Q: on-board video

I think I have a problem with my on-board video but I'm not 100% sure. Last night while on my computer, my monitor would go black and the power light on the monitor would go from green to amber. This happened several times. The only thing I could do was to turn off the computer and turn it back on. It's an Emachine and I don't know if I could disable the on-board video. But that doesn't matter because I don't have any available slots open to install a video card anyway. What do you think the problem could be?

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.)

A: on-board video

It could be the graphics chipset is over-heating, but that would be unusual in a system that has it onboard, as those GPUs are pretty low powered. Unless you over-taxing it with a high-power game or similar at the time?

Its more likely that the connection between PC and monitor is dodgy. Check that the monitor lead is really securely fixed in place, that there are no bent pins either end of the connector lead, and also that the connector to the motherboard is also secure.

Has anyone trodden on the monitor data cable, or could it have got damaged in some other way?

First, my specs. P51 with Xeon processor, 64GB of ram, Win 10 Pro, NVIDIA Quadro M2200 Video, Intel HDGraphics P630 Video, Docking Station.  I have two external monitors via my docking station, one on the VGA other on the HDMI port. I also have two monitors via Sabrent USB to VGA devices. While I was out of town last week, Windows delivered an update to the Intel P630 graphics. Got home, put my P51 in the docking station. Bam, video driver keeps crashing, reverting to the basic driver and disabling all my external monitors.  I finally tracked it to the Intel P630 driver, I can uninstall it and reboot and it works fine for a while, but then after a reboot it crashes again.  I've tried reinstalling the NVIDIA driver from both their site and the Lenvo support site, no change. I looked for the P630 driver, but couldn't find it on the Lenovo site, at least as an independant download. It may be included in some other download. I did try getting the P630 from the Intel site, but what I downloaded said it wasn't compaitble with my machine.  Right now it has the same image on the internal monitor and the two monitors hooked to the docking station.

Hi all,
I have a dell here with on board video that has failed (someone literally pulled the connector off of the motherboard). The system should be fine otherwise, therefore I was wondering if I could put in a old style PCI video card into one of the PCI slots (it does not have a video slot) and have it work. Or would the onboard video cause conflicts? I know that with some BIOS's you can turn off the onboard video, and this is usually a option if the motherboard has a video slot available (agp, PCI Express). Of course this motherboard does not and is a dell cheapo.

I am thinking it will probably work but thought I would ask before getting a card for it.

Attached is a pic of a board where the Sub-D connector was pulled from the board, and when it was pulled it shorted out the board, and a PCI card would not work.

Yet another problem needing a solution. I was given yet another PC assembled by my brother (part of the problem). I have everything working except for needing better video. The on-board video only gives me the options of 2 or 16 color @640 x 480 pixel . I obviously need better graphics capability for many of the programs and games we would be using. I have a PCI video card left from a former AGP upgrade on another system that I think should work. I need someone to walk me thru the procedures to deactivate the on board video and install and activate the PCI replacement. All I know about the mother board is what the owners manual tells me. I see no specific instructions on this particular procedure.

The MOBO is a Micro ATX Socket 370 1st Mainboard FR33 with a 733 mHz processor (Cyrix.... I think)....Award BIOS

I've looked all over in the BIOS for a enable/disable on board video...no luck

A:on board video died?

Although it's usually something else don't forget to try another monitor. On some MBs with onboard video adding a PCI video card will disable the onboard, but on some it won't so that can still be the problem. Start with everything removed except CPU/HS/Fan, RAM(one stick if you have two) and video. Try resetting BIOS with either the MB jumper or removing the battery. After that it's replacing parts. What make and model do you have for a system?

We think we need to go into the BIOS and change the information related to graphics around to do the PCI Express Graphics Card instead of the on board. The problem is that when we boot it up it wont show anything. Any suggestions?

By changing from 4mb to 8 mb the memory usage has to affect something else? Right? (besides the improved video)

When I'm adjusting my many icons and shortcuts on my desktop, often, particularly when I change resolutions, all of the icons will bunch together in the upper left corner of my screen, requiring me to rearrange them again. As I'm dragging them to the right locations, often the mouse travels across the screen, but the image of the icon has frozen part of the way across. It has transparency. I hold my mouse in place waiting, then after some 20 to 30 seconds, the icon snaps into the new spot where my mouse cursor is positioned. Is this a video card "overload" problem? My video is on-board, as delivered in the machine.

Should I consider replacing this on-board video or do I have another problem? It's been this way since new.

I have an Intel Mainboard that runs in Dual Channel configuration and uses RAM in pairs. My computer has a total of 2 Gigs of System RAM and I just found out that I have mismatched pairs of RAM in my system. Two of my strips are Corsair DDR400 RAM with 8 chips per strip and two of my strips are some generic DDR400 RAM I have never heard of with 16 chips per strip.

I have always been told that for the best performance the RAM has to be identical (ie: same number of chips on each strip and same number of chips on the front and the back of each strip). What I would like to know is how much of a performance hit am I taking with mismatched RAM in my computer?

If I remove the generic RAM and eliminate the mismatch even though I have cut my RAM in half will I really benefit from having a 'matched' set of RAM in my computer or should I leave the mismatched pairs of RAM in my computer?

Also, I have been seriously thinking about putting a Video Board into my computer. Right now, I have 72 Megs of dedicated onboard Video (it doesn't steal from system RAM).

Would I be better off spending my money to bump the RAM back up to 2 Gigs or am I fine with 1 Gig of System RAM and better off getting a Video Board with 256 Megs of RAM?

Thanks for the assist.

If I put the video card in a slot(there are 3) the computer will not boot up. If I remove the SIS 620 device, windows reinstalls it when I boot up again. I cannot find any program to remove related to video or video drivers.

It dosen't appear that there is a jumper on the board related to video in the manual I found on the internet. The manual does state that a Video card can be installed.

I have searched the forum and found out that this is a common problem, but didn't find anything specific for my motherboard.

Your AGP is in most cases going to be faster than any PCI card you can put in there. Most likely it is your drivers that are in need of upgrading...maybe DirectX also. If you are intent on changing it, the setting you are looking for is probably in the BIOS. Some motherboards disable the onboard one when another one is plugged in. Look in the BIOS first.

We set up the parts, hooked up a toggle switch to the power switch and turned the system on with a harddrive that was wiped clean. We are unable to get any video display at all. It seems to boot, the fan runs but no beeps.
I then went out and bought an AGP video card. It is a G-Force FX 5200 and installed it into the AGP slot. We still can't get it to boot any further than the cpu fan.

I have recently purchased a new video card, that didnt work because of my power supply, and it required that i uninstall my current video card (on board), so i did, but as i said, the card didnt work for certain reasons. Now im stuck for a while until i save up for the new card with no display device at all. How do you think i can go about reinstalling my on board card? Im pretty sure the pc didnt come w/ any software for it.

Thanks

Reset CMOS either by moving the jumper on your motherboard or removing the CMOS battery for 15-20 minutes.

I know there have been many wise posts that advise using Vista drivers from the computer maker. I have tried Dell -- indeed, I spent more than an hour having a email conversation with a Dell tech who finally suggested I try an Intel web site. There were a few likely prospects at Intel but I couldn't get any of them to do the trick. I wind up with such a poor resolution that I can't read an entire page, with a slightly higher resolution the colors get overly saturated making everything almost unreadable.

I am running a Dell Dimension 2400 with Vista Business. 2 gigs of ram. It was all running fine until I had to do a Vista reinstall.
 

A:Driver for Dell on-board Video

The integrated Intel 865GV video you have isn't supported by Vista which is why you're having trouble finding drivers for it.

Did you install an XP driver for it by chance? Check in Programs and Features to see if it lists an Intel Extreme Graphics or Intel GMA driver and if it does uninstall it. And/or go to Device Manager and uninstall the Intel video driver and restart the computer and let Vista reinstall it. Vista does have many built in drivers that work with cards that aren't officially supported, also check the Windows Update site, you'll have to ask it to do a scan and then select to view the Optional updates to see if there's any driver updates.

Also try updating the Intel Chipset drivers, sometimes that helps too: http://downloadcenter.intel.com/Det... Vista* Home Premium, 32-bit version&lang=eng

Im working on a pc that has a on-board video port, and for some reason when I turn the pc on the screen is black and I get a series of long beeps, my first reaction was to swap out the memory because I know that is a big one for pc's not being able to boot. So with new ram it still has the same result, so I tried to install a pci video card because this pc doestn have a ago slot. Also I cant get into the bios to disable this on board video port.

A:Specs on on-board video card

What exactly do you wish you know about it?

Here's the specs on the chipset:
http://www.sis.com/products/sis661fx.htm
http://www.sis.com/products/sis661fx_features.htm
http://www.sis.com/products/sis661fx_benefits.htm

And since its based on the SiS315: http://www.xbitlabs.com/articles/video/display/sis315.html

SIS graphics are not even close to being in the same league as ATI and NVidia dedicated video cards. Even the older Radeon 8500/9xxxx or Geforce 3/4/FX series cards will outperform it in almost every game and without using 64MB of your system memory and at better quality.

Here's some benchmarks: http://www.xbitlabs.com/articles/chipsets/display/int-chipsets-roundup.html
