Need help about my old PC HP Compaq dx2250. it was working fine and then the Video Card stopped working. It's dead. And at pc shop i was told that this PC has on board video card so should run fine, if i didnot needed it for games an so.
I connect PC VGA slot(one that on the motherboard) to desktop and turn PC on, the fans start forking, mouse starts working, everything seems ok, but the screen remains black. (and motherboard gives no extra beeps)
These are my PC parts:
HP dx 2250 microtower
MB: Micro-Star MS-7297 Ver 2.1
CPU: AMD Athlon 64 X2 4000 (2.1 Ghz)
PSU: Bestec ATX-250-12Z
RAM: 2xKingston 2GB 240-Pin DDR2 SDRAM DDR2 800
PS. i know its wery old PC, now i have new one but i was wondering if i could just bring this old PC to "life"
Yes, that's what I was asking. Sometimes, just the presence of a discrete graphics card is enough for your system to automatically disable the on-board graphics. I think your next step here would be in temporarily install another discrete card and see if there is a enable/disable on-board graphics setting in your system BIOS.
Try "Alt" or "F2" or "F11" key to enter into BIOS setting when PC boot up. You can activate internal graphic peripheral under set up. Make sure your monitor input mode is "Auto" or "Analog". That VGA port on the motherboard ,D-Sub, sends only analog signal.
