    THank you shishirgarde :I connected monitor to the new graphics card but it didn't show anything on my mornitor. Btw, I had been looking for the solution from other board. Someone said it caused by PSU. Do you think 350W PSU is enough ? Is the new card compatible with my mainboard 
    Thank you

    PSU 350 W
    Old graphics card: Nvidia geforce 5200 AGP
    New graphics card: Nvidia geforce 6800 xt AGP

  • ag_z May 14, 2009

  • ag_z May 14, 2009

    First I install the new PSU with the new Graphics card. Nothing is show on mornitor.Then, I change graphics card to the old one (but still use the new PSU). My pc has the slower boot time.

No, you dont need any power to the Graphics card.

But make sure that the monitor is connected to the new graphics card that you have installed and not on the on-board VGA card. That should do it for you !

    If you are using 6800 XT, then you at least require a 400 Watts Power supply. The card requires a lot of power which may be a cause of concern.

    Does it power on fine? I mean does it give any beeps or anything like that?

    Also, does it still work fine without the graphics card ?

    So is it working with the new Graphics card? Or it booted slower without the graphics card ?

ASUS P5VD2-X vga

Hello, I am the technician that will be assisting you today. My name is Norman-Wynne Damstra.
Welcome to Fixya, Ichigo.

Since your ASUS mainboard has no onboard VGA graphics adaptor you will need to install the Video/Graphics driver for your Installed Graphics Card.

Find the make and model number of this card and then either place it as a comment to this solution or visit the appropriate manufactures website:

For Geforce graphics:
For ATI/AMD graphics:

The make and model number can be found on the graphics card. Usually printed on a sticker.

Take care!

Graphics card for asus p4p800-mx

Hello there, I will be your technician today. My name is Norman-Wynne Damstra.

Welcome to Fixya!

On the rear of the mainboard, called the Input/Output or I/O you will find a blue VGA port, this is your on-board graphics adaptor/graphics card. Therefore you may use this port to connect your monitor to.

Alternatively if you are looking for a graphics card to fit your computer mainboard, you will need to install one that uses the PCI slot. That is the White slot. You may install the graphics card in any of the three available PCI slots.

You could contact your computer store and ask them if they have a PCI graphics card, or search E-bay or the like for a PCI graphics card. Brands by Nvidia or AMD/ATI radeon will work. A Nvidia Geforce 5200 or 5500 may do the trick, usually 128mb versions.

Take care!

I have a new geforce 6200 evga hd card and have installed it in a PCI slot after first having disabled my ASUS integrated ATI 3300 video through the device manager before powering down and installing the...


I am presuming that the mainboard is an Asus model with integrated VGA.

In order to perform the following steps you may have to remove your new VGA board and reconnect your monitor to the mainboard VGA in order to have a display on your monitor.

If your new VGA board is an AGP or PCI express, connecting your monitor to the new VGA board should have been detected and applied the VGA output through the new board. If the new VGA board is a PCI type then go to the new steps to make changes to your CMOS via the BIOS settings.

If not the Asus mainboard may have to have the CMOS setup change through your BIOS settings.

Upon bootup you should be able to hit the delte key and the BIOS screen should come one.
Scroll down to the a view that will show "Onboard Settings" or similar wording.
Select and disable the Asus onboard VGA or video.

If problem still persist, then go to the Assus.Com web site for support on your model Asus mainboard for the maunual, or trouble shooting questions on settings.

Good Luck

With ASUS M2N-MX mainboard, ATI Radeon 7000 Series problem.

Your Motherboard has an onboard video chipset made by Nvidia. Nvidia and ATI have a history of not playing nice with each other.

I have 2 possible solutions for you.

1.) Remove the Radeon card and use the Nvidia onboard card (Essentially a Geforce 6100)

2.) Enter the bios (Usually done by hitting <Delete> or <F12> while the computer is booting up) Your Motherboards manual can tell you for certain. Then find the options for onboard video and disable it.

Then boot up the PC, When it say starting Windows press <F8> to bring up the windows boot menu. Select "Start in Safe mode" Once this loads up open the device manager, look under "Display adapters" find the entry for the Nvidia adapter, right click on it and select either "Uninstall" or "Disable this device"

Which you choose depends on your personal preference Whether you like Nvidia or ATI boards better.

If it makes your decision easier a Geforce 6100 is roughly equivalent to a Radeon 8500 in performance.

I hope this helps

Is my Motherboard compatible?

Try to find out what the AGP voltage is on the motherboard.
Some graphics cards use 1.5 volts and some use 3.
If it's a 1.5 volt AGP slot and you plug a 3 volt graphics card in, it either wont work or you could permanantly damage both card and motherboard.
