Monitor says no video signal, not even from the onboard card. Do I need to get the DVI Graphics-SI card? I didn't get one with this refurbished board. I have tried PCI and PCI Express cards.

1) Monitor plugged into the VGA connector on the motherboard, (Rear Panel), you should get a display.
This is with the proper settings in BIOS.

Reset BIOS back to the factory default settings, and clear CMOS Error Codes.

Unplug the computer from power. (Monitor plugged into VGA connector on motherboard. No graphics card installed)
Press the Power On button in, and hold it in for a count of 5 seconds. (Count 1001, 1002, 1003, etc.)
Let go of the Power On button.
Do this procedure 2 more times.

Plug the computer back into power, wait 1 minute, turn the computer on.

If you get OnBoard graphics now is the time to install the drivers for the graphics card.
Then close all windows, turn the computer off, unplug from power.
OBSERVE Anti-Static Precautions and physically install the graphics card.

Still no?
Time to enter BIOS Setup, and see what graphics settings you have.
(When the post screen comes up press the F2 key)

On the main page use the Right Arrow key to highlight - Advanced - at the top of the screen.
Press the Enter key.

Use the Down Arrow key to highlight - Chipset Configuration
Press the Enter key.

Initiate Graphics Driver should have - PCIE - to the right of it.
This stands for PCI Express. This is the factory default setting.

Internal Graphics Mode Select should have - Auto - to the right of it.
With it set to Auto;
The OnBoard graphics will be automatically disabled when a graphics card is installed.
The OnBoard graphics will be enabled when a graphics card is Not installed.

This is the download page from AsRock Support, for the User Manual for the AsRock ConRoe 945G DVI motherboard,

On this page click on Click Here to the right of User Manual, after you have chosen what country that is nearest yours.
Allow time for the PDF file to download. (Sometimes up to 30 seconds, and additional time may be needed to fully download the file)

I would also like to know what Power Supply you're using, and if you are sure beyond a doubt that it is a Good unit.

Integrated Visual (VGA).. Not sending signal

One never knows what settings the manufacture set the board to. So clear your bios. See the page 1-16 in your manual. Doing this should reset the bios to default settings. The onboard VGA graphics controller should send video to your monitor. If you still don't receive display the problem is with the bios or the graphics controller. Your board is no longer warranted. However you can buy an updated bios chip from Asus. Call 812-282-2787 M-F 8:00AM-5:00PM. Have your serial number ready. You'll find that number on a sticker over the LPT port. I already went to Asus online estore to see if they had a new bios but no such luck;

Good luck!

Adding a video card and get no output

Look in the motherboards manual for info about installing graphics cards, see if it needs jumpers. Plus make sure you plugged the monitors vga or dvi on the right place (VGA or DVI port ON the graphics card, NOT on the old vga port you used to plug your monitor before )

See if it works otherwise tell me..

Display problem

Hi there
try going into the bios settings and disable the on board graphics and change it to PCI or PCI Express.
You may have to plug the monitor into the on-board VGA port to do this, once done shut the computer down and change graphics port, then restart the pc, your problem should now be solved

Good luck and kind regards

Motherboard installation

Hello mecompe,

If you installed an AGP graphics card before your fist boot of the system, you will not receive display. By default the onboard graphics is set to boot display. (If this is the case, remove the AGP graphics card & boot the system). The Asus P4SGX-MX can only use a 4x AGP 1.5volt (only) card.

There is an order of sequences to perform before installing/ adding an AGP graphics card on to the board when the board also uses an integrated graphics card.
First, shut down the system & unplug the power supply from the PC. Connect your monitor to the VGA port at the rear of the board. Remove the AGP card. Re-connect the power supply & boot the system. You should have display? Re-boot the system. As the system starts up press the delete key on the keyboard every 2 seconds. The bios main menu will load. (Open your manual). Go to
section 2.4.3, page 2-20 under Advanced, PCI configuration. Set Primary VGA bios to
[AGP VGA Card]. Save the bios & exit. The system will auto restart. Press & hold the power on/ off button on the PC case until the system shuts off. Unplug the power cord from the PC. Insert the AGP card into the AGP slot. Connect your monitor to the AGP card.
Check all internal data & power cables, (Incase something came loose). Re-connect the power cord & boot the system. You should have display! Install your video software.
If your using the integrated VGA PCI graphics card, go over the bios settings page 2-18 & 2-20.

Need the Asus manual? Click this link;

To view the manual you'll also need Adobe PDF reader, click this next link for Adobe.

(The green led (light), means standby. The board is receiving 5volts DC.

If you still do not have display just let me know.
Good luck mecompe!

Asus p4p800s.x motherboard drivers

Hi bernard_in_c, you can download the audio & VGA software directly from Asus. Click on the link below. Choose your operating system from the pop-up window than click search. The driver download page will open: An Asus pop-up window will open & you must choose your operating system from the dropdown menu. Than click the Search button.

Click the + sign next to the device you want to download. With the Asus P4P800S-X motherboard there is not a separate VGA driver. (The VGA graphics card is a PCI VGA integrated card).
The VGA driver is part of the chipset software. Open the + sign next to Other. Download, Intel(R) Chipset Software Installation Utility for Windows.
By installing the chipset driver software (In a running system of windows), it will over-write all chipset drivers within your system. It is possible your windows may become wacky. Normally the chipset driver software is installed right after installing windows. (A fresh install).
Make sure you have the bios settings set correctly for the VGA/PCI. Open your manual to page 2-18 & set up per page 2-19. Go to Graphic adapter priority set this to, [PCI/AGP]. Next set the amount of system memory you want the graphics card to use. At the bottom of page 2-16, leave AGP/PCI frequency set to, [Auto].

If you run into any troubles, just post them here.
Good luck bernard_in_c!
