post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
As title says.. im looking for either a OS or program for windows that allows it to run with out a video card..

long story.. my older PC video card is on half of its last leg and i cant overclock it with out the video card crashing the system..

so I need to get rid of the video card.

looking for a program that either emulates a video card for use with VNC.. or a OS that is like a... DOS... install...

I use linux to do this

I turn on my Linux server, wait 4 minutes, then go on my WinXP machine and access the server through terminal services or SSH, etc....

That's a good question to which I do not know the answer...
post #10 of 10
I worked for a phone company in NYS for a good while, and in our datacenter, we had blade servers that all had onboard video. They were "headless", so none had a monitor running, but they were all hooked up 8 at a time to KVM switches, then to a single display, Keyboard and mouse, used only if they were making adjustments, or restarting one of the servers for updates, etc...

So in short - in a server farm, the server boards would have an onboard graphics chip, and would most likely be wired to a display via KVM.

at least this is my understanding, never been to a real farm, lol.

someone feel free to correct me if I am wrong.
