Verify your connection from your video card to your monitor.

Your monitor should have one cable connected for each computer you want displayed on it. There should never be more than one cable to a single computer, but a single monitor can display (not at the same time) information from 2, 3 or more monitors at once.

Most systems have video output for the integrated video, if you built a gaming PC you should also have input for the add-on video card. Make sure you have a single cable connecting your video card to your monitor. All other cables except power should be removed from the monitor.

The blue connection is called D-Sub, DB 15, or VGA.

Is your blue monitor cable connected to your computer directly? Is it near the top outside edge of the computer (by all the USB / mouse / keyboard connections) or near the middle of the computer. If the answer is yes and near the top, then you are connected to your integrated graphics. Integrated graphics should automatically turn off once an add-on video card is detected

Most gaming video cards don't directly support VGA and come with a converter. Locate the converted and connect it to your video card, then connect the monitor to the converter.

My pc won't detect the graphics card, it says "you do not currently have an XFX product installed" or something similar. I have the xfx 7850 2gb core edition.
