My brother has a HP Pavilion p7-1100 Win7 and I bought him -http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814187186But everytime I plug it in I get no picture anywhere from any jack.Help Please - What am I missing???
Did you inform the bios/setup that it needs to use the external video output?
It is a video card not external unit.I was thinking that maybe I need to load the software BEFORE mounting the board.Just a thought.
Mr Belvedere meant " Not part of the Mother Board " ( external ) Some bios's will just know when you connect a separate Video Card and automatically switch over to it , some boards will not.You would need to go into your Bios and see.
I don't see a way of changing the BIOS for external video card.I assume that it should be done automatically.DanL
If the Card is seated properly and does not work there is something wrong. The Slots call for PCI Express X 16, and the Card is PCI Express 2.0 X 16. In the BIOS there should be a way to disable the OnBoard Graphics.
