Question about Asrock K8Upgrade-VM800 Motherboard
Acer monitor will only accept a video signal on every other start up. Once up, it's fine until the next power down and then system needs to restarted twice before it boots.
I'm running an AMD K8Upgrade-VM800on an ASRock MB. I have tested the power supply, replaced the HD, Disabled onboard video and added a GeForce2 MX video card.
Same problem. I'm hestitant to flash the bios, but I suspect it to be either the Bios or the processor.
I am completely stumped.
If anything try updating the video card drivers. That's what it sounds like, or the monitor is going. The next time the monitor fails to start, just unplug from the input and put back in. If it starts you are looking at a bad power booster on the board. You can also try pluging in another monitor or try that monitor on a different machine. This way you can eliminate which is bad. I had flat panels and crt's go on me and they usually start by this symptom. It shouldn't be the BIOS, if it's been working right along, same with the processor, it either works or doesn't, it's a monitor scenario.
