Video Problems with MS mobo

Discussion in 'A+ Certification' started by Wayne A Lewis, Dec 22, 2003.

  1. I recently put in a Mach Speed MZ_830CF motherboard in another system. I
    found all the neccesarry drivers online while I'm waiting for MS to send me
    another Magic Install Disk (drivers). I am running win98SE. When I restart,
    the integrated AGP VGA boots correctly, but when I power cycle after the box
    has been off for more than a minute, it starts to boot but then goes to a
    blank screen. Then I have to power cycle and it goes to safe mode -- reboot
    and get an adapter error message -- I reconfigure display settings again to
    get it to work. but like I said; it warm boots fine.

    Also If I remove the driver and restart, Windows detects a PCI VGA not an
    AGP. But then it installs the sis630/730 video (the correct one.) ???

    Also sometimes when I shut the system down normaly an then cold boot, it
    runs scandisk as though it powered itself off to quick. ???

    I have tried every thing I can think of including all power supply voltage
    tests with a meter. Any suggestions at all would be greatly appreciated.


    A+, Net+ (but allot of good that is doing me here)

    You might want ot check the settings in the Bios. Go through them slowly...
    you should find some answers in there.
