You should buy an AGP graphics card instead of a PCI X16.
Check the link and you will see the specification.

    AGP and PCI Xpress are technology standards for different graphics cards.

    AGP is an older technology as compared to PCI-Xpress. But because your motherboard supports the AGP cards, walk upto the shop and tell them you need an AGP graphics card. Buy Nvidia or ATI. Both are nice.

You can install a video card in the AGP expansion slot to replace the faulty on-board video. When you connect the monitor to the new video card it should boot uo with the generic VGA video driver, then you need to install the video driver (CD) that was supplied with the video card, then you can the screen resolution to 1024X768 or higher to suit your tastes.

The P-4's are still great computers but they are getting old and the drivers are becoming hard to find. I have one also. GA81915ME and almost impossible to find anything for it.

The quickest solution to your problem is just buy a reasonable priced Graphics Card. They start at about $30 or less if you look on the internet. You probably have the AGP and PCI slots for VGA ad on Cards. AGP is headed towards obsolete since the new computers do not come with that kind of slot any longer

Asrock K7VM3 mother board with AMD Athlon 2600+ processor.
The Motherboard is having a AGP slot which says to use AGP with 4X and 1.5 V
Can someone suggest the market products available
when I contact the technical team of Asrock. they responded as below:
The AGP slot on K7VM3 is the standard AGP x8 slot , as long as the VGA card you want to buy is standard AGP VGA card , K7VM3 can support the standard AGP VGA card.
Or , you can double check your question with your VGA card vender before you buy it .

I`ve just bought a graphics card and i am struggling to install it in the mother board


hi this sounds like you may have bought the wrong type of graphics card for your motherboard, depending on the age of your motherboard they have changed over from AGP to PCI-e or even ePCI-e now if you have a slot that looks just like a PCI expansion slot at the top on its own away from the other ones, this will indicate a PCI-e or ePCI-e slot, if you have a brown slot at the top of the other ones this will be a AGP slot, just in case you have the right card, for the right slot, there is a locking clip at the end of the AGP slot that you have to pull to one side to put it in check to see if this is the case, then just do that.........hope this helps

Can a R9550 Sapphire graphics card fit to optiplex 170L


It is possible you can etheir find an agp of the appropriate generation for your video card and attempt to solder it into the board. Even then you will need to re-program the bios to recognize it. Would be very difficult to do though as you would need to know how to code the eprom in machine language.

Upgrading my fujitsu amilo pro v2010


Hi Brian,
It's not a problem as u think..
Yes your Ram is 256 M.B // but your Vga Card is built in the mother board with 64 M.B ..so it's share the Vga card Memory from ur basic ram (64 - 256 = 190~192 M.B) .
So u just need to increase ur rams by new one or replace this ur current ram by 2g.byte ram .

best luck.
