No video output on Intel D915GEVL motherboard with Intel GMA900
I ;have a system with an Intel D915GEVL motherboard that has the Intel GMA900 onboard graphics.
Recently the monitor quit working. I replaced the monitor and it worked fine. I then did a general preventive maintenance on the system. I cleaned inside the case and removed and cleaned the processor heatsink and fan. After I put the system back together and started it I received two long beeps during POST and then it shut down automatically in less than one minute. I checked and found that one side of the heatsink bracket was not secure. I secured the bracket and restarted the system. Now I do not receive any beep codes during startup but there is no video. I replaced the new monitor with a known working monitor, but to no avail.
I would appreciate any assistance you may give me.

if you would power down the computer and the monitor and unplug the cord going to the pc from the monitor and the power cord for the computer,,, now open up the case and find the powersupply cable going to the motherboard and unplug it now preess the computers on button than the reset button .. this will discharge any esd than wait 3 min and plug it back in than connect the monitor to the pc and plug in the power cord for the pc and monitor and turn on the monitor and you should get a messzage that the monitor is working now turn on the computer and see if it works let me know how this works ok

Hi Harikris, no you can not install just any graphics card. You're Intel D845GLLY board uses an onboard graphics card. (It's an AGP graphics card). If it's you're intention to install a new graphics card you must use a PCI graphics card. (Understand that the AGP onboard graphics is faster than a PCI graphics card). However, the PCI cards do use their own memory. (Which fee’s you're system memory to run windows. The Intel D845GLLY has 4 PCI (White) slots, onboard. You can add a video card into the system. You're onboard video card does use you're system memory to function. If you're PC has 512MB of system memory & you're video card is set to use 128MB of memory. Than you're system is left to run with 128MB. One would think you're system is running a little slow. The Intel D845GLLY motherboard can use up to 256MB of system memory. You can set the amount of system memory in the bios as shown on page 49, table 18. In you're manual. If you do not have you're manual you can download it from here: http://www.intel.com/support/motherboards/desktop/d845glly/sb/cs-008853.htm May I suggest you increase you're system memory to 1GB. Than increase you're graphics memory to 256MB. You're system will run faster & so will you're graphics card. These older Intel motherboards require memory current for you're board. Click this link: http://www.memory-up.com/Memory/IntelD12696.html If you still feel that you want to use the slower PCI graphics card you can choose from any listed on this link: http://www.newegg.com/product/ProductList.aspx?N=2000380048+1069609642&Submit=ENE&SubCategory=48&nm_mc=KNC-GoogleAdwords&cm_mmc=KNC-GoogleAdwords-_-NA-_-NA-_-NA You will also need to change a setting in you're bios to boot to the PCI card instead of the AGP onboard card.
