    Go into the Advanced BIOS page and set Init Display First to PCIE.

    Are you using the latest BIOS?

    How are you checking what graphics is being used?

    Use GPU-z if you are not already, it will tell you what is in use

    No, it should be automatically disabled when a working graphics card is installed into the system.

    I don't even think you can choose onboard in Init First, if there is a graphics card installed. Not sure on that, but I do believe you can't.

    Are you sure the graphic card works?

    Hi guys,

    I found this post whilst searching for a solution to the same problem - what a nightmare.

    The irony is I'm a computer techie, and I'm still completely stumped by this one - let me run through what has been done up to now:

    Specifications:

    Intel i3 540
    Gigabyte H55M-S2 - updated to latest BIOS revision
    2x2GB Cosair XMS3 DDR3 1600MHz RAM
    Nvidia G210
    450W PSU

    I'll omit the other stuff like drives as they have been removed anyway.

    Procedure:

    1) Test graphics card on another system. Graphics card confirmed working.
    2) Test different video outputs on card. All working, just not on the problem system.
    3) Test different graphics card (GTX 295). Problem still occurs.
    4) Check BIOS settings allow discrete graphics card to function. Confirmed correct.
    5) Reseated graphics card. Problem still occurs.
    6) Reseated RAM. Problem still occurs.
    7) Reseated CPU. Problem still occurs.
    8) Tested RAM for errors. None found.
    9) Tried individual sticks of RAM. Problem still occurs.
    10) Replaced PSU with 650W model. Problem still occurs.
    11) Replaced motherboard with same model. Problem still occurs.
    12) Replaced CPU with Intel i3 550. Problem still occurs.
    13) Banged head on the table. Problem still bloody occurs...

    As you can see the tests above are quite extensive. Have tried contacting Gigabyte to no avail; have also tried posting on their forums but nobody has an answer.

    You can probably appriciate the frustration I am feeling at the moment - the only other thing to do is try a different motherboard altogether but I still want to know why this isn't working in the first place.

    Just a bit of extra information - this 210 GPU doesn't require any additional power, it grabs it's power from the PCI Express x16 lane; which it definately is doing because the heatsink fan spins up no problem. It just doesn't get detected by the motherboard.

    Any help would be greatly appriciated!!!

    I am having the same problem. I'm putting together a system for someone using:

    Nvidia 8400 GS by Sparkle
    Gigabyte G41M-ES2L

    I would say it was the card (since the onboard works), except I KNOW the monitor is picking up a signal from the way the monitor behaves; the No Signal warning goes away at the appropriate time, but the monitor enters power saving mode, rather than displaying the POST, which happens (single beep). Also, hooking up the onboard with the card plugged in gives me no display, which says to me the mobo is initializing PEG, which it should be. To achieve display, I have to extract the card and use onboard. Both ports on the card act the same (it has female DVI and VGA).

    Any thoughts would be fantastic. You can take a look at HCS and assume I've gone through similar steps (though not to that length/expense). i.e. The card works in another machine, switched PSUs (though this card doesn't require additional power).

    When trying the card in another machine and it works, the Nvidia BIOS (??) for the card pops up first, then moves to the system BIOS. Perhaps this has something to do with it.

    Solved?

    I hooked up the computer to a different display. I was using an old CRT, switched to my 24" widescreen and it works like a charm. 2 old CRTs and an old flatscreen ("old" = more than 5 years, CRTs 10+) do not work, but my new one does. Frequency possibly?
