e800, is 18 years old now. wow, old as the hills or dirt. (like me)
not one video card stated, by you, name and numbers, wow.'
welcome to PCI express, PCI died long long ago.
but wait there is none this 18 year old server.... sorry, no express.
the e800 has 7 slots (ivory /white) all PCI of 2 types (legacy)
here are the proper names.
lets read the manual together, easy no, read?
but wait e800s are not express at all, period.
it has 5 32bit slots and 2 64 bit slots, (non PCI express)
page 19 (pdf) showsslots 1 to 4 are primary slots.
see those slot notices, those tell volts and bits.
this is legacy rules 18 year ago. and tricky interrupt rules max.
' a pentium 3 inside, what fossil. that is.
slots are limited to 33MHz.
(read slow as heck, gamer are you ,sorry this is bad fish)
watch out for code 021 errors. PCI
see page 96 (pdf page) see your card slot ID's there?
the big problem on any server, (its no workstation pC)
is video cards. added, later.
the stock VGA chip does 1600x1200? did it go bad?
the stock VGA card was a ATI RAGE XL
i guess lost , missing or dead. sure.
if still good? RAGE?
why is that not good enough(no usage application stated)
hint it will never do gaming at all, hint $60 games! in fact horrid.
the spec, book says some had a built in XVGA port.
does yours? on board?
a free manual. read how jumper and DIP switches work.!
the 1st 4 slots, left side are 5v slots
, not 3.3v.
but dual voltage PCI cards work in both type slots.
slots long, are 64bit 5v slots, not 3.3v
but again dual 64bit work 3.3/5v dual cards.
is this dead? please tell what you have here.
now I will toss coins for you.
1: is the RTC coin cell battery good. (pun yes) page 81 in manual
2: The XVGA jack above is dead. so owner wants to add a PCI card.
3: the old manual hints at dual video cards but fail to say how.
my guess is that the two, 64bit slots are in fact for this dual VGA.
SO buy one. card here, and try it,
it will cost more than the PC is worth for sure.
do not buy :
- Express cards, useless
- do not buy AGP cards, again, useless. straight gold finders yes. funny ones NO.
- 64bit PCI is it. 5volt only or dual voltage.
- do not buy 3.3v only cards, vast types sold..even used, vast.
the demand for such card today is near ZERO.
so are rare, now, and scalpers love to feed the rare folks needs, bingo.
so lets do newegg, as they have check box for PCI only
is why, few do that .
here are the players.
no hits, all are 3.3v, (3.3v means quasi modern)
5v cards are relics, 3 notch cars, are dual voltatge
and missing here.
sorry I cant find one here.
lets try scalper.bay. (I FAILED HERE TOO)
the problem is your mobo is not dual voltage mobo a very serous limitation in 2018 , no?
in fact most seller there are clueless that 64bit + 5v exists.
tons of agp and express and 3.3v there. only
id get a real MOBO, for sure.
here is the magic rule on old slots. here
right side 2nd one down, bingo 5v mobo.
