Solved No Signal on Monitor, Please help

June 19, 2011 at 01:05:41
Specs: Windows XP
Hello All,

A friend has a problem with their pc, the was no display on the monitor and so I had a look and the problem was not with the monitor.

I have just bought a new AGP 8X graphics card and connected to the PC but I still get the no signal on the monitor. The PC appears to be booting with the lights and fan working alright.
Unfortunately I never got the chance to get into BIOS as the issue was the same with the onboard graphics and now same with the new graphics card.

Please you advice will is much needed. I don't know why it was given no signal with the onboard graphics and still doing the same after installing new graphics.

The motherboard I think is ASUS.

Thank you

well the onboard graphics is not working this means that ur motherboard's graphics chip has a problem there is no way to fix this except by getting a new motherboard

Are you sure the motherboard's AGP slot is compatible with AGP 8x?
Some older boards only work with AGP x4 cards.

You can get away with putting a x4 card into x8 slot, but not vice versa.

we need to know system specs like what is ur make\model of ur motherboard we know its ASUS whats its model? what abt ram, cpu and the name of the video card?
also make sure u have the correct power supply installed in ur system. did u try connecting it to another monitor? check the cables if they properly connected.
if connecting to another monitor and checking the cables did not help, then try the graphics card on another pc that has an agp bus. if it worked than ur motherboard is the problem

I ave opened up the computer to get a few of the spec. The motherboard is ASROCK range, I can not get to find out the processor and my friend doesn't know, apologies on that one.

RAM: 512DDR and 256 crossair
New graphic card is GeFORCE 6200

@pip22 the slot is definately AGP 8X, it is boldly written by the slot.

I have checked the connection and everything is fine, The motherboard lights up when it is turn on and the network card installed is also fine, which makes me think power to the motherboard seems to be ok.

I can not get to see the BIOS or anything as there was no display on the monitor when the onoard graphics is used.

I also tried with either the 512 and 256 RAM to check but still no display,

Sorry for the minimal spec but I hope its enough to get some help on this.

Thanks for your comment.

@Toxict51. Thanks for your reply. I have tried the graphics card in another computer, and as you suggested, it works well.

I am taking your suggestion as it been a problem with the AGP BUS
On the side though how likely is it to have all options of graphics damaged, I mean the onboard graphics does not work and now the other option is not working too.
