Preferred Solution: No Display output after disabling video driver on motherboard.

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

A: No Display output after disabling video driver on motherboard.

Welcome to TSG.
If you didn't previously told the computer to have dual display, meaning allowing an external monitor, it will be hard to do anything and you might have to install everything from the original disks, unless you have some kind of a networking already set up on that computer and you could access your files from the network to save your files

I had trouble with my Radeon Video Card, so I uninstalled it from my Windows XP Home system. I then had the default system VGA display working OK. The problem is, I stupidly disabled this in the "current hardware configuration" setting, and now when I turn my system on, it boots up just find but I have no display. How can I fix it if I can't see anything?

A:No Display after disabling video driver

When the computer turns on get the Boot Menu up by pressing F8 just before or as the XP logo comes on the screen. From this menu select VGA Mode or Safe Mode and re-enable the driver.

Okay, here's what I want to do. I want to send video output to a Plasma in my family room and also have output to the computer monitor in the adjacent office. I have the option of using either VGA or DVI to either monitor, so I can use a video card that has dual VGA/DVI outputs. Or, I can buy a separate PCI video card. Right now I have an ATI All-in-Wonder 7500.

Am I better off to get a new video card with dual monitor output or have two separate video cards. If the former, what video cards do you recommend? I know I've seen recommendations for the 9600 Pro, which seems to have dropped significantly in price? I'd like to stay with ATI as I've always used that.

I have a ibm 2137 e84 it has built in video card...i tried to put in a new one... cant find where to disable old one and it wont run both. I am not computer literate but a friend showed me how to get in bios but we could not find old card to disable it...thanks for any help out there Zoren

A:disabling video card in motherboard

Go to start/settings/control panel/system/device manager/display adapter tab, click on it to expand and select the onboard video, select properties, find the check box to disable in this hard ware profile, check it, hit okay, shutdown, put the new card in and try it. Make sure bios is set to boot pci or agp depending on what card you are installing
If that doesn't work then there must be a jumper on the motherboard somewhere to disable it.

Hey im getting into PC's building. My friend gave me a older computer he had lying around (without a CPU or heatsink). Just wanted to know if i could assess the bios without having the CPU in the motherboard. It does have a GPU built on the motherboard. It powers on and all the components start working but still doesn't output. Didn't know if there was a trick I didn't know about.

A:motherboard won't output video

OEM PC's (ie: Dell, HP, etc.) require a power supply upgrade for addon video card usage. Size will depend upon your hardware specs. Min size would be 550W. And quality is more important than size. Corsair or Seasonic.

The reboots would seem to indicate a power issue (ie: low power output).

Possible motherboard issue? I ve checked the seating of the cards all good but along the way I found a new symptom No power comes from any of the usb ports I think its a shorted mother board but before I drop the cash and order one I d like a second opinion from someone more knowlegeable than I in the subject of computers I appreciate any and all input on the subject Brandonha nbsp

A:No video output. Possible motherboard issue?

The CPU heatsink fan should be connected to the CPU power connector on the motherboard. It should be labeled as such. If the motherboard doesn't detect the CPU fan connected to that connector, I believe it is supposed to shut down to avoid damage.

No video output on iGPU or GPU on Desktop. Motherboard not posting. GPU fan spins at 100%. I've tried removing all RAM sticks and tried each one by itself. I've removed all hard drives. I've reset GPU and tried without GPU. I feel like I've tried everything at this point. It's a new power supply. I've tried two other power supplies as well.

I can't get Dual BIOS to kick in, either (no switch on this board so I have to use the power cycling trick).

Is there a way to get the real-time output from a video camera onto a computer monitor without having to use a computer in between?

To be clear, all that will be present will be a video camera, a computer monitor, the necessary connecting cords

Hi there! I was plugging back in a Dazzle DVC100, a video game capture device, when I got a blue screen. This has happened to me before on a previous computer, so I wasn't too surprised.

Upon reboot, my monitor couldn't pick up any signal from my video card's HDMI or DVI output. My OS boots fine, so I know it's not a hard drive problem. I was able to use my Mobo's VGA output and load BIOS and Windows. Therefore I'm led to believe it's some sort of problem with my Video Card. I receive error codes A2 and 9C upon booting through the CMOS debug. Any suggestions as to what I should do?

Elsewhere I had a question about installing a PCIe video card to a failing
motherboard with onboard video.

Before shutting down, I disabled the installed driver at the Radeon entry.
Previous expectation was that the HD would boot to 640 base video until
a new driver could be installed.

What went wrong?

Is it possible to recover from this error from a CD or will I have to lose
the data?

Repair install stopped at the same place probably looking for video. I've tried everything I can think of including loading the HD on another machine, asking for Safe Mode and then would turn the driver back on. No good doing that either.

When it ran in trace mode loading Safe Mode options I did not save the
line at which it stopped.

This is in Win 7. Would a driver reinstall from the factory CD salvage my disk?

What would anyone else do if the "Disable" option were engaged?

A:Disabling a Radeon Video driver in Win7 will not boot to the OS

How do you know that your onboard video not working.
Have to test with another computer, for your monitor.
Or have you get another monitor to check if your computer working or not.

Also you did not indicate is monitor or TV you are connected to.
Some monitor do fail at times, &or monitor setting is wrongly set.
Also if the cable pin is out &or broken, bent, it may affect the video.

For the PCIe video card it will have a copy of CD with drivers included for various OS.

It is not right to delete the driver, as normal it would not affect if you install another driver.
Additional drivers may not affect the system, it indicate as not connected only.

I have Vista 64 installed on a system with a Powercolor X1950 Pro. Everything works fine until I install the ATI driver. If I do, when I restart the computer, I lose video on both of the card's outputs, but I think Vista is still running fine. If I restart in safe mode and uninstall the driver, everything is fine again. I ran Windows update before installing the driver, but nothing changed. I'm sure I'm using the 64-bit driver. I originally had 32-bit XP installed and everything worked fine after installing the driver. I've searched for possible solutions online, but haven't found much that was useful.
Any ideas?

A:No video output after installing ATI driver

The only thing I can come up with based on some other threads is that maybe I need to install the general vista vga driver first. I kept skipping that because I knew I had the ATI driver and because don't remember doing it on XP. Does anyone know if this could be related to my problem?
I'm in the middle of reinstalling XP now, so I don't want to stop and reinstall Vista without knowing if it's a likely fix.

A:Help! I lost display on my PC monitor! video card or motherboard?

first off dustin, welcome to techspot.

It does sound like a video problem...

Before we can help you out..we need a bit more info.

First off, have you made anymjor changes to you PC? Or have their been any problems before this happend? (flickering screen etc etc)

Replacing a video card is not hard at all, but we need to determine if your PC used an actual video card, or the video output is built into your Motherboard.

If you could tell us you PC make, Model, and some simple hardware specs, including you motherboard, and video card (if you use one)

If you dont know how to get them (specs), dont panic, its not that hard. You should consult this post found here

Post back with your specs, and we can go from there....

Good luck

When my machine comes up the display flash to black occasionally and not everything on the screen displays when it is up (for example, I can see the login area, but not the box to type into) there are also stray lines on the screen. I thought it was a hardware problem. However, when I boot safe mode, everything works fine.

I've tried installing the latest drivers from Nvidia (the video card is an MX4 series) and have also reinstalled the OS. Neither of which worked.

I'm fairly confident this is a hardware issue, but I don't know which piece of hardware is the problem. Does anyone know for certain if this sounds more like a video card issue, a motherboard issue, or something entirely different. I do not have an extra video card to plug in though I may go that route to avoid having to replace the motherboard unnecessarily. Thoughts?

A:video driver for motherboard

You need to find out what the chipset the board has- the bigger chips, like Intel, VIA, Ali, Sis, etc....your manual should have all this information. Isnt there more to the make/model of the board? The video most likely is onboard AGP...drivers available from board's website, no problem getting them, just need more info unless that's it for the board's ID and I do not realize it...if you cant find any more info, you can download Belarc Advisor from small free hardware and software ID tool- will give us info needed to get a driver.
If you have just loaded win9x into a system, you also need to obtain the chipset drivers right now- did a disk come with the computer /board to install these AGP,USB, etc drivers?

My screen on this laptop (Dell Inspiron 1520, Windows 10, 4gb max memory) had gone virtually dark, in the right light you could faintly see the screen being active. Without the availability of the screen, I utilized the external monitor output AND the SVGA option output to 2 different flat screen TV's which both options worked for months! Then that stopped, yet you can see and hear the hard drive working in reaction to my interactivity?. I promptly replaced the graphics card! THAT DID NOTHING FOR NATIVE OR EXTERNAL VIDEO OUTPUT!!! Three years ago I replaced the mainboard which afterwards worked awesomely, now I'm stumped. I truly love this little machine, what am I overlooking?! Can someone shed some light on this scenario?!

I have an S-Video port on my computer and I am going to run it to my 46" Projection TV.

What I want to know is how to switch b/t S-Video out and the VGA out so I can switch between my monitor and TV - is there a keyboard combination I have to hit (like on a function key on a laptop)?

I will only be viewing video files on my TV (so it won't be too often that I use the S-Video out port).

I remember doing this a while back, but it seems like I had to do a restart and unhook my VGA connection to get the S-Video feed to work - there must be an easier way.

Thanks ALL!!!

A:Switch b/t VGA Monitor output and S-Video Output

Depending on the card, I am personally better versed with ATI, but I know my Nvidia also, you can set up a dual display and set the S video to play all movies at full screen, and through the control disable the TV when not in use.

Was watching a youtube video (which, incidentally, I'd watched two seconds before with no problems) and my computer suddenly flashed to a black screen, then recovered. After it did so, the video was reduced to a little green banner, and I saw a pop-up with a triangulated exclamation point on my toolbar, the said something about the AMD graphics driver having to restart itself.

The warning log reads "display driver amdkmdap stopped responding and has successfully recovered".

A one-time glitch or should I do a deeper search?

It may just be a one-time glitch. Double check you have updated drivers for your graphics card.

Additionally, making sure your Adobe Flash plugin (what powers Youtube videos) is up to date wouldn't hurt either:

I may be new here, but still trust me! Anyway, on with solving your issues!

If you are overclocking your system, please return all overclocked components to their stock speeds. If the BSOD's are found not to be caused by the overclock, you can re-overclock the components once we have finished the diagnostics


I'd recommend uninstalling these programs, they can cause issues.

eXtreme Tuner is overclocking software and can lead to system instability and BSOD's.
Anti Virus?
I have noticed that you do not have an anti-virus product installed on your PC. Please install Microsoft Security Essentials and scan your PC. Then install and scan your computer with Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware. DO NOT START THE FREE TRIAL. This will remove any viruses you may have caught.
BSOD Analysis

The BSOD dumps you gave me do not give a definitive cause for your BSOD's.

As a result I recommend you check your hardware for issues. Please run Memtest86+ to check your RAM. Download here and either burn the .iso to a CD or use the "Auto-installer for USB Key. The USB key is the easier. Memtest86+ - Advanced Memory Diagnostic Tool. Once the bootable USB key is made or a bootable CD created, boot from it. Memtest will start automatically. Let it run for 6-8 passes overnight as described in the tutorial. If errors are found, test each stick of RAM in each motherboard slot. The RAM stick or the motherboard slot could be at fault. Detailed tutorial here: Memory Diagnostics
Also check your HDD for errors using Seatools and chkdsk. Download and create a bootable version of the Seatools for DOS program as described here.

For check disk, follow this below steps:
Click Start -> Computer
Right click on the disk you would like to check -> Properties
Tools tab -> Error Checking "Check Now"
[*When the dialogue box opens, put a tick in both boxes click start
If a pop up box appears titled "Windows can't check the disk while it's in use", press "Schedule Disk Check" and reboot your computer
GFX Card/DirectX
Some crashes blame DirectX and/or your graphics card. As DirectX is built into windows, it can indicate file corruption. It could also mean you have graphics card issues.

Please run the sfc /scannow checker to check and repair important system files. To do so, follow the below steps.
Open a command prompt window as an administrator. To do so, click Start and type cmd. Don't press enter!. Then right click the top entry(cmd.exe) and then "Run as Administrator"
Type the following command - sfc /scannow (Note - there is a space between the sfc and the /scannow)
If it reports that Windows Resource Protection did not find any integrity violations, then all is well. If it attempts to repair files, attach the CBS.log file to your next post. It is located here C:\Windows\Logs\CBS\CBS.log.
Then, follow the steps for Diagnosing basic problems with DirectX. If that proves unsuccessful and doesn't solve the BSOD's, then try to reinstall your graphics card drivers by following these steps.
Download the drivers you want for your display card(s)
Click Start Menu
Click Control Panel
Click Uninstall a program
Uninstall the NVIDIA Graphics Driver (this should uninstall all NVIDIA software and drivers)

A:Setup Display with Standard VGA Driver - Video Card Installation Error

The Radeon 7000 drivers are not compatible with Windows 7; that video card is ancient and doesn't support Windows 7 fully. The integrated Radeon 2100 is massively newer and better then this card, especially since this card uses a PCI interface compare to a modern PCI-Express interface that video cards now come in.

Also if you got a compatible graphics card, you'd want to disable the graphics card in the BIOS rather then in Windows as that will fully turn it off and return the 128MB of system memory its currently using.

Hello everyone, I have a problem that is driving me crazy. I am able to access all my channels when viewing them on my Windows 7 laptop using Media Center. When I hook up a HDMI cable to the laptop and connect it to my TV I get the following error.."display driver error the video playback device does not support playback of protected content". I have updated the video card drivers and this issue still persists. Does anyone have any ideas to solve this. I am using a HDHomerun Prime and this is the only way I have to watch live TV on my TV. Thanks in advance for everyone's help

A:Windows Media Center display driver error the video playback device does not support

"display driver error the video playback device does not support playback of protected content"

Infers the content/media that you are playing is protected and/or the HDCP handshake is not taking place. This is likely a hardware issue. The video chipset (ie: HDMI port) or the TV does not support HDCP.

Try viewing a different channel or content.

Since I do not want to purchase an HDMI to DVI cable to play sound through my monitor, I was wondering how to redirect the audio to play through my motherboard so I can hear sound again.

I'm even considering buying a different brand of card because this stupid thing has created so many problems.

Hi, I have a PCI(not PCI-E) Graphics card in an old P3 system. BIOS is not automatically disabling my onboard graphics after inserting the discrete card. So i had to manually edit the PCI configuration registers to use the discrete graphics card. When the same card is installed in a modern system, the integrated graphics is automatically disabled by the BIOS and the discrete card becomes the primary display adapter.

The difference between the two cases is that the modern system's BIOS changes the integrated graphics controllers' device subclass register's value from 00(0h) to 80(0h) at Offset 0A(0h). But this register is read only and i'm unable to edit it so as to simulate the same in my old system. Can someone help me out?

If not however or maybe in spite of these settings correctly set, it doesn't work and if there is no other problem its a video acceleration problem which you can force by going to Display settings/Settings/Advanced/Troubleshoot and set the hardware acceleration to about 50% first and restart the player and see if it works. If not, set it all the way off and it should work if your system is capable and has no other problem. You will lose some other minor functionality in the video subsystem so its only a temporary solution. Definitely see if the Control center settings solve the problem first.

Hi everyone.
I am recently having problem with my PC.
My PC in not showing output on monitor when i start the PC.
but after pushing the restart button the PC restarts and output is displayed.
i don't know what is the problem. See my system specs in profile.
sometimes i have to restart twice to bring output.
I have dual boot with Ubuntu and windows 7 ultimate, so I push restart when it reaches the grub menu.
My PC's boot up itself takes more than 25 seconds till it reaches grub menu.
Please can somebody help me?
even if someone have any idea about the problem please share.

A:[Audio Problem] AsRock 970 Pro3 R2.0 Motherboard No Output

I just got my hands onto a New Computer something around a Week Ago, it's meeting all my standarts for the Price. But My problem is that it seemingly doesn't output any sound.Click to expand...

as a new machine without audio and all thats been tried to resolve the issue, i'd be thinking of getting in touch with the vendor and manufacturer.

audio should be available whether the machine required driver updates or not. but some obvious changes can sometimes be overlooked. also, sound would be emitted without a headset.

retracing the obvious to see if any setting has been inadvertently toggled. go to control panel and go through the menu settings to see if mute has been checked and keep the music playing so it will alert you if anything changes. go into windows sound settings and select default output as speakers

could try looking to see if your audio is enabled in Bios. make sure you have Realtek as your main audio device.

I have a motherboard that will boot into windows (I memorized how to get to notepad and print) and did that test and it prints, but I can't see anything on the monitor. I have tried different video cards and monitors but for whatever reason this board won't initialize video, no video card, ISA, PCI or AGP sends video to the monitor. I have tried different PSU's, ram and cpus but all end up with the same result unit beeps accesses the floppy and starts booting without video.

I'm not sure what the problem is, for now I'm declaring this thing dead unless something amazing happens. Any ideas? I think this must be a bios issue but I'm not sure if changing it would help, what kind of hardware failure could cause this? It would have to be VERY specific.

Foolishly, I accidentally changed my display settings (right mouse click on desktop) from "Monitor" to "Digital Display" and now I cannot see anything!

Obviously, I dont have access to the desktop to change it back again, so wondering what my options are....

I can see the system boot up, display the windows logo, etc, but when it should show me the windows desktop, the monitor just goes black and i see nothing.

I can boot up in safe mood, and see the desktop, but not when i boot up normally. Is there anything I can change in "safe mode" that will enable me to change things back?

please help!!!

i would have thought that you can change your display settings in safe mode back to original settings. by right clicking on blank screen.

Hi everyone, I came here today because I have an extremely frustrating problem that I can't find a solution for.

I recently ordered and received one PCI-e Multi I/O card: a Moschip MCS9901CV-AA(EoL);

it's a PCI-e (x1) card to add a Parallel port to my computer.

Problem is, when I add this component to my PC, the monitor will stop displaying anything. However, the video card, a NVIDIA GeForce 8600 GT, is still turning on.

When I take the component out, the monitor will display things normally.
Also I already installed the drivers for the PCI-e card, but it didn't do anything to help the problem.

I'm running Windows XP Professional Version 2002 SP2 32-bit

System specs:

CPU Intel® Pentium® D CPU 2.80GHz
Cpu Socket Socket 775 LGA
3GB of RAM

it's a Dell XPS 400 with no prior Parallel Ports.

Thanks to anyone reading.

Hi guys, I have a problem with my monitor output changing when I play games. I only have one monitor connected via hdmi to my video card. It's sli. It seems to be set as the only monitor in all the settings but for some reason if I start a game the display output changes so I have to pull the connector out and change it to the second connector for the display to work again. When I close the game, I have to switch it back.

I had this same problem back in Vista but somehow it stopped, I am running Windows 7 now.

Does anyone know how I can solve this? Thanks.

I resumed my PC from standby this morning, and the display output is now so dark, I can hardly see what's on the screen. I don't think the problem lies with the monitor (a new Hyandai 19" LCD) since the on screen controls are still bright and the VGA connection from my Mac still works fine. I have restarted the computer multiple times, as well as unplugged and replugged the DVI. I haven't yet tried using the VGA connection from the pc. I have an Abit IT7 mobo, P4 2.53, 512 MB, ATI 9700 Pro, Win XP SP2. Anyone have any idea what might be going on? My first thought was maybe the bad graphics card was going bad, but now I'm wondering whether the proble might be a bad mobo or RAM. Has anyone experienced anything like this?Thanks for any help you can provide!

My problem with the card is my S-Video TV out was working fine with my Samsung HDTV until up to half a year ago or more The S-V TV output just stopped working no signal no windows logo when I boot up the computer nothing So I thought it could be the cable but the cable works when I use my laptop to my HDTV with the same cable I also thought it could be my S-V TV input on my HDTV but that wasn t the issue either for it worked when I used the my laptop to hook up to my HDTV In my ATI Display Settings screen Catalyst Interface the system does not recognize ATI Output no Pro functions 9700 but DVI - display the S-V TV output its shaded when before it did So then I tried to hook up the DL DVI output on the Radeon to my HDTV with a Dual Link DL DVI-I Male Cable to ATI Component Video Adapter and set the necessary switch settings on the adapter to only enable the modes my HDTV supports i p i I hooked it up this way because my Samsung HDTV does not support computer signals with its DL DVI connector hence why I went the adapter route so with this I plug that in to my HDTV via its Component inputs and still a blank screen and I followed the instructions to the letter as to how to hook these up The weird thing is in the Catalyst ATI Display Settings when I am hooked up via DVI the card recognizes that but I still can t get it to ATI 9700 Pro - DVI Output functions but no display display an image on the HDTV even using custom resolutions such as x i hz or hz x p ATI 9700 Pro - DVI Output functions but no display hz or hz x i hz or hz or just using default resolution settings I have tried uninstalling the drivers for my card I have the latest re-installing them as per the instructions when ATI 9700 Pro - DVI Output functions but no display hooking up via DVI interface and shut my computer off then turned on my HDTV then turned on the computer and still did not get a picture on the screen whatsoever yet as I said before in the Catalyst Display Settings the system sees that the DVI interface is hooked up to a Component Video Connection unlike with the S-V TV output where that output doesn t see anything period shaded Why isn t my S-V TV out not working Why does the card see the component video connection but display no picture on the HDTV Is my S-Video TV Out FRIED and in turn it effects the DVI input enough so that the card can see its connected but can t display a picture maybe because possibly something is shorted out Any help would be greatly appreciated Thanks alot nbsp

wht should i do???? could it be a power supply issue?? and shud i try removing the small coin like battery and if i shud,then wht happens when i remove that battery and how long is it to be removed for?

A:PC stopped booting up, no display output

What power supply is it? (company, model, wattage,)

Most low quality power supplies will have little or no transient filter, which filter the incoming AC power and suppresses any voltage spikes. Most of the time when the power is cut the voltage spikes a bit.

Try removing your CMOS battery and you suggested and leave it out for about 10 minutes, and make sure you psu is unplugged and discharged.

You can discharge it by pushing the power button immediately after you unplug it, the lights and fans should flash for a second, then go off.

A:Laptop, VGA only output, and Multi Display problems.

Hello Gisenu, welcome to the Seven Forums.

If I understood your post correctly, your displays are working exactly as they should in Win7.

You find all display options from Screen Resolution tool by right clicking desktop and choosing it. When desktop (display) is extended, if you want to use just one display you have to first make it your main display and then disconnect the one you don't need:

When using duplicated desktop and you want to use only one display, you have to choose Show desktop only on X, where X is the number of display:

If desktop is duplicated, screen resolution is same on both displays. In that case the resolution can not be bigger than maximum resolution on the display which has smaller maximum resolution.

When using extended desktop or when using just one display, resolution can be different on all displays

Hope this is not too confusing...

Hi there,,
Yesterday I bought a new Asus P4R800-VM motherbaord. Thats the one with the ATI 9200 intergrated graphics. So I install and plug everything in as with the old motherboard but when I switched on the PC everything seemed to be fine. All the fans were AGP ATI X800 card was running the DVD-rom and CdRW was working..the motherboard's light is on to indicate power...all but the display. My monitor has a screen which says that there is no signal from the PC! So I plugged the video cable into the onbaord VGA slot but still no image! I have 500w power supply...could it be that the problem is that there isn't enough power? Also I have one PC2100 memory stick and P4 2gig.

Anyhelp will be appreciate seeing that I can't even see the boot screens!

A:P4R800-VM mothernboard -- No display output to screen!!

If you have transferred the HDD from the other PC, and the new PC has different hardware then thats problem #1.

Unsure if it is your main problem, but its usually futile to do this as when the new motherboard tries to boot, it gets force-fed all the wrong drivers.

Windows does not like that and will usually halt the process to avaiod damage to the devices.

Is this the case with your setup? Needs a new install of Windows (boot from the CD)

I'm sorry if this has been covered before, but I'm having a problem with my video. I have a HP 6640-C with a voodoo 3 3000. I've disabled the onboard video in windows, but I really think I need to switch the jumper on the mobo to fully disable it. Granted my HP is only running at 500mghz and 120 RAM, I would still think my Voodoo 3 could handle Quake 3, but it's totally unplayable. Very jerky. Anyway, if anyone has access to a HP 6640-c mobo diagram, specifically the onboard video jumper, I would GREATLY appreciate it.


A:Disabling onboard video...

Hi celticsdiehard

This might be close. If not try surfing the HP site. Depending on the unit the video may need to be turned off in BIOS if there is no on board jumper
