Please uninstall the newly installed video card before further damage. There must be hardware conflict. Also make sure you've disabled the onboard video card. This mostly happens when we install incompatible graphics/video cards. It can make your system unstable. Uninstall the hardware and the driver, read the manufacturers user manual carefully and check the compatibility. If you have problem how to check out the compatibility issues, please let me know. Good luck. Thanks for using FixYa.

Try removing your video card if it is and add on card and not on board restart you computer after you have removed it not forgetting to enter setup and tell it to look for the on board video not the add on card and connecting the monitor to the correct VGA port for your on board video. Allow windows to load fully and configure the on board video then once this is complete shut down your PC re install your video card after doing so power up your system enter Bios once again change the setting back to look for the add on video card usually automatic, Save and exit if screen is still black after windows has loaded connect monitor to the add on video card as it has configured it back to the rightful settings. If your computer loads to windows on the on board videos right click enter properties and change back to the add on card and connect cable after confirmation as screen will go black and you should be seeing everything you should have prior to the problem arising. If this does not work then it could be a worst case scenario that your video card has malfunctioned and needs replacing/repairs if able to be usually not though unless it is a big dollar card that is upgradable. If all else fails try to use the windows repair feature to repair the installation of windows. I hope this helps

We are trying to load modern warfare 2 and I am getting a message Error during initialization: Video card or driver doesn't support UBYTE4N vertex data. What are some options?


1. Look online for the newest device-driver for your video-card.

2. Purchase a new "high-end" video-card, remove the old video-card, install the new video-card, and load the device-drivers from the CD-ROM that came with the new video-card.

3. Don't try to load the "Modern Warfare 2" software.

MY DELL DIMENSION E521 WONT BOOT WINDOWS AFTER STARTING UP, I WAS TOLD THAT THE VIDEO CARD COULD BE BAD, WHERE IS THIS LOCATED IN MY PC AND CAN i USE ANY VIDEO CARD TO RPLACE THIS?


Hello, if you were told by an expert tha you need a video card, here what you need:
1: You do not have a slot card type video card in your system( Dimension E521) your system has on board video, which you can not remove from the system but disable it.
2: Your system has PCIe x16 slot that can be used for new video card.
3: Link below will give you a list of PCIe x16 video cards, you can pick and choose according to your needs. Do you need DVI (digital connection, does your monitor has a white port in the back or just the blue one?), or regular VGA (blue port) is enough, do you need HDMI etc...
bottom line is any of those video card will work.

4: I am assuming you have never done this before so before you open up computer and start taking things apart go to the link below and download service manual for Dell Dimension E521 ( I selected the model for you so you don't have to look for it :-) )
http://support.dell.com/support/edocs/systems/dime521/en/SM_EN/index.htm

5: In the service manual link there are several Sections like:
Before You Begin
About Your Computer
Technical Overview
Specifications
Advanced Troubleshooting
System Setup
Removing and Installing Parts click on each one and read about it first to familiarize your self with the system.

6: Once you feel confident enough remove the power cable from from computer.
-> open computer cover
-> follow instructions in service manual under
->Removing and Installing Parts
-> Cards
->PCI Express Cards
-> Installing PCI express card.
-> Close computer cover
-> plug monitor cable to new card
-> power on the computer
-> if Picture quality is bad that means card was not properly recoginzed, install drivers from the CD that came with the video card.

I hope this helps, if you get stuck at any step or not clear feel free to post back.

Kind Regards,
Amar Sondhi

MSI x48c mobo keeps powering on and off. Won't post. No video signal. Video card and power supply and memory are all new and all work in other computers.


your motherboard is bad. Try the following before RMA'ng it.

1. Remove all the cards and memory.
2. Recheck your power supply connections
3. Remove, clean the thermal paste and reapply new
thermal paste (follow the manufacturer's directions)
4. Reseat the CPU.
5. Install one stick of ram
6. If the motherboard has an onboard video connect your monitor to it.
7. Try powering it up.

If that works, add the rest of the memory a stick at a time. If the system continues to power up, then install the Video card, and test again. Finally if everything is functional, chalk up the previous problems to bad karma. If the system fails to power up, and stay powered up after adding a component, then that is the faulty part.

Monitor goes black after windows boots up


Try removing the video card, and look up your motherboard / system manual on dell's website on how to manually reset the bios.

1. Remove video card
2. Reset BIOS (physically opening the computer and using a special jumper and/or removing the battery...what ever the manufacturer says to do to reset the BIOS).
3. After BIOS is reset, try booting up via your onboard video card first. Once you get that working, go into the bios settings and make sure it is set to boot the onboard only for right now and then you can make sure the ATI software is fully uninstalled when you get into windows.
4. Reinstall the ATI card and boot up with the video still connected to the onboard card. See if it will let you install the driver.

The trick here is to reset the bios and get the system booting off the onboard card if at all possible. If that works, then you can always reinstall drivers and then tweak the bios to boot off the AGP card instead of the onboard.

When the system shut down and start over again is related to some drivers or software conflict.
Other cause are:

Bad power supply
Bad connectors or power button
Bad slot on your motherboard
Bad Video Card - Bad Modem Card

1) Did you install some hardware or software lately?
If yes Unistall everything.

If not Go to the bios and see if your video card was setup properly
Switch the modem to another slot available.
Do the same with your video card


If the system still does not reconigze the cards
Reinstal OS
