Yes it is possible to still plug-in an expansion video card. The 256MB limit is for the shared memory if you will be using your integrated Video Card. You can ignore it once you plug in the new video card.
With internal video cards they normally automatically switch to PCI video cards that you put in without the need for switches or settings on the board. Just plug in the card and plug in the monitor on the card and you should be good. now if your board is one of the select few that require a change in the BIOS then you are out of luck. BUT, take note that 90% of the time that internal video cards do not work because of the memory. Take note that the memory that the internal video cards use is the memory on the board so you might want to check if your memory is working.
carthi, I do not think the problem your having currently has anything to do with your memory. If your video card was integrated into the board I might agree there could be a problem with your memory but that is not true. Your video card is an AGP8x device. Black & red colored lines can be produced from either a bad monitor or a bad video card. Your K8S-MX motherboard can not run DDR1 ( unless you mean that slot 1 DIMM you replaced). Your board only supports, 2x184-pin DDR DIMM sockets for up to 2GB non-ECC PC3200 / PC2700 /PC1600 DDR DIMM's.
No video display suggests your video card may be going bad or monitor is going bad. To prove this concept, please temporally switch your monitor with a monitor you know functions correctly. If you can not temporally switch your monitor with someone else than replace your AGP8x video card. You can find up to six pages of AGP8x video cards listed at the link below. http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/category/category_slc.asp?CatId=318&
The XFX cards carry Lifetime Warranty. If you find you have more questions feel free to ask.
Firstly your motherboard doesn't have video capabilities built in so you have an addon video card.
I doubt there's any problem with the board as it's jumperless and you can't have the CPU settings wrong.
Are you getting any beeps when you switch on? The length and number of beeps can tell you where the problem is. The usual problem with no video is either a memory problem or video card problem. If you can borrow another video card try it. Make sure the plug is correctly inserted all the way in and make sure the video card is properly seated in it's slot. I assume you're using the 4x AGP slot. Remove that and try another ot even a PCI card in the PCI slots. You may then get a picture.
Actually apart from finding it hard to figure out your actual problem it's very hard to diagnose a fault from the little you've told me.
Certainly the motherboard can be faulty and you won't get video but it's the video card you should be looking at first. Have you turned the monitor on and plugged it in?
