No monitor in device manager
Posted on 2005-03-06
System is a Gateway 2.4 GHz, 1 GB HD, Nvidia GeForce Ti4600 card, XP with SP2. Monitor is Gateway FPD1810.
My system only works in safe mode right now. I've re-installed XP home twice, but monitor goes into standby mode after booting up. I now have no monitor folder in device manager.
The obvious solutions of trying monitor on another computer and checking to see if video card is loose are very difficult because I've had to build the CPU into a wall system and the cables don't allow any movement or access. Before dismantling my whole office, I'm wondering if there is anything I can do to determine if the problem is in the monitor or video card, or perhaps elsewhere. Or how can I get the computer to recognize that I have a monitor?
