The MB has integrated graphics + you have an add on video card in the ATI RV100, which device is your display connected to and if the ATI device have you reinstalled the drivers for it (they will be old and possibly hard to find online).


As an asides saraveza408 can I ask if before you had Windows 7 installed did you run the Windows 7 upgrade advisor tool. first.

Ok how do i find out the answer to the 1st question?
And no,i did not run the advisor tool

If you have two video ports on the computer there will be one that is in a vertical position which will be the MBs integrated video port and further down the case there may also be the same type of port but in a vertical position and this would be an add on card that is plugged into the AGP slot on the MB.

Acknowledged regarding the upgrade advisor tool.

Thanks for the pictures :thumbsup:

We now know that you are using an add on video card so I can explain the reason why the other video port would not work, it is because the BIOS has detected an add on video card and disabled the onboard video chip so that the add on video card will work, this is normal :thumbsup:

To see if we can improve the video card performance;
Create a new restore point.
Download and install the CPU to AGP controller driver (#8 on the list).
Restart the computer and see how it goes.
