Monitor not working, new computer

  1. my monitor isnt working although the rest does. it is a new computer, asus mobo. only time it works is when i reset cmos. it then turns on and i can get into the bios menu however it shuts off into standby once i quit and save changes, although the keyboard still goes.

    mobo has onboard graphics as well but same thing happens with this as well - even with the graphics card out.

    i cant even get to the screen to update bios.

    this is rather annoying - any advice would help.

    I suggest you edit your profile & add system specs for the mobo, gpu, cpu, OS.

    Under this condition, did you move the monitor connection to check the onboard gpu output?

    This sounds like the mobo does not have an auto-detect for the gpu card or the cmos setting dictates the gpu selection.

    You are describing some sort of inverse logic in play here.

    turn off the onboard video in BIOS when you are using an external graphics card.
