Video I have this motherboard, and everytime I have had to move the computer, or disconnect the power, the video stops working for several hours to weeks on end. What is the problem? I've tested the monitor, and it works on every other computer I have tested. What could be the problem?

Re: Video

If you feel comfortable inside of a computer, open the case, take out and put back in the video card, making sure that it's seated firmly in the AGP or PCI slot. If there's no video card (onboard video), check to see if the connection on the motherboard is getting loose.

Other than that, check the cable at the back of the monitor, and the pins at the end of the cable. It's possible that a pin is bent/damaged in the connector, and the monitor only works when the cable is in the right position and you hold your breath and there's no wind....

Nv7 133r motherboard will not boot unless switched off and disconnected from mains for several hours. will only give single longer than normal beep, no video, beeps every 5 seconds

If you have multiple RAM sticks on your board, try to remove some of them and interchange, to rule out a faulty memory.
If you have an on board video card, remove any video extension cards and connect your monitor to the on board video card to rule out that as the problem maker.
If you have any other extension cards, remove them as well.

If all of that does not help, then there is either a problem with the processor or the motherboard itself, that is probably not possible to fix.

One more think I could think of is a faulty power supply. If you can get another one, try it with that.

Good luck
Hope this helps.

Upgraded power supply, upgraded to AMD 965 Quad core, Mother board stops at error C5, monitor blank during this. C5 error says reset video controller. HOW?

try this: 1. turn off the computer 2. disconnect the VGA connector (the cable from the monitor) 3. remove the video card from the motherboard 4. the motherboard has the on board video controller, connect your VGA monitor to that slot. 5. turn on the computer, I hope by now your monitor is ok ;-)

I attach my monitor and turn the machine on and I get a black screen. When I pull the monitor cable out of from the monitor connection on the motherboard I get a color display on the monitor. What is...

When you disconnect the monitor cable, the display you see is from the monitor itself. It's telling you that the monitor has power and is working, but that you don't have the cable connected to your computer. So the trouble is in your computer, which isn't sending anything to the monitor.

Your computer may not be starting up when you turn on the power. This is pretty common, and may be due to a bad power supply or system board. Or something may be wrong on one of the devices connected to the motherboard (one of the drives or a card plugged in to an expansion slot). You'll need to figure out what is keeping the computer from starting. The easiest way is to unplug all devices from the motherboard except for the power supply and try starting the computer. If the computer starts up you'll know that one of those parts you disconnected is at fault.

Another possibility is that the video card (integrated video on the motherboard in most computers, or a separate card) isn't working. The computer may be starting up and getting in to Windows, but you just never get any video to the monitor. If you are hearing all the sounds of a normal startup (disk drive activity and then finally whatever startup sound your Windows makes), then you need a new video card. If the board has integrated video you just need to install a new plug-in video card of whatever type fits the available slot on the board.

Good luck and thanks for using Fixya!

Worked perfectly until I put PC into storage for 5 week's holiday. Now no video. Upon switching it on, after short delay I hear a long pip followed by two shorter ones, and later, the normal startup...

Disconnect the AC power.
Physically remove the "add-on" video-card,
to force the motherboard to use the "integrated' video-card.
Connect the AC power,
and boot to see if any video is displayed.

Disconnect the AC power.
Temporarily disconnect the power-cables and data-cables
from the disk-drive, and the CD-drive.
Remove any other "add-in" cards (sound? TV tuner? network?)
If there's more than one stick of RAM, reduce it to one stick.

Connect the AC power,
and boot to see if any video is displayed in this "bare-bones" configuration.

Try the add-in video-card in another computer, just to confirm that it still works.

Hi! I have a pc with abit is7-e2 motherboard.. And when i start the pc a red led turns on the board... There is no picture on the screen. I already checked the video card but its working

Just how did you check the video card if you get no image on the screen?
Try another monitor with your computer. If you still get no image, then it's your video card or another component.
If your computer will not pass the POST (power on self test) then you will not get any video output.
Culprits can be the hard drive, the CD, the memory, the motherboard, or the CPU. I would disconnect everything but the CPU, memory, and video and try to start it to narrow the problem. But first, try another monitor.
I've even seen a bad power supply that seems to work keep the video from working.

Screen went blank, have yellow indicator on monitor, try to reboot, getting three beeps, nothing more.

One beep during startup is "good", but THREE is not good.

Three beeps means a hardware fault -- probably that the video-adapter on your computer has failed.

Connect the monitor to another desktop/laptop, to confirm that it still works.

Turn the computer off, and disconnect the power-cord.
Remove all the RAM, and then re-insert just one stick.
Reconnect the power, and try to boot.
If you still get THREE beeps, turn it off.
Disconnect the power-cord, and reinsert the remaining RAM sticks.

If you still have the problem, then it's time to replace the video-card on your computer. Take the computer to a computer-store, so that they can sell you a video-card that will be compatible with your motherboard.
Hopefully, if you buy the video-card from them, they will install it for a modest fee -- ask them.

Computer won't boot.

It is your powersupply, Change the power supply. It should solve the problem. it seems your power supply not giving enough power to the board.

Emachine won't boot. when first turned on, get 2 beeps, floating error "Self check, check your PC and signal cable, monitor is working" on black screen, fan runs fast and loud. machine not connected to...

I am an emachine specialist. These computer suffer with problem motherboards which often blow the power supply unit. Replacing the power supply on it's own does not solve the problem as the motherboard processor socket is the cause of the problem, the fault in turn blows the power supply. The same applies to all Advent and Medion computers sold via the high street stores.

Only the cpu fan turns on pl help

Check your RAM memory. Very often bad memory will cause the video to stop working. If you have more than one stick of memory try removing one of them or all but one if you have more than two. Be sure to power off your computer first and then remove the power cord from the power supply. There is usually still some power going to the motherboard even though it has been turned off. This will protect against damaging your memory while taking it out or putting it back in. Power on your machine and see if there is any change. If not, go through the steps above again and swap the first stick of memory with one of the ones you removed earlier. If there is still not any change then at least you know that it is not the memory causing the problem. (You must have at least one stick of memory in the computer for it to boot.) The next thing you might try is to swap out your video card with one that you know is working. If that does not help I would move next to the power supply. If you have a lot of devices installed in your computer (multiple CD/DVD drives, multiple hard drives, several USB powered devices, high-end video card(s), etc) you may be reaching the limits of your power supply capacity or your power supply may be going bad. It is possible for a machine to power on but not have enough power to run all of your devices.

Computer stopped working - I see a spark when I plug onto motherboard

the spark you see is a shorted power socket on the MOBO, the spark is shutting down the power supply for protection. You need a new board.
