Question about EliteGroup P4M800PRO-M Motherboard
Hi, I recently got this mobo together with a E6300 core 2 duo from frys. There are 2 problems that I hope someone could give me some suggestions: Problem 1) I am unable to use my previous AGP card. When I try to use my AGP card, the system POSTs but nothing is displayed, and then after the POST beep, there will be 2 short beeps. The monitor only displays if I connect it to the onboard graphics and the AGP must NOT be on the mobo at all. If the AGP card is in the mobo, and even if I connect to the onboard graphics, it will not display anything on the monitor when the system is powered on. Any idea how to disable the onboard graphics in the bios? I have changed the "Primary Graphics Adapter" under "PCI/Plug and Play" in the bios to AGP instead of PCI but left the other options as it is. But the problem is still there. Problem 2) I installed 2 sticks of 512meg DDR2 PC4200 ram (kingston kvr533D2/512R) on the mobo. But the system is still very sluggish under windows XP (takes about 30-40 seconds to boot up from the inistial windows logo shown) and occasionally the system will randomly reboot. Not only that, some applications like AIM will randomly crash. I am not sure if the memory is at fault or the motherboard's memory slot is at fault. ps: the cpu and system runs at a cool ~30+ degree celsius. Any help will be greatly appreciated.
I seem to remember this problem .... is it a conroe , or a conrad chip .... excuse my out-of-dated-ness ... but if so ... basically what you need to do is take the board back to frys and tell them to flash it with the current bios ... ECS released a new bios for what exactly model number E6300 , or 6400 i don't remember exactly ...
the differeence .... and I AM *** SURE *** of this .... is once flashed .... it works
any more questions ... ask .... ( I worked for frys service and have 20 of these boards)

I have a P4M800PRO-M with 1gb ram ddr2 533Mhz, and a GeForce FX 5200 128Mb DDR ram.
When i tried use all this together, the pc doesn`t boot.
After trying much things, I lowered the ram speed in the BIOS to 400Mhz and all started to work well.
I think that is some problem with the bus shared between agp and main memory.

DARKART do this because I was having loads of issues with this board. Load default settings in Bios. SAVE don't do anything DO NOT GO BACK IN BIOS AND ADJUST SETTINGS. That is what I did 4 days later and almost about to throw computer out window lol. load default settings and boot. when in boot-up press F8 and go to boot up drive you want. Load your windows and it should work. ps make sure that red light or what ever colour your hard drive lights is flashing when loading. If it doesn't work than do what I might have to do, by an ASUS boarrd. Only got this one because it was CHEAP and that is an understatement

I had the same problem in regards to the Memory modules which were purchased both at Fry's. I removed one memory stick at a time until I was able to isolate my issues with one memory stick. Replaced the memory and everything is back to normal!

Are you certain that your AGP card is 4x or 8x? It seems that is the only kind this one supports. Not sure what the 2 beeps mean in post but it obviously doesn't like your AGP card. Report this info to MB customer support. There do not appear to be any jumpers to manually disable on-board AGP as it is done through BIOS settings only. Also, you might want to first install the AGP drivers using the onboard gfx and then install the Gfx card. As for the memory, I have no idea. Perhaps you could contact the manufacturer or return the MB to fry's for a replacement?
