With ASUS M2N-MX mainboard, ATI Radeon 7000 Series problem.

Your Motherboard has an onboard video chipset made by Nvidia. Nvidia and ATI have a history of not playing nice with each other.

I have 2 possible solutions for you.

1.) Remove the Radeon card and use the Nvidia onboard card (Essentially a Geforce 6100)

2.) Enter the bios (Usually done by hitting <Delete> or <F12> while the computer is booting up) Your Motherboards manual can tell you for certain. Then find the options for onboard video and disable it.

Then boot up the PC, When it say starting Windows press <F8> to bring up the windows boot menu. Select "Start in Safe mode" Once this loads up open the device manager, look under "Display adapters" find the entry for the Nvidia adapter, right click on it and select either "Uninstall" or "Disable this device"

Which you choose depends on your personal preference Whether you like Nvidia or ATI boards better.

If it makes your decision easier a Geforce 6100 is roughly equivalent to a Radeon 8500 in performance.

I hope this helps

Cant install powercolor 9600 pro on EliteGroup 845GV-M3 mobo... Fan will run in agp express slot but hardware not found on boot up (win XP)

HI findads,

You need to make a change in your bios. Still have your manual for the 845GV-M3 motherboard?
If not you can download it at this link:
You will also need Adobe reader to view the pdf file. Get Adobe for free at:

If you have already installed the 9600 AGP card, please shut down your system. Unplug the power cord from the power supply. Open your case & remove the 9600 AGP card. One must follow an order of sequences’ when changing graphics cards. Once removed, reconnect the power cord to the power supply & boot the system. (It’s ok not to close your case). As the system starts to boot, press the Delete key on your keyboard every two seconds. The main bios menu will load. Read the instruction at the bottom of the menu which will show you how to move about in the bios.
(The mouse does not function while in the bios).
Using the manual to help change a settings.

Go to Advanced Chipset Features page 35, than into Integrated Peripherals, page 37.
Set Init Display First to [AGP]. Save the bios & exit. The system will auto restart. Once your screen goes to black, press & hold the power on / off button on your case until the system shuts off.
Unplug the power cord from the power supply. Install the AGP video card. Make sure it is completely seated & even in the AGP slot. Screw it down. Before closing the case, re-check all internal power connections to every device & all data connections. (Snug fit). Close your case & reconnect the power cord to the PC. Boot your system. You should have display & windows should load.
Install the CD software for the 9600 Pro video card. Restart the PC. Go to power color & check for any driver updates for the 9600 Pro card.
Before installing any update from PowerColor check windows for updates.

Everything should work out ok.
Good luck findads!

After Power Out No Video (AT ALL) Upon Reboot

Plug a PCI VGA card into one of the PCI slots on your motherboard and connect your monitor signal cable to this add-on PCI VGA card and turn on your system . If your monitor shows the usual startup screen then you continue booting your comp and let the OS load , thereafter you BACKUP your DATA . Use a PCI VGA card from TRIDENT or S3 etc., so that your OS will use built drivers to display at 256 , 16 bit or 24 bit colour depth . These motherboards have problems around the GMCH or the Northbridge chip which has Graphics & Memory Control integrated . The refresh signal to your monitor does not indicate proper working of these GMCH . The memory of your comp needs attention and a check .

No display

Can you get any video when booting to safe mode
(aka VGA mode) If so Have you installed the latest drivers from ATI and Nvidia for those specific video cards? Is there an on-board video card for this MB??? that could have conflicting IRQ's when installing the new cards? if so I would disable the on board in the bios. also what kind of card is it.. PCI, PCI express, AGP... You may want to lokk in the bios to make sure that port is enabled for display on boot and that it is set correctly for your type of card interface. Also .. LOL this monitor works right? I need more details from you, this should be fairly easy to resolve tho. Can you see it POST? then when it loads Windows/Linux.. whatever os you are useing the monitor goes black?if thats the case the vidoe resolution is set too high for the current monitor and you will need to boot to safe mode to resolve it. Or it could be a Hardware "ghosting" issue where the card is not displayed in device manager but the system still thinks its there.. so when you remove the card to try to reinstall nothing changes.

Provide more details so I can troubleshoot this better..

Your ATI has two DVI connectors but your monitor can only take CRT. In the box came an adapter to change your video signal from DVI to CRT. You connect this to your monitor cable & hand tighten the 2 screws, this connects to the video card. While in windows open control panel, than open Display than click Settings. Click Advanced. Among the tabs here, there should be a tab that says Catalyst Control Center. This is where you setup your display. You can't be switching between the two DVI ports. Ya need to stay with one. The second is for another monitor.
In here is also Help. The control center will help you adjust your adapter. If you do not have the Catalyst Control Center you'll have to download it from this link:
