    Unhappy Video Card Power Up Problems

    Hi All,

    I have an Intel Motherboard which I have discovered will not boot without a graphics card plugged in! Big problem!!!

    Has anyone else had this problem or know of a work around? There are no BIOS or jumper settings I can find to solve this one!!

    On every motherboard I've encountered, you have to have a video card, or the system won't boot. I don't think there is a way around this.

    If the motherboard has an Award BIOS, then look under "Standard CMOS Setup". You will find an option to switch between "EGA/VGA", "Mono" or "None". Set it to "None". I believe that the Phoenix BIOS has something similar. Don't know about the AMI BIOS.
