    Default Thinkcentre M57P and PCI video card, please help!!!!

    Hi guys!

    I got an ultra-small Thinkcentre M57P (windows XP)

    Today i installed the Visiontek Radeon 9200 128M PCI (dual DVI output through cable). When i boot up the PC, i can see the startup screen. But when it is about to get to the Windows logon screen, the monitor turns off (NO SIGNAL). Then i switched to the built-in intel VGA and the monitor turns on again and works fine.

    I have tried to change video setting in BIOS but still doesnt work. Does this unit support PCI video card? Please help me out!

    Many thanks

    i think you should disable the vga onboard.
    one more way, plug the monitor to vga onboard, logon to windows, install driver. after that, right click on desktop, choose properties and find somewhere (i can't remember exactly, i did it long time ago) and try to set primary vga/monitor to hook to external vga card.

    edit: take a look on this, i think it useful http://support.microsoft.com/kb/238886
