Xfx 7950gt agp 512mb

I just recently got a xfx 7950gt agp from a friend who came to visit us from the US. now my current/previous videocard is the inno3d 6800gt agp 256mb, i replaced the 6800gt with the 7950gt, plugged in the molex power turned it on, nothing on my monitor. the computer was booting up but there was no images been shown on my monitor. so i took it out, see if i would work in my old computer. turned it on , i could see all those bios stuff, but it had blocks all over the place in different colours. does the mean i have a defective 7950gt and should have it returned back somehow for another videocard? or is there a way of fixing this problem? thank you in advance.

I sell & servicing hardware in my country for 17 years now. I also bought XFX 7900GS AGP for myself 5 months ago and after one month I experienced same problem. XFX Supplier just replace my card. I think that XFX have some problems with this series of cards.
New one works fine 3 months now. You had to replace Your card believe me... I find this becouse I'm interesting to buy 7950GT. :)

Your grafics card could be bending from the soldering which would have been caused by a faulty moiniter or the grafics card is for a diffrent type of computer and conflicts with your other hard ware e.g delll with compack

Hi mistyman, thank you for reading my post and replying to it I do have the drivers from the cd that came with the videocard and also downloaded them from the xfx website as well. I've also loaded the drivers for the 7950gt before i installed it into my computer. But it still does not work. Basically its installed extra power from the molex, machine boots up as normal absolutely nothing is showning on the monitor it says no signal detected. If it helps i am using an ASUS A7N8X-E Deluxe motherboard, with a Zalman 600w Heatpipe power supply.

Hi, if you have got the drivers for this v/card then load them while you have your present one in place, if you dont have the drivers then go to the manufacturers website and get them . when you have loaded the drivers then check if you need to enable any changes in your bios. Change the card and if it is functional then you should have solved your problem. A card that advanced needs drivers far greater than you would find in XP. Regards mistyman

I am a gamer and p5vdc-mx has only agp slot and i want 1gb vga card but it is harder to find in agp slot i find only pci express x16 cards can i use riser card to convert agp to pci e x16

I dont think there are any agp to pci ex riser cards.As pci e x16 is part of the motherboard circutry.

There are pci to agp riser cards.If your going to be playing some of the latest games.Most games in the past 3 yrs require a pci x16 vid card.

I suggest geting another motherboard,chipset,and memory.Along with a Pci e x 16 card min 512mb.

2nd monitor doesnt work either

Ensure your are running the monitors in dual mode still. Open your Nvidia Control Panel and click on "setup up multiple displays" Then on right panel you should see where to select your option on how to run the 2nd one. You might need a driver update from Nvidia, especially if you recently took an update from Microsoft.

Hope this helps

Is DFI AK75-AL compatible with 128Mb/128 bit video card?

Yes, the DFI AK75-AL motherboard has a VIA KT-133A chipset which is compatible with a FX5200 videocard, but not at the full 8x AGP speed (as the videocards supports) but only at 4x AGP speed (maximum speed supported by the motherboard).

PS: Make sure you use the newest motherboard BIOS en VIA chipset drivers to ensure compability.

Video Card not working.

Connect your monitor card into your origional monitor port. Boot to BIOS and disable the VGA port. Save and exit. After re-start, shut down and install the new AGP.

PSU 250W usually isn`t good with GF6600 (like and high) videocards. Strongly recommended 350W and high for this configuration (and "350W" - not only numbers in model - for really QUALITY PSUs).
