Yesterday when I came home my wifes pc monitor was blank and in sleep mode (no one had been home all day so no one changed anything). No matter what i moved or swapped out, it wouldnt come out of sleep. I moved the cable from the added nvidia 6200 graphics port to the onboard port & I got a picture but it is on the lowest setting possible and I cannot change them. I went to nvidia's website to make sure I had the curent drivers for that card & it ran a diagnostic & it does. Is there anyway to switch back to the onboard graphics card or to get the nvidia one to work? She doesnt need the nvidia card as all she uses the computer for is emails & facebook. Help please!!

Simply remove the card...and the onboard should take over.

System manufacturer and model?

I'm just curious...if the system had onboard video...why even bother installing a physical card?

Its a Dell demension 2340 (?) & it used to be used for some gaming that the onboard couldnt handle (crashes & screan tearing). Tried the removal of the card but no such luck...

Well...what does that mean?

You cannot remove the card...you can remove it, but no video...exactly what happens?

The onboard may have to be enabled in the BIOS. Did you reinstall the video drivers for the onboard?
