Basically there are 3 possibilities for on board video card failure
1.Hardware,
2.Software and
3.BIOS control

To fix the problem please follow the below steps
1.First of all unplug the power cord to avoid any shocks
2.First reset C MOS , to reset C MOS. Remove the case side panel and using the instructions provided in the motherboard manual, locate the three jumpers used to clear C MOS. Your motherboard will have a jumper shorting two pins usually labeled normal operation. Remove jumper shorting pins one and two, and replace that same jumper on pins two and three

4.Then plug the power and

Your system will not power up. Remove the Clear C MOS jumper from pins two and three, and replace it on pins one and two. Power up System. The system will require you to enter setup and correct the default settings. If clearing C MOS had no effect, you will not see anything on your screen when you power is back up.

If the above did not work then proceed further,


Enter setup, fix the date and time, and you should be in good shape, as most newer computer systems will automatically detect the rest of your setting.
While software driver errors can be fixed, this is something that can only be dealt with if you have some form of video function. If the screen is black, try clearing C MOS, as described above, and otherwise proceed to the next step.

Now the last step is to replace the video card.

Thanks.
Have great day.

SOURCE: video graphics card

You should just have to plug the card in to the PCI slot and install the drivers. After thats done try removing the driver for the onboard graphics I had onboard switched to a geforce 8800 and it worked just fine for me. Did you say your running a Dell?

I think the video card is doing some conflicting on your system, so if you have a spare video card that you can try that will be better.

Hope that helps........

My VGA has been corrupted. How can I fix it?


Hi , I suggest to check for any thermal issues including condition of the video card fan / heat sinks ie dust ,
If supported you can run a LINUX disk like Ubuntu in live / try mode
If video works ok , then most likely a Windows environment incl hardware conflict or virus / driver corruption issue ,
but if not then most likely a video card hardware issue like bad card cooling fan or excessive dust - thermal shedding issue or card bios/chipset fault

If a likely software issue then uninstall and then reinstall the video card
Consult ASUS or Nvidia support

The procedure is something like this
Onboard video support ?
yes
uninstall the video card driver and any video vendor configuration applets
Uninstall video card in device manager if still present.
Shut down and remove mains power cable
remove the hardware video card ,
(using anti static electricity procedures)
Attach onboard video to display
Power up and enter and configure BIOS setup if required, ie 1st seek onboard video
Bootup to Windows
Install the onboard video device
using Windows plug&play default driver executed during booting
Restart
Confirm working ok
Update the chipset driver (inf) if applicable,
restart
Shutdown
Reinstall the hardware video card
Attach to display
Reconfig BIOS setup if required
Start to install default driver
Install video driver / update from card default using a known good driver whose setup file has been previously downloaded
restart and test

Hope this helps

Can a PCI video card be installed on the Intel SE7501BR2 server board? My onboard video has color problems. I tried a known-working PCI video board after turning off onboard video, but got no video...


Most of the time you'll need to change a setting in the BIOS to force the computer to recognize the PCI slot first. Try going through your BIOS settings until you find it. It should be something like "Display First" or Primary, and it should be set to onboard graphics. Try changing that to PCI and see if that fixes your problem.

2 video card detected. onboard card are desable. PCIe card EN210GT. card detected first EN210 second 6150se MB MSI-7309 K9N6SGM-V


use your PCIE card to boot-up from CMOS, then check your onboard vga, try to configure it by 1st boot is your onboard, if that wont work then maybe your onboard vga was already damaged, better to use pcie video card rather than an onboard because it lets you consume the whole amount of your memory unlike the onboard card..

Dell Latitude D810 defective onboard VGA.


If the onboard VGA is defective, you will need to replace it (through Dell or, by buying a used D810 and taking it apart). Or, alternatively, look into an external USB video 'card'. Either of these will fix the problem, but bad hardware is bad hardware and in the computer world these days, you replace it. Fixing the video card isn't really an option anymore.

I have intel845 board when i switch on power without ram i get ram beeb but if ram installed i cant get any beeb & no display & board star power on automatically


If the board is starting properly with RAM installed but you are getting no display then the problem is with the video card or onboard video. If it is onboard video then you should be able to fix this by purchasing a compatible video card and installing in your pci-x slot. Make sure you disable onboard video once you are able to get into your bios. Hope this helps.

The monitor doesn't go on. the orange standby light blinks on and off. is there a reset?


Sounds like the issue is with your video card/onboard video chip or the connection between the monitor and the pc. Verify the cable from the monitor is connected to the pc firmly & snugly. See if the monitor gets a picture on a known working pc. If so, then it's a (relatively) simple fix - work on the videocard - if add-in, try reloading drivers, ensure the onboard video is disabled in the BIOS, or (worst case) replace the video card. If it's onboard, again, try replacing/updating drivers and, if that fails your next step is to either get an add-in video card, or replace the mobo.
