Question about Asrock K7VM4 Motherboard
Same problem as Patatas. Some time ago I couldn't get the operating system to load. The machine would fire up but at this stage I did have something on the screen. I thought it was a bad sector on the hard drive so I reformatted and everything was fine for about a month. Now the screen is blank again and when I go into the screen menu it tells me that 'no signal' is being received. I have taken out the graphics card (which has worked perfectly up to now) and tried the on-board graphics port but same message. Have tried another monitor - nothing. Have bought a new hard drive - nothing. Given that the hard drive is firing up I have discounted a faulty PSU (am I right to do so?). There is a second hand K7 VT6 Motherboard for sale on e-bay - would this be a reasonable replacement? Thanks
Hi Eagleboy, I wouldn't suggest buying a board on ebay. If things do not work out you'll spend more for shipping to & back just returning it rather than buying a new AGP4x video card.
You can double check the AGP slot. Get a strong flashlight. Look down into the slot, check for bent copper retainers, dirt & dust. You can also check & make sure the retainers almost touch each other from their oppsite sides. This is where you can help the AGP card get a tight fit. Clean both the AGP cards copper contacts & the slots copper retainers. Use house hold alcohol & some cotton swabs. Blow out the slot well
I'm guessing that you set the bios up correctly when you were using the AGP card & reset the bios when you went back to using the MB's VIA UniChrome Graphics. I agree with you, no need for a new PSU or HD. Shame you can not test your AGP card in another PC. If you can't do that than buy another AGP4x card & install it. http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/category/category_slc.asp?CatId=879&Nav=|c:318|c:694|&Sort=0&Recs=10
This is all a suggestion. If you feel the board is bad & replacing it sits well with you. (Do what you think is best).
Here are some compatable boards I have come across. I am unaware what CPU you are using.
If there is anything else I can do, just ask.
