    I have a pcchips a13G+ motherboard with a 350 watt power supply & 4 gig of ram.

  • frank_carole Feb 11, 2009

    The specs for the card say a 300 W supply is needed so I should be OK there.

    I did change the setting in the bios. I do have the latest drivers for both the motherboard and the video card. AS for not working right. The colors of the text in the bios screens are screwed up, as well as during the post. Instead of white text I get purple, yellow,etc. Then when windows boots it gets part way and I get a blue screen saying a serious error has been detected and windows has timed out while trying to reset the video card, then the computer shuts down.

    Tell me more about the problem with the 8500. Did you change the setting in the Bios to use the card instead of the onboard video? Did you get the latest drivers for the motherboard? Did you get the latest drivers for the video card? When you say it doesn't work properly, in what way?

It could be that the card is bad. If you can exchange it, I would and see if the replacement works.

If you have it in the proper pci express slot and it malfunctioning, it may be your power core unable to power the card. check your power supply to see if the wattage is enough to run this card.

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

Hi, Have a Acer Veriton M464, fully up to date Bios, Chip, the works. Bought a nice cheap graphics card to mess around with "XFX nVidia GeForce 8500GT" Inserted into my PCI slot, Vista won't detect it,...


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.

I hope this helps. Have a nice day.

How do i install the asus geforce 8500gt 5189-2509?

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.

I want to use two Graphics card in single motherboard

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.
