Question about ASUS T2-AH1 Barebone

1 Answer

Monitor Problem I am having problems with my Viewsonic 19" widescreen monitor. When I connect the VGA cable to its port on the video card, and power on the machine it displays "no signal" and I also get the same problem when I plug the VGA cable into a DVI to VGA adapter and plug that into the video card. I know its not the monitor itself as I am currently using the monitor on another machine, and my Asus T2 AH1 is the only one that gives me problems. The only possibilties I've thought up is possibly the video card is bad, but I dont think that's it, or the DVI to VGA connector I purchased is bad. If it helps the video card is a ATI Radeon Xpress 300, which is what came with the system. Any help is much appreciated.

Well assuming you used the same video cable when you tested the monitor on the Asus PC you?re left with: - Physical problem with the Asus video card. - Asus video card configuration problem. - BIOS configuration problem - Possibly a problem with the DVI/VGA adaptor depending on the answer below. A couple of questions about the Asus before we start: - I?m not sure I understand how the DVI/VGA converter figures into this. Is your cable coming off the monitor DVI thus you need it to plug into the Asus VGA connector? If yes who is the manufacturer of the device and what model do you have? - Has the Asus worked in the past with another monitor or is this new? - What is its history/configuration?

2nd monitor does not work with DVI to VGA converter cable. My video card has VGA and DVi ouputs.

The problem could be in the adapter to the video card. There are different types of DVI connections. If the adapter does not have the proper set of pins then the card will not recognize that a monitor is connected at that port. Monitors themselves have no bearing on whether a single or dual monitor set up will work or not. Digital Visual Interface Follow this link, it may help you determine if the adapter you are using is correct for the graphics card.

I have sapphire ati radeon 5570 graphics card. i have aoc 912sw+ 19 inch lcd monitor. how to connect hdmi port of graphics card with monitor?

the HDMI port is for connecting video and sound to a home theatre / surround sound system. I understand that this monitor only has a VGA connector.

The sapphire ati radeon 5570 graphics card has the following ports on the back to connect to a display: DVI (white), VGA (blue) and DisplayPort (the thin slot in the middle). You can use an ordinary VGA cable to connect the card to your monitor.

Unfortunately you cannot connect this card directly to your monitor using the DisplayPort.

Hope this helps

Try a different video card or disconnect the one you have in your PC and use the VGA monitor connection on the motherboard. If it works your video card is gone.

Does your computer's video-card have a DVI-output socket?
Does your LCD monitor have a DVI-input socket?
If 'yes' to both, then you need a DVI-to-DVI cable.

Monitor is black, power line flashing. Help

I assume you mean the power light is flashing? This means that there is aconnection problem or your video card/chip is faulty. Check both of the VGA cable (monitor & PC) are securely connected and there are no bad twists or bends in it, if so replace it. If both ends are secure and cable is o.k. then it is likely that the video card/chip is faulty and needs replacing. Best of luck. Ian.

Has power but no display, tried new cable, still no display.

Did this device ever work?
Do you have two Video connections on your computer?
I recently ran into a situation where there were two connections on the computer and one was DVI, one was VGA. The bios was set to Auto, which should have connected the Monitor to the port that was attached. However, it only worked when I removed the video card that was not in use..

Dvi-dvi connection to a ati radeon hd4670 does not recognise monitor,ie no display. Using a supplied adapter dvi-vga and a vga cable their ia screen display but in device manager it is a generic monitor?

Was there an installation disc that came with it in the package? Some monitors require software to be used. If you don't have the installation disc, you will most likely find the necessary software on the manufacturer's support site: ProLite Support Driver Download Site.

If the monitor software doesn't solve the problem, try using a different DVI cable. More often than not, these types of problems can be traced back to a faulty cable or port. If the DVI port on the monitor is bad, you will have to use the VGA port as you are now or replace the monitor.

If the DVI port on the video card is bad, you will need to replace it. A good way to test this is if you have another monitor with an available DVI port you can connect to the video card.

Hope this helps! Good luck!

Monitor says No signal digital

Is ether the monitor or video card uses both DVI or VGA port. There may be a switch on the graphic card that changes it from DVI to VGA, often outside the card.

Also is the computer monitor set to the right setting if it can use both VGA and DVI, if using DVI (of any type) it need to switch to digital, and if using VGA it need to be set to analog. This may be a physical switch or using the settings button. (see manual how to change them)


PS: VGA port is a blue D shaped port with 15 pin holes, and DVI is a white rectangle port with one port being a line.
