I need help choosing a video card - part 2


PCI is the older, slower format, PCIe is newer and faster, but your system MUST support PCIe or it won't work.
So easy option is to find if your system supports PCIe and then get whichever is suitable.

Nvidia graphics card won't fit in asus ncch-dl motherboard


The NCCH-DL has the following slots:

1 - AGP-Pro 8x
(you can use regular AGP cards in here as well as long as you have the little plastic thing that comes with the mobo... you may even be able to without it)

2 - PCI-X

This is NOT PCI-E.

You CAN use regular PCI cards in a PCI-X slot IF the company that manufactured the card left the space between the little metal contacts... unfortunately, many PCI cards are made with the space filled in with useless plastic... I've heard you can cut the little space yourself and it'll work fine... I don't know why it wouldn't but be careful, and of course do at your own risk.

I currently use a regular PCI network card in this slot because the onboard LAN port only has Win64 bit drivers on the web site and it works just fine.

A PCI-E card will NOT work in this slot.

Generally speaking the PCI-X cards you are going to find are riser cards, network cards, firewire cards, and controler cards.

2 - Regular PCI Slots.

I think you know what PCI is.

Okay. It seems that although you have a video problem it's not completely dead so you can at least see something. The good news is it takes all of about 5 minutes to install a new video card. When you open your case, you'll see some long slots that are empty. There are a couple of white ones. Those are known as PCI slots. Depending on the age of your PC, you'll have either an AGP (probably not) or a PCI Express slot. You'll need to know which one you'll be using so you buy the correct one. If you look up the specs on your PC at the manufacturers website, it'll tell you. If you're unsure, tell me what it is and I'll let you know.
As for installation, put in the cd that comes with the card first and install the drivers. It's fairly automatic. Next turn off the PC and put the card in the slot. Plug your monitor cable into the new card and power it back on. Good to go!

No vedio


If a wire touched the side of the video card and there was a spark then that wire shorted something out. The video card is likely bad now and it is also possible that there was damage to the motherboard. If the motherboard still work then a working PCI video card or AGP video card would work. If there is damage to the motherboard from the short then it is possible that the PCI slots as well as the AGP slot will not work but there is no way to tell if that is the case without testing the electronics on the motherboard or plugging in a working video card to see if it works.

Motherboards' video card slot was damaged,


If you don't use your pc for gameing, assumeing the motherboard still works!

you could buy a PCI video card

Here is a example card you could buy
http://cgi.ebay.com/NEW-ATI-Radeon-64MB-DDR-Dual-Head-VGA-PCI-Video-Card_W0QQitemZ230237362135QQihZ013QQcategoryZ3762QQssPageNameZWDVWQQrdZ1QQcmdZViewItem


Before you buy, make sure the motherboard works! becouse if the motherboard is too damaged it wont work at all and you would waste your money on a pci card.

Pci slot seems dead


so windows XP doesnt detect your new hardware. Try these suggestions:

1. Re install by reconnecting it to their respective slots.
2. Check, if the cards connected, supports PLUG and PLAY which means it can be detected automatically if connected to the slots.
3. If it is not plug and play, you have to configure it manually, try to install its software cd.

To see if it is already detected, go to the my computer and check the hardware devices connected menu (I hope you can browse to go to that menu) next, if it is already detected
all items listed there must have no question mark on it and X mark.

If you have this mark, it means that the driver is not installed yet or you have to reconfigure it.

Still Doesn't Work


You needed to configure bios (F2) when you first installed the processor,

 

now the Bios hangs before anything can happen,  You need to remove the Bios Battery (looks like a coin on the mobo) for about 30 secs (with the power disconnected)  then re-insert the battery and power on.

 

you should get the same power on message as you did the 1st time (maybe with a missings settings error too but this is expected)

 

Enuro12 is right about legacy USB in that your keyboard should work in BIOS (setup)
