Hello, I have a video card that I think crapped out. For a while it would freeze my computer whenever I streamed video, but it would work for regular internet browsing or local stuff on the computer. Finally, I got the beeping at startup with the orange light. I removed the video card and cleaned it up with dust off. When I reinstalled it, the computer started right up and worked fine. After a couple days I am back to square 1. I removed the video card and tried using the onboard video card, which I thought would auto sense my new connection and enable the card, but it doesn't. I tried unplugging the computer and removing the battery from the mobo for a few minutes and that didn't work. I tried to clean the malfunctioning card again, but it seems to be totally dead. Aside from what I've already tried, what other steps can I take to get my onboard video card working again? I am fairly certain that this is the only problem, but it's impossible to mess with settings in my computer without seeing anything. Any help is greatly appreciated.

Sounds like your card overheated and died.

Yeah, I am pretty confident that the card is dead, but I was hoping to use the onboard video now. I removed the video card, but the onboard video is not working when connected with DVI or HDMI. I am wondering how I can enable this card without a display.

Go into your BIOS and make sure onboard graphics is enabled.

How can I get into the bios and make changes with no display?

Reset the BIOS by removing the 2032 CMOS battery for 5 - 10 minutes.

Resetting your Bios should most likely do it. One thing id try is once you reset the bios by removing the CMOS battery, try the card once again just for good measure. I believe it is fried but sometimes cards can act up for no reason! :)
