    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!

Unsupported render target format


It sounds like your video card isn't powerful enough for the game (I would suspect). Re-post your system specs and what game you are trying to play and someone can look specifically at your system vs. the game requirements.

Black Screen when playing 3D games on ATI Radeon 9550 X1050 Serie


the game resolution is not supported by your monitor....this is the reason your screen goes blank....
by the next time if the screen goes blank, press alt+ctrl+del together and check are you able to see the task manager....
if you can see the task manager, then close the game from that window by selecting end task....
if you cant see the task manager, then press ctrl+alt+del together 2 times and check....
if nothing works, then try by checking with any HD monitors if available with you or with your friends...

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.

GEFORCE FX 5500 video quality low, slow motion videos and games


well if your trying to game on a pc the 5500 isnt quite sufficient. If you dont know about nvidia you are about 5 generations back of days cards. So the card wont handle any of todays games. If your really trying to game i suggest you build/buy a new rig. But as far as playing videos, quality should be good. Try goin to nvidia.com and downloading the newest drivers.

Screen goes blank for a few seconds, i get an error from vpu rec.


Hey,

I'm sorry the video card has a hardware problem, have you overclocked it?

the card froze and stoped responding to the commands from the driver. so it had to reset.

This can happen if the card is damaged, by overclock, or the clocks are too high, voltage too low or too high, this is all related to overclocking.

But this can also be caused by overheating.

Nvidia GeForce FX 5500 / 256MB... Problem


Hi jhacy, I went over all you're posted questions conserning this issue with the FX5500 video card. Please include the manufacture name of you're motherboard & its model number. It is possible the video card is bad (Even if it's new). There are settings in the motherboard bios that me need to be shut off if the motherboard has an integreated video card onboard. It's possible that the AGP slot on you're board is dirty & needs to be cleaned. Please list the name or name's of the games you have tried to run but freeze you're computer or crash you're system.
I will automatically recieve an email from fixya when you post the information I have asked for above. Untill than, take care!
