I just recently bought a new PC, and the mother board model is a M2A-VM Graphics Integrated Motherboard. What I want to know form you is that, I am not getting the results I want for my graphics, when I opened the old files in this new machine, the colours are not satisfactory and they all appeared to be quit faded, what I am trying to explain here is; I have also a new Viewsonic 22’ widescreen monitor with the resolution up to 1680 x 1050 dpi, running on an ATI Radeon Xpress 1250, on Wondows XP Home Edition. Can I replace this integrated ATI Radeon card for the, Asus 8600GT Silent 512 Mb DDR3 PCI-Express and if it is compatible with the original setup, can you please tell me how to do it? I would be very great full for your help. Thank you very much Jairo Goncalves

Yes u can add that card, disable the onboard video in BIOS, free up the shared memory its using from your system and gain a nice performance boost.
I would look at the 8800 series, they run circles around the 8600's because they have more data pipelines and the prices are comparable with the 8600's. Even the 9600 series has some affordable alturnatives.

Your board has a PCI Express x16 slot, should be fine for the 8600GT PCIe. Really, for first timer, have someone watch who knows what they're doing. You can find guides all over the net on how to do so also, but they won't show exactly what you'll be looking at. Short version--remove side of chassis that gives access to the m/b, remove back bracket cover for the PCIe x16 slot, insert new video card in the x16 slot, check for a plastic clamp on the back of the slot, secure the card in the slot, put chassis side back on. Boot system, install drivers from the CD.

The integrated video on the M2A-VM has the Xpress 1250 chipset. Big upgrade to the still decent 8600GT.

Your board has a PCI-express slot as well as the integrated graphics, so you should be able to just plug the Asus card in and it should autmatically replace the onboard graphics; You'll need to install the software for the new card when Windows starts up. To ensure a trouble-free installation it might be advisable to uninstall the Radeon graphics from Device Manager first. Do you need help to do that?

Graphics card problem


Hi rovin,
So you bought an XFX GeForce 256MB video card. You're board has 1 free AGP 8x video slot & 3 PCI (White opened slots).
You mention there is not slot for the new card. (What type of video card did you buy)? PCI-E, AGP or PCI?
The only slot you're board does not have is a PCI-Express.
Look in you're manual on page 1-7 for the location of the AGP video card slot.
94565e6.jpg If you bought the wrong card, exchange it for an AGP 8x or PCI.
The ASUS P5PE-VM uses a integrated Intel® 865G chipset with integrated Intel® Extreme Graphics 2 Technology, which uses you're system memory to function.
If you need a manual you can download it from Asus. Click on the link to open to the P5PE-VM download site.

I hope you find this helpful.

M2a-vm mother board


Hi auriaskate,
Currently you are using the onboard PCI video adapter. This graphics adapter uses you're system memory to function.
If there is a problem with you're system memory the beeps can lead one to think there is a problem with the onboard video.
You can not remove the onboard adapter so there may be a problem with you're system memory. (I doupt you're memory is bad) but on the other hand it might not be fully installed correctely. Power off the PC & unplug the power cord from the PC.
Please remove you're system memory & firmly reseat it.
Plug the power cord back in. Start the PC & listen for any beeps except the 1 normal beep known as P.O.S.T = Power on self test. Any beeps after that there is a problem with a device connected to the board.
You're Asus M2A-VM uses an Award bios. Click on the link below to see what Award beeps mean.

Try the memory reseat & check. Let me know if this helped.
