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.

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


Hello

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

Well first off does the HP have the lastest bios? Does the hp enough amps on the 12v line to support the card? I do know I had a video card once that had a conflict with my bios so, if it all else fails sell the card, and buy a ati one since it seems like ati works. But first try all the above.

RADEON 7500 AGP Graphic Card: just reformatted my old dell optiplex gx260 and i ...


You can try reinstalling the firmware for the video card, but if that doesn't work your video card is probably dead and you'll need a new video card. The firmware is what controls the video card, so if the computer shut off while the firmware was in the process of being rewritten, there's a good chance some of the code needed to run the card got erased or scrambled.

Hello i want to know what the difference between an integrated video card and a dedicated video card, which has more capacity and what is best for play the latest games


Integrated generally means it is part of the motherboard and not a removable card. Integrated can also mean a card that does multiple tasks like Graphics & Modem & Printer. Dedicated would indicate a removable card that does only graphics and not other tasks. A dedicated graphics card would almost always work better. They have more capacity and work faster.

You can add a graphics card to pretty much any newer computer fairly easily now days. Check your computer manual to be sure what type of video card you will be able to use.

Choppy play with high quality video


A replacemnet video card would help some, but you still have the problem of the 440 mhz processor.

There is not a lot you can do about the processor outside of rebuilding the whole computer. If for some reason that is not an option for you, then yeah, a $20 video card from ebay might give some relief (if you know what to get.. AGP or PCI), but don't be surprised if your processor is just too taxed to render high quality video at the proper rate.

My computer is stating no signal


Hey,

The monitor of the computer is not getting a signal from the computers video card.

this can be caused by a faulty video card, or just the computer not starting up properly.

instead of replaceing parts I would recommend you take the computer to a professional or someone knowledgeable in computers to get it fixed.

Let me know if you need anything else.


Thanks,
Ekse

Adaptor settings


Take out the video adaptor that you have installed and see if you can boot up with only the on-board video, first in standard mode and then if it won't work, try the safe mode..

Did you change any other settings?

Also, when you had the video card installed, did you disable the onboard video?
