I have a friend's Gateway Model#GT4015E computer. It has onboard video but it now does not have any display at all! I have tried it on one of my regular CRT's and it reads "out of scan range." On my LCD it shows "no signal". The computer appears to be passing POST and there appears to be cpu and hard drive activity based on the HD LED activity light and the computer sounds as if it is booting up fine...there is just no display...ever!! I have tried installing a known good pci-e video card but the monitor acts as if there is no display at all....like there is no signal. I think this may be because the motherboard isn't configured to send video to the secondary video card but I do not know how to disable the onboard video as I do not see any jumpers that indicate this function. I have tried pressing f8 to see if it would bring up the safe mode prompt but again...nothing! I know a decent bit about computers but this one has me stumped...please help anyone!!! By the way the MB is a C51GU01.
Try starting the computer and press F5 repeatedly until you get a menu up. Select Safe Mode. When Safe Mode has loaded, a message will pop up warning you not to go into dos/command line mode, click ok. When the windows desktop appears, right click on a blank of the desktop. Left click on Properties. Click on the Settings Tab at the top right. set your Screen Resolution to 1024 X 768. Click OK. Restart your computer - this fixes the problem 99% of the time. You or a program has change this to a setting higher than the CRT or LCD can handle.
Some systems you have to go into the bios settings and disable the onboard video card manually.
