ASUS P450-VX -How to diasable on board video

I have a sony unit with an ASUS P4 motherboard. I added an AGP Video card but upon cold boot, the on board video port is used. How do I turn off on board video? is it in Bios? or a jumper setting?
Warm boots work flawlessly, its only on cold boot POST that it goes to the wrong video port.

Thanks

Tom

Can I instal an agp video card to the motherboard p4bgl-vm?


Please check inside the computer case if the AGP slot is there, according to the user manual there is no AGP slot and so a AGP card has no connector on the mainboard to be connected to - No it can not be installed to this mainboard.

You can only use PCI Video cards if there is no AGP slot.

What AGP video card will work best in this board? what one is easy to find on eBay? I need to purchase new - the board was a gift with no other cards.


Any AGP graphics card will work in a motherboard with AGP slot.
Depending upon the applications you wish to use with the computer, for example, for just word processing and e-mail, then you only need a low cost graphics card with not much video RAM.
If you have a reasonable powerful late model motherboard and you use it to play graphic intensive computer games then these games need a expensive graphics card with a large amount of video RAM.
Based on this you can go to your friendly computer shop to see what is available and the price range. You can also use Google to research what is available.

Desktop upgrade


Asus is a Solid MotherBoard manufacturer of mother boards. If you are looking for an add-on graphics card (I'm assuming you want to do some gaming), You would want to upgrade the memory for that motherboard to at least 1GIG which can be found here.

Graphics cards wise, I wouldn't advise anything higher then a $100 card... As that motherboard only supports 4x AGP (The type of connection your video card would use) and to get more for what you pay for, you really need a motherboard with an 8x AGP slot to get 100% of what you pay for. A Radeon 9950 at around $92 is the most you would want to put into a system that currently has a p4 2.66 ghz.

"MOV" Moving Images jerky when played back


Hi David,
The Asus MB can use either the “onboard”, (Built into the MB) - VGA 3D controller, SiS 651 chipset. Or the AGP 4x slot. If you are referring to the AGP 4x slot, I'll need to know the model & manufacture of the AGP 4x card. (Windows XP is better served to provide you an update (If any), through windows update service.
As to weather iTunes is causing the *.mov video file to playback un-smooth, suggest you open with windows media player. See if windows plays the file any better. (If not I'd say the problem is with the file & not the player). (Just the way it was recorded).
If you haven't installed all of windows XP updates, suggest you do so. This will include windows media player 11. When updating windows XP look to the left of the site. There you'll see "Hardware & software updates".
Windows update service is not dumb, once you click on "Express", windows should show you any updates you may need for other devices connected to your PC. Including your 4x AGP card.
(I doubt your AGP card is causing the problem). Did or does the Sony camera play-back the *.mov file smoothly?

I'm not exactly sure what you are explaining but to disable in Windows go to: My computer: Properties: Hardware: Device Mgr: Graphics Card and for the one listed that is not your AGP card click: Disable This Device. It's just that simple. Also, in some BIOS,maybe all, there is an AGP: enable/disable box. This of course should be enabled.

Graphics card issue - GA-0ST800 Motherboard


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

Motherboard installation


Hello mecompe,

If you installed an AGP graphics card before your fist boot of the system, you will not receive display. By default the onboard graphics is set to boot display. (If this is the case, remove the AGP graphics card & boot the system). The Asus P4SGX-MX can only use a 4x AGP 1.5volt (only) card.

There is an order of sequences to perform before installing/ adding an AGP graphics card on to the board when the board also uses an integrated graphics card.
First, shut down the system & unplug the power supply from the PC. Connect your monitor to the VGA port at the rear of the board. Remove the AGP card. Re-connect the power supply & boot the system. You should have display? Re-boot the system. As the system starts up press the delete key on the keyboard every 2 seconds. The bios main menu will load. (Open your manual). Go to
section 2.4.3, page 2-20 under Advanced, PCI configuration. Set Primary VGA bios to
[AGP VGA Card]. Save the bios & exit. The system will auto restart. Press & hold the power on/ off button on the PC case until the system shuts off. Unplug the power cord from the PC. Insert the AGP card into the AGP slot. Connect your monitor to the AGP card.
Check all internal data & power cables, (Incase something came loose). Re-connect the power cord & boot the system. You should have display! Install your video software.
If your using the integrated VGA PCI graphics card, go over the bios settings page 2-18 & 2-20.

Need the Asus manual? Click this link;
http://support.asus.com/download/download.aspx?modelname=P4SGX-MX&SLanguage=en-us

To view the manual you'll also need Adobe PDF reader, click this next link for Adobe.
http://www.adobe.com/products/reader/

(The green led (light), means standby. The board is receiving 5volts DC.

If you still do not have display just let me know.
Good luck mecompe!

Upgrading VIDEO CARD


If your motherboard's graphics slot is AGP and your graphics card is AGP then it should be fine if your motherboard is PCI-E and graphics is PCI-E it also is fine make sure your motherboard and graphics are compatible.

Adding AGP Graphic Card on Compaq Evo D310M 845G P4


Was it onboard graphics you had before? If so there is a setting in the bios that you need to change to get it to run from the agp slot.

Hope that helps?
