Question about HP Compaq d530 PC Desktop
I just bought a LG digital monitor, so to get a digital signal from my d530 CMT I installed a Diablotek XGI Volari V3XT 128MB AGP into the AGP slot on my mobo. Easy I thought. I've got XP Pro SP 3.
Now when I boot up I get a message that's flashed for a few seconds, "110 - Out of Memory Space for Option ROMS. The option ROM for the following device was unable to run due to memory constraints. If you choose to continue, one or more PCI devices may not work properly." Then booting continues normally.
I'm not sure if I'm getting a digital signal at all - I see "Analogue" flashed up on the monitor before that disappears too. And Microsoft Flight Similator seems to run a little jerkily although to me the display seems to have great resolution (which may be due to the 1:10,000 rating of the monitor, nothing to do with the video card).
This was a cheap card - $25 - but the reviews seemed ok. All I wanted was a digital signal good enough for Flight Similator. And thought I had lots of memory.
Can anyone explain what the message means, and what I should do next - trash the video card?
Check the bios of the machine for
1. disable onboard vga when pci is installed
2. look for a setting like
set acpi/usb buffers at top of memory
this setting should be enabled

Have you updated the BIOS? If not, I'd at least do that (to 2.44 Rev A, released in August 2008) to eliminate a BIOS issue.
The OEM PSU (power supply) in the D530 supports up to 240W, which is not much for electronics today. However, a 128Mb card should be OK. If it was a power issue, the overload protection would kick in and the system would shut down. The D530 CMT accepts up to AGP 8x, which this card supports.
This card is not very well rated. Go to Tiger Direct and you'll see that some people had driver issues. http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/SearchTools/item-details.asp?EdpNo=4107596&CatId=28
You might want to visit the Diablotek website and see if there are update drivers available.
One other thing... it may be a pain, but I'd go back to the original graphics card and use the monitor with it first, just to be sure everything works. There may even be some software included with the monitor you'll want to install. At that point, THEN do the update. Never do more than one hardware change at a time... I've learned that the hard way. ;-)
