New PC build, mobo video outputs not working, gpu outputs are fine.

I just built my little brother his first computer and I used an asus h81i-plus mother board. I've never had something like this happen to me in a computer build and i'm not sure what to do to fix it, could I be missing something simple?

  1. If you have a discrete GPU, the onboard graphics are going to be disabled. This is normal behavior.

    This is because, at a time only one GPU out of built-in GPU and discrete GPU can give output. They both can't be used at a same time. It is more than ok if you are getting out put from discrete GPU and not from built-in GPU. If you want to have output from built-in GPU, pl go into BIOS and select iGPU/built-in GPU as primary display and connect the video cable to the video port on the mobo backside. Also pl make one concept clear. built-in GPU is in CPU not in mobo. :)
  3. I cannot believe that went over my head, of course the onboard woundn't work. I've been pulling my hair out for no reason, I way over thought that.
  4. No issue. Glad to assist. Now you know so help others.
