I culdent find P4M266A-8235 on Via Tec site.

Find out who the manufacure is for your motherboard, go to your manufactures site and check your motherboard, Check if your motherboad have PCI EXPRESS on it cos both the graphic card you refer to is PCIex-cards.

I think you have an APG port on your motherboad, so those graphic cards is not compatible, but check to be 100% sure.

Good luck!

    When you find an APG card. the instrucions on that card will let you know.

    I'm sure that almost all APG cards will support your motherboad.



    Good luck finding a disent APG-card

That video card won't work on your system board. The video card requires a PCI-E expansion slot, but the system board has an AGP slot. You'll need to look for an AGP video card. I tried looking on the site you gave for the card you were considering and they don't seem to have any AGP type cards, so you will need to shop around some more.

    Any AGP video card would work. The ATI card you list is a good choice. 512MB of video memory will give you good performance. You should enjoy it, especially if you are a game player.

I'm looking for sound card driver for motherboard serial p4m266a 8235. Could you help me? Thanks.


Drivers are specific for the operating system used. I suggest you go to the OS manufacturer and see what you can find. If this is Windows which you use, go to the 'Windows Hardware and Software Compatibility List' and find your device listing - you will get the answer there.

Memory bank 2 is dead, no visual from graphics card


1st -- assuming you did goto youre bios first and adjust where nessicary -- grafics set to AGP not PCI or Pallet snoop (off).
Memory banks running NON ECC ( most common ) ..
blaa blaa blaa -- read ur Bios Update notes -- memory compatability .. and or .. make sure it's seated firmly in its spot-or swap em see if it's the bank or the mem ... run memtest to confirm ..
all else fails or dont want to mess with settings ---
then simply

RE-FLASH with Older Bios ---- see if problem persists ! ..
