Question about Color Graphics PREDATOR LT4, (16 MB) Graphic Card

Card thinks there is 4 monitors when only 2 are hooked up

I am running windows 2000 with this card. It has a dongle with 4 connectors to connect up to 4 monitors. I only have 2 connected and have the other two disable in the device manager but the computer thinks there is four monitors. So it uses the very right side of the right monitor as the middle of the total display and the resolution choices are crazy like 4096 x 480. I have tried reinstalling but the same thing happens. How do you get the card to recognize that there is only two monitors connected???

    This was working with two monitors with no problems on windows 2000.

    We upgraded all the machines at my office to XP and now we can not seem to get it back the way it was.

    as to the dongle I will have to go take a look at it as I do not know if it is active or passive. But it has worked before with the card and the dongle for just two machines.

Is the dongle an active or passive device? It could also be that the card is set up in a mode that forces, rather than senses, the 4 monitor option (e.g., I think this device supports composite mode). Please provide info on this dongle, and whether this setup was working as in now broken (and then what did you change before it broke) or if this is something new altogether.

So I just bought a Radeon HD 3450 graph card but after installing it in my ABIT IC7 motherboard the monitor doesn't display any signal upon starting the computer. Any ideas?

Test the card with another monitor first of all
I seem to think that this card requires a connection from the PSU ( check if there is a connection that would take a 12volt 4 pin molex or a floppy drive type power connector on the card)

Also, you should be running at least a 550 watt psu

I have a compaq presario pc. Motherboard is Asus P5LP-LE : Lithium UL8E. I have 3 Gig of RAM installed, a 400w PSU. I have just purchased a new graphics card - Radeon HD5570. My MoBo has 1 PCI-E x16 and 3...


I think you have not connected power connector to your Radeon HD5570 .
This graphics card have 6pin power connector .
You need a 6pin power connector cable that comes with the graphics card box.

1.First connect your 6pin power connector to Graphics card.
2. Then connect other part of the cable to PSU.

Hope it will work for you.

Thanks for using FixYa.

Hello I bought a used hp compaq dc7100 computer that is supposed to have a video card that allows me to run 2 monitors (the guy actually said it supports 4 monitors). Hooking everything up and turning on...

You could find the exact model of your graphics card by clicking on run and then running dxdiag. You will then goto the display tab and it will show you what you need to know. Then just google the drivers for whatever card you have.

I bought a video card so I could hook up a second monitor. When I have the video card plugged in, neither monitor comes on, however in my original monitor I can see my mouse move but the page is black.

to have 2 monitors connected -your new card needs 2 connectors-and you have to disable the onboard one-be sure the correct driver is installed for the new card

My computer is only 2 years old. I recently moved and hooked my computer back up yesterday. I turned it on and the monitor says no service input and automatcily goes into sleep mode. What do you think is...

The monitor is not detecting that it connected to a video card. You did not specify which computer model but if there is only one then you must ensure that the connectors are seated properly. If there is a built-in connector and a add-on video card connector also then make sure that the monitor is connected to the correct connector. When the computer is off there will be a yellow light indicator on the monitor and when the computer is booted it will turn green normally. 
If you have another computer, even a laptop you can connect the monitor to that to ensure that the monitor is working and the cable has no bent pins at the connector therefore verifying whether the trouble is at the computer end or monitor. Please repost if you try these steps and still need help.

Need to connect 2 displays to Vision Tek RADEON X1300256 card

You probably should have gotten a card that had Dual DVI because it will be two separate outputs instead of one... I would take it back and get the correct Graphics Card.

At a guess it is the refresh rate the video card is sending to the video out. What is the Max Resolution of the monitors and refresh rate ??
I would think there is a program to be able to setup the driver refresh rate and resolution don't use window drivers get the ones from the makers of the card rather than using the default nivida drivers

Monitor light blinks

have you tested the power supply connection feeds? test each connector I think you will find your power supply has failed on either the 5 volt or the 12 volt side more than likely 5 volts are down' the agp adapter needs 5 volts to run. since you have changed out every thing else I would replace that or test your dads power supply in your computer, that should do the trick
