Like the other two suggestions, this would be much simpler if both parties were more cooperative and less mercurial. All of these suggestions are possible. It’s just a matter of time until the parties involved work it out.
It’s not as simple as replacing the video card, but it still is a relatively straightforward process.
It’s not as simple as replacing the video card, but it still is a relatively straightforward process. You can use a screwdriver to remove the old card and another screwdriver to install your new one.
Many other places have instructions for removing and installing the old video card and installing the new one.
If you have questions about installing the new video card, you’re not alone! We’ve some general guidelines and tips to help you get started.
These instructions assume that you’re using Linux. If you’re on Windows or Mac, you should find your instructions.

This post shows how to replace a burned video card in your Rasp Pi. The video card is a default “Generic PnP Sound Card” with the Rasp Pi. These instructions are for an older model Pi, not the newer Raspberry Pi 2 or 3. There are also instructions for both Windows and Linux below.
This is the first of 4 posts that will deal with using Linux to manage your Raspberry Pi’s hardware configuration. The other three posts will focus on configuring your network interface, installing software, and setting up an SSH server (to make it more secure). We’ll explore these topics in depth in the next few weeks, so look out for them!
In any case, here’s what you do: Replace the burnt video card from your Rasp Pi (it doesn’t matter whether it’s a P1/A+ or A+/B+/2 B+/3 or anything else) with another one that has HDMI output – either via composite input or via HDMI output (even though there are no controls on the new one). This can actually be done very quickly by simply unplugging all cables connected to your old burnt-out video card and then plugging everything into your new one – but that would make for a very long post and not worth doing as you’d only need to do it once unless you have multiple cards !!! To get around this issue, I decided to write down my steps while I was doing it: – Remove all cables from your old video card – Unscrew the screw behind the dashboard covering the Vid Card slot – Unscrew the screw holding the lid on the back of vid card slot (sometimes just tapping with screwdriver will get it loose enough) – Remove screws holding the rear cover of vid card slot off (these are further down)
