Ive had this mother board for about 6 months and the damn thing refuses to admit that the video card that i have (radeon x800 GTO) exists, the video card receives power but the boot screen doesnt show it on there. i have installed the drivers and the card is not broken for it works on my other pc. ive also installed the new drivers (so dont say that will fix it) ive tryed asking the tech support people who make the mother board and the guy i talked to must have never seen a real computer because after saying instal the drivers twice after i told him twice i had, he said that he had no idea and i should A) buy a new one or b get the damn thing replaced. the mother board has onboard video and ive disabled that but still nothing. im reaching my wits end and im about to throw the damn thing out the window and buy a new shinny mother board from people who know what their fing talking about. (you guys probly know the amont of frustration im in right now, its on a global scale) :flowers: :trumpet: :inlove: :thumbsup:

I take it you are getting no signal to the monitor?

Does the monitor (what type of monitor is it?) power light flash, or does it go orange? Are you getting the message no signal?

What cable are you using? DVI-D / A / I or DVI-Analog converter? I would suggest (if you are able) trying to swap them around to see if it makes a difference, you would be surprised...stranger things have happened!

You said you have already disable on-board video in the BIOS (which it should do automatically anyway)....Have you updated the BIOS?

Let me know how you go...

Instructions for updating the BIOS should be in the motherboard manual.

Long, long ago in the mystical land of Central California, I installed a video card on my motherboard, and it didn't work. That is until I changed a jumper setting on the MB. Have you looked into that? (I've never heard of a MB requiring you to change BIOS settings and a jumper setting. Then again, I haven't looked too hard.)

Try this (from here)

If you are not interested in overclocking, the default settings will be fine with a few exceptions described below.

If you don't use the onboard video, select

Advanced Chipset Features > OnChip and PCIe VGA selection: [Disable Onchip VGA if have PCIe VGA]
because otherwise part of the physical memory will be locked for the onboard video whether you actually connect a display to it or not.


Select

Advanced Chipset Features > CPU to NB Frequency: [800 MHz] or [1000 MHz]

Advanced Chipset Features > NB to SB Frequency: [800 MHz] or [1000 MHz]
The performance of the onboard video will degrade significantly if these values are lower than 800 MHz. Note that [400 MHz] is the default value in some versions of BIOS.


If your memory is "performance" RAM, then you may need to raise DDR Voltage slightly for the system to run stably. Check the specifications of your memory. To change DDR voltage, go to

Cell menu > Voltage control > Adjust DDR Voltage (V)
and use the + or - key to increase or decrease the value.

Hey connorstovall42

I have the same problem with the board. There is an issue with the pci-e bus or somthing. The board runs great but wont work with a video card. Ive RMAd my board once they repaired it - and it worked with my 7600GT for about 3 months than failed yesterday. Ive got a new RMA number and a promise that they will replace the board this time. RMA sucks especially when you have to dig the motherboard out of the PC. My first experience with MSI RMA was quick, was about 3 weeks from the ups store to a box on my door.

Id be interested to see how widespread this issue is.
