When I remove the graphics board from the slot and plug my HDMI cable into the on board connection and boot up the system I get the error beeps and a note on the screen saying no video connection.

What board are we talking about? This forum is for Intel Desktop boards. If not an Intel board, you may want to check your bios settings.

It is an intel dh57dd board. The graphics card I was using died and since it has onboard graphics figured I would save some money and use it. However, get the results I mentioned above.

Check the bios video settings.

I did and it is set to auto. Wouldn't that mean if there is no board present it should default to the onboard graphics?

Set it to onboard. Also, what bios do you have?

Not sure where to set it to onboard. Bios is the last one offered in 2011. According to the manual if there is no board present in the PCIe slot then the onboard graphics should be enabled. Is there another place to enable it?

Al (Doc) is correct; Auto should be ok, but try changing it to Onboard if it doesn't seem to work using Auto (this is done with the same parameter).

 

What processor do you have installed?

How much memory do you have installed?

What is at the other end of the HDMI cable?

What are the other settings (for video memory, etc.; parameters are in same scene in BIOS Setup)?

This part of a home theater setup. I5 processor 8 gigs of memory and the hdmi cable is connected to a denon receiver. When I click on the video it only gives me auto, PCIe and PCI full options. No onboard option anywhere I can find in the system bios screens. Thanks for all the help. Get Outlook for iOS<https://aka.ms/o0ukef>

What i5 processor? What memory? Part numbers, please.

 

It sounds like you might have a processor without graphics. That parameter should have had a choice for onboard. Not having this choice tells me BIOS did not detect any onboard (on chip) graphics.

That would make sense. It’s been a few years ago that was installed so I would have to research it. I guess it would be cheaper to just buy another graphics card versus a processor. Get Outlook for iOS<https://aka.ms/o0ukef>

Before you do that, just tell us the model number of the processor.

Do not worry - we will not tell anyone.

Hi guys. Didn't forget you. As I said my graphics card died so I had to get another to just be able to view this message board, So the answer to the processor I have is an Intel I5 760 @2.8Hz. I used the Intel monitor software to get this info so I hope this helps. I did a little checking also and I don't think I have a processor with the graphics core. Probably wouldn't hurt to get one but since this is a LGA 1156 processor I'm limited to used most likely. Maybe you have a source for a replacement?

Thanks again for all your help it has been a learning experience.

That processor does not have graphics:
