Installing a new Geforce 4 mx420 into a new computer 1.4ghz, windows XP, I found in the motherboard manual (ecs l7vmm) where it says, Init Display first-- Use this in the BIOS to specify if you graphics card is onboard or in a PCI slot, Tried it But I still have the same problem, start it up and it gets to the windows XP logo and green LEDS and then goes Black, but i can hear that windows is up and running in there I just cannot see it, in safe mode I go in and find strangely I Do not have a Monitor listed in the device manager when using the new card??????????, Put it back to the old onboard video card and there it is working fine, My driver for New card is working fine no conflicts But I found a Conflicting device under Control pannel-Display-setting-Adv-adapter-properties-recources, it says:
Input range 03B0-03BB used by Via tech CPU to VGA controller03c0-03DF
Moemory range 000A000-000BFFFF used by Via tech CPU to AGP controller
Got any ideas?????????

try going into safe mode and changing the resource used so as to not conflict with the other device, write down the ones that show in normal mode as reference. either that, or you may be able to tweak the bios settings, have to play with it that way. the video card is asking for a particular resource, or it won't work right when the drivers are loaded.

Thanks for the reply, I have this on some other boards a dn no one has brought this one up, i have 15 hours into this problem, i have been checking the BIOS for a disable for the onboard video as that swhat most people think the problem is but this sound like it could be a the answer, problem is i am not sure what you mean or how to do it???
Could you please try to be more specific on where to change the resources???
Where to find the correct settings for them???
Would I do this with the original video working or in safe mode with the new card, or in the Bios??
I really appreciate you reply.

you would do it in safe mode. go to device manager and pick the device, to change it there on the resources tab. memory address or / and irq settings. you'd need to get to normal mode and note the settings first, then back to safe mode to see what's there. um, look for other duplicate devices and delete them while you're there, they could be letting windows misdetect. if that's the case, you delete all the devices that are duplicated, even the original, then reboot and let windows redetect and install drivers. also, you may have the wrong driver for the video card if the monitor is not even detected. they go hand in hand, especially on windows 2000.
