Question about Soyo SY-KT333 DRAGON Ultra Motherboard

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.

What do I do after power outage and monitor will not work?


If the device was plugged in when the outage started and / or when power was restored - it may have suffered a power outage related voltage "spike" (or instantaneous rise in voltage greater than it is designed to handle).

Unplug it for 5 - 10 minutes and reconnect. If it fails to function you may need repairs or replacement. Try a different monitor on the computer before condemning it - it may be a problem with the computer's video card instead.

My HP W1907 monitor works fine until I try to play The Sims 3 game. I play for several minutes or hours and the monitor shows the message that it is going to sleep and the light on the monitor goes...


Hi there. I had the same problem months ago when I try to play high end games like Sims 3 my monitor goes into power saving mode. I tried to check every possible causes of the problem. It could be that your computer is overheating try to clean your computer and check if your fans still works. Second it could me your power supply malfunctioning, maybe it does not meet the required power to make your game work. Last cause is your video card malfunctioning, what I did is to just buy a new video card and it works.
If you do not have spare power supply or video card you can go to a computer repair shop for them to check the possible problem that causes it to go into power saving mode. It can also save you money before you can buy a new one.
Hope this helps, Have a good day!

Old monitor wont switch on


hi friend,
First, try connecting your monitor to a known good PC, possibly the old laptop you are using now. If the monitor works, the problem is with the video card in your PC. If the monitor does not come on, it is the monitor. It is usually cheaper to purchase a new monitor than to have an old one repaired, unless the monitor is still under warranty.

Try plugging a known good monitor to your PC. If the monitor works, your old monitor is fried and needs to be replaced.

If Your monitor works when connected to another PC, the problem could be your video card. First, then you turn on your PC, do the power supply and case cooling fans run. If they don't, it could be the power supply.

Next, open the computer case. Before you do anything inside, unplug the power.

IMPORTANT!! Touch any metal portion of the computer case to ground yourself to the PC. The slightest static spark can destroy computer circuits.

If the video card is the card type that plugs into a slot on the motherboard, remove the retaining screw or fastener at the top of the card, carefully remove the card, handling the card by the edges as to not disturb the circuits on the card, and re-install the card. Sometimes simply re seating the card corrects the problem.

If that doesn't work, replace the video card with a similar type card. Maybe now is a good time for a video card upgrade.

If the video card is integrated into the motherboard, you can only install a new card into one of the PCI slots on the motherboard. When the PC boots for the first time, go into bios and disable the on board video card. hope this helps u
please rate me..............
thank u for using fixya

ACER P221W No display and power light blinking


Hello,

You have a monitor with a common problem. After a few years some LCD monitors will blow a power supply. The problem is caused by parts called capacitors overheating in the confined space of he monitor. If you are good at electronics repair/soldering you can usually fix he problem. Check out a few pictures on my web site www.ccl-la.com/badcaps.htm You can take the back cover off your monitor and look for the bad parts, replace any that look like the pictues and your monitor should work fine. The capacitors do need to be installed with the correct + and - connections, note the stripe on the old one and insert the new one the same way. If you don't want to try the repair yourself we offer a repair service for $35 plus shipping. If the monitor does not have any bad caps then I would be that when the video card died it sent a spike to the monitor and killed the driver board. I hope this helps, if so please rate my solution.

Blinking monitor screen


this might be overly technical, but it sounds like the video card is on the blink (no pun intended). I'd power down the machine, open it up, pull the video card, re-seat it, and power the computer back on.
If it continues to do this, that card is probably toast.

Problems After Power Outage


Sounds like the power outage damaged the video interface could be damaged. You might have had a spike that effected the red input of the monitor. You can try to order a video interface, or like I suggest to others, look for the same monitor but broken on ebay and swap out the interface board. Chances are this will fix your problem. Good luck
