A:No display on monitor from video card

Does your motherboard come with an on-board VGA? Try connecting the display monitor to that.

So both my monitors were working fine and fully functioned untill I updated my video card. It now only displays on one screen, but if i disconnect the working screen and restart it shows is on the other screen and vise-versa.

So, I got a new video card at work to install and nothing will show up when I plug it in. I can go through the computers VGA and it works fine, but when I go to the video card only a black screen. Any help? Can't download drivers either, only black screen upon boot.

A:Display Drivers/Video Card and Monitor Screen


Have you tried removing the graphics card and using the on board VGA to boot into windows, you could then install the required drivers.

Then shutdown the PC >> Insert new graphics card and see how that goes??

I'm not getting an image on my computer screen. Tried second monitor without success. PC savvy friends have told me it's the video card or the motherboard. I purchased a new graphics card.

A:Help! I lost display on my PC monitor! video card or motherboard?

first off dustin, welcome to techspot.

It does sound like a video problem...

Before we can help you out..we need a bit more info.

First off, have you made anymjor changes to you PC? Or have their been any problems before this happend? (flickering screen etc etc)

Replacing a video card is not hard at all, but we need to determine if your PC used an actual video card, or the video output is built into your Motherboard.

If you could tell us you PC make, Model, and some simple hardware specs, including you motherboard, and video card (if you use one)

If you dont know how to get them (specs), dont panic, its not that hard. You should consult this post found here

Post back with your specs, and we can go from there....

Good luck

Took an old Dell XPS 630i with ATI 4850 old card that crapped out on me and replaced it with ATI HD 7750. I am sure i properly seated the card but when i connect it to my monitor all i get is a black screen... When I boot up the machine i can't even see BIOS logo.

Monitor settings itself can change from auto detect, Analog, Digital. Using a DVI to VGA adapter so im on Digital Setting - which should be correct because i see the floating color box...

Card spins, pretty sure 750w PSU works fine, etc ... didn't touch anything else. Also I was reformatting windows 7 on this PC and didn't finish (It finished installing windows but i got to the screen where it told me to enter my Name for PC and i just turned it off) I doubt this has anything to do with it but thought i should mention this.

I have an HP ZR22w monitor with three inputs: VGA, DVI, and DisplayPort. I want to hook up a computer to the DisplayPort, but my video card id HDMI out. All the cables are sold as DisplayPort source out to HDmi monitor in. Are these cables reversible?
Can you recommend the right way to hook this up? Is there a cable that exists for this situation? Do I need a combination cable/adapter?

There s a lot to this story so I ll try to condense video uninstalled card after Monitor won't I display drivers it as Monitor won't display after I uninstalled video card drivers much as I can A few days ago Monitor won't display after I uninstalled video card drivers I was watching Netflix and my monitor suddenly went blank I could still hear the show so I unplugged and replugged the cords until it finally came on This happened about more times that day The next day I turned on my computer and the monitor didn t come on I did the same thing and it finally came on It would go off randomly throughout the day just like before Now we get to today and the same thing happened l except today I couldn t load any of the games I play I tried to launch over watch and it told me my video card wasn t compatible I tried to launch counter strike global offensive and it forced me to have the lowest settings possible So I decided to update my drivers I had been putting this off for some time just because everything seemed fine When the driver update would ask for permission from my computer my monitor would go blank and I would have to unplug and replug like before If I tried to open task manager the monitor would go blank A lot of the times when the monitor would go blank icons would be moved around on my desktop and the programs already open nbsp such as steam and battle net would shrink So anyways I was able to update my drivers and so I tried to open up over watch Again nothing changed and my driver software says I still need to update So I was browsing the Internet and someone had a detailed explanation on how to completely remove all graphic related drivers and reinstall them So I decided to try this I had to restart my computer to complete the first task which was simply uninstall the drivers So I did and now no matter what I do nothing shows up on my monitor Specs AMD FX- eight core processor AMD r fury x gfx cardGigabyte -gaming motherboard Corsair vengeance gb of ramEither a watt or watt psu - rose will I was on the irc chat earlier and the suggestions I had gotten there were to either plug in my older graphics card Ati Radeon and connect my hdmi to dva cord into that or find a dva or the other kind of screw plug to display cord and connect that instead of the hdmi port My monitor has both screw plug ports and an hdmi plug The fury x only has hdmi and display ports,157620.0.html

A:Graphics card, monitor or just cables?

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

Its a weird problem. It has been working fine for over a year and little bit more. Suddenly the monitor lost input signal, and went to sleep, while the computer is still running. The monitor hasnt gain signal even if i restarted. It keeps sleeping, because it doesnt have any input signal. Also when i leave it on it suddenly gets signal an has display for a few secs or min, then loses it again. What could be the problem? If it never had happen before. What should i do or any recommendations, Suggestions?

A:No monitor display, no input signal

Update your video card drivers from the manufactures site. If you cannot get to that point, unplug your power and video card cord from the back of your computer, then hold in your power button for a minute. This will suck up the remaining electricity. Then of course plug it all back in. If this works still make sure to update your drivers\windows update.

I recently upgraded to a 450 GTS and bought a new PSU. I have the PSU working and am on it right now. The problem is that when I place my 450 GTS into my computer and boot it up, my moniter says "Check Video Card". I am currently using my on-board graphics card to get my PC to start.

I also hear the system booting and loading through my speakers but my monitor is the only problem. Been frustrated for hours.. Please help.

- Power Supply: RF-500WPS2 (500W-600W Peak)

Could this issue be because I need a bigger Power Supply. The graphics card I currently have requires 450W and I ran it on my other PC with the same Power Supply.

Okay, so I looked for some answers involving this but nothing seems to quite fit my issue. I woke up this morning, turned on my computer and after some loading it stopped just short of the log in screen and told me that it couldn't display the video mode.
Now, I'm not sure what's happened here. I haven't done anything to the computer recently, and currently I'm running my computer in safe mode, which works. I tried to hook another monitor, but they both have the same issue. Nothing major has been done to this computer, and I don't even think that anything was installed. I was using it last night, got off, went to bed and then woke up to this.

A:How can I input video signal to my laptop monitor?

Welcome to TechSpot forums

It is unlikely that the laptop's video capability has a video in connection. So unfortunately I doubt this is a possibility. One of my workmates does have a USB tv card device which feeds a TV signal into the computer and this works with a laptop (aerial connects to device, device connected via USB connection to laptop).

Something like the devices for sale from this website would be required:

If you post details of the laptop model we will be able to confirm whether it does or does not have a video in capability.

Hi. This question will immediately expose my ignorance about video capture. I'm interested in getting a Leadtek Winfast DTV1000S card, mainly to convert some videos. I see from the specifications and the pictures that this card supports composite video and S-video connections. However, I can't find any reference to the audio signal, and how that is captured. I suspect it would probably be through a separate audio line from the source into the line-in on my PC, bypassing the DTV1000S as such. Could any wise member please take pity on my ignorance and tell me how the audio signal is handled in such a case.

Many thanks

A:Audio input to video card

Where do you capture from, and with which program? If it's an external source, say VHS tapes or such, you use a * connector to 3.5mm audio jack to the mic line in plug, and select the program to capture audio from line in. If it's from an internal file from the computer (some would need to do this) or a digital broadcast, or whatnot, you just set the program to record sound from the default audio output device. Make sure the program you use supports this.

I would like to get a video from the Raedon HD 7000 series, more specifically, 7700 or 7800.

I managed to find my computer's specs online and want to ask if I were to get a new card, would I need to upgrade anything else, like a better PSU, or a better CPU to prevent the card from being bottlenecked. I don't mind if it's bottlenecked a bit, but I would like to run Skyrim (as well as BF3) on high or ultra and be able to play Witcher 2 more smoothly.

The computer specs can be found here on the official HP site. I hope this is enough information to answer my question.

If I have forgotten or you need anything else, feel free to tell me and I will update ASAP.

A:Thinking of upgrading my video card, can I get some input?

Well you'd definitely need a better PSU than that 300W one which came with the HP. What's your total budget for the card + PSU?

Your i7 2600 processor is fine... actually it's more than fine since PC makers generally always tend to make CPU-heavy and GPU-light machines.

I'd say the power supply may have failed such that it no longer provides enough power to the graphics card even though it can supply some power to other parts of the PC. A 450W or greater PSU is recommended for the Radeon HD 4850.

I re-installed my old video card and the S-video worked fine, so it seems to be an issue with the new video card. My question is this: do I need to tell Windows how to look for the S-video input through this new card, or should it find it automatically? I think the S-video input is broken for this video card, but am not positive.

Hey everyone,

I'm running an HP p6214y with an nVidia GeForce 9800 GT. I recently got a Sony Bravia 32" TV that I was hoping to run in dual screen mode with my HP 2009f monitor. The video card has two DVI out ports which I'm using with two DVI to VGA cables. However, I've found that when I hook the Sony HD TV up to my video card, the video card will stop sending an input signal completely randomly. This sends no warnings or errors to the event log either. I have a 750watt power supply as well. Has anyone else had this problem?

Thank you!

HI, I'm planning on buying a new graphics card. I have an Inspiron 720. I have a premade computer with Intel Intetlrgrated Chip set G4/G3. Please ask for extra specs if required.

A:How to install/see available graphics card input slots

First you must look in the manual (and in the case) to check there's a pci-e slot and what version it is. Recent gfx cards are v3, which is somewhat backwards compatable with a v2 slot, but not necessarily with an earlier version.

Next you have to decide what type of gfx card you need - either hi-end for gaming or something cheaper, say, just to run multiple monitors. For gaming, you should check the websites of games you are interested in to see how powerful a card you need to play their game.

When you've got an idea of the type of card you need, you should check that the psu in your pc can power it. Store bought computers are built down to a price and don't allow much leeway for extra power demands (eg from the extra gfx card). A lower end card will probably run ok with the standard psu. A powerful card uses more watts and usually needs extra 12V power connectors that plug directly into the card. Standard desktop psu's can't usually supply enough watts for a hi-end card (or have the 12V aux connectors). In that scenario, you have to invest in a new psu.

A few ideas for you to think about.

So basically i did bunch of dual display setups before but using two video cards or using one video card with two outputs but this is the FIRST TIME im trying with a built in intergrated card and a PCI card.

Heres the issue.

I hooked up the PCI video card and when i plugg both monitors in, the intergrated video card gives a yellow exclamation point in the device manager and nothing shows up on the monitor. Only the PCI video card shows signal..

I tried un-installing both cards, redoing it from ground up, tried disabling and renabling both cards but only one monitor shows up and that is the PCI card.
What do you guys think?



Check that the on-board video is enabled in the Bios.

It's possible you can't have both working at the same time, should be able to check this if you know what motherboard it is.

Hi computergeekguy,

Since you are getting 'video' on an 'external display', it appears to be an LCD related issue with the laptop. You may also try to run the LCD BIST (Built in self test) to check the 'LCD display performance' when separated from the 'graphics'. You may find the following steps useful:
- Power off the laptop
- Press and hold down letter <D> on the keyboard
- Power the laptop back on (continue to hold the letter <D>)
- Laptop enters in the 'LCD diagnostic environment' (check the performance)

If your laptop does not enter the diagnostic mode, you may also try to release the 'flea power':
- Power off the laptop
- Unplug the AC Adapter and Battery
- Press and hold down the 'power button' for 10 - 15 seconds
- Plug the 'Adapter cable' back in and launch the 'LCD BIST' again

Do reply if you have any further questions. I would be glad to assist.

Windows automatically updated last night before shutting down. When I turned on the computer this morning, the HP w2207h monitor was not functioning properly. Each time I rebooted, I received the message "HDMI Input: No Input Signal" before the monitor went to sleep.

I do not believe it is a problem with the sleep and display settings as I have dual monitors and the EN9910 is functioning properly; both are set to NEVER anyway. Further, I have plugged our SONY television into the HDMI port and it works just fine.

I have also plugged the monitor into another computer, using the same cable, and both worked just fine. The hp monitor also functions in the utility mode. Problem seems to exist only when Starting Windows.

This has happened once before with a Windows Update, but I don't recall the solution.

Please help.

But mate I also think you may have answered it yourself in another way. Can you remember when this started happening? If so system restore back to before that date.

Then it is just a matter of downloading any updates if this is what is - one or two at a time until you find which one is the culprit. Make a not of that one and each time it comes up untick it to download / install.

Iím in a dilly of a pickle here.

When playing video, my screen will go black for just a second and then return to normal. With most video players, the video will then usually play, but when using BSPlayer ( to watch video, the screen will go black, return to normal and then video will not play.

It gets worse. Sometimes, I will be minding my own the computer will still be running, but then, the screen will go black, then the monitor will give me the old message:
"self test / check your pc and signal cable / monitor is working"
The computer will still be running, and the only way I know to get picture back is to restart the computer. I have gotten this error the most when the using BSplayer, which sometimes causes the monitor to just shut down like that. But other video players like divx, QuickTime, and windows media player will all occasionally not play or cause weird image problems to crop up on the screen

Also, if the computer freezes up, hitting ctrl+alt+del gives me a black screen with garbled white text.

I have updated my NVIDIA drivers and installed the latest bsplayer version, but neither of those actions fixed my dilemma.

The monitor just blinks on and off when connected and doesn't show anything at all, tried reconnecting numerous times. My computer runs fine; all fans are running, but i noticed that my computer gave off two quick beeps 10ish seconds after booting. so both the computer and the monitor do work individually, is there something else im missing?

A:No video display on monitor

With out any video output how are you determining the computer is working properly? Because you heard a couple beeps and the fans are running? Do you hear the Windows theme when it would normally reach the Desktop screen?

First thing I would do is opent the computer case and make sure that nothing was jarred loose during the move. Such as a video card coming partially out of a socket. Make sure all the power cables to the motherboard are secure (best way is to disconnect then reconnect the plugs). Check to be sure the ram is seated fully.

Is your computer even working--does anything ever show on the screen other than those messages?The 'check video cable' message is coming from the monitor. The 'going to sleep' message may also be a monitor message.If your keyboard has the power management keys: might see if you can use the 'wake' key to get the computer going. But I suspect your computer isn't working and the messages are generated because the computer isn't sending a signal to the monitor.

Most solutions involve "reflow of video card". I am a computer tech in my town and have never heard of this process. Please explain.

A:No Video either on display or external monitor

Don't do it. A reflow is a very crude fix that will not last even if it seems to work temporarily, It involves blowing heat directly onto the video chip to melt the solder and reestablish lost connections. Real tech shops do a "reball" which properly applies the video chip back to the motherboard. We don't really hear about "reflows" any more. That was about a specific model series almost 10 years ago and I am not aware of your model having similar issues. If the video is dead, then your best bet is a new motherboard. You can also find shops that have a presence on eBay that have professional equipment needed to rework a motherboard at the chip level and their services are about $60-100 to rebuild your motherboard.

I searched the forums but display video static/distortion Monitor I didn t see anything that seemed to match the problem I m having For the last maybe six weeks I have been having visual distortion problems on my computer whenever I do the following Use DS Max Use Google Sketchup Watch any video file from the hard drive Monitor video display static/distortion View slideshows on my computer Here are some examples of what I am seeing My computer otherwise works normally but while watching a video or trying to use a D program this happens It happens on both my CRT and LCD monitors I have checked and double-checked the cords and I ve had this video card for years yet this problem just started happening The only thing I can say might be the cause is the installation of DS Max which I did in early June yet uninstalling the software did not eliminate the problem If you ve seen anything like this and can offer any information or advice I d be very open to it Thanks in advance nbsp

Is there a way to get the real-time output from a video camera onto a computer monitor without having to use a computer in between?

To be clear, all that will be present will be a video camera, a computer monitor, the necessary connecting cords


whatever adapter box/device to adapt the video camera signal to a computer monitor.

I have a gateway laptop that I run lid closed with a 22" Gateway wide screen monitor. I installed the klmcodec340 pack on it a while back to be able to watch avi's and what not. However the widescreen monitor still won't display video but when I open the lid on the laptop, that screen will display the video while the monitor won't even when it is set to duplicate the screen. Any suggestions?


A:Monitor Won't Display Video, Not codec problem

By "video", do you mean the actual video content inside a media player or display in general as in the desktop background, applications etc?

I have been using the same set up for just over a year now and yesterday my monitor (which is just a TV with a HDMI port) stopped receiving signal.

I can boot up the pc and get the BIOS, which I can go into and see everything fine, as well as the windows loading icon but when it would normally go to the log in screen I get nothing.

I can however plug in an extra monitor (an actual Samsung monitor) with a VGA cable and it all works fine and on top of that if I connect the TV at the same time it works perfectly fine as a second monitor.

However if I try to turn off the VGA monitor and just use the HDMI TV then I get no video signal again.

No idea how to get my main TV monitor working again. Totally stumped.

OS: Windows 8.1
Processor: Intel Core i5-4570 CPU @ 3.20GHz
RAM: 8.00GB
Video Card: GeForce GT 620
MOBO: Asus Ranger VII
PSU: Corsair 500w
Monitor: Technika 22" HDMI + Samsung SyncMaster 2032 VGA

Running multiple monitors:

Display 1: ATI ALL-In-Wonder Radeon
Display 2: ATI Xpert 128 (also tried Diamond Monster Fusion)

The ATI TV display won't work with the multiple monitor enabled. I get sound, but only a little strip of video, and it is frozen, sort of a green and purple display. This worked fine under Win98 (and ME).

All drivers have been updated. I tried changing color depth (per ATI support). Didn't help. If I shut off the second monitor and turn TV back on, it works.

Anybody have a similar configuration?

I just got a new asus nvidia geforce 7600 GS 256mb. It's an AGP card, and I put it in the AGP slot on my Gigabyte 8TRX330-L motherboard. I made sure the auxilary power cable was plugged in, plugged the monitor signal cable in and turned the computer on, but nothing appears on the monitor. Anyone know what the problem could be? My power supply is an ATX 12V 2.0 400w supply, so I dont see how there could be a problem there.

I'm about to buy this little number: gs

But I'm wondering what sort of pre-check I should do before actually putting my money toward it. I remember once before I was checking to see if my fan or power supply or something was good enough to run it so that it wouldn't overheat or anything but I'm not sure if the thing is still good enough to run this card.

hi when i install my new graphics card which is an ati x1950 pro i get no signal on the monitor I have a 650 watt psu, so theres more than enough power. i have a new mobo which is an asus one. the fan on the card spins so power is getting to it..... i just don't know what else to try ... any help would be greatly appreciated..... thank you!!!!![/B]

Also i did have it working once it booted up with the graphics card in and it then read the full 2gb of my ram so i began installing drivers... but when i restarted it didnt come back on.. i have uninstalled the onboard vga driver but still no luck....

Pleas Helpppp!!!

A:No display on monitor when instaling graphics card.

This sounds as if it is either a failed card or incompatible drivers. Remove the card and boot using the on-board. Uninstall all the drivers and the reboot.
Visit the ATi website and find the latest driver set for the card and download it.
Power off and then refit the ATi card. If it boots and you have the default 600x800 image then install the drivers. If it fails, then I reckon it is dead and you should take it back.

I have this PC for almost a year then suddenly it hangs. I restarted it but unfortunately it won't boot anymore. It say's "NO SIGNAL" on monitor. No POST message from BIOS. You can't see anything aside from the LOGO of the Monitor which is LG.

what I tried are:
1. Re-seat the Video Card. Don't work
2. Re-seat the RAM/ Memory Card. Don't work
3. Reset BIOS. Don't work
4. Enter Safemode (but there is no display). Don't work
5. Hooking it up to an on-board display and it works.
6. Re-place the video card. and it works.

what I would like to ask is, when I used the old 9400GT Graphics card, It shows no display but I hear the chime sounds from windows logging-in. so I'm a bit curious that the card isn't busted at all. because the MOBO still detects the card but no display.

So is there anyway I can fix this issue?

the cards ports are dead, the only way to fix these are to replace and solder the ports on, more hassle than the cards worth TBH, you could use it as a dedicated physx card i suppose

I have a 5 year old ViewSonic E790 19" display, and a Geforce Ti 4200 graphics card.

I have updated all the drivers.

Once in a while the display corrupts, showing patterns that look like large pixels. Sometimes it appears as a series of vertical lines, each 1/2 to 1" in width.

Rebooting won't fix it, I need to power off the computer and power on to recover.

Any thoughts as to what it is?

Instead of rebooting have you tried turning the monitor off, then back on after a few seconds?

What was the older video card you had? Did you uninstall all previous graphics drivers drivers before pulling out your old card? Also ensure that your PSU provides sufficient power to run your GPU.

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.
