Question about Intel Motherboard

Still Doesn't Work

What I don't understand is the power issue.  I keep hearing to "plug the power into the PCI-E slot."  I don't see any power cables from the PSU that fit into the PCI-E power slots.  I don't see any connections on the GeForce 8600 card itself. How can I tell if it's a power issue with the video card?

I disconnected all peripherals and also reset the CMOS. Still get nothing on the monitor.


I just installed the Intel DP35DP with an Intel Core Duo processor, I also added the required DDR2 RAM. I also upgraded the power supply.  When I turn on the computer nothing happens.  The monitor says No Video Detected and the USB ports don't work (i.e., I plug in any USB device like my lighted keyboard and nothing happens).  I also have a new GeForce 7600 PCI-E graphics card.


The first time I turned it on after installation the initial Intel screen asking me whether I wanted to use F2 to configure the system. I couldn't do it because my USB keyboard, USB mouse, etc doesn't work. When I powered off and on again I get absolutely nothing but the blank video screen.

Unfortunately the DP35DP doesn't come with PS/2 connections for the mouse and keyboard. Strictly USB.

Wow ;) LOL

So you wont need USB drivers in dos. Your bios will enable usb support on its own. It is called USB/Legacy support.

As for the system not booting. Your keyboard wont stop it from booting.

So lets start with some basic TS Steps.

    Thanks to jmorgan123, bluegreenash, and Enuro12, I made some progress. Unfortunately I'm in an infinite loop....the BIOS keeps rebooting whether I try to enter Windows Vista Normally or in Safe Mode.


    I've been attempting to Repair using the Windows Vista boot disk but still can't get it out of the infinite reboot mode.

You needed to configure bios (F2) when you first installed the processor,


now the Bios hangs before anything can happen,  You need to remove the Bios Battery (looks like a coin on the mobo) for about 30 secs (with the power disconnected)  then re-insert the battery and power on.


you should get the same power on message as you did the 1st time (maybe with a missings settings error too but this is expected)


Enuro12 is right about legacy USB in that your keyboard should work in BIOS (setup)

Adding discrete graphics card to p6stp-fl


1) Unplug the computer from power.

2) Press the Power On button in, and hold it in for a count of 10 seconds. Let go. (HAS to be 10. Count)
Do this same procedure TWO more times.
(IF the Power On LED flashes for a second, keep repeating until it doesn't)

What you are doing is clearing CMOS Error Codes, and resetting BIOS Setup parameters back to the factory default settings.

3) FOLLOWING Anti-Static Precautions remove the graphics card.
Plug the monitor back into the Integrated (OnBoard) graphics, of the motherboard. (VGA connector)

4) Plug the computer back into power. WAIT 1 minute, turn the computer on.

5) When Windows has loaded wait a couple of minutes, then take that graphics card's Installation (CD) Disk, and put it in the optical drive.

If the disk doesn't start loading after 10 seconds, go to My Computer, and double-click on the drive letter, next to the optical drive, the Installation Disk is in.

When asked choose all software. Nvidia Control Panel, and drivers.

Your computer will keep on using the Integrated (OnBoard) drivers, for graphics. It will Not use the drivers, and software you are installing now, until the graphics card is physically installed.

Install all software. If you are asked to restart your computer -> NO
Close all windows, go back to your desktop screen.
Turn the computer off normally.
(Start > Turn Off Computer > Turn Off)

6) Unplug from power, follow Anti-Static Precautions.
Unplug the monitor from the motherboard. Physically install the graphics card.
Plug the monitor into the graphics card. Close the computer case.

7) Plug into power. WAIT 1 minute, turn the computer on.
You may have to go into Nvidia Control Panel, and set the correct parameters for your monitor. (Screen Resolution / Color quality )

Clear CMOS Error Codes, and reset BIOS Setup back to factory settings doesn't work?
You get to go back into BIOS Setup, and set the submenu you changed, (Or submenu's), back to the factory standard setting.

You are trying to use the OnBoard graphics drivers for the -> graphics card. This = NO.
You need THE drivers for the graphics card installed F-I-R-S-T.

(OnBoard. ON the motherBOARD.
Used to be used for Integrated Graphics.
Makes it easier to understand if you use OnBoard Graphics )


When a device, (In this case a graphics adapter card), is installed, Windows 'breaks it's neck' to find suitable, matching drivers.
If THE drivers are not there, Windows will match up one of it's THOUSANDS of generic drivers.

This = No.

You need THE drivers already installed. Windows looks to see what device is installed, then finds THE drivers needed.

My ATI firepro V7800 makes continuous beeping noise. PC does not boot when I turn it on.....pls help!!!

1) Believe the continuous beeping you hear is a BIOS Beep Code, stating you have a graphics problem. Computer, not video card, is beeping.

2) Do you have the external 6-pin PCI-Express power cable plugged into the graphics card, from the Power Supply?

3) IF, your Power Supply does not have a 6-pin PCI-Express power cable, are you using TWO 4-pin Peripheral power cables, connected to a 6-pin PCI-Express adapter power cable?

To wit;

6-pin PCI-Express power cable example, and also showing a 6-pin PCI-Express adapter power cable on the right,

Example of a 4-pin Peripheral power cable,
(Misnomered by many as a 'Molex' power cable. Molex was the first company to make that type of connector. The name stuck, kind of like calling an adjustable open-end wrench a Crescent wrench),

Note the color code of the wires used in a 4-pin Peripheral power cable, and a 6-pin PCI-Express power cable.

Red = 5 Volt wire
Yellow = 12 Volt wire
(All are DC Voltage)
Black = Ground wire. (ALL Black wires are Ground wires)

The 4-pin Peripheral power cable has ONE Yellow 12 Volt wire.
The 6-pin PCI-Express power cable has TWO Yellow 12 Volt wires.

The most power that a PCI-Express x16 expansion slot can deliver, is 75 Watts.

"This cable is used to provide extra 12 volt power to PCI Express expansion cards. PCI Express motherboard slots can provide a maximum of 75 watts."

"The older 6 pin version officially provides a maximum of 75 watts (although unofficially it can usually provide much more)"

The ATI FirePro V7800 graphics card requires 150 Watts by itself.

The PCI-Express x16 expansion slot CANNOT deliver the recommended power (Wattage) needed, therefore an external power cable capable of delivering 75 Watts is needed.

What happens if you just use ONE 4-pin Peripheral power cable, in a 6-pin PCI-Express adapter power cable?

The PCI-Express x16 expansion slot contact pins -> BURN

The gold plated contact pins on the bottom of the graphics card -

The connection on the graphics card for the 6-pin PCI-Express power cable - BURNS

The contact pins in the 6-pin PCI-Express adapter power cable -

If it is too bad, and cannot be remedied by cleaning, the motherboard is TOAST, and so is the graphics card.

Install NX1101

I hope you know what you have bought and what you have (computer) are compatible. since you did not mention what computer you are trying to install this into, I will provide generic instructions.

1. remove all cables from rear of computer. remove cover from computer. Side panel or top cover, sometimes all covers have to be removed on some cases.
2. using a #1 philips screw driver or #5 torx driver remove the small screw from one of the case slots covers near an empty PCI connector on the motherboard. You find those near the place you plug in your video cable. Don't loose the screw.
3. align the new PCI card with the PCI slot and gently push straight down until the card is seated, you have to also align the metal alignment frame with the empty slot you removed from step 2. (if you removed the wrong blank, no problem, just remove the next one over and put that one where you removed the earlier one.) Now put in the screw that you saved from step 2. tighten.
4. Replace cover. Reconnect cables. Power back up.

New motherboard GA-p67x-ud3-b3 no video on boot

  1. 1 x PCI Express x16 slot, running at x16 (PCIEX16)
    * For optimum performance, if only one PCI Express graphics card is to be installed, be sure to install it in the PCIEX16 slot.
  2. 1 x PCI Express x16 slot, running at x8 (PCIEX8)
    * The PCIEX8 slot shares bandwidth with the PCIEX16 slot. When the PCIEX8 slot is populated, the PCIEX16 slot will operate at up to x8 mode.
  3. 3 x PCI Express x1 slots
    (All PCI Express slots conform to PCI Express 2.0 standard.)
  4. 2 x PCI slots

I having lg dvd drive,how to connect to mother board,but the edi i cable is not suited

As far as I understand you have an older PC with IDE slots only and your LG DVD drives have the SATA(serial ATA) connections.
You can purchase a PCI SATA controller card as shown in the diagram below. Simply plug it into a PCI slot in your motherboard and plug your DVD drive into the SATA card.

Just installed mobo ms-7091 m atx but find it as no video out ports how do i get a picture.i know its old but its my first attempt at building pc can i just install a graphics card.

I found the user manual here :
Your motherboard provides 1 pci-express x16 slot, so you will need to install a pci-express video card.
Try to get a video card that doesn't need to be powered by the power supply. There are some out there that don't need to be powered, but .....
Most, but not all, pci-e video cards need to be plugged into your main computer power supply to work. If your power supply was designed to power a pci-e video card, it will have a 6 pin pci-e power connector to connect to a pci-e video card. If your power supply doesn't have this connector, you should replace the power supply with one with the pci-e power connector.

Cant get sound


This can often be as simple as the speakers being unplugged, plugged into the wrong jacks, or powered off, so don't overlook the obvious and check to be sure. Also check the volume controls in Windows or your application to see that they are turned up and not muted. When you are sure the volume is turned up, the speakers have power and are plugged in, and the speaker configuration is correctly identified in Windows (some audio hardware uses a proprietary mixer control for this job), you need to verify whether the problem is with the speakers or the sound card. Connect different known-good speakers and see whether they work. If they don't, the issue is in the sound card-possibly the configuration of the card is incorrect or the card itself is defective. The first thing to try is clearing the ESCD in the BIOS Setup. This essentially forces the plug-and-play routines to reconfigure the system, which can resolve any conflicts. If this doesn't help, try removing and reinstalling the sound card drivers. Finally, if that doesn't help, physically remove and replace the card from the system. You might try replacing it first in the same slot and then in a different slot because timing issues can sometimes exist from one slot to the next. If that doesn't work, you must try replacing the card. If the sound "card" really isn't a card but is integrated into the motherboard, first try the ESCD reset and driver re installation. Then, if that doesn't work, you have to try disabling the integrated sound and perhaps installing a replacement card.

I hope one of these solutions help.

Hi! I am running Windows XP 64 OS on a Intel D975xbxlkr motherboard. I need to replace the pci express graphics card. One that will be compatable with the OS and motherboard. I am not gamer Any...

Everything on the Intel D975XBXLKR motherboard is 64-bit. The Processor, and Northbridge chipset included.

The Northbridge chipset handles the Processor, Ram Memory, and high-speed graphics.

AGP and PCI Express is high-speed graphics.
A graphics card plugged into a PCI slot (White) or using Integrated (OnBoard) graphics is NOT high-speed graphics.

The Northbridge chipset for an Intel D975XBXLKR motherboard is an Intel i975X.
(The i stands for Intel)

ALL PCI-Express graphics cards are compatible with a 64-bit O/S.

What you may be concerned with, is whether the PCI Express technology used on your motherboard is PCI Express 1.1, or PCI-Express 2.0

It is PCI-Express 2.0 technology that is used.

[Doesn't matter anyway. PCI-Express 2.0 technology is Backward Compatible with PCI-Express 1.1 technology.
A graphics card based on PCI-Express 2.0 technology will work on a motherboard with PCI-Express 1.1 technology.
You just won't get the full capabilities of the graphics card.
You probably won't notice either ]

A recommendation for your perusal;


Yes this is a type of gamer graphics card, and I read your requirement.
My argument is the quality for the price.
Even if you do not game your graphics will be superlative.
Excellent graphics on a computer makes a world of difference.
This graphics card will work with a 350 Watt power supply.
