Question about PC Chips Motherboard CPU Bundle: PCCHIPS M861G M/B, ALTHLON 64 from2800+to3700+(Package with Cooling Fan) (XX004)
I recently bought this M/B, and have tried to add a video card that I had on my previous system. My existing card is a Radeon VE AGP 32mb card. When placed it in the AGP slot on this board and booted, it comes up as a standard PCI graphics card. I have a program called PCWizard and it tells me that there is an AGP bus, but that it's "disabled". I looked through the manual again and the only instructions to add a card say to plug it into the board. Are there any CMOS settings to change? Theres only one jumper on the board and it's for clearing the CMOS. This is my first M/B with integrated video. Any help will be appreciated.
When you boot up the pc pressing either 'DEL' or 'F2' gets you into the bios menu. Look for something similar to 'PNP/PCI'configuration, then press enter and ensure the main graphics aperture is set to your 'AGP' port and not 'ONBOARD' or 'PCI'. I can assume you have installed the 'AGP' driver from your motherboard installation disc, and the diver for your graphics card. Lastly some AGP cards are not compatible with all boards, due to in some cases different voltage ratings.
