yeah it's a vid card but I don't know how u r trying to hook it ut to your laptop. All you do is put in in a pci slot(i think it is pci), plug in the cable and start windows then do all the driver install stuff

Hope that helps

With the system off, install the card.
Boot machine up. Install drivers.
Should work.
If you still don't have anything, you probably have a bad vid card.
just go exchange it.

"New" doesn't mean it works. It's suppose to...

Good Luck.
