I have an ASUS M2A-VM HDMI system that some time ago blew the power supply. I had a second video card (NVIDIA GeForce 8500 GT) already installed at the time. Upon replacing the power supply the onboard video was not operating. It hasn't been a problem until now.

I'm trying to install a LCD HDTV as my primary monitor and would like to use the DVI output from the ASUS. I'm not getting any signal from it. When I check with the device manager only the NVIDIA is listed. There is a "ASUS Other Devices" named "Enhanced Display Driver Helper Service" with no drivers installed listed.

I'm not sure now if when the power supply blew (yes, the machine was running at the time) that the onboard video was toasted or wether I've got a software problem.

Any ideas?

ok....it does look like it was turned off in the bios. now it shows up unidentified in the device driver and when I went to the ASUS website there are five different drivers listed. Mine should be the M2A-VM HDMI. But when I downloaded the driver, the install fails right after startup.

yep....that worked great....sort of. Now I've lost my software for the add on video. The picture that I'm getting from the secondary monitor (which until yesterday was my primary) seems just a quite hazy. I tried to adjust the colors with the ATI software and it's not an available option. I'm sure I just have to find that. I've degaussed the monitor but it's just not crisp. New problems....but hey....both drivers are working!!!!

If both show colors that way, perhaps the monitor has had it.
