I think I need a video or graphics Card for an old Compaq Presario E85-00970, S6010V.


The monitor keeps saying its going to sleep. I have tried several different monitors and cords. I have reset all the sleep/hibernation settings. It has to be the computer. Immediantly after booting up we get the message that its going to sleep.


I stole the power supply out of an old HP and eplaced it. Still get the sames results. If I new what the graphics card or video card looked like I would steal it from the old HP too.



How do I find out for sure if a Video or Graphics Card will work?

Where can I buy a replacement Video or Graphics Card?



Any and all help appreciated.

Laura

Hi Laura and welcome to the forums. First, that is not a Graphics card issue. I have never heard of a computer set to go into Hybernation ( sleep ) at start up. Usually it is set for the Monitor to go into hibernation after a certain amount of Idle time ( mine is 10 mins. ) You might try removing the CMOS battery on the Motherboard after you have shut down for a couple of minutes then replace it. If it is a BiOS problem, that should reset it.

Thanks Coastie,
What is wierd ...... really weird...... is that sometimes the monitor goes off in 1 minute and sometimes the computer will run for several hours before we loose the monitor (that has to be a clue)

1) Will removing the CMOS Battery cause this workstation to loose any data or cause it to loose its network mapping?

PCI vs On board
After reading your post i did F1 and go to bios and changed the video card from PCI to onboard. (I have no idea what this means) I reset the computer a couple of time and it appears to reboot just fine,
So far I have not lost the monitor (but I only made th change 3 minutes)

I will keep you updated.

Thanks,
Laura

Hi Laura, First, reoving the CMOS battery and resetting the BiOS wil not cause you to lose any data. The Clock and calendar will need to be reset though. If you are using the onboard Graphics Chipset, then it should have been set to that. If you using a dedicated card, then when you install the card, you need to go into the Device Manager and disbable the Onboard graphics. With PCIe graphics, a later thing than PCI, it will generally disable the onboard stuff when you plug the card in.
