K7AMA motherboard and NVIDIA 6200 video card boot problem

I have a ECS K7AMA motherboard which runs good with ATI 7200 video card (4x AGP) under Windows XP.

However, when I upgrade the video card to NVIDIA 6200, sometimes the computer does not boot up. When it does boot up, it takes more than 2 min.to boot. Additionally, when it boots up with normal windows screen, directX 3D test shows no image on the monitor. I have tried all versions of the NVIDIA video card driver from 77.77 to 175.16. All give the similar results.

The NVIDIA 6200 video card is 8x AGP card and compatible with AGP 2.0 specification according to the manufacturer. The K7AMA motherboard has a universal 4x AGP slot.

Does this mean that the K7AMA motherboard does not support 6200 video card? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Can i install a graphics card in ASUSTeK Computer INC. Goldfish2 (CPU 1) ?


Hi Nishchal,

I have looked here for the specifications on your motherboard:
http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/document?docname=c00300057&lc=en&cc=us&dlc=&product=496921

It seems that motherboard only has PCI slots meaning you are very limited in what you can buy - it will not be possible to purchase a graphics card capable of playing any newer games for this motherboard.

Just to be sure, please check if your motherboard has an AGP (usually brown) expansion port above the three white PCI expansion ports on the motherboard at the bottom left. This connector should be as long, if not longer than the PCI ports - if it is very small, it is not AGP (its an AMR port). If your machine does have an AGP port, you can get graphics cards that will play older games or enable aero in vista/windows 7. Ebay is a good place to look for these, Nvidia 6200 / Ati 9600 pro cards are good mid choices, where as I think the fastest AGP card ever made was an nvidia 7600GT.

Hope that helps!

Can you suggest an agp 8x video card compatible with a7v880 mobo? thanks! my nvidia fx5200 got busted...


Hello.

Since you have a ASUS A7V880 Motherboard, this means you have a VIA chipset, which does not like ATi Video Cards.

You can only go with Nvidia AGP Video Cards.

Current "Available" Models are

Nvidia GeForce FX 5200 , 5500
Nvidia GeForce 6200, 6600 GS
Nvidia GeForce 7300 GS, 7600GS


The Best Graphic Card available from the Nvidia GeForce series is the 7600GS

If you just want another card to replace your old video card, please visit:

Hope that Helps.

You could try this link, but with all Beta software nothing is guaranteed until the approved verisons are released.

Not put down your video card though x1650 is not a "screamer" in todays standards, I'm running a 3870OC myself because it was cheaper than to buy the latest and greatest. I believe you are limited by your motherboard only having AGP? Take a look at this link:

http://www.ewiz.com/detail.php?p=AT-3850AGP&c=pw

You would be able to retain the already installed drivers. It all depends on your budget. On another note try lowering your colors and changing the monitors frequency. I hope this helps.

Video card


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.

I hope this answers your question,

Your motherboard only supports AGP. You can use any AGP graphics card that supports up to 4X AGP. nVidia and ATI make great cards as well as other manufacturers that mak boards using nVidia and ATI chipsets. I would recomend a card with at least 512MB of memory onboard. I hope this helps.

GRAPHICS CARD


That motherboard and videa card connect using the AGP standard so you are quite limited to what video cards you can get without upgrading the entire system. Also, since your system is that old getting a modern graphics card will not help much as the processor (CPU) will limit it greatly.

nVidia has not released an AGP card in a few generations but they did have some back with the 7600 AGP. ATI released an AGP version of it's last generation of cards with the HD3850.

I personally think you are wasting your money and should consider upgrading your entire system if you are planning an playing any games. I would suggest getting the cheapest AGP video card you can find say a GeForce 6200 or Radeon X1550. Don't spend more than $50 or $60.

Remember that it must be AGP to fit on your motherboard. Another thing to consider is that any AGP video card you buy for you current system will not work in any new computer.

This motherboard has an 8x AGP slot. So any 8X AGP graphic cards will suit this mobo. As your local reseller for any 8x AGP based graphic cards from ATI or Nvidia.
