This might indicate a hardware problem with the video adapter, or a faulty video driver.

Try reinstalling the video card drivers by doing the following:

1. Download Driver Cleaner Pro or Driver Sweeper (both have free versions; make sure the version will work with your OS) to your desktop screen and install.

2. Download the latest diver(s) for your video card but don't install them.

3. Uninstall your video card drivers and reboot your PC into Safe Mode. Run Driver Cleaner Pro or Driver Sweeper but ONLY for the video card drivers. I had someone use it on their chipset drivers! If it doesn't find any video card drivers that is quite okay.

4. Reboot and install new video card drivers.

Far cry 2 keeps crashing to blackscreen


When does this crashing or black screen happen? During the boot up process or while you have windows booted all the way up?

If the computer is booting up all the way except the screen is black try the steps below.

Either your monitor or video card inside the computer is bad. Try connecting another monitor to the computer to isolate the problem. Borrow a monitor from a neighbor, friend, relative or co-worker and connect it to the computer. If the Borrowed monitor displays ok without any problems then your video card is good, but your original monitor is bad. If the Borrowed monitor does not display then the video card inside the computer is bad.

If the computer is not booting up all the way then try the steps below.

Try running the Check Disk Utility.

To run the check disk utility you will need a repair disc or a operating system disc. Put the disc in the cd drive and boot from it. You want to get to the Dos Command Prompt (Black screen with white letters) and type the following command: chkdsk /r
Check disk will run well over an hour or two and you will notice the percentages going from high to low, this is normal. Let it run to completion. Then reboot machine.

If check disk fails to solve your problem you might have to reinstall windows. Try doing a Repair Install that way you don't loose your data, documents, music, pictures, videos or programs.

In windows xp you get to the dos command prompt by selecting R for repair when the options appear.

In Vista and Windows 7 you want to get to the recovery console and look down at the bottom of the window for the Dos Command.

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.

I can hear my computer boot up to my desktop but get nothing from the monitor. i tried it on my plasma tv also and got the same results.


Try pulling out the video card and putting it back in. This is re-seating the card. Make sure the monitor is connected to the card. If this doesn't work , you may have to buy a new video card. If you know someone with a spare video card, borrow it to try it in your system to determine if it is the card or not.

My monitor on my Dell will not recognize the video card. The video card is new and did work when first installed. I tried putting a new memory card in some weeks ago, it didn't fit, so I put the old memory...


GO to control panel - system - device manager - display and see if your video card is shown then try to reinstall drives or the latest drivers

Pc powers up but no video on screen


Some computers require you to set the video output in the bios and some are auto. Take a look.

If its not the bios settings maybe you need to take out the card give the slot a blow and put it back. Sometimes they just don't quite sit right.

Monitor does not come on, but system loads, thus I need to fix the monitor issue with the dos prompt, if possible, any answers


Sorry can't fix monitors with Dos prompts these days. Try another monitor that you know works. Make sure both plugs from the monitor are plugged into 1) wall / 2) video card on computer.
If still no monitor try a new video card.

I have a E-machine t2240. The video output has stopped working. I have connected a known good monitor ands still there is no image. Help! wwood37@hotmail.com


If you are positive that your monitor is good, the cable is connected properly and everything is powered up and in working order, you may only have a blown onboard video card. If you have a free PCI slot available (I think it normally has only two free PCI slots) I would try to find borrow a used PCI video card to see if that will work before wasting any good mony on a new one. You would have to disable the built in video from the BIOS, but it would be worth a try if you can find someone with an old PCI video card willing to let you try it out. Given the age of the system, don't waste too much money taking it to a repair shop though as you can spend half the cost of just buying a newer and more capable new computer very quickly.

Good Luck

Video card for the gateway 507gr


Yes, your computer specifically supports:

PCI Express 16x and
PCI Express 1x

The 16x is the long one and the 1x is the reallly short one. Most likely the card that you get will fit the big slot. Be careful not to upgrade too high though, because if you do you may have to upgrade your power supply as well. Ask someone at gateway or a local shop for a recommended card for your system.
