GA-8I915PL-G PCIe x1 Slot Issues

Hi, We have a PCIe x1 Controller Card, that does not come up in PCIe x1 Slots (both slots) on this motherboard. We find that we dont see that the PLL does not lock. It may be cause of the clock is not there or the clock is not clean. However, the same card comes up on x16 slot on the same motherboard. Any help on this is appreciated. Regards, Purna

New motherboard GA-p67x-ud3-b3 no video on boot

  1. 1 x PCI Express x16 slot, running at x16 (PCIEX16)
    * For optimum performance, if only one PCI Express graphics card is to be installed, be sure to install it in the PCIEX16 slot.
  2. 1 x PCI Express x16 slot, running at x8 (PCIEX8)
    * The PCIEX8 slot shares bandwidth with the PCIEX16 slot. When the PCIEX8 slot is populated, the PCIEX16 slot will operate at up to x8 mode.
  3. 3 x PCI Express x1 slots
    (All PCI Express slots conform to PCI Express 2.0 standard.)
  4. 2 x PCI slots

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.

Whart can i do with my mother board no display

Do you mean that the onboard video isn't working? The motherboard has a PCIe x1 slot and 2 PCI slots so you can purchase an aftermarket video card to get around your problem.

I need help choosing a video card - part 2

PCI is the older, slower format, PCIe is newer and faster, but your system MUST support PCIe or it won't work.
So easy option is to find if your system supports PCIe and then get whichever is suitable.

I need help choosing a video card.

Hi there.
Any PCI Express card will do as long as its DDR2, DDR3 is not supported by your motherboard.
You have a choice between ATI or Nvidia graphics cards and your system should support up to 1GB of graphics memory.

Good luck and thanks for using FixYa!!

AGP card support

Hi, Unfortunately no AGP slot nor PCI-E. The Gigabyte GA-8I845GV motherboard has only 3 Expansion Slots and all of the are PCI (33MHz & PCI 2.2 compliantt). From their website, here's an image of the motherboard It has a built-in Intel® Extreme Graphics Engine (845GV chipset) for video with max of 128 mb shared memory. Should you wish to install an add-on 3rd party PCI video card, Inno3D FX5500 256ddr PCI slot tv-dvi are still available (at least in my location) for an equivalent of about 3.5K INR (80USD+). Hope this gives you an idea. Good luck and kind regards.
