PC Chips M758LMR onboard video out
Has anyone ever seen the onboard video on a PC Chips M758LMR board go out. The PC boots up, and I am not getting any error beeps during the bootup, but the onboard video isn't working. Should I try installing a Video card to see if that works.
have you tried to reinstall the drivers. I asume it is starting in standard vga mode? what led up to its not working? the no beep error kinda suggests the computer thinks it is working! a little more detail might be helpful.
It isnt even coming up in VGA mode. I can't see anything. I know it isn't the monitor, because I have since tried the monitor on another computer and it works fine. I have it on a surge supressor, so I wouldn't think it would have been a spike that only took out part of the motherboard?
Oh yeah, you asked about what lead up to it not working. I am not sure. All was well, and I went on vacation. And when I came back and powered it on, the video was out.
gee,s ya gota hate that. anyway, i am no wizzard, but i think if I had access to a vid card i would give it a shot. at the least it would probably boot to vga mode and you could try some diagnostics. sorry i cant be more helpfull. ward
check your bios for all the video card setup info and make sure its enabled, etc. - turn the machine off and on a few times - see if it saves the cmos settings you change, might even need a new cmos battery because you seem to have had the problem after leaving the machine off for awhile?
not sure about that board but depending on bios you can either disable onboard video and throw any pci video card in a slot, or depending on the machine, just putting one in will disable the onboard video when it boots up
good luck and let us know if this helps.
