Unhappy Video In Motherboard

Hi......im trying to get this computer and motherboard working, but the computer turns on and the motherboard turns on but the moniter does not work. It is not the moniter because i use this moniter for my other com and i am just testing for this one. Does anyone know what the problem is?

Are you using Integrated Graphics? Or does your motherboard have Intergrated?

you have to disable integrated video from the BIOS. Doing it in device manager wont do anything.

Did you connect the monitor to the pci card connection ?
This will disable internal as theres nothing for it to do.
Then install the drivers.

Hmm, you do have an issue there. If i'd done it blindfolded, I would tell you exactly how many arrow keys to press (though all bios's are different) and I might break your computer entirely...

The only thing I could suggest is taking out the PCI port one and make sure that the VGA cable is being plugged into the right socket for the onboard (though i'm sure your doing that). This prooves a problem...

The only thing I could suggest and I'm not trying to be mean after you've built it is to unbuild everythnig and get that motherboard sent back as quickly as possible to be replaced. This would surely fix your issue in the short run and get you up and started quickly. It does seem by chance you have got a bad onboard video card though which has caused some issues.

If though you can get hold of a AGP graphics card for the time being, this might infact over do the onboard one in inportance as this is used mostly for high powered graphics cards.
PCI wouldn't be seen over the onboard graphics since the PCI ports can hold anything non-graphic related also.

so if a mate has one, plug it up (i hope you have an AGP slot. I'm sure you do) and hopefully the monitor would now work after putting the cable at the back of this one instead.

If this doesn't work, or you can't get hold of one, (and really, its faulty and so you should. but the above soloution will be a quick fix) replace it

I hope this helps

aw so I guess it doesn't have an AGP port?

and if you mentioned that before we'd of been able to say straight away "Get a new board" hehe. Its a shame that though, though it is old...

I hope it gets sorted soon

I didn't really help then

Glad its working though now
Can't understand why a loose bios chip would have caused the video not to work, unless the whole computer wasnt really booting to send a signal to the video card in the first place This was probably the case

Kewl. Yeah it might have happend, but if the bios wasn't working properly, it probably wouldn't have gone past POST (Power On Self Test) so wouldn't have actually gone to windows I wouldn't of thought.... otherwise the whole idea of pushing the bios chip in makes no sense

Yep, I hope its all working good when you get it back!

As for the video card, to play up to date games, I would normally consider getting a Geforce 6600GT as its a cheapish card, and will play up to date games at really good quality settings and resolutions, but this is no good if you don't have a AGP slot...

I can't really think of any cards that are PCI and still reletivly new and so up to scratch. Anyone know of any? (If you have AGP, go for the 6600GT)

Thats basically it really, since you have the rest of it. You just need a good enough video card now
At least if you can support AGP on your motherboard, when you get new parts (motherboard and CPU, and probably RAM too) you can just add this card to the new setup. If you get a PCI one and you want to update, you'll probably end up throwing the PCI one away to get an AGP or PCI-E card, so thats the only problem. I'm sure there are some good ones available though.

I hope this helps
