What BUS is on the motherboard? If this is an early ISA bus, there are places that sell used video cards. Do a google search for video card by bus type, there are a number of places that still have htem.

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.

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.

I have armor command but can't get it to work on xp sp2 despite trying every setting combo in the compatibility window. how do i get it to work?


WinXP SP2:I've tried other systems too with no luck either. However, I've had this working (almost properly = every once in a big while it would hang and reboot was the only recourse) using an Intel D845GEBV2 motherboard with a 2.0GHz intel P4 w/ 1GB ram. I've found that the trick is the AGP card. The system stayed up long enough to play for hours. I had a Rosewill AGP Radeon ATI 9200SE video card. Apparently the 'rage' :) was AGP at the time this game hit the streets (1998) and this game is very AGP touchy.
I've also tried to run this on my P4 641 OC to 4.0GHz with 2GB ram with a Sapphire Radeon 9600 Atlantis AGP 8x video and ... no go. Similar issues with hand and config.
Right now I have it working on a just built Seattle 2 PII 440BX ATX motherboard (aka MICRON PC). It has a PIII @ 650MHz and 768MB ram. Boot to MS-DOS or Win98SE2. The video card on this one is an ATI Rage Mobility-L. A dinky little card, you can find one easily on EBAY for really cheap, but mine (bought on EBAY years ago for like $48) was out of an older MICRON system (not this Seattle 2 MB). Works fine. Really had to look on web hard to find a video driver for it ...This config also works great for these DOS games that I miss ... DOS Protected mode box within Win98 works perfect for Commander Keen and the original Duke Nukem!

Try to recover what is left on the memory stick with TestDisk on a pc.
Note, download the windows version and not the dos/windows version, the
dos/windows version is for windows 3.11 and lower.

Try to fomat the card afterwards if this does'nt help at all try another card in
your camera, if the other card works replace your other card else get te camera autorized repairs man.

Succes.

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

Geforce 8600 GT Broken down?!


Have you tried the non functioning video card in another computer?

Did it work?

If not, replace it.

If yes, have you tried taking the card out and reseating it? This will be done anyway if you try it out on another computer and then put it back into yours.

Is this card one of those that require a separate power feed to it? Is this connected? Does the lead join the harness up near the Power Supply or way down near the end of the harness? (this makes a difference to the amount of power available and can cause the video card to malfunction if the voltage is too low).

Sorry I don't have an immediate answer, there are too many variables.

Good luck.
