Re: harddrive

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.

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.

You may have tried this & I missed it.
For htis new cardto work, you need to DISABLE the on-montherbord video.
Go to BIOS Setup and you will find a spot where you can disable onboard video.
Now Mboard will recognize your new video card.

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.

PCI-E card does not work, onboard video works fine, this is the second card.

The Abit IP-95 manual doesn't show you how to adjust your bios settings when adding a PCI-E x16 graphics card. When adding a PCI-E card you'll need to adjust a few settings within, Advanced Setup.
Press the delete key on your keyboard every two seconds to load your bios menu. Within Advanced Setup look for, Onboard Device Configuration and open it. Find, Primary Graphics Adapter.
Set this to read as [PCI-E, VGA] save your changes and exit.

Currently your onboard graphics is enabled. You'll need to change this setting to PCI-E first. When you use the onboard UniChrome Pro 2D/ 3D Graphics & Video Controller you are also using some of your system memory to run the UniChrome graphics. Once you enable the bios to boot to the PCI-E card you can also stop using your system memory assigned to the UniChrome card. Link to Abit is provided below, click on it to open;

Need m2n sli

Your SLI drivers as you mentioned were installed when your chipset drivers were installed. (NVIDIA nForce CK804 Chipset Driver).
If you use 1 PCI-E graphics card the bios will need to be adjusted to [Auto].
Using 2 PCI-E graphics cards you must install the EZ selector card correctly. See page 4-20 section 4.4 Adjust; SLI Configuration. Than see section 4.4.6 in your manual
Open the Asus link below if you need drivers for your M2N-E SLI;

This may seem a bit tricky but its not. First time around the bios settings using SLI graphics cards will appears tough but you'll get it.

Can we/should we update our bios?

I would not update the BIOS if you aren't haveing problems. If you use WinXP you should have no problems updating the Hard Drive to the 500GB, If you format the disk using the NTFS File system when you install windows, and it only recognizes 137GB of the 500GB, then update, but you shouldn't have any problems. thanks for any ratings

Pci video card

If you have internal graphics, you need to enter the BIOS and change the vide setting to PCI-E, AGP,Etc.., save and exit the BioS, power off PC, then install video card, make sure all needed power connectors on vide caard are plugged in (some nes cards require a plug from the power supply to be used as well as the power provided from the PCI-E slot)
