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

Gateway computer is stuck in power saving mode.


The Gateway 818GM is a few years old but if - hopefully - the motherboard auto-detects a video card, try removing the MSI MS-8936 video card & swapping over the monitor lead to the other VGA connector fed from the motherboard.

Failing that, if you think it's a faulty video card, they're cheaply available on eBay eg for US$6.70 here:
MSI NVIDIA GeForce MX 4000 MS 8936 64 MB DDR SDRAM AGP 4x 8x Graphics

Is there always a free slot for a video card on motherboards that have integrated video cards


Most motherboards have expansion slots, you need to identify the type of expansion slots that are installed eg. PCI. AGP etc.
If your motherboard has an AGP slot (this slot is for graphics card) then purchase an AGP graphics card.
You may need to disable the on-board graphics card in the BIOS setup.

I have a dell dimension 3000. I want to add a 2nd monitor. I believe the video is integrated, Does the unit have a slot to add a video card. What kind of card should be added?


The Dimension 3000 Springdale G chipset supports AGP 8X cards, integrated video, integrated audio, ICH5, 533/800 MHz FSB, dual channel DDR 333/400 memory, integrated Serial ATA, and the Intel Pentium 4 Prescott.
The AGP 8X slot refers to Advanced Graphics Port. You can add a AGP video card if you motherboard has that slot. Usually that slot is encased by a green plastic enclosure .

Video upgrade


it depends upon your mb. some mb can support pci and agp . some of them support pci and pci-ex . so if your mb has agp or pci-ex slot than you have to buy a video card according to that. video cards range from 128mb to 1024 mb. you have to check your motherboard specification which card it can support. also it depends upon the power supply unit. need at least 300 watts for 128 mb - 256 mb card.

While the system may be emitting a memory error beep code, that obviously is not the only issue here. If there is onboard video and it isn't working, try this:

1: Unplug system
2: Open case
3: Look for the CR2032 flat watch-style battery located on the motherboard, usually around where the front panel connections are
4: Remove this battery using a flathead screwdriver to push on the tiny 'hook' of metal holding it in. DO NOT PRY THE BATTERY OUT.
5: Let system sit for 10 seconds and put the battery back in.
6: Power the system back up

What this does is drain the system's memory completely. If it was perhaps set to use the AGP video card (which isn't installed, hence no video), this setting should be cleared and you should get onboard video.

Failing this, really, your only choice is a new motherboard, or to install an AGP card and see if it works. If you don't feel like hunting down a replacement board, I'd just order a cheap AGP card. If the AGP card works, use it. If not, then your motherboard is really pooched and you'll need a new one anyways.

About the memory beep issue:

You can google memtest86 and download that program. Burn it to a bootable CD and run the memory test; it should tell you if the memory is good or not.

hope that helps!

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.

I'm trying to locate my video card inside my PC. I have a Medion 7309c Model. Whenever I power my system unit on it goes through the boot process and then goes to a blank screen, so i believe that my video...


Most home user PC's of the last while now have onboard video cards so you would need a new motherboard if the video card were bad. Good news it it's likely that the system's drivers just failed. If you boot to safe mode with networking support you know it's just drivers. When booting with networking support you can find a new driver for your video card or even simply remove the video card from the device manager and reboot. Sometimes the latter works, as just a single file was corrupt and needed to be recopied. If this doesn't work you can start looking at the RAM (since thats technically your video memory). It can be as simple as a bad connection so you can just blow the slots out w/ an air compressor (canned air is too weak) and reseat the RAM. Otherwise test your RAM in someone else's system or get some RAM and try booting. Last of course is the motherboard which hopefully isn't the case for you.
