I just built a new machine and at bot, by default, the logo covers everything that would normally be shown. so i blindly kept del pressed when starting and then i could be able to enter BIOS and switch that logo off! (it took quite a while to boot up, probably because everything is at autodetect? but it took at least 2 or 3 minutes)

Hit F8 when you restart the computer. it will get you into safe mode or you can try the last known good feature, where you can figure whats wrong.

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

I have a dell dimension 4400 and the original graphics card thats came with it but yesterday i when too turn on my computer and the screen is not picking up and image from the CPU is there anything i can...


OK, I am curious how are you going to install a new graphics card without installing a new graphics card? "picking up and image from the CPU is there anything i can do to install a new PCI graphics card with out having too install the new graphics card"

You can install a different graphics card in the computer assuming you have an open expansion slot. If the Current Graphics card is actually installed in the AGP slot open the Main CPU unit and remove it then install the new card. If when you started the computer you saw anything on the screen, the DELL logo or Bios setup, the problem most likely is not the graphics card being bad but possibly that the settings in windows some how changed and it is set to something it can't support or the monitor has gone out. If it is the graphics card and it is built onto the motherboard you will have to install the new card and when the computer starts enter the Bios to change the BIOS settings to disable the on board card or it will give you problems with conflicting resources. Most graphics cards use the same resources so two cards in the same computer will conflict with each other and neither will work. I would test with a different monitor before replacing the graphics card.

This might be caused by a common conflict between your 7600 series videocard and your computers chipset. Try disabling "write combining".

To do this, goto the display properties (on the Windows desktop right mouseclick and choose "properties"). Then choose the tab "Settings" and click the "Advanced" button. Now choose the tab "Troubleshooting" and uncheck the checkbox "Enable writecombining" and click the "OK" button afterwards.

You might need to restart the computer afterwards before testing wether that solves your problem or not.

If that doesn't fix it, try other/newer drivers. And when that doesn't help things, you might have overheated the card (and damaged the RAM chips on it). You might want to clean any dust from the card anyways.

When the problem still occurs, please let us know, so we can continue troubleshooting ...

My computer when i boot a message appered scanning bios image in hard drive..... bios auto-recovering and the computer restart... how to repair this error??


The bios is stored in the CMOS chip on motherboard not on the hard driver, the error message probably means it it scanning to find a hard drive to boot to. You should go into your BIOS and reset to factory defaults and see if this makes a diffrence. you may also have a failed hard drive which may need to be replaced.

Problems after installing drivers


Does this happen AFTER Windows has done a full boot up, or before?

If this happens after Windows has started, then the problem may be with the vertical refresh rate. Some monitors will shutdown if the refresh rate is set too high. To correct this, I would suggest loading your computer into Safe Mode, which should allow the video to work, and go into your video properties (right click "Desktop", select "Properties", click "Settings" tab, click "Advanced"). On the "Monitor" Tab will be a drop box for Screen Refresh Rate. If it's set to something above 80Mhz, try selecting a lower rate, such as 70Mhz. Other than that, I'm not sure. And no, you cannot use Remote Desktop to change the refresh rate as it doesn't use the video card to display with.

Monitor goes blank after showing XP logo screen (black screen with the xp logo right after boot up screens)


There are different reasons why this might happen. Let's try some. 1.) Does your board have an onboard video card, cause if it does, then XP might be using that as the primary monitor. TRy plugging into the onboard video when you start up! If that works then you need to disable the onboard video.(try disabling it in bios!) if not then 2.)When booting at the select xp or recovery console, press F8. You'll get the menu with safe mode and what not. Go down to Enable VGA Mode then press enter. If that works, go to display settings and lower your resolution then restart. But usually when this happens your monitor says "Out of Range" but u can still try Well if that doesn't work, tell me more! Regards, Armando
