No display - ON-chip VGA diabled in BIOS

I have an ACER Acerpower SV. In an effort to get my new PCI video card to boot up at start-up I set the ON-CHIP VGA to "disabled" in BIOS. The result was, I now have no display signal to the monitor at all. Nothing from the on-board monitor port or the new video card port. So obviously I cannot go back in to BIOS to re-enable the setting. I have no display at all. How do I fix this???

Hi ... i think you might solve the problem by removing the battery from *********** board for about 30 seconds or even a few minutes to be sure...... this should reset your bios to factory settings... good luck !

You go change it blind; in other words you do it without seeing what you are doin; yoiu likely can find the instructions or the video on utube to show you where you are goin . you should be able to do this with just seeing what your screen shots look likeand since you don't use the mouse; you just need to visualise your one click at a time comands with your directional arrows and then all the other ones you need are enter and delete ; depending on the key you need to use to go to yoiur bios set-up. And next time you are in contact with your working monitor; take pictures of each frame (screenshot) in your bios and store them in your phone or other pc so that you will always have control of this situation; no matter what happens . Or you could buy these guys' products.LOL

You should of went into the control panel and went to system then hardware and then device manager and disable it there. you probably need to back into setup and enable it. Then go into device manager and disable it there then check while your there if your new one is enabled if it isn't enable it

I need to diable the onboard video card before installing a PCI-E 2.0 graphic card. From what I have read, it's possible this is done automatically, through BIOS, or by a jumper setting. I never received...


It is an option in the BIOS under "Advanced Bios Features". Set Initial Display to PCI Express VGA card. Your options may be slightly different due to different BIOS.

PCI-E recognition issue on intial start up ASUS P5GC-MX/1333


To solve this problem you have to do the following things in the series.

first remove all the extra cards and then connect to the onboard vga connector. then start the sys and go to bios settings. if you know the advanced adjustments then
correct them as follows. otherwise just select load optimized settings.

first go to the video card selection in advanced
and then set the setting to pci/pciinternal or pciint/pci ext

then set the pallette snooping to yes.
shutdown system

place graphics card and then donot change any setting. then you'll get the display.

i have the same motherboard and i also faced this once. it is not a problem it is just misconfiguration.

Acer 8000 desktop. Cleared password moving the jumper pin. Put the jumper pin back turned back on and it will not post to boot. Lights on the keyboard keep blinking and no post to boot.


It is possible that your video settings in the BIOS has been reset. When you move the jumper pin to reset, the BIOS automatically resets to defaults. Depending if you are using a PCI card for video or the integrated graphics card AGP on the motherboard. You need to set this correctly otherwise you will not see anything. Worst case scenario, remove the CMOS battery for ten minutes and when you turn on the computer try to activate setup. go to the advance options and see if you are using the correct settings. I hope this helps.

No video from the board


Check the motherboard user guide for how to reset to default factory settings. If the BIOS is set to work with the on-board only and the on-board VGA is dead the motherboard is supose to detect that and switch to AGP. If is not doing that chances are not only the on-board VGA controller is gone ... the motherboard is gone too.
Try with a PCI video card.

1.Reboot with the AGP or PCI video card installed - assuming the on-board is gone but the motherborad still OK.
2. Press DELETE key
is supose to go in BIOS settings menu.
Browse and Look for on board VGA adapter ENABLE/DISABLE setting or something similar.

(My bet ? You need a new motherboard.)

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.

How do I disable vga on ga-8vm800m?


During boot press DEL to get into standard BIOS settings, while in standard BIOS hold CTL key and press F1 this will alow hidden features to show in BIOS. Enter into Integrated Peripherals and you should now see a entry called INIT DISPLAY FIRST and you should be able to select between PCI Onboard and AGP (Depending on what you have installed). I have the same motherboard and had also upgraded to the 6200 which works great after finding the hidden BIOS features.
Hope this does the trick for you!

Computer boots up but no video display.


If it has onboard video and you've added a video card, sometimes you need to disable the onboard video in the BIOS as it won't send output to both when they are there. I would try a different monitor and eliminate that as a possibility also.
