Question about Computers & Internet
Cant install powercolor 9600 pro on EliteGroup 845GV-M3 mobo... Fan will run in agp express slot but hardware not found on boot up, or driver install (win XP). if I set bios to detect card then no signal at all (from onboard or 9600 pro) Nvidia mx4000 128 Mb card works fine, but only 128MB.
Appreciate the direct "Ask Me".
Background info, a Powercooler 9600 PRO EZ was most probably manufactured by C.P.Technology in Taiwan. I am sorry to say that quality wise, this company is rather low and to my understanding, a lot of their products has to be returned/replaced even new. On the other hand, the old Nvidia MX4000 might have been manufactured by Palit, also in Taiwan but has a better quality control as of the time of production. The MX4000 though only uses 128Mb of memory but runs them at 275/400 (DDR) MHz clock speed compared to the 9600 PRO 200 (400) MHz. The slow memory onto the PowerColor RADEON 9600 PRO EZ 256MB had a really bad effect on its performance.
To your concern, the ECS 845GV-M3 (V1.0) uses AGP Express but should not cause a problem to either the 256 or 128. since it is working with the 128, then it would be safe to say that the 256 is defective. if the 256 will test OK in another motherboard, then it would be a compatibility issue, try setting the CMOS/BIOS to default and see if it will work.
Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.
Good luck and kind regards. Thank you for using FixYa.
