Check to make sure nothing came lose including you video card. if that doesn't work you might have to reinstall the drivers for your card.

    sorry thought your motherboard had integrated video plugin. if there is another pci slot try plugging the card into that and see what happens. and again i would like to apologize for the mixup.

Detects monitor but no video

Hi there.
Due to Nvidia's architecture limitation, you can only use a maximum of 2 monitors on 1 graphics card. In order to run 3 monitors you will need to SLI your 570 with another 570. This can be extreamly costly.
If you want a cheap route to get a 3rd monitor, use a USB to DVI connection on the third monitor, it's great and cheaper than buying another card if you just want a monitor for basic use and not gaming. If you want to game with it then you're going to have to SLI with another card.

Can i add 2 graphics card in asus P5G41C-M LX ? now i have nvidia GTS 450 graphics card.. plz help.....

Hello there,
*********** board has an Integrated Intel GMA X4500 graphics, maximum shared memory of 1G, it should be automatically disabled if the pcie slot detects a video card but some mother board embedded gpu runs with the pcie card unless disabled in the bios.
Do you have plans on running a SLI (Scalable Link Interface) linking two or more gpu to produce a single output on *********** board. why SLI? because you already hae a GTS 450 GPU but you cant do this configuration because *********** board has a single pcie slot.
If you have plans on running a pci gpu with your GTS 450 it should, but if you encounter any problem try manually assigning IRQ's and resources through the BIOS? I don't have this specific board.

Hopefully this information helps.
Thanks you for using FixYa.

Hi, When I try and run my monitor through my XFX 8600gts graphics card most of the time the monitor wont work, i take it out and plug it into the mother board and all is ok, Rarely it will work through the...

I would suggest you lower your resolution settings from your video card to your monitor. Possibly they are to high for your monitor to handle. Go into control panel to change your settings at a lower rate and see if it runs any better.

I hope this helps you out if so please leave me some feed back.

I have intel-945GM express chipset, and i need to play a game that needs shader model 3 please advice

firstly you need to have a pci express graphics card inorder to play new games. Intel chipsets are NOT for playing games!! You should get at least a Nvidia 8600gts or ati 3650 or similar to game properly- presuming that you have a pci express slot. Be warned that if you get a new graphics card dont go by the series eg, 8 series or 9 series- a 8600gts is better than a 9400gt. A nice graphics card for the money is the nvidia 9600gt. Good luck upgrading

Graphic card will not display a picture or be reconized by the MB

1. whats the brand of the VGA Card ( looking at the model looks to like Asus)

2. when you tested the VGA card at the computer shop did they check it on a another motherboard?

3. any way fixing a VGA card is not possible by any ordinary computer repair shop. best would be to try to locate the local agent in your country & see the possibility of getting warranty.

I have an asus mother board with athlon64 3800+ cpu. I have two dual head nvidia geforce 6600 vid cards ea. w/ 1 pcie and 1 pci output to sli and vga, respectively. I barely know what I'm talking about...

sounds like your computer is going into standby or sleep mode. Does hitting enter on the keyboard turn it back on? Does pressing the power button turn it back on? One of those should do it.

You can change it so it does not do this, In windows xp you can goto power options in the control panel, and change system standby to 'never'. Not sure in vista probably about the same thing.

If this doesn't help then maybe you have a hardware problem.

Graphics card no display, not recognised

Hi DarkPredUK.
You need to check you're bios. (See below).
The PCI-E card (Single video card) must be placed into slot, PCIEX16_1 as shown on page 2-3 & 2-18 in you're user manual. The bios must be set correctly as seen on page 4-26 to PCI-E first. You must have two PCI-E cards installed to run SLI mode. (They must be exactly the same graphic cards).
Asus M2N-E SLI main web site/drivers, manual ect.

Good luck DarkPredUK.

Cant get sli working

This video card only functions as SLI with the Gigabyte motherboard GA-K8NXP-SLI. If you go to this website, it will tell you more about it.
