well if you did not remove the video card from the machine then it is still pumping out video on that cards connection. bios will recognize the only working video out but if you have a card in it it will choose the video card over the on board video. So reconnect the old monitor to the old video card and see if it will work. if it does then remove the video card after shutting down and reboot the monitor connected to the on board video. The new configuration should be recognized, then shut down and place the new monitor in the on board video port. now the monitor may need to be told to look at the correct port either digital or rgb.
If you get a beep when you turn on the computer that means its working, multiple beeps indicate an error, no beeps at all mean that the processor is not initiliazing..
turn off computer and unplug it
1.) locate the jumper called or labled jp1
2.) its a 2 pin jumper and is currently set to 1 and 2
3) set it to 3 and 4
4.) set it back to 1 and 2
5.) try turning on the system
if you cant locate the jumper or yours is different what we are trying to achieve here is clearing the cmos. this can be done using the jumper or
1.) unplug your system
2.) remove the memory
3.) remove the battery
4.) press the power button 5 times to discharge the capicators
5.) replace batter
6.) replace memory
Try booting it now
if the above fails
try taking out your processor and putting it back in
if your mainboard has a clockspeed setting ensure it is set according to your porcessor clock speed (look at manual for details)
ensure you got all the necessary power cables connected
If you had the problem before you changed our processor then it night have been your mainboard that needs changing.
If you have a video card,ensure that the monitor is plugged into your videocard and not the onboard video the mainboard comes with.
Try your processor on another system to ensure its working, just cause it new doesnt mean it is good.
You can try clearing the cmos multiple times with the memory pluged in or without the memory to see if that helps
if all else fails then ensure you check the processor , only if the processor is good replace your main board..
It could be your video either the on board Video or the card you have installed. If you installed a Video card make sure it is fully seated and properly installed. If you are using the on board video make sure you have the jumpers set correctly and you have no bent pins on your cable to the monitor. Test the monitor on another computer to be sure the monitor is working.
Good day sir, hi it seems you are having problems with your monitor. Let us first try to run the PC using only one monitor.
PC is off, remove your 2nd graphics board by opening the side panels, locate the CMOS jumper, usually its near the battery, the setting is 1 2, place the jumper to 2 3 momentarily, after about 3 seconds, place it back to 1 2. If you cannot find the CMOS jumper, just remove the battery.
connect the monitor to its built in graphics vga.
turn on pc, as this point you should see the video on your monitor.
PC is off, place back your battery if you have remove it. check to see if your 2nd graphics board is good, test it on other pc.
if your 2nd graphics board is good. Install it on the motherboard. connect a second monitor.
power on the PC, you should see on one monitor the boot up, and on the other monitor a message. just wait for windows to boot up. you will see the other monitor be an extension of your desktop.
Make necessary settings for both monitor. Thats it.
If you still cant operate both display, do it several times. If still nothing happens review your work, get help from a friend who knows.
Verify that the VGA cable is fully seated and connected. If you can test the computer on another monitor or test another computer on that monitor. Are you getting any video display on the monitor? Does it display the start-up screen then goes away when windows starts? If so start the computer and press F5. A menu will come up and select to start computer in VGA mode. This should bring up windows so you can change the screen resoloution to something the monitor can handle. If the computer does not display anything and the monitor is testing good then the on-board video or video card might be faulty. You could change the video card if it has one or add one to the system if it has on-board video. You could also try re-setting the BIOS jumper to clear the cmos or pull out the watch battery for 20 seconds. Another thing to try is to disconnect all hardware...cd-rom, hard drive, floppy drive, and memory dimms and see if it boots up with display. If that works the you will need to re-install each piece of hardware one at a time and re-boot until the problem happens again. Once it does that is your problem device. You could also try swapping out the power supply and see if that is the cause of the problem.
when you say you have it plugged into the on-board video output.. does that mean there is a graphics card installed too? used to be graphics card installed? if there is or was then its possible that there is a bois setting that tells your computer to use the existent or non-existent graphics card. either was your onboard is going to shut down. This is one theory.. but since its is turning off once you get to your desk top the more likely reason is that its software based and you either have the wrong resolution, driver, or refresh rate selected to use when windows boots. Toy around with diffrent resolutions, refresh rates, also if you have a graphics card plug it into that. your on board most certinly will not be enabled if you have a graphics card.
VGA MODE in vista:
Restart the computer and immediately start pressing the F8 key, once
per second. At the selection screen, use the up/down keys to select
"Enable VGA Mode", then press the "Enter" key.. If it works, it will
bring up the basic VGA drivers in "normal" Windows and should allow you
to install the Vista compatible drivers for your new card. After
installing the new drivers, restart the computer and if it remains in
VGA, you should then be able to adjust the resolution, etc. from the
do you get any video on the LCD like a menu or something? if the screen has power and you are sure your computer is putting out a video signal it may be the inverter board on the LCD, this board feeds hi-voltage to the lamps that displays a screen and is a common problem with all LCD screens.
I assume your Samsung Magic CGB5607L is CRT monitor (Not LCD). It could be the problem with "Refresh Rate" the monitor can't handle. Set the lowest resolution with lowest refresh rate. (800x600 @ 60 Hertz). in Display Properties
