    Hey there Oli53, There are several things I would need to know in order to help you. Your PC has a longer model Number than you have provided. I will need the whole Model number, the name and model number of the video card, and the interface type: ie PCI-E, AGP, or PCI.

Consult your Motherboard book and check which Video interface card is supported by the motherboard. I suggest ,as a gamer , 256 MB Geforce,but that all depnds on why you are installing the card in the first place.

After installing new ATI HD4670 video card on my Gateway zx6810 I boot system hear no beeps computer powers on but screen is black


Is this new video card the only video source on the PC (i.e. there is no other VGA connections on the PC)?

Without knowing the make and model of the PC, I will list the most common issue when replacing the video card in a PC.

1. Connect the monitor to each available VGA connection and boot the computer - to see if any VGA output is working

2. When you find a working VGA output, go into BIOS and change the VIDEO settings to either allow BOTH the onboard and add in video OR allow the add in video only. Save the changes and turn the computer off.

3. Move the video cable to the add in video card, turn the computer on and see if the BIOS is using the new Video card

System will not turn on


If you are certian the pc is powered on, check the video card and any new card that has been added to the pc. If you have a video card installed, remove all other cards and retry your boot. If you still have no video, replace the card. If the video connection is on the board and you and have added a new video card, use the "old" connection to open your operating system and configure the video setting to use the new card and change connection.
Good Luck,

How i can connect the tv as my computer moniter

Does your TV have a "VGA" input? If so, then connect the VGA-output from your computer's video-card to that VGA-input.

Does your TV have a "DVI" input? If so, then connect the DVI-output from your computer's video-card to that DVI-input.

Does your TV have a "S-Video" input? If so, then connect the S-VIdeo-output from your computer's video-card to that S-Video-input.

Note that only _SOME_ video-cards have DVI output or S-Video output. Check your video-card.

Where is the video card located and what does it look like

There are two type of video adapters, a card type and integrated.

Integrated is when it is part of the motherboard. Card type is when it is a expansion card that is installed onto the motherboard.

Easiest way to tell which you have is by where you connect your monitor to your computer. If you connect by all your USB connections, mouse/keyboard connections then it is can not replace it unless you replace the motherboard.

If you connect your monitor further away from the above mentioned, then you are most likely using a card type of video card. Here is a picture of what an installed video card would look like. The video card is the part that has the "small" fan on it. The left side of the picture is the back of the computer.

Here is a picture of an uninstalled video card.

Hope this helps you.

Dell Optiplex GX620 not recognizing PCIe video cards


One of two things could be doing this:

1: Bad Video Cards
2: Bad PCIe slot(s)

If avaliable, I would test the video cards on a PC with a PCIe slot to verirfy if the cards are good/bad. If they work, your PCIe slot is bad and need to have the motherboard replace to correct.

Good Luck

My video connection does not work monitor says "no signal." I checked all connetions and they's properly connected.

Check to make sure you have correct ram installed in motherboard as the video card may share that ram. Check CPU that it's installed correctly and video should work. If not then the motherboard is bad.

Pb not seeing my new video card

The 9600 video card, I am fairly sure, has a connection on the card itself for power. Have you maybe fogotten to connect the power supply to the video card? If not , try reseating the video card.  A third possibality.. Some MB, if they have on board video, require you to turn off the "on board video" in order for it to use (see) the New PCI video card. Hope this helps.

Monitor problem

Hello soltaino, your board (K7VT2), did not come with a video card. (New). If you have a video card in your PC it was added. I'll need to know the name of the card to advise you regarding a cable to connect to the monitor. My guess is it's like the pictures listed below.
The Asrock does have an AGP 4x video slot. If your board has a video card installed it's connector would connect to a standard VGA connector at both the monitor & at the video card.
Whick looks like this.
The picture above shows a female VGA port, (like on a monitor).

b9662ed.jpg See the bue cable. That's a standard SVGA cable connector.
If you can not connect to the PC you need a new video card, not a new monitor.
Suggest this card. It has both VGA & DVI connectores.

Best Regards!

Video card

actually your computer is working on the onboard video adapter.

1. connect first the monitor to the onboard video card.( do not remove the connected geforce video card.)
2. switch on the computer and press "F2" on new model computer, "Delete" on old model computer.
so that you can enter to bios setup.
3. if bios setup is open; try to find the "AGP bridge configuration"
(some other bios AGP B C is in chipset) by arrow up,down,side left and right) enter.
4. Find " primary graphics adapter"
5. In there, select : If Video card is "pci" connected ; select "pci"
If Video card is "AGP" connected ; select "AGP"
6. press F10 to save and exit the setup.
7. after saving the configuration, disconnect power cord and transfer the monitor to the video card (Gforce). and then connect the ac power cord and then start. or switch on the computer.

Note: be sure to install the drivers of your GFORCE for optimum performance of the card.

hope this help.
