ML10v2 replace video card

I want to replace the video card with HDMI for a better screen picture and video. I don't play games on it but use it for browsing, running my plex, crashplan, and blueiris PoE camera server.

I got a cheap x16 PCIE 2.0 video card but can't get it to boot.

When I plug in the video card, it appears to pick it up as the internal onboard graphics no longer works. But there is no picture using the VGA, HDMI, or DVI ports back to my monitor.

 The slot it goes into is x8 but i read that's OK.

 Do I need to update the firmware or something to get it to pick up?

 The thing also takes like 10-15 minutes to boot up so it's a pain to troubleshoot! 


Thanks very much in advance


Re: ML10v2 replace video card


Please go through the ML10v2 QuickSpecs, this server has 4 expansion slots, 2x1 and 2x8, also check the video card specifications and see if this card is supported on this server.

What is the video card model/description?

Thank You!

Thanks. I did check the specs. It's an x16 card which I was told works ok in an x8 slot
