Question about ASUS P5AD2-E Deluxe Motherboard

1 Answer

Graphics Card compatibility?

Heya, I got this "broken" computer from a friend of mine. It stars up and everything, but the monitor doesn't recieve any signal. After numerous tests, I've come to the conclusion that it must be the graphics card, and so am setting out to buy a new one. The only problem is, I don't know what kind of graphics card I need. I know it's a P5AD2-E Deluxe motherboard, do I just need a compatibility chart or something, which of course ASUS doesn't have. The last one was an Nvidia p383, but I think I'm gonna go for a better one if I can, simply because I love doing media stuff, and I wanna make sure Diablo 3 will run on it, when it comes out. ^^;;

Thanks in advance,
Nov3mberMist

Hi.
I could tell you exactly what Graphics Adapter to buy, but
i think is better if you learn how to decide by yourself, so i recoommend you to use the following url, that will take you to your motherboard Specs( you should always visit the manufacturers websites, because nobody can help you better than them).
Often you can get updated drivers for your devices from them.
If the link doesn't work, you can copy and paste the following address:
http://www.asus.com/products.aspx?modelmenu=2&model=404&l1=3&l2=11&l3=144&l4=0

In the Expansion Slots( the ones you use for graphics adapters) the performance decreases from top to bbottom.

I hope that help you

Screen is white


OK, two possible problems but first, turn off and unplug everything.
Set everything up and try a different monitor (borrow one from a friend or plug into flat screen tv)
If this gives same result then your graphics chip is dead. Replace graphics card.
If your pc doesn't have a graphics card to replace then there's probably something else wrong on the motherboard so you'll probably need to replace this.
If it does work on a borrowed monitor/tv then you monitor is faulty and needs replacing.

VGA / Onboard graphics Issue


Yes, there may be a problem with the on board graphics, if you have a compatible graphics card you can bypass the on board.
Was the previous owner using the on-board, or did he maybe have a card that he removed? Might be worth looking in the BIOS settings in case the on board graphics has been disabled

You might have one of several problems.

Your monitor might require a driver for your computer/graphics card in order to show up.
Your monitor's input might be slightly damaged.
Or your graphics card might not have the proper drivers in order to display on that kind of monitor.

I would go online and make sure your drivers are up to date for your graphics card first, then inspect your monitor to make sure no pins from the cable have broken into the input, and then make sure that your monitor is compatible with/without drivers to your graphics card.

Switch on computer and message on monitor says no signal input. think it might be the graphics card but can't test because not compatible with old computer mother board


This is more likely to be a problem with the connection between the graphics card & the monitor. The connection might be loose at one of the ends. Another possibility is that the cable connecting the graphics card & the monitor is damaged & needs to be replaced. Also, it might be because of a damaged VGA socket. Check the VGA socket for broken or bent pins.

White screen


If its your laptop's own screen that's going white its a known issue with the old Presarios and Armada laptops that their graphics boards or connectors wear out and eventually lead to "Whiteouts". Take it to a HP repair centre if possible, they can quote for repair. It might just b be the graphics cable needs reseating in whcih case it would be quite cheap to fix. If you you need a replacement graphics board it will be quite expensive and possibly not economical to repair.

If you mean an external monitor then once you have confirmed its not a loose cable or a pin broken at one end then the monitor itself is probably faulty.
