How come our graphics card does not work anymore after downloading an updated driver?

by on April 23, 2013

Q: Son downloaded an upgrade for his Pci express graphics card – computer now bleeps that there is no graphics. I have tried a cheap Pci card in one of the pci slots but although no bleeps – still nothing on monitor. – How thick am I being?

    Does the computer show anything on the screen at all when you power it on, or it just beeps? Is there an onboard graphics card that you can resort to for now? It seems as though it is more than just the graphics driver. Was anything changed within the bios?

    Part of the upgrade was a flash to the bios of the graphics card. This stopped it working and computer bleeps and nothing on monitor.

    Removing exress card and putting in a simple pci (non express) card in a vacant pci slot – now no beeps but nothing on the screen except the monitors message “no signal”
