| Thats funny, i did think it was odd that someone mentioned the wattage needs for a vid card, even though i did mention in the same thread that EVERYTHING is disconnected except primaries. i want to know if this Mobo has a setting in the bios for auto detect or can it be disabled, i ask as i think i had seen this option in the BIOS in another Mobo some time ago, maybe it was for something else in bios, no matter, i need to know as if he did disable onboard video, and he forgot, then i tell him it is the Mobo, and it is not, then i will feel like crap. |
I want to make sure the Mobo and PS are ok, then i will check vid card, memory has passed all tests as well, so keep that in mind friends. I thank anyone who can help no matter what age, as long as thier heart and knowlege is in the right place.
hey Compgeke, are you a gamer and what vid card do you use little guy?
The graphics setting is for Windows, not for the POST or BIOS display. i understand that this is true, but there are a few things that the bios control, like shared memory for onbaord vid, right? I think i will make this simple, look below for simple questions friends.
1) does a Biostar TA780G M2+ have a setting in bios to ignore onboard vid and look for PCIe card?
2) could it possibly be the northbridge processor?
3) is there a lead (power output) from the pwer supply that helps onboard video?
I just want to start with trouble shooting the mainboard and PS, then i will work out from there. i believe you should start with the heart first, then work out to extremidies, if the MObo is fried, then he will just have to scrap it and find a nice one.
i hope no one takes any offence to my responces as every time i respond, it is with i silly smile, no matter how trivial, hehe. i might seem blunt, but i have to be direct and some might take as rudeness, and for that, i am sorry.
Mike out.. for a bit. :^)
