To replace the video card you would have to replace the motherboard it is built into it.before doing so try removing all the ram chips on the underside in a compartment w/4 screws match the ram accordingly(go to best buy or even ebay)
its pc2700 ddr ram and probably pretty cheap right now just buy one stick if that fixes your problem its cheaper than spending 500 or 600 on a board replacement.

Echo blower wont fire


you sheared the flywheel key... If it's a PB250 251 or something along those lines you are going to need a new carb and flywheel. Take it to the dealer and see if they can fix in under warranty... Why the carb you say, it leaked causing the flywheel to come loose. If it's not under warranty then do not repair, you can buy a new one for about $160 USD

Monitor will not boot up is reading no input signal


So either the computer isn't generating a video signal, the cable isn't carrying the signal to the monitor, or else the monitor isn't capable of receiving a video signal.To test this, first try a video cable that you know is good, in case your cable is bad, If it works with the other cable, the problem was your original video cable. If it still doesn't work, put your original cable back, and hook another computer up to the monitor. If the monitor makes the same message, the problem is with the monitor. If the other computer works when connected to this monitor, your problem was that the original computer isn't booting (which could be due to several reasons I will list below), or the video adapter is broken.Possible reasons for the computer not booting: bad power supply, bad power button, bad hard drive, bad memory, bad motherboard component. If you determine that it isn't booting, unplug everything except the keyboard mouse monitor and power cord, to see if that makes a difference. If it boots after that, something you unplugged was causing the problem, plug them each back in one by one, rebooting in between, and when it stops booting properly, the last thing you plugged in is causing the problem.

The video chip is failing. If you have the original configuration, with the onboard chip you could try to add another AGP video card, but since the video chip is part of the northbridge that isn't good news for the rest of the motherboard - it is dying also.
I think it's time to buy a new pc, or at least a new motherboard.

Playing a downloaded film with HDMI cable to my TV set Sony Bravia, after 10 minutes the colour on tv set disappear or change. Do I need a certain drive on my computer for HDMI


If it was playing the video fine initially, there should be no reason for that to change. Most likely the video card on the laptop is overheating or dying, which results in the change in colors. I fix laptops at my computer repair shop, and most are HP Pavilion DV6000 and DV9000, and they are notorious for having bad video chips on the motherboards. If it is still under warranty I would back up your data from the hard drive then send it in to HP to have fixed or replaced. If it isn't under warranty I would try to connect your tv using just a VGA cable, and see if the same thing happens. If it does, you have a bad video card. If it doesn't happen then you may still have a bad video card, it's just that the VGA signal isn't as high powered/high resolution so your card doesn't get pushed hard enough to malfunction. Try the VGA cable and let me know how it works.

If you are sure that the monitor and cable are fine, then it is possible that the onboard video can be going bad. If you can regain the color while "jiggling" the cable at the connector to the computer and you are 100% certain the cable is bad, then this can indicate a loose connection of the plug to the mainboard. This is often caused by what is called a cold solder spot, where it has not adhered to the metals and thus causes a loose connection. If this is not the issue, then it is safe to say that perhaps the onboard video is going bad... assuming it is an onboard video since the unit is a slimline. If space permits, you can always add a video card and disable the onboard video.

My CPU freezes a random times or when i reset it, video will not come on, but the cpu comes on.. I have to power it down a couple of times. Does that sound like a video card going bad? Radeon 7000 graphics...


it could be your graphics card going, before purchasin a new 1, check that all your fans are working and that your cpu cooling fan or heatsink has not come loose. those type of problems cause the computer to shut down because of overheat. last but not least your hard drive can be going bad and its hitting bad sectors causing it to shut down or freeze.

During use playing games the screen suddenly went black; i operate two monitors simultaneously and the cable works fine on the other monitor and both graphics cards are working, any ideas on how to fix it?


Hi, if you loose video on both monitors, that means there is a problem with the video cards. I guess you already tried to update the video drivers to the latest ones, so the only thing remaining is maybe an hardware problem with the video card. Try to play your game at a lower screen resolution and see what happens. Also, if you have a flatscreen monitor, try to lower the refresh rate at the default 65Hz or 70Hz. If after 30 min or so you still loose your image, make sure the monitors are still powered (usually the green light will turn orange awaiting a singal to open and turn green then) Some video cards got some issues with heat after a certain amount of time. Something about GNU but i'm not 100% positive. Anyway, in that case, you may have to replace your video card, god of waranty please be with us! good luck

Video to monitor problems


4 beeps means either a bad video card or bad memory.  Try to take out and reseat the video card and the RAM.  If that doesn't do it try using another video card or RAM.  In my experience, 9 times out of 10, the memory is either bad or dusty and not making contact.

OK. Thanks for the response. That message is telling us that the monitor is getting no signal from the computer. In your case, it sounds like it is working part of the time. So, here are the things that can cause the problem, starting with the monitor and working backwards.
1) The monitor may have an internal problem.
2) The cable connector that goes into the monitor may have a loose connection or be bad. Check for loose or bent pins in the connector plug and socket, and that the plug is seated properly and is tight.
3) The cable itself could be damaged and have a wire that is cut or pinched. Look for cuts or heavy crimps on the cable.
4) The cable connector that goes into the computer may have a loose connection or be bad. Check for loose or bent pins in the connector plug and socket, and that the plug is seated properly and is tight.
5) There could be a problem with the computer that is internal. If there is a video card that plugs into the mother board, you could unplug it, clean the dust and such from the contacts on the card and around where the video card plugs in the mother board and reinsert the video card. Also, the video card itself could be bad,in which case it would need to be replaced. Some systems have the video function as a part of the mother board. If that's the case, the mother board would need to be replaced.

One thing that you can try when it is failing. While watching the monitor, firmly wiggle the cable and each of the connectors to see if the signal comes and goes. You may want to enlist someone to watch while you wiggle, or wiggle while you watch (That sounds kind'a bad doesn't it? <Grin>) But, that could tell us something.

Hope this helps and will be waiting to hear back from you on this.

DXG 506V Will not turn on


I had the same problem ...I bought a new 2 GB SD card put it in the camera and it worked fine.

It may have had something to do with formatting ..I tried to format the other card wiyh my computer when the video camera would stay on.
I tried to reset the camera that didn't work either.
The new SD Card did work.
