ATI Radeon 9000Pro 256MB Video graphics card

Ati Radeon 9000 pro video card
April 6, 2011 at 09:55:27
Specs: Windows XP
I had an issue with my mboard (478 w/DDR & AGP), while I was getting it fixed I used another mboard and my monitor worked perfectly. I just got my original mboard back and set it up and for some reason now my monitor is working but I'm getting a black screen. Before I had my mboard fixed this was all working properly. Is there anything I may have done wrong setting it up? I set it up properly but not sure why my monitor was fine before I changed the mboard back. Is there anything I can do to fix this?

How was your MOBO fixed exactly, component level repair on that MOBO or did they just swap it?

It could be a simple connection issue - did you DISable your onboard video and ENable your AGP video in the BIOS?

Re: "my monitor is working but I'm getting a black screen." That doesn't make any sense. You need to explain & differentiate the functionality and troubleshooting you have done w/ your monitor and your video card.

If it's NOT a connection or settings (in BIOS etc) issue, can your monitor can be tested on another PC to makes sure it works?

Can your video card can be tested and be shown to function on another PC?

MOOOOooove! OH and you're welcome!

Thank you for getting back to me about this issue, I greatly appreciate all your help. I had 3 capacitors replaced on my mboard. Unfortunately, I don't have another computer to try this monitor on but what I meant by the monitor works but I'm getting a black screen is that when I connect the monitor to the tower the monitor turns on but goes to standby mode almost immediately, but when I turn the tower on it's not turning on, it just stays in stanby mode. I'm sorry I was not clear enough in my explaination of my issue, but this is the first time I've ever used this type of help, so I'm trying my best and really appreciate your patience with me.

When I originally swaped out the mboard I did not change any of my settings, I just swapped it out. The other mboard that I got for it was AGP as well, just not as good of a board as my original was. I disconnected my mboard connections and reconnected them and the monitor turned on for a short time and then the whole computer froze. When I tried to reset the computer the monitor would not come back out of standby mode again.

I'm not sure how to check my BIOS because I cannot get the monitor to come out of standby mode.

Thank you very much once again for all your help, I look forward to hearing any ideas you may have.

Thank you very much for all your help, I really do greatly appreciate everything you have helped me with. I took the connections appart again and blew them all out with a can of air and it seems to be working at the moment. I guess it's just a connection issue. I hope this time it will continue to work and I did finally get to check my BIOS and it is set up for the AGP.

Thank you very much.

Thank you very much for your advice. Sorry I didn't see the link to reply this way so I just posted replies and now I'm back to the same issue again today. As soon as the monitor goes into standby mode it doesn't want to come out of it unless I take the card out and blow it out with a can of air again. Is this telling me there is a problem with the mboard?

Thanks again.

I would disable ALL power save, standby, hibernation etc settings on your computer and your monitor for testing.

Sometimes the monitor itself has a power save or blank feature that is set. You need to go into the OSD (On screen display) settings in your monitor to make sure those are all off.

How long does your video work after pulling/reseating it?

MOOOOooove! OH and you're welcome!
