    Okay, if the system doesn't post there's something else happening. Either you reset a frequency and it fried your system or you reset a frequency and need to reset the CMOS. If the system doesn't POST either the PCI slot you're using is broken or the video card using the slot has some form of problem.

    So, give a CMOS reset a try and see how it turns out.

    What are you trying to configure? Are you trying to tell the motherboard that your primary graphics device is seated in a PCI slot or are you attempting to do something else?

Hey,

1 long 2 short is video card failure.

if you had a pci slot card inserted in the agp slot and you powered on, the motherboard may be damaged.

Yes, it is compatible, just that you must first uninstall the previous video driver, then configure the BIOS to route the video signal to the PCI and not the AGP and only then install the new card. And in the end it will behave worse than the previous AGP card you got because the PCI interface is way slower than the AGP.
Just buy a good AGP card, PCI cards are made for office pc's in which the onboard one is totally obsolete.

I`ve just bought a graphics card and i am struggling to install it in the mother board


hi this sounds like you may have bought the wrong type of graphics card for your motherboard, depending on the age of your motherboard they have changed over from AGP to PCI-e or even ePCI-e now if you have a slot that looks just like a PCI expansion slot at the top on its own away from the other ones, this will indicate a PCI-e or ePCI-e slot, if you have a brown slot at the top of the other ones this will be a AGP slot, just in case you have the right card, for the right slot, there is a locking clip at the end of the AGP slot that you have to pull to one side to put it in check to see if this is the case, then just do that.........hope this helps

One long beep tow short beep


One long beep and two short beeps mean faulty video adapter.

If you are using a card, like a PCI or AGP video adapter then remove and put back the card in slot.

If you have a motherboard, then the video chipset on motherboard had gone, buy an agp video adapter and insert it in the slot inside your computer to fix the problem.

below an example of PCI and AGP video card:

MSI G4MX4000-T64 64 MB Graphics Card

HP Intel DVI AGP digital display card

ATI Rage 128 Pro 32 MB PCI Graphics Card

Ati radeon 9550 agp with pinnacle pctv hd problem please help


Try to put it on another pci slot. if you are using the one right under the agp, then that is your culprit.  the agp and the top pci slot share video resources.  just put it on another pci slot, if you have to swap another non-video related card to the one just beneath the agp slot.  Hope this helps.

Converting from agp to pci screen does not load


If the original configuration was an integrated graphics setup, then the BIOS needs to be changed to AGP or PCI slot.

No display at post


There are a few things that can cause no display on the monitor.
That single beep means POST = Power On Self Test. Post has tested everything on you're board to be good.
The cable between video card & monitor may be bad or not connected correctly (Swap out the cable as last resort).
2. You're monitor is defective, try swapping it with known working monitor.
3. You're video card is not functioning.
Lastly, when you reset the system cmos/bios everything went back to default. This means you're bios is now using the onboard PCI video graphics. Remove you're radeon 9600 video card. Try booting the system. You should see display again. The only way to test you're radeon would be to boot to the bios & set bios to boot using the AGP radeon. You need to change Init Display First to AGP & not PCI. If you loose video than you know you're AGP card is bad. Reset the cmos/bios before adding another AGP card or you will not get display. This setting is on pg 3-5. Integrated Peripherals. If you need you're manual you can download it from this link: http://www.abit.com.tw/page/en/motherboard/motherboard_detail.php?pMODEL_NAME=NF7-S2G&fMTYPE=Socket+A

Good Luck!

Tried To Install New Card, monitor not responding.


Tech is suggesting that you pressed too hard while switching back & forth & may have hurt the motherboard by bending it. This a common problem. I can only suggest that remove your old card & clean the PCI slot with canned air. Carefully reseat the old card pressing evenly downwards till the card is seated. Use a flashlight & check where the card connects to the slot. It should be level across the PCI slot. Do this while the power cord is unpluged from the PC. Plug the power back in & start the PC.
Some video cards require extra power. Your newer card may need a four pin power connector to run. Please check the instructions that came with the RADEON X1300.

Problem with installation of Chaintech FX5200 P-FX20 256MB PCI


You got the names wrong, there is no PCI version of the FX5200, therefore it is AGP or PCI Express only.(doubt the later) Now asuming you havent forced the card into the wrong slot, take the modem out. Check in the BIOS at bootup if the machine has an onboard graphics card, disable that or set to boot the AGP or PCIXpress. Then manual IRQ settings. Set those to AUTO. There is a rule to PCI cards (really doubt yours is) to ALWAYS put a graphics card into the 1st PCI port on the board, most boards have labels, manual has it for sure. It will aslo say if and which pci port shares its IRQ (interrupt request) with what device on the mainboard - that conflict causes some strange things to happen later in windows... Then boot to safe mode. If it boots, check device manager for duplicate devices. delete every duplicate and reboot. Most likely it is just windows going nutz, unless there was some PCI / AGP, force insertion magic or you forgot to unplugg the power cord and the mainboard was live and had suffered some damage while changing the cards... More details would help, hope this will be of any use m8. Good luck!
