Go into your BIOS and enable the PCI Express slot. Then also make sure your Video Card does not need a power plug into it. If it does, check the extra cables from your power supply for the proper connection and hook it to the video card.

    Well, from the looks and sounds of it, one of two things is going on. If you have made sure that the PCIE Bus is enabled and set to first boot, and you have made sure there is no need for an external Power source for the vid cards, then either you have 1 bad motherboard or 2 bad video cards. 


    Have you tested the cards in another system? Do you know that they are working?


    If so, I would suggest you get a replacement motherboard. 


    *Upon further investigation..* That board should come ready to boot off PciE. So I would suggest it is likely you have a faulty board.

    Ok,, so your other card is a PCI Express card as well? And it works on that board. The other two cards are also PCI Express and do not work on that board, but DO work on another board? Is this correct?


    What is the model of the working card? What is the exact model of the two non working cards?

    Hmmm. Well the two you are trying to install to it are the same chipset as the onboard card. If you install one of them and boot off of the onboard card, is the card in the PciE slot seen in your device manager?

    Also, What brand and size RAM and what CPU are you using.

    It must be an incompatibility then with the chipset. The chipset on the 2 video cards you can't use are the same as the onboard graphics chipset. Same family... 7 Series. I would suggest you move up to an 8 or 9 series video card to solve this issue.

    You can call AsusTek if you wish to verify this incompatibility, but I suspect that is the issue. You could also try loading the newest BIOS file to your board, to see if they solved this problem in a later revision. However, there is no mention of a fix in the BIOS updates.

    No problem and glad I could help. I hope all works out well for you.

Hi. This is usually an indication of overheating. Make sure the fan on the graphics card is not blocked. Clean out any dust in your system and ensure adequate air flow across the CPU and the graphics card.

I would first check BIOS and disable Onboard video (if applicable) and then make sure that graphics port is set for PCI-e and not PCI or pci-e 1x or something.

Check that first. And make sure that card is all the way plugged in. You won't believe how many people don't plug it in all the way.

Hi Anli!

Well, any GPU with pci expess will be compatible thit that mobo of your.

Its not easy to recomend any specific, it all depends of what you needs are.

Just make sure that the card you upgrade with is for an pci express slot.
A verry good GPU coast around 150-200 euros, a top GPU card cost 400-600 euros
There are ATI cards and there are Nvidia cards, both will suit with your MoBo as long as they are for pci express.

Good luck with your new card M8!

P4VMM2 - what graphic card to use?


Hi,

Any current brand/model of an AGP video card would work with this motherboard (NVidia or ATI). The only limiting factor would be how much you would want to spend for it.

Not a preference but an observation dito sa tin, mas matagal buhay ng ATI compared sa NVidia.

Hope this be of some help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.
