This motherboard has PCI expansion slot then any PCI video card will work with this motherboard. If it had an AGP expansion slot then you may be able to install a better video card. This motherboard has a built-in Nvidia GeForce video card which most likely out performs any PCI video card.
Hello there, I will be your technician today. My name is Norman-Wynne Damstra.
Welcome to Fixya!
On the rear of the mainboard, called the Input/Output or I/O you will find a blue VGA port, this is your on-board graphics adaptor/graphics card. Therefore you may use this port to connect your monitor to.
Alternatively if you are looking for a graphics card to fit your computer mainboard, you will need to install one that uses the PCI slot. That is the White slot. You may install the graphics card in any of the three available PCI slots.
You could contact your computer store and ask them if they have a PCI graphics card, or search E-bay or the like for a PCI graphics card. Brands by Nvidia or AMD/ATI radeon will work. A Nvidia Geforce 5200 or 5500 may do the trick, usually 128mb versions.
Yes, the Nvidia geforce 9500gt graphic card is compatible with most Intel motherboard . And for installation, you just place your graphic card in the expansion slot of PCI Express x16 and install the latest driver from the nvidia site.
Yes, your Asus motherboard will support the Nvidia GeForce 8600 PCI-Express graphics card. However one thing you should consider. The 8600 card is SLI compatible but the motherboard only has one PCI-E x16 slot. You will also need to make some changes in your bios. In order to help you configure your system for a PCI-E graphics follow these steps. 1. Uninstall your current display driver software through windows control panel. Windows may ask you to restart your system, do not restart. Shut windows down which will shut off the system. 2. Unplug the power cable from the system & open your case. 3. Install your 8600 card. (Double check it is installed correctly & if needed has the extra power cord connected to the card. 4. Re-connect the power cord. 5. During boot up enter the bios by pressing the Delete key every couple seconds. 6. Once in the bios click the Advanced tab, see top of page 2-19 in your manual. 7. Than open Onboard Device Configuration Open North Bridge Configuration, see page 2-22 Change Primary Graphics Adapter to [PCI-E] Change Internal VGA to [Disable] Change Share Memory Size to [Disable] 8. Save Bios changes & exit. Your system will auto restart. Once windows has finished loading install the 8600 driver software & directX 10.0. You can also go to nVidia & download the latest software driver @ http://www.nvidia.com/Download/index.aspx?lang=en-us
The MSI KT4V motherboard is an AGP board supporting 4x/8x AGP. You cannot use a newer PCI-Express Video Card, however an Nvidia GeForce FX 5500 either PCI or AGP will run just fine in it. The NVidia FX 5500 doesn't come in PCI-E. Additionally The ATI Radeon 9550 doesn't come PCI-E so you should be safe with AGP versions of either. I should note however, that you'll get better performance out of the ATI Radeon 9550 as opposed to the NVidia FX 5500.
Hello, I have had similar problems with that same motherboard in the past and have found that resetting the cmos (see users manual) or just taking the battery of the motherboard for a few minutes can solve this. CAUTION please remove the power lead on your tower before touching any components inside, and earth yourself first by touching metal.. as static discharge kills pc components..
Hope this helps.....
Hi, since you mentioned you installed an MSI card & it worked well. I can assume you changed the bios & to boot to the AGP rather than the Integrated 3D video. This is good. Notice the message you got from Nvivia. It could not locate any compatible drivers. This can indacates 1 of 4 reasons.
1. The 5200 was not completely incerted into the AGP slot.
2. The AGP slot is dirty & needs cleaned.
3. Nvidia software was installed but previouse graphics software was not removed (un-installed) before the installation of the nvidia software.
4.The card is bad.
Suggest you download the latest driver software from Nvidia.
