Im working on a pc that has a on-board video port, and for some reason when I turn the pc on the screen is black and I get a series of long beeps, my first reaction was to swap out the memory because I know that is a big one for pc's not being able to boot. So with new ram it still has the same result, so I tried to install a pci video card because this pc doestn have a ago slot. Also I cant get into the bios to disable this on board video port. Asus Terminator P4

well thanks for the reference to this page , I should find it useful in the future but I did find out that I have Phoenix Bios and the codes look pretty vague to me, I dont understand the 4-3-3-2, 1-1-3-4, etc...
4 beeps a pause 3 beeps a pause................

well i thought that was the concept here but if its just 1 long beep a pause...1 long beep a pause.....it doesnt make sense because my problem doesnt exist with this format. How do I disable the on board video port if I cant get to the bios because of a black screen?

Check the manual for the motherboard. Some use jumpers to disable the onboard video.

Not sure what to suggest at this point. If I were you, I'd try contacting the motherboard maker and see if they have any ideas. They could possibly give you the exact sequence of key strokes to disable it in the BIOS without seeing it on the screen. It's a long shot though ...

BTW, I don't see where you've mentioned that you tried another monitor. I assume you have but I figured I'd ask anyway, have you?
