Question about SuperMicro X6DH8-G2 Dual Xeon/E7520/DDR2/SCSI/PCI-Express/EATX Motherboard (MX6DH8G2)

Powers on, but no video

Hi,

It's runs on Linux Fedor Core7.

The pc powers on, but no signal on monitor. I don't even see the initial booting up text scroll up on the monitor.

It's not a monitor issue, I checked with other working monitors.

Looking at the motherboard, I see that LEDs DA1 and DA2 are both on.


I have another working pc that is the exact same setup, when booting up the DA1 will come on, then off, then DA2 will come on, then off.

The location of DA1 and DA2 LEDs on the motherboard are near the sata0 and sata1 connectors. The LEDs are just to the right to the adaptec chip.(closer to the edge of the motherboard) .

I can't find anything on this on the manual of the motherboard.

I had nothing connected to the pcie/pcix slots. And, I unplugged all drives to debug. Still nothing!
Any clues, please!

Thanks.

    It's using the integrated video card. And, I don't have access to a stand alone video card to test that out.

E machine monitor not working. Replaced with newone. same results


There is no communication with the video card. Try re-seating the add-on card or checking BIOS for it to be enabled. You could also try adding a new card, and even testing the monitor on another computer. Lastly make sure the monitor is set to correct input like VGA or HDMI.

Pc switching on but lines on screen only


If you can't see anything - even the text from BIOS when it boots, I would suspect that it is probably the monitor. If the PC USED to boot fine, then suddenly started behaving this way it is very possibly either the monitor or the signal to the monitor.

You didn't say if the PC is a desktop or a laptop. If it is a laptop, try to find an external monitor to connect to. Of course, in most cases laptops require that you switch them to a dual monitor mode, which will be difficult if you don't see anything on the main monitor.

Is the a Windows machine? What version of the OS are you running? Have you made any changes to the system?

Also: be sure that if you are using an external monitor, the cable is seated fully and tightened down.

When i turn on it goes start to pc entering power saving mode


Are you sure it isn't the monitor entering powersave mode?
An unhooked monitor (especially flatscreen DELLs ) will go into powersave mode if it isn't getting a signal but is getting power.

First unplug and then replug your monitor. Both ends of the cord, the end in the back of the monitor (if it comes out at all) and the end that plugs into the computer.(unplug it from the wall first)

Reboot computer.

If that fails...(and you do have a video card)

Unplug everything from the computer, open the box, ground yourself by touching the metal frame of the computer case and reseat your video card....you may have to undo one screw to get it out.
DON'T drop the screw into the case!

Put it all back together and try again.

If that all fails Boot Windows (windows right?) into safe mode and change the power settings for the monitor...perhaps something got changed or broken by an update.

If that fails....

Get Linux.

Pc powers up no beep and no vid can't even check bios no monitor


Hi, Turn off the computer and open the side cover by removing two screws. If you have a video card remove it and clean the connectors with alcohol and also the memory card connectors. Re install it and install it back the side cover and turn the power that should work for you. Get back to us if this information helps you solve the problem. Good day...

Dell E153FP monitor won't display any video from system (Dell GX260). My e173FP monitor works fine. E153FP powers up, runs Self Test Feature Test fine, menus all seem OK. Tried Factory Reset... still no...


You probably have tried this, but make sure monitor is set to correct display... i.e., Analog or Digital

Also, try starting in safe mode and verify Monitor is able to handle the display settings resolution

The monitor shuts off. Turning the power off


the monitor is going into power saving mode ... it can happen if it is not receiving any signal from the pc ( pc is not running or booted properly, bad video cable connection monitor to pc) or the pc is itself in suspend/standby mode.

Pc wont read monitor


If you look at the monitor there will be an led light on the front that is always orange or yellow when the computer is off but still connected to the monitor. This led will turn green when the computer boots up, sometimes even showing a "no signal" display before boot. If you see the 'command line'  text during the boot process (video info, BIOS version, POST text, etc) then the monitor is being recognized by the computer. If that text goes away and the led goes back to orange then it is a driver or operating system problem. Pressing whatever key is prompted at the lower left of the display, if you have a display, like F1, F2, F10, Delete or whatever will get you to the setup program and all is good with the display/computer connection and a green light will stay on. If you never get that green led light then either the video card is bad or not seated properly

No any video signal from the video card


When you power on your computer do you hear any system beeps from the PC speaker? When the computer is turned on it will run through a system check and one of the things it checks for is the presence of a working video card. One beep typically means everything checked out ok and your graphics card is working and it will continue to boot. If you are getting past that initial test I would next look at the monitor and see if it can handle the signal that is being sent to it. Are you not getting any of the boot up text display?
