    Hi My best bet is to get the board checked with a service provider . If AGP card is available you can try it on the board it will work.

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:

& this is too:

Good luck bigguy1967!

Hi I have a supermicro x8sti Server Board inside

Basically you have two choices for installation of video card:
1. To purchase small form factor PCIe card suitable for installation on 1U server chasis or
2. Purchase PCI express riser card and to install most full-sized PCI Express cards (Check this link for PCI Riser )

PCI-Express videocards will not work in standard, older PCI slots. They are very different interfaces.

You can find older video cards that are PCI, but they are not very fast and have not been popular for ~10 years.

I have an emachine t2984 with a factory video card. I want to upgrade my video card but read that there are no expansion slots (PCI-e) to do this. Does this mean i need to buy a new computer to play video...

A video card can use AGP, PCI, and PCI-E slots. If it is a older model it should have either AGP or PCI ( Mainly AGP ). Many video cards are still available for these slots.
If you want to play the top games of these day though, most of the time these slots will not work games like this. They COULD work, but the best cards of today is PCI-E. Good luck and do not forget to rate :)

I have a HP Proliant ML110 G3 server that will not produce a video display output. I'm plugged into the onboard graghics slot. There are two slots for add on graghics cards, 1 - PCI-E x4 and 1 - PCI-E x16,...


Do you have any other PCI cards connected to the server board? If so, make sure they are seated fully in the slot. If they are, try removing all of them and try your server again. A lot of time bad PCI or faulty seated PCI cards will cause your system not to display an image. If you remove the cards and still no video, you may have a bad video port - try a known good PCI video card for testing. If this does not work, you will need a new server board.

Good Luck

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.

Graphics card compatibility

That mobo is here"

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:

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.

Can i install pci video card in my p5pe-vm board ?

You could by why would you?  Even your " on board" graphics are faster that an PCI video card would be. You have a AGP 8 slot. Look for a really good AGP 8 video card. That should get you where you want to go. It will not be as fast as a PCIe16 card but you do not have that option nor slot of *********** board. 
Below is the ASUS link to your board.

Video Card

e800, is 18 years old now. wow, old as the hills or dirt. (like me)
not one video card stated, by you, name and numbers, wow.'

welcome to PCI express, PCI died long long ago.
but wait there is none this 18 year old server.... sorry, no express.

the e800 has 7 slots (ivory /white) all PCI of 2 types (legacy)
here are the proper names.
lets read the manual together, easy no, read?
but wait e800s are not express at all, period.
it has 5 32bit slots and 2 64 bit slots, (non PCI express)
page 19 (pdf) showsslots 1 to 4 are primary slots.
see those slot notices, those tell volts and bits.
this is legacy rules 18 year ago. and tricky interrupt rules max.
' a pentium 3 inside, what fossil. that is.
slots are limited to 33MHz.
(read slow as heck, gamer are you ,sorry this is bad fish)
watch out for code 021 errors. PCI
see page 96 (pdf page) see your card slot ID's there?
the big problem on any server, (its no workstation pC)
is video cards. added, later.
the stock VGA chip does 1600x1200? did it go bad?
the stock VGA card was a ATI RAGE XL
i guess lost , missing or dead. sure.
if still good? RAGE?
why is that not good enough(no usage application stated)
hint it will never do gaming at all, hint $60 games! in fact horrid.
the spec, book says some had a built in XVGA port.
does yours? on board?

a free manual. read how jumper and DIP switches work.!

the 1st 4 slots, left side are 5v slots, not 3.3v.
but dual voltage PCI cards work in both type slots.
slots long, are 64bit 5v slots, not 3.3v
but again dual 64bit work 3.3/5v dual cards.

e800-qmgpkmrqk2qyokndrzm3ifjy-5-0.jpg is this dead? please tell what you have here.

now I will toss coins for you.
coin 1.
1: is the RTC coin cell battery good. (pun yes) page 81 in manual
2: The XVGA jack above is dead. so owner wants to add a PCI card.
3: the old manual hints at dual video cards but fail to say how.
my guess is that the two, 64bit slots are in fact for this dual VGA.
SO buy one. card here, and try it,
it will cost more than the PC is worth for sure.

do not buy :
  • Express cards, useless
  • do not buy AGP cards, again, useless. straight gold finders yes. funny ones NO.
  • 64bit PCI is it. 5volt only or dual voltage.
  • do not buy 3.3v only cards, vast types sold..even used, vast.
the demand for such card today is near ZERO.
so are rare, now, and scalpers love to feed the rare folks needs, bingo.
so lets do newegg, as they have check box for PCI only
is why, few do that .
here are the players.
no hits, all are 3.3v, (3.3v means quasi modern)
5v cards are relics, 3 notch cars, are dual voltatge
and missing here.
sorry I cant find one here.

lets try scalper.bay. (I FAILED HERE TOO)
the problem is your mobo is not dual voltage mobo a very serous limitation in 2018 , no?
in fact most seller there are clueless that 64bit + 5v exists.
tons of agp and express and 3.3v there. only

id get a real MOBO, for sure.

here is the magic rule on old slots. here

right side 2nd one down, bingo 5v mobo.

No vedio

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.

Im out of video card, i got low memory, i dont know if video card are missing or graphics card.. im out of graphics everytime i played games..

You most likely need to upgrade your Video Card to a Card that has more RAM... Find out if *********** Board has AGP or PCI-Express slot, hopefully you don't just have PCI slots, but chances are if you are on a Desktop you can upgrade your Video Card.
