Problem with video output

Question: Problem with video output

Here are my specs:
Motherboard: GIGABYTE G1.Sniper H6
CPU: Intel Core i5-4690K Devil's Canyon Processor 3.5GHz 5.0GT/s
Hard Drive: Western Digital Blue WD10EZEX
Video card: SAPPHIRE Vapor-X 100364VXL
RAM: HyperX FURY 8GB 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1866 Desktop Memory Model HX318C10F/8 (x1)

This is sort of a complicated issue, I will try my best to guide you through what is happening.
I started with all of my devices connected, including my video card and sound card. When the HDMI was connected to the video card, the motherboard logo would appear for a split second and disappear to be replaced with a black screen. The black screen does not go away, and the BIOS menus cannot be accessed.
I then tried removing the video and sound cards and connecting the HDMI directly to the motherboard. The BIOS menu started up, and I was able to install my OS and motherboard drivers. There are no issues when the computer is RESTARTED, but when it is shut down (as it needs to be to install the video card/ sound card), there is no video output at all. Connecting HDMI to the video card gives the same issue as before. I have been able to get video output by using the jumpers, although this only works sometimes, and I would really prefer not to need to do this every time I start my computer. So far I have been able to install my sound hard with this method, but the video card is tough. Please help.

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 http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Answer: 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.

Good afternoon I have a problem with the VGA output of my laptop Toshiba Satellite L500

Using the HDMI output I have no problem to connect to any TV.
The fact is that when I use the VGA output having the laptop on the side, on TV I get colored vertical stripes similar to a letter setting ....

Here I leave a picture of what appears to me to connect the VGA output of my laptop to a TV:

http://s2.subirimagenes.com/otros/previo/thump_8005040zqicw.jpg

tried another laptop to my TV and looks great, ..
then ...
Am I missing some driver ... do not you think?
Why is my HDMI works perfectly but my VGA displays vertical colored lines? ..
Not to do ...
This is hopeless ... I need the VGA output of my laptop toshiba l500 to work.

Greetings from Spain.

Answer:Satellite L500 -HDMI video output works fine but VGA video output don't

Maybe stupid question at the beginning but why do you need VGA connection if HDMI works perfectly? I mean using HDMI you will have better pic quality and also sound will be transferred to the TV.
Using VGA only video signal will be send to the TV.

Anyway, I don?t know which driver do you use. Is your notebook preinstalled with original OS that you got with your notebook?
Do you use ?TV only option? when this happen?

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

Every time I start up my computer, my monitor stays black. The motherboard startup(for bios) does not even load.
I have tried two different monitors, both working on seperate computers.
If it helps, I have a pc, (windows xp). Im not sure if it is a problem with the video output or not because my friend has a similair problem. He told me he just needs to powerdown a few times and it will randomly work.

Any tips would be very much appreciated.

Hello,

Someone from another forum forwarded me here, and I have a question if any of you can help me with it. I have a bad problem with my video output in my media players. I encountered this problem a few months ago, and I found out that removing the DivX Total pack worked at solving the problem, but it came back after a while. It makes the pictures look like the gama shot through the roof, and some of it become green for no apparent reason. The picture is really, really horrible due to this.

If any of you have ever experience this, it would be very appreciated if you could tell me how to fix it. I've run spyware check, virus checks, I'm using Windows XP Pro. My computer hasn't changed in months, far before this problem started occuring. I have Windows Media Player, which I reinstalled twice to try and fix the proble, DivX, which I did the same with, Winamp 2.9 and Winamp 5, as well as Herucles Media Station. If you need anymore information, I'll provide it.

It's a pretty standard issue from what I'm reading, however my search results are not yielding any solutions. I will try to be as brief as possible.

Rain Storm>Lightning>Computer no turn on>New PSU>No turnon>New Mobo>No turnon, smell from new PSU and hot to the touch cables>Put in old PSU> computer turn on> but no video output.

And I know the computer is working because I'm getting to the windows login screen after letting it boot fully and I can log in to windows with no visuals hear my harddrive think it out as all my tasks load.

I've tried resetting the MOBO battery
I've tried moving the RAM around in the slots and different configurations
I've tried a different PCI-E slot
I've tried reseating the Vid card
I've made sure it has power to the video card
I've made sure that the motherboard doesn't have on-board
What do next?

Thanks for your help guys.

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 just bought a T400 (2767-A17: T9400(2.53GHz), 2GB RAM, 250GB 5400rpm HD, 14.1in 1440x900 LCD, 256MB ATI Radeon HD3470, CDRW/DVDRW, Intel 802.11agn, Bluetooth, Modem, 1GB Ethernet, UltraNav, Secure chip, Fingerprint reader, Camera, 6c Li-Ion, WinVista Business 32) a couple a weeks ago from the IBM outlet in New York. It is a redistributed unit.  The day after I received it I wanted to do a Win XP downgrade and when restarting the computer -it would not restart. I sent it to the Lenovo service center here in Norway, and they replaced the system board. They re-tested the unit and found it to be ok (or so they said)and sent it back to me. I received it yesterday and I attempted to start it up right away with a fully charged battery. I could hear and see the computer starting up but the screen is dead -no video output. I tried connecting an external monitor, but with the same results. Any suggestions -before I return it to the service center??

I think I am doing something stupid, but I can't figure it out.  I have used my T40p for many years, inclunding using the external vga display to drive monitors and digital projectors.  For the first time, I wanted to use it to display dvds on a tv using the s-video output capability.  I have enabled the s-video and connected to the tv without a problem.  My desktop is shown on the tv correctly.  However, when I use dvd player software to show a dvd, the tv does not show the content.  The dvd content shows correctly on the computer display, but not on the tv screen.  If I use "full screen" display, nothing shows on the tv.  If I am only showing the dvd in a window, then everything else on the desktop is shown correctly on the tv, except the dvd window is blank.  Again, it appears correctly on the comupter display. I have tried various media player software, including intervideo WINDVD, and Classic Media Player.  I have tried both PAL and NTSC discs.  No difference. I suspect I am missing something obvious.  Any ideas appreciated. T40p 2373-G3U, 1600MHz, 1 GB RAM, WinXPP SP2. 1400X1050 LCD panel with ATI Mobility Fire GL 9000 display adapter.

Hey guys, I'm having an issue with video output on ALL fronts on my Y580. I recently broke the screen, and reinstalled a new screen from laptopscreens.com. The screen isn't OEM, but it is 1920*1080, and has the same connector type and input voltage. Upon installing, I did not get an output on the screen - and now my VGA and HDMI ports won't give me anything on startup either. I'm thinking I may need to flash my bios in order to reset the video settings. Does anyone have any idea where I can find a bios loader, and the current bios version for the Y580?  Thanks in advance, Zach

Answer:Problem with video output - y580

sounds like your screen has put your gpu half dead because of VGA and HDMI ports arent working never re-place a screen unless it's same model type and so on one tiny wrong move can fry your GPU completely it happened once before to others that gpu all of sudden gets voltage at 35v or something which gets gpu fryed so it dies so, try doing fn + f3 and see if that makes any screen display appear on vga or hdmi connection if it does then your fine since some times you gota do fn + f3 to activate so gpu will send signal through connected port

Hi all,

I have a Qosmio G20-110, bought in the UK, and am having problems outputting video via the S-Video cable to a flat-panel US television. I get the picture but it is rolling downwards very quickly. I was playing AVI video clips on windows media player when it did this. I followed the Nvidia setup to get the output on both laptop LCD screen and tv screen synchronised, and thats ok, except for the picture rolling. I dont know if this is a problem with NTSC output - is this even an issue when watching digital videos on a laptop? - or if it is some other kind of problem. Any advice much appreciated.

BTW, I read elsewhere on the forum that the media center television will only work in the country of purchase - not the case with my laptop, I have successfully watched tv both in the UK (PAL system) and the US (NTSC system).

Is there some way of checking or changing the output type via the s video cable?

Answer:Qosimio G20 S Video output problem - to NTSC TV

Hi

I have no experience with a NTSC TV standard but as far as I know the PAL signal supports 50Hz and the NTSC signal supports 60Hz.
Maybe this has something to do with your issue.

Here you will find the detailed description:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/NTSC

However, in your case I recommend checking the BISO settings.
In many BIOS version you could switch the video settings between PAL and NTCS.

PS: I would recommend testing the video output also on different TV?s to ensure that this is not a TV related issue.

Good luck

When i connect LCD VGA to x300 VGA port, nothing happen. Then I press Fn +  F7, it pop ups several option to choose from the way i want to output the video. After I choose one ( I treid all options already), It gave me an error message said Check my VGA connection to the LCD monitor which means My x300 doesnt even know that I already connect to a external display. I tried the VGA connection with a Viewsonic LCD monitor, a Sony TV Monitor, a Optima Projector, and a Mitsubishi Projector. All Fail.

Hi, as the subject says i suppose, i set everything up, turned the PC on but it doesn't turn the monitor on from power saving mode. When i turn it on the blue light is on for about 5 seconds then goes back into power saving mode. The gfx card is running as the fan can be heard at 100%. The monitor is using the VGA input, with a DVI-D option. I have read of people with the same problem but no solution comes up. Also the machine> isn't booting up as the busy light isn't flashing and no noise when it would be entering Vista. I have a Arctic Cooling 700W PSU so it can't be> the power. I am using the Packard Bell PT890-8237A Motherboard, so it's in a PCI-E x 16 slot, don't know if its 1.0 or 1.1 but it shouldn't matter.

Any ideas i would be hugely grateful, thanks alot.

I use my VGA port in two main places, at home to plug into an old TV via a PC/TV convertor and at work to plug directly into a projector.

This week it suddenly stopped working on both at the same time. I have tired another laptop in the projector at work and it works fine. I've also tried different leads. The problem is definitely with my laptop (which is now nearly 4 years old).

The most likely thing seems to me to be that is't the socket itself. If I plug something into it Windows (7 Ultimate) works out that there is an extra monitor, but the projector/TV recieves no signal. I've tried all the obvious things, hitting F5 makes no difference, and the Windows settings haven't been changed. The resolution and refresh rate are set correctly. I'm trying to avoid standard answers about checking all the things I've already checked!

Now, I have an HDMI port on the side, how likely is that just buying an HDMI/VGA adapter and using that port will solve the problem? I guess if it's just a physical problem with the VGA port then it will, but could the problem be a graphics card or motherboard problem, and if it is will it affect the HDMI port as well as the VGA port?

Answer:Satellite A300 - VGA port problem - no video output possible

VGA port is an analogue video output. HDMI is an digital output.
Both are different and not related to each other.

So I?m not quite sure if an adapter HDMI -> to VGA would work properly.
Possibly it would work but only with a lower resolution. So in my opinion full hd would not be possible. However, I think you will need to test it with your notebook.

Usually you can use an adapter like HDMI to DVI or DVI to HDMI trouble free.

Regarding the VGA output issue.

Well, usually the Fn + F5 should switch between the internal and external output. It should work with VGA as well as HDMI port. Maybe its just an software related issue.
In your case I would try to uninstall and update the display driver. Maybe it helps.

Ok so my problem is that after my CPU was somehow reaching 100 degrees on games and around 60 idle, I thought that the video output was simply dying to prevent the CPU from melting. So I bought a new case and just upgraded (CoolerMaster Scout) upgrading from the CoolerMaster Elite 300 I think it was. So even after this my CPU is now running at a nice(ish) temp of 50 degrees on load. I currently have 2 problems:
1. The problem of my video output just going dead is still there after checking MB temp, GFX card temps and CPU temps so I have no idea what is causing it to keep doing this.
2. With my new case I have one connector left which is a 4 pin power one for one of my fans in the case, the only problem is that it is a 4 pin in which you are supposed to put a 4 pin into, as in that one has the holes in, but I have nothing to put into them. All other ones are the opposite of that and I have plugged all those in.

If anyone has any help it would be much appreciated. If you need any more info please ask.

In our office we are having a unique problem. We have a machine in the office dedicated to running powerpoints on a LCD in the lobby (It's somewhat of an information board). We want no keyboard or other monitor hooked up to this machine. Instead, we would like to be able to connect to it remotely, log in, and Start/Stop/Change information.

Hello,

I have been coming here for a while now and I finally have a problem. I was hoping one of you might have an answer.

My Gateway solo 5300 notebook has a video output jack on the back of the notebook. I read the manual with the simple instructions. Put cable from video out to TV video in, press and hold function button then F3 to switch inbetween modes. Well I have everything connected properly and it does switch in a way the TV flickers, but still no clear picture. I am a tech at connecting entertainment components so I know its hooked up right. I just have no idea why its not working, this is the second notebook like this that I could never get the video out to work with, can anyone help???

thank you.
 

Answer:Video Output to TV problem [Gateway solo 5300 notebook]

Few things.
When connecting Svideo both pc & tv should be off.
Lot's of TV's you have to turn on the Svideo, mine has onscreen setup, access thru menu.
Might have setting in Laptop bios to enable Svideo.

Check this first:
You may have to lower resolution & refresh rate, "Display properties" on the Laptop.

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!!!
 

Answer: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.

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.

Small problem, was wondering if the wizards could help...

My brothers metal port covers came loose from the case and fell onto the videocard, so i fished them out with a paperclip. It was very easy to do but there was a small spark in the process. Now there is no video output from the board, but the monitor does recognize when you plug it in because the colour test bars disappear.

Would any one mind providing me with possible trouble shooting tips to repair this situation?

I kinda doubt that 1 spark could fry an entire board.

I've tried both video ports on the card, theres actually two geforce 9800s in the motherboard and all 4 ports are not displaying anything.

I tried it with another monitor too, tested that monitor as good using the same cord with another computer.

I have not tried another DVI to RGB adapter because i dont have one but i will try to pick another one up at radio shack when i can, but i feel doubtful thats the problem.

The computer boots fine and everything- all that happened was 1 tiny spark, and i know sparks this one was small.

how can i go about testing what the problem is? I want to isolate the issue, any ideas?

So I recently decided to update my graphics for the new Battlefront and got a pop up from Catalyst Control asking if I wanted to activate some 'super high' setting for my Toshiba 32BV702B 32" tv. I foolishly clicked okay and now my tv won't display any video.

I'm not sure where to go to turn that setting off but I can get back my video by plugging in a DVI output at the same time. I just use this extra monitor for when stuff breaks cause the BIOS options don't show on HDMI output - right now it's allowing the TV to display the picture but if I remove that cable the video goes again. I'm guessing it's a different video profile when they're both plugged in from when they aren't or something and I don't know how to make changes to just the TV when both are plugged in for me to be able to see.

Any help would be much appreciated.

Looking at a NVIDIA Quadro FX1400 128MB PCIe DDR Dual DVI Video Card P260 on eBay; I intend to use it on an  Hp Pavilion running 64 bit Windows Vista. I need to output video to three monitors; can anyone tell me if this card if capable of putting out video to both DVI ports, and the S-Video output at the same time, for a total of three monitors running at once? Thanks in advance.

Answer:Will this Quadro RX1400 let me output video to two monitors and S-Video as well?

This article best covers this:http://www.pcworld.com/article/216667/Connect_a_Third_Monitor_to_Your_PC.htmlAlthough as far as S-Video goes, I have only experienced it disabling or cloning the secondary display port on a dual-display adapter. And only way to get a 3rd to work was by cloning one display with another say the DVI with S-Video cloned and VGA extending to the DVI for extended desktop, but the DVI and S-Video displaying the same display not a actual 3rd extended for one teamed desktop across 3 displays with that much desktop space etc. Video cards with HDMI on the other hand allows this to be done on some video cards, but not all!Best way to get 3 working is 2 video cards using 3 of the 4 ports. Some cards will allow for this, others will fight you along the way, and some will not work along side others. The USB Video Adapter option is one way to get a 3rd, BUT quality of this display will only be good for word documents and power point presentations, also I have heard complaints of the USB Video Adapters being blurry and not very sharp with pictures etc.Also about 6 years ago I installed a GeForce video card into a HP S5000 series Pentium 4 2.8Ghz HT computer with 1GB RAM and when looking at the display properties it showed 3 displays available ( 2 x nVidia + 1 x Intel Integrated Video ).

I have a Laptop (Specs up to date on Profile), which I want to connect to a Phillips CRT Television.
The connection between the two is a THREE cord chain. Beginning with the Laptop's (7 Pin - S-Video output) and ending with the TV's (4 Pin S-Video input), The 3 cords go like this: [1] [2] [3]

[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?

Ok, so I'm looking to purchase a pretty cheap Video Card that would work great for S-Video Output to TV and playing several newer games without glitching and lagging (Crysis, GTA IV, Left 4 Dead, and Assassin's Creed).

I had a NVidia Geforce 6800, but it ended up completly frying somehow. It worked great for doing output to my TV via S-Video, but unfortunately the graphics while playing games was a bit choppy and laggy at times. Most of the time it played videos pretty well, other than when I'd preview video's that I'm editing in Sony Vegas and Adobe After Effects.

So just to explain my story, last night my computer randomly shutdown and I could tell that because of the way it shutdown that something was wrong with it. I tried turning it back on and had no luck (The power would glitch on for a split second before slowly dying down). I opened up the case and after messing around with the Power Supply for a bit I realized that the reason it wasn't turning on is because of my NVidia still being plugged into my Power Supply, after I unplugged it my computer would turn on, but I'd hear a loud screeching noise from my PC which was alerting me that something wasn't plugged in correctly (A video card). So I switched out my NVidia Video Card (Sadly, I hated to do this, I loved it) and had to replace it with a shitty ATI 128 Rage All In Wonder Video Card that I had lying around. I haven't noticed much of a difference since replacing i... Read more

Answer:Need help choosing a Video Card for S-Video Output to TV

$20-$30 brand newClick to expand...

Is that the price range current budget allows? If so, understand that is entry level technology that does not fit well with your following statement,



those seem like pretty recent versions of GeForce cards so I'm assuming they would atleast be good for gameplay.Click to expand...

Understand that gaming is one of the most EXTREME tasks we can ask of system resources (CPU horsepower & RAM), and especially graphics resources (GPU horsepower and dedicated graphics RAM). Suggesting a $30 graphics card will "at least be good for gameplay" is not a reflection of reality with today's demanding 3D animated games and the hardware to run them at realistic, widescreen resolutions at 16:10 or 16:9 aspect ratios. If a computer is "good for gameplay", then it is ready for just about any demanding task you could throw at it.





I haven't noticed much of a difference since replacing itClick to expand...

Then why waste money? It would be better to wait until your budget allows you to buy a widescreen LCD TV/monitor that supports a digital input (DVI or HDMI). Then buy a card that supports high resolution, digital graphics and enjoy the hard work programmers put in your favorite programs to give you great graphics. S-Video provides low-resolution analog only.

I recommend for now, you go out to AMD/ATI and make sure you have the latest drivers for your Rage 128 AIW card and stick with that... Read more

No Video through S-Video output in windows.

I have just upgraded my MB and Video Card on a computer I use as an arcade machine.
I need the output to go to a Television through S-Video
The problem is odd because I can see the bios loading and even the "Loading Windows XP Loading bar across the screen on the TV, but once Windows starts the screen goes blank.

Steps taken in preinstall:
I removed all the display drivers prior to installing new hardware and after the install, started the computer with monitor and installed the new Nvidia drivers.

Trouble shooting steps and results:
Pre:
I tried to verify the TV connection but the Nvidia Control Panel will not find my S-Video TV connection, only the VGA is found. I connected the TV and restarted but the TV could still not be found in the Display properties or the NVidia Control Panel.

Result:
The screen DID display on the VGA connection.

Question: No video output

Hi there, thanks in advance for any help anyone may be able to provide... my problem is as follows. Went to turn on my desktop this morning and everything seemed to boot up normally apart from one thing, my monitor is getting no signal it just stays in standby mode! This is a list of the things I have tried so far:Re connected the monitor cablePlugged my laptop into the monitor and it worked fine so doesnt seem to be anything wrong with the monitor.I got another monitor and plugged it into my desktop, no luck there. The monitor doesn't register a thing, it just stays in standby mode.I start thinking my video card is dead so I went and bought a new Nvidia one. The existing video card is attached to the mother board making it unable to remove. I connected the new video card to the AGP slot and connect the monitor to the new output. Still no good, just stays in standby mode. I've tried rebooting with the windows XP disc, still nothing. The Desktop seems to be working fine, not making any wierd noises or anything but I cannot see a thing. Any ideas because I am at a loss? Thanks alot!Edit* I have just realised no lights on my keyboard show up

Answer:No video output

Do you get any 'beeps' when the sysem boots?  Normally, you will get 1 beep which indicates the system sees itself ok.  Any other beeps will mean you've got issues... as if you didn't already know that  How many RAM sticks do you have?  If you've got more than one, pull the other out and see if it works.  The other thing you can try is to remove any other expansion cards (modem, network, etc.) and see if it will boot properly.Also, do you have a spare power supply?  If so, swap it out and see what happens.Alan <><

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.

Question: No video output

My parents have a Gateway that they've been using since 02. It's worked fine until now, and all I've added to it was a PCI video card (PNY Nvidia FX 5200). The problem arose when the computer was booted and all that was displayed was the monitors sort of box for changing the brightness/contrast ect. I have connected this monitor to my laptop and used it as a display to test it, it works fine. I've also tested 2 other monitors on the computer, still no output. I've moved the connectors to the second vga output, and to the original onboard video, still nothing. I cannot remember if I disabled the onboard video when I installed the video card. I've even tried removing the video card and connecting to the onboard with still no luck. I can't figure out what to do. Is there a way to reset the BIOS back to its default settings without a display? Thank you, all help is appreciated.

Hello.

This problem happened to me once before and to be honest, I don't remember how I fixed it. I think I just unplugged and plugged everything back in.

When I turn my PC on (I think my specs are still under my name--[edit: nope, editing them in]) I get no video output. The monitor just has the yellow standby LED glowing. I thought that maybe just the DVI cable was unplugged or the graphics card was loose or something. I tried every external option first, then after those didn't work (different monitor, cable, etc.) I went inside the PC and removed and replaced the RAM and video card. It still doesn't work. And now I realized that when I turn on the power for my computer, and press the power button again to turn it off after a couple minutes of waiting, it turns of instantly; no 5 seconds of holding it down or anything required. It just obligingly shuts off after less than a second of pressing the button.
My computer has worked fine up until these two occurrences (I fixed it once.)

Any ideas?

Thanks.

P.S. Yes, I'm posting this on a different computer. :P

edit: specs:

8800 GTS 512MB
Q6600
x38 Maximus mobo
2 GB RAM (xms 2 or something I think, I can check if you want me to)
Corsair HX520 PSU

edit: I just double checked and every component's fan starts spinning and if it has LEDs, it lights up. Monitor continues to display "No input" or nothing.

Answer:No video output (I think)?

Does it even POST? If not sounds like time for a BIOS update.

Question: No Video Output

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.

Regards,
Doublekgk
 

Answer: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.

Question: No video output!

I had my motherboard (ASUS P5N-E SLI Intel Socket 775) sent in for RMA because the USB ports didn't work. Other than that, the motherboard and rest of the computer worked 100% fine. I got the motherboard back today and started reattaching things. Once I initially had all the components attached and power supplied to all of them, I attempted to turn the machine on and got no video output.

Considering this was my first configuration (and my previous configuration before RMA), I decided to start messing around with the RAM, removing power from the side fans, the CD drive, the USB ports, etc, to see what would work. I had 4 GB of 800 MHz Patriot RAM (and am running Windows 7 64-bit), and when I removed one of the four 1 GB sticks, I got video out. I got into the OS successfully, and decided to try to add the extra stick of RAM. I shut the machine down, add the extra stick, and again, there's no video output. I was content at this point to say it was a RAM issue, so I took the 1 GB out again with hope of adjusting the RAM timings to make that work.

Then, when I rebooted the machine, it began shutting itself off after a few seconds--but it did give video out before shutting down. My thought then was "This must be a power supply issue!" I also noticed, however, that the computer would always boot, my Radeon 3870's fan would turn on, the power supply fan would turn on, and the heat sink fan all turned on. There's been no little gray cloud shoot out of my... Read more

Hi, I am helping a friend with a 2006 Gateway GT 2555 running Windows XP Media Center. It has no video output at all. 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.

Answer: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.

Answer: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.

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.

Hey guys,
I'm new to the forums, but I figured there wouldn't be a post about this, at least there wasn't on the suggester threads. One of my laptops is a toshiba Satellite 1905-S277. I broke off the motherboard DC jack, and had to disassemble the whole thing to solder a new one on. Thing is, I didn't really know what I was doing when I first started, and I took off the screen, too (for funsies ), and now that I put it all back together, the computer turns on fine but there is no visual. I've noticed there are two wires attached to the monitor, two of them on one line that go into the monitor. One plugs straight in, the other is one of the sliding metal/plastic paper thin ones, that doesn't seem to go anywhere. On the right corner of the monitor is a plug that goes out of the monitor that also doesn't seem to go anywhere. I'm not sure if those two are the problem or if it's something else, but any help would be appreciated, as nothing seemed to work in google. Thanks!

Question: No video output

I've searched the forum but haven't seen anything that's close to the problem I'm dealing with at the moment so I figured it was time to ask.

I have no video output from the pc. There is a graphics card and on-board video and neither of them work. The computer turns on, or rather there is power as the fans run and I can "feel" the harddrive running, however there are no beeps and I can't hold the power button to turn it off, I have to switch it off on the PSU.
I have tried the monitor with a different computer so I know that's not what it is, I've pulled everything out and reseated it, unplugged and re-plugged all cords, quadruple checked to make sure everything is plugged in and correctly. Still no video. I've used different video cords, pulled the graphics card out and just used the on-board video, left it in and tried the on-board, no video.

I don't have another or different video card to try and at this point I can't afford to buy another just to try it if I ultimately will have to replace something else. I'm pretty sure it's not the video card itself and I'm getting more confident that it's the motherboard but I wanted some "expert" advice before I spend the money for a new motherboard.

I'm not computer stupid by any means, but I'm far from an expert and I've never run across this problem before.

I can't see if the harddrive is actually booting up ... Read more

That motherboard doesn't have an onboard speaker listed, so make sure that POST errors are causing beeps at all. To do that, just pull out all of the RAM. Without RAM you get a POST error, and there should be a series of beeps, if there isn't, you don't have a onboard speaker, and may need to connect one.

Also try resetting your BIOS. If you go to page 22 in this PDF: http://america.gigabyte.com.tw/FileList/Manual/motherboard_manual_ga-ma78gm-s2h_e.pdf and short out the CLR_CMOS pins labeled there. That may help at least somewhat, if a bios setting caused this.

Question: video output

I have MGI Video Wave III on my computer. I hooked up my digital video camera and did some editing. Now I want to transfer the new movie from the computer back to my camera and I can't get it to happen. Do I need another connection besides the IEEE 1394 cable?

Hi guys. I like to think I know computers pretty well, but I'm baffled. I started a game up earlier, but as soon as I did, I lost all video output from my computer. Unplugging the HDMI cable from my monitor and plugging it back in gave me a few seconds of video output before it stopped again. Strangely enough, the light on my monitor (which is green when receiving input) is lit, despite looking as though the monitor is turned off. I've tried swapping HDMI cables, changing graphics cards, and unplugging certain unnecessary components to save power in case I was over-doing it, but nothing. I'm certain it's not a heat issue, as every component is cool when the computer is running. If need be, this is the hardware:600w power supplynVidia Gforce GTX 650 (primary card)ATI radon HD 5830 (Output dropped with this also) 8gb of some cheap DDR3 RAM I got online, but I'm certain the issue isn't this. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Question: Video output

Last week, my 430 watt power supply started going bad (started to smell a burning smell)
So, I picked up a 450 watt replacment power supply.
I try out the new power supply; I now have no video output at all, and no power is routed to the keyboard from the motherboard. The computer itself turns on, runs fine, the p35 neo2 MOBO on-board diagnostic lights signal that everything is fine on the mobo.
I plugged back in another power supply. Same problem.
Any help/suggestions?
 

Answer:Video output

Are you running on-board video or do you have a video card plugged in to the motherboard? It is highly possible that the motherboard has been damaged even though all the lights are "normal"...

Question: no video output

today i built my new PC.
All the components (with exception to one of the HDDs) are brand new.

Asus M2N-E SLi Motherboard
corsair 800MHz RAM
400gb WD HDD
XFX 7900gt
AMD 6000+

so anyway, i assembled it all and when i plugged my screen in and turned it on, there was no signal. i was hoping to install windows xp but as there is no signal i cant. I have tried using another screen. The motherboard does not have a standard VGA output which is odd, so i cant try booting w/o the GPU as there would be no way of telling if it was working or not. Should i buy an adaptor for the VGA port that the MB has or is there something else inheretnly wrong with my system?

i have tried using both DVI ports on the GPU and neither of my screens (which both work perfectly, and so do the DVI adaptors i am using) and still no signal. I tried moving the RAM to the other 2 slots to see if that made any difference as i have had a similar problem when there was no boot because the RAM was not detected. Any help would be greatly appreciated, I cant think what the problem is as i have tried all to solve all the things i think that could be the problem.

thanks in advance
 

Answer: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.

Question: No video output

Hi Guys,

I am hoping you all can help me to troubleshoot an issue. I have two systems here. One is an IBM rebuild that I am afraid to open up because the case would break. Literally. Looking for a new case for it. The other is a home built system that I got about two years ago.

Thursday evening, I turned on the first system to look at it's specs. It was brought to me wiht a modem issue so I wanted to see if it even had a modem installed. As soon as I turned it on, I got something like an "Ann Clist" error which I have never seen before and another error telling me that the system was too unstable and would shut down. I haven't had any video output since then.

The other system had been put away for about a year due to not having a monitor for it. I finally got another monitor and plugged her in. She seemed happy. Turned her back off and set her up. Turned her on the next day to do my defrag and such. No video output.

On this system, I traded out the video cards as well as the RAM and it still did not work. There were no beeps coming from the motherboard at all. I can hear everything spinning up and running such as fans and hard drive.

I have tried different monitors and these montiors do work with other systems. The outlets are giving enough power as I have had other systems plugged in and they work. It shouldn't be a power supply issue as I plug the monitors directly into the power strips and not the back of the systems.

Question: No video output

The symptom is that there is no video output from the PC. There are no beeps when the power is turned on.

Tried on 2 different monitors.
I've tried the onboard video card and the PCI video card.

I have tested the PSU with a multimeter.

I reset the CMOS by removing power and the battery (there is no jumper I can see). I figured since I had my multimeter already out, I'd test the battery: 0.5v. Hmm. Anyway, it should still boot, but it might have issues with the BIOS clearing out.

I put the battery back in after waiting about 15 minutes and it booted! Well, sort of. It started to load Windows and then the screen went dark again - no signal, and stayed there.

I'm thinking motherboard. Anyone think otherwise?

EDIT: I was playing around with it some more and this time when it finally booted, I got into BIOS. I was checking settings and such, and it rebooted! It's a symptom of overheating but being in BIOS doesn't cause much heat at all. Very strange.

Answer:No video output

Can you post the temps?

Is your heat sync properly seated and working?

Question: No Video Output :(

Hello everyone,

I am having a real difficulty upgrading my old desktop computer. There is no screen output .

I have bought a second hand "working" ASUS M2N-NVM/S. It is an OEM board that has come from a Packard Bell I-Media <----- That is the motherboard I have.

I have installed it into a case and then fitted one of these CPU's

I then fitted 1GB 800MHz RAM just as a test because I knew that RAM works as it is what is in my other computer now as I type.

I plugged in my screen into the onboard vga slot and turned it on and nothing happened. All the fans on the case and CPU started spinning but there were no beeps or no video on the screen.

I then thought that maybe the onboard graphics had been turned off as it was from someones old gaming machine so I installed a known working Nvidia 9400GT 1GB and turned the PC on. Still there was nothing.

I am now completely confused and don't know what else to try. I tried turning it on without RAM, CPU, and Graphics card to see if I got any beeps but nothing happened.

Any help with this would be greatly appreciated.
Thanking in advance
Jack-O-Bytes.

Answer: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

I have a Mesh power PC with AMD 64 3500 chip 1024 MB RAM, Radeon 9800 Pro Video Card. This has been working fine for some months (after having various components replaced by Mesh!)Yesterday when carrying out a simple wordprocessing task the screen suddenly went blank with a NO SIGNAL text on it. Nothing I could do would bring the screen back to life. I checked all cables were firmly fixed. The computer tower was operating but as I had no video output to the screen, I then could not turn off the computer except by the main power button on the tower. It rebooted, got as far as inputting pasword then the screen went dead again. Next time I got as far as getting WORD up on screen then it died again. Finally, again only by turning off at the Tower button, all came back to life. I ran a scan and all is well. I then left it switched on for another couple of hours and all well since.Can anyone explain what happened? It was warm yesterday but the room was only about 75 degrees maximum and the tower etc is well ventilated. The fan in the computer seems large enough as it is and always has been certainly noisy!Is the video card at fault? Or could it be that the computer design will not permit operation at 72-75 degrees? Is it overheating and would that be the symptom even though the computer had not cut out, just the video output?

Answer:Loss of Video Output

Maybe the card is not seated in MB properly and you lost connection through that, or if its still in warrenty get it replaced.Computers in Spain work ok in temps well in excess of yours, its been in the 40`s cel. just lately, but summer is still on the way ;-))

Howdy, I need to capture video output from the video card to the monitor in an editable format.

Basically I'm helping create some training videos for new software and would like to be able to make a video of someone using the software real-time and overlay some audio. We have the editing software, but I need something to capture the video. I just want to record what the monitor displays, though being able to record input at the same time may be nice. Not quite sure if keeping the video and audio separate would be best, seems like it would though.

Fraps looks like it'll do the job, but seems tailored to gaming apps only, or I'm missing something incredibly simple. When I load Fraps and hit the record video hotkey nothing happens.

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.

It dosn't have the compressed video file appearance. Mine does. What could be the problem? Is it in codecs? Some video settings? Is the All-In-Wonder series just built for spectacular video playback?

ATI cards have always been better at rendering crisp images when it comes 2 DVD/PICs. Compare any similar ATI/NVIDIA cards and almost always ATI will come on top when it comes to non-gaming situations, thats just the way it is. Sorry i cant get any more in depth then that.

I confirmed that I have the 12 pin connector and both 4 pin connectors on the motherboard and on the video card I made sure the power connectors were listed there. The second video card I tried did not require extra power connectors.

I have the ram in channels A1 and A2, leaving B1 and B2 empty.
There is a single power indicator on the motherboard and when connected to power it lights green.

There are no system beeps or anything when it starts up but it doesn't seem to power down or reboot or anything. I took one stick of ram out of A2 and now it gives 3 long beeps when starting up but still no video output.

Hi,

in this post I showed the parts for my new build and got some help in terms of a new power supply, which I bought and installed. It seems to work fine, and the machine powers up.

But, I get no video output at all.
When I power the machine up, the led's on the keyboard light up, so I think that is being recognized.

I believe the graphics card is seated properly.
I believe the ram is installed properly, but I could be wrong.
The power is connected to the graphics card...I'll try some other connectors to make sure.
When I power the macnine up, the cpu and case fans start spinning, the fan on the graphic card spins.
I do not get any beep codes (which leads me to believe the ram is ok)
I did not make any changes to jumper settings on the mobo when I installed it, I left everything at the default value.
I have plugged the monitor into both of the graphics card input, and the plug on the mobo itself.
the monitor works for another machine

any ideas?
