New video card trouble
Ok so i bought a new msi nvidia geforce 9400 gt for my gateway desktop. when i put it in, my computer did not recognize the card for some reason. the light on my monitor is even orange which means its not getting a signal (although i am currently using an aftermarket ati graphics card).
So i thought i'd try installing software before hardware and when i did i got an error saying that no proper device was found.
SO NOW. im thinking that i would try going back to the onboard vga so i can put the geforce in and everything would work as it should as i could install the software for the card.
But when i went to use the onboard vga, it had the same problem as the geforce and was not working at all. First i tried reseting the bios incase i disabled it somehow and that didn't work at all. So i tried to install the video driver found on the dell website and i got an error message saying ,
"This system does not meet the minimum requirements for installing the software."
Gateway tech support sucks and keeps telling me to ask "Answers by Gateway" which is a branch of the company that acts as tech support for a fairly heafty fee.
So now im like WTF IS GOING ON, THIS SUCKS ALL I WANNA DO IS PLAY SOME CALL OF DUTY!
How do i get my new video card to work????
