Question about EPoX EP-8VTAI Motherboard

Video quit...then everything

I was running a game with low video load. Quit the game and got black screen with only four horizontal broken white lines. Tried reboot, and didn't get video BIOS to load. I've tried installing previous card with same results. Also tried removing each RAM card with same results. I removed the CMOS battery and cleared CMOS with jumper. Now I get single long beep every five seconds or so. EP-8VTAI mobo with ASUS N7600GS Silent AGP. I would like to know what this beep code is and what the real problem is.

    My computer definitely passed the requirements. It is an older game that could easily run on the P3 system my parents had. Through research I am unable to find a repeating 1 in any Award beep code charts. My BIOS is Award 4.51 according to Epox.

    If that so its time to change your video card. As what you said that it pass all the requirements, the RAM, the video card, and processor so it can be the video card for sure.

P5PE-VM with Win7 has no display on PCI video cards-EVGA 2600 or EVGA gt 220. Both cards ran fine with Win XP. What do I need to do?

Hello here is the mainboards homepage:

Are you running 32 or 64 bit system ???

Make sure the video driver supports windows 7, 32 or 64 bit.

The video card can sure run fine on windows xp but not in windows 7 as it is a totaly different system.

The mainboard has a 1 x AGP 8X slot.

So now you maybe has to find a video card that supports windows 7

Try also to download a manual.

Good luck

How ca i format the pc

Try running the check disk utility instead of reformatting and reloading everything.

To run the check disk utility you will need a repair disc ora operating system disc. Put the disc in the cd drive and boot fromit. You want to get to the Dos Command Prompt (Black screen with whiteletters) and type the following command: chkdsk /r
Check disk will run well over an hour or two and you will notice thepercentages going from high to low, this is normal. Let it run tocompletion. Then reboot machine.

If check disk fails to solve your problem you might have to reinstall windows.Try doing a Repair Install that way you don't loose your data, documents,music, pictures, videos or programs.

In windows xp you get to the dos command prompt by selecting R for repair whenthe options appear.

In Vista and Windows 7 you want to get to the recoveryconsole and look down at the bottom of the window for the Dos Command.
If all fails and you want to reformat as your say, just reinstall windows, it will reformat and delete everything for you.

Mabee the hard drive has failed . try entering bios and see if the hard drive is recognised .If not try turning the computer off unplug it then reconnect the drive data cable and power cable
then re- start the computer and see if it is recognised. some models of older hard drives needed a driver installed during set up -- you usually have to put the driver on a floppy disc and hit the f6 button when prompted by windows set up to install third party drivers . I hope this helps

During the starup a black screen appears with white horizontal and vertical lines.....! I know my motherboard has gone bad, can i repair it myself? Thank you.

I wouldn't recommend trying to repair it yourself. I would recommend checking ebay, craiglist or kijiji for another one, usually fixing motherboards is more expensive than actually just buying a new one. Just with a quick search I found this..
Goodluck :)

When i cut the laptop on everything light up except screen

The problem is a damage to the MB by excessive heat produced by Nvidia GPU. The only way to fix this permanently is to take out the MB and reflow the GPU with heat. You can find a video on youtube how to do it. You must take out the piece of gel between GPU and cooling unit and replace it with copper bar or penny made prior 1983 - still made out of copper. Also clean the fan. Use heat transfer paste like arctic cool - not a glue, on both sides of the penny. Install win7. Win7 does not use the coprocessor and will help to ran the notebook cooler. Install speedFan 4.40 - free utility to see what the temp is of your GPU and CPU. If you did good job it will stay around 55C. If your HP notebook is still running check the temp. If the GPU is running 80C or more it will melt the connections on the MB and quit working sooner or later.

While playing game , game is jumpy , to jumpy to even shoot someone , how do I fix this ?

It's hard to answer this without knowing what game you're playing but if I get the information off the net right your computer is incapable of running any of the new games. It's slow, not much ram and poor video capabilities. A lot of the new games require 2 gigs of ram, a 750 meg video card and at least 2.4 megahertz of power to run excellent. What I see of that motherboard you posted under it's only capable of 1.2 megahertz and probably very little ram and an ancient PCI style video card which is about 8 years back in technology.

Black screen on boot on biostar mcp6p m2+

That board has a built in video card if I have the right info. If you are using an external video ie plug in card then you need to make sure the onboard video is disabled or that the plug in card is designated as the main video card. Not doing either of those will cause the black screen.

No video. Was working fine. Then just quit. When I attempt to boot windows XP, the is sound and the keyboard works. I am then able to shutdown via the keyboard. But there is no video. The is no video from...

If you are comfortable in opening your case and touching the motherboard you could do this, but since everything else works I do not believe the CMOS is the problem. You may have been infected with Malware. Try this, boot into SAFE MODE, go to control panel, system, hardware, device manager, display adapters then delete it. Perform oderly shutdown and upon rebooting Windows should want to reload a new driver. If you are not using a ATI video set, Windows would be able to load the driver or just use your supplied disk. Good luck.

MY SCREEN KEEP popping to black?it annoys me?

so is your screen like fading to black and back to bright when u do something? If it fading in and out try adjusting the monitor settings on the monitor itself. Whats happening is your monitor is trying to save energy so it dims. The setting is Luminance on most monitors

And by the way u cant reach a video capacity cause the memory dumps the info when it needs space to process more video.

No signal to screen

no motherboard is not dead ...

in motherboard there will be one IC (integrated circuit)called as video adapter IC ..
this IC will be situated near the AGP port if your motherboard needs graphics card if your motherboard has onboard video then it will be there near by the PCI slots ...

if this IC is gone or burnt you will not get the signals to the monitor ...

and if you are using the graphics card just have a check with the graphics card once there may also be some problem in the graphics card some IC might have burnt out in that ...

just once you remove the graphics card and insert it again and then try switching it on ...

if the video adapter IC is burnt out then you need to get replaced that by taking your motherboard to the motherboard technician ..

this will fix your problem ...

thank you
any doubts you can reply me
i am always here to assist you
