What could this problem be?

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
I've been having trouble with this motherboard for months, literally months. I rmaED it abotu 4 times already. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16813138049
I bought this a while ago, since I was just trying out some new boards, but I guess that's what you get for buying cheap boards. But I still want to figure out what is causing this, is it really the motherboard..? I connected a monitor to the on board video and nothing shows up when I turn the computer on, I hear everything running, but nothing is posted in the monitor. I even tried putting a vga card to test it, it still doesn't work. I tried different monitors, and it still doesn't work, so all I can blame is the motherboard, since I had different problems with it.


And I bought an Asus board, but this board is good. I acidentally pushed the ide incorrectly, since I couldn't see what I was doing, so one of the pins were pushed back, then everything started to start posting slow, though it still works. I fixed it, but it still seems slow, and I know it shouldn't be so slow loading, since my older computers are still faster than it in posting to the desktop. Anything I can do? It still as the manufacturer warranty, so should I try to have it checked out?

It's such a horrible bored. The last board, I had was good, but then one of the usb slots were malfunctioning. Never will I buy another Biostar again though... There techs aren't that good either. So I should rma both boards right? I like the asus one, but it was my fault for screwing it up a bit. =_=

RMA the ASUS. The biostar doesnt sound like a problem with the board if youve had the same problem through 4 RMA's. Does it work for a while after you RMA it? It sounds like a memory issue to me. Try pulling everything off of the board except the PSU, monitor, cpu, and one stick of memory. Then start it up. If that gets you a video signal, then shut it down and add one thing. Everytime you get a video signal shut it down and add one more thing until you figure out whats causing the malfunction. If you only have one stick of memory try a different brand or something. Good luck.

Oh, thanks for the trouble shooting. But it worked before so I thought it was odd. It was a different problem each time, but now it's the same problem with the first time. Thank you anyways, I will try this out first.
