Preferred Solution: Disabled my video card, can't see anything

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Hi, and thanks in advance for reading this.  At the shop I work at, we'd like to run three monitors on this Pavilion.  Nothing crazy in terms of video requirements - normal desktop stuff and YouTube videos. The onboard Radeon doesn't have all the ports I needed, so I picked up a GeForce 8600GS card from EVGA with 1gb of onboard memory (thinking that I'd just run the 3rd screen off of it). Now it seems the onboard Radeon is disabled.  I get two screens lit up properly when they're plugged into the EVGA card, but nothing when I connect them to the onboard ports. I assume one of three things has happened:1. The onboard card is automatically disabled when a discrete card is installed.2. I can't run these particular AMD and nVidia cards in the same box (which would be my screwup, I realize).3. Something I haven't thought of yet. Anyone know what's wrong and how I'd go about getting what I want (ideally both cards active)?

I accidentally disabled my video card in the device manager and now my computer starts, but I can't see anything and I don't know how to re-enable it. There were 2 graphics cards options in my device manager: 1) ATI Radeon 3000 HD and 2) ATI Radeon HD 5450. I disabled Radeon 3000 (in the hopes that it would default to 5450) and now nothing comes up. I've tried resetting the BIOS via the coin battery on the motherboard, but that didn't work. Plz help!

Uninstall it...and then restart your computer as suggested by Windows, and the computer should recognize it. By the way, why did you disable it ?

I'm sure there is an easier way, but I'm not going to suggest anything that I'm not sure about.

Hi

I bought a new computer and I realised that the performance was not living up to what I expected. I worked out that there was an issue with the graphics running off the Intel 4600 ( I think) card rather then my NVidia 960 so I decided (rather foolishly) to disable the intel card and now I cant get any picture on my monitor. I has tried restarting the BIOS by removing the battery on my motherboard( Gigabyte GA-Z97P-D3) but that hasn't helped. A mutal friend suggested running the integrated graphics card directly to the monitor but I really didn't know how to do that. So I anyone can help me with that or come up with another solution I work be immensely grateful

I recently had to completly erase and reinstall windows on my PC. Everything worked well, but i noticed my graphics were not as smooth as they had been prior to the reinstallation. I had installed an Asus video card some years before, and thought that after the reinstall the drivers for it needed to be reinstalled. However, going into Device Manager, there was no mention of any Video Cards, or a Display Adaptors Tab, even after showing the hidden items.

After blundering around for a while, trying to figure out a way to reinstall my Asus video card, i disabled the video card (must be the default card for my system, not sure on this) and was prompted to restart my computer. After restarting, following the Windows XP logo, I just get a black screen, with no cursor or anything. I have tried starting in safe mode, but after 5 minutes (estimate) it was still on the .dll file screen and had not changed.

Is there any way to try to get my screen back? I'm at a friends house trying to find something I can do besides reinstalling, and all I can think of is to blindly try a system restore, by booting up normally, pressing the windows key, typing in "system restore" and hitting enter until (hopefully) my computer is restored to a previous state.

Any ideas? Sorry for the wall of text, but i really don't want to have to re-install my OS again, as I have some sensitive data, and 40gb worth of iTunes that would be a pain to put back in.

A week ago, I was playing a game on my pc and the computer froze, when I restarted and played it again, it froze again, the third time I restarted, I noticed the computer froze when the screensaver came on, leaving red lines on the screen.

After that, I noticed red dots on the Dell splash screen, and green dots when windows was loading. Windows never finished loading, and I was able to eventually get it to load by going into safe mode and disabling the video card.

I have since replaced the PSU and still have the same problem; I just want to be clear that the problem is very likely the graphics card and not something more arcane?
 

A:Windows only starts if video card disabled.

Its almost certainly the video card, especially considering you see it on the BIOS screen. There's a chance its the motherboard or RAM but a lot less likely then being the video card.

Is it possible to test the card in another computer, or another one in yours before purchasing one?

I decided to upgrade to a separate video card in my HP p6710f PC with ATI Radeon HD 4200 onboard graphics. The card I purchased is an MSI Radeon R7 240. I installed the card and although the fan ran there was no video output. I don't know if the card is DOA or another problem. If I disable the onboard graphics in device manager or in the bios before installing the new card and the new card is in fact DOA, how can I ever regain output from the onboard graphics again for output to the monitor? It seems to me I would be dead in the water with a black screen and no way to do anything. If anyone can help and knows the answers to this problem it would be greatly appreciated!

A:Once Onboard Graphics Are Disabled, What If New Video Card is DOA?

Also make sure the video cable is properly connected to the new card.

I have a Presario 5441 with an AMD processer and an onboard SIS 530 video card. I've tried to install an ATI Rage 128 but without much success. I've disabled the SIS from the device manager, switched over the display adapter, and changed the BIOS. But I checked in Compaq Diagnostics and it's still using memory that overlaps with the ATI. End result: the information goes through both cards and it locks all the time.
Anyone have any ideas how to fix this? I emailed Compaq and the best advice they could give me was to write an Assembler batch file. I know Perl and some C but Assembler makes my head hurt.

Since you disabled the 9200, then I suppose the monitor is plugged into the 9800. And I'll also make the assumption that you have installed the necessary drivers for the 9800. Is the 9200 an intergrated video card?? If not, why would you have two?? Anyway, have you tried plugging the monitor back into the 9200?? Do you see anything??

I have a Gateway GT5676 with an NVIDIA GeForce 9800 GTX/9800 GTX+ video card which allows for dual monitors, but has no HDMI output. My computer has an HDMI port for it's onboard video card, however when I tried to hook it up it didn't work. When I checked my Device Manager under Display Adapters only the NVIDIA card shows up. I tried going into the BIOS but nowhere could I find anything relating to a video card at all (even under Advanced Settings and Integrated Peripherals).

How do I re-enable my onboard video card so I can hook my monitor up via the HDMI cable?

And as a secondary question (to see if it is even worth the trouble): will doing so give me better picture quality on my TV? The TV is currently hooked to the NVIDIA card by way of a VGA cable with some kind of adapter on the (computer) end. I bought an HDMI cable for better image quality before realizing that the cable hooks into my onboard video card and not the one I'm currently using.

Under hardware in CCC
Primary adapter: AMD Radeon HD 6900 Series
Disabled adapter: AMD Radeon HD 7800 Series

Drivers are up to date.

I installed the 7800 as a replacement for an older (second) graphics card.
I hooked them together using a Crossfire bridge.
Still, the device remains disabled. I checked in Device Manager and it says that both units are enabled.

Also, there was a related downloads on the website called 'GVFLASH_GV-R785OC-2GD.exe'
I think it's called a BIOS Flash. I clicked start flash and then clicked on my second card without changing any settings or saving/accepting any changes. My screen went a little dysfunctional but I restarted in safe mode, disabled the second card and restarted. Then I turned the second card back on. Everything is working normally since then. Could my system have sustained any damage from this mishap?

A:Catalyst Control Center shows second video card as 'Disabled Adapter'

Nope, i wouldn't think so.

You could always stress test your system just to be sure, using tools like IntelBurnTest for your CPU, Furmark for your graphics card and Memtest86 for your RAM sticks.

CPU - Stress Test Using IntelBurnTest

http://www.ozone3d.net/benchmarks/fur/

RAM - Test with Memtest86+

EDIT:- Although Windows 7 supports the installation of 2 or more discrete graphics cards of similar or different brands, why would you want to crossfire those two (6900 and 7800 series) cards in the 1st place? CrossfireX wouldn't work with different generations of cards AFAIK.

After that i couldnt open Task Manager(neighter with right click on task bar - text faded, nor with ctrl-alt-delete) or regedit. Also i cant boot into safe mode (when it starts, suddenly blue screen appears for a milisecond and computer restarts). I cant start AVG system scan, it reports that "application cannot run due to an error while verifying its electronic certificate". I can run AVG guard though. There was problem with C disk (i couldnt open it with double click and i had to use "explore" ). I resolved it by deleting "autorun.ini" file thru command prompt (it was hidden file and, another problem that occured, i cant edit folder options to make hidden files visible). There is also problem with language bar which is disabled and cannot be re-enabled cause its button is faded, though i dont care much about it.

I manage to enter to Task manager and regedit using trick with gpedit.msc. In "User configuration/Administrative templates/System/Ctrl+Alt+Del options/Remove task manager", default value is"not configured". I put disabled and i can use Task manager OR regedit again, but ONLY once! After i open and close ONE of those, i cant re-open it withou... Read more

A:Task Manager and regedit disabled, safe mode disabled, virus scan disabled... :s

It sounds very much like a virus. If you can get on the internet google regtools.vbs that script file should get your regedit working again but don't know for how long if it is a virus.

alright, i got windowsw xp and a dvd-ROM. One day while trying to shut of the TvOUT function (so that Cyberlinks PowerDVD would work) i shut off the video adapter card by going to Display Settings, Advanced, Adapter Tab, Properties and disabling it, thinking that it might be the thing im looking for.

Now, when i boot up ,i get up to the Windows XP loading screen, but after that, pitch black. Windows still works, and i do get sounds from it, but im blindsighted.

Its so hard to tryi to enable the card using the keyboard! I searched the openboards and found the same situation for a person named Veri. SPike gave him directional keystrokes like

Hold the Start Key, and press R. This will bring you to run program. type "devmgmt.msc" and press ENTER...

blah blah blah until i got to HOld Alt + A to bring up the menu on the device, press down, and then enter. Thats where he left off. According to the cues given by my PC, i seemed to be doing it correctly, but my situation hasnt changed. During a series of trials, i get up to that last enter, and ill hear the "microsoft Question box" sound, so i know there's a dialog box which will say "Are you sure you want to disable this device?"

THe next trail, or every other time there is not question sound that comes, nor any dialog window according to my knowledge, but hey, i cant see the freakin screen.

My guess, the question box is disable, and when it doesnt do it ive enabled it. But even ... Read more

A:Disabled VIDEO ADAPTER help!!

Hello,
My first thought was to enable the on screen narrator, but that doesn't work as well as I had hoped, and I can't find a shortcut keystroke to narrator. You can run it by pressing windows + R, then type narrator.exe, then enter. I tried to get to my display adapter with it, but it didn't work very well, you have to click objects to get it to say what they are.

Another option is install a pci graphics card to get a display to enable your original card. Not sure if that would work or not.

Have you tried removing the graphics card,then reinstalling it to see if it will redetect it?

I recently purchased a Vaio (RS720G). I added my own graphics card (PCI express x16) and I would like to get another monitor going with the onboard video. I spoke with tech support and the guy thought that once you added a graphics card, the onboard was automatically disabled. This seems to be the case, but I would like to get it going again and he wasn't sure how. Any suggestions?
(running WinXP home).

Thanks,
JTN
 

A:onboard video disabled

You cannot use both onboard and a regular graphics card. It is either one or the other. You CAN however run dual monitors [if your card supports dual monitors] Most modern video cards have this option.

I was recently trying to fix a computer for my mom and extract everything that I could off the hard drive for her. All of her pics were lost because I couldn't log into her account for some reason. I did however install another copy of xp on the hard drive that her info is on. Some how I disabled some driver in the device manager and now when I try to boot the computer the fan kicks in high gear and there is no signal to the display. The second copy of windows that I installed was running properly for about a month. My question is there a way to reset the found new hardware or the drivers that I disabled without being able to see the display? The computer is a HP Media Center PC m7470n running windows xp pro sp3 with all updates as of 9/6/13. It does have an s-video hook up that I might be able to get a picture off of.

I have our computers wire networked. Last night, wife (eMachine) could not access the web. After checking several of the obvious things, I could not find anything wrong. I then went into the computer hardware and found the NIC disabled . I then clicked on enabled and no more problems. Guess I may never know what the cause was. I then updated all of the virus/trojan softwares, ran scans and nothing found; other than tracking cookies.
This is one of those for what it's worth threads should anyone have similar trouble. Yeah I was relieved and peace hit the household again.

I disabled my graphics card in windows to update it. (As the error message I recieved whilst installing the downloaded update was to switch to VGA mode), having done that I still recieved the same problem, so I went through and disabled the VGA, now when I try to log into windows, I have the problem of not being able to veiw anything on my screen. I know that the computer has not crashed as when I use the keyboard sequence (windows) button > u (shutdown computer) > u (turn off) it does actually shut down.

I was wondering how is it possible to install the graphics card again through maybe the recovery console?

Or is there any way that somebody could SO KINDLY (MAN ID LOVE YOU IF YOU CAN DO THIS FOR ME!) work out the keyboard squence for me to enable it again.

I currently have a ATI Radeon 9800, Windows XP with SP2

A:Wireless card disabled?

hey guys, i disabled my wireless card some time ago and i'm not sure how to bring it back now?Click to expand...

have a look in device manager and see if its disabled there - if so right click and re-enable
OR
was it in the bios/setup - have a look at the bios - as the PC boots should tell you how to get into bios/set - often using F2 or Del key or HP machines often use F10 key

Most laptops have a physical switch somewhere on them side/front OR they use a F key or combination of FN and F key

whats the make and exact model of laptop

Everytime I open my computer, it is always installing devices. I usually have problem in installing my sound(sometimes my computer detects it as realtek sometimes its high definition audio device) and LAN(realtek RTL8139/810x Family Fast Ethernet NIC #366).
1. Usually repairing my sound device works. (about 70%) How can I solve it permanently?

2. My computer says my LAN is not working but I can still access the internet. What seems to be the problem?

A:LAN card disabled but I can still use my internet

I suppose you should go to your computer manufacturers web-site and download and install the correct drivers. The task is not very difficult.
