Question about ASUS P4S533-VM (P4S533-VM/L) Motherboard

1 Answer

V8460 ultra (and pro) agp cards on asus p4b533-vm dont work???

I have both types of this agp card and im having the same problem with both.. I get black squares over the screen in the post screen and when windows starts these change and i have pixels all over the place sometimes and small red squares all over the screen others, all the drivers are the correct ones and are the most up to date this is annoying as sometimes they will run for hours with no problems then bam! it crashes constantly. Sometimes I cant even boot up as it gets to the post and crashes. they are being cooled from both sides when in the case so overheating is not a problem. I'm running them on winXP with 256mb PC2100 crucial DDR and im using a quality 250w psu....any idea's??? also ive heard I you can use PC2700 DDR with this is this possible if the FSB is only 533?

    Thanks for your help I have had to resort to a standard video card, as I cant see the screen by the time it gets to running the test with the program you kindly gave me the link for! would you say these video cards are worth having fixed? as I was told they are quite good cards for AGP ???.....does anyone know of a place where I can send them to have repaired if it is worth doing?.......Lastly I have purchased some of the PC2700 memory and it works fine with this board....Thankyou!

    I have scrapped the graphics cards and sourced an ebay jobbie with a gainwood FX5700LE and is rather tasty compared to the nvidiaTNT2 that I had to resort back to, I'm not a gaming PC'r but I
    use it as a Media machine, using 'Media Portal' and everything is working ok on that so it'll do, and obviously with the card having larger memory its not taking such a beating out of the system so things are a little quicker, I now have a new problem......yup as you may of guessed im no computer expert! actually you could class me as a 'newborn'....anyway here goes....I have bought a P4 2.8ghz SL6HL as I read this would be ok on my ASUS P4B533-VM verion2 via the following link>>>>

    It says on the link this is a 'NORTHWOOD' but on the processor I have with this code, it is stamped 'MALAY' ??? i'm confused...when I put this processor in it wont boot I have to alter something on the board? Is the chip I've bought the wrong type (the one im using now is 0.13micron, 2.4ghz, 128 L2 cache, 400mhz) The board Is not an ASUS bios but a Viglen Bios and I cannot chage the bios as the function in the post screen isnt available I couldn't use ASUS drivers either, they didn't work but the viglen ones from there website did. The bios version I have is 1006. Im running in jumper free mode as I dont understand the switch settings and dont want to do any damage to the board or anything else. If anyone has this board setup with this 2.8ghz malay chip could you let me know how I set it up????

    Thanks for your help peeps maybe one day I'll be repaying the favour and be able to help someone else out !!!!! :-)

PC2100 is 266mhz and PC2700 is 333 so for a FSB 533, it shouldn't have any problem running PC2700 if the chipset supports it.

For your other problem. I think there is a problem with the video card memory. You can test it with this program.

    First of all. A video card is really not worth fixing. a good video card is around 80 and a repair on most onboard fix will cost you 85 to 120 an hour. and that doesn't even include parts. Glad the memory works for you. Here is another tip. A computer with 1GB of fast memory in windows is slower than a computer with 2GB of slower memory.

The best you can fit is an AGP 8X type card. They are difficult to find now, so the prices of decent cards are going up. Your computer is about 3 generations behind, You would get better graphics performance by buying a new motherboard, CPU and memory bundle. It would be cheaper in the long run, as you could then upgrade the graphics card in the future and then upgrade the CPU as well. You can still keep the case and other computer peripherals you already use. But if you want an AGP card look on the Auction sites.

Hello try the SIS homepage here:

Or here:

You have to select the windows system you are using, and the graphic card model, to find the driver.

Good luck

Fist sorry for bad english i will try my best ASUS P4P800-VM Motherboard not have video output Singal the agp card that i used dont start fan and make sound so i think it broken or is it a...

Try using the onboard video chip to run your graphics.This will tell you if the agp card is bad or not.
Remove agp card first.
Also if there is another power supply for agp card fan, try using it.

I have used circut board cleaner on vid cards to get the fan working again with sucsess.

A few ideas.

NVidea V8460 Ultra/128M graphics card is kaput

Your card uses apg x4 that is the way it is plugged in to you motherboard, inside your computer, apg x4 is very rare these days and if you looking for a replacement you should find a card that supports apg x4.

Will a NVIDIA GeForce FX 5500 video card work on a P4B533-E motherboard?

HI Lau_kua08,

First off, your motherboard is a AGP 4x slot, and the Card is a AGP 8X card. However, NVIDIA based graphic cards which support AGP 8x mode (Accelerated Graphics Port) follow the AGP 3.0 specification. The AGP 3.0 specification retains backwards compatibility with older AGP 4x technology. All NVIDIA Geforce and Quadro GPU's which support AGP 8x mode are downwards compatible with AGP 4x motherboards. When a graphics card which operates at AGP 8x mode is installed on a motherboard which only supports up to AGP 4x mode, the card will automatically switch to AGP 4x operation.

So, yes it will work.

Good Luck,

P4p800-vm pci slot is not recognising the add on card ( TV tuner)

There is no PCI-E slot on this motherboard. It has an AGP 8x slot and 3 PCI slots, but no PCI-E. Therefore, even if you could manage to get the PCI-E card physically into the slot it will never work.

Here is a link to the manual -

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.
