Question about EliteGroup (ECS 915PL-A2) Motherboard

3 Answers

No Video! I have just recently bought the same motherboard (915PL-A2). There is NO onboard graphics. I was using and older PCIe card and also a new 8800. The computer boots fine, but it produces no picture. I have tried the RAM in each slot and still no picture. I have also tried both VGA and DVI on two different monitors. This motherboard has been nothing but a pain...please help!

Re: No Video!

Have you tried a CMOS reset (sorry if this seems obvious, but I'm just making sure)?

How to boot on motherboard VGA port when I removed PCIe video card

In the BIOS there is an option to use onboard graphics only, PCIe graphics only or either. You would need to change that option.

2 video card detected. onboard card are desable. PCIe card EN210GT. card detected first EN210 second 6150se MB MSI-7309 K9N6SGM-V

use your PCIE card to boot-up from CMOS, then check your onboard vga, try to configure it by 1st boot is your onboard, if that wont work then maybe your onboard vga was already damaged, better to use pcie video card rather than an onboard because it lets you consume the whole amount of your memory unlike the onboard card..

I have DG965SS mother board and I am about to buy video card PCI-E , what I need to do to have this card working and not using the on-board craphic ?

When you already purchased a new PCIE card for it what you need to do is to just plug the video card to the mother and then power it on and computer will automatically disable the onboard video card and then once computer is up run the setup disc for the new video card and install all the software for it and you;re ready to go now.

Hi ,i just wanted to know if the intel g41rq motherboard is compatible with the gts250 nvidia graphic card? since the system is kicking me out from most of the games such as call of duty etc...

Yes, it will work, just at the rated speed of the PCI-e 16x slot.
And as long as you have a power supply capable of using the card.

Capacity Per lane:
PCIe v1.x (your motherboard ): 250 MB/s
PCIe v2.x:(nvidia gts250 card): 500 MB/s

And keep in mind:
- the onboard graphic card will be disabled when installing a pcie card.
- the onboard cared uses a vga connector and gtx250 uses dvi

Graphics card compatibility

That mobo is here"

It says it has a PCIe x16 slot, so really good graphics cards running on PCIe x16 will work on it.

This is a list of the PCI express x16 cards you can buy:

Generally the more they cost the better the performance but that is another story =)

If you wanna to hit me up with your full PC specs of CPU, RAM, Windows version, etc, i could recommend cards for certain games.

It also has PCI so older and less powerful PCI cards can likely be used.

Video Card Chnage

Hi Rick, you need to disable the onboard video from within you're bios. Please go to page 28 in you're manual. This will show you how to enter the bios menu. Once there go to page 26, where you will find. Onboard GPU (Enable If No Ext GPU) set this to Disable. Save & exit you're bios. You're system will auto restart. Once windows has finished loading, install the driver software for you're PCIE card. Suggest you check for updated driver software for you're PCIE video card.

If I can help you further, feel free to post.
Suggestions & comments welcomed.

I'm not getting a picture when I turn on the computer.

Ok. This may not have anything to do with your video card at all, as people keep suggesting.

There are two RAM slots on this board. How many sticks of memory are you using, what are the specs on them? And if you are using two, are they dual channel?

This board, I BELIEVE, requires dual channel memory. If you are using two different make in chips, or two different sizes, it may not boot. Also, since it requires dual channel memory, if you're only using one stick, you may have it in the wrong one (some ECS boards are like this). If that's the case, try switching the single stick to the other slot and see if it boots up then.

My pc doesn't boot up

Did you have onboard video before? What is the video card? AGP8x, AGP4x, PCIe? If you had onboard video, you'll need to change the settings in the BIOS and disable the onboard video. You'll have to plug in at the onboard to access the BIOS.
