Hi Rafae183, yes, you're board, Abit Al7/Al7-G supports AGP8x/4x speeds & voltage of 0.8v/1.5volts only.
Below is the Abit link for you're board. Listed on the right of the page is product Inf. & support Inf. Suggest you add this to you're favorites.
http://www.abit.com.tw/page/en/motherboard/motherboard_detail.php?pMODEL_NAME=AI7&fMTYPE=Socket%20478&pPRODINFO=Specifications

Suggested any one of these AGP8x speed video cards.

Remember to check for voltage. You're video card must run at 1.5volts only. Warranty's are important too.

Have more questions, feel free to ask.
Best of luck to you!

Mike

Rgb connection stopped working on laptop


Instructions
    • 1 Decide if you want to watch the television on your computer or use the TV as a larger monitor. If you want to view the contents of the TV on your laptop, you need a video card connected to to the computer. These cards can either be inserted through the express PCI card slot on the laptop, or via USB cable. Make sure the video tuner card supports component video.
    • 2 Connect the DVI-to-component cable into the DVI port if you want to use the TV as a large monitor for your laptop. However, if you have a VGA port, plug the VGA-to-component cable into the VGA port.
    • 3 Plug the RGB component cables into the component side of the DVI- or VGA-to-component cable. If you want to watch the TV on your computer, insert the RGB cables into the TV video card.
    • 4 Plug the other end of the RGB component cables into the TV. If you are using the TV as a monitor, plug the cables into the "Component In" ports. However, if you are sending the TV signal to the computer, plug the cables into the "Component Out" port (the other end of the DVI- or VGA-to-component cable that you connected to your computer in Step 2).
    • 5 Power on the TV. If you are using the TV as a computer monitor, press the "Video" button until "Component Video" appears on the screen. If you are watching TV on your computer, launch the television viewing software that came with the TV tuner card. You can now see the contents of the TV on your computer.

After post screen monitor goes into standby and cannot boot from dvd


Not picking up video card, or rather losing communications. Use VGA port if available on you card, and make sure monitor is set to same connection port.

The light on monitor stays yellow


If your PC has started HDD flashing and there is power to the monitor this means that the video card has not told the monitor to display, its kind of like in standby you can get this if the onboard VGA is faulty.

If you have another basic VGA card insert this into a spare PCI slot while the PC is off and plug the monitor into this instead if this works your monitor is fine and looks like your VGA on the mobo is trashed, just buy decent 512MB PCI or AGP video card and use this setup instead.

Its also good idea to disable the on board VGA in the BIOS.

It looks like the graphic card is broken on the MB (as far as I can say there is integrated VGA card) or even whole mobo is useless. To test it you need to get some external video card - ISA or PCI based on the specs of this mobo. Connect monitor to external card and see what's there. If it looks pretty much the same way then you can throw away your mobo.

EMachine stopped displaying video (card not working, just mobo)


Hi there

I would say it's the graphics card that's failed. You might get the same beeps for faulty card as removed card....

Take it to a shop where they can test a compatible card, before they sell you one or install one for you.

VGA PROBLEM


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 not working


sorry friend i ws lill busy so could not rply.
Anyways
  • This is the VGA out: ebc4b94.jpg
  • And this is the connection for VGA comes from monitor: c99e5d1.jpg
  • Now if your VGA - Out is mounted on your motherboard then you have on-board VGA card.
  • If it VGA - Out comes from a PCI card like dffb048.jpg
  • means you have PCI VGA card.
Now if you want to use another PCI card just remove the one which you are using and use another one. Use only one PCI card for VGA, need not to use more than PCI VGA card at a time.

Thanks

Hi Rafael83,

There may be afew things that may be wrong. One, the video card may be bad, two the motherboard may be bad, or three your power supply may not have enough wattage to power your video card. Or it coud be all of the above.
