Question about Intel Motherboard

MSI k8ngm2-h mobo doesn't recognize PCI-E slot anymore!

I went to start up my computer and had no monitor! Put a old monitor into VGA onboard, worked fine. Went to uninstall my graphics card (in PCI-E), found no reference to it in drivers. Reinstalled drivers, still nothing. Took card out, booted, didn't say anything about hardware being removed. Put card back in, rebooted, didn't say anything about new hardware. Went into BIOS and re-selected PCI Express over onboard graphics, saved and exited. Still nothing. It's almost as if the motherboard doesn't even know that it has a PCI-E slot anymore. No power to it or anyting. Graphics card and monitor worked fine for about 1 yr now, not sure what went wrong. So, is there a way to diagnose a PCI-E slot for power/info. if I do not have a second PCI-E card to stick in there? Other than BIOS "PCI Express/Onboard" option is there any other places that I could FORCE the motherboard to look at the PCI-E?

    I tried to install an ATI 2400 HD Pro on my computer using the PCI-Express slot. It worked fine until I upgraded to Vista, then it was like the card didn't exist anymore. So I downgraded back to XP, and still no card. I am now stuck with these crappy onboard graphics and there is nothing I can do about it.

Just a suggestion for you to try.
This is to check whether your PCI-E card is ok or not.
The BIOS setting option should be on PCI Express.
Take out the power cable from the hard disk - we don't want to mess around with window driver or system that might be the culprit.
Now turn on the computer, if ok, you should see some texts on your screen. This is a confirmation that your PCI-E card is still working. So then for you to work on your windows to solve the problem. Good luck.

Adding discrete graphics card to p6stp-fl


!O_O!

1) Unplug the computer from power.

2) Press the Power On button in, and hold it in for a count of 10 seconds. Let go. (HAS to be 10. Count)
Do this same procedure TWO more times.
(IF the Power On LED flashes for a second, keep repeating until it doesn't)

What you are doing is clearing CMOS Error Codes, and resetting BIOS Setup parameters back to the factory default settings.

3) FOLLOWING Anti-Static Precautions remove the graphics card.
Plug the monitor back into the Integrated (OnBoard) graphics, of the motherboard. (VGA connector)

4) Plug the computer back into power. WAIT 1 minute, turn the computer on.

5) When Windows has loaded wait a couple of minutes, then take that graphics card's Installation (CD) Disk, and put it in the optical drive.

If the disk doesn't start loading after 10 seconds, go to My Computer, and double-click on the drive letter, next to the optical drive, the Installation Disk is in.

When asked choose all software. Nvidia Control Panel, and drivers.

Your computer will keep on using the Integrated (OnBoard) drivers, for graphics. It will Not use the drivers, and software you are installing now, until the graphics card is physically installed.

Install all software. If you are asked to restart your computer -> NO
Close all windows, go back to your desktop screen.
Turn the computer off normally.
(Start > Turn Off Computer > Turn Off)

6) Unplug from power, follow Anti-Static Precautions.
Unplug the monitor from the motherboard. Physically install the graphics card.
Plug the monitor into the graphics card. Close the computer case.

7) Plug into power. WAIT 1 minute, turn the computer on.
You may have to go into Nvidia Control Panel, and set the correct parameters for your monitor. (Screen Resolution / Color quality )

Clear CMOS Error Codes, and reset BIOS Setup back to factory settings doesn't work?
You get to go back into BIOS Setup, and set the submenu you changed, (Or submenu's), back to the factory standard setting.
(F6?)

You are trying to use the OnBoard graphics drivers for the -> graphics card. This = NO.
You need THE drivers for the graphics card installed F-I-R-S-T.

(OnBoard. ON the motherBOARD.
Used to be used for Integrated Graphics.
Makes it easier to understand if you use OnBoard Graphics )

Why?

When a device, (In this case a graphics adapter card), is installed, Windows 'breaks it's neck' to find suitable, matching drivers.
If THE drivers are not there, Windows will match up one of it's THOUSANDS of generic drivers.

This = No.

You need THE drivers already installed. Windows looks to see what device is installed, then finds THE drivers needed.

No video in onboard plugin


If the motherboard has an onboard VGA output - try that. But first remove the plugin video card from the computer and then check the onboard VGA output.

No beep,No Display on my monitor,only CPU heatsink fan is moving


You motherboard has onboard video. It's possible it needs to be disabled and the option changed to use the pci or pci-express slot for the Ati card you installed. Since you have no post error beeps this is the best place to start. Also I had built a system not to long ago and had a similar problem. Resetting the cmos on the motherboard (usually a pin combo) solved the issue.

Start by hooking up your vga cable to the onboard video.

Hope this helps.

Unexpectedly lost graphics, but theres a story to the issue.


You mentioned that you disabled the on-board graphics card using the device mamager.
You should disable the on-board video card in the BIOS.
Go to the BIOS config and disable the Video.

PCI slot no working


Hi Adam, you did a great job trouble shooting your system & you even answered your own question. If one PCI slot works the other should but since you tested that you're self & the PCI slot failed than the PCI slot is bad. My guess is one or more soldered points under the PCI slot. (Underside of the motherboard) is cracked or broken. It may be possible for you to re-solder the cracked or broken joints. The only way to prove this theory will be to remove the entire motherboard from the case & visually check every single joint. There is no single driver for the PCI slot. The PCI slots are part of the chipset driver which is already installed. There is alway replacing the motherboard.

Great job Adam!

I can see you getting an error with pci.sys but not with pcy.sys.
Did a full system scan in a working WinXP Pro & found not such animal within the system or regestry. After looking through microsoft I did come across pci.sys and what may creat such an error. I would point to your onboard VGA. If intergrated into the board as I suspect. It is a pci device. During install windows found something wrong with it hence your error & blue screen. Suggest using your PCIE card & set bios to same disabling the VGA. Your install should no longer fail.
Good luck & please vote!

Gigabyte onboard vga is not default... no pci card


What you can do here is remove the Battery on your mobo. This will reset the CMOS and then you should be able to access your CMOS as usual. :)
