Having problems with your HP Pavilion a305w (DM181AR) PC Desktop ?

I can't get monitor to come on even though the power light is on

\015 I bought a new graphics card but I can't get the monitor to come on long enough to disable the integrated video off and turn the card on.\015

Answers :

Since it's a new card and you know it's working, install it last. Take it out for now and use the integrated video. Start the computer, enter the BIOS setup and disable the integrated video. Save the new settings and shut off the computer. Then put in the new video card and restart.
