GTX280 won't send video to monitor

Q: GTX280 won't send video to monitor

I changed my power supply (old one's dead), and now, when I turn my pc on, it won't send video to the monitor.

Its a gtx280, the green light is turning on (so electricity doesn't appear to be the issue), and the gpu fan doesn't turn on.

I cannot access the bios or anything else software related because the motherboard doesn't have integrated video.

Preferred Solution: GTX280 won't send video to monitor

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.)

Hi Enrique,

Minimum System Power Requirement on a GTX 280 video card is 550 W. Check the new power supply's specifications to confirm. Also, is the new video card compatible with your system?

Click on the link below for specifications and details on the GTX 280.

Please reply if you have further queries.

Thanks and regards,

A:GTX280 issue

I dont even understand why you chose a 32 bit OS with all that ram. With that said I think you answered your question.

About 3Gb of ram is recognizable in your system, Adding a 1Gb video card just made it worst.

Upgrade to vista 64 bit and have a nice day.

just a question i have never seen a benchmark comparing two 9800gx2 in sli against three gtx280 in sli

A:two 9800gx2 vs three gtx280

Isn't it pretty obvious. GTX280 is almost as good if not better at some situations compared to 9800GX2, so why wouldn't three of them beat two 9800 GX2... Anyways, by how much, no idea, and I don't care as both solutions are pretty useless in real life.

I'm considering upgrading my video card from the gtx 280 to the gtx 460 when the cards are available for order. Does this seem like a worthwhile upgrade for around $250?

A:Upgrade from GTX280 to GTX460?

Probably best to read some reviews that compare the cards to see if the games you play or the resolution you play at would make a difference. What's the rest of your system like?

Hey Guys So I have a dilemma I live in Sydney Australia and last year I found that I had a weakness that I couldnt help exploiting - to BUY THE BEST DAMN COMPUTER THAT I HAD GTX280 NVidia GTX285 or EVER HAD It started out small the one graphics card PSU Plenty of slots to upgrade the motherboard a decent sound card an O Clockable CPU decent DDR Ram and plenty of space to upgrade See System Specs So my Dilemma is this I have a Single GTX cost me AUD Australian Dollar when this first came out btw our exchange rate was pretty close to the US one at the time -right before wall street crashed so equivalent of US roughly - I know a wrought aye and the HD X comes out a week later I was furious Anyway I have a i Ultra SLI motherboard as we all know can house Nvidia VGA's I was tempted to get GTX 's and then a GTX to do physx calculations - if you know anything about Tri-SLI this actually is FASTER than GTX 's in a TRI-SLI configuration GTX 's NVidia GTX280 or GTX285 arent sold in Australia anymore and GTX 's are so do you guys NVidia GTX280 or GTX285 reckon I should upgrade or wait for DX cards to come out build another system and let my girlfriend use this one she loves gaming too arent I a lucky Im looking into the future wait I see something its a a core i overclocked to Ghz stable the next Gen graphics cards from ATI hooked up in Xfire which WILL kill Nvidia this NVidia GTX280 or GTX285 round -GPU die shrink Nvidia are focussing their technology on copying Intel's Larrabee which doesnt seem to be going too well for them because its all about chips and Nvidia cant Die-shrink even if we gave them millions to do so Im seeing a Watt PSU x x monitors a monitor on the Case Liquid cooling GB DDR Mhz and SSD's in Raid with others complimenting it Lastly no Price Tag Apart from my dream people what do you think

A:NVidia GTX280 or GTX285

an 8600GS will handle all yuor physX needs , sell the 280 its a huge huge waste using it for physX , get some money back on it

Anyway I have a 790i Ultra SLI motherboard (as we all know can house 3 Nvidia VGA's)
I was tempted to get 2 GTX280's and then a GTX275(to do physx calculations - if you know anything about Tri-SLI this actually is FASTER than 3 GTX280's in a TRI-SLI configuration),

possibly in a physX enabled game , im not sure though

Im looking into the future..., wait!... I see something... its a... a core i7 975 overclocked to 5.5Ghz stable... the next Gen graphics cards from ATI hooked up in Xfire (which WILL kill Nvidia this round -GPU die shrink, Nvidia are focussing their technology on copying Intel's Larrabee, which doesnt seem to be going too well for them, because its all about chips and Nvidia cant Die-shrink even if we gave them millions to do so)..... Im seeing a 1200 Watt PSU, 2x (2560x1200) monitors, a monitor on the Case, Liquid cooling, 24GB DDR3 2000Mhz, and 2 SSD's in Raid, with others complimenting it...
Lastly no Price Tag....

wait for the release , then wait for the benchmarks , then wait for them to iron out all the problems that come with new hardware then wait till the drivers catch up , by then everything will be hundreds of pounds cheaper you'll have a stable rig and a big smile on yuor face , all thats going around at the moment is just speculation , take it with a very large pinch of salt

Im in the process of buying a GTX280 but im scared because i dont know if my power supply can run it. i have this power supply

Please tell me if you think i can run it with the converters. I have a GTX260 in my computer right now and it runs just fine with that power supply.

A:PSU concerns on buying a GTX280

in the specification, the 260 say recomended 500W. the new one, 280, recomends 575w [newegg].
one factor would be your CPU, and what it uses. but i wouldnt cut it that close. chanses your CPU doesnt take less than 25W. i would bump up to an efficient 800W, plenty of room to swing.

Basically, bump to 700W+

I've got a decent spec pc, but I've recently bought a 1920x1200 monitor. Now some off my games run a lot slower (understandably).

I've got a 8800GTX at the moment, but I'm tempted to upgrade to a GTX280, is the jump big enough? Am I going to notice a dramatic speed difference?

If not, any ideas? I've got a CrossFire motherboard, but not SLI compatible...



A:Noticable upgrade? 8800GTX to GTX280?

hi there,
right now the GTX 280 and the 4780 x2 are running neck and neck as the fastest cards on the market, but yes you will see a big difference in the performance jump from the 8800 GTX, the 280 and the 4780x2 are among the few that can produce playable Framerates at higher res with the more intense games out there (crysis,far cry etc.

I was wondering, with the new nVidia GTX295 being released on the 5th January, what do we think the GTX280 will drop to?

It's about $400 average at the moment right? Maybe $300 in a few weeks?



A:GTX280 Price drop? With the new card around the corner

The price will likely go down a good bit. The GTX295 is set to be the most powerful card on the market, and so it will displace the GTX280 as Nvidia's flagship card, thus driving the price of the latter down quite a bit. Possibly to ~$299 US. So if you're looking to buy a GTX280, just wait a bit longer and save yourself a few bucks.

Seeing as the GTX295 is a dual GPU card, its release is akin to the release of the 7950GX2 back in the day, and the subsequent price drop of the 7900GTX following that release.

wht should i do???

A:New VGA card does not send signal to monitor

Have you confirmed PCI-Express is enabled in system bios (cmos settings)

To get to cmos, you should see a prompt (for about 3 secs) when starting your computer, this prompt is usually DEL or F2 or some other (depending on your manufacture)
Once in cmos, make sure your video card is set to the correct setting (not onboard)

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.

Hello everyone,

I am looking for an easy way to send videos thru email.

I have a 60BG movie i made quickly with my dash cam and wish to send it thru email, but it seems to large to go.

I tried uploading it to YouTube so I could just offer a link, but it seemed to take forever and it never did upload.

I tried using a compressed folder, but that did not work either.

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

A:looking for a way to send video thu emails

I often send movie files via dropbox. The free version gets you 2GB storage. You upload the file to your public folder and mail the link. I usually split the file into smaller chunks with winrar for reassembly at the other end. Not sure what you mean by 60BG movie - if you mean 60GB, then compress the file (mp4 etc).

I’m 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.

A:Can't Send E-mails With Picture Or Video Attachments

This is a rather complicated problem with many possible solutions. I'd first suggest that you iron out the connection problems with the ISP. The weak signal could be the source of all the problems. Have you friend do the speed test again to see if you've got good connectivity - once that's fixed, we can address the email issues by looking at your ISP and at the settings on your system.

Hello Group,
I purchased a new video camera and took some video of the family pic nic yesterday. I wanted to email it to each of the family members, but after downloading it to my PC, when I try to send it, I get a warning that the file is too big to send that it exceeds the limit. How can I reduce the size of the file without damaging the video? Is it possible to split the file so that cut in half, would automatically reduce the size of the file. Any and all suggestions are appreciated. Thank you all very much.


A:RE: Reducing video file size to send via email

You could try "zipping" it up prior to sending, then attach the zip file, but it may not reduce it much if the video is already compressed. You can also split the file as you suggessted, using 7-Zip:

When you've installed 7-Zip, open it's main window and locate the video file with it using File > Open
Now click File > Split File

Are there any programs out there that can compress video files i.e. avi or mpg, so can make it smaller so can make it send faster via internet ? Such as PKzip make it smaller to send faster ?

I have this 'Intel GMA 4500M' video card. I am trying to connect it to my analogue TV. It has a VGA output on the laptop which would mean it would send an analog signal. I have to connect it to the TV through an VGA to RCA adapter on the TV. When I plug it into the TV with a vga to rca connector I do NOT get a picture. So I really don't know if it doesn't support analog or if I'm using the wrong adapter. Is there an analog signal coming out of the video card?

It says on the WEB it also supports dvi but i don't know if that's DVI-D, DVI-I or DVI-A.

Laptop is toshiba L305 S5933

since my moniter only has a VGA cable i am using the adapter that came in to box, but that is not the problem because i used an S-video cable to plug it into my T.V but i get nothing.

I just connected a new HP LCD monitor and set the resolution to 1900 x 1200 (it's recommended) but now for some reason my divx and xvid files won't play anymore no matter what media player I try. (VLC etc.)
I get sound, but no video.
Just before the new monitor was attached, I was playing a tv show with no problem but I can't figure out what could have gone wrong.

Any ideas?

A:New Monitor, no Video??

Have you tried it with changing the resolution? Are you certain you are saying 1900X1200, that doesn't even sound like a valid resolution and it has to be a very odd shape which has to be causing the issue I think. 900X1440 maybe you mean?

So, I just moved up to College, exciting I know. I unload all my stuff, and anxiously plug in computer to check my e-mail in my new dorm room. I turn it on, and nothing. Computer is on, but the monitor just blinks its RGB test colors. Worried, I've taken out the video card, blown out the slot, and reinserted it to no avail. I've pushed in the ram, made sure my processor is seated correctly, and didn't find any jumpers bouncing around. I've tested a different monitor, and a different video card. Same thing, nothing goes to the screen. I don't hear any beeps signifying any errors. I don't have any idea what else to check. Any one have any ideas for me?

Fixed. I had a short some wheres. Probably from one of my jimmy rigged cords. Always remember to check those people!

Hi, my name is ashton roesbery and i am currently on a windows xp home edition, version 2002, and a service pack 1. it's manufactured and supported by compaq and presario. it has 2.8 GHz and 504 mb of ram. just recently i downloaded spybot search and destroy. i thought it would get rid of the"send error report thing but it didn't. when i clicked "send error report," it brought me to a screen with a message about downloading windows version service pack 2. i tried downloading it but it said, your system doesn't support it". when i click "don't send," it logs me off any internet activity im doing. for some reason it doesn't let me get onto my email. what should i do?

A:"send Error Report Or Dont Send", Thing Keeps Popping Up.

Hi ashton_r,You actually have a couple of things going on here. Let start with the message "send Error Report Or Dont Send". That message is from XP's error handling services. When XP has a problem, you can choose to send a report to Microsoft that helps them debug XP. One of the nice things about this feature is if there is a fix, you can usuall click a link on the acknoledgement window that will take you to Microsoft to download a patch or fix. It is possible that is when you are getting the option to download SP2. SpyBot is a tool to remove adware/spyware/malware. It doeas clean up a lot of "junk" on your computer. It may or may not help with your problem. If you suspect you have the bad stuff on your system, I would recommend using this post Start HereIMHO, I would make sure all viruses, malware, adware, was off of my computer before applying SP2. Good luck... hope this helps.Rigel

I have a Micro Pro laptop, Sis 650 video card, with a VGA connection in the back where I have connected an external lcd monitor. Everything displays just fine on the external monitor except movies. When any media player is open and is playing a movie, there is just a blank screen in the player on the ex monitor.

I know that someone posted a similar question like this in 02 but I'm not sure that it was answered? (

I read somewhere else on the net that it may be because of the level that the movie was playing on because for 650's movie playback is on the default monitor?

Anyways, I'm stuck and can't find any solutions. If anyone could help me I would be the happiest man alive... serioulsy.

A:Video Problem on ex. Monitor

Hi Rumpelstiltskin and welcome to TSF !

Try these possible solutions :

I suppose you're using windows media player. In WMP go to tools => options => performances and set the video acceleration to none. See if the video appears on the other monitor now. If that's not enough you can also set the hardware acceleration to none in the display properties => settings => advanced => troubleshoot tab.

In the display properties, settings tab, try to play with the "extend my windows desktop onto this monitor" and "use this device as the primary monitor" settings when selecting the monitor #2. See if you can set the monitor #2 (the external monitor) as primary monitor. Depending on your video drivers if you click advanced in the settings tab you may find another tab whith some multi displays or multi monitors settings. You may be able to change which screen is your primary display and which one is the secondary display there as well. Here are some links with more info :

Try playing the video with another video player, like vlc or media player classic and move the window manually onto the other monitor via the edge of the screen when the desktop is extended to both monitors.

Well I have a GeForce FX 5600 Ultra, and it has served me well for about a month without any problems at all. But recently my video frames in Counter-Strike have been going down, and just 5 days ago when I try to turn my computer on, everything was fine but my monitor wouldn't turn on, I tried to fix this problem by putting my power supply power higher, now my monitor turns on but it has some odd screen; little gray and black centimeter sized blocks, and it has a few colored blocks also. It just stays like this for a while, then it goes black, then back to the same screen.

Can anybody help me with this problem?

A:Video/Monitor Problem

Well, like many say, if you can take you computer to a lna and have it work, your computer can go through just about anything. Try reseating the AGP card itself, if you havent cleaned it in a while (2weeks is a regular schedule) do so. The pins on the AGP card may creep up or become loosely connected to the slot. Next inspect the card itself for any physical damage. Also, if you transported your computer into and cooler or hotter area than your house (a 70 degree house and bringing it to a 64 degree conference room) this puts strain on your components. Many components when worked in a single area for a long time tend to grow on the environment that they are in. But just reseat your card, check the pins and the card itself for wear. This will most likely fix your problem. My R9800 Pro does the same thing after a while. It does no damage to the card as far as i can tell.

I need a video card to install a second monitor. Chances are, 64mb would work, since I only plan to use it with Dreamweaver. Other than the mb, I don't know what kind of video card would work. PriceWatch has some very inexpensive cards, so can anyone make a recommendation?

Hello The computer screen has a pronounced flicker Monitor/video card? from time to time as Monitor/video card? if the power has been briefly interrupted Would like to determine if this Monitor/video card? is a monitor or video card problem Fairly certain it is heat related The most dramatic example happened last night The screen went dark except for a band Monitor/video card? about a fourth of a screen height displayed about a third of the way down from the top It looked as if the top of the desktop display had been lowered a couple of inches down and the bottom was raised up jammed about five inches Clt Alt Delete restored screen to full so the Start button could be used for Log Off Have detected no particular pattern of occurance other than the heat factor It does seem to become more active when fairly full graphics are involved i e cards displayed in all plots of Freecell Solitaire Has not pulsed at all while reviewing threads and posting this note about and hour Any thoughts suggestions appreciated DAB nbsp

I've had an HP vs17e LCD monitor for about a month now, and it works great. The only problem is that with video like in Windows Media Player and even some games the quality is really dark, even though the normal monitor settings are bright and clear. I'm not sure what's causing this, but it's really noticable. What would be causing this?

Hi everyone. Today I just purchased a new video card, a nvidia 6600 gt AGP. A guy installed and sold it to me but when he tried it on his monitor it worked fine. But now when I try it on my monitor it just pops out as a blank screen. Does this mean I have to buy a new monitor (his monitor was bigger then mine if that has to do with anything) or do I just have to change some settings in my computer in order for the monitor to respon properly. Everything else works the same. My monitor is a Compaq FS7600 15-16 inches I believe. My Main concern is if I have to buy a new monitor(if so how big) or can I simply change this with a change in the settings. Thank you for your time.

A:New video card and monitor help

Monitor size is going to have little to do with it. Did you check to make sure that your monitor is plugged into the AVG card and not onboard? I know it sounds basic, but it's a detail a lot of people forget. That is, if you have onboard video.

Help, all of the sudden my screen is now too white. not sure if it's my monitor or my video card (N vidia GEforce 6150 le) I tried to adjust my monitor nothing seemed to work. I tried to adjust my NVIDIA settings by moving my contrast and adjusting the gamma and brightness i can get the screen to go darker but but something is still wrong with the white the color is way off. I also updated my NVIDIA software still does not work. i also noticed that Google updated my picasa to picasa 3 would this have anything to do with it

A:Video switching between Monitor & TV

When you fit a standalone video card, the integrated one on the motherboard is (usually) automatically disabled by the BIOS as otherwise their respective drivers would both be fighting for the same resources, and that sort of conflict has to be avoided.

If you want to run two monitors, you must forget about using the integrated video adapter altogether. You must either buy another video card to fit alongside your Galaxy card, or remove the Galaxy card and fit a "dual-head" video card which has two output ports which can both be used at the same time (do not confuse that with a video card which may have a VGA and a DVI port but which cannot both be used at the same time).

A:Monitor & video card?!?! what to do?

HD isnt about the default resolutions, eg/ 720p, 1080i, 1080p. HD resolutions are any resolutions that contain more than 900,000 pixels on screen, effectively you have been using HD with the monitor you already have, since that monitor has capabilities of displaying 1,310,720 pixels on screen, you have already been using high definition. however, some people swear blind that high definition is the set default resolutions stated above, which is not true. high definition sources have been around since the 1960s but we were hampered for a screen to display such resolutions at that time. i hope this is an insight to your next choice of monitor, personally, you dont need to go over 22" and with a resolution of 1680x1050, these resolutions are higher definition than a 720p television.

Hi there

The "Hot" item this year seems to be the nice large 4K TV / monitor systems. I'm curious to know where you can get full 4K resolution videos (say movies / TV series) these days -- even the "dubious places" don't have more than one or two items.

Blu Ray only delivers full 1080p so where do you buy 4K content and on what medium do you get it on.

I think Netflix might start doing some streaming at 4K in the new year -- better have a good Internet connection though.

The content I have seen on a decent monitor is superb -- far far better than even the best quality 1080P stuff.

These monitors / TV's are also loads cheaper than a year ago -- looking actually "semi-affordable" instead of only for "Lottery winners".

I have an ATI Radeon 7200 Video Card and a KDS Visual Sensations VS-190is Monitor. My colors are messed up, everything has a blueish tint, there is no red and my greens appear yellow. This problem comes and goes, but sometimes, like today, it hangs around longer. Usually it is this way for about a minute when I first turn my system on, but usually goes away. I have asked around about this problem and I keep hearing either my Vid Card or Monitor is bad. Is anyone familiar with this problem and could you please tell me where it lies and if I have to replace either? Thanks...

we have a Gateway performance 450, we are getting lines or shadows streaking from the text or dark objects when a window is open. most tech sites said it was the monitor, but we replaced the monitor only to have the same problem with the new one. Now we are puzzled, is it the video card or something else? We tried moving the power supply to a different source because we read that it could be a reflection of the signal, but still have the lines. Anybody know why or how to get rid of the lines ( streaks )?

I have a HANNS-G monitor "HW191D" SEVERAL YRS. OLD.. screen suddenly lost video with power still OK.. Then when I turn the monitor off then on, the video returns for 5 sec, then goes black again. I hooked that monitor to my "acer aspire one" and got the same reaction as was happening on my desk top, which is running XP?? Nothing was added or changed to the system before this happened.


A:Monitor loses video

Ok, so its definitely the monitor. Possibly an issue with it's power supply but it would have to be repaired, or just replaced as its rarely worth fixing a monitor. Hanns-G does have 3 year warranties I do believe so if its less then that you could try to get warranty.

Maybe someone can help me figure out what is going on here. When I boot my computer, I only get 4 bit graphics and the system won't let me change it. This is a new problem. I figured a video card problem, but interestingly, when I boot in safe mode I can change and get a good display. This makes me think it is not a hardware problem.

I tried reinstalling windows XP. with no luck.

Finally, I installed Illustrator the day before this started happening. However, the problem did not start until the following day.

I guess I will try a new card, but I wanted to see if anyone had any other ideas.

I just moved my desktop pc from home to my apartment and I'm not getting any display on the monitor now. 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.

Video output should be at the screens native resolution (most likely 1920x1080 @ 60hz).

Get the system working on a single TV and then reinstall the splitter.

Thanks, Paul

A:Digital Video Monitor??????

If the monitor only has a digital input then yes, you would need a video card with a dvi output.
Most have either, vga or dvi, but it's quite possible that newer lcd monitors only have dvi inputs.

Not sure if there is sometype of adapter that can be used, best bet is to buy the appropriate monitor

A:Same monitor, new video card, but very different look

It's possible that a BIOS setting was changed when you upgraded, so make sure you're still set to PEG or PCIe graphics, and set the bus speed to the right generation (PCIe 2.0 in your case), disable multi-monitor, etc. Anyway that's a long shot, the real problem may be that you got a bad video card. If possible, try it in another system and see if the problem persists.

Recently installed a new Radeon 9250 and in World of Warcraft I have noticed weird bright spots across the bottom of the screen, the center of them being white and the edges are all spectrum colors. A friend told me this was 'burn-in' and I shouldn't worry about it, but what exactly is burn in? Could it be artifacts? I've heard of them but I don't really know what they are. The monitor is an old CRT, I'm estimating around 8 years --- would it be that? It's been shaking a little bit (the screen) and it had trouble turning on today.

It is most likely the card. What does you friend mean by "burn in"? Just to be sure; What computer do you have? What brand and model #? Better yet, what power supply and how many watts or how many amps are on the +12V Rail?

Does the screen have artifacts or "lines" outside of World of Warcraft?

also apparently the ATI cards are combined analogue/digital connections not digital only so maybe a cable issue?
