Sounds like you could have fried something, I'd say if pulling memory all out and putting memory back in doesn't solve the issue you should go into hock and buy a new computer.

How to add second monitor on ECS RS482-M


Doesn't work that way Max.

You can use EITHER the OnBoard Graphics,
OR;
the Add-On Card graphics. (Graphics card)

BIOS will NOT support both at the same time.

If you wish to use dual monitors, get an AGP card that has more than one graphics port on it.

For example, although I'm using a graphics card based on the PCI Express technology, and not AGP technology; my card has a VGA port, DVI port, and HDMI port.

1) VGA Connector; http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/VGA_Connector

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Male_VGA_connector.jpg


2) DVI; http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Digital_Visual_Interface

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Dvi-cable.jpg

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Digital_Visual_Interface#Connector

3) HDMI; http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/HDMI

I use the VGA port, and the DVI port.

RCA EN-V L26HD31, (26 inch HDTV) to the VGA port.
HP 2009M 20 inch Widescreen monitor to the DVI port.

Had to install drivers for HP 2009M.

Let's say I had two DVI ports on the graphics card.
(ATI Radeon HD5450 is the graphics card I have)

But I have a monitor with a VGA cable, and a monitor with a DVI cable.
I would (And have) use a VGA to DVI Adapter.
One example,

http://www.directron.com/dvi.html

Note that the DVI is Male, and the VGA is Female.
The graphics card DVI connector is Female.
The VGA Cable connector is Male.

So.............what is the manufacturer name, and model number of the graphics card; plus what type of monitors are you trying to use?
That is, what type of monitor cables do they have?

Know this;
My HDTV I'm using as a monitor is Digital. However I'm using a VGA cable on it. Best quality would be achieved if I got off my lazy rear, and attached a DVI Cable to it. It uses both.

VGA is Analog. A computer however puts out a digital video signal.
The computer has to convert the digital video signal to an Analog one. This slows the video signal down, and the quality is not as good.

Best to use a digital monitor. (Or a digital monitor WITH a digital cable. DVI Cable. Such as I need to do)

You are also using a PCI Express graphics card, NOT an AGP graphics card.

I'm wrong? OK.

In the meantime turn the computer off, unplug from power, and yank that AGP card out of the slot you put it in.

Tell me what expansion slot on the motherboard you put it in.

The Orange expansion slot on the motherboard, is a PCI-Express x16 slot. Uses a PCI Express graphics card -> ONLY

The white expansions slots are PCI.
Can use a PCI graphics card. CANNOT use an AGP graphics card.

I have a Gigabyte GA-K8VM800M Motherboard with 2gb ram. I want to disable the onboard graphics card and add another VGA card. Which card should I go for?? Will adding VGA card, show physical memory as 2gb...


Hello you can download the manual, and drivers here:

http://www.gigabyte.com/products/product-page.aspx?pid=1810#manual

You can add a graphic card 1 x AGP slot (8x/4x-AGP 3.0 compliant), supports 1.5v display card only.
And Max capacity: Up to 2GB DDR400 RAM by 2 DIMM slots.

ATI/AMD makes very good graphic cards.

Adding a graphic card on the mainboard will not slow the physical memory. It has it`s own ram.

Good luck

MEMORY/RAM problem, system won't acknowledge both slots of memory


You might have on-board VGA card which take 8 Mb (shared) in memory taken from extended memory card.
My suggestion, use exactly similar memory card ( same PC clock, either 400/533/667/etc. If this won't work, try to clean the memory slots with brush.

Intel D945GCZ, PCI-E video card


Mostly PCI-E now are good vga card, i have a tip for you... there's is a secret between a 512MB & 1GB PCI-E card. With this feature is required a good power supply, like for example I used Power Supply 550watts (original 500watts power supply). This power supply is different from 350watts and 500watts.. Here is a secret buy a 550 watts to boost PCI-E card both 512MB & 1GB. Secretly this performance are based on my own analysis using CPU booster freeware... I'm sure 100% more compatible & perfectly to your motherboard. Just try it at least you have idea where you want to grab PCI-E cards (any Model).
Good luck!

THE BIOSTAR G31-M7 TE MOTHERBOARD WONT START UP.IT COMES ON BUT WONT POST OR SHOW ANYTHING ON MONITOR


Good day sir, hi. you need these 7 things to make your pc start, make sure they are good.

first unplug your pc. open the side panel to access the motherboard. Remove all connections to the motherboard.
  1. Remove and check the memory module, make sure that the memory terminals are clean, you can use an eraser to clean the contacts. much better if you have new ones. or test the memory modules on another PC to confirm that they are good, then snap it in place, you should hear clicks as you place it on the slot.
  2. Clean the memory slot with a clean paint brush, there should be no foreign objects inside the slots, visual inspection is necessary.
  3. make sure you PS is good. Plug in the 20/24 pin connector and the 4 pin 12v connector firmly.
  4. Make sure that the processor is installed properly. the fan is connected on the fan power port.
  5. connect the monitor to the vga slot, (or if you have graphics card)
  6. connect a keyboard,
  7. and a pc speaker (or the thumb speaker)
Power on your PC.
monitor your PC speaker.

You should hear a beep, (good) one long and 2 or 3 short beeps, problem with the display card, continuous beeps, system board cannot detect memory.

monitor your keyboard.

You should see 3 sets of led light, numlock+caps lock+scroll lock, and a few seconds, 1 led light, the num lock only.

P4vm800 not working how to solve this probelom


Good day sir, hi, lets make sure first that your motherboard is good, so we need to test it, just prepare the folowing items.
  1. A good working power supply, to test: place a jumper wire across the green wire and any black(or sometimes the red with work) wire on the 20/24 pin power connector. Plug it and see if the exhaust fan run.
  2. A good set of Ram, just make sure its good. if not or in doubt buy new one (only one module) if you want. (you can keep the doubtful ones and test it later)
  3. A keyboard.
  4. If your motherboard has no VGA onboard, A good VGA card.
  5. A thumb speaker, or you can use your PC case speaker.
Okay lets assemble, on a table:
  1. Place your motherboard, (make sure no metals underneath) connect the Power Supply 20(or 24) pin to your motherboard and the 4 pin 12v connector. (if your motherboard has one).
  2. Connect the pc thumb speaker or your case speaker.
  3. connect the keyboard.
  4. connect the RAM, make sure it clicks as you install it.
  5. Optional VGA card. Onboard vga will do. Connect a monitor. plug in the monitor.
Okay, plug in your power supply, (exhaust fan is off at the moment) locate the power button pins, short them with a screwdriver. (fan is now on)

Now check your Keyboard. you will see two sets of lights, first set is Num Lock + Scroll Lock + Caps Lock, then a few seconds the second set: Num Lock only. at this point your motherboard is good.

Also check out the PC speaker beeps.
  • 1 beep mean good.
  • 1 long and 3 short beeps VGA is bad. (it may help if the VGA is snug and fit on the slot). If on board VGA, use a new AGP/PCIe card.
  • Continous long beeps. cannot detect memory
  • Continous short beeps, motherboard. (or memory sometimes).
  • No beep, fan is on.at this point do everything again. (do it several times until the board responds)
Hope this helps you. feel free to ask again.

Replacing the onboard graphics card


Friend,
There are three PCI slots on yoyr motherboard. You can add any PCI VGA card to your board. After adding the VGA goto BIOS setup and make ON BOARD VGA DISABLED.

Mother board


Firstly your motherboard doesn't have video capabilities built in so you have an addon video card. I doubt there's any problem with the board as it's jumperless and you can't have the CPU settings wrong. Are you getting any beeps when you switch on? The length and number of beeps can tell you where the problem is. The usual problem with no video is either a memory problem or video card problem. If you can borrow another video card try it. Make sure the plug is correctly inserted all the way in and make sure the video card is properly seated in it's slot. I assume you're using the 4x AGP slot. Remove that and try another ot even a PCI card in the PCI slots. You may then get a picture. Actually apart from finding it hard to figure out your actual problem it's very hard to diagnose a fault from the little you've told me. Certainly the motherboard can be faulty and you won't get video but it's the video card you should be looking at first. Have you turned the monitor on and plugged it in?
