Question about MSI RS482M4-ILD Motherboard

Random black screens, during bios config, boot, windows.

My gf computer has been causing problems recently. For about 2 weeks, at what appears to be random times, the computer will just halt, stop working, I don't know what to call it. The screen goes black, but the monitor doesn't say, 'check connection'. The computer is still running, keyboard lights are on, and its making sounds, but no response from anything. I thought it could be software related (virus, malware), but this happens while running dos utilites, bios config. It's looking like some hardware problem, but I can't track it down. I've ran memtest-86, it doesn't finish, but it doesn't reset at the same point each time. I've removed 1 of the sticks of ram, then swaped for the other, still no difference. The computer has integrated ATI X200 express video, amd k8 athlon 64 proc, 1G ram, XP sp2 with newest ati drivers. I'm ran out of tests, can someone please help? ~Jerry

Re: Random black screens, during bios config, boot,...

It is a very good chance that it is a video card issue as you said that you can still hear the sound, i mean the sound of windows starting if that is the case then need to get a video card and installif the motheboard doesn't have a AGP slot then get a pci video card, try that

How do you fix a corrupted bios?

I don't think it's corrupt bios, maybe a virus or malware.
But if you can go to the computers maker website and download bios and install them the way they tell you to install them.

First Return BIOS settings to their default levels. An overclocked or misconfigured BIOS can cause all sorts of random issues, including black screen
second restart your computer and then press and hold F8 keys until you get Advanced Options menu screen.Use the arrow key to highlight Safe Mode, and then press Enter, your computer will boot automatically to safe mode.
IF you able to start in the safe mode then update your graphic drivers from the manufacturer site

My notebook from one moment to another black screen appears a lock in the corner and I asked for a password, I can do? hopefully can help me. thank you very much from chile.

During the boot process you will see on the screen to press a certain key to enter setup
Press and hold that key during the boot up process to enter BIOS you can load failsafe defaults or load optimized defaults ,press escape then press f10 to save to cmos to restart
During the boot process tap the f8 button three times this will boot into safe mode where the only things working will be your mouse and keyboard enabling you to attempt to repair your computer

now for the password

If you are talking about problem with your password

You need to prepare:
1:A blank CD/DVD or USB flash drive
2.A computer which can link to internet
3.A program called Windows Password Recovery 6.0
Get started with this 3 simple steps:
Step 1 - Download windows password recovery utility and install it.
Step 2 -Burn your Windows Password Reset CD:
To burn your CD, you'll need a blank CD-R and the .ISO file of Windows Password Reset.
Step 3 - Put in your newly created CD and remove your Windows password.
hope this helps

UBCD4Win is a bootable CD which contains software that allows you to repair, restore, or diagnose almost any computer problem also has a bios reset tool which can remove your password and bios password
you will have to burn it to a disk as an ISO then you will have to boot from the disc During the boot process you will see on the screen to press a certain key to enter setup Press and hold that key during the boot up process to enter BIOS the scroll down to advanced bios features press enter change your first boot device to cd press escape then press f10 to save to cmos to restart (note after you have removed your password you will have change first boot back to your hard drive) Hope this helps

I got this computer off side of road and can't get windows to load it's try's then the screen goes black . here is what happens . I turn it on the screen comes up black it asks what I would like to do ?...

The first screen (start windows normally etc) appears because the computer ahs not shut down normally before. Since you choose to start windows (normally or last known...) and the Windows logo comes up with the loading bar, this means that the computer is starting to boot. Some hardware or software (windows) problem appears and the boot never ends. Possible reasons: motherboard failure or hard disk failure. A good idea is to re-install windows to check the results. Mention that in case of reinstalling the windows, during the procedure choose to reformat the hard disk so it will be checked for errors and reported.

In case of a problem or clarification, don't hesitate to post me a reply before rejecting my answer.
If you are satisfied, rate my solution with the "thumbs" or (even better) add a testimonial.

Thanks and regards

Unexpectedly lost graphics, but theres a story to the issue.

You mentioned that you disabled the on-board graphics card using the device mamager.
You should disable the on-board video card in the BIOS.
Go to the BIOS config and disable the Video.
