    just make sure you are plugging in all power to video card some require you to make an extra connection from power supply. your motherboard might have a connection like this as well.

Why some graphic motherboard in Graphic card port disply came but in normal display not came


Difficult to understand your question.
If an external monitor works then the problem is Cheapest to most expensive:
MB to Power inverter cable is bad (No light to board) to check shine a flash light at you screen if still black not this
Power inverter is bad
(No light to board) to check shine a flash light at you screen if still black not this
Cable from Motherboard to Laptop screen is bad flashing on wiggle test will show flickering image
Display panel on laptop is bad if this is the case replace the Display cable/ Inverter power cable/LCD
this may still not solve the problem if you are not sure take to a local repair shop

How to add second monitor on ECS RS482-M


Doesn't work that way Max.

You can use EITHER the OnBoard Graphics,
OR;
the Add-On Card graphics. (Graphics card)

BIOS will NOT support both at the same time.

If you wish to use dual monitors, get an AGP card that has more than one graphics port on it.

For example, although I'm using a graphics card based on the PCI Express technology, and not AGP technology; my card has a VGA port, DVI port, and HDMI port.

1) VGA Connector; http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/VGA_Connector

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Male_VGA_connector.jpg


2) DVI; http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Digital_Visual_Interface

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Dvi-cable.jpg

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Digital_Visual_Interface#Connector

3) HDMI; http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/HDMI

I use the VGA port, and the DVI port.

RCA EN-V L26HD31, (26 inch HDTV) to the VGA port.
HP 2009M 20 inch Widescreen monitor to the DVI port.

Had to install drivers for HP 2009M.

Let's say I had two DVI ports on the graphics card.
(ATI Radeon HD5450 is the graphics card I have)

But I have a monitor with a VGA cable, and a monitor with a DVI cable.
I would (And have) use a VGA to DVI Adapter.
One example,

http://www.directron.com/dvi.html

Note that the DVI is Male, and the VGA is Female.
The graphics card DVI connector is Female.
The VGA Cable connector is Male.

So.............what is the manufacturer name, and model number of the graphics card; plus what type of monitors are you trying to use?
That is, what type of monitor cables do they have?

Know this;
My HDTV I'm using as a monitor is Digital. However I'm using a VGA cable on it. Best quality would be achieved if I got off my lazy rear, and attached a DVI Cable to it. It uses both.

VGA is Analog. A computer however puts out a digital video signal.
The computer has to convert the digital video signal to an Analog one. This slows the video signal down, and the quality is not as good.

Best to use a digital monitor. (Or a digital monitor WITH a digital cable. DVI Cable. Such as I need to do)

You are also using a PCI Express graphics card, NOT an AGP graphics card.

I'm wrong? OK.

In the meantime turn the computer off, unplug from power, and yank that AGP card out of the slot you put it in.

Tell me what expansion slot on the motherboard you put it in.

The Orange expansion slot on the motherboard, is a PCI-Express x16 slot. Uses a PCI Express graphics card -> ONLY

The white expansions slots are PCI.
Can use a PCI graphics card. CANNOT use an AGP graphics card.

My monitor samsung 2330 keeps saying check digital signal cable and I've put the cords all in the same way I had them before and now this screen keeps popping up


If you already check your connections and still no answer from what you're doing, do these steps:
  1. check for any beep codes
  2. remove and reinsert your RAM to another memory slot, if it works you have a problem with your RAM, you'll need to buy a new RAM that is compatible with your motherboard
  3. if you here a 1 short beep, that means it already start the booting sequence of your computer but you don't see any boot screen and still the out of range error. You have a defective graphic card.
  4. Is your monitor is a LCD type? if your answer is yes that means your monitor is not compatible with your old graphic card, buy a new graphic card that is compatible with your motherboard and to your LCD monitor. Because old graphic cards or onboard vga cannot hold much more pixels than newer ones that's why you have an out of range error

Monitor not recieving signal?


Hello,
If you are really sure that your monitor is working, then you would probably have to change your graphics card with a working one to see the results. That should solve your problem. If this does not solve your problem, then we are not dealing with a display problem here. In this case, you may have to check your memory.

All the best.

Installed the board, scren displays message no signal and stays black. no peeps or beeps. usb has power so do drives and signal leds


Check the cable between your monitor and computer. If this is a new install and you have added a graphics card, you will need to boot up once using the on-board VGA. Doing so will allow you to turn off the on-board VGA in the BIOS. Then you can shut down and move the monitor cable to the new graphics card and reboot.

HP motherboard dangling sounds when powered on


f you switched monitors already, your graphics card is probably the problem. I would suggest to temporarily switch this graphics card with another one. Maybe you can do that yousef, or know someone who can. Do nt try this without knowing what you're doing, it could damage your graphics card.
If you have done this, or are unable too, please post here what happened.

If the results you get with the other graphics card are:
1. You do get signal, but it is very low resolution. This is what is supposed to happen. It means you do get a good signal, the video drivers for that card just aren't installed yet. I'm afraid your graphics card is broken, and that you're going to need a new one.
2. You still don't get signal. This could be two things. Either your VGA cable is broken, or your motherboard is broken. I would suggest trying another ble. If that still doesn't work, you will have to purchase another motherboard.

I hope this helps,
Yannick.

Unexpectedly lost graphics, but theres a story to the issue.


You mentioned that you disabled the on-board graphics card using the device mamager.
You should disable the on-board video card in the BIOS.
Go to the BIOS config and disable the Video.

MSI k8ngm2-h mobo doesn't recognize PCI-E slot anymore!


Just a suggestion for you to try.
This is to check whether your PCI-E card is ok or not.
The BIOS setting option should be on PCI Express.
Take out the power cable from the hard disk - we don't want to mess around with window driver or system that might be the culprit.
Now turn on the computer, if ok, you should see some texts on your screen. This is a confirmation that your PCI-E card is still working. So then for you to work on your windows to solve the problem. Good luck.
