Need help with a gateway 500S with pci video card and no OS
« on: February 12, 2013, 09:48:00 PM »
Anyone know how i can get a computer to show video with a pci video card with no OS on it? ive pulled the cmos battery and tried numerous resets with no luck. The on board video went bad along time ago and it was replaced with a PCI card but it wont sense a video signal. I even tried an AGP card i have, neither card works and i cant get video to install the OS. I am usually quite knowledgeable when it comes to older computers but this one has me scratching my head. When i got it, it worked just fine but i pulled the HDD to put in another computer bc i had no need for the computer at the time. The machine boots up and runs as it should, just no flippin video.
