Hello all,

My brother suggested I try to find the answer to my problem on here so here I am. I have an nvidia geforce 6150se nforce 430 graphics card in my computer. I downloaded and updated the drivers for this. Right now I am using the onboard video. when I hook up the other video card the monitor says no input signal. could this be a computer monitor cord problem or what? you know the cord that hooks from the monitor to the video card? and if that is not the issue what else could it be?

Thank you
Dorothy

if you are hooking the same cable to both video sources and one works and the other doesn't its not likely a vga cable problem.
if it worked before the driver update,then i suspect a driver problem ,with it running on the onboard video ,go to control panel add and remove programs nd uninstall the nvidea drivers

No the nvidia cable is the wider sized cable. The on-board takes the smaller sized cable. When I unhook the on-board and hook up the nvidia card the monitor states no input signal.

What is the make of this computer?

Most monitors use a VGA connecter, what are the two different types of connecters for the onboard graphic and the nvidia card?

ok,so its using a dvi cable ,i assume your monitor has both connections ,correct .[ my Viewsonic monitor has both dvi and avg, im using avg now but have used dvi with it ,no problem ] did the dvi cable come ith the monitor or the video card ,there ae different types of dvi i will assume you have the correct one .
did you try booting into safe mode[hitting f8 on bootup] with the dvi connected,
make sure you are using the correct cabletype .

ok I know what the problem is thanks to the website you listed. I have a dvi-A hooked up where a dvi-D should be. the dvi-d that came with it had a split it so I hooked this other one I had laying around. I will have to go purchase a new dvi-D cable. Thanks for the information. If after I purchase a new cable it still does not work I will reply again. Thanks for the help.
