MP915-X Video Output

Hello, I do not have a 945-X but the 915-X looks just like it. I seem to have a problem with my video card. When I plug it into a monitor and boot it up, the light turns on, I hear the fan spin, but I cannot get video on the monitor. Furthermore, whenever I try to insert a disk into the machine, it does not accept it. Can anyone help me? I hear the HDD spinning, and everything seems to check out.

My CPU is working but my monitor is not getting any signal


Welcome to Fixya!

OK, firstly you will need to understand the following:

If you are using a onboard video adapter, the problem might be with the motherboard. If you are using an external video adapter, the problem might be with the graphics card. there is a couple of things we can do to test this.

Firstly try another display monitor. If the problem still persists, be sure that all the cables are plugged in correctly onto the motherboard(You will need to open the case to do this).

If you are using a onboard video chip the problem is most likely with the motherboard itself. You will need to take the computer to an repair store to track down the problem.

If you are using an external video adapter, you can try plugging it into another computer to test the card. If the problem still persists, it is the graphics card which is done.

Please feel free to let me know if you have any further questions.

Kind regards

The term motherboard is a bit outdated in respect to what a "motherboard" actually does noways, in the early days the motherboard was a series of PCB sockets that various cards would plug into, and originally the motherboard had very little else on it. these PCB would be the active components and would contain the CPU, video cards, I/O (input output) cards to connect to drives etc, memory cards would all be separate circuit boards that plugged into the motherboard hence its name it was kind of a parent device to all the cards that did the work, a bit like a windows folder, doesn't do anything but contain the files that are actively important. As time has progressed , things got smaller and essential components to a computer system began to get integrated into the motherboard to ensure compatibility and to streamline interoperability.
First things to be integrated were I/O devices such as coms ports, drive controllers and of course the CPU board however the CPU has nearly always been interchangeable although during the times of 286 & 386 occasionally they would be hardwired onto the board. Then came integrated video and audio as standard practices not as technology moved on, obviously they were integrated where needed much earlier for example in the instances of laptops and SFF devices.

as a result of this progress the correct term should be "System Board" but nostalgia a familiarity breeds so we still term them "Mother Boards"

Since installing a GeForce 8400 gs video card, my monitor has had faint flickering lines running across it. They're horizontal if on my native resolution(1440x900) and diagonal if I swap to something...

Sounds like you need to update your driver software, which can be found here: If that doesn't help, then it seems like you have a faulty video card, sorry about that...

I hope this helps!

As i turn on my pc, i hear 1long and 2short beep..and the light of the monitor power is blinking..what could be the problem? Hope that you can help me..TNX

The beep code you are getting Indicates a video error has occurred and the BIOS cannot initialize the video screen to display any additional information. Plan English - you have a bad video card or port. If your video output is on a PCI card, replace the card. If it's on the board, you will need to replace your motherboard.

Good Luck

I need step by step instructions on how to disable my onboard video without being able to see the screen for example "hit f2 to go into bios press the left arrow 3 times hit enter press down 2 times...


Because I don't know the BIOS version I can't walk you through the steps of disabling the on-board video. However you could try resetting the CMOS.

Remove the power cord from the back of the machine and install your new video card in the slot. Look for the CMOS battery which looks like this >>>

Remove this battery for 20 minutes while periodically pressing the on/off button to de-spell any residual power from the motherboard.
After 20 minutes is up put the battery back in and plug in the power cord. Start the computer and it should now auto detect the video card and you should see info on the screen.
Remember that you will have to set the date and time as these are reset.

My mainboad fail to boot. I've checked the ram, power supply and even the procesor:(. i don't have video signal ...

are you using onboard video or a card? If onboard look in your bios and make sure it is turned ON sometimes the default is off. If you are using a aftermarket video card you may need to use the onbaord to get to your desktop so you can load the drivers for the card then switch your video cable after you shutdown the computer and then try restarting.

The second PCI-e slot doesn't seem to work.

Did you check your BIOS to be sure that both PCI-E slots are enabled? If so, then did your check the documentation that came with your video cards to see if there's any setting your have to make\change in order to run the cards in SLI? The User's Manual for the motherboard may tell you if BIOS settings have to be change for running in SLI.

Ideq graphic card

The 200N has,
Nvidia Nforce chipset
Nvidia Geforce 4 mx integrated graphics with dual output

But I'll need to know your model # to get a better idea.

Alternatively, you could just open the thing up and look. If the video card is in the video card slot, you could just read the model #, etc.

If it's integrated, then look at the motherboard for a model #, etc and let us know. Those are fairly easy to find, and sometimes come bundled with the chipset drivers already.

Let me know!

Intel 865G drivers

Have you tried downloading the newest most up-to-date drivers availiable? If not I would try that first.

If that fails to work, I would check and see if there are any bios updates as the video card is part of the motherboard. However, I would think that since it works without the drivers, it would be a driver issue, not bios. When you have the drivers installed, does the video show up while booting and then fail in Windows?

You may also be hitting a range or resolution that is not supported by your TV. That being said, you could check your TVs owner manual for supported modes. If you do not have your owners manual, try setting the video card at some different resolutions with a monitor, shut down, plug back into the tv, and then restart the computer. If you find one that works, great!

Monitor Problem

Well assuming you used the same video cable when you tested the monitor on the Asus PC you?re left with: - Physical problem with the Asus video card. - Asus video card configuration problem. - BIOS configuration problem - Possibly a problem with the DVI/VGA adaptor depending on the answer below. A couple of questions about the Asus before we start: - I?m not sure I understand how the DVI/VGA converter figures into this. Is your cable coming off the monitor DVI thus you need it to plug into the Asus VGA connector? If yes who is the manufacturer of the device and what model do you have? - Has the Asus worked in the past with another monitor or is this new? - What is its history/configuration?
