Question about MSI RC410M-L Motherboard

1 Answer

Unexpectedly lost graphics, but theres a story to the issue.

So this gateway that i picked up had onboard graphics. Its running xp home with an amd cpu. I had a nice geforce graphics card that was pci express, and i decided to put it in. I loaded the card, and booted the system. Things went good until the first restart, at which point the monitor didnt come on. I switced the vga cable back and on it came. so after booting into windows, i restarted, and the monitor did it again, this time wanting the new pci express card. So I switched it back, and booted into windows. Now, to try to prevent this on each restard, I went into device manager and disabled the onboard graphics from the windows side. After restarting, it now favored the pci express card.

2 weeks goes by, and all is well until 2 nights ago. I shut down the pc, and when I wake up and go to turn it on, i get no display from the monitor. So, I climb underneith the desk and switch the vga cable back to the onboard graphics, and the monitor comes on. Only this time, after the windows loading screen, it just goes black (im assuming because i disabled the onboard vga in windows). No matter what I do, it wont boot to the pci express card, and everytime i boot to the onboard, they work until windows starts, then the screen goes black. I tryed to boot into safe mode a few times, and when loading the safe mode files, the pc freezes on mup.sys EVERYTIME.

Any suggestions?

You mentioned that you disabled the on-board graphics card using the device mamager.
You should disable the on-board video card in the BIOS.
Go to the BIOS config and disable the Video.

I don't think It's possible. Normally the Graphics card over rides the onboard Video. You would have to get another Graphics card with duel video ports.

Adding a Video card


No, When you plug in the Discrete graphics card it causes a bypass of the onboard video chip. The only system that will use the onboard video is the new APU units, and these only give a boost to the graphics card.

How to disable on-board VGA card my machine Gateway E-4620d I have installed a External NIVIDIA Graphics Card into my machine Gateway E-4620d how disable on-board VGA


In the bios there should be a tab for onboard devices. Just scroll through the tabs until you find one called VGA. Cycle through the options and pick disable if the option is enable/disable only selections....or pick auto if the choices are either onboard or pci-x , pci, etc.....

Unable to install Radeon HD6450 2gb Graphic card on ASUS P5RD2-VM Motherboard. I am using 32 bit Window xp


Hi, you can download a manual here:

http://support.asus.com/Download.aspx?SLanguage=en&m=P5RD2-VM&p=1&s=22

Please select your operating system.
Select manual and click on global.
Unzip the file before you can read it.
Upgrade the other drivers if some missing.
Run also windows update.

You may have to disable the onboard graphic in the bios.
You can also try to upgrade the bios by using the
asus upgrade utility.

The graphic card must be a PCI-E socket.
I guess the old driver is making a conflict as it is the same brand.

And download the latest driver for your graphic card here:

Go to the AMD website (they bought ATI) and surf for the video/drivers page for the downloads. Also, dig deep on the page and go through all the known issues section - ATI does an excellent job of documenting when a computer/software/graphics combination has a problem.

Also check the Tosiba website for the same information- manufacturers often post "patches" for known problems.

Good Luck!

Try to set your PCI-E card as a first one in BIOS. There also should be an option to turn off onboard video.

The problem is that you are searching AMD for a Gateway driver. They have proprietary BIOS which AMD will not recognize so get the drivers here: http://support.gateway.com/s/PC/R/1015332R/1015332Rnv.shtml   Merry Christmas and post back if you have any further issues. Steve Medley

Driver is missing


The ATI website may or may not have that particular driver on it (I can't remember). However, I would first try the manufacturer's website (i.e. Dell, Gateway, HP). If neither of those have the driver you are looking for, try this: http://www.softwarepatch.com/utilities/mobility-radeon.html

Looking to replace processor


Athlon? 64 3000+ ~ 4000+ Athlon FX FX 55 ~ FX59 Athlon 64 X2 4200+ ~ 4800+ The above processors are supported on your board, i think you may have bought the bottom one, although check the model number as the HT means hypertheading, which is AMD version of the Intel Core Duo, which means the processor can manage two or more processor stressing programmes at once, but you should always purchase a suitable heatsink and fan to cool the processor. As regards the onboard graphics, there will be a setting in the bios (to get to it,F2 or Del on boot up) which will be in the advanced cmos settings menu or similair and look for words to the effect 'primary graphics controller' and set this at either pci or agp depending on your model graphics card. Save settings and exit the bios for a re boot.
