when i plug in my old monitor ( compaq 17") every thing works fine
ialso have have another pc running a geeforce 3 64mb which will run on my 19"
can some one please explain and help
Hello come across this before.
Once it was due to a fact i had not setup
in the bios what the primary card was to be used in the bios ie bus type.
Eg. Onboard, Agp or Pci-E
another is to make sure that in the bios you can switch off onboard graphics, on the motherboard.
And last one is if the radeon has two DVI ports for out put try switching from one to the other.
The only thing left is to say it`s the radeon not sending a sync signal at the right Volts
for the monitor to kick into full power up.
Some iiyama's have 2 inputs. One DVI and one analog. Also, some of the older ones used BNC connectors. What I'm getting at is make sure you have the right input selected in the monitor's menu.
Hope this helps....JF

Seems like the start-button or the wire connected to it is broken instead of the mobo. Basically when you press the start button you short the 2 cables together. Try replacing any shabby looking parts of these 2 cables, and if here aren't any, try to replace as much of the cables as you can. Just try some basic copper-wire, preferrably insulated, and that should do the trick.
I believe you are using a sata drive not ide, correct? The problem is that vista has built in drivers to support your boards sata/raid controller, winxp does not. to work around this you need to go here - http://www.abit.com.tw/page/en/download/download_driver_detail.php?pFILE_TYPE=Driver&pMAIN_TYPE=Motherboard&pTITLE_ON_SCREEN=KN8+Ultra&pSOCKET_TYPE=Socket%20939 Abit website. for your board - socket 939. KN8 ultra file called NVRaid Installation disk. click on picture, it will download the zip file. extract the files to an empty folder (create one). Then run RFDgen.exe program. It will create the floppy you will need. I hope you have a floppy drive, if not try a usb one. If it has a problem creating the floppy, copy the files in the folder floppydisk to your floppy. there is a readme.txt file in that folder as well that should help explain which option you should select when you install windows. So... once you have the floppy start your computer up with xp disk in and as the screen turns blue, you will see at the bottom of the screen a message - press F6 to select additional drivers. Do just that, a couple of times to be sure. then it changes to press F2, just sit back and wait. eventually it will come to a screen asking if you want to specify additional drivers. press S and the next screen will show you the drivers it found on the floppy. select the one for your configuration (can be changed in the bios). and then windows will load fine. this is necessary for all new systems with sata/raid installing xp. take care.
