Question about VisionTek RADEON X1300, (512 MB) AGP Graphic Card

1 Answer

My screen is completely black but i can still see my mouse.

My card is PCI Express, and i think this is the AGP forum, oops. I am not sure what to do. I doubt that d/l new drivers in safemode would do anything. I am affraid my card may be fried. I have tried switching the HDMI cable to the other port, and I still have that problem.

Try uninstalling your current drivers. Download and install new ones from the manufacture's site.
If problem persits, this means that the graphics card itself is fried/damaged.

My son saved up and bought a Gateway SX2855-UB12P. We have upgraded to 8MB of RAM and now are looking to upgrade the video card which currently is a PCI Express x16 Graphics. Given his machine is a en


Hope you mean upgraded ram to 8 GB 8 mb is not much ram to run a computer.

To upgrade your computer's graphics card, unfortunately you can't just simply purchase a card and install it to your computer. Before purchasing a card, you must first confirm what is compatible with your motherboard. Graphics cards use either AGP or PCI Express technology. Many older computers use AGP. AGP cards can vary in version and bandwidth, whereas PCI Express cards can vary based on their lane . Moreover, the card itself is not your only consideration when looking to upgrade your computer's graphics. You must also consider the strength of your computer's power supply as well, since most newer cards use a lot of power. Download, install and run SiSoftware's Sandra (see link Below) to find out information on your motherboard. http://download.cnet.com/SiSoftware-Sandra/3000-2086_4-10556571.html Click the "Mainboard Information" icon, then write down the information next to "Manufacturer" and "Model." Navigate to the motherboard manufacturer's website. If you are not sure of the website's URL, enter the manufacturer's name into a search engine to find the company's website. Go to the support page and enter your motherboard's model. Download the motherboard's manual or review the specifications. Search the manual or specifications for "Expansion slot," "AGP" or "PCI Express." If the expansion slot uses AGP, note the version (AGP comes in 1.0, 2.0 and 3.0), as well as the bandwidth (1x, 2x, 4x or 8x). If the expansion slot uses PCI Express, note the amount of lanes (x1, x4, x8 or x16). Search the manual or specifications for "Power," "PSU" or "Power Supply." Write down the power supply's voltage (3.3V, 5V or 12V) and amp rating (designated by "A"). Not all manufacturers list the amp rating in their documentation, so you may need to contact the manufacturer for more assistance. Compare the graphics card you want to buy to the motherboard's expansion slot. AGP cards won't work in motherboards using PCI Express, and vice versa. Similarly, AGP 3.0 cards won't work in motherboards using AGP 1.0. A PCI Express x8 card will not fit in a PCI Express x1 slot. Check the voltage and amperage of the video card to the voltage and amperage on your motherboard. A video card that requires a higher amp rating requires a powerful PSU. Hope this helps.

Use of PCI-e x16 slot for non-video card


...........................................!O_O!...........................................................

WHY would you want to do that?

There is a PCI-Express x1 slot on the motherboard.
Black in color, and in-between the black PCI-Express x16 slot, and a white PCI slot.

Use the PCI-E x1 RAID adapter card in the PCI-E x1 slot, and a PCI-Express graphics card in the PCI-E x16 slot. Sheesh!

A PCI-Express slot is not an evolved PCI slot.
Completely different technologies.

PCI uses a shared Parallel bus architecture, while PCI-Express is based on Serial point-to-point.

So your idea of how to 'fix' your problem, is to use a PCI-E x1 card in a PCI-Express x16 slot, and a PCI graphics card in a PCI slot?

Completely backwards.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Motherboard_diagram.svg

PCI-Express x16 slot uses the same lanes from the Northbridge, as the OnBoard video?

UTTER NONSENSE!

The Northbridge chip handles the Faster capabilities of a computer.
Handles the Processor, Ram Memory, and HIGH-SPEED Graphics.

HIGH-SPEED graphics is the Accelerated Graphics Port (AGP) technology, and the PCI-Express technology.

The Southbridge chip handles the Slower capabilities of a computer.

The PCI bus is one of those slower capabilities handled by the Southbridge chip.

The PCI bus is also a shared bus. This slows data down.
The AGP bus, and PCI-Express bus are Not shared. They also have a direct link to the Northbridge chip.

The PCI Bus has to go through the Southbridge chip, which has to go through the Internal Bus, THEN to the Northbridge chip.

OnBoard video, or Integrated Graphics, uses the PCI bus.
When you inserted the PCI-E x1 RAID card in the PCI-Express x16 slot, and a PCI graphics card in the PCI slot, BIOS just assigned another IRQ for the PCI-Express x16 slot.
(Interrupt Request)

No fancy technology going on there.

Backwards technology going on with a PCI-Express x1 card in a PCI-Express x16 slot, though.

I do not concur, and do not think that is a good solution, Kevin.

My packard bell imedia 3064 computer uses an nec ms-6786 board. does this support AGP or PCI Express for graphics card?


Open the case, and inspect the motherboard.

You should see a few PCI slots (usually WHITE-coloured)
that are identical in shape and location.

You might see one more slot that is offset from the location of the PCI slots, but about the same length of slot.
This will either be an AGP slot, or a PCI-Express slot.

Look at the silk-screened labels near the slot;
it should identify the slot as AGP or PCI-Express.

Inserting GeFroce fx 5200 graphics card!


sorry to say this your dell system only has a X1 vga slot it is not compatible with the card you have.

If you want to use a card you have to go for a new system

Why hardware system may require the installation of new hardware components?


Well there's two reasons. One is that software keeps getting more and more complicated. The other is that with the new technologies come new standards that the old pieces don't conform to and therefore won't work with. I'll use graphics cards as an example.

In the beginning, the IBM PC/XT and its clones had 8-bit bus slots. This is where the video card (such as it was) would be plugged in. As time went by, 16-bit computing came to the consumer market with the advent of the IBM AT (Advanced Technology) and the Intel 80286 CPU. The 8-bit slots now were 16-bit slots called ISA. Fortunately, 8-bit cards continued to function in ISA slots but the 16-bit ISA cards outperformed them and so nobody wanted the 8-bit cards anymore. The same thing happened when the industry advanced again with the 32-bit Intel 80386DX and SX. The bus architecture changed to the 32-bit EISA which again was backwards-compatible with ISA. Things changed during the time of the 486 when the VESA standard appeared. It didn't dominate the market because it didn't have time to. EISA was already entrenched and just as VESA started to catch on, a familiar face appeared. The familiar face was PCI, it was introduced just before the original Pentium and was the fastest bus slot ever seen. The PCI slot dominated for awhile but computing got progressively more graphic intensive and the PCI slot couldn't cope because it is a shared bus (All the PCI slots on the motherboard share bandwidth with each other). AGP was introduced in 1997 (AGP 1x) and got progressively faster with 2x, 4x and finally 8x. PCI-Express v1.0 appeared and immediately offered double the bandwidth of AGP. AGP's days were now numbered. PCI-Express v1.0 was upgraded to PCI-Express v1.1 but even that was soon superceded by PCI-Express v2.0 which again doubled the bandwidth over PCI-Express v1.0/1.1. Although PCI-Express v2.0 is completely backwards compatible with previous versions of PCI-Express, it is not compatible with AGP at all which is why new cards were needed for motherboards with PCI-Express. This was true for EISA/VESA - PCI, PCI - AGP and now AGP - PCI-Express. The slot changed to accomodate new techology and so the cards had to change with it. Similar events occurred with every standard in the computer industry and new products had to be used to match the new and more advanced hardware standards. There's your one-time answer. :-)

I have a intel D865GVHZ motherboard...wanna install graphics card


From what i can find, it doesnt have a agp (like you said) or pci-express slot so you cant install a pci express graphics card.
You could use a pci craphics card but wont be very good,

If you go for a pci card make sure it isnt pci-e

Monitor screen stays blank


HP desktop computer? Change the monitor cable. The cable from the monitor to the computer, may be bad.
Happens.

If this doesn't solve it then I suggest the GPU is bad. Graphics Processing Unit. If you have Integrated Graphics, (Also referred to as 'On-Board'), then I suggest buying an average, inexpensive graphics card, and installing it.
You'll have to see what expansion slot, your computer uses for graphics. It may be a PCI slot, or an AGP slot, or a PCI Express x16 slot.

Clear as mud on that last one? Let me give you some links, that might help clear up what an Expansion slot is, and the three types of expansion slots used for a graphics card.
1.Expansion slot:http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Expansion_slot
2.PCI (local bus):http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/PCI_(bus)
3.AGP:http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/AGP
4.http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/PCI_Express
5.http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Asus_a8n_VMCSM02.jpg
The link above (No.5) shows a photo of an average motherboard. At the top right you will see two White slots. Those are PCI expansion slots.
Below the PCI slots is a PCI Express x16 slot. It is Black in color.

ATI x1650 Pro Stops!?

No video


ok fine i think there exists some problem in the cable connecting from the CPU to the monitor just try removing that & inserting it again ....

if the same problem persists then there may be some problem in the port of the video card just take tester & test is there power supply or not ....

if there is no power supply then some of the capacitor on the video card might have burned out due to this ports will not be working ....

if there is power supply then there will be one IC(integrated circuit ) on the motherboard just near by the AGP or PCI express slot (i think in your motherboard there are 3 IC s near there)
in those 3 IC s if some IC goes means also you will not get the display ...

(the video must be inserted to the PCI express slot or AGP slot only) you must not insert it on PCI slots ...
you make a difference of PCI or AGP slot as this will be only 1 or 2 on every motherboard & it will be smaller in size than the PCI slots & there will be colour difference(may be the PCI slots will be white colour & AGP or PCI express slot in black or brown colour it depends on the motherboard)
check on which slot you have inserted it & insert it correctly if you inserted in some other slots ...

remove the video & insert it again & try check the cables the cable may be loose contact ...

any doubts you can reply me
i am always here to assist you
thank you

I could have swore I purchased an apg 4x video card, that's what my V2 premier,( L4S5MG3 mother board)requires.The nivdia Gforce6200 is 8x/4x will this work? Don't want to open, till sure.


8x and 4x means that the video card is an AGP ( not apg) typo i guess.

If it was PCI or PCI Express, it would say so on the box. Look at *********** board, the video card slot will usually have AGP prined next to it. Also, your old video card may have a sticker on it that says its a BLAH BLAH card with SUCH AND SUCH Megabytes of ram and thats its a AGP or PCI, PCI EXPRESS.

Once you know for sure that the card will work, open her up, install and enjoy.
