Question about Computers & Internet

1 Answer

No video signal

I installed a video card but forgot to disable the onboard video for the motherboard (Gigabyte GAM61SME-S2). The monitor only says "no signal." I took the video card out and plugged the monitor in to the motherboard's connector, but now I still get no signal. I've tried (among other things) clearing the CMOS, but I still can't get a signal to the monitor.
All I can think is that the motherboard was damaged when I started up with the video card installed and the monitor hooked to it.

That does not sound likely. how old is your computer? if it is more than about 5-6 years, it may have a blown power supply(basically your computer is dead) this happened to my friend's computer while i was there and he blamed it on me, if you think you caused it, don't sweat it. it would have died anyway! to prevent this from happening in the future:

-get a high powered one(450-800watts)
-replace it before it goes, not when it goes(so, when the pc reaches the 5-6 year mark)
-back up all your data to a usb hard drive that is not connected to your computer(network storage, etc.) make sure it is at least 250gb, if not 500gb to make sure you have enough room.
-make sure the computer doesn't get too hot. if you are not too sure, download a program called speedfan. use it wisely, and if you don't know what something means, don't touch it until you know what it means.

hope that hepls, cheers!

Onboard audio automaticly disabeled by video card


It sounds if it may be that you need to turn off the HDMI audio in the nVidia Control Panel. This can be accessed from either the system tray or by right clicking on the desktop. From the control panel, select "change resolution" under the "Display" heading and in the right panel select your display and you should find a drop down box under for the connecter, which will allow you to select HD audio disabled, then you can exit and save changes.

How do i disable onboard video on a intel d865glc motherboard?


A couple things to try:
  1. Most important, check with Intel's support site to see if you have the latest version of the BIOS.

  2. Boot to the BIOS: Choose "Configuration", then "Video", choose "Enable if Primary" or if you're feeling brave choose to Disable it entirely. WARNING: DON'T do this until your other card is working properly! You've been warned!

  3. While still in BIOS: Choose "Configuration", then "Video", choose "AGP" if available, or "Auto" if AGP is not an option.

Information from Intel support website.

Have you updated the BIOS for the motherboard? AM3 processors don't usually work correctly in an AM2 board without a BIOS upgrade. Also, did you remember to check the BIOS to see that it was set to use the onboard VGA? Likewise when you tried the graphics card (set to PCIe)? Another thing to do is plug the monitor in a known to be good computer to make sure it's working OK, perhaps a monitor setting is misconfigured.

You would want to make sure you have the latest bios for the motherboard updated. If the issue happens during post then it would be a motherboard related. However if it only happens in windows it would be an issue with the drives. Try grabbing the latest drivers from NVIDIA's website for your card. Then go into device manager in Windows and make sure you right click the onboard video and disable it. This setting should disable the onboard video in Windows and only allow the 8400GS card to run.

Vga card is dead so the nothing showing on the screen


Hello,
On motherboards with built in video cards when you plug in a new card the on board card is automatically disabled. Just plug the card in and connect your monitor.

I hope this helps, if so please rate our solution.
