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 http://downloadreimage.com/directdownload.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Time to change Video cards... assuming you have already downloaded driver updates.

Hello guys. It's been a long time since I last used my desktop computer because I moved to another country and I wasn't able to bring it. Now my mom asked me to fixed it so that my sister can use it. I'm just having a weird problem with the display because sometimes the screen will go black for a few seconds and then it will appear again. After it appears again, an error below appears saying something about a kernel failure but it has successfully restarted. I updated my graphics card driver but it still happened. My graphics card is a Palit GeForce GTX 550Ti. Any clues to this?

Edit: Looks like other users have been experiencing this issue too. I just saw it after I posted this one.

I've been working on this computer for about 5 hours now trying to get the graphics card to work. It's my friends computer, and he said he bought the motherboard, and it came with a "nvidia geforce 7025 / nvidia nforce 630a" card. It USE to work in the past, but ever since he upgraded to Windows 7 Ultimate, (It says the software isn't genuine), the card won't work!.. I've tried EVERYTHING.. From auto detecting the needed drivers, uninstalling them and reinstalling them.. But NOTHING works. The onboard works, but when I change the cord over to the card port, .. My dell monitor goes from the "self test" screen to a blank black screen, with the power button being orange, not green.)..

Device Manager sees the card, and says it's working properly.. but it's not!

I don't know what to do anymore!.. Any suggestions?

I bought a new graphics card for my desktop yesterday. it;s the NVIDIA GeForce 8400GS. I put it into the slot marked "PCI x16", hooked up the VGA monitor cable, and turned the PC on. The screen stays black, and the light on the monitor stays orange(supposed to be blue) When i hook my monitor onto the onboard vga slot, the monitor works fine.

My roommate tried my card in HIS computer, and it worked. we have the same power supply, so i eliminated that as a problem. I put his graphics card in my pc and it worked fine. what could the problem be?

Friends,

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?

A:Weird unistallable graphics card problem

Run a memory test to make sure your new RAM is OK.

Wouldn't hurt to try a PCI video card in case you messed up the AGP slot somehow.

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.

Thanks!!

A:Graphics card or monitor problem?

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

The fact that it doesn't occur in safe mode...seemingly points to the drivers, IMo.

I would say its the monitor.

Have another PC, graphics card? A friend with a PC and a monitor?

If its No,no,no, then I would go to my local PC shop and ask them to tell you which one it is for sure, and then buy what you need to.

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?

I am trying to install an ATI rage fury 128 pro graphics card. When I finish installing it, my monitor goes nuts. I get three(3) of everything and my Icons have no color(show white) I have a CTX monitor which works fine with a 3D Yamaha card. Can anyone help me with this ? Is it the Monitor, the card, or what? I have downloaded the latest drivers for the card. Until I did that I just got a black screen on the monitor. I realize this isn't the greatest card in the world, but I don't want to spend a lot of money on another card and find out it won't work either. Any help will be greatly appreciated.

Monitor : ViewSonic 19" CRT Graphics Series G90f+

Graphics Card : ATI Radeon X800 XT Platinum

NOTE : Drivers are up-to-date and all cables and connections have been visually checked.

PROBLEM

The screen oscillates between a normal colour cast and a slightly yellow colour cast. Oscillations are typically around 1 per second. Sometimes the screen stabilizes for a few hours on either the normal colour cast or the yellow colour cast and then starts oscillating again.

Any suggestions on possible causes would be gratefully received.

Get to Safemode by tapping F8 on restart about every second and in the option screen use the arrow keys to choose safemode and press Enter.

A:Monitor/Graphics Card - Ubuntu problem

Seriousness: 4/10.

What it seems to be to me is that Ubuntu is for some reason setting your monitor's refresh rate to 87 Hz... "Out of Range 46.4kHz/87 Hz." When your monitor's maximum setting is probably around the 80 Hz mark.

When that message comes up, maybe try to quickly set the refresh rate to 75 Hz?

If that fails, maybe a clean install of Ubuntu is in order?

hi. i am currently having this monitor driver/graphics card problem which i really cant figure out whether it's the monitor driver or the graphics card problem.

my display is set to 1920x1080 but it isn't displaying correctly: it has a 'bigger screen' than what it displays and i had to point my cursor to one side of the screen to "scroll the screen".

so is this problem got something to do with my graphics card or the display driver?
or i was thinking maybe some viruses/worms screwed up some system files.

sorry i'm kinda bad with my english, doesnt really know how to explain.

edit: oh yea i forgot to mention. sometimes when i start up my com it loads normal, otherwise it loads up in this eff-ed up resolution.

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.

I am having a weird graphics card issue on one of my computers. The computer has an XFX GTX 260 216. When I am playing games such as TF2 and left 4 dead 2 the computer crashes every 20 minutes or so. The weird thing is that I swapped out that card for an 8800gt and the computer runs fine. I put the GTX 260 in my other computer and that computer runs fine without any crashes on the same games. Temperature is not a problem because the GTX is running at a max of 55 C give or take a few. Both computers should have a big enough power supply, with both at 750w. Both running Windows 7. What do you think is causing the graphics card to run bad on one computer, but not the other? Thanks in advance for your help on this issue.
 

A:Weird graphics card issue

Have you tried downclocking the GPU core, shader clock and memory ?
If you downclock and the instability eases then most likely it's a Vram or VRM problem- a factory fault and not completely unknown with XFX branded cards-especially the XXX and Black Edition branded versions.
If you have no utility for downclocking then I'd recommend EVGA's Precision utility here:
http://majorgeeks.com/EVGA_Precision_d6209.html
and set up a profile knocking a couple of hundred MHz of the core and memory settings when the card ramps to 3D mode. The utility has a good alround monitoring system so you could install, leave the clocks at stock, fire up a game and when it CTD's quickly check the graphs for anomolies (temp, clock speeds) also.

A:Halo CE behaving weird w/ new graphics card.

Hello again,

As you mentioned you got a new card. Did you remove drivers of your old graphic card and then install the drivers for your new card?

If not, follow this.

1. Download Driver Sweeper. This small program will help you to remove left overs of your old driver.
2. Uninstall the drivers that you have now.
3. Reboot is Safe mode. Run Driver Sweeper. Select "AMD" or "Nvidia" (which ever card you had before this one). This will remove all the bits of old driver and make your PC clean.
4. Reboot in normal mode. Install the latest drivers for your card and reboot again.

Check and keep us posted

Just to keep things straight, you're only supposed to hear the airflow from the graphics card, right? I just got a new one and it kind of sounds like the fan is grinding. I'm about to RMA it. I got an EVGA GeForce GTX 550 Ti.

A:Graphics card making weird noises

UR,
Likely it's fan is hitting it's shroud. You could try pulling it out and spinning the fan manually to see where it's hitting and see if you can push and make some clearance. Otherwise as it's a premium card then just RMA it.

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.

Hi everybody

I am new to the forum and look forward to your advice.

My system is dedicated as a virtual recording studio and comprises

Pentium 4
XP prof SP2
Radeon 9250 128Mb
Cubase VST sx3 recording and production software

My problems arise from the installation of the Radeon. Their tech support advised uninstall and reinstall the drivers and download the new control centre.

This enabled cubase to display and run properly but still left me with an annoying problem on bootup.

I have photos of the screens if it will help. The image is unstable in that the screen breaks up continuously into blue vertical streaks until the windows welcome screen appears and then all is well. Entering BIOS setup the screens are more stable but the text letters are coloured alternatively red and yellow.

any ideas?

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.

(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 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!

The graphics card is not detecting the monitor. the monitor's a crt which the graphics card does not support, the graphics card is a ge-force 7600 by xfx, I used a bridge from the graphics card package. this allows the crt connection to attach to the lcd port on the graphics 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.

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.

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'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?

A:Monitor not working - graphics card??

What is the system itself doing? Aside from the monitor is the computer itself booting up without a hitch? Generally where there is a bad piece of hardware you're going to hear something in the beep codes? Anything? A bad video card will usually stop a system before it starts? Jazz

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.

Have you check your memory. To make sure it is still seated. Sometimes it can get jarred loose. When installing other computer parts .

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

A:Monitor not starting after new graphics card

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?

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.

it is most likly vid card related as the old monitor is more likly to only limit you to resolution such as aoly letting you have a settoing as 800 by 600 as opposed to 1024 by 768.

Hi

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 ?

Thanks

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:

Those are just screw anchors, and one or more may be stripped. They have no bearing on electrical or video problems except to keep the video cable connected and secure. Looks like the computers video card is dieing... besides the stripped screws. Try another monitor to be sure

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.

Any help appreciated,

A:Monitor graphics card acting up?

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

http://www.ozone3d.net/benchmarks/fur/
FurMark Setup:
- If you have more than one GPU, select Multi-GPU during setup
- 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!!!
- Click "Quit" to exit

You could also try reinstalling the graphics card drivers with the latest version.

Hi,

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!

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.

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.

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.

You see no video at all, even no bios screen? If this is true, the new card may be bad

I have a HP Pavillion Model No. p7-1423w I replaced the stock power supply with a 600B 600W Bronze Power Supply.

And installed a EVGA Geforce GTX 660 and have it powered by the new power supply.
When I connect the new graphics card Via DVI-D And I got no signal.

I rebooted into the BIOS to try to disable the on board graphics but I saw no option to do so.

Any help would be appreciated Im nervous about this $320 investment if it doesn't work. Any ideas on what could help?

Did you plug in the 6/8 pin power connectors to the card itself?

Hey guys Mettalknight here

I recently bought a new Graphics Card (A Powercolor HD7750 Pic) this graphics card has 1 HDMI 1 VGA and 1 DVI slot. My old graphics card had the same setup so I thought no problem I will just take my 2 vga monitors and since I already have a converter it will work no problem right? Well I was wrong on that one. So my VGA monitor now works but the one that is converting from DVI to VGA doesn't. Is there any way to fix this? Do I need to go out and buy a new converter?

Thanks a lot for the help!
Mettalknight

A:Got a new graphics card and now my second monitor doesn't work

The problem is that the new card is DVI only on the DVI port. Also what you are connecting with is not a converter but an adapter. An actual DVI to VGA converter can cost upwards of $100 or more, where the adapters are a couple of dollars at most.

Sounds like your old card (what was it by the way?) was intended to do VGA over the DVI port in addition to the native VGA port. Unfortuneatly there is much you can do in this regard as very few if any cards made recently do more than VGA from one port, either native or via DVI adapter.

A:Monitor - NO SIGNAL - when plugged into Graphics Card

You could be unlucky in that simply removing it from the old system has damaged it, it can easily happen, but we cant check that at the moment.

What are the full system specs for the new machine? i.e. exact make and model if its a prebuilt or make and model for the motherboard, CPU, RAM, power supply etc if it is a self / custom build?

How did you disable the AMD card?

A:New Graphics card monitor blank on startup Help

Hi all i guess this isn't any easy problem to fix. I have reset defaults in Bios and also updated the Bios. Since this i noticed in the setup PCI is now set as the primary instead of AGP/onboard.
Thought that i had sussed it ! Switched off for a few mins then started up and again and blank screen again grrrrrrrr. Once again switched vga connector to motherboard vga port and screen powered up but no display. Switched it back over to PCI port and everthing is connected and running.
I feel i may have to disable onboard graphics but there is no sign of it in device manager.
Please someone help Please

Ugh I think I did something stupid Today I was just playing around with Graphics card/monitor Solved: issue my PC HP Pavilion a p and randomly decided to try to install a graphics card I had bought a few years before This computer was working on only its integrated graphics and I just wanted to be able to play basic games I Solved: Graphics card/monitor issue am pretty tech-savvy but I think I may have gotten a little lazy and skipped a step in the installation process The card that I installed is an e-GeForce MX MB It s not anything special but whatever works Anyway I turned off the power disconnected all the cables opened the casing and inserted the PCI card into the PCI port There was something which was already using the slot - a k modem I presume I don t know because I don t use a modem - so I removed it and plugged in the graphics card I reattached the casing plugged everything back in correctly so please don t ask if the cables are attached correctly to the correct port and powered up the computer Here s where the problem started The computer turned on and everything was dandy but then the monitor displayed quot Monitor is going to sleep quot I tried unplugging the VGA cable replugging it back in plugging it into the integrated graphics instead of the supplement and none of it worked I m using our laptop right now but I REALLY need the PC back because it s got all of my work on it What could be the problem I even tried removing the graphics card I installed putting the modem back in place and using the integrated graphics VGA port and that did the same thing Something that may be important whenever I unplug the cable from the computer s VGA port either one - installed and integrated the monitor says quot Check video cable quot This means that the monitor is detecting a source but its unable to detect an input signal as conveyed by the screen saying VGA no input DVI no input Please help Thanks nbsp

Hello, everyone. Sorry to come here and ask questions again.

So recently, my friend is selling away his Acer monitor pretty cheap because he wanted to upgrade and I decided to grab it. It is Acer P223W monitor.

I was wondering...

- Can I run 2 DVI cables from my graphics card which has 2 DVI and 1 HDMI because the Acer P223W only has DVI and I intend to run dual-monitor out of it along with my current Acer P193W.

Sorry about this, I have no idea in the cable connection and everything. I have tried Google'd but my searching abilities sucks.

A:Dual-Monitor Connections on Graphics Card

I don't own one, but a 560ti should be fine for dual monitors.

I believe that it won't support more than two, should you ever care.

Hi all - ok i switched my pc on today and when it came to the winsows 7 login screen my monitor went dark. The blue power light stayed on (didnt go to standby) but no picture at all.

i tried moving the DVI cable to another DVI port at the back of the computer to no avail.

Also when i push the Source button on the monitor i get a picture for 2 secs then blank again....

i have tried another monitor on my pc and all is fine, so isnt a graphics card issue..

I recently got a VGA-HDMI Cable, so I could link my TV to my computer, but when I went to plug it in, my computer did not detect it. I then tried to force my computer to detect it, as many of the things I saw online recommended this, but this did not work either.
Please help me!
Thanks

Also, if its any help, my graphics card is AMD Radeon HD 6400M Series, and as this is a laptop, I cant really get a new graphics card.
