Question about Diamond Multimedia Stealth S120 Radeon 9550, Graphic Card

1 Answer

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.

The ASUS A7N8X only supports AGP8X, the 9500GT is PCI Express. There is no way the 9500GT will work with this board.

My lil bro Computer wont relay any video

You have done a lot of the basic maintenance steps. You might want to try and reseat the CPU. Sometimes they "creep out of their sockets because to the heat. Also, check to make sure the CPU fan is running if you are sure the power supply works. Without a fan, the CPU can overheat and produce your symptoms. Hope this helps.

Looking to upgrade my graphic card one last time. Currently running a RADEON X850 AGP 8x. Dell XPS, 3 GHz Pent4 w/875P chipset.(800MHz Bus Clock, 400MHz DDR, Hyper-threaded (2)-- I would like the highest...

I wouldnt know whether you just like ATI Graphics cards, or it was recommended for you. But I would still give you my straight forward advice, and this is : Go for NVIDIA Ge-FORCE graphics cards. Trust me, you would thank me for it later.
I didnt want to recommend a specific model for you though, because of our difference in country locations, but just try and get a high memory (like 256MB and above), NVidia Graphics card that is compatible with your system. Also check out the available slot on your system that you will use for it first before you go (So that you wont go and get an AGP slot card when you have just an open PCI Slot). I'm telling you this because I've used A LOT of graphics cards also (Over 10 years now)! and I've come to that conclusion that NVIDIA makes the best graphics card.
Hope this helps you out.

Yes, it should work ok.. Your motherboard supports 1 x AGP8X, and since this card is 8x AGP, and includes a power adapter cable, it should be fine. Just make sure you have an adequate power supply (400watt+)...

Start with this link: There are 6 pages of AGP cards here
Any one of these will work in your board. AGP8x.
I prefer the XFX's because they carry a Lifetime Warranty!
Cards that list DDR2 are very fast & DDR3's are even faster.
