Onboard video has failed..how do I change in bios to video card ?

Without any video on the gateway GM5088 because of a failed onboard video chip how would I be able to change in the bios to disable the onboard video so I may add a video card on the available pci-e slot? I was told this is a common problem with this model motherboard where the video output fails!

    I understand what you mean......but when the video card was installed I still did not get anything on the monitor to be able to get to the bios to disable the board chip! Thanks anyway

    Yes the Monitor does work but yet nothing after installing the video card in the slot!

    i think there is no need to change ur bios settings...
    install ur vedio card, bios automatically detects and support for basic display after that u need 2 install drivers in windows..boot ur windows in safe mode..uninstall onboard drivers..
    i will check it and catch u again....k

First install the video card in the pci slot first so that you have access to your monitors screen for you to disable the on board video chip or video card, go to the CMOS setup by pressing del key. once there you can browse through the CMOS setup to disable the on board video chip.

NO ONBOARD VIDEO


Hello here is the ASUS homepage:

http://support.asus.com/Download.aspx?SLanguage=en&m=P5N73-AM&p=1&s=22

Here is a list of beep codes:

http://www.computerhope.com/beep.htm

Your pci-e graphic card is failing or has a defect.
The problem could also be the power supply, not giveing enough power.
When you add a pci-e graphic card on the mainboard, the onboard graphic should deactivate itselves.
Try to remove the pci-e graphic card, and use the onboard graphic.
If still no picture, change the power supply.
Its not possible to change settings in the bios blindfolded.
You can reset the bios by removeing the cmos battery.
But ofcouse it could also be the mainboard itselves failing.
This is rarely happening, so i hope its just the power supply.
Try also to look for visual defects on the mainboard, especially the condensators on the mainboard.


Good luck

Install new video card in Gateway GM5072 with Pheonix bios and disable oonboard video


There should be an option to disable the onboard VGA connection within the BIOS of the computer.
Plug your monitor into the onboard video output to do this.

EV3A GT520 video card installation makes my screen go blank. My gateway computer has an integrated chip for video, and does not even recognize the new card but its plugged in, fan working, etc.


some bios settings disables the add on video cards. to enable them go to bios setting by pressing DEL or F12 while power on your system. (u will see that a message appears "press ----- Key to enter bios settings). after entering bios setting u will see onboard VGA enable/disable. u have to disable onboard VGA in order to get the display thruogh VGA card.

Problem with onboard video of a compaq sr2032x


The onboard video card is actually set to secondary when you plug in a PCI or PCI-E video card. If no video image is showing then there may be further damage inside the mother board.

try only connect Monitor and keyboard, and check for booting (disconnect all the rest (HDD, CD DRIVE, Sound Card, Network Card, ....) then try connect one by one and always off to change hardware config.

If dont work with monitor and keyboard, try reset bios(jumper),check again, then replace memory modules (must be compatible to new motherboard), evan dont work, send back the motherboard for defective motherboard.

Pc powers up but no video on screen gateway 420gr desktop


Yes generally speaking when you drop in a videocard it typically will disable the built on one. You may have to disable it though. I know you said you did not see the onboard video in BIOS but there is almost always a setting in there to turn it off.

The monitor doesn't go on. the orange standby light blinks on and off. is there a reset?


Sounds like the issue is with your video card/onboard video chip or the connection between the monitor and the pc. Verify the cable from the monitor is connected to the pc firmly & snugly. See if the monitor gets a picture on a known working pc. If so, then it's a (relatively) simple fix - work on the videocard - if add-in, try reloading drivers, ensure the onboard video is disabled in the BIOS, or (worst case) replace the video card. If it's onboard, again, try replacing/updating drivers and, if that fails your next step is to either get an add-in video card, or replace the mobo.

Media Center has an Intel graphics chip on the mother board. How do I omit using it so I can install a PCI video card?


Have you tried adding the card and see if it defaults to the card rather than the onboard video? Many BIOS are set that way by default.

Go into your BIOS and look at the onboard devices. It is preferable to tell your BIOS to first look for an add-in card and default back to onboard if you don't find one. But you can disable your onboard video, then save and reboot.
