You need to check what type of expansion connection your computer has for video support, AGP or PCI-X are the popular players nowadays. If you cannot find which your computer supports post the model number of your computer or your motherboard, BE SPECIFIC.

How do I enter setup?

Setup is usually entered by pressing the delete button or F2 (or F1 .. it depends on your computer..) during the boot-up process.

However, as you say there's absolutely nothing on your monitor which you know works, suggests that the fault lies elsewhere. If there's nothing at all on your monitor it may be a failed video card/chip.

I take it that your computer actually powers up even though you can see nothing on the monitor?

If you can, try another video card in your computer. If the monitor then works, you know it is the old video card/chip at fault.

If, after trying a replacement video card and there's still nothing on the monitor, you'll have to suspect a motherboard fault.

After installing new ATI HD4670 video card on my Gateway zx6810 I boot system hear no beeps computer powers on but screen is black


Is this new video card the only video source on the PC (i.e. there is no other VGA connections on the PC)?

Without knowing the make and model of the PC, I will list the most common issue when replacing the video card in a PC.

1. Connect the monitor to each available VGA connection and boot the computer - to see if any VGA output is working

2. When you find a working VGA output, go into BIOS and change the VIDEO settings to either allow BOTH the onboard and add in video OR allow the add in video only. Save the changes and turn the computer off.

3. Move the video cable to the add in video card, turn the computer on and see if the BIOS is using the new Video card

When i turned on my computer the monitor read "no VGA signal," it was working fine the day before, do i need a new video card? if so what type do i need? or what other problem could it be?

Most likely it is the video card.... If it was working fine and all of a sudden it stopped then its usually the video card.. Has there been lightning lately, thunderstorms? That usually burns them.. You could pretty much use any Video card... Let me know if this answers your question and good luck..

My asus m50sa over heats and locks up when im play games all fans r working proprely i think i need a video card

You may need to upgrade your video card. On my desktop at home, we would play graphically demanding games on it pretty often. While we stayed within the system requirements, our computer would often overheat, despite the fact that all of its fans were working properly. If you push the video card too hard and too often, it will cause the computer to get very, very hot. Upgrading the video card and adding another fan solved the problem, although I don't know how to upgrade your video card on a laptop.

Well i thinking about hooking my t.v. to computer with out unhooking computer screen. i need to know were to plug in the t.v.

This will only work if you have a graphics card with two outputs; if you do, they will be right next to eachother, and will be a s-video (small round) VGA (blue) DVI (white) or HDMI (trapezoid).

I have a Video card built into my computer , I had another Video card put into my computer . Now my computer started messing up, I need to get the one I put on my computer off and I dont know what I am...

Just remove the new video card and the system will revert to the original built-in video. Unplug the computer, take off the cover or side plate, remove the screw holding the video card end bracket, and pop the card free from its socket on the motherboard. It's quite simple.

If you run into more problems, please post a follow-up comment. I would like to know what your computer began doing when you say it's messing up. Are you trying to solve a video problem by uninstalling the new video card? Are you planning to restore your computer using a recovery disc? If that's the case you don't need to take out the new video card. You'll just need to install the necessary drivers for the card after the restore is finished.

Please let me know if I can help further.

Loaded new video card on computer but motherboard video card will not let it work. The motherboard video card does not show up in the device manager and the computer says the new video card is working.

Device Manager is showing correct.
Try connecting the display cable to the Video card and restart the computer.
If that doesn't work, check which display adapter is selected in BIOS.
If it is selected as the Video card, then u need to check whether the new video card is good.

Don't know how to download my pics or videos on the coputer

There are two way to upload your picture's or video's to your pc:

  1. You can upload video to the use of your camcorder connector. Connect your USB cable to your camcorder and plug it to your computer. You need to turn on your camcorder so that it will be recognized by the computer.
  2. You can upload also your video's with the use of memory card reader. Remove your memory card from your camcorder and insert it to the card reader. Plug the card reader to the computer. The computer will recognized the card. Now you can upload your photo's or video's.
Good luck!

S video output Does not work on my Gateway GM5472 computer

Here are some things to try...

You may need to install some software and/or drivers for this hardware to work. Look on the manufacturers web site.

I see that the card goes into your PCI-Express slot. Is it intended to power both your monitor and a TV? If so, and the software/drivers are already installed, you may need to open a configuration/settings window or a control panel in order to redirect the video signal to the NTSC port.

It may be that you need to enable the card in your computers BIOS settings.

NO video input philips 180p1

Hello there:
This normally means that the cable that goes to the computer from the monitor is not getting any signal from the video card
This is due to a couple of possible problems
the graphics card is not compatible with the monitor
Or the graphics card is faulty or dirty and needs to be removed and cleaned with rubbing alcohol and than reinstalled
I would first try this on a different computer to see if the monitor now works if so han you know you have a graphis card problem but if it does not work than you know that the monitor is the one with the problem
It may have a faulty controle circuit on it and needs to be serviced or jut simply replaced ok
If you do take the video card out of the computer Unplug the power supply to the computer than remove the power supply cord to the mother board and press in on the power button for 1 minute this will release any esd (electrical static dicharge) that is built up during operation than attach it back on the mother board and continue to remove the graphics card and make the replace ment or repairs needed ok
I hope this is very helpful for you
Best regards michael
