Integrated graphics driver

Ok, so if a system has integrated graphics, and a vga out, you don't necessariy HAVE to have a card to run it,correct?
So obviously, this is without a card installed...
Messing with an older Athlon/Asus setup and I installed a new CPU (X64 5000)
and it wont even post. The HDD spins up, mobo lights, but nothing getting to the monitor. I DID buy a used CPU, and it APPEARS to be fine( no bent pins,etc)
I'm thinking it needs a card either way..??

Nope... if it's got a VGA plug on it, it's got built in graphics, most boards do these days.

Have you tried a CMOS reset?

It's an Asus board so it probably has a CMOS reset jumper... You'll need to download the manual for it to be sure...

The squence is quite easy...

1) totally power down the machine (unplug it)
2) Move the jumper to the "clear CMOS" position
3) Turn the power back on and start the computer
4) Move the jumper back to it's operating position

This should give you a "CMOS setting bad" message (or similar).
In any case it should get you to the video...
Press Del to go into the BIOS and go through the settings.
I'm betting it's had a buscard video in it and the on-board video is disabled.

No I haven't tried that actually...duh I think if you just move the jumper and wait like 3 min the put it back it clears it, right? I'll check websoite to be sure. Thanks for the memory purge. I needed that apparently

Umm, you should NEVER power up your rig with the jumper setting on clear CMOS, as it could damage your motherboard. Every rig I own has that stated in the manual. It will also void any warranty. All you need to do is set the jumper to clear CMOS, and then wait a few minutes and change it back. The motherboard battery is sufficient power to clear it. And you should NEVER attempt to change jumper settings while the motherboard is powered up.

Yes, that is the proper protocol.

Phew! I was hoping I would catch you before you powered up with the clear CMOS jumper shorted. I almost had a heart attack....LOL

By the way, CommonTater gives really good advice, he just happened to make a mistake in this instance. You can trust him to bring you the rest of the way home with this troubleshooting procedure, no problem.
