"system failed vga test" : Asus A7N8X-E deluxe mobo prob
I got a problem with my brand new Asus A7N8X-E dlx mobo.
I've put everything together , meshed my cables.
next day I powered up and I get the POST message : " system failed vga test".
I've put my card (MSI GF fx5600-td128) back in my older pc and it still works. Another,older card (MSI GF4 mx460) doesn't work either.
I cant see a thing on my monitor 'coz the vga card doesn't get recognized. So I cant get into bios.
plz help me.
In the bios (checked with the manual) de "PRIMARY VGA bios" is set to "PCI VGA card". But i cant get into bios without a monitor
Others have told me it doesnt mather what bios is set. As long as there is a card in the pci or agp slot,it should start up.$
did you try to do a reset of the BIOS?
do you have a spare PCI videocard to test and see if maybe the onboard AGP is broken?
I tried to clear CMOS.
disconnected everything from my mobo ,that I dont need yet.
i dont have a spare PCI vga card.
The bios is still standard.
I just bought it last saturday. I installed everything, meshed my cables.
Next day, i started up and got the POST message.
Since then I've been wandering thru numerous forums and abused google.
nothing found that could help me
Maybe, i got to return the mobo to the shop
maybe try :
- other screen / cable
- you disabled everything, does that mean you only stick to the bare minimum ? As cpu, ram and vga ? Try to disable as much as possible, you only need to go in the bios to be sure
- which psu are you using ?
i disconnected everything that i didnt need :
* front panel I/O , extra firewire and usb ports
i ll try with disconnectig the Maxtor 120G SATA HDD, and only 1 Ram slot
I tried another screen and cable
I use and Aopen H600B "black pearl" case and an Aopen 350W psu
thx for the replies guys
I tried disconnecting everything else..... swapped ram into all three slots....
no effect.... still the same error message.
I'm in an e-mail conversation with a helpdesk-worker @ Asus, and they dont know either, prolly faulty mobo = return to retailer
problem solved :
went back to the store and they tested the mobo = AGP slot malfunction.
They gave me a brandnew and tested it at the shop , and it works.
thx to everyone for (trying) to help me
glad it worked out, so that's one more nForce2 mobo added to the DOA list!
