Blank Screen After Graphics Card Upgrade

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

I recently upgraded the graphics card in a Dell Prebuilt. The new graphics card outputs nothing, but the fans spin and is recognized by the task manager. I tried changing setting in the BIOS to chose the graphics card over the onboard, but it doesn’t work.

You need to plug the monitor cable into the outputs of the graphics card.

You could pass the graphics card's signal through the motherboard outputs, but why?

Plug it into HDMI1 on the display, if it doesn't post restart the computer.
