Tower not sending anything to my monitor - PC Desktops


Answers :

If you have recently added another graphics card to replace an ON-BOARD one then you would have to tell the BIOS that you had done that and wanted the new display card to be the main one.

\015\012If on the other hand you are trying to use two monitors you would tell your graphics card to do that using the software that you installed with the graphics card.
\015\012If you have a dual output monitor you may want to also check with your driver software that it too knows which is primary display
\015\012
\015\012If however you are trying to send the picture to a TV then you need to give everyone a chance by telling them how.

\015\012If you have access to another monitor and you still get no display after all the above then it could well be that the card has died
