Question about Abit BD7II-RAID Motherboard

Motherboard don't allow to run monitor

Hi. I've got old IBM motherboard (about 2002 year or early).
I've uninstalled HDD, scanned it with antivirus on the other pc and then installed it back. Monitor don't work. PC is working correctly, but ANY monitor doesn't work.There was a complicated method of uninstalling and i remember i plugged off some wire (there is a button inside the case and it's getting pressed, when the case is closed) and i can't find correct inputs for that pair of wires.

    The PC has no videocard. (or maybe it have onboard video).
    PC doesn't beep at all. (has PC speaker, but now it's silent).
    The instruction is lost years ago.
    I was carefully looking on the motherboard and didn't find any name or serial number. I never payed much attention to such wires, cause usually they have a lamp (diode) to control, or usb. i mean it's not neccessary wires usually.

    Such problem is appeared cause it's very old design, i think.
    I'm not good in old ones.

    Could such problem be solved without "unnecessary" wires?
    Could i force motherboard to run monitor?

    Ah. The HDD had lots of viruses, and i formatted it.

  • starfish_by Jan 08, 2009

    And now the PC reacts ok on the boot disc. But monitor has no signal (any monitor).

  • starfish_by Jan 09, 2009

    Good day. Thank you for your solutions.
    2 Smithbrother: i made it cause there is no videocard, so i think your answer is not near. surely i can mistake. your link didn't opened also. Thanks anyway.
    hisheirs: Thank you very much for trying to understand the situation.

    Today, i've visited support center (or repairing?).
    They fixed the problem with a.... eraser(!). Master\guy putted off my RAM, cleaned contacts with eraser and plugged it back. Everything works now.

    Thank You.

It has an AGP 4 video card slot. Look at the card and see what brand it is and download a driver for it. Has no videl driver listed and I see no "onboard video " referenced.

    I don't understand this, You state twoce that no monitor works.  I take the time to look up the link for your specific mother board, showing you the video connection is a AGP 4 and you vote my answer as inappropate.

Those wires .. are the intrusion detect switch .. they are not your issue .. but if they are connected somewhere and your not 100% confident .. I'd disconnect it ..
on the system they is a lable w/ a "Type" number and "Model" number .. what are those ..
Do you have a PCI Video Adapter .. or is in on the MB .. or both ?
Are there 2 HD15 connectors ..
does the system beep at you when you power on?
if you have both a PCI card and an Embedded graphics controller .. remove the PCI .. connect your monitor to the embedded and try it

    any monitor ?

    are your using the same monitor cable ?

    when you say the PC acts ok on boot .. exactly what do you mean ? You see HDD activity .. as though it is booting ?

    do you have access to a PCI or if appropriate AGP video card ?

    try installing that and see what happens ..

    at this point .. it seems the embedded video card is suspect or the system was in an environment when it had 2 video controllers and the embedded was disable in BIOS ..

    is this JUST and IBM MB .. not an IBM system ?

    if a system the type/model numbers are located on the chassis .. either on the rear or on the bezel

Skipping cursor is the main prolem

Hi Jack, thanks for contacting me to help you. Well, I have few questions since you didn't specify anything in detail; What is the operating system installed on your computer? e.g. Windows xp or Windows vista or Windows 7.... What antivirus program is installed on your computer?
Still have questions, but let's proceed anyway. I don't think this it will be a good idea to set up remote connection and most of all, it looks like we are in different time zones (I am in India).
Please follow the instructions given below:
Hardware; For hardware issues, please try to install another mouse on the same system and check whether the same problem persists or not.
If your mouse has a driver, please uninstall and reinstall it.
I would also suggest you to place the mouse on different mouse pads, never place on table or on a plastic type surface. This is to verify that there's no hardware issues.
Software/Virus;It would be a pleasure if you could let me know when and how it happened. In most cases, it hardware issue, but in rare cases, viruses cause this problem. Make sure to scan your computer using different types of antiviruses. But remember not to install multiple antivirus programs at a time. If you've finished scanning with Avira and the problem persists, then uninstall it and then again download and install Avast. Download Links are given below. Malwarebytes is also a recommended program for the same problem. I hope you can still install programs or run .exe files.
I would suggest you to scan your whole drives/computer in Safe Mode. With Avast you can even Scan in Boot Mode means during startup...
The following are the download Links..
Avira FREE
Avast FREE
Malwarebytes FREE

Good Luck.
Let me know if you need further help..
Note: All Programs I've mentioned are Free Versions and of course approved softwares, once installed, don't forget to update before running the scans.
Thanks for using FixYa.

Each time I open my cp up comes the PopUp 'Your computer might be at rish. antivirus software might not be installed' i thought that was all included

either you don't have any antivirus software or it has expired. most systems come with a trial version(allowing you to decide if you want to keep it or choose something else) yours has probably expired.
if you open control panel and go to add/remove programs it will tell you which software you have. you should uninstall the old version and reboot prior to installing the new software
there are many free ones out there and search for antivirus.
antivir has done very well at a reasonable price for me.

hope this helps

Found a virus in cosmi perfect pdf creator essentials but cant seem to uninstall the program

If your sure you have a virus I would try to download Malwarebytes free version here;
Run the quick scan first and let it make necessary repairs. If you have an antivirus you're happy with, run a full scan after that. If you don't, you can download a free version here;
Run a full scan and let it make necessary repairs. Then alot some time to run a full scan with Malwarebytes. This process will take some time but, should remove viruses that are blocking you from uninstall and/or may even repair your problem all together. You may want to consider CCleaner also, unfortunately they don't offer it free any more but, it's a good all around cleaner and, will clean your registry as well as unused files. You can get that here;

Hi, I am using IBM E74 black color monitor. Frequently Monitor settings menu keeps popping up. This popup will remain on the screen even after pressing the Exit button on the monitor. Please let me...

if the monitor setting menu is from the Operating System (windows xp the like ...)
then this can be that your system is not that clean, try some clean up program
(like ccleaner from and also run antivirus full scan of your system
might helps. Try, there u can find many tools or antivirus to download.

If the popout is from the monitor it self. then you might try to check the cables
connecting the your monitor to CPU also the power cord. sometime lack of power
can badly affect the monitor or even damage it.

Hope that helps.

Trend micro pc-cillin 2002 license key


To start trend micro pc-cillin is not a free software. Free license keys distributed with motherboards are only valid for one year from installation.

Renewal is not free and must be purchased from Trend Micro, see:Antivirus, Anti-Spam and Internet Security Software - Trend Micro USA

Additionally the 2002 version of PC Cilling is outdated, rather than installing an old version and downloading updates, better installing a newer antivirus.

Here free antivirus:

Hi i`ve got a compaq laptop, and it`s and old version, no cam,bluetooth .. got it a year back .. i`m online w`ever i get the time .. offlate its been very slow .. i`ve not done a disk clean up as i dont...

Go to Start Menu, point at Control Panel and right click then select 'Open'.

First, check the programs you have installed. It's songs and videos right? Then, open "Programs and Features".

Take your time to select programs you don't need one after the other and click "Uninstall". Just leave Media players, converters and burners or special type readers/writers.

Secondly, check if Windows Update is doing a quick and silent one on your software. Still in Control Panel, click "Windows Update" and choose to turn off updates entirely.

Now, the baloon comes up at your task bar. Well, in that section of control panel, choose "Change the way Security Center" alerts me and uncheck "Updates".

Thirdly, Update your antivirus and do a full scan of your computer.

Fourthly, if you use Microsoft Security Essentials, you can have a restore point created automatically on each scheduled system scan.

In that way you can do a disk cleanup after such scan. To be on the safer side, keep "System Restore" on.

After a disk cleanup, check if your files are intact and do the disk cleanup option in the second tab of your disk properties "Clean Restore points" except the most recent.

I guess the System Restore option should be your point of call and disk cleanup to the most recent.

I hope this works for you.

Dell Inspiron 531 (desktop) won?t turn on/boot

You've either got a bad motherboard or a bad processor (I'd lean to the motherboard being bad). I would honestly take this into a computer repair shop and have them check both.

Computer wont power on.


if you,ve changed the motherboard, i,d suggest the problem lies with a faulty stick of ram. or 1 of the memory slots are faulty.

failing this, try a different CPU.
