Question about Computers & Internet
I suspect that my video card is bad. I have had problems with the monitor going black. I tried a lot of things so far but not change. updated drivers, turing off hibernate, screen saver, lower refresh rate, turn off acceleration, carefully dusted out the computer, etc. Problem still there.
I want to test if the card is the problem by removing it. My monitor is connected to the nvida port. Can I just turn off the card in preferences, remove the card, plug the monitor back into the original monitor port and restart the computer?
Or, is there more to it than thant?
You can do that but you may need to reset bios to recognize onboard video give it a try B4 you change bios
