Hi all

I have a really strange issue, wondering if anyone has been it before?

https://ibb.co/jvqMhjr

I acquired a Xeon based system, it doesnt have a hard drive. And I have replaced the RAM, CMOS battery, VGA cable and monitor and I still get the above screen strangeness.

I think it might be mobo, vga port or PSU, they are my guesses. Has anyone had the same issue before?

Cheers

Hi Grobe

The first monitor is a HP ProDisplay P221, tried another monitor both have the issue. But both monitors work with another computer.

I tried a new power supply and for 3 mins it looked fine and then went all distorted again. Both power supplies dont have this issue when used on another computer.

Im at a loss, I can now only assume its the mobo?

Many thanks

Sometimes I experience it, but it's not as bad as yours. the problem is my vga cable, so I just have to reseat the cable and the screen will restore. and I also have xeon based systems. Have you try another port in your graphic card ?

Hi Grobe

Yeah I'm thinking the mb is knackered!

Hi Gerald6049

Thanks for your response, yeah tried another cable and reseated it a couple of times. Sadly I dont have a discreet GPU I can try, I've been using the ports on the mobo.

Might be time for the mobo to be binned.

Thanks Both

by the way, what is your mobo ? if they had integrated graphic, you can find the cheap used processor, then boot on it to make sure the motherboard is the issue.

Hi Gerald6049

Its a HP ML110 G5 DDR2 Motherboard Socket 775 Motherboard 445072-001 457883-001 ProLiant

However I do have a Power Edge SC4400 so good plan think I will try the Xeon in that, if it works fine then its the mobo.

Cheers
