http://ubuntuforums.org – Okay, I'm not sure what type of motherboard I have. All I can tell is that I'm using an onboard video card. I just obtained an old NVidia GeForce 6200 and I want to get it working. If possible, I would like to set it up for a second monitor. Either way, I can't get the thing to work. I put the card in, plug in the cord, turn on the PC, and all I get is the "No Signal" message. The machine starts up just fine. I just can't see anything. The card seems to be a plug 'n play, as I didn't need to perform any installations when it was put into another computer. Looks like I would just need to go into the BIOS and disable the onboard card, but the only relevant option that I can see from the BIOS is: PCI / Plug and Play Setup >> Primary Graphics Adapter The two options are "PCI" and "Onboard AGP" It's already set to PCI and nothing changes when I choose Onboard AGP, so I don't see what the problem is. Any ideas? (Hardware)
