Question about Computers & Internet

Graphics Card My Gateway PC screen is completely black;it says that there is no signal.My computer is running perfectly;it's just the monitor.I followed the owner's manual to a "T" but still had no results.I phoned Gateway support and was told that the issue is most likely a graphics card problem.They said for a fee they could mail me out one and verbally guide me via phone as to how to connect the card to my pc.Question's:Any suggestions where I can purchase a graphics card besides Gateway?They want to charge me 70$ plus shipping.I have no clue if that is a fair price.And how would I go about how to connect the card myself?Any online tutorials?Thanks!

    I have a PC made by Tiny. the graphic card installed is fx5200lp for some time it has come up with a blueish tint to the screen and then goes normal for a while and also does not turn the L.C.D monitor on.The other day i was using the PC as normal it was shut down at night and the next day when i turned on PC had a message on the screen NO INPUT SIGNAL i have tried to rectify this by buying a new V.G.A. lead but the same message appeared. I opened up PC removed graphic card and made sure it was seated in the correct position still having no luck. I have been to several retailers to obtain a new graphics card but get conflicting advice. Two of the capacitors seem to be rounded at the top where the rest are flat is this an indication that the card made now be faulty. any helpful advice would be appreciated

    I have the xfx ge force 6200 on a biostar mob and recently reloaded winxp. Boy was i in for headaches with this card. It just kept giving the bsod and at times monitor did not receive messages.
    I used to have the same problem before, but woth the older 81.98 drivers. I downloaded "nv4_disp error fix"( 0.54mb) and had no problems afterwards, until now, after reloading.
    I installed the 178.24 driver and that was the start of headaches. I uninstalled and reinstalled the older driver, but same problems. To get some functionality, i set hardware acceleration in the display to none and the computer is working again. But forget about watching videos and anything that requuires high def graphics.

    That card is totally disgusting and the manufacturer just dosent care. DONT BUY NVIDIA!!!!!!!!

It's a fair price for a general graphics card just to get a display back on your computer, and that's not too bad considering it includes shipping, but the prices of different models vary a lot. There'll be plenty of online tutorials such as this: But before you do so, sometimes you don't get a display output because your monitor is plugged into the wrong VGA port. Look at the back and see if there is another of the same port located below where it is currently plugged in, if there is one - plug it in there and try again.

My monitor light comes on but there is no signal.

Isolate the problem. Connect the problem monitor into different computer. If the problem monitor worked on another computer, try connecting a CRT monitor to the problem computer. Once the display comes back, change the screen resolution.

No Video Signal

Try resetting the bios. On the motherboard there is a battery that looks like a watch battery. Remove the battery, then replace it again. (make sure the computer is unplugged from the wall socket when you do this)

Does this work?

Graphics Card

  • First you should check your connection from your monitor to your computer, generally it will be at the back of CPU (Computer Cabinet).
See the image: 7fe1438.jpg This will be connected to your PC Video out port:351cada.jpg
  • After connecting again try out. If no luck then you shoud buy a PCI VGA card, its easy to installed in your PC, just remove the cover and you will see a slot with white color, try to insert gentlly it will be fixed.
  • Regarding rate there are too many products, you can search at net for your need.

Thanks & Good Luck

Computer turns on, but there is no display on monitor.

The builtin video card is probably bad. Yes, you can get a PCI video card.
