Hi all

I have a Pentium 4 machine with a Gigabyte GA-8I915G-MF/GA-8I915GM motherboard

This motherboard has onboard VGA (video card) which i believe has failed because when i try turn on the PC It's blank and says "No Video Output" but the machine sounds as if it is booting no problem at all - there are no beeps on startup or anything.

I have tried:

a) Plugging in a different monitor - same problem
:thumbsup: Checking all plugs inside - all are fine.
c) Reset CMOS with Jumper and by removing battery and putting back in
d) Bought a new PCI-E video card - plugged it in and still the same thing.

I believe the onboard VGA card is not allowing the motherboard to use the new video card I bought....

Is there any way I can remove it? or tell the motherboard to bypass it?

I can't get to the BIOS to specify which device to use for video output because I can't see the screen lol!

Any help would be hugely appreciated!!!! Thanks guys

the machine sounds as if it is booting no problem at all - there are no beeps on startup or anything.

Are there any other indications of bootup activity? You should hear a single beep at the conclusion of the POST.
