ATI 9200 - Monitor Won't Turn On


I

iceanvil

I have an ATI Radeon 9200. I was recently about to upgrade when I had
my computer case open only to find my new video card was AGP when I
only have PCI slots.

So I put the 9200 back in, hook up all the wires again, and turn the
computer back on.

And the monitor doesn't turn on. So I try switching to another PCI
slot. Same thing happens. I try just reinstalling the card in the
original slot and nothing. I even try a second monitor and I still
cannot get the monitor to turn on.

Is there anything I can do to troubleshoot here? I have a Dell
Dimension 2400. When it starts up, all 4 BIOS lights on the back are
green (ABCD) and there is no beeping. I can hear the computer booting
up normally.

Thanks in advance,
Dan

The motherboard has integrated on-board graphics (Integrated Intel Extreme
graphics). At a guess, the system has defaulted to use onboard graphics
only, which is not connected to the monitor. I suggest that you set it up
to use the onboard graphics first. Then you can see the bios setup screens.
The video options in the BIOS for the 2400 model are limited. Just make
sure that the setting for the Primary Video Controller is set to "auto" and
it should automatically detect the card on the next boot.
