My son saved up and bought a Gateway SX2855-UB12P. We have upgraded to 8MB of RAM and now are looking to upgrade the video card which currently is a PCI Express x16 Graphics. Given his machine is a en


Hope you mean upgraded ram to 8 GB 8 mb is not much ram to run a computer.

To upgrade your computer's graphics card, unfortunately you can't just simply purchase a card and install it to your computer. Before purchasing a card, you must first confirm what is compatible with your motherboard. Graphics cards use either AGP or PCI Express technology. Many older computers use AGP. AGP cards can vary in version and bandwidth, whereas PCI Express cards can vary based on their lane . Moreover, the card itself is not your only consideration when looking to upgrade your computer's graphics. You must also consider the strength of your computer's power supply as well, since most newer cards use a lot of power. Download, install and run SiSoftware's Sandra (see link Below) to find out information on your motherboard. http://download.cnet.com/SiSoftware-Sandra/3000-2086_4-10556571.html Click the "Mainboard Information" icon, then write down the information next to "Manufacturer" and "Model." Navigate to the motherboard manufacturer's website. If you are not sure of the website's URL, enter the manufacturer's name into a search engine to find the company's website. Go to the support page and enter your motherboard's model. Download the motherboard's manual or review the specifications. Search the manual or specifications for "Expansion slot," "AGP" or "PCI Express." If the expansion slot uses AGP, note the version (AGP comes in 1.0, 2.0 and 3.0), as well as the bandwidth (1x, 2x, 4x or 8x). If the expansion slot uses PCI Express, note the amount of lanes (x1, x4, x8 or x16). Search the manual or specifications for "Power," "PSU" or "Power Supply." Write down the power supply's voltage (3.3V, 5V or 12V) and amp rating (designated by "A"). Not all manufacturers list the amp rating in their documentation, so you may need to contact the manufacturer for more assistance. Compare the graphics card you want to buy to the motherboard's expansion slot. AGP cards won't work in motherboards using PCI Express, and vice versa. Similarly, AGP 3.0 cards won't work in motherboards using AGP 1.0. A PCI Express x8 card will not fit in a PCI Express x1 slot. Check the voltage and amperage of the video card to the voltage and amperage on your motherboard. A video card that requires a higher amp rating requires a powerful PSU. Hope this helps.

Long beep


The user manual for your motherboard has beep info:

One short beep when displaying logo NORMAL

Long beeps in an endless loop NO DRAM INSTALLED OR DETECTED

One long beep followed by 3 short beeps Video Card not found or video card memory bad.

High frequency beeps when system is working CPU Overheated running at lower speed.

Also I saw this about ram and voltage level settings in the bios

The issue may be related to the voltage setting of your memory modules. The standard operating voltages of DDR2 and DDR3 memory modules, as defined by JEDEC, are 1.8V and 1.5V, respectively. However, some of the memory modules require higher operating voltage than JEDEC's standards. In such case, the memory may sometimes not be able to function properly without enough voltage.

When you encounter instability issue, please first check the operating voltage of your memory modules, and please manually set the memory voltage accordingly in the BIOS.


Hope that helps

Can support processor


If the CPU is not compatible with the Motherboard there is nothing you can do . You can get a CPU for the motherboard that is compatible or you need to replace the Motherboard if you want to use a certain CPU. CPU have different requirements in Voltage and the number of pins for different sockets.

upon checking your motherboard, it has an AGP port for video. so you have to get an AGP video card compatible. New video cards are PCIX capable which will not fit AGP ports..

So you can get any AGP Video card and that should work.

Hi, check the cable from your computer tto monitor, then check that the video card is installed properly.
If these fail your video card is most likely dead and need to be replaced.

VIDEO CARD COMPATIBILITY


All AGP based cards are backwards compatible, so an 8x card should operate at 4x 2x and 1x

however what is important is the voltage of your slot, you can tell by looking at the slot itself,  the AGP slot may have a partition either 1/3 or 2/3rds down the slot, or may have no partition at all,

this slot partition is to prevent you from inserting a card of the wrong voltage.

If there is no partition in the AGP slot then the slot has a switchable voltage, and will automatically switch to the appropriate voltage, (on request from the graphics card AUTOMATIC)

 

so all you need to check is that the graphics card you buy has slots on the AGP interface that accomodate those on your board

 

according to the manual

This board has a 4x AGP slot

What graphics card this motherboard will support


Gigabyte did not put a special graphics slot (AGP, PCIe etc) on this corporate series board. It has good internal graphics support. If you would like to run two monitors, it appears that one choice is the CHAINTECH P-FX20 256MB Geforce FX5200 256MB 128-bit DDR PCI Video Card, based upon user reviews at NewEgg. You may need help getting both graphics adapters to operate together. Typically, there is a jumper on the card that disables "Primary VGA" mode. Your OS should boot using the on-board adapter and then you can tell the OS that it should "Extend the Desktop" to the second (PCI) adapter. Your results may vary.
