Pluged wireless PCI -now no video out ??

Hi All,

Wonder if you can help?

I had an old machine which was getting somewhat tired and whilst thinking of buying a new desktop to repace it it suddenly stopped producing a video out signal - would just get black screen on monitor.

So took the plunge and decided to purchase new pc ...all running well for 6 months until now. i decided to put the Netgear PCI WG311 in in from my old machine ...then I got the same issue as with my old desktop video output, I removed the card and still nothing. The monitor and cable are fine as i have plugged it into my laptop ? I have also tried my old pc again and stil no joy with that one.

Could the wireless card be faulty and blown my on board graphics?

Many thanks

It sounds like the onboard graphics have been turned off. Disconnect the mains from the PC, open the side and you will see a small battery and some jumper pins next to it. Remove the CMOS battery and then take the jumper pin out and put it onto the next pin along. Now put the jumper back to the original and then replace the CMOS battery.

Plug the mains in and put the monitor cable back into the onboard graphics 06:13 20 Feb 2010

I would suggest you reseat CPU, the graphic card(if not onboard version), RAM, then power on the PC again.

Hope this helps!
