View Full Version : White screen and boot explosion sound when no GPU installed

10-11-2013, 02:57 AM
I have a G51VX-RX05with an NVIDIA GTX 260M.

Whenever I turn the computer on without the GPU inserted, the laptop boots, but only displays a white screen. In addition to the white screen, I can hear the sound effect of the explosion that normally would accompany ASUS ROG logo. I can also adjust the brightness of the screen using the function keys, so I believe the keyboard is interacting with the motherboard properly.

When I turn the laptop on with the GPU inserted, the computer doesn't boot, but the LED indicators light up for a second and shut off afterwards.

Since I can hear the BIOS sound when booting without the GPU, I assume the problem can be attributed to the video card and not the motherboard.

Does anyone have any experience with this sort of behavior? As in the computer failing to boot when the GPU is installed but booting with a white screen when it is not.
