    This thread was never about the Unichrome driver? the 899 doesn't use the Unichrome either...

    Not The Solution, But...

    I have had this exact same problem for several months now on the MB899 motherboard. I can't count the number of times I went into VGA Mode, uninstalled drivers, and reinstalled. But, I did find a way to correct the no video display without a driver reinstall, though it does not really explain why the video dropping happens.

    The Intel graphics chipset for 945 has a built-in set of hot keys for display switching and screen rotation. If you plug in your VGA monitor and have no video, use the combination of [CTRL] + [ALT] + F1 to force the graphics to switch to the VGA port. If you use the RCA output for video, use the same combination, except press F2.

    Like I said, this doesn't explain why the video drops, but hopefully it will save everyone a lot of time like it did me. It does say in the MB899 manual that if you plug in a VGA monitor while the machine is running you must use the hotkeys to bring video up on the display.

    If anyone finds a concrete explanation for this and how to permanently remedy it, please let me know.

    Ok, I have somewhat of a similar problem. I can get to the windows splash screen and then it goes black. I disabled my video drivers cuz I was having some problems and I also disabled my network drivers from some bt problems I was having. I tried booting into safe mode and then it hung up, so I rebooted and now I can't even boot into safe mode. So I disable the ide controllers in my bios so I can boot from a cd and tried booting my windows xp disk to do a repair. It loads thru all the or most of the drivers then I get a blue screen. Something to the effect that it can't continue do to computer may have a virus or something and could damage the computer ??? I'm at a lost ?? Any suggestions ??

    I know that everything loads after the splash screen, cuz I can get RR to start by touching the screen where the icon is. I just can't see anything ?? I thought that I could go thru the network connector, but like a tard I disabled it .. So what are my options ?

    Well, since this thread has been revived a bit, I'll add that I have been going through this exact same issue with my MSI Fuzzy 945GM1. I used system restore, but I didn't go through the hassle of installing specific files in DOS. I tried the 945 driver's hotkeys: [CTRL] + [ALT] + F1 for VGA and [CTRL] + [ALT] + F3 for DVI (I think that's how it's set up for my board), and it didn't work. I have no clue what caused it. One time it occured when I inadvertantly pulled my VGA cable. I just set restore more frequently now, and that works, so I'm not really looking for an answer, I just thought I'd add another motherboard to the pile.

    I had the same problem with my iBase MB896F. I thought it was the motherboard, bought a new one...had the same problem. Discovered it was due to my PCI card...and it wasn't a PCI video card, it was an X-FI soundcard. There is a bios setting for the onboard video that is set to detect a PCI card, and if it is set to PCI, the onboard video will probably not load, or will shut off right after the Windows "Loading" boot screen, even if the PCI card isn't a video card. I removed the PCI card, and the video worked fine, installed it, and it didn't work right. I ended up booting in safe mode, reinstalling the 915GM drivers, restarting, going into the bios and changing the setting to "Onboard." For some reason, when I tried changing the bios setting without re-installing the drivers, it still wouldn't work right. But after re-installing the drivers, and changing the setting...I haven't had a problem since.

    This sort of thing makes me want to put an analogue screen in my dash like a CRT rather than the LCD with its finicky resolutions...

    I have had this happen before on a different home LCD as well, but only once. Never happened on any CRT I have ever had, and when it happens on my LCD, if I plug in a spare big honkin CRT, it works...

    Similar problem for me

    I have a Lilliput 7" VGA Touchscreen 629GL-70NP screen. One day I accidentally pushed the auto adjust button which messed up the resolution or something. The screen went black and it says out of range. The only way I can get the screen working is by boot into vga boot safe mode or something. It's one of the options to boot up. It boots up fine then im running low bit color or something. Also now when I put it into hibernate and when I boot it back up, its just a black screen.

    I can see the windows xp loading screen everytime along with the bios stuff scrolling by. I'm going to attempt to fix it later this afternoon but I have no idea what I'm going to do. It's something to do with the video drivers or xp resolution settings or something to do with the resolution of my monitor. Also when my screen does that auto adjust, my touch screen gets out of alignment for some reason.

    Also streetdeck rocks but the navigation portion of it sucks. Well worth the money I paid for streetdeck though if I could get this damn video problem fixed.
