Hi. Im currently using a PC with the following specs: Pentium 4 3.0 Ghz processor, 512 DDR RAM, 80 Gig HD, ECS Elitegroup P4M800PRO-M3 motherboard. The PC has no video card when I bought it and only runs with Integrated UniChrome Pro 3D/2D Graphics & Video Controller. According to the motherboard manual, it supports for AGP 8X/4X, AGP v3.0 with 1.5V. To enjoy games, I recently bought Asus N6200 128 MB, 64 bit AGP videocard. I installed it as well as the driver, but the graphics and icons that appear in the monitor are blurred, or what PC technicians call "garbage" (from the desktop, the start menu, control panel icons, virtually everything). I brought the video card back to the store to check if its defective but it runs perfectly well when they tested it in front of me in their PC. They advised me to adjust the "hertz" in the Monitor in Properties-Settings-Advanced window. I tried all the adjustments (60 hertz, 70 hertz, 72 hertz, 75 hertz, 85 hertz), so with the resolution options, but the same problem persists. Please advice what to do. Thanks!
Re: How to properly install Asus N6200 AGP video card
Set refresh to 60hz Set color to highest position. If this is an LCD, set it to the highest resolution If this is a 15" or 17" CRT, set resolution to 1024x768. If this is a 19" CRT, set resolution to 1280x1024.
Also, do not use the drivers on the CD. Go too nvidia.com and download the latest there.
Also, if you can get into the BIOS, try to disable the on board graphics if you see an option for it.

Hi patto1974, this is a good Model Graphics Card, for the ASUS Motherboard that you have. ASUS is one of the leading Manufacturers in "Gaming Computers; so you want to have a Graphics Card to compliment the system. This is the (Model): "HIS- H467QS1GHA Radeon HD 4670 IceQVideo Card 1GB GDDR3 AGP, DVI, VGA,HDMI Item#: H231-4678 ' Model#: H467QS1GHA." You can find this "Model at Tiger Direct, along with other models. Use AGP x8 as the reference search!
The GeForce FX5500 is an AGP Card (which is WAY outdated). Your board has a PCI-Express x16 slot (which is a good thing) so if you are planning to play games in the ilk of the NFS series, you can get an nVidia GT, GTS or GTX series card (I only assume you plan to get an nVidia-branded card; you still have options of purchasing ATI 4000- to 5000-series cards as well). these cards serve the purpose of entry-level to mid-range games. The only limitation of your rig would be the processor since it's a single core; but with 3 GHz & 2GB of RAM, you can play almost the entire NFS series up to Undercover, Shift & World. I'm not sure about Shift 2 & The Run: I think they require 2 cores at least.

Hello. Looking at your specs, I assume that a Pentium 4 is not enough to run these kinds of games, so the overwhelming amount of data going through the cpu may have been causing your system to overheat. Do these steps: (1) Uninstall and then re-install your graphics card driver, if problem persists, go to number 2 (2) Try playing around with the ATI Catalyst settings, set everything there to default (3) If problem still persists, then I -am- sure that your PC and/or graphics card is way too overheated, in this case: (a) I recommend getting a heat-monitor (doesn't come cheap though) for your PC, to keep yourself notified of the temperatures of your PC (b) Try buying more fans and if you can afford it get a water-cooling system
Above all, if you can afford a better -Gaming- PC then I'd suggest that, because your system isn't really that great for new games.
Here are the requirements for the game. What graphics card are you trying to use? If your PC doesn't meet the specs, you may have to consider upgrading the RAM and graphics card. MINIMUM REQUIREMENTS Assassin's Creed Processor: Dual core processor 2.6 GHz Intel Pentium D or AMD Athlon 64 X2 3800+ RAM: 2 GB Video Card: 256 MB DirectX 10.0-compliant video card or DirectX 9.0-compliant card with Shader Model 3.0 or higher Sound Card: DirectX 9.0 or 10.0 compliant sound card HDD Space: 12GB DirectX Version: DirectX 10.0 RECOMMENDED REQUIREMENTS Assassin's Creed Processor: Intel Core 2 Duo 2.2 GHz or AMD Athlon 64 X2 4400+ or better RAM: 3GB Video Card: 512 MB Card Sound Card: 5.1 Sound Card HDD Space: 12GB DirectX Version: DirectX 10.0
Asus is a Solid MotherBoard manufacturer of mother boards. If you are looking for an add-on graphics card (I'm assuming you want to do some gaming), You would want to upgrade the memory for that motherboard to at least 1GIG which can be found here.
Graphics cards wise, I wouldn't advise anything higher then a $100 card... As that motherboard only supports 4x AGP (The type of connection your video card would use) and to get more for what you pay for, you really need a motherboard with an 8x AGP slot to get 100% of what you pay for. A Radeon 9950 at around $92 is the most you would want to put into a system that currently has a p4 2.66 ghz.
Yes you can run the AGP version of the Radeon 1650 pro on your system. It is always best & recommended to upgrade memory in pairs. You could upgrade to `gb by purchasing a 1 gb kit which would be 512 x 2. That way you have a matching pair of RAM modules. As for a cpu upgrade you can go to the Asus website and see what cpu's are supported by your motherboard. Hope this helps & please remember to rate my answer. Thanks.
You could try with reinstalling the drivers for the graphic card. Another problem could be that you don't have all the codecs needed (But it doesn't usually freeze windows, only the software). Try downloading a codec pack from the following site:
