Having problems with your HP Computer Monitors ?

I have an about 2 year old M9047C HP PC. The

\015 I have an about 2 year old M9047C HP PC. The display just stopped showing up when I power on the unit. I was thinking monitor at first, but plugged in a spare and same results. I opened up the base unit, powered it on and it worked... but only that one time. Luck I think. Is there a way to test a graphic card to see if it has gone bad? I notice the mother board has an output, I tried it did nothing.\015

Answers :

Really there is no way to check a video card for problems unless 1.) You have another PC that will support the same connections (PCI-E, PCI, AGP, etc) as the video card you have. 2.) The display still works to where you can run some software that will test the card for problems.

\015\012According to HP's website, I looked up your PC, you may have a graphics card installed in the PCI-Express X16 slot. If so, and your motherboard still has the Intel graphics built in, you can remove your video card.
\015\012
\015\012You stated that your motherboard has another video port and you tried using it but no go. This is because HP has stated that if you have a card installed as well as on-board graphics (this means there are two video ports on the back of PC not including HDMI) then they can not work at the same time. So, try removing the graphics card installed in the expansion slot and use the one attached or built on to the motherboard.

\015\012Still, if all else fails and that does not work, graphics cards can be replaced with your type from $80-$400 dollars. Just depends if you want a mfr. replacement or boosted performance!
\015\012
\015\012If you do get the built-in graphics to work, then your know it was your video card most likely. They are known to go out quite easily in some cases. PCs and PC components are rated to last a certain amount of hours before that fail, sometimes you surpass this time greatly and sometimes they fail short of this. It happens, I have gone through at least 3 graphics cards in the past 4 years because I am cosntantly puching them to max hahaha!!!

\015\012Hope that helps and happy computing. Let me know if you have any further questions.
