Before it start heres the Basic specs of it
Epox - EP-8k9AI motherboard
AMD Athlon XP 1800
Maxtor 80 GB HD
512mb DDR pc2700 RAM
And a Questionable - Link 3D Geforce FX 5200 128mb AGP TV Graphics card.
My problem is that monitor won't come out of stand by on booting
, everything else seems to be working, the harddrive processor and graphics fans all power on which sounds normal. but another is that all the keyboard lights all up and stay on when trying to boot aswell and if u turn it off from the front switch they're still lit (HUM) but my main concern is why the monitor ain't switching on.
i think now it may be a compatability issue with the graphics card but am no expert thats why i need a push in the right direction.
Am thinking the graphics card i have ain't the right type for my board. I've typed the specs of the board and graphics below.
Am i little confused about AGP slots. and my board dosen't have on board graphics so thats a bugger.
