    Thanks, the system is an Acer Aspire am1100-e1302b

    Amd Athlon 64 4000+ @ 2.6ghz

    as for the motherboard..it shows as F690vgm.

    The memory that's in it at the moment came with the system..

    the stick I added (and pulled) is:

    1gb DDR2-667cl5 PC2 5300u (533/667mhz)

    This computer is less than1yr old.. and the additional mem stick approx 4 mos old..

    As i say this all started with adding the new vid card..I know it's not a failed memory module as i can pull the vid card..re-install the second gig of mem and run just fine..but that sux..i have simulators waiting ><

    hope this helps somehow..

    I've been building and playing with computers since my first tsr-80 ><

I have a Radeon HD3450 512MB agp graphic card and my system wont recognize it why?


You would need to install the drivers and possibly disable the on board video card in BIOS.

New Graphic card gives me a blue screen (or shuts pc down) when I go to play a game after 5 minutes or so and then recovers to reboot. Hello, I have a 2.8 gb CPU/1.5 gb mem/IBM ThinkCentre a50p...


Try reinstalling the drivers from AMD. If that doesn't help the problem, use a program like GPU-Z to monitor the temperature of the graphics card. If a graphics card overheats, it will shut the computer down giving a blue screen.
If it ends up it is overheating, try taking the side of the computer while you're playing a game or installing another fan.

I have not been able to add any AGP card to my PC.
My PC is a cube PC so I have been trying to install a "low end" AGP video card without a separate power connector. My only really requires are DirectX 9.x support and a minimum of 128MB (and no power connector)

The card I am currently trying to install is a Gigabyte ATI Radeon 9600Pro with 256MB.

I have also tried a ATI Radeon 9550 with 256MB and a Nvidia card

I have done all of the usual things, such as disabling onboard graphics, removing old video drivers, verified latest chipset drivers are installed, I reviewed the graphic adapter and don't see any conflicts etc.

I wonder if any of the cards I am trying to install will work with my AGP slot.
The manual for this Gigabyte card states "AGP 3.0 Slot or greater is required"
Unfortunately, this requirement wasn't on the Gigabyte or NewEgg web sites or the back of the box. Only in the install manual.

My Motherboard manual states "AGP 1.5v Card is required".

I got great AGP information from www.playtool.com. I used some of the tools suggested there such as Sandra Lite and other tools to try to determine what version my AGP Slot is. These tools don't seem to clearly state what

My PC is a Small Form Factor PC with 220W Power Supply.
It has integrated Intel Extreme Graphics
gBox P4 Blue CF-986L
Motherboard is a CFI-968L with last bios released (1.04)
www.american-media.com
Pentium 4 3.06Ghz
1G RAM
80G HD
Chipset is Intel 845GE
Intel Extreme Graphics
Windows XP Home

This is a awesome PC and I really would like to extend the life of it my adding any AGP card that supports DirectX 9.x

Since you want to upgrade your video card to a much powerful one, you can check this out ATI Radeon HD 4670 HD4670 512MB DVI PCIe Video Card.

Doing the upgrade a power supply upgrade is also advisable since new video card like now requires a high power supply, upgrade the power supply to at least 500W and for a additional fan is already recommended to avoid any overheating problem.

New graphics card problems with my Presario SR5350F...


Make sure you plug in any auxiliary power cables are are required for the video card.

Is the card used. Has it ever shown signs of life?

Go into windows via integrated graphics and install the latest drivers.

After that I would go into your bios with integrated graphics and turn off intergrated graphics. Look around if there's like a setting that's like switch to PCIx graphics or something. After the restart try to use your monitor though your video card.

Hi Binny2, this sounds like a power issue & not a possible graphics card issue.
You can try a couple of things.
Use only one DIMM of memory, not both at first. Try booting system, check for display & POST beep………. No?
Clear your cmos, see page 23 in manual.
Next, see page 17 in your manual for, 8-pin ATX_12V Power Connector for CPU: "PWR2".
(Also see: “Note” at bottom of page 17). This MB needs both 8-pin ATX 12v connectors, connected. It is not recommended to drop down to a 4-pin 12v connection as shown on page 17.
You may need one or two of these power connectors:

Good luck Binny2!
Still no system beep?
Let me know. What size is your current power supply wattage?
Happy holidays!
