If a wire touched the side of the video card and there was a spark then that wire shorted something out. The video card is likely bad now and it is also possible that there was damage to the motherboard. If the motherboard still work then a working PCI video card or AGP video card would work. If there is damage to the motherboard from the short then it is possible that the PCI slots as well as the AGP slot will not work but there is no way to tell if that is the case without testing the electronics on the motherboard or plugging in a working video card to see if it works.

Use of PCI-e x16 slot for non-video card


...........................................!O_O!...........................................................

WHY would you want to do that?

There is a PCI-Express x1 slot on the motherboard.
Black in color, and in-between the black PCI-Express x16 slot, and a white PCI slot.

Use the PCI-E x1 RAID adapter card in the PCI-E x1 slot, and a PCI-Express graphics card in the PCI-E x16 slot. Sheesh!

A PCI-Express slot is not an evolved PCI slot.
Completely different technologies.

PCI uses a shared Parallel bus architecture, while PCI-Express is based on Serial point-to-point.

So your idea of how to 'fix' your problem, is to use a PCI-E x1 card in a PCI-Express x16 slot, and a PCI graphics card in a PCI slot?

Completely backwards.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Motherboard_diagram.svg

PCI-Express x16 slot uses the same lanes from the Northbridge, as the OnBoard video?

UTTER NONSENSE!

The Northbridge chip handles the Faster capabilities of a computer.
Handles the Processor, Ram Memory, and HIGH-SPEED Graphics.

HIGH-SPEED graphics is the Accelerated Graphics Port (AGP) technology, and the PCI-Express technology.

The Southbridge chip handles the Slower capabilities of a computer.

The PCI bus is one of those slower capabilities handled by the Southbridge chip.

The PCI bus is also a shared bus. This slows data down.
The AGP bus, and PCI-Express bus are Not shared. They also have a direct link to the Northbridge chip.

The PCI Bus has to go through the Southbridge chip, which has to go through the Internal Bus, THEN to the Northbridge chip.

OnBoard video, or Integrated Graphics, uses the PCI bus.
When you inserted the PCI-E x1 RAID card in the PCI-Express x16 slot, and a PCI graphics card in the PCI slot, BIOS just assigned another IRQ for the PCI-Express x16 slot.
(Interrupt Request)

No fancy technology going on there.

Backwards technology going on with a PCI-Express x1 card in a PCI-Express x16 slot, though.

I do not concur, and do not think that is a good solution, Kevin.

Any PCIE video card will work in the slot provided, although some larger cooled ones may stop you using pci slot 1.

Can you tell me what prosesor should be in this board as i have got sempron sda2400 ut3d and not sure if it is the right one for the board if not what should i put in also the on board grafix dont work ....


Can you post the model number of the motherboard. It should be between the PCI slots or somewhere around there.
Semprom sda2400 uses Socket A so any CPU that is designed for Socket A will work.
That would be Most of the AMD Semprom family CPUs as well as AMD Athlon XP CPUs
If the on-board graphics card is not working can you check if you have PCI or AGP graphics installed? Usually a AGP and PCI graphics card will disabled on-board graphics card.

Want to upgrade the video card but dont know where to start. are the three expansion slots at the bottom of the board used to expand drivers like the video?


Hi there.
Seeing as the graphics on that board are integrated Intel Extreme Graphics and the board does not have PCI Express or AGP slots then you can use one of the 3 PCI expansion slots to install a video card.
The largest PCI graphics card I've seen is a 512MB card and that was not cheap as the latest video slots are PCI Express.
It will however free up essential system memory which is always a good thing.

Nvidia graphics card won't fit in asus ncch-dl motherboard


The NCCH-DL has the following slots:

1 - AGP-Pro 8x
(you can use regular AGP cards in here as well as long as you have the little plastic thing that comes with the mobo... you may even be able to without it)

2 - PCI-X

This is NOT PCI-E.

You CAN use regular PCI cards in a PCI-X slot IF the company that manufactured the card left the space between the little metal contacts... unfortunately, many PCI cards are made with the space filled in with useless plastic... I've heard you can cut the little space yourself and it'll work fine... I don't know why it wouldn't but be careful, and of course do at your own risk.

I currently use a regular PCI network card in this slot because the onboard LAN port only has Win64 bit drivers on the web site and it works just fine.

A PCI-E card will NOT work in this slot.

Generally speaking the PCI-X cards you are going to find are riser cards, network cards, firewire cards, and controler cards.

2 - Regular PCI Slots.

I think you know what PCI is.

Hi,

The 333/400 is the speed of the RAM in MHz 333 and 400 MHz. That corresponds with PC2700 and PC3200 that is in your specification.
250 GB hdd will work. Make sure that it is IDE and make sure that you connect the jumpers for master/slave the correct way.
As for the graphic card. If you have this one 'VGA SPARKLE 7300GT 512MB DDR2 128BIT PCI-X' than it will not work because it is a PCI-X card not an AGP card. You will need an older card for this motherboard.

best regards

Graphics card compatibility


That mobo is here"
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813138090

It says it has a PCIe x16 slot, so really good graphics cards running on PCIe x16 will work on it.

This is a list of the PCI express x16 cards you can buy:
http://www.newegg.com/Product/ProductList.aspx?Submit=ENE&N=2010380048%201069609641&name=PCI%20Express%20x16

Generally the more they cost the better the performance but that is another story =)

If you wanna to hit me up with your full PC specs of CPU, RAM, Windows version, etc, i could recommend cards for certain games.

It also has PCI so older and less powerful PCI cards can likely be used.

Hi bigguy1967, the motherboard does have an 8x AGP slot.
Universal AGP v3.5 Compliant and Support 1.5V AGP Interface Only. Here is a link to a couple AGP 8x cards.
This is 1.5v compliant:
