Problem is not noted, but boot options are internal hard drive, external hd (USB device), optical drive, and network card (could be PCI card).

SOURCE: System cannot boot

huh that is odd, you might want to try f8ing the start up and running "Last know good configuration that worked" or you could try booting it in safe mode. You also might try reformating the drive you installed the updates too. Another thing that can cuase it is your RAM you might try booting with only one stick of RAM in. Try thoughs and let me know what you found out

SOURCE: how to disable onboard/integrated video in bios

I would suggest attempting to configure it through windows. Go start, control panel, display and set the secondary output which should be your pci card to display the primary screen. If that does not work I would suggest going onto the hp website and searching for further assistance.

SOURCE: computer won't boot after adding ram

It could be one of the following:
1. You fried the motherboard when you replaced the RAM. This is the worst case scenario, but it does happen. In any case, don't replace your PC yet!
2. Your system was off too long, and the battery drained. This does actually happen, believe it or not. The battery stores the computer's BIOS setup information and if it drains (goes dead), the computer doesn't know what to do when you turn it on. The first signs of a draining battery are usually time being lost on the clock (slowing), or "C Drive" errors/warnings that come up but the system is still booting up all the way too. If you've had either of these happening before you added the RAM (and they're things you'd probably notice), then I'd suspect the battery.
3. You unknowingly knocked something loose when you were dealing with the RAM. I only did this once, because it took me FIVE HOURS to figure out. To fix this, be very careful and make sure you are GROUNDED. Don't touch anything on the motherboard that you don't have to, but for all plugs and other removable connectors, make sure they are snug. Do the same with all of the drives while you are in there.
3. The obvious question is: Did you purchase the correct RAM? I'm assuming you already verified this (if not, it could be the problem). If the RAM is ok, are you sure your motherboard can handle the addition? There's a limit to the amount of RAM any motherboard can recognize. Putting too much RAM in can confuse your computer.

There are other reasons, but I'd hafta vote for the battery. It just sounds like your computer is turning on and doesn't know what to do. If it is the battery, it's very simple to replace. You will find it on the motherboard - it looks like a watch battery on steroids (it's about the size of a penny or nickel). Take it out and take it to your friendly computer store. A new battery is about $8 or so.

SOURCE: Firewire PCI card not recognized

Hello,

Sometimes, when one is inserting a card, one does not push it firmly in place. If some contacts are not well established, the card may not be recognized.

Hope it helps.

No signal. Installed in a Evga x58 3x sli motherboard.


Is the card seated in the slot correctly.
Did you check the bios by tapping the correct key when the computer boots and making sure the computer is set to use the PCI express slot. Sometimes the bios will not allow the PCI express slot to function without manually configuring it to do so.

try booting in safe mode, and watch as the drivers are opened, as safe mode boots. take note of the last driver or file which it stops on before freezing or resetting, then look up (google) the name of the file or driver (.dll file), to find out where your problem is. if it turns out to be a driver file associated with your phone modem, then it is your phone modem which is preventing the computer from starting.

if that doesnt work, then strip the computer down completely to 1 ram stick, the cpu, mobo, video card (or integrated) and 1 hard drive. disable any unnecesarry integrated components (such as the soundcard) in BIOS, and remove any usb devices or pci cards which are not absolutely necessary to boot the computer (such as a phone modem card, an external hard drive or wireless network card).

the computer should boot once stripped down to the bare essentials and all unnecessary hard ware is disabled/removed. if it boots, then add back/reenable your extra cards, and devices one at a time, until you find the device which is keeping it from booting.

if it will still not boot when stripped down, then it is an essential, such as the motherboard, which is at fault.

Pc boots and stays on the black screan


The current configuration of the Skystar card is probably trying to use the same interrupt as your video or there is another hardware conflict between your PCI card and something else in the system. Boot into BIOS without the Skystar card in the machine and go to the PCI options. Tell it to reset the PnP information (actually happens on the next reboot). Exit and save the changes but shut off the computer without allowing it to boot up. Install the Skystar card and turn on the computer. The BIOS should reconfigure all of your Plug and Play hardware to automatically eliminate any hardware conflicts and the system should come up normally.

PC not booting when AVERmedia TV tuner card is inserted


Techguru2009: Seems you might have a conflict with your I/O. You need to reset the bios either by loading defaults or just remove the CMOS battery for ten minutes. After start the computer without the pci card. If all is well, then shutdown. insert the card in a different slot on the motherboard. Power up and the bios should recognize the update. Hope this helps.

IBM R40 2722 1802 Error Message


This is due to the fact that IBM laptops have a list of accepted devices, and the pci card is not recognised in the list. On IBM - Amilo, Mini PCI card slot is usually at the back of computer. Locate and remove Mini PCI wireless card, you will not have integrated wireless after this.
Other solution is to find the option to disable mini PCI in bios settings.
Here is how mini pci wireless card looks like:

Tyan S3992 MOBO with scsi drives and tape drive


Only if your BIOS supports booting off the particular device. You could also try to swtich the two PCI slots. Put the tape drive controller in the 1st slot,and the SCSI controller in the 2nd slot.

Which tape drive is it? Is there a firmware update for the BIOS for that PCI controller? I would perhaps contact the vendor of the tape drive/controller

Try putting in a PCI vid card. Just an older one. Not a PCI- Express unless you have one.

I had the same problem. And the dipwits at ECS programmed the BIOS to default with an PCI vid card. Not on-board.

Then, just go into BIOS and change the boot 'Init Display first' to "on board" or something like that under PnP/PCI Configurations.

Under "Advanced Chipset Features" 'Onboard GPU' make sure it is {Enable if No EXT GPU] or always enable or something like that.

Believe me I had the problem. Was ready to dump it, or do a RMA. Messed around for a year and 1/2 then as a last resort put in an old 2mg PCI card. And it booted right up. I was pissed as hell that they would set the default to an EXT card on a board that claims to be ONBOARD video. Believe me they are going to hear about it.

Also depending on the ram installed. As I am having this problem. Now. It defaults to single channel DDR2. And I can only get 1 533 stick to work. For some reason, the board refuses to post when I have the second of a matched pair in the slot. So if you have that - try taking out the second stick. But try the video deal first.
