Video cards do not process sound, so sound will not come through an HDMI cord that is connected to a PCI video card, you will need a seperate sound wire plugged into your sound card or motherboard to connect to your monitor or speakers. I hope this helps!
Try installing the Vista video driver from the MSI WEB site, it may work but you may not have all the functions.
You can download the drivers from MSI WEB support site,select your model motherboard to download :-
check the bios, which is at the beginning when you first turn on the pc and you press the delete or F1 key at a certain time to enter cmos, or bios. once in the 'bios ensure that the primary video card option is indeed your actual card ie. that if you have a onboard card you have onboard selected or agp for agp and pciexpress for pci express. If this still does not help then, perhaps remove the battery from the mother board and reset bios...***make a note of all the settings in bios first because if you did not personally build the pc then changing settings could have adverse reactions....
most times if a pc was working and lightning did not kill it, and it was not mistreated like with water or beaten I can resurect any system but I start at the beginning, without anything on the system then add things starting with HD then cdrom, then OS and vid card...then more RAM....
bad video card memory. try to change the video card. if it's built-in to the motherboard then it's a shared memory, disable it in the bios and put in a new video card. check if PCI, AGP or PCIexpress type of card. if problem persists, check also the memory card. hope this helps.
Plug a PCI VGA card into one of the PCI slots on your motherboard and connect your monitor signal cable to this add-on PCI VGA card and turn on your system . If your monitor shows the usual startup screen then you continue booting your comp and let the OS load , thereafter you BACKUP your DATA . Use a PCI VGA card from TRIDENT or S3 etc., so that your OS will use built drivers to display at 256 , 16 bit or 24 bit colour depth . These motherboards have problems around the GMCH or the Northbridge chip which has Graphics & Memory Control integrated . The refresh signal to your monitor does not indicate proper working of these GMCH . The memory of your comp needs attention and a check .
If you are using the on-board (integrated video), S3 Graphics Chrome9 HC Integrated Graphics core. Than check you're video cable, video cable connection. Try another monitor. If all check out ok than the MSI integrated video is defective. Suggest you install a PCI-E video card.
If you are using a PCI-E card, try removing it. Clean the copper contacts using a cotton swab & alcohol. (Let it dry) Than reseat the PCI-E card.
Try booting again.
