Disconnect the drive and see if your video card works. If not, something else is broken. Could be the video card, the motherboard, processor or power supply. It is possible for a power supply to fail in such a way that it destroys everything connected to it. If that works, you have made some mistake hooking up the hard drive or it is badly damaged. Hard drives have jumpers that must be set correctly to indicate whether it is a master (1st drive on the ribbon cable) or slave (2nd drive on the ribbon cable). The ribbon cable must be correctly oriented with the red strip going to pin 1 (pin 1 should be marked in very, very small print on the drive's connector).

If you're sure that monitor is good, you're on the right track, BUT, you can't install an external video card without first getting in to the OS and installing the drivers. If you meant you added a video card, you still have to get into the CMOS portion of the BIOS to change over to the new card, if the BIOS is not set to automatically detect the card.

Try going through the Clear CMOS procedure for your computer, usually a matter of jumpering some pins on the motherboard - or removing the button cell battery for a period of time (15-30 minutes) with the power cord unplugged.

I installed a new hard drive in my PC. It installed itself after I turned on the computer but it doesn't seem to show up on My Computer as a individual drive. BIOS and the Sys Info recognizes there is a...

Are you sure your BIOS is not showing the old hard-drive you had before you installed the new one?

On the new hard-drive you bought, do the following step

there should be a jumper that came with it, put the jumper to "master",
if that didn't work, put it to "slave", if that didn't show up, put it to "cable select" and try it.
If all failed, totally remove the jumper and try.
Also check in the BIOS to make sure that the Drive is not disabled.
This seems to be a problem from the jumper.

Please rate 4 stars if this helped you.

I am trying to install a pcie-x1 video card on a ibm eserver x206m i salvaged from work. I am running windows 7 64bit . I have tried to turn off on board graphics so that it takes the video card i just...

I know this is really old, but I had the same problem on my 206m 8584 with a pci-e x1 video card. I had to upgrade bios first, but nothing seemed to change, bios only showed onboard video as option and windows perfectly recognized the exta card. I went to windows video settings, it showed both video, onboard as main and active and extra as inactive, changed the second video to main and active and switched the plug to finally see my enhanced video. Only problem is that bios screen won't show up on pci-e card, so I start seeing something only after one minute :) Hopes this saves someone else some time.

HP a1600n desktop will turn on but will not boot. Does not run thru BIOS, keys/mouse check. HDD spins up, CDROM goes thru check then just sits. Monitor doesn't kick in because doesn't get to video check. ...

you can try buying a cheap pci express video card and install it inside one of those slots and connect your monitor to the new video card and see if it will boot up. some computers have a beeping sound if something is wrong. if theres no beep then try to remove everything like memory and hard drives and just leave the power supply. if it still doesnt beep when you restart the computer, then it might be the motherboard.

if nothing was showing up on the screen I would have checked the Video card first as its one of the simplest things to check but you need to borrow someone elses.

The light would be on cause the BIOS is looking for a hard drive. If you connect speakers or headphones see if you can hear windows booting up if there is something installed on it. If you can hear windows starting up good! its probably your video card. If nothing then your motherboard might be the culprit.

The pci express slot on that computer is an option, so it may not be enabled automatically when shipped, I would suggest rebooting and go into the BIOS settings and make sure the PCI slot is enabled. Then strile F10 to save and exit, reboot and try it again.

Your new Foxconn motherboard Primary Graphics Adapter settings in set to onboard vga that is why there is no display in your monitor. Do not install yet your agp video card. Use first the onboard vga of the motherboard.
Power up your computer and go to the BIOS settings. Locate in bios about the Primary Graphics Adapter settings and then select AGP. Save changes and the exit. Turn off your computer and now install the agp video card.
