Have you tried installing the latest driver for your card to see if it resolves the issue? Also do you see the error message that says something like "The graphics card has recovered from a display error" in the system tray? Pleas provide this info so that I can help you out.

Sai.

What could cause my VIDEO CARD to fail?


This could be a simple failure of your video card. However, I had this happen and found out it was a heat sink that had come loose from my motherboard. (Heat sinks are the aluminum blocks, with fins, on top of CPUs on your motherboard, or on advanced graphic cards.)

Cannot get lcd screen to work-it's white seems the graphic flex cord is lose or bad


Hook a spare monitor to the video output to ensure there is no problem with the video card, if okay! the lcd display in the laptop is the issue. If the flex cord is loose reseat it back into the motherboard plugin it should be good and tight to work properly.

PB Minos GP2W screen has coloured lines fades white then black


Most likely it's graphic card problem, but also may be monitor itself. First, check the signal by connecting to TV (if yours has a PC input), then replace card if that shows the same.

A 20" monitor gets a black screen when turned on


sounds like you might have a back lighting issue? take a flash light and shine it on the monitor when it is black and look to see if the image is there but not lit up, if this is the case then you might need to change the light balist in the monitor of even the back lights themselfs..
if the picture is fuzzy for a long period of time then you have a controler card issue there is a controler card in the monitor that changes the image coming in from HDMI, VGA, DVI into the binary that the vertical and horizontal drivers use to show you the image onthe screen... hope this info helps. good luck

When monitor power button is pressed, a small white image appears and alternates briefly between an alalog and digital icon in black then the screen goes blank, no color.


My issue is similar.. however after trying a couple of times it will work. (yes everything is plugged in) It will function for a good 10 minutes before just powering off (blackout) screen.
If you attempt to turn it on after it blacking out, the blue led for the power button will blink a couple of times and it will remain off.
However if you wait 5-10 minutes and turn it back on, it will repeat itself...

I have it hooked up to a radeon X1650 graphics controller as a secondary digital controller, and its hooked up by VGA cable.

I also have two other displays besides this one (one primary and extended that dont have any issues whatsoever.. they continue to function while the syncmaster 193p takes its time snoozing.... please help.

No visual display


It sounds like your graphics card is shot. If your graphics card is a dedicated graphics card, you might be able to get it fixed/replaced; if it is embedded, then you are probably going to have to buy a whole new display screen.

Have installed the card, (not sure if correct?)


The problem may reside in the monitor being used, rather than the display card. Older monitors are incapable of displaying resolutions or frame rates beyound their maximum.

INNO3D 8800GT OC OVERCLOCKED EDITION (FAULTY)


This may not be much of a solution but it seems odd that a video card would have some white lines gong across the screen. I would say its a driver error or the monitor is busted. Only way to tell is if another monitor is used on the system.

Sharp XR10X Screen size


depending on the age of your computer, some of the older video cards in XP only will allow you to show video in 600x800 resolution. When you want to show video go ahead and change both of your display properties (both the primary and the secondary) to 600x800. See if that works.

If that is not what you are refering to go right click on your desktop and look for the properties or settings of your graphics card. it may say graphics properties . In that area there will be tons of options like (when showing video only show it on the secondary monitor) play around with the different settings on your graphics card.
Good luck
