

You need to check what kind of video card you need, AGP, EPCI, etc...

If it has a video card in one of the slots, remove it, try another one in the same slot.
If it plugs directly into the Motherboard add a video card to the slot nearest the power supply.

*NOTE: any video card you try to install will work with your monitor without drivers,
If you install the card and turn it on you will see stuff on the screen without installing drivers.
When you install an operating system, ie: Windows, Linux, Unix, etc., then you will need
to Install drivers.

Dell Dimension 5100 won't start with new FireMV 2400 PCI Express video card


Did you check to make sure the video card is installed in the right spot? Has the onboard video card been disabled in Windows - and when you say it will not boot, do you mean physically no POST. Do you get any error codes? If you can get into the CMOS (Bios) Setup screen - change the primary display adapter from the onboard to AGP, PCI, or PCI-E depending on which card that is. Use this information at your own risk - hope it helps.

Ethernet Drivers for Compaq Evo for XP


http://downloadcenter.intel.com/Product_Filter.aspx?ProductID=998

This should work.

And just to add that your system specs are really old and you should think about upgrading. 128 mb ram upgradable to 2 gigs.

Integrated 4x agp graphics...you should be able to install a new agp graphics card.

Or you should buy a new computer if you dont know how to build your own which can be tricky and expensive if you cant reuse many parts.
