The MSI KT4V motherboard is an AGP board supporting 4x/8x AGP. You cannot use a newer PCI-Express Video Card, however an Nvidia GeForce FX 5500 either PCI or AGP will run just fine in it. The NVidia FX 5500 doesn't come in PCI-E. Additionally The ATI Radeon 9550 doesn't come PCI-E so you should be safe with AGP versions of either. I should note however, that you'll get better performance out of the ATI Radeon 9550 as opposed to the NVidia FX 5500.

I hope this answers your question,

    If the wattage from your power supply is insufficent to handle the Video Card you may need a new PSU( Power Supply Unit). Please also ensure that you have the 4 pin black and yellow connector attached to the motherboard (this provides extra power to the PCI and AGP bus) and if applicable the 6 pin power connector on the video card. If you unplug the new video card and run it with either the on board or old video card and everything runs smooth this indicates your issue is either insufficent power, bad drivers(least likely), or thermal issues such as overheating. The Nvidia GeForce 5500 is an older card and shouldn't run too hot. If your PSU wattage is under 400 watts given your board, I suggest upgrading that. to 400-650 watts.

Can I use a AGP 8X ATI Radeon 9550 256MB 128bit Video Card in my pc?


No. The mainboard you are listing is not capable of AGP cards. AGP cards have gone the way of the dinosaur. Modern mainboards do not have AGP-compatible slots anymore, only PCIE 1x, 8x, and 16x slots.

What graphics card can i get for a ms-7071 v1 motherboard


One AGP (Accelerated Graphics Port) 8x/4X slot. First is the Nvidia Geforce Fx 5500 256MB and the second is ATI Radeon™ 9550. These two video cards are supported by your motherboard. Have a nice day.

VIA KT400 Chipset Driver update fried my ATI Radeon 9550 AGP Card


AGP is a bit old for win7, i'd drop it. that said, if the ati card is an addin perhaps your onboard (via) chip is causing the problem. turn it off in your bios so that the install never even detects it and use drivers from ati.

With ASUS M2N-MX mainboard, ATI Radeon 7000 Series problem.


Your Motherboard has an onboard video chipset made by Nvidia. Nvidia and ATI have a history of not playing nice with each other.

I have 2 possible solutions for you.

1.) Remove the Radeon card and use the Nvidia onboard card (Essentially a Geforce 6100)

2.) Enter the bios (Usually done by hitting <Delete> or <F12> while the computer is booting up) Your Motherboards manual can tell you for certain. Then find the options for onboard video and disable it.

Then boot up the PC, When it say starting Windows press <F8> to bring up the windows boot menu. Select "Start in Safe mode" Once this loads up open the device manager, look under "Display adapters" find the entry for the Nvidia adapter, right click on it and select either "Uninstall" or "Disable this device"

Which you choose depends on your personal preference Whether you like Nvidia or ATI boards better.

If it makes your decision easier a Geforce 6100 is roughly equivalent to a Radeon 8500 in performance.

I hope this helps

Intel P$ 1.8 mhz on a D845HV/D845WN board


Before removing your current card swap video outputs on the PC. If currently connected to the VGA output switch to the HDMI connector AT the video card. Use the HDMI to VGA adapter that came with the video card. Check & see if the display loads Pc starts. Taking the information directly from your motherboard manual pg. 25, your AGP video can only run at, AGP supporting 1.5 V 4X AGP cards. The 9600pro runs at 8x & it is not backwards compatible. (able to run at either 8x or 4x). You could run the Sappire ATI Radeon 256MB 9550 DDR AGP 4x/8x 1.5volt card.
Here is one site: http://www.colordrives.com/sapphire-ati-radeon-9550-256mb-ddr-agp-4x-8x-video-card---retail-box.html
When you do get the video card be sure to set your bios AGP to the correct size as listed in your manual pg. 109 subsection 4.4.7
I hope this helped.

AGP video Board recommended for PC Chips M925 V7.3


FOR YOUR MOTHERBOARD , ITS BETTER TRY NVIDIA GEFORCE CARDS LIKE GEFORCE MX4000 , FX 5200 , 5500 , 6300 BUT DONT USE SLI CARDS , THEN ABOUT YOUR ASUS RADEON ITS ADVICED THAT ASUS RADEON 9200 WILL WORK BETTER WITH INTEL MOTHERBOARDS
