AGP cant work and Memory issues

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?

Just want to now what is the biggest duo 2 cpu can you put in the acer aspire l310 desktop

This is the standard equipment for your model.
Problem is, your system is already maxed out for heat.
If you add a faster CPU, you will most likely suffer from overheating, but yes you can add up to a 3 gig+ duo with no problem fitting it in the socket. Expect your power supply fan to run constantly though.

Processor: 1.86GHz Core 2 Duo E6300
Memory: 1GB DDR2
Storage: 320GB hard drive
Optical Drives: Double-layer DVD±RW
Monitor: None
Graphics: Integrated Intel GMA 3000
Operating System: Windows Vista Home Premium

1333 FSB processor ( E6850 ) on a 1066 FSB motherboard, DDR2 667 memory

Hi proenza. you're making good sence! You're D945GCL MB should be able to run 1066 FSB. Not 100% sure you're memory will keep FSB up to 1066.
Here's the trouble though. The Intel Core 2 Duo E6850 will not run on the Intel D945GCL motherboard because it is not supported. Look here at Intel's web site. Supported CPU's.

Intel E6850 specs sheet.

Intel E6700 spec sheet.

This CPU is supported by the D945GCL MB.

Intel Core 2 Duo E4700 Processor BX80557E4700 - 2.60GHz.

In order to get 1066MHz (CPU can run at), you'll also need the memory support at 800MHz. The D945GCL MB can only run DDR2-667MHz.
Many people buy a CPU to run MB's specs (1333MHz) just to find the same MB does not support DDR2-1066MHz or DDR2-800MHz. Motherboard Mfg's are lagging. DDR3-1333MHz is out there now to support the 1333 MHz CPU FSB.

I hope this has helped you make a decision proenza.

Good Luck!
