Question about Intel D915GAG Motherboard

1 Answer

External PCI Express Video Card

I tried to install a PCI Express 16X video card. The Bios automatically detects it and it goes through the Windows initial boot-up screen. However, just before it switches to the blue Welcome screen, the system does a screen dump and reboots itself continuously. It is also impossible to see the error messages from the screen dump because it occurs so quickly. I have updated the BIOS, the chipset drivers and video accelerator drivers. I have uninstalled the Graphics Video Accelerator drivers and the Chipset drivers to no avail. However, if I go into Safe Mode, I can boot into Windows with the graphics card (obviously with standard VGA mode). I have tried several other PCI Graphics cards and the same symptoms occur. Any suggestions?

Does the motherboard have integrated video? If so, you'll need to disable this (unless its a Dell or something that supports both integrated and add-on, for increased performance..). I'd check the IRQ's and component resources to make sure there isn't a resource conflict (done in safe mode of course).

Restart your computer and then press and hold F8 keys until you get Advanced Options menu screen.Use the arrow key to highlight Safe Mode, and then press Enter, your computer will boot automatically to safe mode.
If you able to start in the safe mode then Scan your computer for viruses. Some viruses can cause a black Screen , especially ones that infect the master boot record (MBR) or boot sector.
Update drivers for your hardware. black Screens are hardware or driver related so updated drivers could fix the cause of the STOP error.
Return BIOS settings to their default levels. An overclocked or misconfigured BIOS can cause all sorts of random issues, including black screen.
If it didn't helps you then simply get the system utility program like PC Fresher that will fix windows errors that cause of black screen screen

My ATI firepro V7800 makes continuous beeping noise. PC does not boot when I turn it on.....pls help!!!


1) Believe the continuous beeping you hear is a BIOS Beep Code, stating you have a graphics problem. Computer, not video card, is beeping.

2) Do you have the external 6-pin PCI-Express power cable plugged into the graphics card, from the Power Supply?

3) IF, your Power Supply does not have a 6-pin PCI-Express power cable, are you using TWO 4-pin Peripheral power cables, connected to a 6-pin PCI-Express adapter power cable?

To wit;

6-pin PCI-Express power cable example, and also showing a 6-pin PCI-Express adapter power cable on the right,

http://www.playtool.com/pages/psuconnectors/connectors.html#pciexpress

Example of a 4-pin Peripheral power cable,
(Misnomered by many as a 'Molex' power cable. Molex was the first company to make that type of connector. The name stuck, kind of like calling an adjustable open-end wrench a Crescent wrench),

http://www.playtool.com/pages/psuconnectors/connectors.html#peripheral

Note the color code of the wires used in a 4-pin Peripheral power cable, and a 6-pin PCI-Express power cable.

Red = 5 Volt wire
Yellow = 12 Volt wire
(All are DC Voltage)
Black = Ground wire. (ALL Black wires are Ground wires)

The 4-pin Peripheral power cable has ONE Yellow 12 Volt wire.
The 6-pin PCI-Express power cable has TWO Yellow 12 Volt wires.

The most power that a PCI-Express x16 expansion slot can deliver, is 75 Watts.

http://www.playtool.com/pages/psuconnectors/connectors.html#pciexpress

"This cable is used to provide extra 12 volt power to PCI Express expansion cards. PCI Express motherboard slots can provide a maximum of 75 watts."

http://www.playtool.com/pages/psuconnectors/connectors.html#pciexpress8

"The older 6 pin version officially provides a maximum of 75 watts (although unofficially it can usually provide much more)"


The ATI FirePro V7800 graphics card requires 150 Watts by itself.

The PCI-Express x16 expansion slot CANNOT deliver the recommended power (Wattage) needed, therefore an external power cable capable of delivering 75 Watts is needed.

What happens if you just use ONE 4-pin Peripheral power cable, in a 6-pin PCI-Express adapter power cable?

The PCI-Express x16 expansion slot contact pins -> BURN

The gold plated contact pins on the bottom of the graphics card -
BURN

The connection on the graphics card for the 6-pin PCI-Express power cable - BURNS

The contact pins in the 6-pin PCI-Express adapter power cable -
BURN

If it is too bad, and cannot be remedied by cleaning, the motherboard is TOAST, and so is the graphics card.

Randomly lost display on my pc.. and its not a faulty card.


Try to set your PCI-E card as a first one in BIOS. There also should be an option to turn off onboard video.

Unexpectedly lost graphics, but theres a story to the issue.


You mentioned that you disabled the on-board graphics card using the device mamager.
You should disable the on-board video card in the BIOS.
Go to the BIOS config and disable the Video.

Pci express slot


Hi dineshcs.
When adding a new graphics card (Your's being a PCI-Express), you must change a bios setting under the title " Advanced " section. Open you're M2N-MX manual & turn to page 2-21. You need to change the boot order for you're graphics to list,
[PEG/PCI]. Change Initiate Graphic Mode Select to [Disable].
These changes stop the onboard graphics card from loading & allow the PCI-Express card to load. The issue of possible motherboard overheating can be caused by many things. Here is a list of things to check.
1). Check the CPU heat-sink fan. Make sure the fan blades are
free from dust build up. Check fan speed in bios (Its RPM will be listed). It should be running a min of 2300 RPM.
2). Also in the bios is Hardware monitor. By booting into the bios go to this & watch the temp of CPU & motherboard. If either is getting too hot suggest you add a side case 3" fan to the system to help lower the CPU & motherboard temp.

Good Luck!
