View Full Version : New Build Onboard Graphics Not Detected?
03-29-2009, 03:27 PM
I just put my computer together. When I turn it on, the monitor light goes yellow and no display appears on the monitor so I can't get into the BIOS or go any further with the build. When I turn on the computer on, I get several loud continuous beeps as an error message, which according to the motherboard manual means the graphics card is not inserted properly. The motherboard says it comes with onboard ati radeon 3300 graphics. How do I get a display on my monitor using the onboard graphics? I don't have a discreet gpu right now.
I am using:
AMD Phenom II x3 710
2gx2 Gskill PC6400 Memory
Antec EA 650 Power Supply
Western Digital HDD
Samsung DVD Burn

the easiest thing to do would be to check the video cable, or possibly switch the cable to a DVI, VGA or HDMI (or whatever is different since that board has all three).
if everything is ok, the system will autosense which port to send video signals to.
worst case scenario is that you'll have to RMA the motherboard.

As MrWicked said, it should just plug into the motherboard and give you picture.
If not it might be screwed up from the graphics card you had in there, in which case I would try resetting the bios or maybe a old pci graphics card.

It is a new build and has never posted because of this error. I unplugged the computer and used a screwdriver to short the cmos poles. same error.

Shorting the cmos poles? If you want to really reset the bios, unplug the psu, and pop out the cmos battery for about 15 minutes.

took battery out, still wont post. 4 long beeps one short error code. wish I new what this means. still no moniter, just yellow light. I have rebuilt this computer and still same result. Manual says continuous long beeps =graphics card, but this has igp. everything powers on, drives fans, usb, etc, If this was memory incompatibility or cpu problem would I at least get to post screen? Wish someone had accurate post codes for this gigabyte motherboard. everywhere I look on the internet says something different. Has anybody had this problem before?
