I can not get my monitor to work, I tried vga and pci video cards
I have a ga-k8s706m and the on board video card stopped working. I tried the monitor on a friends PC and it works perfect. I tried clearing the CMOS and still nothing, I took the small battery out for thirty seconds and reset the BIOS with no luck. There is a small light next to the power led that blinks two short blinks and one long, I looked it up but all it said was that I was having video problems. I would appreciate any suggestions and thank you in advance...

Motherboard onboard video card is not functioning anymore. This problem is common in an integrated motherboard but the advantage of it is that you can turn off the damage device and install an alternative devices. I would highly suggest that you use a dedicated video card. If your motherboard have a AGP or PCIE then you should buy a video card that fits.

If the monitor works with other computer then the video card in the computer where the monitor does not work is bad. You need to replace the video card. If the video card is on the motherboard, just replace it with a video card that fits into one of the PCI slots. If you were using VGA then purchase a PCI VGA Video Card.
hey try the removing cards..... window 7 may took up it best when no such changes are around.. ! Gb or 2 RAm is enough to get run your Win 7 and sound card is noot required untill you have 4 or more speakers
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.
Hi there. I'm working on the assumption that the graphics card is a PCI Express card. Remember that if you are swapping from on-board graphics to a card you have to go into the BIOS and tell the machine that the primary graphics adapter is AGP/PCI Express. Plug the VGA cable into the on-board graphics port, start the computer and enter the BIOS, tell the computer to use the AGP/PCI card as primary, press F10, save the changes and exit the bios. The computer will try and restart so let it boot to post and turn it off, then put in your card and try to boot again. Please post back if you need more help or advice.
Before making sure you have all the plugs & connections in the right place, look at all the pins on the end of the monitor plug that plugs into your on board/video card making sure none are bent or missing. If not, then try swaping with a known working monitor. If good monitor doesn't work either theres a good chance you may need to either add or replace video card.
If none of these options work you can let me know and I'll try to suggest something else.
The beeps you heard, 1 long two short is the bios telling you that there is a problem with your video card. Normally you would remove & reseat it. Not the case with the intergrated video. When you added an AGP card you should have been able to get video. All video is controlled by the intergrated video controller. If your sure the radeon works than all that is left is the mb controller which can't be fixed. There is a slim chance you might get a PCI video card to work.

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!
