Question about EliteGroup NFORCE4-A939 (NFORCE4A93910) Motherboard

1 Answer

Computer Freezing I am not sure if this is a motherboard problem or possibly a graphics card problem or what, I am quite the noob when it comes to this stuff. I play a few online games WoW and Warhammer. I would occasionally have problems with lock ups on WoW (have been playing for over 3 years) but now it locks up almost instantly when I begin playing. Also I have not been able to play Warhammer for more than 3 min at a time without lock up. Tried all the fixes suggested by the support for both games except, one suggested I upgrade my video card. They feel that it may not be advanced enough for all the graphics in the game. I guess my real question is how do I figure out what new cards my motherboard will accept? Any other advice would be greatly appreciated also.

    Thanks *****, I will try the memory stick first if no success I will try a new graphics card. I forgot to include the current card/type in my last post: PCI-Express GeForce 6600 512MB DVI/TVOut. If I try to up grade my graphics card as long as it is a pci card with additional memory I don't have to worry about too much else? Thanks for the prompt responce and I will let you know how it goes.

I have built several gaming computers and if I had your problem, the first thing I would try is to add a stick of memory.Then I would get me a graphics card with some memory built on the board (256 meg). You motherboard should run a pci graphics card with no problem.

What are some mid to high end compatible GPUs for this motherboard


instead of assuming a comparability issue, have you considered a power supply issue?

have you disabled the onboard video?

have you exchanged the card? have you tried a different brand

according to your boards tech support:

  • Some PCI Express graphics cards require more power.
  • Remove and reinstall the new card to make sure it is fully seated in the slot.
  • Try the card in a different slot, if possible.
  • Make sure other devices and cables inside the chassis were not disturbed or loosened when you installed the new card.

additionally, you need to make sure that you have more than 2 gigabytes of system ram; although, wwith an i7, i would expect yo have that already covered.

I have a home PC that was built by a computer shop a few years back, I moved and when I tried to start the computer, the monitor will not come on. says monitor going to sleep.


Make sure that all expansion cards, especially the graphics card is seated fully in its slot on the motherboard. If it is using onboard graphics (usually VGA on the motherboard) then the graphics may have gone bad.

I have a ASRock CONROE1333-DVI/H R2 motherboard and i wanted to know if i could use a graphics card that requires a pci express 2.0 slot


Absolutely!

The AsRock Conroe1333-DVI/H R2 mobo uses PCI-Express 1.1 technology. It's in the Intel 945G motherboard chipset.

http://www.asrock.com/mb/overview.asp?Model=CONROE1333-DVI/H

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_intel_chipsets#Pentium_4.2FPentium_D.2FPentium_EE_chipsets

Scroll down to bottom of chart. 945G made in 2005.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/PCI_Express

Scroll down to History and revisions.
PCI Express 2.0 -> 15 January 2007

A graphics card based on the PCI Express 2.0 technology, will work on a motherboard based on the PCI express 1.1 technology.

Why?

Because PCI Express 2.0 technology is Backward Compatible, with PCI Express 1.1 technology.

You just won't get the full capability of the PCI Express 2.0 graphics card.
Will you notice? NO

PCI Express 1.0a, and PCI Express 1.1, operate with a per-lane data rate of 250MegaBytes per Second. (250MB/s)
Transfer rate of 2.5Gigabits per Second. (2.5Gb/s)

PCI Express 2.0 operates with a 500MB/s per-lane data rate.
Transfer rate of 5.0Gb/s.

Make SURE you have Windows running, then install the software for the graphic card -> F-I-R-S-T, then physically install the graphics card.
(Computer unplugged from power, Anti-Static Precautions -> FOLLOWED)

The computer will not use the graphics cards software, UNTIL the graphics card is installed.
It will keep on using the integrated graphics on the motherboard, until the graphics card is installed.

Means get the motherboard going first, use it's integrated graphics.
Install software for graphics card, and then Physically install the graphics card.
(Don't forget to attach the monitor cable to the graphics card, lol!)

For additional questions please post in a Comment.

My asus p5vd2-mx se graphics intergrated motherboard has started playing up since i installed windows 7 my sound has gone and keeps freezing etc


There have been quite a few issues with Windows 7 compatabilty with software from prior versions. You have VIA P4M890 and VT8327 chipsets, Via Unichrome Pro graphics and Realtek ALC660 sound. Asus does not show support for Windows 7 and your board byt, in some instances, Vista will work. Tjis is Asus's link:
http://www.asus.com/Motherboards/Intel_Socket_775/P5VD2MX_SE/#download
You can try your sound here:
http://www.realtek.com.tw/downloads/
The Unichrome Pro doesn't show anY support passed Win XP. You do have a PCIe x 16 slot so, if you can't live without Windows 7, a graphics card with windows 7 support is an option. With the Radeon HD cards, you can get sound and audio.

Keeps telling me no signal


The motherboard is not telling you there is no signal, the monitor is..
In this order:

  1. Test the connection from graphics card to monitor, try a different monitor to eliminate this from the issues.
  2. If other monitor works, the old one is causing the problems
  3. If new monitor does not work:
  • Check the graphics card is seated properly, if possible, test with another graphics card, if this works, the issue is with the graphics card
  • If this does not work, check the fan on the cpu, is it spinning? If not, make sure the fan is connected to the motherboard
  • If the fan is spinning, remove all the ram, reboot, you should get a series of beeps, make note of these and repost them (computer will not boot)
  • If you get NO beeps with ram removed, the CPU or motherboard are possibly dead, if possible, replace CPU with known working one and retest with and without ram in, make sure you have thermal grease on the CPU>heatsink. Replace the Ram (or one module)
  • If you get a single beep and the motherboard powers the monitor, the CPU was your issue
  • If you get no beeps, confirmed death of motherboard.
Possible other solutions: Remove CMOS battery, leave for 1 minute and then replace, see if it boots
Check the power switch from the computer front panel is not sticking

Using my ASUS K8S-MX Motherboard. . . . well, To put a long story short . . . My old Hard drive went out i replaced it with a new one while doing so my mother board stopped or was unable to read my Nvidia...


Look at the capacitors are they bloated, exploded, leaking? If so that could be your problem, and need to be replaced. If its anything else that burned out like some diode or resister good luck finding it. But first check on the caps, and replace any that are bad, if nothing else is evident, then just replace the card they are cheap.

No sound card found!


Hi,
check your bios to see if your sound card is not turned off. If it is on, and no OS can see it / also try some Linux live cd´s like kubuntu / it may be damaged. That would also explain freezing. About the freezing, make sure, the cpu cooler sits correctly, better yet, reattach it with new cooling paste.

Graphic Card Problem


there could be many things besides the graphics card. To start however, make sure your laptop recognizes your card and its drivers installed. Make sure your card is compatible with your motherboard. what is the model of your graphics card?

Pci express slot


Hi dineshcs.
When adding a new graphics card (Your's being a PCI-Express), you must change a bios setting under the title " Advanced " section. Open you're M2N-MX manual & turn to page 2-21. You need to change the boot order for you're graphics to list,
[PEG/PCI]. Change Initiate Graphic Mode Select to [Disable].
These changes stop the onboard graphics card from loading & allow the PCI-Express card to load. The issue of possible motherboard overheating can be caused by many things. Here is a list of things to check.
1). Check the CPU heat-sink fan. Make sure the fan blades are
free from dust build up. Check fan speed in bios (Its RPM will be listed). It should be running a min of 2300 RPM.
2). Also in the bios is Hardware monitor. By booting into the bios go to this & watch the temp of CPU & motherboard. If either is getting too hot suggest you add a side case 3" fan to the system to help lower the CPU & motherboard temp.

Good Luck!
