The problem is not the board, it is the implementation and the limit of the PCI-e lanes in the CPU.
Solution, Do not use slot 4.
For add in cards use old PCI-X cards at 133MHz.
They are cheap used, 64 bit, and are 8 times faster than PCI.

SOURCE: PCI Express slot, eight beeps

Yeah, but it's not the slot; it's the northbridge chipset or a PCI bridge driving it that's perhaps overheated or set funny.  If you use 2 CPUs they can fall out of step several ways, or your clock circuits can age badly by themselves!  Got fresh CMOS batteries in there?  It could be that PCIe was merely asked to run at a frequency it won't run.  You should carefully make sure the board is nice and clean, reflash or at least clear settings on the BIOS, confirm the PCI videocard boots, make sure all the chips are cooled well, and again see if you can get a PCIe card to work without complaint.

No. There is no software to change pci-e speeds. You would need a board already set up for pci-e2 to get the top speeds. Most pci-e2 graphics cards are backwards compatible but they will run at the slower speed. Hope this helps.

Looking in the net I found someone running an E8500 on this board so I guess an E8400 will work fine.

Both PCI Express expansion slots are gone?

There are still the white PCI expansion slots. Not ANYWHERE as good, but any of them can be used for a PCI graphics card.

Use of PCI-e x16 slot for non-video card


...........................................!O_O!...........................................................

WHY would you want to do that?

There is a PCI-Express x1 slot on the motherboard.
Black in color, and in-between the black PCI-Express x16 slot, and a white PCI slot.

Use the PCI-E x1 RAID adapter card in the PCI-E x1 slot, and a PCI-Express graphics card in the PCI-E x16 slot. Sheesh!

A PCI-Express slot is not an evolved PCI slot.
Completely different technologies.

PCI uses a shared Parallel bus architecture, while PCI-Express is based on Serial point-to-point.

So your idea of how to 'fix' your problem, is to use a PCI-E x1 card in a PCI-Express x16 slot, and a PCI graphics card in a PCI slot?

Completely backwards.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Motherboard_diagram.svg

PCI-Express x16 slot uses the same lanes from the Northbridge, as the OnBoard video?

UTTER NONSENSE!

The Northbridge chip handles the Faster capabilities of a computer.
Handles the Processor, Ram Memory, and HIGH-SPEED Graphics.

HIGH-SPEED graphics is the Accelerated Graphics Port (AGP) technology, and the PCI-Express technology.

The Southbridge chip handles the Slower capabilities of a computer.

The PCI bus is one of those slower capabilities handled by the Southbridge chip.

The PCI bus is also a shared bus. This slows data down.
The AGP bus, and PCI-Express bus are Not shared. They also have a direct link to the Northbridge chip.

The PCI Bus has to go through the Southbridge chip, which has to go through the Internal Bus, THEN to the Northbridge chip.

OnBoard video, or Integrated Graphics, uses the PCI bus.
When you inserted the PCI-E x1 RAID card in the PCI-Express x16 slot, and a PCI graphics card in the PCI slot, BIOS just assigned another IRQ for the PCI-Express x16 slot.
(Interrupt Request)

No fancy technology going on there.

Backwards technology going on with a PCI-Express x1 card in a PCI-Express x16 slot, though.

I do not concur, and do not think that is a good solution, Kevin.

Is it possible to dual video card in ECS 945gct-m (v1.0)?


http://www.ecs.com.tw/ECSWebSite/Product/Product_Detail.aspx?DetailID=727&CategoryID=1&MenuID=16&LanID=0

Let's read together,

" 945GCT-M v1.0 motherboard features the 945GC and ICH7 chipsets, supporting Intel Core 2 Duo/ Pentium D processor up to 1066 MHZ FSB and GMA950 embedded.

-> With two PCI-E graphic cards, this board can support Scalable D.G.E., which produces supercharged 3D performance, and enables two bridged PCI-E based graphic cards to work jointly.

-> Moreover, with enabled -> onboard VGA and -> PCI Express add-on card, this board can perform Surround Display which provides a panoramic view, along with an unique real-time experience of surround game display."

Will support two PCI-Express x16 graphics cards.
What isn't stated in that paragraph, is one graphics card will be supported at 16x, with the other being supported at 4x.

The Orange PCI-Express x16 slot supports a graphics card at the 16x bandwidth. (Hmmm, looks Red to me)

The Blue PCI-Express x16 slot supports a graphics card at the 4x bandwidth.

Was just bringing up the point, that the mobo will support OnBoard, or Integrated graphics, AND also one of those PCI-Express x16 slots.

"Surround Display"

Means BIOS will allocate an Interrupt Request for the OnBoard (Integrated) graphics, and also allocate an IRQ for the PCI-Express x16 graphics card, for using BOTH at the SAME TIME.

Never have seen this before. Must lead a sheltered life! Lol!
No big deal, however. Two graphics cards are much better.

IF, your Power Supply does NOT have two 6-pin PCI Express power cables, AND you use an adapter power cable, that uses two 4-pin Peripheral power cables, MAKE SURE you use TWO -> 4-pin Peripheral power cables! <-

If not you will burn up the power cable's connector.
You will burn up the power cable connector on the graphics card.
You will burn the PCI Express x16 slot the graphics card is sitting in.

May not happen right away, but I Assure you it Will happen!

Need two for every graphics card.

Do I know if they will both physically fit? No.
You have the motherboard, and the two graphics cards, though.

What type of video card can I use on this motherboard? D945GZIS AGP? PCI? PCI EXPRESS?


Your MoBo has (1) of each PCI Express x1 & and PCI Express x16 slots, and (2) standard PCI slots. There are NO AGP bus slots on this board. You'd want to use buy a PCI Express x16 video card instead of a PCI video card due to the better performance offered by the PCI Express cards.

Wha t is a pci


Conventional PCI (part of the PCI Local Bus standard and often shortened to PCI) is a computer bus for attaching hardware devices in a computer. These devices can take either the form of an integrated circuit fitted onto the motherboard itself, called a planar device in the PCI specification, or an expansion card that fits into a slot. The name PCI is an initialism formed from Peripheral Component Interconnect. The PCI Local Bus is common in modern PCs, where it has displaced ISA and VESA Local Bus as the standard expansion bus, and it also appears in many other computer types. Despite the availability of faster interfaces such as PCI-X and PCI Express, conventional PCI remains a very common interface.

The PCI specification covers the physical size of the bus (including wire spacing), electrical characteristics, bus timing, and protocols. The specification can be purchased from the PCI Special Interest Group (PCI-SIG).

Typical PCI cards used in PCs include: network cards, sound cards, modems, extra ports such as USB or serial, TV tuner cards and disk controllers. Historically video cards were typically PCI devices, but growing bandwidth requirements soon outgrew the capabilities of PCI. PCI video cards remain available for supporting extra monitors and upgrading PCs that do not have any AGP or PCI Express slots.

Many devices traditionally provided on expansion cards are now commonly integrated onto the motherboard itself, meaning that modern PCs often have no cards fitted. However, PCI is still used for certain specialized cards, although many tasks traditionally performed by expansion cards may now be performed equally well by USB devices.

Will these graphic card work on my pc


yes, it will all works for your computer as long as the graphics card you mention have a PCI express interface in order for it to fit into the PCI express slot.

hope this could help you!...:-)THANKS..

About graphics card slot..


The board has a pci express port on it. You can install any video card which uses the PCI-E x16 interface. Almost all new video cards use this interface.

Your board also has an onboard video card (ATI x300 model). You don't actually need a graphics card unless you want the better performance for games.
