Question about ASUS P5PE-VM Motherboard

1 Answer

P5PE-VM with Win7 has no display on PCI video cards-EVGA 2600 or EVGA gt 220. Both cards ran fine with Win XP. What do I need to do?

With Win XP both video cards (tested each separately) loaded drivers and ran fine. Upgraded to Win 7 and PCI video cards have no output-black screens. Switch cable back to on-board video and it displays. Video drivers for PCI cards load fine and Win 7 shows each card is present and running properly, but no display. Unloaded on-board driver, installed card and rebooted. Both video cards a known good, 2600 is new.

    Also, the EVGA Geforce 2600 PCI supports Win 7 and has a driver 306.97 that says so.The GT 220 is an even better card that was running on my other Win 7 system before I removed it to test with.With either card installed, Device Manager says it is functioning properly. Just no output on the cards standard video output. Makes me think Win 7 talks to the PCI bus differently than Win XP did.

    The following first response didn't post: Hi Hans. Thank you for the reply. Sorry I should have said in my post I'm running Win 7 32-bit. Both cards have Win 7 driver support, and actually use the same EVGA driver package - 306.97.I had a choice between PCI and AGP 8X, but I thought the PCI would be better. Maybe I made a mistake for this old mobo?

    I FOUND IT!!!! Just a BIOS setting. In the hope that this helps someone else: With Geforce 6200 in PCI slot 2 I had no display. Put display connector on the onboard VGA connector.Booted and pressed DEL to get into BIOS. Under Advanced, Chipset, Graphics Adapter Priority change the default (AGP/Int-VGA) to PCI/Int-VGA. Rebooted and display went black. Moved display connector to 2600 VGA output and the Window 7 display was there. In Device Manager there is only the 2600, the VGA isn't even there. Ran EVGA driver 306.97 setup (downloaded package from EVGA) and new driver installed normally. MY GUESS? Win XP somehow ignores the BIOS setting and finds the 2600 in the PCI slot, while Windows 7 obeys it and looks for AGP and Int VGa so misses a PCI adapter. Mobouser guide I have is page 2-19. Good luck everyone and thank you for the help.

    P.S. I could probably move the 2600 to PCI slot 1 and go through the install again. However......I'm too chicken. Old maintenance axiom: If it ain't broke, don't fix it. Good luck.

    P.P.S. Also, I did NOT upgrade my BIOS, and I think it's pretty old. Looks like version 1201,Build Date 11/23/06. I'd try the BIOS setting change first before messing with BIOS upgrade.

Hello here is the mainboards homepage:

Are you running 32 or 64 bit system ???

Make sure the video driver supports windows 7, 32 or 64 bit.

The video card can sure run fine on windows xp but not in windows 7 as it is a totaly different system.

The mainboard has a 1 x AGP 8X slot.

So now you maybe has to find a video card that supports windows 7

Try also to download a manual.

Good luck

SOURCE: can i install pci video card in my p5pe-vm board ?

You could by why would you?  Even your " on board" graphics are faster that an PCI video card would be. You have a AGP 8 slot. Look for a really good AGP 8 video card. That should get you where you want to go. It will not be as fast as a PCIe16 card but you do not have that option nor slot of *********** board. 
Below is the ASUS link to your board.

SOURCE: hi can i install evga gforce 9500 gt video card

Yes, it will work just fine. Just make sure you uninstall the drivers of the embedded one before installing the new one and you disable it from the BIOS immediately after.

I have upgraded XP to Win 7 and a ASUS P5PE-VM with Intel 865G chipset --cannot get a driver for 1440x900 Monitor --Can you help please

Sad to say but the Intel 865G does not have any available drivers for Windows 7. If you are using a desktop, try installing an expansion video card.

Hope this info helps.

Please give me advice on how to download asus p5pe-vm built in video card

Use the link provided below;
For Win XP there is a separate driver. For other operating systems the driver software for the integrated video driver is in-bedded within the Chip-set driver. For these you'll need to download and install the Chip-set driver software.

PCI video card on my P5PE ASUS motherboard

Your motherboard is equipped with an AGP slot, you would want to use this to add a video card, but first you must go into the BIOS and disable the on board video graphics chip so you can utilize an external video card. This will make your pc faster because of the independent processes and memory the card will have on its own, not needing the pc's memory to run, thus taking away from system resources. Take a look at these:

Listed find the low, medium and high ranges of video cards. I hope this helps.

Graphics card problem

Hi rovin,
So you bought an XFX GeForce 256MB video card. You're board has 1 free AGP 8x video slot & 3 PCI (White opened slots).
You mention there is not slot for the new card. (What type of video card did you buy)? PCI-E, AGP or PCI?
The only slot you're board does not have is a PCI-Express.
Look in you're manual on page 1-7 for the location of the AGP video card slot.
94565e6.jpg If you bought the wrong card, exchange it for an AGP 8x or PCI.
The ASUS P5PE-VM uses a integrated Intel® 865G chipset with integrated Intel® Extreme Graphics 2 Technology, which uses you're system memory to function.
If you need a manual you can download it from Asus. Click on the link to open to the P5PE-VM download site.

I hope you find this helpful.

The Evga 7600GT is a AGP, you can't use this.
The ATI 2600 XT is only warranted for 1yr.
The EVGA 8600GT 256Mb is a Limited Lifetime. If only these three than the 8600GT Would be best.
Suggest you look here too.
