My mother monitor will not come on. All she gets is 'no signal'. swapped out the monitor with two other and the same thing happens. The monitor comes on for 10 seconds or so then no signal. I assume it is the onboard graphics. my question is; can i buy her a cheap graphics card, and thus bypass the onboard graphics?
Any help (especially quick help, she gotta have her daily dose of solitaire) would be greatly appreciated!!!
look at the back of your pc. if it a pre built it may have a video card installed in it. look to see how many and where the video ports are. if there is an onboard video it going to be where the slot covers are as part of the mb case. if your using a vga monitor and a adapter the adapter may no be working. on new build make sure the 4/8 pin pci power is connected if not there wont be any video.
