    Laptops have video adapters integrated onto the motherboard, but still require drivers to be installed. Please list brand of laptop and model name or #, and let me know if this started happening AFTER you installed a piece of software or driver set. Once I have this I can assist you further.

Can't reinstall my msi graphics driver


Try booting in to Safe Mode. F8 at startup, choose Safe mode with networking. Try to install it this way. I checked to see if this card had any extras and it doesn't - Just the card and software / drivers.
If safe mode doesn't work and the system does the same as it does in standard windows mode - Then try another slot. You system could have taken damage in the process of your install or your video card software could be out of date. Safe mode will allow you to download the most current compatible drivers for your card.

Hope this helps..

If the system works properly in "Safe Mode" the problem is with your drivers. Try and update the drivers by downloading them from the manufacturers website. Although, having looked at the spec, it could just be that you are not using the supplied monitor adaptors to run your display. Try it that way and see. Good luck.

these cards do require that additional power be given to them from the power supply. Have you connected the card to your PC power supply via the 3 pin connector and power connector.

Also uninstall the driver via safe mode and let it redetect in normal mode then install the latest drivers for your card. Download from ati.com

Adaptor settings


Take out the video adaptor that you have installed and see if you can boot up with only the on-board video, first in standard mode and then if it won't work, try the safe mode..

Did you change any other settings?

Also, when you had the video card installed, did you disable the onboard video?

Ati Radeon 9000 video card driver


It could be related to the display resolution settings. If you can boot into "VGA mode", that should get you started.

try pressing f8 before you see the win xp logo with the scrolling green bar. Select Safe-Mode and press the enter key. This will bring you into safe-mode. If you can boot into safe mode then try going to the device manager and uninstalling the drivers. After that reboot and let windows use the default graphics card drivers. Then go to the manufacturer website and download the latest drivers.

Primary display issue


Hello,

Try going to Windows Safe Mode. You do this by pressing the F8 key repeatedly exactly after you hear your computer beep when it is rebooting. This should bring you to a screen that will have 3 Safe Modes listed, choose just plain Safe Mode by using your arrow keys to highlight Safe Mode and press enter. Once in Safe Mode, a box will come up asking you if you intended to enter Safe Mode, click Yes. You should now see your desktop, however it will look larger, and with less colors. This is normal.

If this mode did not allow you to get into windows, then reboot, press F8 like before and select Enable VGA Mode instead.

Now that you hopefully have a desktop, try this link which will take you to a video that will walk you through the process of setting up your DualView monitors. Also, note that there are some check boxes that allow you to select which monitor you want to be the primary.

I realize this video is specific Windows 2000, but the process is the same for Windows XP.

Hope this helps and Good luck!
