    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:

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.

Video card compatable


If you're looking for what type of video card would be compatible with this motherboard:

According to the specifications for this particular motherboard, it has one (1) PCI-E x16 slot, one (1) PCI-E x1 slot, and two (2) PCI slots. When shopping for a video card, simply look at the detailed specifications of the card and make sure that it fits into one of these three types of slots. As long as it fits either a PCI-E x16, PCI-E x1, or PCI slot, it should be compatible with the motherboard.

As a general rule, the vast majority of video cards these days are made to fit PCI-E x16 slots, so you shouldn't have much trouble finding one that'll work with your board.

There is no display. my ram, CPU and all other parts are in good condition. the keyboard light is on and the cpu fan starts automically.


If your monitor is working properly, the you might have a bad video card in your computer. Try several isolation.

1. Try to plug another monitor to your computer.

2. If you have a built in video card, try to install an external video card to one of those pci slots on *********** board.

3. If you have an external video card, try removing it from its existing slot and place it in another slot.

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.

Can't find PCI Slot for Video Card


Hi, I believe what you are looking for is the PCI-E slot, which current video cards would fit in. Unfortunately, this board doesn't have one only standard PCI slots which will not accomodate any of the current video cards on the market.

You may be able to find an actual PCI video card on Ebay or through a vendor with used parts but if you are hoping to play current games you are better off investing in a newer PC or Motherboard. The generation this board came from did usually have an AGP slot for video cards but this particular one did not due to it's small design.

Sorry there isn't an easy answer for you on this one.

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.

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. http://www.asus.com/search.aspx?searchitem=1&searchkey=P5pe-vm

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.

Graphics card problem


Hi rovin,
So you bought an XFX GeForce 256MB video card. You're board has 1 free AGP 8x video slot & 3 PCI (White opened slots).
You mention there is not slot for the new card. (What type of video card did you buy)? PCI-E, AGP or PCI?
The only slot you're board does not have is a PCI-Express.
Look in you're manual on page 1-7 for the location of the AGP video card slot.
94565e6.jpg If you bought the wrong card, exchange it for an AGP 8x or PCI.
The ASUS P5PE-VM uses a integrated Intel® 865G chipset with integrated Intel® Extreme Graphics 2 Technology, which uses you're system memory to function.
If you need a manual you can download it from Asus. Click on the link to open to the P5PE-VM download site.

I hope you find this helpful.
