If the video card is gone then the only thing you can do is to replace it - the only ones that have it are the dealers. Go to the one that sold you the laptop and ask it to replace it. Beware, it will be expensive.

No display on screen in Acer aspire 5830TG with GeForce 540


If it shows on an external monitor but not on the laptop screen, either the screen ribbon cable has come loose, the inverter/ccfl has died or the lcd screen has died.

If you boot your laptop to external monitor, then unplug the monitor - try shining a flashlight across the screen to see if you can see any dataicon1.png/screen info - if you can, then the inverter/ccfl has died. If not, either the screen has died or the cable has come loose

No display on screen in Acer aspire 5830TG with GeForce 540


I agree with you, if the graphic card was bad, the external display would not work. He probably connected a non-compatible LCD. Unfortunately, replacing the LCD will cost about $100 plus labour. Is it worth it for a 6 year old laptop or should you just continue to use it ask a desktop.

WHEN I TRY TO PLAY SIMS 3 GAME I GET A EROR MESSAGE YOUR VIDEO CARD DOES NOT SUPPORT SHADER MODEL 2 PLEASE UPGRADE YOUR CARD


a Video card (aka a Graphics card) is a physical component in your computer that renders images and graphics, the higher quality graphics card you have the higher quality of games and images you can play/render.

so what this error means is the graphics card that your computer currently has installed doesn't support a model of shader (think shadows) which is needed to run Sims 3 properly

you can upgrade these cards, but it all depends on other components of your computer as to which would be most suitable for you

if you know anyone with knowledge of computers consult them as it would be free, or otherwise you'll have to have a consultation with a computer technician at your local computer store

hope this helps.

Black screen during gaming default graphics settings, no overclocking forced to hard restart..only remedy is to use rivatuner to force 3d performance..at the cost performance during gaming. Gateway...


I've had a similar problem on my Dell Studio laptop. Windows Update will force an update to the graphics card driver, and the result will be full of bugs. To fix, consult the graphics card's manufacturer website (Intel, nVidia, AMD) and download the correct driver for your graphics card. Uninstall the current driver using Device Manager (Windows Vista/7 just type in "Device Manager" to the start menu search. Expand the Display Adapters section. Right click on your graphics card and select uninstall.) You should then be prompted to restart your computer, do so. Once your computer has rebooted, install the new driver downloaded from the manufacturer's website, after it installs you should again be prompted to restart, do so. Once rebooted, problem should be solved.

If I helped you, please give me a 4 thumbs up rating. If you still need more assistance, comment back and I'll be happy to continue helping.

How much does a new video card cost for a pavilion dv6700 was told the graphic card is faulty and is the reason the screen goes blank at random times


Usually graphics cards are built directly onto the motherboard in laptops so you need to replace the motherboard. This is very expensive. Alternatively you could contact a local board repairer who has a work station and they may be able to repair it for you. Hope this helps,

Screen is distorted and split into 6-8 images at startup. This happens even during the bios screen. Eventually it blue screens and fails to boot....


You probably need to send it to HP and have them replace the video card. If the video card is still good make sure you try to upgrade the driver for that card.

A bad video card can disrupt a computer in many ways, and seeing distortion on the screen is a sure sign of video card failure or the corruption of it's hardware driver program.

This may or may not be of some help. http://www.laptopka.com/2006/04/12/remove-replace-video-board/

Usually with laptops you have to replace the mobo but looks like there may be a possibility (slim one) that the card can be replaced, however I could not find anything as far as parts to get to replace just the video card so its looking more and more like the whole mobo would need to be replaced.
