Question about Connect3D : RADEON 9600 128MB TV-out DVI AGP Video Card Graphic Card
My problem was when i bought an ati radeon 9600 128mb. windows detect it as "sis315 vga (internal) 16mb" i cant install catalist drivers & my mainboard have not an vga integrated.
The SIS315 is an integrated video card which uses shared RAM in order to work. Most mainboards will automatically turn off the integrated card as soon as an AGP or PCI-e card is installed. Yours may not do this, or maybe the card just needs re-seating as it is not picking it up correctly.
First you need to double check to make sure the new card is firmly in the slot (this is a common problem that is often overlooked) re-seat card and push it firmly and evenly into the slot. Next, on start-up, go into BIOS and make sure all on-board video is disabled. Save and then restart as normal, hopefully it will see your new card and then be looking for the drivers.
It is possible that the BIOS has your on-board video set on auto, which would mean if no other card is present then the PC would automatically go back to on-board video. Which means it can't see your new card, which in turn means it is either not installed properly or it is faulty.
Just out of interest, it may seem a stupid question but you have plugged your monitor cable into your new card and not the on-board socket?
As always much more info is needed for more help
