    factory reset problem


    Sorry for any errors. Typing on my phone.

    So I installed a graphics card a few months ago. Today i decided to factory restore my computer. I've plugged in my old integrated card but it's not displaying. I did upgrade to windows 10. So i don't know if that might have something to do with it or if the computer is still driving get drivers working. Hope this makes sense. Thanks for any help.

    Windows 8.1


    Hey Mate,

    In my experience, if you put a card in the PCIe slot, it will usually be the default after that. Try plugging the monitor cable into the new card you installed, it should run just off the stock VGA driver in windows. Otherwise, on some MB's you can go into the BIOS and select the default port. If that fails, remove the new Graphics card, perform the factory reset again, and then install it after putting on windows 10 again.

    Hope that helps.
