Preferred Solution: Problem with video output

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: Problem with video output

I should mention that the jumpers I mentioned are used only to reset the BIOS, I apologize for any confusion. Basically, resetting the BIOS allows for video output sometimes.

The DVI output on my computer stop working.  I am using two monitors, one on DVI, the other VGA.  System does not detect two displays.  Has the DVI been deactivated by something that might have happened when Windows 10 was updating?  I've shecked cables and monitors so it must be motherboard of OS related.  Any suggestions. Mike

The DVI output on the IPM87-MP motherboard in my desktop appears to have decided to stop working.  I've tested the same monitor with an alternate cable and that's not the problem.  I've also tested another monitor on this output and it won't work either. So I've concluded the output must be faulty. Are there any tests I can run or anything else I can do that might confirm the failure and/or ressurrect this output.  I'm currently running two monitors on this computer-one on DVI and the other on VGA outputs. Or am I looking at installing a separate video card? Mike

Hy guys, I'm so in trouble for 3 days now with the following issue: I'm trying to make my TV the second display in order to see movies on big screen and I connected my notebook with the TV through a 4 pin- 4 pin S-Video cable. But nothing happens when I pres fn+F4. In my Display Properties my computer doesn't recognize the second display. Could it be due to the fact that my laptop output is 7 pin? I also downloaded Intel 945GM Display Driver hoping in some miracle but nothing happened. The TV is OK because it worked when another laptop was connected. I mention that I have a HP Compaq nc6320. Could it be a bug of this particular model? What do I do? please help!
Thank you!

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.

Hello i am an owner of a Dell inspiron 3542 i7 with 840m. I have a question that the tech support in Greece couldn't solve. When i plug the hdmi on my laptop and i connect it to a screen if the screen is bigger then 19' then everything is messed up. The colors the resolution everything. I noticed that the hdmi is connected to the integrated graphics card which powers the display of the laptop of course and has and output of 1300sth resolution. So when i connect it my laptop with an external monitor i cant see anything right from resolution or colors side.Is this normal? there is nothing wrong with graphics card the discrete and the integrated are perfectly working i cant just get passed this issue though..

A:Sony video-cam, video 2 pc, no video or audio output

There should be a Firewire (otherwise called IEEE 1394 or DV Link) port on the camera, it looks like a mini USB port. Using a Firewire cable, connect this port to the Firewire port on your laptop or PC. If your PC has no Firewire port, you can add one by buying a PCI Firewire card.

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.

[7pin>>Yellow Female Composite] >>> [DOUBLED ENDED Yellow Male Composite] >>> [Yellow Female Composite>>4pin]

Is this configuration even possible, and if so, how does one enable the graphics card to send out the signal?

A:no video output

First test: power off, take out the RAM and reboot. You should get a string of beeps. If yes, this tells us that the m/board is OK and that everything you have connected to it is (probably) OK. Power off.
If no beeps, disconnect everything and take out the RAM and all cards.
Disconnect all front panel connectors except the speaker if there is one.
Reboot - string of beeps is good; no beeps not so good. Power off
Now remove the motherboard and reconnect the PSU conenctors. Connect the speaker if external. Short the front panel power button conenctor with a small screwdrive - beeps are good, no beeps means the board us U/S
If you get beeps, power off and reassemble making sure you do not have more metal support pegs than there are holes in the board as otherwise they can short the board out. Put back one piece at a time, checking for a single beep after each item is fitted. If they stop, you have a problem component. Tell us.

I have the ATI Radeon X700 Pro AGP graphics card. It has a VGA, DVI, and S-Video output on it. Right now I am using and adapter to go from S-Video to a regular yellow video cable to go to my TV. The problem is, the text is extremely hard to read on the TV.

Is there anything I can do to make things easier to read on the TV?

A:Video output to a tv

I have the same problem. Actually my old computer had video out, as well as my new pc I built two months ago. On both computers, even with my radeon x800 gto pci express video card I use now I see a reduction in video quality using the tv out feature. I read somewhere that most tv's are specifically designed to show moving pictures rather than static images, making small text hard to read. Newer lcd and plasma tv's may be an exception. The only thing you can do to improve your picture quality is to use the s-video cord and not an adapter "This is supposing you have a tv that supports s-video". I have heard that there is a noticeable difference in quality if you do this although I never got around to trying it. Another thing you can do is see if you can tweak the tv sharpness, and make sure the refresh rate is set good for your tv and also try to increase the flicker reduction. Your ati installation disc should have given you the ability to adjust these things, do remember though that this will only help to a point.

Hi All,

I am running an IBM 6850-10u Intellistation M Pro:

Xeon 1.5 GHz (256 KB), 256MB RAM, 40GB 7.2 EIDE, Matrox Millennium G450

I brought it over from North America to Europe and now I can't get the video to come up on the monitor. I don't get anything, including a start-up screen, the monitor appears to stay in power saver mode. I know that the video card is good (Matrox Millennium AGP), and I have also tried a ATI Radeon 256 PCI video card, but it dosen't change the situation.

Would power be an issue? The Power Supply is self converting, 120 - 240V, but I'm not sure on the Power in France. All fans start, power to floppy, CD, and Hard Disk.

Any help would be greatly appreciated. Any more info needed I will get back as soon as possible.


A:No Video Output

I'm sure it's a power problem. Is there a red switch on the back of the power supply? If so, move it from the 115v to the 240v. If not, you may have to replace the existing one that will allow switching.

Also check all components are firmly seated.

A:No Video Output

Three beeps means no video card is detected.

If you successfully used your video card in another PC and the same card fails to produce output on the faulty PC, then perhaps the PCI/AGP/PCI-E slot or the circuitry on the motherboard is bad, if I understand your situation correctly, which I'm not sure I do.

I thought it would be as simple as connecting an s-video cable from the graphics card to my tv but i cannot get the signal on the tv, what gives? furthermore, please forgive my ignorance, but i thought that maybe i needed to enable a device. so from the manage devices i selected from a drop down menu; to enable the analog tv device and search for a driver on the web. i then got a "bluescreen" which shutdown my system repeatedly untill the device was disabled! i am guessing this is a terrible conceptual error. Can somene set me straight?

A:s-video output to tv

Hi bhardini.You need to configure both the television's video input and your computers video output to work together.Start by making sure your television video input is set to use the svideo connection on the correct channel (video1, video2, etc) via the setup menu on the tv itself. Your manual should tell you how to do this. You must also know the resolutions your tv is capable of displaying and set your computers video s output resolution accordingly or you will get nothing on the screen as well. Finally, you'll need to make sure your computers video card\system is configured to actually use the tv as a monitor.If all this sounds confusing (it's usually very simple), please post make and model of tv and video card you're using.You didn't give us much to go on.

Which version of NVIDIA's Detonator drivers are you using? If you are using edited ones that came with your computer from your manufacturer, they could have methods to prevent copyrighted material being sent out via tv-out. Try updating to the latest drivers from NVIDIA . I have also experienced problems like this, updating the drivers seemed to do the trick. Good Luck and welcome to TechSpot :grinthumb !

The hard drive is working, and I can view its files via a USB/IDE bridge so I know it has power. I have reseated the IDE cable and tried different jumper settings, to no avail. I have tried two monitor cables. One possible clue: the fan turns on and runs loudly as soon as the PC is powered up. Is there anything else I can try before concluding that it is totaled with a bad motherboard or something? Many thanks.

Hello I just got a new TV. TV has two HDMI cables. I want to connec it to my PC to watch videos.

Can I get a DVI to HDMI cable like so:
Will this output both video and sound. My GPU has VGA, Svideo and DVI outputs.

Using Toshiba C660D, recently I upgraded to W10, but due to several problems I re-installed W7 from scratch (used recovery media from Toshiba), so is genuine. . Before I upgraded to W10 when I put my computer on TV display I got a ribbon type selection bar on my screen to select video output, when pressing fn and F5 navigated, with arrow keys . Now after re-install I get an on screen display of function keys and an on screen display of video output options navigable only by use of touchpad/cursor and left click button.
Any idea how to return to ribbon type selection bar. I just prefer this method.
Thank you Rayal49

i have a computer upstairs and a tv in the living room. is it possible to somehow stream the video output from my computer to the tv? i know d-link has a wireless media player but that can only stream video and music... does anyone if it's possible?

A:stream video output

I think you need to directly connect it. But it's going to be pretty much impossible to use unless you have long mouse and keyboard cords Wireless keyboards and mouse are not that strong.

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.
Thanks for your time.

I recently bought a new LCD flat screen for my old Dell, but the video card only comes with VGA output. I'm looking for a basic video card with DVI output to improve the display which looks a bit crappy. I don't really want to spend more than 50. I don't do much gaming - just the occasional Civilisation IV which is a bit jerky at present so would be nice if it was a bit smoother.

Attached are screengrabs of my specs except for the power supply - there's nothing printed on the unit. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

You have to go into windows via dvi and use your control panel settings. W/E the equivilent for nvidia control panel is for ati and specifically designate hdmi to be used. My brother had to use a different monitor all together to do this process. Using the dvi monitor kind of as the "host," while booting into windows then plugging up his new monitor via hdmi.

A:video output is not correct

First, have him reseat the video card (if it's in a slot and not on-board) just to be on the safe side. It could very well be a bad card......especially if there was heat build-up inside. If you can get us some more system specs, that would help.

Hey everyone,
So, i've got this really old Tv, and i want to use it as a media center, with a PC. The tv only has 2 scart sockets, so i've got a scart to female RCA adapter, and at the other end ive got a svideo output, with a 3.5mm sound output that goes into 3 prong RCA. The cable is capable of transfering data both directions.
But the Tv doesn't show anything on the AV channel from the PC. Is the TV actually capable of doing what i need it to?

Relevancy 48.16%

For the longest time, I was able to use an S-Video cord to use my television as a monitor for my laptop. I just tried doing it again, but I get nothing whenever I try connecting the cord.

On my Sony Vaio computer, you have to press Fn + F7 to switch between displays. Whenever I do this, nothing pops up.

I believe the problem has to do with my services on my laptop. I used an online services tweaking guide to disable unneeded services, trying to speed up my computer. I believe one of the services was a service that would allow my computer to be hooked up to an external display.

Does anyone know which service is responsible for allowing a connection to an external display?

A:How to enable S-Video output?

As a general rule, you shouldn't be disabling services unless you know exactly what they do and you know that it won't harm your system. You should reset the services you stopped to their defaults for as many as you can remember where they were. Particularly make sure that antivirus services are running, otherwise your computer is wide open for anything to get in.

As for the service, looking in my services list I don't see anything that screams "I'm the service that allows multiple monitors!" so it may take a bit of looking... You should most definitely make sure that Plug and Play is set to "Automatic" (the computer doesn't recognize when anything is plugged in that wasn't when it was started) and that it's started.
You shouldn't be able to disable Plug and Play, as Windows offers no way to disable it.

I hope someone can help.

There is no signal from the onboard vga port. I've swapped power supply, changed ram, disconnected all peripherals H/D and drives, checked H/D, monitor, all are ok. When the ram is removed the pc beeps as expected.
What i would like to know is there any way to check the vga port like with a voltmeter? and would simply installing a new vga card solve the problem or do i need to change the mobo?


A:Onboard video no output

Easiest way is to find or borrow another video card to try or test.
Our shop has repaired over 8000 computers without seeing a failed VGA port... but I am sure it will happen sometime.
In our experience, the video card is among the most failure prone of all computer components. Some fail in six months, while others may last 6 years, but they all fail sooner or later... and unpredictably.
If your computer is in otherwise decent shape, it is likely time to replace the card, remove the old driver or remove the vga device in Device Manager, then install the new one.
Be sure you have a decent power supply... Quality is more important than power output, but I would look for one in the 450 - 600 watt range

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).

A:Solved: No video output

by booting fine do you mean that you can hear the normal Windows Startup sounds and music?

Please post your system specs, To include Make and model System if Big Box, or same info for the following it custom or home built, Mother Board, Processor, Ram, Video Card, Hdd(s), Optical Drive(s), Power Supply Manufacturer Model, Wattage and Amperage on the +12V Rails, OS, and any other peripherals installed on the motherboard.

Sometimes we read that the computer is booting fine except no video output when all that is really happening is some lights and fans are operating and the poster can open and close the optical drives. A lot of times this is a power supply problem however if this is the computer in your specs the Power Supply is one we rarely see causing problems and is a quality brand.

I was messing around with the bios settings this morning and changed my video settings from peg/pci to a different setting (igp) and now I have NO video output therefor I can't see the bios screen to change it back.  For reference I am running a thinkcentre M70e desktop. At first when I would reboot I would hear the sound like Windows was still loading in the background but now I don't even hear that so who knows what I've done.  is there any way to do a reset while having a totally black screen? i'm trying to avoid taking apart the computer if at all possible.

Hi I was attempting to use the onboard intel graphics and set the video to igp in bios.Guess what, no video output anywhere ! (not on the GT620 Nvidia card and not on the VGA port of the motherboard). So it looks like a brick, boots but cannot see a thing. Any suggestion on how to get out of this trap ? Note that since I cant see a thing, I cannot get back into the bios to change the parameters back. Thanks.  

Go to Solution.

A:m93p no video output

OK I solved it myself...Get the CD version of the BIOS flash update.Follow the instructions to do the flash update (including moving jumpers around on the motherboard)On first boot after the update, set the video IGD and do not forget to enable multiple monitors.Then both the on board card and the lame GT620 cards will work.The intel 4600 graphics are much better than the GT620.Install the drivers for the interl 4600 on board graphics. A bit scary but with gentle handling it will work. P.S. I cant believe the setup will let you screw up like that with no graphics output available...well it ended well.

I have the VGA output and S-video output set up to display the same images. This is easy for me to set up using the settings tab in the display menu. Unfortunately with the newer computer, there is no option for dual monitors in the settings tab. Question 1 - Is there a way to upgrade display menu to gain this control? Also, when I tried using the S-video output of the MCE 2004 pc, it does not seem to be working. The VGA works fine. Question 2 - Is there a way to activate this output port? Thanks for anyone's ideas.

A:How to activate the S-video output

You activate it via the video card settings. You can find it in the control panel.

OK by necessity this is going to be somewhat lacking in detail because gathering that detail is difficult because of the symptoms I am attempting repair of my friends system which has decided that it doesn't want to output video in Windows At first I thought the problem was related to the video card so I removed it and plugged the screen directly into the motherboard output The system boots as usual upto the Win logo then the video output disappears same happens in safe mode However when I booted from a linux xubuntu disk the output is fine I can get into the windows repair screen from a win disk I have but it says the OS doesn't match my copy and cannot proceed Could it be that the graphics output drivers for both the onboard and card are corrupt Is it possible to run system restore from inside xubuntu If you need any info [SOLVED] video 7 win output No in I will try to obtain it [SOLVED] No video output in win 7 and thanks in advance for any direction you can offer

A:[SOLVED] No video output in win 7

boot into Setup (Bios) go to Integrated Peripherals. look for Onboard VGA if it is disabled, using your arrow and enter key, Enable it. Save and Exit
Restart the computer and press F8. In the Advanced Boot menu (Safe Mode etc) scroll down first to Last Known Good Configuration see if that works.
If not,then there should be Default VGA boot. This should load the Default VGA driver. At that point your can uninstall any previous Video driver. And then install either the Video driver for that model from the manufacturers support/download drivers site. Or if you intend to reinstall the video driver for the video card download it from that manufacturers support download drivers site.

My Windows -bit custom-built PC stopped outputting video suddenly video boots output normally. PC, from No I thought it was just the monitor entering power-saving mode but no such luck I tested the monitor by plugging it into my iMac that sits alongside my PC and the monitor works just as it did before The No video output from PC, boots normally. monitor was plugged into my Nvidia GeForce GTS graphics card that has two DVI ports I got desperate and tried swapping ports I knew it wouldn't do anything but I tried anyway I figured the graphics card had died on me and removed the DVI-VGA adaptor connected to my monitor and plugged it into the VGA port on the motherboard It worked and displayed my boot sequence and then the desktop However as I had not used the motherboard's built-in graphics since I bought the card several years ago and had reinstalled windows many times since then it had no drivers So I watched in x as Windows detected the hardware and installed the drivers and then asked me to restart which I did and later found to be a mistake Upon restart the VGA port was doing the same thing as my graphics card not showing anything However I was able to access it through remote desktop and LogMeIn and saw that no hardware errors were detected I then tried using msconfig to restart it in Safe Mode however the screen still doesn't display anything and the LogMeIn software won't run automatically in safe mode I haven't tried remote desktop yet but i'd imagine the results would be the same Sorry for the long post but please has anyone got any ideas suggestions

A:No video output from PC, boots normally.

Did safe mode alwasy work before? safe mode uses "standard VGA" driver and should always work.

Do you see bios screen? Can you hit F8 multiple times and see the Advanced Boot Options ?

i m using window 7-64bit
having i-5 processor with nvidia geforce 410m gpu.
hw can i use my graphic card for maximum video quality...
plz help..

A:how can i get hd output in my video players..

What format videos are you playing?

For .mp4 .mkv and other HD formats I recommend SPlayer Portable:

Important Note: Only use the Portable Edition, not installed. Also do not associate with video file types. It's better to put a shortcut to SPlayer in the SendTo Folder. Right click the video you want to play and select SPlayer from the SendTo Menu.

The reason for the note is some people, including myself, have noticed if you uninstall SPlayer and had file types associated, it could leave a "hole" in your file type associations. Other than that it's a nice player. Use Portable as noted and you should be ok.

One reason I recommend SPlayer is it will use GPU acceleration on some cards that other players won't. Or if the card has less memory than other players look for.

For more info please be more specific in detailing what you want to do.

Hi there hope someone can help

I have an AMD ATHLON 2600+ (333MHX) Instaled on an Asrock K7S8X motherboard with 256 mb 233mhz ddr and a Geforce fx 128mb (AGP) graphics card.
When i turn it on the fans spin theres no beeps and theres no video output from the graphics card.
O.K i thought change the ram instaled 512mb (333mhz) still nothing
O.K Change the graphics card tried another nvidea 128mb and a 32mb pci,again nothing.
O.k maybe the motherboard is shorting on a brass connector on the case,removed everthing to a non metallic surface, Guess what !!!!!!!!

Please someone help me i,ve ran out of ideas

A:MOBO no video output (HELP)

If there was a short, the system wouldn't power up, becasue all the power would end up goign to ground, which automatically turns off the PSU per ATX standards, but, it could be the PSU not putting out enough power, or its flaking on you. If you can, please elaborate the last time the system was in useable condition, and what was done, this is where many problems are solved, but with this info, I'm betting the PSU.

I am currently using an "E-Machines" Mother board, in a hybrid system. I want to project "Visualizations" on an LCD projector, and still be able to see and control the desktop on my monitor. if i buy a cheap PCI video card (32 meg), can i use the output of that, AND the output of my onboard video at the same time?

I am currently using an onboard sound card, and a (long-black slot) Sound card at the same time, so i guess the video thing should work. has anyone done this before, or know if it will work.

Hi I have just changed the cpu cooler and fan reboot my system and there is no video output to the monitor.

I'm trying to install the Sapphire ATI Radeon X1800 XT graphics card, however, when I place it in the PCIe slot, I don't get any video. The card only has two DVI outputs. The mother board is a Gigabyte ga-k8n51gmf-9 with an Nvidia 6100 integrated graphics. I can get a signal with VGA off the on board graphics, and I disable it, then try and install the new card and I don't get any signal from either the card, or the VGA output (Integrated). When I take the card out, I get a signal from the VGA again...

Also, the CMOS battery had to be replaced. I'm wondering what settings need to be changed. Its an Award BIOS F7.

A:No video output with GPU in PCIe slot.

Make sure PCi-E is priority for your gfx. Sometimes the bios can be very fussy.

A friend gave me a Matsonic MS8308EP mobo and processor after I put it all in a case, when I turn it on the monitor stays black. The cooler on the processor is running though. I tried every video possible, the onboard video, a PCI and AGP card but non seem to work. Could this have to do with not plugging in the connectors (SPK,HDD LED etc) properly because I really do never know which way they go (ground, 5volt etc)

Thanks all for your help.

A:Matsonic MS8308EP no video output

Are you sure it has the correct ram in it? Thats far more likely to cause the problem. If you google the mobo there is plenty of info to be found on it.

A:PC wont boot- no video output

Its rarely the CPU, but there's no way to test the board or CPU without swapping in another CPU or testing the CPU somewhere else.

Have you also disconnected al headers such as the audio and USB ports and card reader that are connected inside. Also disconnect all devices connected externally except the monitor. You can even disconnect the front panel LED's and switches and use a screw driver to short the two power switch pins on the motherboard to turn the computer on in case it's a broken switch.

Hello - does anyone know if there are any ATX motherboards, for Intel or AMD, with integrated video that has dual-output video? For specific reasons, I am trying to avoid a video card add-on, but I want 2 monitors. Price is not a big deal. Thanks.

A:ATX MB with dual output integrated video?

I've seen some with two outputs but one would be VGA and the other DVI. Would that be okay or what do you require?

I recently put together my first system and am having difficulty getting a video signal out to the monitor. Tried swapping video cards, monitors and adapter plugs, no effect. Seems to me that these items are no longer a potential source of trouble. Any other suggestions?

Motherboard EVGA 122-CK-NF68-A1 N680i SLI R
Graphics: VGA XFX PVT84JUDDD3 8600GT 256 MB R
Power: RAIDMAX RX-630A
CPU: Intel C2Q Q6600
HD: 320 GB Seagate

A:no video output on new system build

Tried replacing the PSU? Raidmax is a well-known maker of low-quality PSUs. Try it in another system and see if it works properly. Also, did you try the video card in another system to see if it works or not?
