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).

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.

My display is white. I have a pci express slot open can I add a pci express video card to solve the problem?


The monitor may be faulty and not the video card, try a different monitor first to determine if the video card is faulty.
If the video card is faulty then install a video card in the PCI express expansion slot. You may have to turn off the on-board video card in the BIOS.

Is a radeon HD 4350 video card compatable with the c6537 e machine desktop


It should be compatible. It is a PCI express 16x video card that you are asking about and your system should have came with a nVidia G-Force 6100 installed in the PCI express 16x slot. After you swap out the video cards, you will want to download the latest Catalyst software from ATI/AMD. Once this is done and you have restarted your PC by requirement of installing the video software, you will want to uninstall the nVidia software via add/remove programs, just to avoid possible conflict.

Installing external graphics card in 945_gcnl


you have a PCI express slot, the topmost slot, made for a internal 16X PCI-E video card built into the motherboard. Installing it will require you to remove the case or side of the computer (usually two phillips head screws) and inserting the card into the PCI-E slot, adding any extra power connector if needed , then installing the software drivers that come with the video card..------
