Im trying to help my aunt build a super-dinosaur of a computer and all has went okay until now. We get no signal sent to the monitor from built in monitor output. We are using an acer g43t-am v2.0 motherboard, with a dell cn-oku311 flat screen monitor. I tried also connecting nvidia 180-p0019 vga card, hoping for plug and play, but had no success. Also, it seems that the video card (as well as another generic I tried) is fitting SUPER tight, as it seems I have to force it against the frame of the back of the housing and push it hard (seems almost too long) about 1/8 of an inch, until it finaly lines up, to press in. And THEN, it doesnt seem to press in all the way either. HELP! This stuff is a bit "dated" for my knowledge... does this card even really fit? Am I a bonehead, fitting the rectangle block into the square hole, by brute force? Lol! ...or, does anyone have any other suggestions that may help... I mean, other that the obvious, telling my aunt that its not 1997 anymore... LOL! thanks in advance.

:welcome:   Sik7,

 

The video card is not compatible with the motherboard as the card is the older AGP type and the motherboard PCI-e, you may have damaged the MBs video card slot by forcing the AGP card in it.

 

acer g43t-am v2.0 motherboard

 

nvidia 180-p0019 vga card, 

 

 

NB: Just so that you are aware, your thread was moved here as it is is the appropriate forum for resolving hardware issues while the Waiting Room is a special forum where you should only post if you have waited 3 days or more for a reply to your OP.
