Re: on board sound and graphics

Hi Keith, If you are using Windows XP: Right click on "My Computer"; Click on Properties; Click on Hardware Tab; Verify that there is no Red or Yellow marked entry; If there are, then drivers are not installed or there is a problem; The drivers for the Asus A7S8X-MX are available at the Download pages of the Asus site. In "Input Model to Search", type "A7S8X-MX", in Select Category, choose "Drivers", click on "Search Info". On the new page click on link"A7S8X-MX", click on the "All" tab. Listed are all the downloadable drivers. Hope this be of some help to you. Post back how things turned up or should you need additional information. Good luck and kind regards.

I have new intel dh55tc . I get display through nvidia graphics card . can I get display through vga.


You can get a display through > DVI, VGA, HDMI which are on-board. You can also use the nVidia card which may be better.

I want to use a better vga but it isnt any port

Without a VGA port, you can't use a VGA card, pretty simple stuff.

If you want to add a video card, you will need to get a PCI video card (NOT PCI-E!) There are a number of them out there, and pretty much anything made in the last 3 to 4 years will be better than the on-board video...

Display problem

Hi there
try going into the bios settings and disable the on board graphics and change it to PCI or PCI Express.
You may have to plug the monitor into the on-board VGA port to do this, once done shut the computer down and change graphics port, then restart the pc, your problem should now be solved

Good luck and kind regards

No Video

Hi Keith, the Intel D845GVAD2 board uses an integrated graphics card for video & also uses your system memory to function.
Suggest, you remove the system memory & clean the contacts with alcohol. (Allow time for the alcohol to dry). Blow the memory slots out with canned air to remove any dust build up. Reseat your memory & boot the system. (No display)?
From your description it sounds like the integrated graphics controller may be bad. The only way to test this would be to add a PCI video card to the system.
The board’s bios uses auto detect. If you add a PCI graphics card to the system the bios should auto detect the PCI video card & load display.
There is a chance that the controller is too damaged & the bios will not see the PCI graphics add in card. In this case the board would be considered bad. If you have a local computer shop or know of someone who may (have a known to be good) PCI video card, you can ask to borrow it & test your system for video display.
Here is a link to an inexpensive PCI card:

Good luck Keith!

Computer Freezing

I have built several gaming computers and if I had your problem, the first thing I would try is to add a stick of memory.Then I would get me a graphics card with some memory built on the board (256 meg). You motherboard should run a pci graphics card with no problem.

Graphics card problem

Hi rovin,
So you bought an XFX GeForce 256MB video card. You're board has 1 free AGP 8x video slot & 3 PCI (White opened slots).
You mention there is not slot for the new card. (What type of video card did you buy)? PCI-E, AGP or PCI?
The only slot you're board does not have is a PCI-Express.
Look in you're manual on page 1-7 for the location of the AGP video card slot.
94565e6.jpg If you bought the wrong card, exchange it for an AGP 8x or PCI.
The ASUS P5PE-VM uses a integrated Intel® 865G chipset with integrated Intel® Extreme Graphics 2 Technology, which uses you're system memory to function.
If you need a manual you can download it from Asus. Click on the link to open to the P5PE-VM download site.

I hope you find this helpful.

I'm sorry to say that I had much the same problem with a RMA'ed mobo from Asus. The one that came back worked for a short time, and then died.

I can't say that Asus is the only one I've had the same problem with, Intel has done the same. But I kinda expected more from Asus. I did not bother again, I just decided to do a mobo/CPU/memory upgrade at Fry's.

P4VMM2 Motherboard problems with RAM Cards changing fron SDRAM to DDR

Depending on your version of motherboard, it may only take ddr when you change the motherboard jumpers, as i assume you have 2 SDRAM and 2 DDR slots, but you will need to refer to your manual
