I have an HP Slimline, the screen stopped working (no signal), I have installed a Radeon PCI - E video card. My screen still does not recieve video. I can't see any thing to delete existing drivers or to change my new card to default. I have Window 7 installed on my computer. Is there a way I can "blindly" fix the BIOS?

hi motherdork, What is the model of your HP? Can you get another video card to try. The other thing might be to reset your BIOS. You might need to go to HP website and download the information on your motherboard. There is a small battery on the mobo that you can remove for approx 1 minute or if you have the mobo layout there is a jumper you can remove to reset your BIOS to factory default. If you go this route you need to remove any video card you have installed.
