Hi rohit1987,

The XFX NVIDIA GeForce 8600 GT 256MB DDR3 PCI Express card uses two DVI ports on the back of the card. Display is most likely coming from the second port. Try moving your monitor cable to the next DVI port. You can do this while your system is running.
If you still do not receive display, post that here & we'll go over some other possibilities.

Good luck rohit1987!
Thank you for using fixya.

    Hi rohit1987, from time to time when you add a new device (In your case a new video card), at boot up the cmos may want you to enter the bios. (Even though everything is at default setting).

    The bios saw the new graphics card. This doesn't always happen for everyone. In such cases you can try clearing the bios jumper, wait ten seconds & move the bios jumper back to normal. At boot up enter your bios & re-check all your settings. Save & exit. This should stop the request to enter bios at every boot-up. Below is the link to Asus. Once the link is opened, type your model number in their search window, P5LD2-VM located in the upper right hand corner & click on the white arrow;

    http://support.asus.com/download/downloa...

    Another window will open. From the list of MB's click on;

    P5LD2-VM related files for download. Another window will open & here you'll click the dropdown menu & choose your operating system. There is a ton of information & FAQ's listed on Asus web site.



    Thank you for your vote rohit1987!

INSTALLING GRAPHIC CARD 9500GT ON ASUS P5LD2-VM R1


Hi,
First of all is this a new graphics card? If it is take the card out of the PCI Express slot, get a clean, dry, soft paintbrush and clean the PCI Express slot, then blow on the slot to remove any residual dust.
Make sure the brass contacts on the card are clean and then reinsert the card, make sure it clips into place properly and you secure the card with the screw at the back of the computer, then try booting the machine.

If you bought the card second hand then there is a possibility that the card is faulty.
Luckily for you i now a way to bring a dead graphics card back to life but you do it at your own risk.

Let me know how you get on and good luck.

Installation problem with vista


Do you have an onboard graphic slot too . you could remove the XFX card for now . Install all other drivers on Vista first and then try your card again. Just try and single out the problem. Does the driver cd come with vista drivers ???

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.
http://support.asus.com/download/download.aspx?modelname=P5PE-VM&SLanguage=en-us

I hope you find this helpful.

Boot Graphics Adapter Priority [PEG/IGD]
Save & exit. Check system at boot up for correct memory count.

Yes, your mobo Asus P5LD2-VM support CPUs with Conroe-core ("Core 2 Duo"). http://support.asus.com/cpusupport/cpusupport.aspx?SLanguage=en-us&model=P5LD2-VM But for new CPUs strongly recommended use last BIOS version - 1401 from 2007/08/14. http://dlsvr01.asus.com/pub/ASUS/mb/socket775/P5LD2-VM/P5LD2-VM-1401.rar
