    Connecting your monitor

    What happens when you connect the monitor to the
    unnamed Video Card and monitor
    This will disable Onboard.
    This seems more of a video driver problem.
    Do you have a cd ?
    A bios update isn't usually necessary,but your Motherboard cd
    should describe this,or go to the mbd website Support updates.

    No video card

    I meant video cd.
    I may be wrong about an update needing the cd installed.
    But not knowing your OS was probably why.
    If it's XP then you should have a working "unnamed monitor" readable.Right ?Click the desktop for Propertys/settings.Is your video card named there ?
    Then go to ATI,find your OS then your card selection.Follow the rest of selections.
    The remove previous won't apply since you havn't used the lost cd.
    Save the Catalyst and driver download to your desktop,close browser and run it.
    You don't really need the other MMedia right now if you
    have video players.Some free ones are better.You decide.
    Install your monitor driver if it included a cd.
    Get the pdf manual before changes in Catalyst Control Panel.
    Defaults are ok unless you have problems.
