Question about EliteGroup 661FX-M7 (661FXM7V11) Motherboard

1 Answer

Installed a new Saphirre Radeon x1650 512mb, 128bit, AGP 8x card. But I am not seeing a significant increase over the onboard graphics. The card install sheet says to Disable the onboard video, but I don't know how to do that. Any help?

    I did go into the BIOS, but all I saw was options to alocate memory to the video. There was something about AGP slot but that had options of 4x or 8x. I don't see where I disable the video or tell it to find something else first.

  • spencermcint Apr 16, 2009

    Awesome, I am looking at it in my manual now. I did see those last night just wasnt sure what they was. Now what about the AGP Fast Write Support, default is Disabled, does this help anything? for that matter those other settings in the AGP & P2P Bridge menu.

    Tried what you said when I got home and it made it worse. I tried loading Optimized settings, it changed it to a PCI slot and some other changes. But it still sucks for video.

    I did what you said, it made it worse. I loaded Optimized settings but it still sucks. I was getting better graphics without any cards.

  • Anonymous Apr 17, 2009

    Did that. The only thing showing in DM under video adapters is the new card. Primary and Secondary. In the BIOS there are two options for INT DISPLAY FIRST: AGP or PCI slot. When I set the optimized defaults it changed the setting from AGP to PCI slot, I thought that ment: AGP = onboard graphics and PCI slot = External Card. but I have worse graphics now than I did without the card.

    Onboard graphics are disabled via the motherboard's BIOS. As the computer is booting press the delete key immediately and repeatedly until you get into the BIOS. Then disable onboard graphics and tell it to look in your AGP slot first.

In your BIOS on the main screen choose INTEGRATED PERIPHERIALS (get a copy of your manual here if you don't have one), then go to INIT DISPLAY FIRST, and choose AGP. It's not clear from the manual if AGP is an available option, choose PCI slot if it is not. ECS is notoriously sloppy with their BIOS programming.

While you are in the BIOS, under ADVANCED CHIPSET FEATURES choose AGP &P2P BRIDGE CONTROL then make sure your AGP DATA RATE is set to auto.

    The other settings in that menu I would not change unless the manual for your video card mentions them.

    I'm going to assume that you followed the instructions, then booted into Windows and installed your video card drivers. At that point the quality was poor so you went back into the BIOS and tried optimized settings. If that is NOT what you did, follow my directions below.

    Ok, boot into Windows and go to your device manager. Expand the box with the + sign next to DISPLAY ADAPTERS. What display device is shown there, your onboard or your new card? If it is the onboard, right click the adapter name and go to properties. On the general tab go to the bottom and change the drop-down menu to DO NOT USE THIS DEVICE - DISABLE. Click OK, shut down your computer, then reboot, set your BIOS to look for your AGP card and when you get into Windows use the disk that came with your video card and install the video drivers.

    Post again if that does not take care of it.

Can I use a AGP 8X ATI Radeon 9550 256MB 128bit Video Card in my pc?


No. The mainboard you are listing is not capable of AGP cards. AGP cards have gone the way of the dinosaur. Modern mainboards do not have AGP-compatible slots anymore, only PCIE 1x, 8x, and 16x slots.

Looking to upgrade my graphic card one last time. Currently running a RADEON X850 AGP 8x. Dell XPS, 3 GHz Pent4 w/875P chipset.(800MHz Bus Clock, 400MHz DDR, Hyper-threaded (2)-- I would like the highest...


I wouldnt know whether you just like ATI Graphics cards, or it was recommended for you. But I would still give you my straight forward advice, and this is : Go for NVIDIA Ge-FORCE graphics cards. Trust me, you would thank me for it later.
I didnt want to recommend a specific model for you though, because of our difference in country locations, but just try and get a high memory (like 256MB and above), NVidia Graphics card that is compatible with your system. Also check out the available slot on your system that you will use for it first before you go (So that you wont go and get an AGP slot card when you have just an open PCI Slot). I'm telling you this because I've used A LOT of graphics cards also (Over 10 years now)! and I've come to that conclusion that NVIDIA makes the best graphics card.
Hope this helps you out.
Goodluck!

Is visiontek a radeon hd 2400 pro agp 8 compatible w/ p4s800- mx?


ATI has recently written some better drivers for the 2400 Pro AGP cards,... Make sure the setting in the BIOS for the motherboard is set to the AGP or PCI for primary video. For AGP, make sure that you have the power from the power supply connected to the video card. Make sure that your motherboard does support 8X AGP video cards. If you are not sure, please check with motherboard manufacturer for compatibility.

Graphics card support to motherboard D845GBV


AGP 2.0 and 3.0 4x and 8x feed with the 1.5v spec. AGP 1.0 1x and 2x was fed at 3.3v. In short, you should be fine.
