Question about Power Color RADEON 9600 (128 MB) Graphic Card
I was playing a game, and my display went blank. upon trying to restart, i had no video. i have since torn the rig down, rebuilt it step by step out of the case, using only psu, mb, one ram stick, one hd, and panel switches.
abit nf7-s2g mb
powercolor radeon 9600 128mb vid card
128 mb kingston ram
450watt raidmax psu
160gb seagate hd
i am getting the first beep like the mb is trying to enter bios, but i can't get into see it. i have cleared cmos, removed battery,etc.
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
