    How do you figure that you're not getting power to your video card? Are you not getting an image?

Double check that the video card is seated completely in the motherboard.

Double check or even reseat your RAM and make sure that it is completely pressed in with the locks in place.

With your computer powered down (still plugged in) Reset your CMOS. (by pulling the jumper off (2 pin) or moving the jumper to the other pin (3 pin setup). *for the 3 pin set up, the jumper may be located on pin 1-2, move the jumper so it is on 2-3. Then switch the jumper back to its original position after 30 seconds or so. Your CMOS jumper pins are typically located toward the bottom right hand side of the motherboard.

If still nothing, test the video card in another system to see if it works. If not, then we may have a dead video card and may have to either return or RMA it back to the seller/distributor.

Does the MSI K8n NEO4 Platinum SLI motherboard support the Geforce GTX 550 Video Card?


The MSI K8N NEO 4 Platinum Edition mobo, has an AGP graphics expansion slot. (Accelerated Graphics Port)

It uses AGP graphics cards that are either 4X, or 8X. (Supports 1.5 Volt AGP graphics cards, hence 8X)

http://www.msi.com/product/mb/K8N-Neo-Platinum.html#/?div=Detail

Click on the Specification tab. Look under the bold - Slots - subheading.

(Overview, { Which is the tab it automatically opens to}, Specification, Download, Support, News and Awards, Where to Buy )

This is Evga's version of the Nvidia GeForce GTX 550,

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814130625

Click on the Details tab. (Overview, Details, Feedback)

Under the bold - Interface - heading, and to the right of the subheading - Interface, we see the interface is - PCI-Express 2.0 x16.

Tells you a lot right off the bat, if you know what you are looking at.

1) The graphics expansion slot you need on your motherboard, is a PCI-Express x16 slot.

You have an AGP graphics expansion slot. (That uses either 4X, or 8X AGP graphics cards)

2) The PCI-Express technology used is PCI-Express 2.0

Therefore the answer is No, Stephen.

[ More info on AGP graphics technology, and PCI-Express technology,

1) AGP:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/AGP

2) PCI-Express:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/PCI_Express

Now if someone asks you, why the GeForce GTX 550 graphics card will not work on your motherboard, you can explain why in detail, instead of just saying some dude/dudette on FixYa, said it will not work.

Are you sure some 'Mom and Pop' computer store will not trade out, a decent AGP graphics card, for the Nvidia GeForce GTX 550 you have?
Always worth a shot. Just MHO.

Please check the following :
- First, deactivate the onboard VGA adapter in your BIOS. Some other settings can help to start up first the external video adapter.
- If this did not help, check that you have the latest BIOS version, some BIOS have been updated in the past, especially for some graphic card support for some Nvidia cards.
- Then some questions : do you have picture on this card when booting ? Such as the power on self test (POST) ?

If you need a new card for gaming purpose please go for ati 5770 or nvidia 9800 gt as you will get a better gaming performance from both of these as compared to 240gt.

You may also have to upgrade your power supply unit as higher graphics card require more power.

I can't play any 3D games cause the screen goes Skitzo.


A pci graphics card is not suitable for playing games especially games like WoW. You need to get a new computer with a good graphics card eg, nvidia geforce 9600gt with a core 2 duo/quad processor!

MSI Graphics card keeps making computer lock up unexpectedly. Plese Help!!!


You could have bad memory or you could have shorted the memory out with a static charge while you where handling the memory. Try to get one stick of memory you know is in working order and which is of the proper soecifications for your system such as un buffered or buffered registered or non registered . You will need to know the proper memory required for your motherboard by researching the manufactuers web site for your model number of your motherboard. Some dimm slots are set in order [1,2,3,4,] you will need to locate the number 1, dimm slot and make sure you insert the memory stick in that location . While doing this make sure you discharge you body from a static electric charge by using a wrist ground strap or touching the power dupply metal case befor handling any of your pc parts as you install them ! I hope this helps .
