by coolbgdog / November 5, 2005 7:03 AM PST

Whenver I turn my computer on with the vga adapter connected to the onboard gfx nothing shows on the screen. The button is yellow. When I connect it to my radeon 9600 pro card it comes on. I enabled the video in my bios and nothing happens.

A video card plugged into the AGP slot????

Have you tried enabling the onboard in the BIOS and removing the video card??

There are two different connectors, correct???

If you have a graphics card plugged into your mother board, it takes precedence over your on-board video. The on-board video will not work as long as the graphics cards is in your system. Don't worry about plugging in your monitor to the on-board plug. Use your graphics card plug and enjoy! Happy

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
