    Microsoft Basic Display Adapter problem.

    Hi. I recently purchased Intel(R) Xeon(R) E3-1240 V2 with Graphics card ( Hynix ). CPU Slots are working fine and hynix is correctly inserted in the cpu. Humbly, the problem is that window shows my display adapter as Microsoft Basic Display Adapter with 0mb Vram. Is it my fault or system is simply not detecting it!? Also under device manager display adapter tab, there is only microsoft basic dislpay adapter. I tried to hover internet but could not find relevant information. Please oblige me....

    OK, your post is very hard to understand. The xeon E3-1240 does not have onchip video. What exact video card did you install?
    Next you see the basic MS display adapter because no driver is installed for your video card. So post ALL of your exact system specs ie exact motherboard, exact video card, exact pw supply, etc, etc. Do not post 500W pw supply. Post the exact brand and model# Do that for ALL of your parts.

    You probably need to install the graphics card driver.
    The MS one is a placeholder so you can still see what’s on the screen when no driver is installed.
