Question about Jetway K8M8MS Motherboard

1 Answer

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?

    I checked all that. The onboard video is firmly connected, the monitor cables are good (the monitor works every time with my other systems) and there hasn't been much of an explaination for the issues i'm running into. I have taken out the processor and replaced it again, checking all the pins there, and then the system started running. But I have to do that every time I unplug it (i'm moving it out of my testing area and to my desk) and it's rather difficult that way. I'm worried that it'll happen in a power outage as well.

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....

When i on my desktop it show blue screen and says no signal analog

That means that the monitor is not getting a signal from the computer. There are several possible issues involved. 1) Make sure that the computer tower is on. 2) Check that the video cable is connected to the active port on the desktop. (Computers often have video connections on the motherboard and an added video card. The motherboard connection is disabled when the video card is active. Similarly if there are several ports (VGA, DVI, HDMI, Display port) only one may be active.) 3) Try a new video cable (if possible) and one of the other video ports (again if possible). 4) Try connecting a different monitor to the computer or connecting this monitor to another computer.

Open up the computer and check if the card requires a separate power connection to the power supply. Make sure it is plugged in. Do the fans in the computer spin up?

If a second monitor doesn't work or the monitor works on another computer, then the problem is with the video adapter on the computer, the power supply or the power switch. Please add a comment with more information about the type of desktop and the current video graphics adapter (on the motherboard or separate card). I will provide additional help if possible.

(who has a computer in the company that needed a new monitor (power supply failed) a few months ago and lost the fan on the video card last week. Without the fan, the card overheated and shut down. Thus no signal to the monitor.)

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 ;-)

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.

Monitor goes blank.

Did you swap the monitors to see if the problem follows or stays at the same video output port since you have dual monitors set up? Need verify before opening up the monitor.

My hp vs19d power button blinks on and off slowly. what does it mean? if i let the computer sit for say 3 hours the monitor will stay blank. even after moving the mouse to wake things up

the monitor is in sleep mode ... have you tried hitting the keyboard Space bar?

if you disconnect the video cable from the pc does it display ( video disconnected) ? if it does it then is probably the sleep issue

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.
