Question about ASUS T2-AH1 Barebone

1 Answer

Monitor Problem I am having problems with my Viewsonic 19" widescreen monitor. When I connect the VGA cable to its port on the video card, and power on the machine it displays "no signal" and I also get the same problem when I plug the VGA cable into a DVI to VGA adapter and plug that into the video card. I know its not the monitor itself as I am currently using the monitor on another machine, and my Asus T2 AH1 is the only one that gives me problems. The only possibilties I've thought up is possibly the video card is bad, but I dont think that's it, or the DVI to VGA connector I purchased is bad. If it helps the video card is a ATI Radeon Xpress 300, which is what came with the system. Any help is much appreciated.

Re: Monitor Problem

Well assuming you used the same video cable when you tested the monitor on the Asus PC you?re left with: - Physical problem with the Asus video card. - Asus video card configuration problem. - BIOS configuration problem - Possibly a problem with the DVI/VGA adaptor depending on the answer below. A couple of questions about the Asus before we start: - I?m not sure I understand how the DVI/VGA converter figures into this. Is your cable coming off the monitor DVI thus you need it to plug into the Asus VGA connector? If yes who is the manufacturer of the device and what model do you have? - Has the Asus worked in the past with another monitor or is this new? - What is its history/configuration?

I have a lg flatron LCD w1934s-bn when I switch on the computer display coming and with in seconds monitor going in power saving mode. I change the VGA cable, change the system also same problem.

If your monitor goes into Power Saving Mode with different computers, it is most likely the signal input board in the monitor. I'm sorry to tell you your monitor is shot. It is probably repairable if you can find the correct board. Monitors are relatively inexpensive at the moment, and going by the "VGA only" input, it is time to upgrade, You will also get better resolution and picture quality.

I have a problem with lenovo s10-2. help me fix when i turn i see power displayed also the fan activated for just a seconds after that it will stop. no displayed on the monitor.

Let's trouble shoot a little. Disconnect everything inside. Ie. the cd, dvd, HDD, floppy if applicable. Also, video card if you added one to it. Connect monitor to the onboard video and lets see if we get power with nothing connected. If so then start plugging things back in one at a time until you find the culprate

Hi, i need help with my monitor, it makeing some really strange interferences and i need help

Hi yaniv336,
There are couples of easy steps that will solve your problem!
1. Look out for any Electromagnetic field emitting devices next to your
monitor and move themaway(like phones, big magnets, speakers...)
2.Make sure that the monitor's plug, is well plugged and notmoving around.
3. On some systems, it is possible to reset therefresh rate of the monitor to line frequency (60 Hz) without serious sideeffects. More often, though, this will result in a sacrifice of resolution, andin almost all cases, the jitter will have been traded for flicker (the refreshrate has been increased by the monitor manufacturer to avoid flicker - the eyecan detect a refresh of the image at 60 Hz). Further, if the backgroundmagnetic fields are strong enough, even setting the refresh rate to 60 Hz willnot remove all of the jitter.
4. If all above doesn't work, and you can't stand the interference simply buyand LCD screen and never have these kind of trouble again.

Since installing a GeForce 8400 gs video card, my monitor has had faint flickering lines running across it. They're horizontal if on my native resolution(1440x900) and diagonal if I swap to something...

Sounds like you need to update your driver software, which can be found here: If that doesn't help, then it seems like you have a faulty video card, sorry about that...

I hope this helps!

Montior 14 inch montior ligt on but not disply what is problem

Is the monitor DVI + VGA? blue and white ports (2)?

If so, you may need to hit the source button to switch sources. This can happen rarely.

Another option is to try a different monitor to verify that it is indeed your monitor that is broken.

Good luck! :)

Screen problem blackout

Make sure the video cable is securely plugged into the VGA port of your motherboard or graphics card. If you still don't get signal and are using onboard graphics then your motherboard has become faulty. I suggest you take your computer to your nearest PC store and have a technition diagnose the extent of the damage. If you were using a graphics card before you lost signal the you will need to plug the monitor video cable into onboard graphics. If you get signal now then it means that your graphics card has become faulty. If you still don't get signal after plugging into onboard graphics then it means either youir motherboard is faulty or your graphics card or both. Best take it to a PC technition to have it tested. Another thing to try is to try another monitor on the system to test if the other is malfunctioning or not.

As i turn on my pc, i hear 1long and 2short beep..and the light of the monitor power is blinking..what could be the problem? Hope that you can help me..TNX

The beep code you are getting Indicates a video error has occurred and the BIOS cannot initialize the video screen to display any additional information. Plan English - you have a bad video card or port. If your video output is on a PCI card, replace the card. If it's on the board, you will need to replace your motherboard.

Good Luck

Bought barebones(B69-9005)hade trouble installing win 7 kept saying no signed driver,. called them , they sent me soft ware for driver install. started dowloading then stoped. now monitor just reads no...

If it has onboard video it may be a bad video cable or messed up pin on one af the connectors. If it is a installed video card the cable could still be one problem but also try pulling the video card out unplugging the power supply cable from the mother board for about 20 seconds or so. Then reslot the video card into the mother board and plug the power supply back into the mother board and see if that helps. I have also had to take the small flat battery out of mother board for a second or two to make it reset. If you decide to do the battery thing make sure the power supply is unplugged from mother board. Good luck.=)

Problem with Pundit-R and PCI graphics card

I had a similar problem when installing a GeForce 5200 256mb PCI card in my Asus Pundit-S running winxp which I overcame when I got the sequencing of installation right.

First, Physically install the card in one of the available PCI slots. Using the onboard graphics to your monitor, boot the system. Windows will detect your new card and prompt you to install. Cancel Windows installation and use the supplied Radeon install disc for driver and program installation. After that, Reboot and enter your system's BIOS. On my system, repeatedly hitting the delete key gets me there.

Now this is where it may differ. In my BIOS, I needed to select the ADVANCED Menu followed by PCI CONFIGURATION. If your BIOS does not have the ADVANCED menu, you may have to upgrade it by downloading from the Asus Global Site. That is a whole other challenge but it is possible...hehe

The two options that need to be changed in the PCI Config Menu are:
Primary VGA BIOS -> PCI VGA Card, and
Onboard VGA -> Disabled.

Save changes and exit BIOS however, on exiting, you will need to unplug the VGA/DVI cable from your onboard port and connect it to your PCI card port. My card will not display the content unless it is plugged in from initial boot so you might have to restart your computer if you are not quick enough to catch that boot cycle.

Selecting these options should avoid any onboard conflict between devices as the Pundit-R has an onboard Radeon 9100 chip. I suspect the two same-make chips is where the conflict problem lies plus you don't need to be running the onboard graphics if you have a dedicated PCI card.

I hope this helps.

Good Luck.

Intel 865G drivers

Have you tried downloading the newest most up-to-date drivers availiable? If not I would try that first.

If that fails to work, I would check and see if there are any bios updates as the video card is part of the motherboard. However, I would think that since it works without the drivers, it would be a driver issue, not bios. When you have the drivers installed, does the video show up while booting and then fail in Windows?

You may also be hitting a range or resolution that is not supported by your TV. That being said, you could check your TVs owner manual for supported modes. If you do not have your owners manual, try setting the video card at some different resolutions with a monitor, shut down, plug back into the tv, and then restart the computer. If you find one that works, great!
