Your desktop PC has integrated video card, Intel 845GV. What you can do is buy a PCI Video Card and just add to the PCI slot in on your motherboard. You need to open your computer and just insert it in a slot. Slots are either 3 or 4 slots in the back of the computer down to the bottom when the computer is in a normal position

hope this helps!

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.

Monitor say RGB no signal?

If the monitor works with other computer then the video card in the computer where the monitor does not work is bad. You need to replace the video card. If the video card is on the motherboard, just replace it with a video card that fits into one of the PCI slots. If you were using VGA then purchase a PCI VGA Video Card.

I replaced my computer monitor with an AOC e2243Fw 1920 x 1080 LCD, but the display is a little blurry. How do I get the display to be clearer? Do I need to replace the video card? I tried changing the...

Yes, if your video-card does not support the "native" resolution of the monitor, you'll get "fuzzy" pictures, until you replace the video-card.

Since 3/4 of 1920 is 1440, and 3/4 of 1080 is 810, does your video-card support 1440x810 ?

Since 2/3 of 1920 is 1280, and 2/3 of 1080 is 720, does your video-card support 1280x720 ?

You probably would not want 960x540. Correct?

Monitor turned pink

Video-cards generate "primary" colours (red, green, blue), and "mix" those colours to produce millions of "secondary" colours.

First, try replacing the "data' cable between the LCD and the video-card.

Second, if your LCD works correctly when connected to some other desktop or laptop computer, then the video-card in your computer is not working properly -- not sending one of the "primary" colours to the LCD. Replace the video-card.

On the right side, color line showed up last week from top to bottom, more lines showed up every day and now form a strip. Is this a hardware or software problem?

You can check by yourself if the problem is brought by a video card. Disconnect your present video card from the motherboard. It is the hardware where vga cable from the monitor is connected to on the back of your computer. Replace it with your back up video card. (a pci or agp graphics card will do) connect the vga cable and restart your computer. If you don't have a back up video card, find in the computer a built in video card, enable this on the cmos'bios setup) connect the vga cable thru this and turn on your computer. If the lines went out then it is the video card that needs replacement. If the lines still occur despite the procedure, I suggest you bring your unit to a credible technician unless you have the skills to open your lcd monitor and find the problem in it by yourself.

Does this computer have a video card that I can replace, or is it a mother board?

If you look at the back of your computer, note where the video cable is connected. If the video cable is connected to the back plane where the expansion cards are installed, then it has a video card inserted either the PCI slot or the AGP slot.
If the video connector is next to the LPT, COM ports, USB ports etc. then the video controller is part of the motherboard.
If you want to replace the video card, the on-board video card can be disabled from the BIOS configuration and a better quality video card can be inserted into the AGP slot.

No display (black) - power light is amber color

The video signal is not reaching your monitor, check the pins on the connector from the monitor to the computer, then check the video card:

Turn off your computer, unplg the power, and then take out the video card. Wait 5 minutes and then put the card back into the computer and turn it on. For onboard video; turn off the computer, unplug the power, then hold down the power button on the front for 5-10 seconds, then plug back in and turn on.

Make sure the video card is snug in the AGP/PCI slot. If this is built-in video, try borrowing a video card from another computer and install it in this one. If the borrowed card works, then replace you card. If video is built in, then you can disble the onboard video and use the new card without having to replace your motherboard.

E machines w2646 video card replaceable

It has only some shared video memory onboard, so it won't be replacing.
The information i can find tells that the motherboard features an AGP-port, so you can just buy an AGP video card and place put it in the agp port on your computer.
