PCI-E recognition issue on intial start up ASUS P5GC-MX/1333

Hi I have a grphics card installed on my ASUS P5GC-MX/1333. Ever since I installed it when do a cold power up, the BIOS is not recognizing the GC. If I use the on board to get to the log on screen when I can reboot, restart the machine, and it then sees the card.

The only time there is the issue is during a cold start.

Here are the BIOS settings I thought may be pertinant.

Allow IRQ to PCI VGA is set to Yes
Pallette Snooping is set to Enable

Boot settings configuration
AddOn ROM Display mode is set to Keep Current

BIOS is American Megatrends V02.58
OS is Vista Ultimate

    "first go to the video card selection in advanced
    and then set the setting to pci/pciinternal or pciint/pci ext"

    I do not see a "video card" in the advanced menu of the bios.

Setting palette snooping to yes does not work for.

My problem is that after a cold boot the PCIe GPU card is not detected or not detected in time. Hence the on board video is enabled.

If I do a cold boot and press ctl-al-del right after POST (force a warm boot) then the PCIe card is detected fine.

I have asus P5GC-MX 1333 mobo with bios 413 and asus En210/SILENT/DI/1GP3/V2(LP).

Tried about every setting I can think of. Drives me nuts.

    not solved???



To solve this problem you have to do the following things in the series.

first remove all the extra cards and then connect to the onboard vga connector. then start the sys and go to bios settings. if you know the advanced adjustments then
correct them as follows. otherwise just select load optimized settings.

first go to the video card selection in advanced
and then set the setting to pci/pciinternal or pciint/pci ext

then set the pallette snooping to yes.
shutdown system

place graphics card and then donot change any setting. then you'll get the display.

i have the same motherboard and i also faced this once. it is not a problem it is just misconfiguration.

    i mean go to the bios
    in there

    advanced tab -> chipset ->Graphics adapter priority-> pci express/int vga

    this makes the auto detection of the graphics card.

    check it and

    in advanced tab only under the jumper free configuration try to keep all settings to auto.

Is a 2gb video card compatible with ASUS P5GC-MX/1333?? Also what is the max ram size the motherboard can take???

The motherboard's max memory supported is 4GB. The 2GB part of the video card is not really what decides if it is compatible or not; it is the interface of the video card. The motherboard in question has slots for PCI Expressx16 and PCI Expressx1.

Yes you can put a 1 gb card. The motherboard has PCI Express so you don't have to worry to much. The older AGP cards are almost gone.

You could buy a GeForce 8500, 8600, or 8800, or the 9 series. You can also buy a Radeon HD 5870 or 5570.

If you need further assistance, please post. And do not forget to rate.
