My video card just died. I am trying to use the one that is onboard the motherboard but when I attach my monitor to it nothign shows at all. Doesnt show it booting so I can get to my bios I just get no signal.

 

Is there anyone that can tell me how I can access my onboard video card?

 

The computer is custom made the serial number on the motherboard is 8gb038 01344.

 

Any help will be appreciated.

Hello, and welcome to Bleeping Computer

 

Do you have any extra information on the motherboard? Does it have a manufacturers name on it like MSI, ASUS, etc.?

 

One thing to try is remove the power plug from the PSU. Open the computer and remove the CMOS battery. Hold the power button down for 30 sections. Hopefully this will reset the CMOS and cause it to use onboard video as default. Replace the CMOS battery. Attach the power plug and boot the computer with the monitor attached to your onboard graphics.

Yep I hooked it up to my laptop and came on with no problem. This is my son computer and he had two monitors hooked up and they both went down at the same time. This is why we are assuming the video card

I did a search on the motherboard but the only label I am finding is the one stated earlier. The only thing I can find that may be a name or label is DX10 or GA-MA78g-DS3HP. Im not finding anything else that would help me indetity the motherboard since I cant see anything on the monitor

From what my son tells me he turned on his computer. Everything was fine. Went to get on the internet and then everything went black. I know he has been using his computer with no issues until this happened last night.

The GA-MA78g-DS3HP is the information to identify the motherboard. I hope this will help

does because of this you say that your VGA card died?
 

 

The GA-MA78g-DS3HP is the information to identify the motherboard. I hope this will help

Have you removed the card, good chance it will default to the board video to get into the bios

Yes I found the manual online and downloaded it. Im trying something it stated and will see what happens. I am assuming it because I can hook the monitor up to any other computer and it works except my son's which is where it was connected to initially.  If you can think of anything else I can check I will be happy to try anything.

 

OldPhil:

 

We disconnected the old video card and we are having the same issue. I am hoping its not his motherboard that went out instead. If I do he will be learning how to install it himself with my supervision.
