Question about PC Chips (M925G) Motherboard

ECS M925 MoBo onboard graphics

I'm facing troubles with the onboard graphics, (I think)it starts a while later after putting on the computer. On the monitor it stars flashing like receiving electric jumps and right way monitor goes black showing "No signal". The question is: Is it a problem with only the onboard graphics chip or the problem goes to the very motherboard. Can I put a AGP graphic card and solve the situation?
Any help will be appreciated.

    Pattods, my friend
    You were right, it is an overheating problem. I opened the comp case and due to the room temperature (AC unit) the electric jumps on the monitor decreased but still showing up the black screen. I'll try to put a PCI graph card to see if the problem goes off. Thanks a lot anyway.

Well it all depends on if the onboard is fried. Usually, that's a sign of overheating. I'd toss in a case fan. Maybe try running the system with the side of the case off of it. If it still does this try putting a fan beside it to give it a massive rush of airflow. If it stables out, then it's a heat issue.

You can put an AGP card into that motherboard, which is always beneficial to the performance since the processor and RAM isn't being used by the video. However, you'll need to disable the onboard video system in the BIOS before you can really use an AGP card to it's ability.

I hope this helps bud.

I was given a tower, it wont boot up it says monitor in power saving mode, the agp brown slot is empty, do i need a graphics card or is it onboard in a K7SEM motherboard


Hi, you can download drivers and a manual here:

http://www.ecs.com.tw/ECSWebSite/Product/Product_Detail.aspx?DetailID=342&CategoryID=1&MenuID=24&LanID=0

It has onboard vga and that the only graphic is has.
You can put a graphic card in the agp slot for better resolution.

I think the harddrive is dead since it will not boot.

Hi Jenkins21448,

I believe your mean PCChips M925. ECS didn't make a M925 board.
So you can find the PCChips bios and drivers HERE. If you download the manual there is a drawing of the motherboard for you to compare, to make sure you have the right drivers. But, you may be right that that board you have is extremely rare. I've never seen or heard of ECS making a M925. Check out the picture to be sure.

Thanks

Check the following:
The fsb are the same, if this differs it could couse instability.
( do not use 266 ram with 333 ram and 333 with 400 , or any other mixture of thease).
try this: pull out the rams and put back the first to the second's socket and the second to the first's socket.

Good luck.

Mother board not seeing my pcix card


Hi crazieedd, the answer to you're problem is this. Go to ECS's web site. Click on this link for you're GeForce6100SM board.
http://www.ecsusa.com/ECSWebSite/Products/ProductsDetail.aspx?detailid=685&DetailName=Bios&MenuID=7&LanID=9
Another user I tried to help did have the same problem as you. Though ECS does not mention there is a fix for this issue. ECS did email the user to update the bios file. (I looked at the last 2 bios updates & there is no mention of how to run the PCI-E & disabling the onboard video fix mentioned. According to ECS you are to upgrade the bios file to its most recent. That said, once the bios file has been flashed. (Preferred option is to use a floppy disk). You are to go into the bios to Advanced Chipset Features
Than to, Onboard GPU set this to read, [Enable If no Ext GPU]
Save & exit the bios.
Having this set to, Enable If No Ext GPU & using a PCI-E card plugged in to the system automatically disables the onboard video card. (Don't you just love it when the Mfg does not list this type of major fix)?
Please keep in mind the other user was not running Vista. No one has mentioned to you how bad Vista (any version) is! You may not have any troubles with Vista. Let's hope it stays that way.

Good Luck crazieedd!
