H55M-E33 i3 no graphics in Win7
« on: 11-March-10, 23:33:47 »

I have a H55M-E33 with an i3 530 running windows 7.  After the windows 7 load screen the lcd (via DVA) will go black, graphics work in safe mode or with the default vga driver.  It seems when the driver loads the graphics stop working.  I have tried loading the latest drivers from MSI and intel, for both the chipset and graphics.  

I upgraded the BIOS to v 1.5.  4GB of Memory passed memtest without errors.  

I am trying to figure out if it's a driver issue still, a bad gpu or something wrong on the motherboard.

Was this issue present before the flash to the newer bios or after? Did you use the forum USB Flash Tool or other method? Did you clear CMOS after the flash in a power off state & the power cord removed? Reset all your bios settings correctly? :-))

 I assume you are using graphics imbedded in the CPU?

It was an issue in both vs 1.3 and 1.5 of the BIOS, I upgraded using the BIOS utility on MSI's motherboard (in DOS).  I am using the i3 GPU.

To rule out RAM problems, have you tried with just one stick? Have you tested each stick individually? Spread Spectrum should be disabled in bios Cell Menu. What is the RAM voltage set at, speed, timings & CR?

 Are you using W7 32 bit or 64 bit? Are you sure you're using correct drivers for your version of Windows? Can you possibly test with XP?

I have tried it with 1 stick of RAM and had the same issue.  Spread spectrum is disabled, voltage is 1.65 (spec), clock is 1066 @ 9-9-9 (spec) but mb reads 7-7-7 as default.  Windows 7 64bit.

I think isolated the issue to the lcd (samsung 205bw).  I noticed the first time after booting it in safe mode i could boot it at 640x480 then once in windows resize to 1680x1050.  The next reboot would go black again.  I power cycled the lcd while the screen was black and when it came back on the login screen was there was the login screen, I was able to duplicate it over a number of reboots.

Does sound like the Monitor.  Contact Samsung and see what they say.
