I am building a pc using a asus motherboard p4b533-e i downloaded the users manual and built it in accordance to that. i am not very literate with pc building so be warned. i have the pc built to the specs, it boots up i hear the HDD kick in but i cant tell if it works as the connection for my monitior does not fit the connection on the pc.... my idea to solve this was to put my AGP in and connect the monitor to that as it fits, PROBLEM the red led warning light stays off supposedly meaning it works but the monitor still says no signal input, i have been told to download the drivers for the AGP onto disk and that would work with the cd in, the problem is that i only know it is a nvidia AGP i dont know the model so how do i find this out?

Re: trouble building a pc
Hi, I have installed a nvidia cd installer to my unit and I found out that the latest cd (nvidia installer) the lots of driver installed in it, means it has the old nvidia driver to the latest nvidia driver and automatically detect the kind of driver needed to your cp. Better if you have a cd installer for that. Thanks

1. Usually going to the manufacturer site is a good place to download any lost or corrupted drivers or installation software. You may also call the manufacturers customer service line and talk to a customer service agent or tech will be happy to assist you in getting the driver or installation disk you need to restore your PC unit to factory default and beyond. You will need to know the model number and operating system information to give them a mental look at what they are working with. I hope this helps. Have good day!

Yes you can. Go into the BIOS and change the boot option to boot from cd first and this will boot from your windows vista cd.
3. Is this system compatible with this Motherboard?
Hi gogovie_2, There is only one speaker controller (C-Media 8738-MX), built into the P4B533 motherboard which is where you would connect a home speaker system into the lime green port located at the rear of the motherboard. (See your manual, page 1-7 for the motherboard layout & location of the line out jack for your speaker plug). See pages 1-8, 1-9 & page 1-10 for descriptions of each item shown on page 1-7. The ASUS P4B533 MB usually comes with a small black speaker that plugs onto the motherboard. You can see the location for this speaker on page 2-33. Number 18 shows the configurations for the 20-pin panel & internal speaker. This tiny speaker is used for system P.O.S.T. Known as Power On Self Test. During the boot up process a single beep will sound off. This tells you that the motherboard bios has passed P.O.S.T. If you need the manual for the ASUS P4B533 motherboard you can download it directly from Asus. Click on the link below. Once the link has loaded type the model number, P4B533 in the search window (Upper right hand corner) & click the white arrow. http://support.asus.com/download/download.aspx?SLanguage=en-us Click on, " P4B533 related files for download ". The next window will want you to click the dropdown menu & choose your operating system. (Do so). Asus will display all drivers, manual & bios files for the P4B533 motherboard. If you download the manual you'll need Adobe reader to view the manual. You can download Adobe for free at this next link; http://www.adobe.com/products/reader/ If you do not have sound from your home speaker system make sure you have installed SoundMax/C-Media software. This program uses jack auto detecting censer software to help setup your speaker (s). You can also download the latest audio drivers. If you think you need a new (Internal speaker) you can buy one from here; http://www.pcpartscollection.com/mosp.html & from here; http://www.anitec.ca/product/11692/generic_4_pin_speaker_for_motherboards/ Lastly, if the information provided here has not answered your question, please rephrase your question.
