Hello there, I will be your technician today. My name is Norman-Wynne Damstra.
Welcome to Fixya!
On the rear of the mainboard, called the Input/Output or I/O you will find a blue VGA port, this is your on-board graphics adaptor/graphics card. Therefore you may use this port to connect your monitor to.
Alternatively if you are looking for a graphics card to fit your computer mainboard, you will need to install one that uses the PCI slot. That is the White slot. You may install the graphics card in any of the three available PCI slots.
You could contact your computer store and ask them if they have a PCI graphics card, or search E-bay or the like for a PCI graphics card. Brands by Nvidia or AMD/ATI radeon will work. A Nvidia Geforce 5200 or 5500 may do the trick, usually 128mb versions.
HI If you take out the graphics card and use the onboard graphics card does the pc power up then? Also have you tried another graphics card on that pc? if it still does not work then it could be the pci-express port that is faulty.
You must enter the bios menu and set the video controller to boot to the PCIe first. Save and exit the bios. The proper orders when installing a PCI-E card is as follows; before you install you’re new video card onto the motherboard. Install the graphics cards software. Than shut down the system. Install the video card. Boot system and enter the bios menu. Go to and open Advance. Open North Bridge Configuration See page 4-23 in manual. Internal Graphics Adapter should be set to [PEG/PCI] Internal Graphics Mode Select should be set to [Disabled] PEG Port Control set to [Auto] Save you're changes and exit the bios. You should be able to boot to you're PCI-E graphics card now.
Well, any GPU with pci expess will be compatible thit that mobo of your.
Its not easy to recomend any specific, it all depends of what you needs are.
Just make sure that the card you upgrade with is for an pci express slot.
A verry good GPU coast around 150-200 euros, a top GPU card cost 400-600 euros
There are ATI cards and there are Nvidia cards, both will suit with your MoBo as long as they are for pci express.
The board should recognise this card ,however connect card with pc off and reset your cmos jmper hold for few seconds or take battery out,replace boot up get into bios ,normally delete button,reset your time and date and save try reboot
Hi shuter. Your Asus P5RD1-VM has an integrated video adapter ATI® Radeon 9600 GPU. You need to enter your bios & change the video start up order. Pg.2-22 in your manual.
Configuration options: [IGD] [PEG/IGD] [PCI/IGD]
Boot Graphics Adapter Priority [PEG/IGD]
Save & exit. Check system at boot up for correct memory count.
