Question about Soyo SY-KT333 DRAGON Ultra Motherboard

1 Answer

No video, monitor and video card are good

Hi. Had a power outage the other day. When power came back on, computer was running, but no video. Monitor said "NO signal, check cables". I did all the obvious things like try another monitor, try another video card, and reset the CMOS via the jumper like it said in the manual. I even replaced the CMOS battery which was going bad. Computer starts up, but I don't hear the hard drives running, so I'm assuming it doesn't boot (even before I reset the CMOS).
When I turn it on, I hear one long beep and two really short, stutter like beeps. If I reset the CMOS and turn it back on, I get the one normal short beep I used to get when all worked well. If I shut it off and turn back on again, I get the long beep and two really short beeps again.
I'm stuck. Any thoughts? Thanks for any input.

    Ok, thanks. But how do I check the BIOS and the Processor if I can't see anything on the screen?

  • borisjr999 Dec 26, 2008

    It was the memory. Thanks for your help! I never would have thought a bad stick of RAM would do that.

    Brother the fault is in your ram because if you pull out the
    all rams from your motherboard then it should beep you to tell you bios are
    there and it not found ram. This whole work is being done by processor.

    If you have 2 rams then try one by one is both slot may any slot is not
    working.

    If you can't get it by changing rams then you can check your processor in
    another board and you can check your bios by placing other working processor and
    rams.

    Remember doing this all pull out your all other extra pci slot items and pull
    out USB port accessories. If possible remove cd rom.



    Hope you will override your problem.

When my computer was power on then cpu was run but the monitor doesn't display ...


If the monitor did not display the CMOS messages as computer was booting then there is an issue either with the monitor or the video card/motherboard.
Is there a light on the monitor to show it has power to it?
Is the video cable connected securely at both ends?
If all above is true then suggest looking at video card.

Asus crosshair socket am2 motherboard not booting


Sounds like your monitor is bad. Try another monitor because if the video card was bad and the monitor is working you would get a No Signal message on the screen. Borrow a monitor from a neighbor, friend, relative or co-worker and connect it to the computer. If the Borrowed monitor displays ok, then your original monitor is bad. If the Borrowed monitor does the same as your original monitor and does not display anything, then there is an issue with your video card.

My screen is not working although the computer turns on with all the lights


When you
When you power up your computer and the monitor screen remains dark, the problem can be either be associated with your monitor, or your computer power supply/video card/motherboard or CPU. Perform the following tests to isolate the problem to either the monitor or the computer.
1. Turn off you PC and monitor. Then verify that the 15 pin video data cable connectors are fully inserted into their receptacles on the rear of your PC and on the rear of the monitor and they are tightened down. (on some monitors the data cable is hard-wired to the monitor). Then make sure that both your monitor power cable is securely plugged into a working AC power receptacle. (You can temporarily plug a lamp into your AC power receptacle to make sure you have a good source of AC power).
3. Turn on the power switch on your monitor. The amber colored LED on your monitor should come on. Then turn on your PC. The fans in your PC start to run and continue to run and the LED on your monitor should change from amber to green.
???
Now if the monitor led remains amber and the screen stays dark you either have a bad monitor or a problem with your video card, motherboard or processor.. Try using a different monitor. If that doesn't solve the problem, you need to have a PC technician test your computer.

Power led is lite, fan at power supply and processor also running.but my monitor is totally blank.


Make sure the monitor is pluggen in. Make sure the monitor is connected to the PC. Try another known working monitor. If you have a video card, with the power to the PC turned off and the power cord unplugged from the PC , pull the video card out an put it back in , this will reseat the card it may help. If you do not have a video card and think it is your intergrated video, try install a video card.

No vedio


swap monitors if monitor is same dell brand then its the monitor. otherwise you can buy a Video card PROVIDED that you can disable from setup the MOBO video card, and install drivers, also speaking of drivers try uninstalling the video and monitor drivers first !! the do mon swap, finally new vid card .

funky things can happen to drivers, esp improper shutting down windows like flip a power switch or not having a UPS and computer shuts down during a power outage or storm. seen this happen as well.

Intel d845,one long 2 short beeps video problems


hi im josh in cebu phils.may i help you? friend try to use this solutions of mine surely it will help you.
Your PC uses beeps to communicate with you when something is wrong with the video setup. Check the settings on your video card to make sure that they're correct for your system. Also check any switches on the motherboard to make sure that they're set up correctly for your type of video card. (You should consult your system's instruction manual for details on this procedure.) Check to make sure that your video card is seated properly in its slot; you may even want to try inserting the card in another slot. If none of these suggestions works, try a new video card, or have your system examined by a professional.
In a pre-Windows 98, system, if you have two video cards installed at the same time, they can sometimes interfere with each other and cause neither to work properly. Try removing one of the cards; if this results in the remaining card working, you need to reconfigure one or both of the cards to better work together. (With Windows 98 and later you can install two video cards to run multiple monitors simultaneously

- Check the monitor if turned on.
- Check all the LED power on the monitor, if it has one.
- Adjust brightness and contrast controls all the way to the maximum.
- Check the video cable from the monitor to the computer to be sure if it is properly connected.
- Check the power cable. If it is connected properly at both ends.
- Try different monitor on your computer. If it does not work, the display card is likely at fault. Replace the display card.
Try your monitor on a different computer. If it does not work, replace the monitor or have it repaired by a trained technician. Just try friend it will help you Good luck.

Monitor doesnt switch on


Hi loudplumber, I doupt you're monitor functions in the manner you're stating. Does the monitor have a on/off button? If yes than you need to turn on the monitor. Check you're monitor, it will have a seperate power cord (That pluges into a wall AC jack) & a data cord which connects to the PC. If everything is connected correctly as I mentioned you should have a display on you're monitor. If you are not getting display than you're onboard integrated graphics card is not working. To test this you can add an AGP 4x 1.5v only graphics card to you're motherboard.
You can buy an AGP 4x 1.5v video card at this link. (Click on the link).
http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/SearchTools/item-details.asp?EdpNo=3636311&CatId=694

This video card can run both 8x & 4x. You can tell it supports the 1.5v because there are only two copper connections (Not counting the end locking tail). If the video card you are buying has three copper connectors it is not 1.5v compatible. The 4x video card arena is getting smaller. Mfg's are not making AGP card that much any more.

Good luck!

This type of problem is so common nowadays. What I did is open up the casing, pulled out the RAM and by using pencil eraser, rubbed the contact pattern. Put it back and turn on your computer. Always work for me and hope it might work for you too.
