How do I get a picture on my monitor?

I just purchased an ECS915pl-A2 motherboard. Now I know I should have checked for a monitor connection. But, I never thought that someone would make such an item. Anyway, How do I get a picture on my monitor? I have a pc video card. But, Of course I need video to set up everything. Any help would be appreciated. This is my third build.

Re: How do I get a picture on my monitor?

First of all, what kind of video card is it that you're trying to use?

Also, are you using one or two sticks of RAM, and what are the specs on them (or it, if only one)?

The card runs my other pc. I can run all the newer games with it. Maybe the board is bad. Thanks for helping. Mike

Hook a spare monitor to the video output, usually on the back. If you get a picture it means the inverter board is bad, or the backlight behind the LCD display, check to make sure the round video cable is plugged into the motherboard. But, if the symptom is the same for both screens, the problem is the Video Graphics Card normally built into the motherboard. If the connector to the LCD is damaged that would explain the issue of no video.

Cpu lead lights on but no display in monitor

check the RAM condition, For that remove the RAM from mother board and clean the two side of RAM contact terminals wiping with the eraser and insert it again into the mother board.

if you have using more than one ram just remove both the RAMs reinsert one by one after cleaning the RAMs one by one .

ECS 755 A2 motherboard problems

Make sure you have the correct front panel header connected correctly to the case wires. Open you're manual to page 12 under the English section. There you'll find a picture of the front panel header & how to connect the case's LED's to the motherboard.
If you no longer have the manual you can download it from ECS at this link.
Chances are you may have the wire's connect backwards. (Positive + connected to the negative - ECT).
Example, pin 1 is the + for hard disk drive & pin 3 is - for the hard disk drive. Cases vary on wire colors, normally if each connector has a common colored wire (solid color) that common wire would be the negative. Stripped wires are negative. Other cases use white colored wires as negative & colored wires as positive. As far as you not receiving any display. Try removing the AGP card & clean the copper contacts. Clean with alcohol.
Place a couple drops onto a cotton swab & clean the copper, both sides. Blow out the AGP slot with canned air. Re-check all connections, power & data cables before closing the case. Power on the system & check the front led's for operation.
If you still fail to get display, re-check the connection from the monitor to the case. Try you're monitor on another system. If good than you're video card could be bad. You're motherboard can run an 8x/4x speed AGP 1.5volt (only) graphics card.

Good luck zeratu_l !

915PL-A2: no post, no beep, no keyboard lights

You may have a short between the board & the case. (check it).
Even if this means removing the board. That clicking you hear through the speakers suggest a short. Make sure your using (Stand offs) which keeps your board off the case's mounting surface. Check the back plate so the tabs are touching the ports comming off the board for good ground.
Double check the you have fully connected both the main power ATX_ 20 pin power connector & the auxiliary 4-pin power
connector. pg. 10. Connecting 20/24-pin power cable Remove & re-seat. If your PSU has a 20 pin connector make sure you connect the cable from the correct end.
Without POST you will not get video to load. Reset your bios
pg. 9 in your manual. Re-enter your bios and setup the bios settings for your board.

Let me know if this helps you reach POST?
Good luck!

Well you really need to get a manual for that. Check the website and download the manual with that model, for sure there is one.

I guess you have connected all the connectors there incorrectly so better look for a manual.
