Comp will not recognize my agp radeon HD2400 pro graphics card

I am pulling my hair out
I have been trying for 2 days to get my p4m80-m4 motherboard to recognize my new graphics card and have tried it all.
I reloaded my os (xp) and bought a upgraded (new) radeon hd2400 agp card.  I have done the following.
updated to all current updates for xp updated all drivers for entire computer (hyperion 521.a) I believe for chipset installed all microsoft .net versions (1.11 to current) Tried disabling on board graphics in multiple ways (nobody has an exact explanation on how to do this) Upgraded my bios to the 2007 version Set bios to see agp first instead of pci tried disabling the display driver in D manager
I have installed this thing over and over in every manner conceivably possible without any change.
Every time I install and turn on the fan on the video card runs but the monitor still blinks like it is not getting any signal what so ever.
I probably have done everything possible but the one thing that will work
Helllllllllpppppp

Try the following : Go into the setup routine using the onboard video. Go to the  Intergrated Peripherals.
Find the onboard video and change it to disable. Save changes.
Change monitor to the AGP card.
  I hope this helps.


Here is a web site for your Award Bios setup:

Inegrated Peripherals
This menu allows you to change the various I/O devices such as IDE controllers, serial ports, parallel port, keyboard etc. You can make changes as necessary. See figure 5.

How many processors supports my motherboard p4m80-m4 biostar ? specially can it support dual core processor...??? also tell me about supported graphics card please help me>>>???


You have a very old motherboard here. It only supports the older AGP 8x video cards. Good luck finding one of those anymore that is worth the price, and don't expect anything you find to be new in box. This is probably where your HD video woes start, although the board was never designed for the higher frame rates that HD requires to be viewable.

As far as the processor goes, this board has the Socket 478 for Intel processors. There are no dual-core processors that are supported by this socket. Here is a link to an article that shows what processors are supported by the socket. Be advised, however, that depending upon the BIOS revision on the board, some of these may not work properly, if at all.


Socket 478 Socket mPGA478B


Really, if you want to view HD, it's time for a real upgrade.

Ok i have a Biostar P4M80-M4 Motherboard and i can not get it to sense any graphic card i own pci or agp. i have been told that i must disable the onboard graphics first and it wont work, i have tried...


Disconnect the hard disk and reboot - wait for its absence to be detected then shut down the pc , reboot and go into the BIOS and make sure the AGP is enabled. Shut down the pc again, insert the new video card, connect the monitor to it then start the pc and go into the BIOS - now you should be able to disable the onboard one.
Connect the hard disk and you're good to go.

New agp video card won't work.


The only way to tell if it is the connection or the card is to try a different card. Take it back to the place you bought it from and have them swap it for a new one.

Dear am_shaegar.

You have provided a list to chhose from.
I bet , hd2400 is the est solution for you couse all the others have the geforce 6200 chip wich is old and slow.
So a HD2400 is best for you.

Good luck, borney from Hungary.

Installed video card and computer won't reboot now


AGP driving control
If you get it wrong, the graphics card won't boot, and you'll be left with a black screen. The only way to remedy this is to temporarily use an old PCI graphics card, change the driving control setting, and then reboot

Graphics cards


Hi noxiney, you're MSI motherboard does have 1 opened AGP 8x4x slot. You can install & run the ATI Radeon X1650 PRO AGP. You can not run PCI-Express because there are no PCI-E slots on the board. There are PCI (White in color) on the board but the AGP slot is much faster than the PCI (White in color slots). The manual states the AGP card can only support 1.5volt video cards & not 3.3volt AGP cards. (Keep this in mind when looking for an AGP card).
Below is a link to a bunch of AGP 8x4x video cards. One or two include DDR2 memory. Carefull where you buy. Check the warranty. (Longer is better). The first one on the list would be compatible. Its not DDR2 but it does have 512MB of memory.
http://www.google.com/products?hl=en&q=AGP+ATI+Radeon+X1650+PRO&um=1&ie=UTF-8&sa=X&oi=product_result_group&resnum=1&ct=title

This card is 1.5v compatable.
http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/SearchTools/item-details.asp?EdpNo=3101648&CatId=318
& this is compatable.
http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/SearchTools/item-details.asp?EdpNo=1642902&CatId=318
Just remember, if the card can run both 8x & 4x it should support the 1.5volt needed to function on the MB.

Enjoy!

Hi Vigilante - Please don't rate this 'til it's fixed. Have you disabled the onboard video in the BIOS?

Graphics card support to motherboard D845GBV


AGP 2.0 and 3.0 4x and 8x feed with the 1.5v spec. AGP 1.0 1x and 2x was fed at 3.3v. In short, you should be fine.
