Uninstall the device from device manager. Get the latest driver for the product from the particular website. Connect the hardware now. Install the drivers for that particular harware. It will work perfectly then. Follow the above for both the products errors.
ok hmmmm maybe it only except 4x agp? is it very old? maybe the slot maybe burned out? do you have enough power source to run the card? i cant think of anything else.. good luck. my agp card did the same thing when the power source burned out. some day i would get nice veiw someday a dark screen. i though restarting would help and eventually the power source burned out.
Hi, Chances are good that your third 1gig memory module is faulty. Windows blue screen of death at startup is a typical symptom of faulty RAM memory. Try replacing the third 1gig DIMM with another of the same type. Let me know if this works or not. Regards, Graemevm
Try the following : Go into the setup routine using the onboard video. Go to the Intergrated Peripherals. Find the onboard video and change it to disable. Save changes. Change monitor to the AGP card. I hope this helps.
The MSI KT4V motherboard is an AGP board supporting 4x/8x AGP. You cannot use a newer PCI-Express Video Card, however an Nvidia GeForce FX 5500 either PCI or AGP will run just fine in it. The NVidia FX 5500 doesn't come in PCI-E. Additionally The ATI Radeon 9550 doesn't come PCI-E so you should be safe with AGP versions of either. I should note however, that you'll get better performance out of the ATI Radeon 9550 as opposed to the NVidia FX 5500.
Your motherboard have an AGP 4X port, you can easy upgrade whit that card since it is an APG-card. Not sure tough that your motherboard can handle all that DDR3 power witch come with the card but im sure u will notice a big improvment.
I think that a cheaper card with 512 Mb DDR2 will give u the same results.
That motherboard and videa card connect using the AGP standard so you are quite limited to what video cards you can get without upgrading the entire system. Also, since your system is that old getting a modern graphics card will not help much as the processor (CPU) will limit it greatly.
nVidia has not released an AGP card in a few generations but they did have some back with the 7600 AGP. ATI released an AGP version of it's last generation of cards with the HD3850.
I personally think you are wasting your money and should consider upgrading your entire system if you are planning an playing any games. I would suggest getting the cheapest AGP video card you can find say a GeForce 6200 or Radeon X1550. Don't spend more than $50 or $60.
Remember that it must be AGP to fit on your motherboard. Another thing to consider is that any AGP video card you buy for you current system will not work in any new computer.
Problem is you need to install Vista which support 4Gb! Look for specification on Vista you have!! Mostly XP and Vista support 2Gb! The problem is in your OS. 32 OS support max 2Gb of ram they detect you 3gb but they couldn't operate with all!!
The beeps you heard, 1 long two short is the bios telling you that there is a problem with your video card. Normally you would remove & reseat it. Not the case with the intergrated video. When you added an AGP card you should have been able to get video. All video is controlled by the intergrated video controller. If your sure the radeon works than all that is left is the mb controller which can't be fixed. There is a slim chance you might get a PCI video card to work.
