boot loop when using on-board VGA/graphics

October 9, 2015 at 18:30:54
Specs: Windows 7
Hi, i'm about to sell my old GPU, So i removed my GPU on my motherboard, and tried to use my on-board vga graphics

but i'm stuck at asrock logo infinite loop non stop (see youtube video below)
i can stop it when press F2 to go BIOS

So if i press F2 fast, i can go and stay at BIOS, i tried to reset the bios settings, changed the graphics settings to ON-BOARD.
After that nothing has worked, So i put my GPU back again, and it worked again just fine!!

So it ONLY happens when i'm trying to use my on-board graphics[

I uploaded a video with what i am actually experiencing.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=K6ZdqxAsoSY

CPU: Intel G645
MOBO: Asrock h61m VS R2

Things that i have done:
*reset the bios by removing cmos battery
*remove all nvidia driver for my GPU
*set onboard graphics as PRIMARY on bios settings

I'm here now using my PC, because i put my graphics card again, I can use it just fine

I'm searching the net for hours :??:

please help me! Thank you.

If you switch the cable from the ext GPU to the internal GPU while you're in the OS, does it switch to the internal GPU, Perhaps ask for driver?

No from what I've red when you insert a dedicated graphics card, internal gpu is disabled automatically :\

With the graphics card installed, boot to Safe Mode, delete the driver, download and install the latest motherboard drivers, reboot to BIOS and reset it to onboard graphics and shut down. Remove the graphics card and try starting it again.

You have to be a little bit crazy to keep you from going insane.

To reset the BIOS, you have to unplug the power cord 1st, then use the clear-CMOS jumper. No need to remove the battery. Move the jumper in the clear position, wait a few seconds, then move it back. Boot up, immediately enter the BIOS, & then run thru ALL the settings, not just the graphics settings. Adjust as necessary to match your hardware configuration. BIOS defaults are never 100% correct.

I take it that windows never starts loading--it loops before that happens? If so it can't be a windows/drivers problem. How much shared memory is the on-board adapter using?

Oooh, look at all the pretty balloons.

How do you tell that it is not windows/drivers problem?

What they are saying is that if you cannot get to the advanced boot menu (F8) and/or Safe Mode or even the beginnings of the Loading Windows screen then the drivers are not loaded yet so it cannot be the drivers that are the issue. That is why I said to boot into Safe Mode, if you can get into Safe Mode and it loads, then you are running on the basic generic video driver and not the installed one so it might be possible at that point to remove the driver and proceed. If you cannot get that far then it is not the driver because it is pre-drivers loading so the recommendation that you reset the CMOS, Load Defaults and then immediately reset all settings to optimal settings and try it again. This is because the assumption is that some setting is not right and you may have overlooked it or cannot see it so resetting is a fresh start.

I can go to safemode with the graphics card installed.
i also tried resetting bios by removing cmos battery

Re # 6

If windows never starts to load then it can't be a windows problem. Just to make sure though, you can get to safe mode with the card but not the on-board? While in safe mode change the resolution to 800 x 600. In case it does start to boot into windows maybe the on-board adapter can't handle the resolution the card was set for (although continuous rebooting is not a symptom of that).

Removing the cmos battery is NOT the best way to clear the cmos. Follow the instructions in # 4.

Oooh, look at all the pretty balloons.

1- We need more information on this new problem.
2- Did you go into BIOS and reset all parameters to optimal settings manually as recommended above after removing CMOS battery/resetting CMOS? Do it if you have not.
3- Where are you reading this temperature and which one is it (CPU, Chipset, GPU, Hard Drive, etc.) Install HWMonitor and post all of the temps for a better picture (idle and after 15 minutes of use).
4- Please verify that all of your fans are still operating properly since when removing the CMOS battery or replacing it, you could have accidentally bumped something like a fan plug or moved a wire into the path of a fan blade, etc.
