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.

Hello here is the homepage:

http://www.asus.com/Motherboards/AMD_Socket_FM1/F1A75M_LE/#specifications

To enable crossfire, you must have 2 identical graphic cards.

The onboard graphic can`t be used with the hd6670.

This means that you must buy another hd6670 to add on the mainboard.

The graphic cards homepage:

http://www.asus.com/Graphics_Cards/AMD_Series/EAH6670DI1GD3/

AMD CrossFire technology is the ultimate multi-GPU performance gaming platform. Unlocking game-dominating power, AMD CrossFire harnesses the power of two or more discrete graphics cards working in parallel to dramatically improve gaming performance.

You also need a large power supply min. 500 watt to have enough power.

Please disable the onboard graphic in the device manager.

Good luck

Loss of graphic signal


If there is a problem with the internals graphics "card", that may cause an externally installed card not to perform. In the BIOS of some machines there is an entry under the peripherals that states something along the lines of "Initiate graphics first", then allows you to select ONBOARD or PCI. If you have this, try setting it to PCI and checking again with the card in the express slot.

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:

I would like advice on upgrading my Graphics card


Unfortunatly your still running low end CPU power and low end agp graphics. Your going to pay 150-200 just for a fair PCIe/AGP HD/3D VC. If $200 doesnt hurt (and this is the lowest price best option), then might I suggest Mobo/CPU/RAM for around $200 that would do the trick and allow for future upgrades. You might also need a power supply. I just built one less than 3 weeks ago for a friend and it fairs against my own gaming comp.

Computer Does not work correctly with Radeon 9250 Graphics Card


Hmm? Everything except replacing the motherboard, sometimes it does not get any better, but...go into your BIOS and turn off the Gateway splash screen. It will be an option in maybe the first or second menu choice. Make sure your on board video device is disabled and save your options when exiting. Good luck and let me know how it turns out.
