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.

I AM REPLACEING THE VIDEO CARD NEED TO NO WITCH ONE TP DISABLE BEFORE I REMOVE THE VIDEO CARD TO INSTALL THE NEW ONE


Before disabling the video card, restart the computer and enter the BIOS settings. Often there is also a setting in BIOS on newer boards that allows the user to set either a PCI card or AGP card as the primary video device. Make sure this is set to your video card, which in your case would be PCI-E Automatic. Power down the computer, plug the VGI cable into the new graphics card and turn the computer on. You should be up and running in a matter of seconds. If you don't have video, turn the computer off by holding the power button in until the computer shuts down. Remove the new card and return VGI cable to original location. Restart the computer and use the driver installation disk that came with the new card. Install the drivers. Shut down the computer and try again with the new card.
NOTE: With the BIOS settings to PCI-E Automatic, the computer will check if a card is installed in the PCI-E slot before going to the integrated graphics. Do not remove the drivers for the integrated graphics, you may need to reuse it at a later time.

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.

There may be a setting in your BIOS for your video output.

If you were originally using the onboard VGA video output, there may be an option in the BIOS to switch to PCI output.

Pc powers up but no video on screen


Some computers require you to set the video output in the bios and some are auto. Take a look.

If its not the bios settings maybe you need to take out the card give the slot a blow and put it back. Sometimes they just don't quite sit right.

Video card


http://www.directron.com/howtovideo.html

This link covers basically everything you need to know for installing a video card. Basically you need to determine what kind of card you are going to use based on available slots on your motherboard (PCI, AGP, or PCI-E).

Then find a new card (some really good deals on video cards at newegg.com)

Setup is pretty easy, once you physically install the card, you usually just have run the CD that accompanies your video card to install the drivers for it. If your current video card is onboard video, then you will have to disable it in device manager in order for your new card to work properly.

You also want to be sure your power supply is large enough to supply enough juice to your new video card.

Intel 82845G Graphics doesn't support 1680x1050


You also have to install the monitor drivers.
And yes, the drivers directly from Intel will not work. Dell has a perpritory video, and you have to use the Dell Intel drivers.

I've installed a few of these, and I know they will work.
But I had to go with a 1280x1040 setting. It does work, and will fill the entire screen.

Another option is to put in a PCI video card (yes, a full size card will fit in the GX260's) One bonus to that is you can do multiple monitors. I've had best luck in the GX260's using video cards with an ATI chipset.

How to disable onboard/integrated video in bios


I would suggest attempting to configure it through windows. Go start, control panel, display and set the secondary output which should be your pci card to display the primary screen. If that does not work I would suggest going onto the hp website and searching for further assistance.
