    Thank you for the visual help.I do have PCI card, since my computer is 5,6 years old.Compaq Presario 7000 series to be precise.I went to Best buy to buy the card, it ran around $99 but I did not want to buy the card which was as expensive for old pc of mine and plus I wanted to make sure that PCI card was the problem in fact.They( Best buy staff) suggested that I should bring the pc in and they will run a diagnostics without any charge.I can then buy a card from where ever I want.I want your input as to where I can buy a card on line, what do I look for in the card(specifications for minimum requirements) and not as expensive.

Sorry friend i ws lill busy so could not rply.
Anyways

  • This is the VGA out: monitor not working - ebc4b94.jpg
  • And this is the connection for VGA comes from monitor: c99e5d1.jpg
  • Now if your VGA - Out is mounted on your motherboard then you have on-board VGA card.
  • If it VGA - Out comes from a PCI card like dffb048.jpg
  • means you have PCI VGA card.
Now if you want to use another PCI card just remove the one which you are using and use another one. Use only one PCI card for VGA, need not to use more than PCI VGA card at a time.

Thanks
Iqbal

My screen keep going white


To me this is a hardware problem.

Let's diagnose, and see Shunka_Reid.
Connect a VGA monitor to the laptop.

A) Laptop OFF, monitor OFF, connect a VGA monitor to the VGA port, on the laptop.

http://support.gateway.com/s/notebook/2009/gateway/nv/NV78/NV78lv.shtml

Number 3 - External VGA display port

General example of VGA connector (port), and VGA cable,

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/VGA_Connector

Scroll down a little for the VGA cable example.

You can use a CRT type of monitor, (Looks like a small TV), or a flat LCD screen monitor if it has a VGA cable.
General example of a CRT type of monitor,

http://www.wisegeek.org/what-is-a-crt-monitor.htm

B) Turn the monitor on. If a CRT type allow it to warm up.
Turn the laptop on.
By factory default settings, the display should show on the external VGA monitor.

IF not;
There are at least 3 display options available;
1) Internal monitor of laptop ONLY
2) Internal monitor of laptop AND external VGA monitor.
3) External VGA monitor ONLY.

Press, and hold the Fn key down, and at the SAME time tap once on the F4 key.
The F4 key is the Display Toggle-Over key.

Still no?
Hold the Fn key down again, and tap on the F4 key once more.

Do you get a good display on the external VGA monitor?

A) The Fujitsu Amilo Li 3710 Notebook PC does not have a graphics card.

It has Integrated Graphics.

The Integrated Graphics borrows some of the system resources.
Processor and Ram Memory

http://fujitsu.tabletsnlaptops.com/fujitsu-amilo-notebook-li-3710-316.html

The Integrated Graphics is part of the motherboard chipset.
The Intel GL40 - Northbridge chip, and the Intel ICH9-M - Southbridge chip,

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Comparison_of_Intel_graphics_processing_units#Fourth_generation

The integrated graphics is Intel GMA 4500MHD

http://ark.intel.com/products/35501/Intel-82GL40-Graphics-and-Memory-Controller-Hub

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Intel_GMA#GMA_X4500

So,.............what do you mean by clean it?

Also;
1) What ARE the symptoms,

and,

2) Have you connected an external VGA monitor, to the laptop?
If so do you get a display on the external VGA monitor?

How to cernecft from tower to moniter


Several styles of technology have been used, michealnorth;

1) VGA;

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/VGA_connector

2) DVI;

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Digital_Visual_Interface

3) HDMI;

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/HDMI

4) Mini Display-Port,

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mini_DisplayPort

Let's say your computer has a DVI female connector on the back, but you have a VGA cable to your monitor. (With male VGA connector)
Use a VGA to DVI adapter,

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

Other way around? DVI cable on monitor, but VGA port on back of computer?
Use a DVI to VGA adapter,

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

[HD-15 is the proper name of a VGA connector ]

Same for HDMI, or Mini Display-Port.

On the back of your computer is the I/O area.
Input/Output area.
It has a rectangular thin metal shield around it, usually.
The I/O shield.

Keyboard, Mouse, Monitor, Audio {Sound} connectors, and USB ports, are in the I/O area.

There are horizontal slots at the back of the computer also.
These slots are used for expansion cards. A graphics/video card, is an expansion card.

If you have a graphics card in one of these horizontal slots, connect your monitor to it, and NOT to the I/O area.

Graphics comes from the graphics card now, and not from a VGA, or DVI port in the I/O area.

For additional questions please post in a Comment.

Dual screen wont work


Kevin,

1) You cannot plug a monitor into the VGA connector, on the back of the desktop computer, AND plug a second monitor into a DVI connector, on the back of a desktop computer.

In otherwords you can only plug ONE monitor into the motherboard.

[ The I/O area on the back of the desktop computer, is the Input/Output area. This rectangular area has connections for Input devices, and Output devices.

Examples such as a Mouse, Keyboard, (INPUT), VGA devices, (VGA monitor - Output), USB devices, audio devices, (Speakers - Output. Microphone is an Input device), and so on.

The I/O area has a rectangular metal shield. (Thin metal plate)

Connecting a device in the I/O area, is connecting it directly to the motherboard.

Example of a VGA connector, and VGA cable,

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/VGA_connector

Example of a DVI cable, and DVI connector,

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Digital_Visual_Interface

(There are several variations of DVI connectors.
Scroll down ]

To use dual monitors you need a graphics card also.
Graphics card with a VGA connector, or DVI connector. (Or both)

Monitor with VGA cable, plugs into the I/O area on the back of the desktop computer. (Plugs into the motherboard's graphic chipset)

The second monitor plugs into the graphics card's DVI connector, or VGA connector.

[ Just an example,

http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/SearchTools/item-details.asp?EdpNo=1416091&CatId=3669

On the image of the graphics card on the left;
Go under it to the subheading - + 11 larger images and views.

There are 7 views shown. One is the carton the graphics card comes in. (View 2 from the left)

Going from the left side, count over to the 5th view. Left-click on the 5th view. Shows you the 'business end' of the graphics card.

Starting at the left side it is the HDMI connector, then VGA connector, then DVI connector.

Note*
YES, you can plug a VGA monitor, AND a DVI monitor, into this type of graphics card, and have Dual monitors ]

FIRST:
Computer on, Windows running; Put the Installation disk (CD) in the optical drive's tray. (CD/DVD drive)
Load ALL software.
Drivers, and 'Control Panel'.

Graphics card software loaded, close all windows, go back to your desktop screen. Turn the computer off normally.

Unplug the computer from power. Open the computer case.
FOLLOW Anti-Static Precautions.
(Don't know Anti-Static Precautions? Post back in a Comment)

Physically install the graphics card. Close the computer case.
Plug the VGA cable of the Primary monitor, into the VGA connector in the I/O area, on the back of the desktop computer.

Now plug the DVI cable of the Secondary monitor, into the DVI connector on the graphics card.

(The main monitor you use is the Primary monitor. The second monitor you are going to add, is the Secondary monitor )

Plug the computer into power. Both monitors plugged into power, turn them BOTH on.
Turn the computer on.

When Windows loads you will see a display on the Primary monitor.
Your desktop screen.

Now Right-click on an empty area of your desktop screen.
In the list at the bottom, Left-click on - Properties.

In the Display Properties window that comes up, left-click on the -
Settings tab.

You will see two rectangular icons. 1 and 2.
1 is the Primary monitor. 2 is the Secondary monitor.

Left-click on the Secondary monitor icon.
Go down towards the bottom/middle on the left.

Left-click in the empty square to the left of -
Extend my Windows desktop onto this monitor

Go down to the bottom Right. Left-click on Apply.
Go down to the bottom Left. Left-click on OK.

Your desktop screen will now be on the secondary monitor.


When you open your internet browser, (Yahoo, or Google, or MSN, or Mozilla Firefox, etc), you have to DRAG the screen onto the secondary monitor.

(Let's use Yahoo for an example. Yahoo will be on your Primary monitor.
You need to drag Yahoo onto the Secondary monitor)

Which direction you drag, is up to which direction the two monitors are sitting, on your computer desk.

The way the monitors are sitting in Display Properties; the Primary monitor is on the Left. ( 1 )
The Secondary monitor ( 2 ) is on the Right.

This is the way the two monitors should sit on your computer desk.
(There is a way to switch them around, however)

On your Primary monitor, (Still using Yahoo as an example), go to the RIGHT side. See the blue frame going around the screen?

When you bring the mouse cursor ON the blue frame, it turns into a Double-Sided arrow.
It is difficult at first to keep the cursor as a double-sided arrow.

Move too far to the right, it turns into the usual pointed cursor.
Move too far to the left, and it turns into the usual pointed cursor.
have to keep it on the blue frame.

WHILE the mouse cursor is a Double-Sided arrow, left-click, and hold the left mouse button down. Now drag the screen to the Right.
(Move your mouse to the right)

Keep dragging until the Yahoo browser is on both monitors.

Different size monitors? The display will not be the same size, on both monitors.

[ I use an HP 2009m, 20-inch widescreen monitor, as a Primary monitor, and an RCA EN-V, 26 inch HDTV, as a Secondary monitor.

I have my desktop on the Primary monitor, and FixYa, (Firefox browser), on the Secondary monitor, right now ]

Screen blank with white dot


Problem with;

1) Video cable:

A) Video cable connection on motherboard side is loose, and/or on back of LCD screen.

B) Video cable is damaged.

2) screen Inverter:

screen Inverter is bad.

3) LCD screen:

LCD screen is bad.

4) Graphics chipset:

Graphics chipset is bad.

Suggest you connect a VGA monitor to the VGA port (Connector) on your laptop.
See if the problem is the graphics chipset, Or video cable, Or display assembly.

You didn't state what manufacturer and Model Number of laptop this is.
All I can do is state generic information.

This is an example of a VGA Cable, and VGA connector,

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/VGA_connector

The VGA connector will be on the side, or back of your laptop.
For the VGA monitor you can use a CRT type monitor, (Looks like a small TV), or a flat LCD screen monitor that has a VGA cable.

Laptop OFF, monitor OFF, connect the external VGA monitor to the laptop.
Turn the monitor on. If a CRT type allow it to warm up.

Turn the laptop on.
By default the display should show on the external VGA monitor.
IF not;

There are at least 3 display options.
1) Laptop internal monitor ONLY
2) Laptop internal monitor AND external VGA monitor
3) External VGA monitor ONLY

Press, and hold down on the Fn key, and at the same time tap once on the Display Toggle-Over key.
(For an example HP's usually use the F4 key for a Display Toggle-Over key)

Display shows the same on the external VGA monitor?
You have a bad graphics chipset.

[ Some laptops have been erroneously stated as having a graphics card, when in fact they do not.
The GPU (Graphics Processing Unit) is soldered directly to the motherboard.
This is Integrated Graphics.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/GPU

There is no changeable, replaceable graphics card. Therefore the solution is motherboard replacement ]

IF, the display is good on the external monitor, you have a problem with the Video Cable, and/or in the Display Assembly.

After diagnosing with an external VGA monitor, post back in a Comment.
Also post the manufacturer name, and model number of the laptop.

Im trying to install agp...how do i disable the on board vga


Hi there.
Remember that if you are swapping from on-board graphics to a card you have to go into the BIOS and tell the machine that the primary graphics adapter is AGP/PCI Express.
Plug the VGA cable into the on-board graphics port, start the computer and enter the BIOS, tell the computer to use the AGP/PCI card as primary, press F10, save the changes and exit the bios.
The computer will try and restart so let it boot to post and turn it off, then put in your card and try to boot again.
Please post back if you need more help or advice.

Good luck and thanks for choosing FixYa!!

Dell 410XPs + Dell 3007WFP monitor issues


Vinod,
That's quite strange as during system startup you should see the Dell POST logo as at that point the card is only running at VGA, and the monitor will support display at this resolution. If you connect with a normal single DVI cable the monitor should display at 1280x800 also.
Have you tried this? Also have you had this monitor working on another computer at all? What happens if you power up the 3007 with no video cable connected? It should cycle through the pixel test screens. If you are not getting that, and you are not getting the pre POST logo during powerup i suspect that it is a screen failure.
