Still didn't work

You mean connect the cable directly to the graphics card? it's always been connected to it. i've even tried moving the graphics card to the other video slot but still no signal.

You have to ensure *********** board is having PCI Express slot or AGP slot for fitting graphics card. if *********** board does not have then you cant use it. normal slot is not supporting it.

connect your monitor video card cab le to newly fitted video output not on motherboard.

in the bios, there are usually settings for onboard devices. try turning off your onboard vga in the bios. and/or enabling/disabling pci-e video settings in the bios. it also helpful to ensure there is a monitor plugged into the video card. if there are 2 video outputs on the new card, try plugging the monitor into one, reboot, if nothing shows up, plug the monitor in the other one, reboot, if nothing shows up; i dont know :)

Does the DG31PR motherboard support Geforce 8400GS 512MB PCI-E?


Yes, but check your BIOS and make sure the PCI-E slot is enabled.

Also, when you say doesn't start, you mean just the screen? Right?

Biostar Tpower x58 LGA1366 motherboard will not start or post


"I sent it for repair but it came back in the same condition!"

That means to me, spiritual_sky, that there is operator headspace.

Motherboard was fine when they tested it, and problem is on your end; Or they didn't test it, and shipped it back.

Going to go through the basics, so be patient. Mistakes are often made by those of us who are technically qualified, due to simple errors.

http://www.biostar-usa.com/app/en-us/mb/introduction.php?S_ID=390

A) The Support Plate the motherboard is mounted to, can be a separate plate, or is an integral part of the metal frame, of the computer case.

1) It looks as though there are 10 mounting 'holes'. (Manual gives no details. Looking at it right now. Going by Biostar Support page, and main view)

Is there a metal Standoff on the Support Plate, that does Not line up with the mounting holes? If so it is touching an exposed solder joint.
This = No

B) Have all the power cables needed connected to the motherboard?

1) 24-pin ATX main power cable. (Hooked end of Lock on power cable hooked over Tab on motherboard connector)

2) 8-pin EPS +12 Volt power cable.
Has 4 Yellow 12 Volt wires, and 4 Black ground wires,

http://www.playtool.com/pages/psuconnectors/connectors.html#eps8

Has a Lock on the power cable connector also, and Tab on the motherboard connector. When plugged in properly, and tightly, the hooked end is over the Tab.

Connects to Left Upper corner.

Not to be confused with an 8-pin PCI Express power cable,

http://www.playtool.com/pages/psuconnectors/connectors.html#pciexpress8

[NOT an inference towards you, but I have seen people who could destroy a steel ball bearing in a sandbox, with a rubber mallet. They would try to cram an 8-pin PCI Express power cable, into a connector on the motherboard for an 8-pin EPS +12 Volt power cable ]

Three Yellow 12 Volt wires, FIVE Black ground wires.

A 6-pin PCI Express power cable will fit, and work, in a connector for an 8-pin EPS +12 Volt power cable.
Problem is it does -> Not, deliver the power that an 8-pin EPS +12 Volt power cable will deliver.

A graphics card senses whether a 6-pin, or an 8-pin power cable is being used.
SOME graphics cards will not work unless it is an 8-pin.

http://www.playtool.com/pages/psuconnectors/connectors.html#pciexpress

[See the power adapter cable on the right? Notice it uses TWO 4-pin standard Peripheral power cables. Some people make the mistake of only using one. This = NO ]

3) 4-pin standard Peripheral power cable. (Misnomered as a 'Molex' power cable)
Provides auxiliary power for the graphics card.
Manual states,
"This connector is an auxiliary power connection for graphics cards.
EXCLUSIVE power for the graphics card provides better graphics performance."

http://www.playtool.com/pages/psuconnectors/connectors.html#peripheral

May be reaching here, but if the graphics card you are using does ->Not require an additional power cable connected directly to it, but does ->max out what the motherboard can provide, not connecting that additional 4-pin power cable may be the problem.

May need it even if the graphics card does have it's own power cable/s.

Graphics card requires a power cable? Better have it plugged in.
Requires TWO power cables? Better have two power cables plugged in, and Not just one.

Graphics has a problem? The motherboard will not start, or P.O.S.T.

Using a single Graphics card.
HAS to go in the PCI Express x16 slot next to the Northbridge chip, under the processor socket. (PEX16_1)

The PCI Express slot that is the same length at the bottom, is a
PCI Express x4 slot. This = No.

[Top slot next to Northbridge, {Copper finned Heatsink is on top of Northbridge chip},

PCI-Express x16 slot. Slot 1.
Next slot down is a PCI-Express x1 slot.
Next slot down is a PCI-Express x16 slot. It is Slot 2.
Next slot down is a PCI-Express x4 slot ]


C) Simple error; Front Panel header pinout.

Front Panel header (JPANEL1) is at the bottom right corner.
Pins 1 through 8 are on the Bottom row;
1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, and 8.

Pins 9 through 16 are on the Top row;
9, 10, 11, 12, 13, 14, 15, and 16.

A) Pins 1, 2, 3, and 4 are for an Internal speaker. For BIOS Beep Codes. Pin 1 is for the Positive (+) wire. Pin 4 is for the Negative (-) wire.

B) Pins 5 and 6 are for the HarDDrive activity LED.
Pin 5 is for the Positive (+) wire.

C) Pins 7 and 8 are for a Reset switch, IF a Reset switch is used.

D) Pins 9 and 10 are N/C. Not connected. There is No Pin 11.

E) Pins 12, 13, and 14 are for a dual color Power On LED.
Pins 12 and 13 are for the Positive (+) wires, Pin 14 for the Negative.
If just using a single color Power ON LED, use Pins 12 and 14.

F) Pins 15 and 16 are for the Power On switch.

Make sure the Power On switch is good. Remove the wires, touch a Jewelers flat tipped screwdriver to the two pins - Briefly.

Comes on you have a bad Power On switch.

Do you KNOW that the Power Supply is good? Tested the three main voltages?
(3.3 Volt power rail
5 Volt power rail
12 Volt power rail )

Need to know how post in a Comment.

Just to ask; What is the maximum rated Wattage of the Power Supply, what is the Amperage of the 12 Volt power rail/s, and what is the manufacturer, and model number of the graphics card?

Regards,

Hi! i am having problem with Display from motherboard. I had already checked ram, power supply but i didn't get any display. so how can i resolved this problem. Please help.....


I'm assuming this is a desktop motherboard? Make sure the plug for power is connected and tight. It is refuses to work see if you have another slot and try moving it to the free spot.

If it still doesn't work: 1. make sure your monitor is connected properly and turned on 2. if possible try the monitor on another machine to make sure it's not the monitor itself

If the monitor works correctly on something else and you've tried the above than it's likely that the video card itself died and needs replacing.

My monitor samsung 2330 keeps saying check digital signal cable and I've put the cords all in the same way I had them before and now this screen keeps popping up


If you already check your connections and still no answer from what you're doing, do these steps:
  1. check for any beep codes
  2. remove and reinsert your RAM to another memory slot, if it works you have a problem with your RAM, you'll need to buy a new RAM that is compatible with your motherboard
  3. if you here a 1 short beep, that means it already start the booting sequence of your computer but you don't see any boot screen and still the out of range error. You have a defective graphic card.
  4. Is your monitor is a LCD type? if your answer is yes that means your monitor is not compatible with your old graphic card, buy a new graphic card that is compatible with your motherboard and to your LCD monitor. Because old graphic cards or onboard vga cannot hold much more pixels than newer ones that's why you have an out of range error

Im runing a elitegroup a785gm-ad3 with a athlon II x4 and 2x 2gb ddr3 and 2x 1tb hdd and gforce 9500 ddr2 1gb card, the problem I have is when I switch my PC on it gives no picture at all, I've tryed...


when you took the graphics card out did you notice any dust in the socket

Test all leads that attach to your hard drive including electrical extensions IDE,SATA

the leads from your "((motherboard to your hard drive))" make sure they have a secure connection and are not faulty or just replace them they might be faulty

make sure all leads that are attached to your drives dvd\cd 3 1/2 inch floppy have secure connections and are not faulty even something as small as a faulty elctrical fan and its lead can cause this problem also the electrical extensions or just replace them they could be faulty a computer needs its connections to continue its cycle and have an end so any faulty leads will end up with a computer error If your computer came with a motherboard disc the drivers could be on it or you might have a dirty graphics card remove the graphics card and clean the socket
hope this helps

No display


Your system is not receiving the POST signal from your motherboard. Make sure you have connected the display cable either to your onboard graphics or your graphics card.

If you previously had your VGA cable connected to a graphics card, remove the card and plug into your onboard graphics. Then power up and see if you get signal.

If you get signal after plugging into onboard graphics then this means that your graphics card has failed and you will need a new one.

If you still don't get signal then you will need to take your system to have it checked out by a qualified PC technition to see which components have failed.

Graphics card makes system reboot


Please shut down you're PC. Unplug the power cord from the PC. Remove the video card you have installed.
Once removed plug the power cord back in & start the PC. Press the delete key on the keyboard every 2 seconds untill the bios main menu loads. How to move around in the bios is shown at the bottom of each menu screen.
The Asus P4S800-MX motherboard has an onboard video card built into the motherboard. Before you can add a video card you must make a change in the bios. Go to Advanced menu.
Page 2-21 in you're manual. Change primary VGA bios to [AGP VGA Card].
Save & exit the bios. The PC will begin to restart. Press & hold the power button on you're PC until the PC shuts off. Unplug the power cord again, open the case & firmly & evenly insert you're AGP graphics card. Connect any extra power to the graphics card if required. Re-check all connections & cables before closing the case. Turn on the PC. Wait for windows to finish loading before installing you're video card software.
That's it. You're card should now function. Good idea to update windows!

Good Luck!
Mike

Color problem


So you mean you connect the TV into your computer, is it onboard display or you have the graphics card connected.

If you have the graphics card connected to your TV, check the settings of the graphics card installed in your computer. Just manually browse the software provided by the card, surely there is a portion there that tells on how to connect properly TV or even adusting it say for errors such as colors.
