Agp8x wont work with p4c800 deluxe motherboard..

Last time I submited a question here, you experts had me fixed in like 10 mins flat! Awesome and thank you!

Ok this has been boggling my mind and I have been working on it all day and I am really frustrated at this points... I have installed a new video card stealth s120 256 mb DDR AGP8x when I run everest it reads it as

Device description
Diamond S9250 PCI 256 DDR <--- PCI?? its in my black AGP slot...

Chip type reads as
RADEON 9250 AGP (0x5960)

Now I open the catalyst which is the program to control the graphics accelerator card and I switch it to 4x or 8x AGP and it restarts + tests the settings but it wont allow it to run on either of those modes...

I have a ASUS p4c800 Deluxe motherboard which allows AGP ... I am so lost I don't know what to do this really sucks.. I spent $300 on parts in the last week and I can't get this thing working right... any help is appreciated. THANKS!

Try it without the catylist software. You dont need the software only the driver. The program will give you the option of not loading the Catylist software

    When the software loads it comes to a screen where it gives you a few options to de check. The catalyst software is the only option that can be deselected . The driver and the C++ can't be. Reinstall the program and have a carefull look at this page.You may need to run the custom install option to do this.I know it can be done because I have an ATI card and I don't like the Catalyst suite that comes with ATI cards.

Is p4c800 deluxe compatible with an nvidia geforce gtx 550 ti (1 Gb)?

The Asus P4C800 Deluxe motherboard uses an AGP expansion slot, for a graphics card, Jorgito.

The Nvidia GeForce GTX 550ti graphics card is a PCI Express graphics card. Uses a PCI Express x16 expansion slot,

No sir, is the answer.



You need an AGP 8X graphics card.
Here is but one example,

You also need to look at what your Power Supply maximum rated Wattage is. Then look at the system requirements for the graphics card, and see what the -> MINIMUM power supply requirement is.

For the above graphics card it is 400 Watts, OR greater.

The board is only spec'd for DDR400 RAM. Putting faster in mostly will work, but you will NOT double the speed. Stick with what the board was designed for, and save a little money.

P4C800E Deluxe Motherboard Problem

A bad checksum can be caused by a flat or near flat BIOS battery. Replace the battery and set the date and time.
Also set the BIOS to the default setup, ie go to reload default settings, or remove the BIOS battery for 1/2 hour the insert the battery and set the Date and Time.

No boot or bios or display at turn on.

I had exactly the same problem with my kids PC last week, also an Asus on an AMD flatform. I reset the BIOS and clean install the OS and now its working fine. You have to reformat the harddisk, cause in my case it doesn't show its exact capacity when I it hooked it up as slave drive with my own PC. Maybe a virus did it.
