  2. Hi all,
    Built a new pc with pc chips 825 main board which i believe has
    on-board graphics. Tried to use monitor (lg)from my existing (time uk )pc,
    but it is blank on boot-up and stays that way. I am assuming any monitor
    would work, obviously i'm wrong!! Pc seems to boot ok.

    Any help much appreciated!!

    I would have expected the VGA to have worked right away on any monitor.
    Did you reset the BIOS with the jumper (J2 perhaps) as directed in the
    manual, the BIOS could be in any ole state otherwise.

    You do have a manual for the motherboard don't you, and have read it?
    If not you can easily download one from PCChips website.
