I replaced my motherboard with a A31G motherboard. The old motherboard has a video card (radeon 9550SE). Should I or can I install the video card on the A31G ? If so how ??


Looking at the specs for the 2 boards, its a no im afraid.
Your old board has an AGP graphics slot, your replacement has a PCI express and a AGP Pro slot. Its says this about the AGP Pro slot
AGP Pro
It is an official extension for cards that required more electrical power. It is a longer slot with additional pins for that purpose. AGP Pro cards were usually workstation-class cards used to accelerate professional computer-aided design applications employed in the fields of architecture, machining, engineering, simulations, and similar fields.

You wont be able to use the old card then. A new basic PCI express card is very cheap ( £20 or so), check the likes of this out http://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/search/ref=sr_nr_p_36_0?bbn=14122251&qid=1278887259&rh=n%3A560798%2Cn%3A%21560800%2Cn%3A262739011%2Cn%3A296802011%2Cn%3A10392541%2Cp_36%3A138893031%2Cn%3A14122251%2Cn%3A14122281&rnid=389035011&low-price=15&high-price=25&x=13&y=5

Hi noxiney, you're MSI motherboard does have 1 opened AGP 8x4x slot. You can install & run the ATI Radeon X1650 PRO AGP. You can not run PCI-Express because there are no PCI-E slots on the board. There are PCI (White in color) on the board but the AGP slot is much faster than the PCI (White in color slots). The manual states the AGP card can only support 1.5volt video cards & not 3.3volt AGP cards. (Keep this in mind when looking for an AGP card).
Below is a link to a bunch of AGP 8x4x video cards. One or two include DDR2 memory. Carefull where you buy. Check the warranty. (Longer is better). The first one on the list would be compatible. Its not DDR2 but it does have 512MB of memory.
http://www.google.com/products?hl=en&q=AGP+ATI+Radeon+X1650+PRO&um=1&ie=UTF-8&sa=X&oi=product_result_group&resnum=1&ct=title

This card is 1.5v compatable.
http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/SearchTools/item-details.asp?EdpNo=3101648&CatId=318
& this is compatable.
http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/SearchTools/item-details.asp?EdpNo=1642902&CatId=318
Just remember, if the card can run both 8x & 4x it should support the 1.5volt needed to function on the MB.

Enjoy!

Before removing your current card swap video outputs on the PC. If currently connected to the VGA output switch to the HDMI connector AT the video card. Use the HDMI to VGA adapter that came with the video card. Check & see if the display loads Pc starts. Taking the information directly from your motherboard manual pg. 25, your AGP video can only run at, AGP supporting 1.5 V 4X AGP cards. The 9600pro runs at 8x & it is not backwards compatible. (able to run at either 8x or 4x). You could run the Sappire ATI Radeon 256MB 9550 DDR AGP 4x/8x 1.5volt card.
Here is one site: http://www.colordrives.com/sapphire-ati-radeon-9550-256mb-ddr-agp-4x-8x-video-card---retail-box.html
When you do get the video card be sure to set your bios AGP to the correct size as listed in your manual pg. 109 subsection 4.4.7
I hope this helped.

AGP 8x not supported


Just a thought, but have you tried going into the bios setup and setting bios to system defaults or safe setting, saving and rebooting?
