I am scratching my head and thinking that other than grabbing a new motherboard I am going to struggle. My problem is that I bought a HP G5225UK Desktop with an integrated VGA graphics adaptor running Windows 8. The board doesn't have any other inputs for video. So it was working but I did realise the VGA socket could be temperamental. I just ordered a dedicated card Nvidia GT 430 but guess what? Yep this morning about to upgrade and boot to the new card I see no signal. Being Win 8 I am stuck (and unfamiliar with the bios access) I have tried 3 different VGA cables, 2 different monitors, had the back off and looked for obvious signs of damage or strain but nada. Other than returning the Desktop to the seller (might be difficult anyway) or replacing the motherboard (don't really want the expense) can anyone on this forum suggest a way to change the bios without seeing what your doing? Or a work around please?
