Re: no information

Personally I use the Micro 2000 POST card. It's both PCI and ISA/EISA (just in case you want to mess with some old dogs) It's not the cheapest solution available but it is one of the best. (If you do order one from them tell them you saw them at one of the recent shows and you should be able to get the "show" price or special) Just Google pci post card to find others. As far as the schematic for Compaq MoBo's good luck...I can't recall ever seeing a sheet for just a Compaq board only systems. (I think that board was made be HP so maybe searching that way will yield results) You might get lucky here: They have Compaq system schematics, maybe you can find one that uses that MoBo and has the info you need. Good Luck, El Duderino

Hi, I have Intel DG965SS MOTHER BOARD and wanted to add a video card , how can I know what video card can I use ?

Hi yair_osman,
Install PCI Express [Graphics / Video Card]
You can install {Any Type} of PCI Express Card.
It 'must be a [16x PCIe] card!" the "lowercase" (e) = Express.
Important!: It "must fix the {Form Factor} of your Desktop!"
Meaning: "The "Dimensions" in (inches)
Go to the "Website" below.
Its for your Desktop "Assembly Guide"

This is an example of a PCI Express Card:
Galaxy 43GGS8HX3SPZ
GeForce GT 430 Video Card
Price: $69.99
!Important: "Take a 'moment to rate the help', so I can get 'credit' for the work.

Thank you!" - paul7of9

Video not working on 755Twins-hdtv motherboard.

The option to disable the onboard graphics is in the BIOS.
You need a PCI-express card. You should not be trying to fit any graphics cards into the PCI slot.
The VGA/HDTV conection should have been supplied on a seperate card.

MSI PM8M -V shaking/vibrating screen

Check the cable connection from the monitor to the computer for bent or damaged pins in the connector. Make sure it's connection is secure.
No problems found there?
try resetting your LCD or CRT monitor. Some CRT's can be degaussed, if yours can - try that.
LCD's, choose factor reset otion if available.
Still no luck?
Right click on the desktop and go to properties, then to settings, then to troubleshoot. Slide the hardware acceleration slider all the way to the left. Click OK.
If that doesnt solve your problem then you could have a bad video card or Monitor. If your video card is on your motherboard, try installing a PCI or AGP card ( if your system is AGP capable )
If you still have the shaking, you should start shopping for a monitor.

Hope this helps,

AGP card support

Hi, Unfortunately no AGP slot nor PCI-E. The Gigabyte GA-8I845GV motherboard has only 3 Expansion Slots and all of the are PCI (33MHz & PCI 2.2 compliantt). From their website, here's an image of the motherboard It has a built-in Intel® Extreme Graphics Engine (845GV chipset) for video with max of 128 mb shared memory. Should you wish to install an add-on 3rd party PCI video card, Inno3D FX5500 256ddr PCI slot tv-dvi are still available (at least in my location) for an equivalent of about 3.5K INR (80USD+). Hope this gives you an idea. Good luck and kind regards.
