I get no video output from the new PCI video card I've installed in my Think Centre

I just put a new video card in my computer. I removed the intel video driver it had installed already, inserted the new video card into the PCI slot, and I don't get any picture through my monitor.

Maybe your old video card is on board because you don't mention it that you remove it. Maybe the problem is the cmos or the bios setup. If you can go to bios setup look for the onboard vga in disable it and look for pci vga option if disable enable it. or try to transfer the new pci video card to the other slot maybe the slot is damage or corroded that's why the contact to the board in not fucntioning.

You have a PCI Expres x 16 expansion slot so can can pretty much put any video card into it. But don't know how much space you have in the case , you might need low profile one. Or just how much money you want to spend. Here is an example of a 1GB low profile card that have HDMI out. EVGA 01G-P3-1302-LR GeForce 8400 GS Video Card - 1024MB DDR2, PCI Express, DVI, VGA, HDMI, Low Profile
You can do a search on this card.

I have DG965SS mother board and I am about to buy video card PCI-E , what I need to do to have this card working and not using the on-board craphic ?


When you already purchased a new PCIE card for it what you need to do is to just plug the video card to the mother and then power it on and computer will automatically disable the onboard video card and then once computer is up run the setup disc for the new video card and install all the software for it and you;re ready to go now.

How do i active hdmi on eah3450, i cant get picture


This card only has a VGA, S-Video, and DVI output. There is no HDMI output. It is made by ATI, and only compatible with motherboards that have an Intel CPU. If your Processor is an AMD, this graphics card won't work with your computer.

Please i want to know the model of graphics card


The D915GAV motherboard supports PCI-E video cards. This is currently the standard for new video cards so pretty much any new PCI-E video card should be supported by the board.

You may require higher power output so you may want to ensure that the wattage on your power supply is sufficient for the new video card.

Can I install a PCI video card on my D915GAG?


Are you sure it's a PCI slot you are putting it into, and not a PCIe slot? If so, check your BIOS is set to allow PCI graphics.
