I just built my new system. ECS K7S5A mobo, 1,4Ghz athlon, Seagate 40gb HD, ATI allinwonder 128 pro agp.
The problem is, I believe, the Bios wont pick-up on the AGP video card, as it is preset to pick-up only the PCI flavor of video cards.
When I turn it on,(the first time power has been applied to any of these components-brand new) there is no display at all. nothing is installed-drivers or software or windows.
I cant change the BIOS if I cant see the screen.

the manual states to check that jp4 jumper (which is the clear cmos jumper) is set to normal. did you check for this?
is the video card fully inserted? the board supports agp, so it will pick it up as long as the video card and motherboard are not defective.
if these things don't work ,then, do you have a pci video card on hand to try to determine if maybe the agp slot is the problem?
hope this helps

I checked the jumpers and they are all set correctly. One thing I forgot to mention- Im getting eight beeps meaning "no video card detected". What it says in the manual, is that the BIOS setup should be changed to AGP from the default setting PCI in the display preferences. My problem is that it doesnt get to the BIOS setup screen with my AGP video card. Is this normal for BIOS to be preset to one or another and not detect the other? I think my only option is to get a PCI videocard, reboot, change the setting to AGP, shut down, and reinsert the AGP card. It just seems like the Bios makers would have an auto detect for both types. I hope I'm wrong.

is it showing anything at all during post with the agp card?
on my machines i was able to change to agp in bios after installing the card, before booting to windows
your "option" would be my next course of action too.

just went back further in this post and read that you can't see anything at all with your agp card so scratch that question

I am building MY first system for myself. I have a ecs l4s8a2 mobo, ati radeon 9500, 2 512mb pc2700 333mhz ram, P4 2.8GHz. I have no display on boot!
This is what i have done:
Checked the wiring 2000000000 times
Checked the jumpers 1999999999 times
Checked master/slave 1999999998 times
took the vid card out
took the cpu out
took the ram out
took everything but mobo out
This is what i DONT think it is:
The power supply - i have fans and spin up
The processor - retail box with shrink wrap
The ram - beeps when none installed
The HD - brand new wd 80gb 8mb
The vid card - tried an ati aiw 8500
The monitor - tried another monitor
Any advice fellow techys?

I have the same problem i'm on a gigabyte 7nnxp ati 9800 all in wonder. ect with the rest of the stuff and was wondering if you guys had found a way to fix what you were talking about. If you did and you can get back to me on my email that would be great. I get a blank screen when i boot up and even when i tried an old known to work pci vga card it still wouldn't give me a screen.
So yeah if anyone has a solution just get back to me at firstname.lastname@example.org
I tried everything in the posts above and it still doesn't work
