Re: motherboard

I had the same problem,

Re: motherboard

Make sure that it is enabled in the BIOS. Check VGA cord for bent pins.

Onboard sound lost after video card installation

If your PC had an onboard video card before this, you may want to go in and make sure you have disabled it in the BIOS. This has happened to me before.

No video on monitor. Powers up, looks like everything should work but nothing on the screen. The Geeks at Geek Squad say it's a bad motherboard.

Remember before you attempt this there must be no power going to the computer.Do you have a onboard video or a video card installed.If you do,where is the monitor pluged in?on the onboard or the installed card.If you have onboard remove the other card.See if you get video.If not check the memory.

Don't have any video everything is never been used have three different vid cards and nothing comes on but the tower i don't get any video no matter what card i put in it.

Turn the computer off, and disconnect the AC power.

If the motherboard has an "integrated" video-adapter, connect one monitor to its VGA port, and connect another monitor to the VGA port on the add-in video-card, and turn the computer on, and watch both monitors, to see which one becomes "primary" and which one becomes the "secondary" monitor.

Reboot, and enter BIOS SETUP, and "disable" the "onboard" video-adapter, then "save and exit" and reboot. Now, which monitor stays "dark" and which monitor is "primary" ???

How to turn off the builtin video on QDI Winnex 1E motherboard?

Check your BIOS - there should be a setting in there to disable the onboard video. You shouldn't need to use a jumper to disable this.

I have a L7vmm3 motherboard - everything is

If you have onboard video disabled in BIOS, then the driver can't find the video chip.

Enable onboard video in Bios and you should then be able to install driver.

I took my pc apart last night to do some kabinett mods to my antec 900. and put everything back togheter and startet up, everything seems to work but i dont get no picture on my screen, it says no signal...

"No signal input" means that the signal is not making it from your video card to the monitor. Things to try: 1) check your monitor cable to make sure you didn't accidentally bend any pins when you reconnected it. 2) Unplug the monitor for about 5 minutes and then try again. 3) If you are positive that everything is connected correctly and that things are working (you can hear the hard drive and fans spinning up but no video) then you may have somehow killed a component. disconnect everything except the power-supply, video card, 1 stick of ram, the CPU and the CUP fan and see if it you get video there. If you don't, then the next step would be to swap out each of those components left to see what died.

Speakers doesnt play

check the motherboard manual and see if it requires a jumper to enable the audio onboard ( if so get the jumper from your motherboard box and seat it on the correct jumpers in the correct position to enable onboard audio ( assuming its onboard audio that you are using ) If not then ensure your sound card is seated firmly and install the correct drivers ( for either the onboard audio or the dedicated sound card ) and then ensure that the speaker cables are connected to the correct connectors on the sound card ( whether onboard or not ) and make sure windows audio is not muted for any of the auxilary lines ie wave etc and if its realtek ensure that you have 2 speakers selected in the HD Control panel and not head phones.

Your onboard video might not be working. I suggest getting a Video card and installing that. If onboard video is a must have then you can buy a low video card that fits your mobo, then search online for your mobos onboard video driver and then your onboard VGA should work.

Monitor doesnt switch on

Hi loudplumber, I doupt you're monitor functions in the manner you're stating. Does the monitor have a on/off button? If yes than you need to turn on the monitor. Check you're monitor, it will have a seperate power cord (That pluges into a wall AC jack) & a data cord which connects to the PC. If everything is connected correctly as I mentioned you should have a display on you're monitor. If you are not getting display than you're onboard integrated graphics card is not working. To test this you can add an AGP 4x 1.5v only graphics card to you're motherboard.
You can buy an AGP 4x 1.5v video card at this link. (Click on the link).

This video card can run both 8x & 4x. You can tell it supports the 1.5v because there are only two copper connections (Not counting the end locking tail). If the video card you are buying has three copper connectors it is not 1.5v compatible. The 4x video card arena is getting smaller. Mfg's are not making AGP card that much any more.

Good luck!
