    epia M mobo, video driver problems

    I setup an in car pc yesterday, and it loaded up fine to 640x480 with 16 colors, then i put in the 4-1 drivers to update everything, and i restart and i get no signal to the screen. Im assuming the resolution is to high or the RCA output is not activated after than update. What can i do to prevent this?

    I had the same problem. Are you running win XP?

    What happened with mine is VGA was set as default instead of TV-out. Happened when I installed the newest 4-1 drivers. On post and boot the tv-out would work, then it would default back to VGA. What I did was go into the Display Properties, and changed the output to TV. From then on out it's always defaulted to tv-out.

    how did you go to properties and do that if you couldnt see the screen? Or did you do that BEFORE you installed new drivers, because i feel like that option isnt available, maybe i should run xp (which was the plan anyways) and then i can set that to default before installing new drivers.. right?

    The new drivers will override your defaults anyway, because it has new defaults.

    I actually had to use another computer to get it right. I use a program called RealVNC which lets you use a remote computer across the network like you're sitting right in front of it.

    What you should have did, is installed the new drivers, and before you rebooted set your tv-out as default. I think that would work.

    I had the same thing happen to me when I loaded my 4-1 drivers. It turns out the thing switches over to outputting the signal on the S-VGA adaptor. I hooked it up to my television and switched it back to CRT in BIOS, although it was pretty hard to read! Big relief when it rebooted on the LCD.
