What brand is the HD? have you checked the jumpers? Windows XP pro has some problems with and internal HDD with more the 167Gb, so in worse case, back everything up, recheck your HD jumpers and format the HDD deleting all the partitinos made and betting on a NOT quick format.

What BIOS settings have to be changed to recognize a sound card?

New systems have integrated sound cards, so most likely it just the drivers you need,

However, if you have a PCI add on card it should be plug and play. Again you may need the drivers or setup the PCI card so it recognizes it.

If you have an antiquated system then you need to find and adjust the IRQ settings in BIOS. Some software like games also have specific IRQ setting so there are no conflicts. I am talking old like Win 3.1, 95, or 98.

Can a PCI video card be installed on the Intel SE7501BR2 server board? My onboard video has color problems. I tried a known-working PCI video board after turning off onboard video, but got no video...

Most of the time you'll need to change a setting in the BIOS to force the computer to recognize the PCI slot first. Try going through your BIOS settings until you find it. It should be something like "Display First" or Primary, and it should be set to onboard graphics. Try changing that to PCI and see if that fixes your problem.

My HP M7260n doesn't recognize my new Video Card...

You might need to uninstall the old video card device, so Windows does not use the old drivers for the new card.
Another option is to try and boot in Safe Mode (press F8 during startup), so Windows uses the VGA mode (which all video cards support), and then install the proper driver.
Installing the latest ATI driver updates might also not be a bad step.

I can't get my board to recognize my ATI Radeon x300 se in the pcie pnp will not even recognize it.

You must enter the bios menu and set the video controller to boot to the PCIe first. Save and exit the bios. The proper orders when installing a PCI-E card is as follows; before you install you’re new video card onto the motherboard. Install the graphics cards software. Than shut down the system. Install the video card. Boot system and enter the bios menu. Go to and open Advance.
Open North Bridge Configuration
See page 4-23 in manual.

Internal Graphics Adapter should be set to [PEG/PCI]
Internal Graphics Mode Select should be set to [Disabled]
PEG Port Control set to [Auto]

Save you're changes and exit the bios. You should be able to boot to you're PCI-E graphics card now.

Firewire PCI card not recognized


Sometimes, when one is inserting a card, one does not push it firmly in place. If some contacts are not well established, the card may not be recognized.

Hope it helps.

Booting Problem

Hi there.

You will need to open your BIOS settings, and change your boot sequence/priority so that it includes PCI cards. Save and exit, and see if it then boots.

If you need anymore help, or need me to clarify anything, I'll be happy to help.

Most likely the card is not being recognized properly. Try the following to try and resolve the issue.

1. Ensure you have all of Microsoft's Windows updates for your operating system, uninstall the drivers and reinstall drivers for the card IF you have Windows updates to download/install.
2. Install the card into a different PCI slot (again reinstall the drivers). If you do not have another PCI slot, swap it with another PCI card (if you do not need that other PCI card then leave it uninstalled physically to see if the problem goes away)
3. Update the BIOS on the motherboard. To do this you may need to contact your motherboard or system vendor to assist.

What version of Windows are you using?
