Hey folks ,
bit of a puzzle put my new bits together started up got a “no signal” message and monitor blank. Played about a bit to no avail. I have an adapter hdmi to dvi wondering if that was the problem so installed a old ( real old) gpu in and hey presto it worked. Now wondering if it would be the adapter or setting for on board gpu ( I’d imagine that to not be the case but I’ve bever used onboard gpu before) or could it be the mobo is broken? Any advice please guys sorry for being a pain’

The onboard GPU shouldn’t be any different to use than a discrete card. Just plug the monitor in.
What mobo & CPU did you end up getting?00February 17, 2019 at 9:41 am #30831
I3 8100 and gigabyte z370 Dave. I’m going order a new hdmi- dvi cable try that as the one I had I have no idea where I got it from just hoping it’s that. Thanks for your reply00February 17, 2019 at 9:55 am #30834
It is very often some obscure button on the monitor that needs to be pushed to select the correct display mode. What does the mobo manual say about display modes?00February 17, 2019 at 10:45 am #30837

Sometime ago, and I had a similar problem using an adapter on a mobo DVI to something or vice vice versa – the book with the mobo said that it would not operate with adapters only direct to the screen. Not sure if this is your problems here but might be worth a check.

Thanks guys going to read the mobo manual I’ve ordered the new lead ( just another to tick off) I will have a play with it later let you know how I get on thanks for your time folks00February 17, 2019 at 12:36 pm #30840
HDMI to DVI should be OK, it’s DVI to VGA that needs a DVI socket capable of anaglogue as well as digital.00February 17, 2019 at 1:26 pm #30844
Thanks Dave ? gonna play with it later on try and get rid of edge / cortana etc and check how it runs. Appreciate your time gents thanks.

I’m not sure you can get rid of them, there’s no need to either.00February 17, 2019 at 7:09 pm #30848
Edge – no you are stuck with it for a couple on months until M$ replaces it with the Chrome ram glutton. the worst of Cortana can be avoided by never signing on to it. Most of this is in the security section.00February 17, 2019 at 11:13 pm #30851
Thanks guys, well I’ve set it up as per my liking. Yes couldn’t get rid of edge but I’ve got it working the way I want. Windows wouldn’t accept my key but gave me the option to let it know I had a hardware upgrade then no probs. See come the end of the week when I’ve hopefully sorted the onboard vga out ( with your help like 🙂 ) I will have a little mess with it see how this mp2 thing performs. Seems quick to start but don’t all fresh installs?. Thanks for your advice so for guys

Amazingly it will keep that performance up. Every year there is a major upgrade which is somewhere between the old service packs and a new version of Windows 10. Also SSDs don’t suffer from the same slow downs as HDDs.00February 18, 2019 at 8:25 am #30856

I’ve just upgraded 2 computers in the house. Not brand new parts, except the cpu in one.
H110m-s2h, G3930, Z270a prime I7 6700k, when setting up both had problems with onboard
graphics, the z270 kept giving problems with my R9 390x. Both boards sorted by Bios battery
removal. A proper bios reset. It might sound daft but this seems to be a regular thing with more
modern boards nowadays.00February 18, 2019 at 8:04 pm #30870
Alan, Bios updates are often as a result of the Spectre vulnerability or similar. The keep fixing it only for more holes to appear. Each fix makes your PC run a teensy bit slower. However if you do not like it tough, or choose to use a Raspberry Pi (no predictive branching in CPU)00February 18, 2019 at 10:55 pm #30877
I hope it does keep the speed up Dave. I’ve just added my other ssd’s ( for storage) hopefully my lead will be here tomorrow so I can at least rule that out before I start delving deeper. Alun do you mean battery removal as in cmos reset ( sorry if I’ve misunderstood you)
thanks John00February 19, 2019 at 7:37 am #30884
