M70e VGA port doesn't work

2012-01-11, 0:51 AM

I added a PCIexpress graphics card so I can run two monitors, but the on-board vga port doesn't work.  Any suggestions?

hey wlkw27a,

welcome to the forums.

before the installation of the PCIexpress card, was the on-board vga port working ?

high possibility that the PCIe card is conflicting with the on-board vga port.

try uninstall all video related drivers, let windows install its generic drivers and see if it works.

Hi. My M70e vga port doesn’t work. When I press power button, with 2 beep sound system starts working and I hear windows starting sound but there is no picture on screen and monitor goes to sleep mode, I should mention that I’ve checked all parts such as  cpu RAM and ext.

And I’ve tried an external vga card that I’m  hundred present sure that works

Beeps at power-on is a POST (power on self test) failure, but are often ambiguous as to what the cause is.  The Hardware Maintenance Manual for this system may have more information.
