New mobo - strange post error - no video

I have a new ma780g-ud3h and Atholon x2 7750. I am a systems engineer by trade. I do this stuff everyday. This one has ticked me off. I move to gigabyte after using asus for years. When I boot it up I get an error code (Monitor or graphics card problem). After trying all the tricks... different PS, booting it outside the case,HDMI, VGA, 1 chip, no chips, checking the CPU. I returned it and got ALL new stuff. Brought it home and it did exactly the same thing. I don't have a very capable VGA monitor but when I use it I get a whining noise as if there is a high res picture there. I currently use my HDMI tv for high res stuff. It doesn't work here though. I'm ready to go back to ASUS.

    Thanks for the response... I believe you're right about the monitor (VGA). Doesn't explain HDMI though. In any event... I can't get to the BIOS (which should be 640X480 right???? Since 2 mobo's did this there must be a way past it. I have subitted a ticket with gigabyte. No response yet. Any idea about how to get into the BIOS??? I have already shorted the jumper and removed the CMOS battery.

    I appreciate the offer for me to buy your premium service. However, I believe the manufacturer owes me something on this. If they do not respond to me today I will return the mobo and go back to ASUS

  • joe3949 May 18, 2009

    Thank you for the response. Agreed... I am out of ideas too. Since I have no video and it just keeps rebooting (I assume) I will not be able to flash the BIOS. Thanks though. I will post back if gigabyte gets back to me.

    I told everybody that I would resspond back once Gigabyte "helped" me. After typing to 4 or 5 different people with varying degrees of english skills... I am taking everything back and going with ASUS. It was a very long transcript of doing the same thing over and over. ASUS.... I'm back.

    Did you use the same hard drive for both systems? Try a different hard drive.

    My pc kept rebooting...the power on button was stuck.

    Just a "stab in the dark" so to say.

    If you're locked out of BIOS, I'd try flashing it. Other than that, really out of ideas. Below is a link for a BIOS flash utility for Gigabyte.


    p.s. I havn't posted anything as a solution because quite honestly, I don't have a solution, just offering ideas to help you.

    Just spitballing here but could it be the refresh rate is too much for the monitor? Best of luck, this one's a real head scratcher.

I have a Soya SY-7VCA mobo that hasn't been used for about 6 years. Upon bootup, I received a CMOS checksum error message, but was still able to load a copy of Windows 98SE that I had on floppy. After...

Probably your BIOS battery, replace that and setup you BIOS again and it should be fine. BIOS batteries look like little round watch batteries.

Any more questions just let me know.

Just ordered this board and another geforce 9500gt problem is i dont think i will be able to run both the video cards in this mobo i was reading manuall and it says an ati hybrid? GA-890GPA-UD3H is mobo...

It will run just fine, just make sure it's configured correctly in the BIOS - you will have to manually disable the onboard video card and activate the SLI configuration ; don't forget to install the bridge.

Asus P5n32 Sli Premium

There is a couple of things you can do to troubleshoot this.
If there is an on-board VGA (video) port on the back, try that.
Clear the CMOS. On that spec board there should be a coloured plastic jumper next to or near the motherboard battery like this >>>>>
If there is no jumper then remove the power cord from the back and take the motherboard battery out for half an hour then replace and see if you get a post screen.
If it still suffers from the same symptoms then there could be micro fissures between solder points on the motherboard as Intel's tend to run fairly hot.
This means you have to re-float the motherboard and is a last resort repair.
If you need anymore help or advice please post back.

Good luck.

Newly built system will not power up!

It seems like you have bad MOBO. I recently ordered all the stuff to build 2 new systems. Built the first one, no power, just like yours. Moved everything to the 2nd MOBO, everything worked. I did a RMA on the DOA MOBO. Got the new one and it fired right up. Sometimes you just get bad stuff.

No beep,No Display on my monitor,only CPU heatsink fan is moving

You motherboard has onboard video. It's possible it needs to be disabled and the option changed to use the pci or pci-express slot for the Ati card you installed. Since you have no post error beeps this is the best place to start. Also I had built a system not to long ago and had a similar problem. Resetting the cmos on the motherboard (usually a pin combo) solved the issue.

Start by hooking up your vga cable to the onboard video.

Hope this helps.

Not posting

Maybe a silly question to ask; but did you connect the processor power lead, as unlike some processors this needs a seperate supply.
