No display

  1. Hi,

    I have a Hi-Grage Experian 1700 PC - it's an integrated design so the screen is part of the sysyem casing (like the new Sony's). Recently, the display stopped working; the PC seems to boot ok (and the AV functions work) so I think its a graphic card or screen issue. The PC has an integrated API graphics chip but there is a spare PCI slot I could use to install a new graphics card. The problem is how can I change the BIOS to use the new PCI graphics card when I can't see the screen!! Any ideas would be appreciated.

    On separate components, our experience is that the separate Experian monitor has a very high failure rate, so I expect that integrated one does also. But they are very helpful in getting parts.
    You may need to decide whether you want a real computer or whether you can afford to replace the monitor in that one.
