No video on 510A

I have a Thinkcentre 510A.  Currently I get no display at all.  The monitor works on another computer but I get nothing out of the HDMI or SVGA out of this one.  If I unplug a monitor, I get a loss of signal message on the monitor.  The case and CPU fans are running and I can hear the hard drive spinning up.  I'm assuming the onboard GPU is bad and the motherboard will need to be replaced.

Re: No video on 510A

Or you could just install a dedicated GPU in the PCIe x16 slot.         

 

You don't specify the exact model you have, but do you know the wattage of the power supply in your system?     

 

It looks like some models came with a 180W and others with a 210W, and the ones with the 210W shipped with a NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1050 Ti, 4GB GDDR5 or AMD Radeon RX 560, 4GB GDDR5 GPUs, so those are both options if you have the larger PSU.

 

 

Cheers,

A GT 1030 DDR5 would work with the 180w supply (and 210w for less cost that a 1050.)

Re: No video on 510A

My PSU is 180W.  I have found a new motherboard for $150.  I'm not having much luck finding a video card that either doesn't require a larger PSU or that is inexpensive enough make the GPU option more viable than a new motherboard.  The other thing I have to consider is that it might not be the onboard video that is the problem but the motherboard itself.  Without any video, it's kinda hard to tell.
