NT4 Video

By rcoolman ·
I changed the mainboard in my NT4 workstation. Everything seems to have gone fine & new drivers work, but for some reason everytime we boot, the display settings page comes up. We can do the test and hit ok, but next time its back. Any ideas? The screen looks fine - whatever resolution we set seems to work. It just keeps coming up any way. I have tried a different video card and two different mainboards. All the same. Any ideas?

Just as a double check, have you;

Installed the latest version of the AGP mini-port driver for the motherboard?

Installed DirectX? At least the version required by the video card.

Installed the latest video driver?

Installed the correctmonitor driver?

Also, in BIOS settings;

First display type set to the correct slot AGP/PCI

AGP apperature set to at least the size of the video RAM. (I try for between 2X card memory, and 1/2 system RAM)

Video BIOS shadow disabled (try both ways)

Well, there is no AGP driver for the board for NT4, but we even tried a PCI vid card. NT4 won't support much in the way of directx either. We did try the latest driver. The Bios display first was set correctly, but there weren't any settings for aperture or shadow. Thanks anyway.

AS always make sure you have the latest NT4 patches.

Whic is the latest one you have installed?
Next check if you have latest video drivers installed.

Next check if you have uncheck anything that makes windows remember the last window postionwhile the computer shut down. For this I would use SYSTEM MECHANIC at iolo.com to scan for registry corruption so do a chkdsk first then iolo.

Your problem could be little or big so I hope you have backed up your system to a networked drive or something.


Your disply settings also jsut could have been corrupted..... again reinstall the disply drivers.
How old is the motherboard vs the video card....
What brand computer is this?

NT patches and driver are up to date. System mechanic didn't help except it reinforces our ssupicion that settings aren't being saved - I suspect a permissions/policies problem. The system is whitebox, the board and video are both new. We have tried multiple vid cards, so the drivers have been reinstalled several times. Thanks.

Also check in CMOS setup for Plug n Play OS = NO and Assign IRQ to VGA = YES.
