New monitor. Graphics Card Issues

Q: New monitor. Graphics Card Issues

I've just bought a DELL 2209WA, which I'm running on a Radeon 9250 128mb card and XP. I know the card is an antique, but I don't game and only need it for processing photos (I'm a professional photogrpaher).

I was under the impression the card should run this at full res, but I can only get 1280 out of it with the newest drivers installed. I've since tried the Omega v3.8.252 and this hasn't helped.

Any ideas? I'll get a new card if necessary, but would prefer to just get this sorted.

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

...and i'm pulling my hair out now at this point. I've tried two different video cards, same model (but the only type available) neither one works... and yes I had them both in nice and snug and fully plugged in. I don't know what to do now. Please help!

A:New Monitor New Graphics Card Issues!

I would suggest you try (while using the on-board card), connecting to the internet; going to the manufacturers website of your video card and downloading/installing the most recent drivers. Then, disable your on-board video in Device manager, and shutdown your computer. Attach the 9500GT and restart your computer; allowing Windows to detect and install it.

You may also want to go into your BIOS and disable on-board video prior to booting back into Windows with the 9500GT.

See if that helps.

Hello Everyone,

I'm new to the forum/site, and would like to pose a question. Recently I received a Samsung 943BWX 19" LCD monitor. It has 2 screen image modes (Auto and Wide). The Auto setting's display does not "fill" the screen (black borders on L & R sides). The Wide setting is like kind of "stretched" looking. My main concern is the graphics, mainly text. Lettering is not completely "black". My current display settings are 1028 x 728 @ High (24 Bit). Maybe I need some guidance in dialing in the proper display settings or would a switch from analog signal to DVI make my situation better I should mention all my machine has is the integrated video (VGA) connection. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

A:Graphics card doesn't post any graphics to my monitor, computer boots up fine

Its usually just the graphics cards, they do fail especially if they overheat - then video card fan not speeding up might have been the problem - most are dynamic and should actually speed up under load. Depending on the manufacturer of your 8800GTX you might be able to get it replaced under warranty if they have a 3 year or greater warranty.

Lately I have been having graphics problems in games. There are these " artifacts", wierd shapes, triangles, ect that appear and "shot" through my screen. it is hard to explain what it looks like, except that it is NOT normal.

It is hard to say when these appeared. I have recently got a different monitor. It is not new. It is a Dell CRT monitor. I replaced 1 CRT with another because I am cheap .

I have the latest drivers, I think, for my graphics card ( GeForce 5700 LE ). Not great , but not terrible. I play the games with either low or medium settings. I ran a benchmark test that was terrible.

Any ideas as to weather it is the card or monitor?

Today I got a new samsung 27" monitor and whenever I run a game the monitor will shut off then back on about every 15-20 seconds. I have a DVI to VGA (VGA into the CPU and DVI into the monitor) plugged in, and am using a 1920x1080 resolution. I have tried lowering the resolution to 1280x720 and it still shuts off. my old monitor is an 18.5" and it runs perfectly on my CPU. my CPU is an HP Compaq 8000 Elite USFF Desktop Core 2 Duo E8500 3.16GHz 8GB 250GB w/ Win 7. I am not a big computer guy, and cant tell if this is because of my CPU graphics card not being able to handle the high resloution or the Monitor itself. all help is appreciated. thanks

A:monitor shutting off not sure if its my graphics card or the monitor

Try un-plugging PC and monior, and then re-plugging.
Then load defaults in BIOS.
Check if monitor is still being detected as the old one.

New monitor, can be defected, try on another PC/laptop.

A:Add third monitor - graphics card?

I'm not personally into multiple monitors. (My main system uses a 28" UHD one.)

This card looks like it'd work:

EVGA GeForce GT 710 DirectX 12 02G-P3-2717-KR 2GB 64-Bit DDR3 PCI Express 2.0 Video Card -

(eVGA GT 710). I suggest replacing the old Acer since it only does 1680X1050. With a third VS228H-P. you'd need a cable that works with the min HDMI port on the card. There are cheaper GT 7XX cards, but I'm not sure whether any support monitors.

I have an HP Envy Desktop 750-114 and an HP V242h monitor. Colors, etc. on the monitor are flat, dull and almost gray. It's been like this since we got the computer about a year ago. I tweaked the contrast, etc., on the monitor and it's a little better, but still not great. So, do I need a new graphics card for the computer, or a new monitor? I'm afraid if I buy a new monitor, it'll be the same, dull and flat. If a new graphics card is needed, what would be a good one, and would I need a new power supply? My son does like to do gaming, so one that is good for gaming would be preferred. Thanks in advance!

Hi all, new here.
I recently purchased a Chimei 22 inch wide screen monitor. When I hooked it up to my computer the images aren't really all that great, with the small text being blurry. When I try to change my display settings there is no option for 1680 x 1050. Is this because of my graphics card? How do I find out if my graphics card will support this monitor? Did I make a bad purchase?
Any help appreciated.

A:New monitor and graphics card???

First off, don't set the Monitor to the MAX.
Why because if your Video Card can't go that high you won't be able to use 1680x1050. In this case replace video card.

What video card are you using? This is not onboard video, better not be?

1. Go into Windows Control Panel and click on Display
2. Select Appearance Tab
3. Click on Effects
4. Check box: Use the following method to smooth edges of screen fonts
5. Go from Standard to ClearType (for LCD Monitors)
6. Go into Settings
7. Click Advance
8. Click on Adapter then on List all Modes

In the List all Modes you'll see how high your video card can go. Don't worry about refresh rates with LCD monitors. Those are for CRT tube.

Word of caution
Make sure Color quality is set to Highest (32-bit)
Don't max out your video card to support the LCD panel.

For running 4 monitors, you need:

a ~70-150-200 € CPU
a pair of ~30 € graphics cards.

I have a compaq computer(Athlon 64 3500+) that has a built in graphics card. I was looking into throwing in a XFX GeForce 7600GS 256MB PCI Express x16 Video Card (Dual DVI S-Video). I have a pci-e slot open so I know that isn't going to be a problem. The only thing I am worried about is that this new graphics card isn't going to have a vga output, which is the only connection my monitor has. Will I still be able to plug my monitor into the original vga output slot while using my new graphics card? If not, does anybody know how well a dvi to vga adapter works?

Thanks for the help!

My new graphics card (nvidia geforce 6200a, AGP) arrived not long ago, and today I installed it, but there appears to be a problem... my monitor isn't working. When I first put the graphics card in and turned the computer on, the monitor was just flashing orange. I then turned the monitor power off for about 20 seconds and turned it back on and then my monitor was permanently green, but nothing whatsoever. I have onboard graphics too if that's revelant. My monitor is also very old but has worked perfectly fine before.

A:New graphics card - monitor not working :(

Take the board out and see if onboard graphics works. If it does, start up windows and uninstall your onboard graphics drivers. Also look in the BIOS Setup for an Init Display First (PCI or AGP) and set it to AGP. Power off and reinstall your new card.

I installed a new graphics card to my PC and it's using a DVI-I to VGA adapter and it's connected with a VGA (Yes, it IS a DVI-I) When I connect it using that the computer turns on, the monitor turns on, and there is nothing displayed on the monitor. The GPU (gigabyte gtx 770 4gb) is in correctly, I've checked many times. I tried using the mobo graphics and when I do, the monitor stays off and I hear one long beep and 2 short beeps. Whenever my PC turns on the light that shows it's 'loading' goes off after a few seconds and a quick tap of the power switch will shut it off completely. I'm so confused as to what to do and afraid I screwed everything up. I think it's a PSU problem but can't be sure. It's more than enough watts as well.

I get from your post that you have 2 computers and 2 monitors. The card will not work on the 4600 with the flat screen, but it will work on the 4100 with a different monitor. Will the card work on the 4600 with the monitor from the 4100?

It seems that when I turn on my computer or wake it up from a sleep the image on the screen is vibrating / quivering ever so slightly. However after a minute the image has completely stabilized.

My monitor is a xerox XA7 lcd display which is now 7 years old. My graphics card is a secondhand nVidia GeForce 8600 GT.

What's interesting is that I have an LED TV hooked up to the HDMI out on the graphics card and the image on the TV is always perfect.

So is it my xerox monitor that is failing? Or could it be that just the DVI on the graphics card is failing and the HDMI is fine?

Thanks for your expertise!

I'm pretty sure it's been narrowed down to my graphics card being bad from the following post: BSOD - Random - Usually When Playing Video

So, I guess I need to buy a new one. Any advice? I currently have two 17" Dell 1280x1024 LCD monitors and a 40" Sony 1920x1080 LCD TV hooked up for watching movies/tv shows. My current card is in my system specs. I just want to be capable of standard tasks on the two 17's and 1080p video on the 40 at the cheapest possible.

When I go to my device manager and look under Monitors I see Generic PnP Monitor, this laptop is a Hp Compaq Pavillion CQ57. Why do I have this generic monitor loaded for my HP monitor?. I think Ive figured out what I need to do, go to device manager and uninstall the monitor entry. I need some advice, is this the correct way to do things, this is supposed to be a HD monitor and I having trouble displaying some HD movies, its been this way for years.


A:Have I got the right graphics card/monitor driver

If your monitor is working ok now I would just leave it be. Right now the setting labeled "Generic PnP Monitor" is probably the "best fit". BTW I have two HD(1920 x 1080) Samsung monitors and they are both listed as Generic PnP Monitor.

HI, Im new to this forum but I really need help.
My computer has been working for quite some time now, about 5 years, and suddenly i turn it on and usually when i turn my computer on, it hums very loudly, beeps, and then starts to come on. Today, I turned my computer on and it just kept on humming and the monitor showed no signal. I then started fooling around with the cables, unplugging and plugging them back in and that didnt work.

So I plugged my monitor into the regular slot on the cpu and the desktop screen came on. Before my monitor was plugged into my graphics card. Now my computer is on but the hum is constant and never stops. What can I do to fix this situation?

A:Problems with cpu, monitor, and graphics card

Whilst it's on, you may decide to backup any important user data (to CD or USB Flash drive; etc)

One of the best options is to open the side panel up, and then listen to where the "humming" is specifically coming from

After turning the computer off, you also may decide to remove all internal dust
Dust on or around electronic components can cause many issues including no post issues

Dust can either be removed by high pressure air (air cans can be purchased) obviously performed outdoors (really a lot of dust can be built up over 5 years, even 6 months!)
Removing all internal dust, could quite possibly fix the issue of humming

I'm trying to help a friend out. This is the problem she is having:

"I can turn on screen and the power light just flashes. We tried to hook up another monitor and it would not work either. The screen if turned on will flash occasionally white then all black. Something is not connecting somewhere. Someone suggested it may be the video card."

Or is there something else we should be looking at?

I have been asking about another issue related to this question, but decided this might be the place to begin. That thread is found here:

It all started a yesterday while playing a game of Counter Strike : Source , I had alt-tabbed ingame and decided to alt-tab back into the game and as i proceeded to do this my computer locked up ... couldn't move mouse or anything.

So I proceeded to restart my computer. This is where everything went wrong. My monitor was not showing any image, only a black screen with the Analog/Digital box flashing.

So I tried a few things to see what would resolve this problem ...
Removed all cords, plugged them in agian ect.Unplugged graphics card then plugged back in agian.Restarted PC numerous times.Reinstalling drivers
I'm using a DVI to VGA cable connecting my graphics card to my monitor, if that helps.

I've also tried plugging another monitor into my graphics card, with no result.

Onboard graphics work fine.

I don't have another graphics card to test it on ...

In my computers devices it says the video driver is not installed correctly or something along those lines?

Does anybody have a step by step guide on installing drivers?

Specs are :

Intel Q6600 @ 2.4Ghz
2GB Corsair RAM
500GB Seagate Hard Drive
Leadtek 8800GTX 768mb
Antec 900 Case
Samsung 226BW

Thanks in advance

can you restart your pc but in safe mode to get back to windows while the 8800GTX is plugged in? or is the computer not even starting properly?

Hey all,
I've got a bunch of HP Compaq dc5800 and dc6000 small form factors in the office I do IT support for. A couple of the employees have requested the use of multiple monitors, but I quickly discovered that the standard video card in these models does no support this function. I have looked on-line for an appropriate card replacement, but haven't found one that will fit into the compact design of the small form factor PCs.

Does anyone know of a specific make/model of graphics card that will fit? It doesn't need to be super powerful, just capable of running two monitors, (typically they have both a VGA and DVI port).

Thanks for your help.

I'm having a very wierd problem.

Basically when I start my PC up and get to the windows logon screen - my monitor is switching on and off quickly. Like it cannot keep up with a refresh rate. The screen also sometimes goes white.

If I manage to log on to the PC, after the PC has settled the issue stops - so im not sure if it is some odd software causing it or whether it is something to do with the monitor.

I Have a CTX TFT Monitor and a Radeon X800 Pro using the Omega drivers (which I have used for years)

I hadn't upgraded the omega drivers any time before this started, and I have the most up to date drivers now and the issue is still going on.

A:Problems with monitor/graphics card

Definately sounds like the videocard has some issues.

I'd pull the PC apart and verify if the fan on the videocard is working properly. As the PC was stored, it's possible the fan has frozen up from the inactivity time and this corresponds to the time involved before it starts acting up. You might be able to give it a "helper spin" to get it going once again, but eventually may need to either replace the fan and/or videocard if it's just hung up.

I have a Nvidia GTX 580 GPU

I have just bought a Dell UltraSharp U2713HM - running a resolution at 2560*1440.I know it's not a gaming screen, but I still manage to run games pretty well.

But I'm thinking. If I get a better GPU will that make the games run even better at 2560*1440 ?


A:Graphics card and monitor resolution ?

Yes. In general a larger, more powerful graphics card will run games better at higher resolution. It can get much more complicated than that, but in general, this is the deal.

For best advice about what to expect in higher performance from any particular card over your 580 (which is no slouch by the way) you could ask here, or better, over in the Gaming forum where all the graphics-heads hang out. They start talking about Frame Rates and Cuda Cores and I just glaze over!

For instance, when you compare your 580 to my 660 you can see that in some categories your card is better:

I have a Dell Latitude D620 with Windows XP and was infected with malware few days ago. After we finished cleaning the laptop, I have started seeing some problems in the normal mode. When I start the laptop in normal mode, in most cases, it will start with lot of blue stripes all over the screen and will continue to have it even after the system has completed the start up process. In case it did not show the blue strips during start up, it will show up within few minutes after the system has completed the start up cycle. On the other hand, in safe mode, there are no lines at all so this problem is only in normal mode.

Please advise.

You might try uninstalling the video drivers (could be damaged from malware or removal of same)...and then reinstalling the video drivers.

Make sure you have connected the power supply to the video cards if there is such a connection. Since you only have a 230 watt supply, your system may not support the new card anyway. What is your system's specs and who makes it?

Try running this test on the graphics card. Be very carefull with the temperatures.

- In the Run mode box, select "Stability Test" and "Log GPU Temperature"
Click "Go" to start the test
- Run the test until the GPU temperature maxes out - or until you start having problems (whichever comes first).
NOTE: Set the alarm to go off at 90ļC. Then watch the system from that point on. If the system doesn't display a temperature, watch it constantly and turn it off at the first sign of video problems. DO NOT leave it unmonitored, it can DAMAGE your video card!!!

Due to a shoulder injury I need to type and edit photos standing up. I thought I'd upgrade to a large high resolution monitor but wonder if my present system could handle it. The 19" monitor I'm using has a 1440 x 900 native resolution but I want a bigger monitor, maybe 30"and the resolutions are now 1920 x 1200 and 2650 x 1440 at the bigger sizes for photo editing. My HDTV, which I have linked via HDMI is a nice size but the resolution makes everything look very crude. I just can't see what I'm doing.

Do I need to upgrade the graphics card and power supply again? (I had to to install the newer Photoshop about 9 months ago)

Yes you should be fine with that card as long as you don't do any gaming. PCs always look worse on TVs through HDMI, so with a large monitor (even at 1080p) you will see a world of difference.

I picked up a hard drive off the street cause mine was fried.

Just plugged in and went along till i decided i wanted to play WoW.

I installed it and it turns out my video card wasn't installed.

So i plugged the monitor into the APG port, and the computer turned on but the monitor didn't so i guess it didn't detect it, so i figured my card was fried.

Turns out i hadn't installed my motherboard drivers on this computer either. So i did so, and my onboard card is missing one thing to play WoW.

But, now that my motherboard is installed would my graphics card be detected when placed in the AGP port?

Also, can i play WoW if im just missing the Transform and HW video card thing? Because i've read somewhere it would just be extremly choppy.

Thanks in advance.

Hi there Sorry to skip the introduction thread but I m having some frustrating problems I spent a considerable amount of time in the search facility reading articles However none of them seem to show all of my symptoms Sorry if this has already been posted Recently I have been having some type of computer issue It began weeks ago when my monitor didnt t wake up along with my computer After moving the mouse to get out of hibernate or whatever the monitor stayed black Card Issues? Graphics Not knowing what to do I took it to a local repair shop The guy hooked his monitor up to my computer through the graphics card slot Graphics Card Issues? and the same thing happened He then hooked it up to the onboard graphics unit and it worked His conclusion was a faulty graphics card and he recommended I pick up a new one So I ordered a new graphics card which just came in the mail today Graphics Card Issues? I Graphics Card Issues? hooked up the new graphics card and voila the monitor reads quot No Input Signal quot Great So now I have a new useless piece of hardware There is also a previous issue that may be relevant About months ago the exact same issue happened Thinking it was the monitor I purchased a new one and somehow it fixed the problem This reinforced the issue stemming from a faulty monitor However my aunt took our old monitor and she says it works fine I would like to add that I have been using the computer with the onboard graphics unit for a little over a week with no problems other than the computer sometimes requiring a manual restart holding the power button because of not coming out of hibernate It has been running ok without a graphics card but I really don t want to use this onboard forever and I would like to ride this computer out as long as possible please don t tell me it s the motherboard Some specs off-hand HP Pavillion m e Windows Vista Home Premium -bit AMD Athlon X Dual Core GHz Gb RAM GPU s Geforce LE onboard Gefore GT mb RAM factory installed Geforce GT mb DDR brand new Power Supply Watts the card s min power supply is If there are any other specs you need I d be more than happy to get them if you can tell me how that is I have already changed the Primary Video Adapter settings in BIOS It s weird because while I was using my onboard during the new card s delivery time my BIOS was set to PCI and not onboard yet it was still functioning I only found this out today My BIOS has settings PCI PCI-E and onboard And no matter what I seem to do nothing seems to get any signal from the graphics card while all three settings work with the onboard Even with the card in the slot the onboard doesn t auto turn off So I don t think it s the monitor which I have checked on another computer plus it works fine using the onboard I am sure that the card is in place I haven t checked the card to see if the fan is running but I m almost sure I can hear it it just sounds a bit louder on startup The new card does not have any external power supply requirements All power is drawn from the motherboard The monitor is a Soyo Pearl Series quot LCD It has two detachable slots One for DVI one for RGB Onboard uses RGB card uses DVI The original setup consisted of using an adapter for DVI-to-RGB that went from the DVI output from the GT to the RGB reciever slot in the monitor I ve never used the DVI mode on the monitor before I just bought a DVI cord today because I thought that might have been the reason but that didn t work either Any suggestions Could it be the PCI express slot or maybe a software virus issue I have no clue The closest answer on this board that I ve seen has something to do with resetting CMOS by leaving the battery out for minutes and I haven t the slightest clue as to what that is or how to do that I m sorry if this is too much at once nbsp

A:Graphics Card Issues?

From reading your specs one question comes up.
Do you two graphics cards installed ?
The Geforce 7600 and the 9500 ?
This may be the problem if in fact you do.. Try just one card (your newer one), attach it to your monitor via a DVI cable and use the RGB for your on board. This way you can quickly switch cards by simply changing the setting in the BIOS. (Which should work) and if does not then YES it may be some malfunction on your motherboard. You can load BIOS defaults to reset it (so to speak). Removing the battery will do nothing except get rid of passwords etc. You can also flash it to the newest version.

I'd say yes you have a full height card. The half-height is only about 2 inches. If you upgrade your PSU to 550 like you said you would, I see no reasons why you couldn't run a 750. The 750's are not long cards and should fit in your case with ease.

Hey there !

First, I'd like to ask why you'd like to update the driver for the chipset?

Is it not working properly or are you having problems that you didn't
describe in your opening post?

The only real reason to update is to have better compatibility with other
components inside the PC or to take advantage of better performance.

In your case, since the tool explicitly states that the driver which you
want to update is a custom made driver for the said components, (chipset)
I would heed it's advice.

Some manufacturer (Panasonic, Sony, Toshiba , Asus) will customize certain
drivers to work or better perform with their PCs or notebooks.

More often than not, GPU and chipset drivers will be customized to better
perform under all condition the component is meant for.

Do you have a specific problem??

any help would be appreciated

Hey guys, when I turned on my computer this morning, everything ran as usual, apart from my monitor was blank. The monitor was connected to a Nvidia 8600GT via DVI, and soon I realised that the video was instead being output through the onboard graphics card. I checked the BIOS to make sure that the PCI-E 8600GT was still set as default and it was. Having searched for a whole day I think it's time to hand over to you.

Any ideas why the graphics card will not work as the primary display adapter, and if the graphics card is faulty, should I just replace it?

Thanks, Alex

A:Possible graphics card issues

Hi, andymac26

How many hard drives are installed on your rig? On which drives are the games installed and how much space is left on that drive? What applications have you running in the background while you play? Also, what Nvidia drivers are you using now?

I'm almost certain you have already tried the things I am about to suggest, but I'll go ahead and run them by you, anyway. First thing I'd do is check for malware. If the scans are clear, then I would clean my hard drives of junk files and defrag them.

I would recommend that you post your full system specs as that might help the more tech savvy members arrive at a diagnosis.

Anyways, good luck and I do hope the issue you describe is resolved ASAP. Two 580s should make for a hefty, kickass graphics setup.

So my computer is not really turning on anymore I'm not particularly great at putting my computer issues into words but I will try my best to explain what happened So Graphics card issues(?) basically I was playing Team Fortress which has always run fine on my computer until the graphics suddenly went crazy It did that sort of psychadelic type of glitching where there's colours and shapes everywhere but you Graphics card issues(?) cannot see anything I thought it was just TF that was glitching because that sort of thing does happen occasionally but I couldn't alt tab ctrl-alt-delete etc So I rebooted my computer in hopes that it wasn't a graphics card issue Unfortunately graphics were pretty Graphics card issues(?) messed up as soon as I got to the sign in screen and then after I signed in everything was still messed up laggy too broken to function basically So I turned off my computer again and went on one of my dad's laptops to ask my brother Graphics card issues(?) what he thought because his computer recently had a similar issue I tried to turn my computer on again to show him on webcam so he could see but my computer just blue-screened I tried once more and it blue-screened so for now I don't really see a point in turning it on My brother suggested that maybe my computer was overheating- and that was causing hardware issues but when I felt it it did not even feel warm My brother's issue was that his new computer's graphics card was simply garbage and replacing it fixed it But I don't feel like I know enough about my problem to go and replace my graphics card just in case that doesn't work In my mind the best case scenario is that my graphics card is just old - years as old as the computer and it's lifetime is over But the blue-screening and lagging is what makes me really unsure I don't know my computer's exact specs or the exact model of my graphics card all I know is that my graphics card is an average geforce-something or another It could play games like Team Fortress easily and Bioshock barely and it definitely could not handle games like Crysis To be honest I don't take great care of my computer it's fairly dusty on the inside and I leave it on for fairly long periods of time So basically I'm confused and I'm just looking for insight or tips on the my issue and what I might want to do next

Press F8 key straight after the bios/post messages finish, that will get you to the safe mode prompt.

First my specs OS Windows Vista ghz Intel Celeron gigs of RAM gb HDD GFXCard trying to install Geforce FX Alright so this is a simple question shouldn t be difficult to answer I ve read that sometimes you don t have to disable the Onboard Graphics in the BIOS when putting in the gfxcard So I stuck it in without disabling in hopes Graphics detect it? - Monitor won't Card Installing that I didn t have to Well the monitor won t turn on so I just have to pull it back out of the processor The weird thing is it won t even Installing Graphics Card - Monitor won't detect it? turn on if I have the monitor plugged into the onboard gfx slot It won t until I completely remove the GForce FX So I went into the BIOS and saw that the Primary is selected as PCI and not Onboard even though I use chipset Could that be why the monitor is getting confused But here s my main question before I get started in all this if I choose the Primary Video in BIOS as PCI-E would I still be able to see the monitor once it turns back on In other words would I be able to change the bios back if the gfxcard don t work Will the onboard video work regardless of what s chosen in the BIOS menu Would appreciate ANY help Thanks in advance EDIT oh and hey does the GeForce FX support x resolution Could that be the problem it s not detecting it nbsp
