ok.
I just got an ATI RADEON 9250 128 MB VIDEO CARD (PCI) for my [bleep] and crappy computer. :whistling:
BUt this is the thing
The manual told me to physically install it and then install the software.
So install it
then in the bios i change the video card from integrated to PCI for some strange stupid reason.
I restart It
and i see nothing
I was supposed to install the software
i didnt :blink:
I need help fast!!!

hi,

The BIOS or the Basic Input Output System of a computer is the first thing your computer look for when powered up. This is a basically a set of instructions and data which tell the computer how to start or boot. These instruction reside on a CMOS chip on the mainboard. This CMOS chip is powered by a small butten-cell in the vicinity. Whatever changes you make to the BIOS (or in the CMOS setup) are saved to this chip.

So now you have two options to reset your BIOS:

1. You can take out the battery and then re-install it.........or

2. If you can get into the BIOS, there should be an option to "Load Defaults". Choose that and then "Save and Exit".

Did you unplug your computer as well?
If that doesn't work then your going to have to hunt down the jumper on your motherboard that will.

Er...just to confirm: You physically installed the card, then changed the BIOS from Integrated to PCI, and then got nothing on the screen?

Is your monitor connected to the new card, or to the onboard video port?
