I have three motherboards, 1 is a MSI K8N SLI-F, the other two are both MSI K8n Neo4/SLI.
I have two NX7800GTX-VT2D256E, running in SLI mode.
When I install the video cards on the Neo4, Windows will not boot up, and at times, the bios wont post. I have reinstalled windows, ran it in safe mode, even tried to boot off of a Ubuntu and Arklinux boot CD to see if i could get at least a GUI to load. Nothing. I tried each video card in single mode, in both slots, and both of them together in each slot in SLI mode. Nothing.
I figure its the motherboard, because two video cards cant be broken. I put them into the other motherboard, same style neo4, same errors. I go out and buy a MSI K8N SLI-F. I put both cards in. Computer boots and installs windows and runs fine.
My K8N SLI-F is now broken, due to god knows what. Wont powercycle on after i moved into my new house. So, I want to use my old K8N Neo4. unfortunatly, i can only use it with my old 6800 GT, since the 7800 GTX dont work.
I have been trying to solve this one for at least a year. No one else seems to have a problem, at least that i know of. You would think a MSI product would be compatible with another MSI product. I am pretty convinced that the NX7800GTX-VT2D256E is incompatible with the K8N Neo4/SLI.
What's the specs on your power supply. For SLI you need a good quality 500W+ PSU with lots of current on the 12V rails. Remember that all the drives, memory, fans, cpu, etc will use a lot of power, if there is not enough capability in your PSU, the voltage may drop low enough to stop it starting up.

You could try using the driver for the FX5200 directly from Nvidia. Maybe the MSI drivers are causing the issue. If not try using the video card in another computer and see if it works. Without testing the card or the board it is hard to say. Sometimes a weak powersupply can cause problems like this. Also make sure if there is a power connection to the video card that it is hooked up. Some video cards need additional power plug hooked up.
I cant be sure since I can't see the error during bootup. But its highly possible that you forgot to plug in a extra power cord that goes into the video card. at the upper corner of the video card. you will see a black plug with 4 pins on it that needs a power source. You have that from your power supply that normally people use it for a floppy drive. Plug that in here and that should work. If it still doesn't, give me the exact error during bootup and I'll help you from there.
Hi, you can upgrade your processor to a 3200+ or a 3600+ but the problem is availability and it should be socket 754 pin compatible... regarding the HD3650 card...as long as its aa AGP card you should not have any problems.. also check your SMPS (power supply) it should be atleast 350(V)..
firstly you need to make sure *********** board has a PCIe slot or a AGP... this is where your ATI HD3650 will go...see the graphic 512mb has nothing to with your main system RAM which is also 512mb.. so they wont be any problems as such and both will work together without any problems... but i suggest you to add another 512mb to your system RAM.. the difference between DDR and DDR2 is that... DDR2 is a bit newer and is faster in terms of memory read/write/access... do let me know if u have any futher problems....
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.
