No video

By sunshinenews2000-web ·
No video, I have installed a PCI video card (tested).
I disabled built-in AGP by setting J11 jumper to 1-2 (what I think is
1-2). I have installed new memory (not tested) and hard drive. There is no audible post. The monitor,keyboard and mouse works OK on another PC and the CD-rom drive has power. No activity from HD. I unplugged and held power switch for 30 secs and I just removed battery. I will replace it in 24 hrs. I my motherboard fried?
Please help. Thanks

Are you sure?

by Toivo Talikka In reply to No video

I hope your jumper is the correct one. Usually the built-in video is managed from the settings in BIOS where you can specify which one is the primary source for video. I have had to turn off the built-in video and install a PCI video card a number of times when working around the problem where the on-board video has gone haywire.

If you have a working PC, test the hard drive there. If you can test the component parts of the PC one by one, you should be able to isolate the problem.

no jumperr for the agp card.Its controlled in the bios.There is a jumper for the bios so basically your defaulting back to the on board card.Leave the jumper and do it from the bios

My dilema is I have no video, therefore I cannot access the BIOS. The jumper setting for AGP came from Emachine web site. There is an option to "Disable built-in AGP" and "Enable built-in AGP (Default)". Since my problem was no video, I thought I'd try a tested PCI video card, thinking when I installed the card in the PCI slot, it would automatically disable integreted video. Still no video, so I tried the jumper settings. To no avail.

bad board

by CG IT In reply to No Video

if you tried a known good PCI graphics card and that didn't work, tried a known good AGP card and that didn't work, if the board has a built in VGA display and that doesn't work

then chances are the board is bad.
