Question about Gigabyte GA-8ST800 Motherboard

2 Answers

Graphics card issue - GA-0ST800 Motherboard

I am running some games on a P4 2.4 Ghz system with a 128Mb video card. (Windows XP)
I have just updated RAM from 512Mb to 2GB - saw some improvement when booting up and switching between programs.
I am contemplating upgrading to a 512Mb video card, but i need to know if there are any restrictions on which ones I can install.
Is the HIS RADEON HD3850 AGP 512MB DDR3 video card suitable for this board?
Thanks

Hi,
Yes, it's safe.
Your motherboard is intended for AGP-4X vga cards only
But Radeon HD3850 supports AGP-4X/8X AGP Slot
So, no problem should occur.

Happy fixya!!! peace...

Your motherboard have an AGP 4X port, you can easy upgrade whit that card since it is an APG-card. Not sure tough that your motherboard can handle all that DDR3 power witch come with the card but im sure u will notice a big improvment.
I think that a cheaper card with 512 Mb DDR2 will give u the same results.

Good luck

No video after boot up


Ahem.

Driver: Small piece of software that allows the Operating System to communicate with a device.

The device in question is the graphics chipset.

The Operating System is now Windows 7 64-bit.

You were running Windows XP -> 32bit

(Have you got audio? Sound)

This is why I repeatedly try to tell people;

LOOK TO SEE IF DRIVERS ARE AVAILABLE,
before trying to upgrade to frickin Windows 7!

Yes sir; sure are.

+ VGA (3)
Suggest use the oldest version -
AMD VGA driver V8 631.0.0



http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Integrated_circuit

The reason Windows XP blue screened is because the Integrated Graphics of the Asus M4A785TD-V motherboard couldn\'t handle the game.

You need a graphics card. A PCI Express graphics card inserted into the BLUE PCI Express x16 expansion slot, on the motherboard.

(Remember; Install the software F-I-R-S-T, then unplug from power, FOLLOW Anti-Static Precautions; and THEN physically install the graphics card.
Software; The Installation Disk for the graphics card.
Has the Drivers, and user interface.
User Interface: Catalyst Control Center for ATI graphics cards;
Nvidia Control Center for Nvidia graphics cards)

Can windows 7 be installed on asus k8v-mx mb with amd sempron 2.4 1gb ddr1ram


this is the minimum spec for Windows 7:

  • Processor: 1 GHz 32-bit or 64-bit processor
  • Memory: 1 GB of system memory
  • Hard drive: 16 GB of available disk space
  • Video card: Support for DirectX 9 graphics with 128MB memory (in order to enable Aero theme)
  • Drive: DVD-R/W drive
  • Internet connection (to download the Beta and get updates)
Its not the motherboard, its the processor speed, RAM size, and hard drive space, and video card capability that counts.Your processor speed well meets this criteria and also your RAM size is within spec for Windows 7, and im sure you will have in excess of 16GiG hard drive space. So its all down to your video card. You may need to install DirectX 9.Hope this helps :)

Can NBA2k10 (PC) work for Nvidia 8200M G (128mb) (integrated)?


It can play it, but for a good rendering you should put the game at the lowest settings and at low resolution. Save a few bucks more and buy a separate video card.

My motherboard driver cd has lost & i could not run 3d games


intel d915 series comes with only 96MB of internal graphics card.
you can share 32 mb to make it 128MB graphics card.

i think you are getting the message "graphics card not found" because your game was designed to work with only some special models of graphics card.

try using a application called "3danalyser" and fake your graphics card only to the game
i hope you have good processor to handle the grapshics

You can try running the game in another mode. I had a similar problem playing WOW but I fixed it.
Here's how.
1)Create a desktop shortcut of the exe file of the game.
2)Right click on the shortcut and click properties
3)In the target field you will see something like "C:/Program files/teamfortress/tfrotress.exe"
All you need to is click it and move the cursor to the end give a space and type -opengl. It would look something like this
C:/Program files/teamfortress/tfrotress.exe" -opengl
If it doesn't work try
C:/Program files/teamfortress/tfrotress.exe" -direct3D
One of these modes gotta work. My money would be on opengl. If it still doesn't run then try updating your graphics card driver and try again.

Hope this helps,
Sai.

Hi Harikris, no you can not install just any graphics card. You're Intel D845GLLY board uses an onboard graphics card. (It's an AGP graphics card).
If it's you're intention to install a new graphics card you must use a PCI graphics card. (Understand that the AGP onboard graphics is faster than a PCI graphics card). However, the PCI cards do use their own memory. (Which fee’s you're system memory to run windows.
The Intel D845GLLY has 4 PCI (White) slots, onboard. You can add a video card into the system. You're onboard video card does use you're system memory to function. If you're PC has 512MB of system memory & you're video card is set to use 128MB of memory. Than you're system is left to run with 128MB. One would think you're system is running a little slow.
The Intel D845GLLY motherboard can use up to 256MB of system memory. You can set the amount of system memory in the bios as shown on page 49, table 18. In you're manual. If you do not have you're manual you can download it from here: http://www.intel.com/support/motherboards/desktop/d845glly/sb/cs-008853.htm
May I suggest you increase you're system memory to 1GB. Than increase you're graphics memory to 256MB. You're system will run faster & so will you're graphics card. These older Intel motherboards require memory current for you're board. Click this link: http://www.memory-up.com/Memory/IntelD12696.html
If you still feel that you want to use the slower PCI graphics card you can choose from any listed on this link: http://www.newegg.com/product/ProductList.aspx?N=2000380048+1069609642&Submit=ENE&SubCategory=48&nm_mc=KNC-GoogleAdwords&cm_mmc=KNC-GoogleAdwords-_-NA-_-NA-_-NA
You will also need to change a setting in you're bios to boot to the PCI card instead of the AGP onboard card. Page 49.

Good Luck!

Hi sunee, when a motherboard has an integrated graphics card it's something you can not see. (Integrated mean part of the board). The Intel you have has an 865GV chipset (No card slot). You'll need to enter your bios & find your graphics card. The bad part of a integrated video card is it shares your main system memory to function. So if you set the memory usage to say 128MB & your PC has a total of 512MB your video card takes 128MB leaving your system to run 384Mb.
This link is drivers for your 865GV chipset Intel board.
http://downloadcenter.intel.com/filter_results.aspx?strTypes=all&ProductID=1049&OSFullName=Windows*+XP+Professional&lang=eng&strOSs=44&submit=Go%21
This link shows your board & its specifications.
http://www.firingsquad.com/hw/4096/FIC_P4M-865GV/

You can add a PCI video card to free system memory.
I suggest you check your manual. You are looking to see if your bios will allow you to use a PCI video card.
