Hi my graphics card doesnt display anything when i start my pc. How ever my onboard graphics does display, i feel like it may be a problem with the card but it seems to working fine the fans are running so that means power is getting to it. I dont understand why i dont get a display from it when i try to use my dedicated graphics card. Thanks help appreciated
It does look like you are going to have to go into BIOS set up and change the settings for the primary graphics. A setting like 'Use PCIe graphics if present' (assuming it is a modern system and your graphics card is a PCIe based card) would be my first choice because it offers the option of removing the graphics card and still accessing through the onboard graphics if the card ever has other issues in the future. Enabling PCIe for primary graphics and disabling onboard graphics is the other real option but at some point you may end up resetting BIOS to access graphics and BIOS set up if you find yourself needing to use the system with a dead graphics card and no temporary replacement.
You have to be a little bit crazy to keep you from going insane.
