Question about EliteGroup (ECS 915PL-A2) Motherboard
Hey everyone. I'm having a problem with my EliteGroup 915PL-A2 Motherboard... I'm turning on my computer, and I have the graphics card hooked up, and the Monitor is plugged in, but I'm not getting a picture... Can anyone help me?
Ok. This may not have anything to do with your video card at all, as people keep suggesting.
There are two RAM slots on this board. How many sticks of memory are you using, what are the specs on them? And if you are using two, are they dual channel?
This board, I BELIEVE, requires dual channel memory. If you are using two different make in chips, or two different sizes, it may not boot. Also, since it requires dual channel memory, if you're only using one stick, you may have it in the wrong one (some ECS boards are like this). If that's the case, try switching the single stick to the other slot and see if it boots up then.

I have the same problem but on a PT880PRO-A, no post, no video, fans working, leds light up, no beep sounds even with out ram, tested psu and evreything else with another pc and works, all testted but not the motherboard, bios batery changed, tryed diferent video cards that do work, the last thing is a dead bios, so i'am thinking about a hot flash to the bios chip, as a last resource, before i buy a new motherboard.
did i mention there is no onboard video.

I realize the post is old but I have the same mobo. The deal is that there are two PCIe slots on the board that can allow for crossfire connections.with Scalable D.G.E. The most obvious solution is to ensure you have the video card in the slot closest to the cpu. The other responders seemed to be unaware of the fact as well that there is no onboard video. Also ensure you have the second power connection to the motherboard plugged in. It is near the PCI slots. Without it the mobo may be unstable. There is also caution about using a PSU with 20 rather 24 pin connection, even though they provide the option. Hey this post may be to late to help you, but there always a newbie around every corner. Happy Computing!

First off, this MB does not have an onboard video/graphics card. SO there is nothing to disable in the bios.
However, no one has mentioned what video or graphics card they have tried to install. OK xxmaddgoodxx did mention a nVIDIA 7600gt, but failed to state whether it was AGP or PCIe and what connectors the card supports. If either of the users having problems with this MB are trying to install an older video or graphics card it is not going to work. This MB uses a PCIe interface for video, and depending on the video card, you will have either a 24 pin DVI-I port and/or an S-Video/TV-Out port and/or a standard VGA port.
I hope this helps to clear up any confusion.
