Hello,Built a new computer last year using the Intel DG45ID MB with Intel 8400 processor. Works great! Bought a Radeon 4350 Graphics card to install, followed the installation instructions which said before installing new card, I needed to uninstall display drivers for onboard G45 chipset before installing new card and new drivers from CD. After uninstalling onboard drivers and installing new card, turned puter on, standard startup beep, but NO VIDEO! plugged cable back into onboard connector..NO Video. Removed new card and turned computer on without it...NO video. I am extremely frustrated because I'm not sure I did anything wrong; I followed installation instructions carefully; Monitor works fine on other computer; NO monitor works on Intel board or radeon board on VISTA computer. Any troubleshooting suggestions?? PLEASE??!!
does your computer ever overheat? also, what monitor are you using and how old is it?
Never has overheated. Built it ~18 mos ago with BIG box with 4 fans with the intent of putting a lot of stuff in it. Currently have 2 7200 RPM SATA drives plus multifunction optical card. No cards other than MoBo.
Monitor is a 6 month old Hannspree 24" that works fine on three other computers. I bought the Radeon card for better performance and multiple monitors.
How do I "start my computer but not in VISTA"? I've tried booting from the VISTA install disk to repair VISTA, but I have no screen...can't see where the mouse is...don't know what happens when I hit ENTER...nothing! Very frustrating. I thought that when I removed the new video card and went back to the onboard graphics the video would return, but I have a black monitor that says "No input signal, check video cable."
I've tried hitting F1, F5 or F8 repeatedly while it's booting, hoping to get to the BIOS, but still have a black screen.
Microcenter has a new Mobo for $64, so that's my next option today, I think.
there should be a jumper on the MOBO to reset the BIOS. make sure you unplug the power cable be for you reset it. The jumper is right by your battery. Just move it over to cover PIN 2 and 3 and then back to PIN 1 and 2.
Mine was video to the monitor was always there with my H81M-E33 V2 mobo but not from D-Sub as expected. Connected main monitor (trying to do a dual monitor setup) to DL-DVI-I output as figured from tested successfully with an old Acer/Vista machine (where I accessed the BIOS and set the PCI/VGA Palette Snoop to Enabled and upon restart found the secondary monitor had video on the DL-DVI-I output. Installed the drivers and enabled the second monitor enabled on the D-Sub when this should have been the main output).
I'm good now. Either the graphics card (GT610 or N610GT-MD2GD3/LP) was set incorrect as default or instructions were wrong because it stated "3. Replace the case and connect the VGA port and the monitor with the VGA cable."
