    i know the monitor works, because i hooked it up to my laptop, then to an older desktop, it works.



    my motherboard does not have onboard video...i am going to try another pci video card and see if i get display. i just don't understand why my video card would stop working after working perfectly daily for four years.

    if it has onboard video, then i am totally missing where to hook up a monitor without a card installed. that may be for the nf7-s2, and not the g model? i dunno. turns out my video card is bad, i used a different agp card from my old dell, and i'm golden.



    thanks for all the help.

There are a few things that can cause no display on the monitor.
That single beep means POST = Power On Self Test. Post has tested everything on you're board to be good.
The cable between video card & monitor may be bad or not connected correctly (Swap out the cable as last resort).
2. You're monitor is defective, try swapping it with known working monitor.
3. You're video card is not functioning.
Lastly, when you reset the system cmos/bios everything went back to default. This means you're bios is now using the onboard PCI video graphics. Remove you're radeon 9600 video card. Try booting the system. You should see display again. The only way to test you're radeon would be to boot to the bios & set bios to boot using the AGP radeon. You need to change Init Display First to AGP & not PCI. If you loose video than you know you're AGP card is bad. Reset the cmos/bios before adding another AGP card or you will not get display. This setting is on pg 3-5. Integrated Peripherals. If you need you're manual you can download it from this link: http://www.abit.com.tw/page/en/motherboard/motherboard_detail.php?pMODEL_NAME=NF7-S2G&fMTYPE=Socket+A

Good Luck!

Was playing video game and picture just went blank.Tried powering down waiting and power back up.Nothing


You need to be more specific about your problem. What console were you playing on. How was the game loaded, Hard-disk or DVD or USB. Was there any sort of sparks or burnt smell? What does the Console do when powering up? Is there any sort of output to the screen?

This appears to be a possible glitch in the save area. Had you previously been playing the game with no issues and only came upon the problem when restarting from a save?

If so then try to delete your save and start from new.

Problems with Palit R700


The R700 is also a HD4850 but is the X2 model. Have you checked for any firmware updates or driver updates on Palit's site here: http://www.palit.biz/main/download.php?pc_cate=vga&id=1038

I'd also check the games for their specific requirements most notably if they require Direct X or openGL drivers.

Post back with what's happening in the games and what error messages are so we can help with isolating the actual problem.

Acer Aspire 5052 nothing on LCD


If the LCD display worked until the processor over heated and then went blank, and would work again once it cooled down, then yes I do. As you described above, the screen going blank and blank still on reboot ( no time to cool down ), then the next day the LCD displayed again ( cooled down over night ). Appears to be directly related to the over heating problem.
But if the display problem progressed to the point that the PC would boot up cold and the display was still blank, then I would think your graphics card will need repair.

When playing a game the screen goes blank after a while


Dude, all you have to do is restart your console and it should start up fine. If it doesn't, keep restarting it until it does. The new-age HD cables have to load a lot of **** to and from your TV to display properly, and if it has the smallest delay, it doesn't display ****.
