Actually thats not necessarily true, as you can set the default to boot from motherboard anyways, which brings up a good point. If you do have a video card, and onboard graphics, try the onboard graphics connector. kajabla a b C Monitor December 11, 2011 12:55:03 AM By "boot from motherboard" do you mean use onboard video? Yes, you could do that with a graphics card in, but you'd have to have changed that setting. Anonymous a b C Monitor December 11, 2011 12:57:20 AM Yes i meant that. But im saying that because maybe something happened and his bios reset itself with different settings, or wtv story which may let that happen Its not working now, so you never know!
