How come I don’t see an improvement after installing a new video card?

by on March 25, 2010

Q: I have a gateway dx4831- 01e and I installed a new video card. The computer reads it fine and the drivers but the display is not working. It is just the computer regular settings not the cards.

    I’m sorry, but I don’t understand your question. What exactly is the problem, and what improvement are you expecting exactly that you aren’t seeing?

      THE CARD IS INSTALLED FINE WITH THE DRIVERS
      BUT THE DISPLAY IS OF THE INTERGRATED GRAPHICS CARD AND I DISABLED THAT

    Windows isn’t going to look any flashier with your new video card. The only reason to upgrade from the onboad video card would have been to do gaming on the pc. If that isn’t your intention I’d suggest returning or selling the card.

    Yeah I am not sure I follow either. If you installed a new video card then you must have connected your monitor to the new video card. If your monitor is correctly displaying an image then it is working. If it is not then you would just need to connect your monitor to the other video card and go into the bios to disable the on board video I would think.

    If your video is correctly working from your new video card then it would just be working. Unless you want to change your monitor resolution then you wont notice any changes.
