    Enabling graphic card without monitor


    Dell XPS 8900. I disabled the integrated graphic card with device manager. Now the screen is blank when i restart and F2 and F12 doesn’t keep the spinning dots from freezing up. The F2 menu doesn’t appear anymore as it use to. The F12 menu still appears but hitting the menu options takes me nowhere.


    I’m guessing the solution is to get to device manager again to enable the integrated graphic card. How do you do this? I’ve already tried removing the round battery & even removing the Nvidia graphic card then re-installing. I thought disabling the integrated graphic would make windows use the Nvidia. Apparently not so. Anybody?

    :)

    usb monitors using graphics card

    Hi isaac177,

    Thank you for writing to Microsoft Community Forums.

    1. May I know the model number of AOC display monitor?
    2. Is this the first time that you are trying to setup the display using HDMI?

    You can try to use an adaptor (USB/HDMI or VGA as the card has 3 slots) to connect to monitor. I would also suggest you to get in touch with Nvidia to know more about this as there can be output issues while using adaptors and your Graphic card (GTX
    1660 Ti) might not work as expected.

    I suggest you to refer this
    NVidia
    support link, and check if that helps.


    Regards,

    graphics card problems

    Hi,

    Your computer makes a noise or beeps from your internal speaker because it failed to detect the graphics card. What we can suggest is for you to try cleaning your graphics card with a pencil eraser. Here are the steps below:

    • Turn your computer off.
    • Pull out your video/graphics card.
    • Rubbed the cold contacts with soft pencil eraser.
    • Connect your video/graphics card back to the computer.
    Kindly note that this is just a temporary fix. If the case still continues, I suggest that you contact your graphics card's manufacturer.

    Let us know how it goes.

    Graphics card information.

    Hi David,

    Thank you for posting your query in Microsoft Community. Appreciate your interest in using Windows 10.

    The error might occur if the Graphic card is cannot update the driver automatically.

    I suggest you to update the graphic card manually by following the steps below:

    • Press Windows key + X and click on
      Device manager.
    • Expand Display Driver from the list.
    • Right click on the Graphic driver and select
      update driver software.

    Also, can download the latest version of the graphic card from the manufacturer website.

    Hope the information is helpful. Please revert back with the necessary information and we’ll be glad to assist you.
