your Athlon doesn't have a Graphics chip in it, using motherboard plug for monitor will not show anything since there is no processor for the Video output.

do you have a video card?

Which videocard? Maybe it's not supported. Do you know about Legacy bios and UEFI? I tried looking, but there really isn't much info on this board s it's some low end board.

Old hardware sometimes doesn't support certain and most new GPU because they run on different type of bios (modern).

What is the problem that your friend is having with it? No display as you are having?



Sorry I should have included this right away. You should go to this link and follow the guide for no display problem. You'll likely figure it out on your own with this link. Let me know what you find
