Re: trying to fix old computer

Disconnect the drive and see if your video card works. If not, something else is broken. Could be the video card, the motherboard, processor or power supply. It is possible for a power supply to fail in such a way that it destroys everything connected to it. If that works, you have made some mistake hooking up the hard drive or it is badly damaged. Hard drives have jumpers that must be set correctly to indicate whether it is a master (1st drive on the ribbon cable) or slave (2nd drive on the ribbon cable). The ribbon cable must be correctly oriented with the red strip going to pin 1 (pin 1 should be marked in very, very small print on the drive's connector).

Can't install windows on FSB 800 motherboard its showing no hard disk installed in your computer but showing in the bios kindly help

If you are installing XP on a SATA hard drive then -

The problem is that XP installation CD does not have a SATA driver, unless you have a SATA drive on a disk etc. and can install the driver when XP asks for a hard drive driver then, XP cannot detect the hard disk and therefore won't install XP. The FIX. Go into the BIOS and disable the SATA drive (enable IDE emulation), this will make XP think it is a IDE/PATA hard disk. Then you can install XP normally. When Windows has been installed then install all the device drivers (including the SATA driver), then shut down and boot up and got into the BIOS and enable the SATA drive.

I installed everything the CPU, RAM, and everything else. Connected all switches at the right places and the BIOS is on normal operation. I turn on the computer and its a blank screen nothing shows up....

ok, looking at the specifications All I can recommend is the following. double check the Video card to make sure it is properly seated and that it does not exceed the capabilities of the motherboard. 2 Disconnect everything from the motherboard except the CPU and case wiring/power supply and turn the computer on. If the system completes the post test, you will hear at least 1 beep and should hear several for the video card not being connected, then start installing components 1 at a time till you find the one causing the problem. Start with the Video card and then the ram as these are most likely where your problem is unless you have a faulty power supply which will be the problem if you don't get a completed post with nothing else connected.

I bought Foxconn 755A01-6EKRS Motherboard for my HP pc replacement. i install my AGP VsionTek x1300 graphic card and turn it on and nothing show up on screen...then i put the graphic card back to my old HP...

Your new Foxconn motherboard Primary Graphics Adapter settings in set to onboard vga that is why there is no display in your monitor. Do not install yet your agp video card. Use first the onboard vga of the motherboard.
Power up your computer and go to the BIOS settings. Locate in bios about the Primary Graphics Adapter settings and then select AGP. Save changes and the exit. Turn off your computer and now install the agp video card.

Newly built computer, nothing showing on the monitor

Is there a video output anywhere else on the back of the computer besides the one from the card itself that you are plugged into?
If so try it.If it works, then U may have to disable it in the BIOS in order for the new video card to work.
Thats called onboard video.Switch it to AGP/PCI or whatever other mode it offers.Another thing is to be sure that the card you have will even work on the system you have. Look up the system or motherboard and see if that particular card is equal to or less than the maximum speed of your motherboard.

Video card

actually your computer is working on the onboard video adapter.

1. connect first the monitor to the onboard video card.( do not remove the connected geforce video card.)
2. switch on the computer and press "F2" on new model computer, "Delete" on old model computer.
so that you can enter to bios setup.
3. if bios setup is open; try to find the "AGP bridge configuration"
(some other bios AGP B C is in chipset) by arrow up,down,side left and right) enter.
4. Find " primary graphics adapter"
5. In there, select : If Video card is "pci" connected ; select "pci"
If Video card is "AGP" connected ; select "AGP"
6. press F10 to save and exit the setup.
7. after saving the configuration, disconnect power cord and transfer the monitor to the video card (Gforce). and then connect the ac power cord and then start. or switch on the computer.

Note: be sure to install the drivers of your GFORCE for optimum performance of the card.

hope this help.

My pc doesn't boot up

Did you have onboard video before? What is the video card? AGP8x, AGP4x, PCIe? If you had onboard video, you'll need to change the settings in the BIOS and disable the onboard video. You'll have to plug in at the onboard to access the BIOS.

No video signal from onboard, agp, or pci cards

Prophitinc, I'll try to help. First off a real basic question, the specs I have say this board has a built in video adaptor. Did you make sure that the BIOS was configured use the plug in card? Some BIOS's can do this on their own but I would check anyway. -The first thing I would do is to check each screw, card, connector and component you installed to make sure nothings being shorted out or is improperly connected. Common occurrences are screws touching capacitor or other component leads. -Check the power connectors to make sure everything is connected correctly and that all the contacts are still mounted in the plastic connector correctly. -Check the output on your power supply and verify it?s rated for your motherboard. -Make sure the motherboard is correctly grounded to the chassis per your instructions. Typically the mounting screws touch a grounding plane on the motherboard and in turn ground that to the chassis. If your using plastic mounting studs that might be a problem. Make this as basic a machine as possible: remove any add in cards, use the built-in video (make sure you enable it via the BIOS), unplug mice, remove all USB components, reduce the size of your memory (RAM) and if you have multiple hard drives remove all except your boot drive. If you have on try a basic PS2 style keyboard you know works. Restart, does anything change? If this doesn't result in some changes then some more information is necessary. In light of your situation I?ll be checking back for another couple of hours: -Are all of these parts from the old machine, IE do we know they all work? -Any beeping or noise coming from the machine during booting except fans? -You say it behaves as if it were booting; what about hard drive activity? How long is it running? -What exactly were the conditions in which the last board was damaged? Was it plugged in and powered up?
