Sorry but I am confused. You connected to the graphics card when it was in your machine and it did not function? Or was your monitor connected to motherboard display port? Have to ask.If a PCIEcard is in the PCIE port then onboard video is cut off.The signal only comes from the card. The card should work fine on that motherboard as long as the the card and slot are compatible, are they both PCIE 2,or 2.1 or 3.0
Its possible that your video card is not compatible with your motherboard. Yes, this sometimes happens, the board manufacturer needs to update their BIOS if this kinds of things happen. Another possibility is that you have a bad graphics card. If its Brand new then its probably a lemon. Go to your friends house and test your graphics card and see if it works. This would isolate the problem.
1. Turn your computer off.
2. Disconnect the AC power-cord.
3. Remove the side-panel that is *NOT* closest to the keyboard/mouse connectors.
4. Unscrew the spine of the "old" video-card, and remove it.
5. Measure the distance between the "spine" of the video-card and the first of the gold-pins on the connector on the video-card.
6. Compare this distance with the "empty" slots on the motherboard,
to find a match.
7. Insert the new video-card, pushing until it is firmly seated.
If it does not seat, the video-card that you purchased is *NOT* compatible with the slot on the motherboard. Stop, and re-insert the old video-card, and re-assess the situation.
Yes, the DFI AK75-AL motherboard has a VIA KT-133A chipset which is compatible with a FX5200 videocard, but not at the full 8x AGP speed (as the videocards supports) but only at 4x AGP speed (maximum speed supported by the motherboard).
PS: Make sure you use the newest motherboard BIOS en VIA chipset drivers to ensure compability.
Not on this motherboard, and not with two different video cards. Your motherboard does have two PCI-E slots at x1 speed, but only one slot at x16 speed. And when you use SLI you should use two identical video cards for best results.
If your mobo wasn't compatible with your video card, you wouldn't get a screen at all. Yes upgrade your directx to 10 and yes upgrade your power supply to a 650Watt or greater. The problem is most likely that you have a low wattage PSU and when your vcard request more power to run higher graphic games than the Windows Interface, your computer shuts down because it doesn't have enough power to give.
