Question about ASUS P4V8X-MX Motherboard

2 Answers

No video ok first this board was in a case i bought off e-bay. i bought just for case but it had motherboard in it. supposedly good board. when i got it ,it already wired with everything but the hard drive. so i double checked connection and plugged in my hard drive . when i hit power button the cpu fan runs,hard drive spins, cd-rom and cd-write and floppy light stay on. no video, no beeps. i double checked all connections ,changed memory ,disconnected cd-roms and floppy and still no video. Removed battery cleared cmos, still nothing. i suspect board is bad ,but im no computer genius either. power light on board lights up. hdd led or power led light up.

This solution may be a bit late, but it sounds like the motherboard is bad. This might also be the symptom of a power supply that can't supply enough power, though. If you have access to another supply for testing, plug in the main (20/24 pin connector) and CPU (4-pin) cables. Install one stick of RAM, the processor and fan, and try it out. If the system starts, you know then it's the power supply. If not, you've proven the mainboard is at fault.

Go to the Asus website and download the drivers for this board. It's most likely that it did not come with drivers installed. Hopefully this will fix the problem. Good luck.

I have an Asrock Alive NF7G-FullHD motherboard. The pci-e slot is not working what maybe the problem of these boards? I have 4pieces of these boards all have the same problem. Thanks for your input.


You have to change the BIOS settings for the Primary Graphics Adapter. Restart the system and go to BIOS Setting and Change the Primary Graphics Adaptor to [PCI Express]
(This item will switch the PCI Bus scanning order while searching for video card. It allows you to select the type of Primary VGA in case of multiple video controllers.)
The default value of this feature is [PCI]. Configuration options:
[PCI], [Onboard] and [PCI Express].

Asrock Alive NF7G-FullHD User Manual
Please refer to Page 46 of the above Manual

Hope it helps! Good Luck!

I recently bought an old dell optiplex sx 270. I


You are limited in the choices for video card The Optiplex GX270 only has a 160W power supply Not only that but because of the slim case, you're most likely limited to low profile video cards. That means the choices will be extremely limited & not very good. Even after the upgrade, you'll most likely have to stick with older games. follow this link to buy low profile video cards http://www.directron.com/lowprofile.html

Problem with Video on motherboard Gygabyte 8VM533M-RZ


The answer is a definite YES. By definition of the AGP set standard, 8x gear absolutely must be backward compatible to 4x. 

Any 8x card in 4x-only mainbaord, or 4x AGP card in 8x capable motherboard must and most definitely will work.

Computer wont boot


Possible reasons:
1) short circuit between board and case. Check fastening and screws.
2) Poor contact to RAM and video card. Clean the pins by alcogol.

Bought agp video card x1550 256mb ddr 2 by visonek not working freezes at bio


Hi skinnypim210,

Did you buy the visontek x1550 256 ddr 2 agp 8 x video card your self or is it attached already in the mother board you bought? Coz if you buy the original one, it should be mother board only.
Here are my analysis to your problem:
1. The visontek video card which is agp is not possible to be compatible to *********** board. If you just key in your product online the compatible video card is really PCI video cards. it is really dam video card for now. But may be you can re sell it for those motherboard owners that has agp slots.
2. The speed of the video cards are the same but we are talking here of compatibilities.

I hope you're enlighted. just rate my solution so that I will know if you have solved the problem.

Thank you,

New computer won't POST


have you tried different memory as no matter what the board says they don't like some memory .
also take the board out of the case and connect pwr supply.
cpu and fan ,video card , and 1 memory stick

no cables ,keyboard ,mouse or drives connected.
this is called bread boarding.
reset the bios jumper, then put jumper back.
and power up.

No boot, no video


there is a jumper near the board cmos battery try to clear cmos by changing the jumper to the other position for some seconds (while power is off) so smos is clear.
if the problem still exist hook up the board spkr pins to the pannel at the board edge if a beep is heard upon starting the board then RAM is either not working or not positioned properly.
one more possibility :
CPU could be not working. sometimes currupted power supply could be causing this.
