Question about PNY Verto GeForce FX 5200 (128 MB) AGP Graphic Card
I have a PNY Verto GeForce FX5200 installed in an MSI KM4M-V. Any time I attempt a 'soft reboot' (Windows 'Restart' option, CTRL-ALT-DEL in true DOS, or exiting CMOS SETUP), the card does not re-initialize.
The KM4M-V has onboard video, and it is one of the generation of boards that disables the onboard video if an AGP card is present. When the FX5200 fails to initialize (after any soft-reset), the onboard video works instead, telling me that the BIOS did not detect the card. Windows also does not detect it. There is no CMOS option to disable the onboard video, except to set ''VGA Shared Memory Size'' to 0. If I do this, then soft-reset results only in a locked computer.
Rebooting via the RESET button works fine.
I have updated to the latest BIOS available for my mainboard from www.msicomputer.com
I am currently running Windows XP Professional SP3, but this is not OS-dependent, as I had the same problem with Vista Ultimate. I have booted into pure DOS (via a boot floppy) and also had the same problem.
