Problem with Pundit-R and PCI graphics card

I have problems with Pundit-R and Powercolor HD2400 Radeon 256 PCI card. The system runs on Vista and there are some conflicts between resources in Device Manager.

I cannot find the possibility to disable IGP manually, as in the BIOS I can find only setting for primary boot. After several experiments with the settings and various ATI drivers version I can see the PCI card in the DM, but with the yellow triangle sign (exclamation) - the error code is 43. The strange is that the card operates sometimes but only as VgaSave i.e. it gives some output signal. At the same time there is no problem with HD Audio integrated with the HD2004 card - seemless P'n'P instalation process during Vista startup.

What should I do to run the card? Change OS? Downgrade the MoBo BIOS (to which version)? Or maybe there are some switches/jumpers on the MB?

Does anyone have the similar problem with upgrading Pundit-R with discrete graphics card?

I had a similar problem when installing a GeForce 5200 256mb PCI card in my Asus Pundit-S running winxp which I overcame when I got the sequencing of installation right.

First, Physically install the card in one of the available PCI slots. Using the onboard graphics to your monitor, boot the system. Windows will detect your new card and prompt you to install. Cancel Windows installation and use the supplied Radeon install disc for driver and program installation. After that, Reboot and enter your system's BIOS. On my system, repeatedly hitting the delete key gets me there.

Now this is where it may differ. In my BIOS, I needed to select the ADVANCED Menu followed by PCI CONFIGURATION. If your BIOS does not have the ADVANCED menu, you may have to upgrade it by downloading from the Asus Global Site. That is a whole other challenge but it is possible...hehe

The two options that need to be changed in the PCI Config Menu are:
Primary VGA BIOS -> PCI VGA Card, and
Onboard VGA -> Disabled.

Save changes and exit BIOS however, on exiting, you will need to unplug the VGA/DVI cable from your onboard port and connect it to your PCI card port. My card will not display the content unless it is plugged in from initial boot so you might have to restart your computer if you are not quick enough to catch that boot cycle.

Selecting these options should avoid any onboard conflict between devices as the Pundit-R has an onboard Radeon 9100 chip. I suspect the two same-make chips is where the conflict problem lies plus you don't need to be running the onboard graphics if you have a dedicated PCI card.

I hope this helps.

Good Luck.

This mainboard is not detecting my graphics card. Im using a ASUS EAH5770 CUcore/G/2DI/1GD5 in the PCI slot.

The card should be plugged into the black slot, not the red one (The one closest to the processor socket). If you are getting a picture on your monitor, then your mainboard is detecting the graphics card.

Gaming graphic card for u8668-d

This is an old motherboard, it supports PCI or AGP interface. Do NOT get a PCI-E graphics card for it. Best graphics card for this would be Radeon HD 4650 AGP 8x. However, I would save the money, those are and near 100$. That mobo will only support pentium 4 series CPU, very outdated and slow. I would consider upgrading to a whole new system.

Can MSI K9MM-V Motherboard Support the XFX RADEON 6790 Graphics Card ?

No! you need an AGP x8 card. Your motherboard doesn't support PCI-E. If you want to run a card as fast and new as this you will need to upgrade your motherboard. There are Socket AM2 motherboards available so that the only thig you will need to replace is the motherboard, but you will need to be quick as those with DDR2 memory sockets are becoming rare.(ie expensive)
