Hello, first off let me say this is a wonderful site and in sadder we couldent have met under better terms .

So this is the problem.

1 year old custom built pc. Amd 250 3ghz dual core,
gigabyte Ga-ma78gm-us2. Mobo
original videocard: 7600 gs nvidia
new card 8800gts nvidia.

After installing the new card it made a high frequenzy beeping sound. So I immediatly shut it down and switched the videocards back... Only to hear a lowe freq. Buzzing sound...

So I took that card out as well, and turned it on, again it made a beeping sound.

I can hear all the peices starting up but there's no display. Can anyone tell me what parts I killed .

A:Issues after installing video card, was mobo fried?

Hey everyone,

I'm running an HP p6214y with an nVidia GeForce 9800 GT. I recently got a Sony Bravia 32" TV that I was hoping to run in dual screen mode with my HP 2009f monitor. The video card has two DVI out ports which I'm using with two DVI to VGA cables. However, I've found that when I hook the Sony HD TV up to my video card, the video card will stop sending an input signal completely randomly. This sends no warnings or errors to the event log either. I have a 750watt power supply as well. Has anyone else had this problem?

Thank you!

Two times in the last week my monitor (a KDS visual sensations CRT) has come on with the image looking like an hourglass (wide at the top and bottom, pinched in the center). This happened imediately upon boot up and both times rebooting has returned the monitor to normal, leaving the computer running does not bring the problem back. Which is more likely, that my monitor is beginning to fail or maybe my graphics card (a saphire, ATI radeon 7000) is failing? Is there some way (other than swaping my monitor out and trying another as this seems so far to be an intermitent problem and may not arise when a new monitor is conected) to check and see which it may be?

And now, for some reason, whenever I turn my computer on, there's no signal. All the wires are connected and I've tested two different working monitors, so I know that there's nothing wrong with the monitors.

My gfx card is a Nvidia GeForce FX 5200 made by EVGA. Please help

putting this way,half a year ago when i took my cpu back to the shop for servicing - they claimed that there was something wrong with my mobo and have to sent back to factory for warrenty (repairing) and till today i m doubt something wrong with it after getting back from them....

is there any software or programe to check the mobo or graphic card's condition?


edit: i think i put in a wrong section and if it is, i m really sorry coz i m just new to here

A:how to check faulty mobo & graphic card?

You can test RAM with memtest 86+
A motherboard is difficult to diagnose at home. If something isn't working and you suspect hardware, you swap parts until you isolate the broken item.
What did they say was wrong?

Please don't apologize when posting - it's annoying.

I want to use my laptop to watch tv, but I don't know how to input video signals into my laptop's monitor..

I really need your help, thanks a lot!

A:How can I input video signal to my laptop monitor?

Welcome to TechSpot forums

It is unlikely that the laptop's video capability has a video in connection. So unfortunately I doubt this is a possibility. One of my workmates does have a USB tv card device which feeds a TV signal into the computer and this works with a laptop (aerial connects to device, device connected via USB connection to laptop).

Something like the devices for sale from this website would be required:

If you post details of the laptop model we will be able to confirm whether it does or does not have a video in capability.

Hi all, I have just bought a second hand Dell Dimension 2200. When I switch it on the monitor is displaying
No Signal input, check video cable. I was using this computer at the home of the person I bought it from without problems.

When I have hooked the monitor to a laptop it is displaying on the screen for a couple of seconds the showing me the same error message.

As soon as I switch on the computer it give four short beeps, a short pause then another two beeps.

Any ideas as to what this would be or how I could fix this would be greatly appreciated.

Hi there, I don't mean to clog this forum up with possible rubbish but I have been searching all day and have got as far as getting the usb capture card to be recognised and accepted by ulead (the video editing abd capture software that comes with the capture card)

My problem now is that, I know there is an input signal there, as the screen is black but every now and then a green colour will appear across the bottom of the capture area but that is the most I get.

I have tried my xbox one and xbox 360 and both have the same problem.
my setup is xbox>hdmi to vga cable>easycap>laptop.

any help would be appreciated.

Hi there - I've been successfully connecting my tiny work laptop to my awesomely huge HP desktop using an HDMI cable for about a year now. Just connect the two, put the "HDMI IN" button to connect, and all is well... Except that every 4th or 5th time I do it, it fails and I get the "Game Mode No Video Signal" error instead. I try disconnecting & reconnecting, rebooting, waiting a while and trying later, etc. But, sometimes, it just won't connect no matter how I try to persuade it. Any ideas? Thank you,C.

Welcome to the world of custom building lol, my computer has similar problems that if i have had it turned off for more than 5 minutes it will not boot and keeps bluescreen until i do a clean boot with a power drain, my solution to that is do just set the bios on the MB to use a 1W standby and leave it in sleep mode always (reboot it every so often)

A friend of mine gave me a MSI K6N Diamond Plus mobo. Everything on it worked, except for the onboard audio, which wasn't a big deal. Recently, I tried to install a Sound Blaster X-Fi sound card, only to have my computer tell me that a recent hardware change is preventing windows from booting up. So, I took the sound card out, but now I am no longer getting any kind of a signal to my video card. The strange thing is that on occasion, it will work. I've tried switching the video card to the other PCIE slot and switching out the RAM, but so far nothing has worked.
Any suggestions? Or does it sound like this mobo is fried.

A:No video signal from MSI mobo

I would reset the CMOS and see if that clears it up. If you mistyped and meant MSI K8N Diamond Plus, there should be a CMOS reset button on the motherboard you can press to clear it, or you can remove the CMOS battery for a few minutes to do the same thing. If you do mean K6N, I don't know if it has a reset button. Then you would have to remove the battery.

Next time disable the onboard sound in the BIOS before installing the sound card. It should work fine that way provided you can get everything going again.

well, my somewhat new Ati Radeon 9800 pro, with a 3rd party fan and little brass heat things added to the card, has fried, i think.. i started it up today, and i looked at the boot screen and it was really bad looking, like pixelated, then when i logged in to my desktop, all the icons and my mouse, has these little black lines behind them, like the transparent background of the icons were showing thru.

Plus when i launch a game, prey for example, it is really bad, here look at a screen shot:
i have updated the driver 3 times, uninstalling and reinstalling, same outcome.

Can i fix this? or is it dead?

i would also like your opinion on wich video card to get, i might just get another 9800 pro, if i can..

A:Has your video card ever fried itself?

That is really not possible... but it can seem like those events are independent of human action.
Those dang spring clips create more damage to computers and printers than we can tolerate. We're getting mad as heck, and were not going to take it any more...
But I suspect your card was already in the midst of failure when you decided to improve on things.

I'm having to swap out a dead mobo: MSI 770-C45 DDR 3 for a Asus M5A97 LE R2.0 w/ no video signal to the monitor from the dead beast & (preferably) w/out doing a clean install of OS , which, given that is the reason I"m replacing this 3 yr old board, makes retrieving any information from the system or affecting any kind of device /driver uninstalls or alterations beforehand unlikely. (A prior post, w/ video available) mentioned switching the sata controllers to IDE in Device Man. (I"m a little spoofed at this level, TBH) I assume the device drivers are interfacing with the mobo thus making slaving the h/d to my laptop a non-viable option.

I have an old Dell Dimension 4600. The video card is gone. I need to get a new card and thought that with the box open, I would upgrade the RAM also. This is a old machine that I only use for email, light surfing and storage. Dell recommends the below, is this the best thing for my use? I have no idea, so help someone may be able to make a recommendation.

A:Nvidia Video Card Fried?

G'day that is certainly a name!
I would suggest removing the power from the machine, then removing the video card and plugging the monitor back into the onboard video socket.
On re-power up it will (with luck) realise the onboard video is required and load the driver for it and produce an image.
You shouldn't need drivers at this point, hopefully you won't need to enter BIOS and make any changes.
See if you can get that up.
(It sounds like the video card may be crippled)
Lightning does not need to strike the prower lines to kill a machine, it is always worthwhile unplugging or fitting a surge protection device. (these work sometimes)
Cheers, qldit.

I have a geforce 6100 that seems to be faulty. I got a new motherboard about 6 months ago and ever since it hasn't worked the same. When i play videos, there is something funny about them. It plays sometimes but then i go to minimize it and re open it and its only in one small corner of the screen. I have all the codecs plus driver updates. The only way it works well is wehn i turn the acceleration down to none. ALthough the screen is very blurry when it is full screen. I have also brought it to the shop and they "couldnt find anything".

The only thing i can think is faulty card and they do not wanna play for a new one. It is integrated int he motherboard.
ANy other options, ideas?

Got this corruption in my display after about 2-3 hours of MW2 last night. This is the worst it's been so far, started as missing or incorrectly colored textures, started getting video lag during that session last night and then what you see in the picture.

This seems to have started when I built my new system but I think that may be because the old one wasn't PCIe 2.0 so it never really stressed the card...

Looks like it is overheating might want to check the fan on the card and cooling on your system

The PSU is probably dead now, it might be the only thing dead. (maybe your x1650 pro is still working). Replace it with a decent unit this time. If you plan to game, one the most important components is a good quality PSU.

A:Faulty Laptop Video Card

The low level functions of the video card use a vga vesa driver
that does not activate the hardware accelleration.
The problems you ar e having when the driver loads indicates
bad hardware and not a driver problem.
Being as it is a 6800 go card,it is probably replacable.
It would need to be replaced with the exact same type of card,
but not necessarily the same model.
If you want to try a newer driver,you would need to uninstall the old
one from start/control panel/add remove programs.
Download a driver here.

Windows automatically updated last night before shutting down. When I turned on the computer this morning, the HP w2207h monitor was not functioning properly. Each time I rebooted, I received the message "HDMI Input: No Input Signal" before the monitor went to sleep.

I do not believe it is a problem with the sleep and display settings as I have dual monitors and the EN9910 is functioning properly; both are set to NEVER anyway. Further, I have plugged our SONY television into the HDMI port and it works just fine.

I have also plugged the monitor into another computer, using the same cable, and both worked just fine. The hp monitor also functions in the utility mode. Problem seems to exist only when Starting Windows.

This has happened once before with a Windows Update, but I don't recall the solution.

Please help.

Then it is just a matter of downloading any updates if this is what is - one or two at a time until you find which one is the culprit. Make a not of that one and each time it comes up untick it to download / install.

Hi. This question will immediately expose my ignorance about video capture. I'm interested in getting a Leadtek Winfast DTV1000S card, mainly to convert some videos. I see from the specifications and the pictures that this card supports composite video and S-video connections. However, I can't find any reference to the audio signal, and how that is captured. I suspect it would probably be through a separate audio line from the source into the line-in on my PC, bypassing the DTV1000S as such. Could any wise member please take pity on my ignorance and tell me how the audio signal is handled in such a case.

Many thanks

A:Audio input to video card

Where do you capture from, and with which program? If it's an external source, say VHS tapes or such, you use a * connector to 3.5mm audio jack to the mic line in plug, and select the program to capture audio from line in. If it's from an internal file from the computer (some would need to do this) or a digital broadcast, or whatnot, you just set the program to record sound from the default audio output device. Make sure the program you use supports this.

I would like to get a video from the Raedon HD 7000 series, more specifically, 7700 or 7800.

I managed to find my computer's specs online and want to ask if I were to get a new card, would I need to upgrade anything else, like a better PSU, or a better CPU to prevent the card from being bottlenecked. I don't mind if it's bottlenecked a bit, but I would like to run Skyrim (as well as BF3) on high or ultra and be able to play Witcher 2 more smoothly.

The computer specs can be found here on the official HP site. I hope this is enough information to answer my question.

If I have forgotten or you need anything else, feel free to tell me and I will update ASAP.

Well you'd definitely need a better PSU than that 300W one which came with the HP. What's your total budget for the card + PSU?

I just bought a new video card and installed the drivers. The VGA and DVI outputs work fine. However, the S-video input on the card doesnt seem to work. Although I have a live S-video source plugged into the card, Windows Movie Maker (or any other program) gives me an error saying that I have no video input device plugged in. I re-installed my old video card and the S-video worked fine, so it seems to be an issue with the new video card. My question is this: do I need to tell Windows how to look for the S-video input through this new card, or should it find it automatically? I think the S-video input is broken for this video card, but am not positive.

Unless it is, no video card will work.

Try the Caps Lock key, if the Caps light toggles on and off each press, then the computer probably has booted. If not, stop blaming the video card as it probably has nothing to do with it, the problem lies elsewhere, such as PSU/CPU/Motherboard etc.

I just bought an MSI GeForce 8800GTS video card. Arrived today. Once installed it doesn't show any video whatsoever for either of my two monitors. Tried swapping them repeatedly and restarting, but to no avail. No idea what the issue might be. Maybe the monitors are incompatable? I also thought maybe my PSU just doesn't have enough juice to run it.... Can anyone shed some light on this.

Thanks in advance.

My setup:
AMD 2.0GHz single core
Previously: eVGA Geforce 6600 256mb video card
PSU: 550W

The title says almost all but several more things to add. I installed another hard drive and everything was fine until I turned the computer off. When I turned it back on, no hard drive detected in bios again. The hdd's still spin up, but cannot be detected by mobo. Checked power supply while running and all is okay.
The mobo is a p4b533-v that my brother was having trouble getting started. I had it working good for about a month and then, well, here I am. Any suggestions on locating the problem would be greatly appreciated.

A:Fried HDD and 2 DVD drives and need some input

This is a very old Motherboard
It was first released in May 2002

It has a 478 Chipset with AGP 4X slot and only ATA connection to Hard Drive

Personally I'd say throw away

But if you are determined, try placing the little jumper on the back of the Hard Drive to either M for master or CS for Cable Select (try one then the other)

If it still doesn't work, try replacing the IDE Data cable, that connects to the Hard Drive
Also make sure that the CD Drive has its own IDE Data Cable, or even just remove the CD IDE cable, in case it's causing problems.

But I prefer the throw away idea

Oh here's your manual too:

Note: It is possible that the old Motherboard just can't recognize the new Hard Drive
You could also run "Setup Defaults", check in your manual howto do this

I believe drivers? faulty BSOD 116 card or graphics faulty the initial crash was caused by overheating Based on the fact that I have gotten it to work for a short amount of time more on that later Booting up with the drivers for my graphics card enabled causes BSOD to appear but when it is disabled everything is fine I can boot into safe mode and I have already reinstalled windows My motherboard is Asus B M-e and my graphics card is Nvidia EV A GTX How I got it to work for a short amount of time I reinstalled windows and then installed my integrated Ethernet driver After that was out of the way I installed and used driver booster to install the rest of my drivers I then noticed there was a missing driver that the program could not install that was named Simple PCI Controller So I thought I should install that driver using my motherboard's driver installation disk It then worked up until I decided to change the settings in Nvidia Control panel I also do not know how faulty graphics cards behave so it might be my graphics card The game I was playing when this started was Life is Strange if that is needed

A:Monitor gets no signal from video card?

If the monitor is able to display Windows running in Safe Mode, the monitor is fine.
The monitor only shuts down because your PC is shutting down, at which time monitor switch-off is automatic owing to the power-management feature of Windows. It doesn't mean the monitor is faulty.

The problem is either the video card or the driver you've installed for it.
I would say it's the driver. If it was a faulty card, Windows would not appear on screen in any mode at all.

In Safe Mode however, all third-party drivers are ignored (not loaded) and this is how Safe Mode is able to start when there's a bad third-party driver preventing it from starting in Normal Mode.

A:Fried ethernet input circuit

What's your download speed from the internet?

Also, do you know what type of USB port you were using? USB 2.0?

Also, what is the bandwidth of the USB ethernet card? 54Mbps?

Any new NICs (Network Interface Cards) should work at both full and half duplex and will be auto negotiated by your router so don't worry too much about that.

As for this 'work around' card, how does it connect to the laptop?

Unless you are using a USB 1.0 your internet connection speed should not be affected with your connection being the bottleneck which is normal. That being said you may experience slower transfer speeds between local machines on your LAN.

I have had similar issues in the past when all it took was to move the video card to a different slot. Sounds as if there are issues that seem to be intermittent pointing back to the video card. I would remove the video card use a good air cleaner (bottled air if possible) clean out all slots prior to reinstalling the video and try a new slot for the video card.

I recently installed a new hard drive in my computer and got the computer up and running. I installed Windows 98(2nd ed.) and I decided to take a break, so I shut the computer down for a few minutes and when I turned it back on, the Monitor was not receiving a signal. I had another computer here so I hooked it up to the monitor and turned it on and it worked fine. I know by that, that there isn't a problem with the Monitor, it is something with the computer. Someone suggested that the video card went out, could this be the problem?? If so, the video card is built into the motherboard, can I buy another video card that would be installed into a PCI slot or do I have to replace the motherboard???? Please HELP!!

A:Monitor not receiving signal--video card???

If it has the video built into the motherboard, you will need to install the driver for that. You should have a system disk that came with the motherboard to do just that. If not we will need to know what motherboard you have to help you find the driver.

If it is a name brand computer the make and model number may be enough to find it.

I got a new video card, namely the Sapphire Vapor-X R9 280X to replace my old (broken) video card, namely the Sapphire Radeon HD 7970 Boost.

The problem is that I get no video signal when linking my new video card. The vga-led on motherboard turns on red (normally never)
I thought my motherboard is broken, but then I tried the video card (Radeon HD 6950) from my brother and he just shows video signal. (vga-led turns not on red this time on motherboard)

I would also say that on the box of my new video card is a 750 watt power supply recommended, but I only have a 600 watt power supply build in my pc.

I'm going to contact the store tomorrow, but I hope someone can help me to solve the problem.

Hi. The description of this mobo has me wondering.

"Using the Nvidia GeForce 6100 chipset with integrated graphics in conjunction with up to 2GB?s of DDR2 memory, it?s perfect for those that don?t need a discrete graphics card."

This seems to imply that you can't add a graphics card. Am I wrong?
I was thinking of buying like a $30 video card just to improve the video that this mobo provides.

Another question, if you can add a video card, should I not get a PCIE card since this mobo runs PCIEx16 in x8 mode?

Oops, forgot to add link.

A:Can I use a video card with this mobo?

well to answer your main question, yes, you CAN add a video card. hence why it even has a pci-e expansion slot in the first place. it will just run it at half the speed.

and just in general...that is just a terrible...TERRRIBLE motherboard. why would you want to buy this? seeing as you want to put in a graphics card, that seems to suggest that you want to do some gaming, yes?

i've got bad news for you. that motherboard just isn't gonna cut it. the sad reality is you have to spend a minimum of 95 dollars to get a decent board. i learned that through tons of research and asking a lot of questions.

but it looks like you're just going to have to live with it i guess. you don't seem to have an awful lot of money.

30 dollars will definitely NOT get you anything that will show a significant improvement. especially not with an 8x slot. i'm not sure if you can change what it runs at. perhaps a bios edit will fix that to a full 16x. but if i were you, i would try to spend at least 180 dollars.

that seems like a crap lot. but another sad realization i've come to is that if you want to game these days, you'll HAVE to shell out at least that much to get even a half decent card. that much will buy you one of two video cards. one is the radeon x1950. and the other is the ati radeon 3850. the 3850 is just under top of the line, and it offers decent performance. and it will fit that slot.

IF you can try to up your cash flow, and find the money for it, the only foreseeable upgrades you'll need to make in the future are a motherboard upgrade, a processor upgrade, and RAM upgrade. that's just about it.

if you buy a cheap piece of crap now, you'll wish you had waited and bought a better one.

not to mention if you go with really cheap now, you'll just end up having to spend more money sooner to upgrade to a better card. with how fast graphics are improving, any cheap piece of junk is going to be left in the dirt VERY quickly.

the only decent cards these days are the following:

geforce 7800
geforce 7900
geforce 8600
geforce 8800

radeon x1950
radeon HD 2900xt
radeon 3850
radeon 3870

the prices vary, so look around on newegg or tigerdirect.

i'd STRONGLY...STRONGLY suggest going with a card from the aforementioned list. because 1, you won't find a good graphics chip for 30 dollars. and 2, it won't improve your gaming experience. in fact, the 30 dollars cards maybe so outdated that they'll make it worse. that built in 6100 can do quite a bit.

Just purchased a new Radeon HD 5550 PCI-E 2.1 video card. My mobo has onboard VGA but i want to add a video card to improve graphics. on the box of this particular gpu, it states the system requirements are a "PCI-E complient motherboard with one X16 graphics slot"

According to my mobo specs, i have one PCI-E X16 slot, which makes my mobo eligible to put in a GPU such as this one. My PSU is 450W, the required for the GPU is at least 400W.

When i hookup my GPU i get no signal from my monitor, even if i connect my VGA cable up on the on-board VGA port. when i remove my GPU from it's slot, instantly i receive signal from my monitor and my onboard VGA.

What could be the issue?

Thanks in Advance!

First of all here are some specifications MOTHERBOARD ASUS P GC-MX PROCESSOR Intel Core Duo E GHz RAM X MB DDR - PC - VIDEO CARD RADEON X PRO PCI-E MB POWER SUPPLY W So I bought the motherboard processor ram and powersupply new a few months ago and finally got around to building the PC I ve built PCs before but I followed the instructions anyway and made sure PCI-E from or Monitor video receiving signal not card VGA onboard all the connections were made in the right places But my CRT monitor my LCD is broken at the moment is not receiving the video signal from either the onboard VGA or the PCI-E card which I bought new a couple of years ago I tried removing and reinserting the RAM removing everything nonessential removing and reinserting the CMOS battery and clearing the BIOS forgive my Monitor not receiving video signal from onboard VGA or PCI-E card improper terminological grammar and nothing seems to be working I don t hear any beeps or sounds at all and the Monitor not receiving video signal from onboard VGA or PCI-E card monitor light simply blinks as it does when Monitor not receiving video signal from onboard VGA or PCI-E card the computer is off I tried using my older motherboard ABIT IP- and the CRT receives the signal from both the onboard VGA as well as the PCI-E from that one There is a light on the motherboard which lights up to confirm that it is receiving power So what s the problem here I should mention one other thing too because it may or may not be related When using my older motherboard the computer boots to the Windows Vista screen and even occasionally lets me use Windows for a little while - mins but then simply reboots electrical problem perhaps When I touch the case I feel a slight shock sometimes I ve tried keeping the case both on the table as well as on the ground same thing happens so for now I m just wearing rubber slippers More info on electricity Where I live they use V and I ve made sure to adjust the powersupply for that I ve also tried V with a converter that I have my American CRT only works on but that doesn t seem to make any difference Also this powersupply is new and the older powersupply worked just fine too it was W I hope this isn t an information overload but as you can see I ve considered quite a few things and spent many hours configuring and reconfiguring with this stuff This hardware wasn t OEM either since I bought them separately and I made sure of the compatibility So is this a hardware failure or an electrical problem I would prefer just an oversight on my part or at the worst the latter because I m currently living in Pakistan and the hardware here is quite a bit behind what I brought with me from the USA Hope to get some help here and thanks a lot in advance for any advice at all PS I already looked through google but couldn t find anything that helped me out nbsp

Dear, Tech Guy Support. I've been experiancing problems running my computer recently, I've been getting, 'No Signal' and "Mode Not Supported," on my moniter. I believe it's my video card (ATI 128 MB Radeon 9800 Pro) because when this message occurs, my computer is still running, except that moniter doesn't display anything and that when I reboot a windows error message about video card pops up.

The message is as follows: Computer restarted after an unexpected shutdown. Microsoft Windows detected a possible device failure. The driver for the display was unable to complete a drawing operation. Please check with the device manufacturer for a driver update.

However the message doesn't always occur when I reboot oddly enough. I've updated my drivers for my ATI card, my BIOs and my AGP slot however the problem persists. Please advise me on how to resolve this particular issue, THANKS.

My motherboard is going bad (i believe) and I need help choosing a new Motherboard and video card to go with it as i am not to knowledgable on this subject. I have a cheap Video card now so i want a new one of those too. I don't want something very expensive but i also don't want cheap, so something intermidiate. Here is what i currently have:
ABIT NF7 Motherboeard
AMD Athlon 2.08GHz Socket A
(2) Corsair 256MB DDR RAM

I might want new RAM as well so please give me some recommendations. All advice will be appreciated. Thanks

I have an Intel D865GBF mobo and I can get a Radeon X1600 Pro 256mb AGP video card for a reasonable price. Is the video card compatible with the mobo? How do I find this out?

A:Video Card compatibility / mobo

Most of the old 865 chipset boards are AGP, so it probably is. That's a good card. You can check the INTEL website to be exact.
