Hello there please guys help me I bought ecs elitegroup motherboard but it doesn't detect my g210 invidia geforce after plug my graphic cart it shows strange lines

suspect you may need to disable the motherboard built in graphics card and tell it to use PCI graphics adapter otherwise an interrupt conflict in CPU and possible conflict as both devices compete for same computer resources.

Motherboard problem

The video card that you choose for your system largely depends on your requirements. If you use applications that are very heavy on the graphics, then you should consider a PCI express video card with SLI capabilities. However, if the most graphics intensive thing you plan on doing on your computer is watching a usb 3.0 pci cardDVD movie, then you don't really need one that's very powerful, any standard one should PCI Express card do. In many cases, you might even be able to make do with the card that came with your system.
If you're interested in purchasing a new video card, then it's important that you examine the current capabilities of your motherboard. usb 3.0 pci express card The older motherboards support only one graphics card at a time through an AGP slot. Motherboards today do not support AGP cards. Today, the new standard is PCI express, usb 3.0 pci card which has recently replaced AGP as the favoured graphics

Mother board not seeing my pcix card

Hi crazieedd, the answer to you're problem is this. Go to ECS's web site. Click on this link for you're GeForce6100SM board.
Another user I tried to help did have the same problem as you. Though ECS does not mention there is a fix for this issue. ECS did email the user to update the bios file. (I looked at the last 2 bios updates & there is no mention of how to run the PCI-E & disabling the onboard video fix mentioned. According to ECS you are to upgrade the bios file to its most recent. That said, once the bios file has been flashed. (Preferred option is to use a floppy disk). You are to go into the bios to Advanced Chipset Features
Than to, Onboard GPU set this to read, [Enable If no Ext GPU]
Save & exit the bios.
Having this set to, Enable If No Ext GPU & using a PCI-E card plugged in to the system automatically disables the onboard video card. (Don't you just love it when the Mfg does not list this type of major fix)?
Please keep in mind the other user was not running Vista. No one has mentioned to you how bad Vista (any version) is! You may not have any troubles with Vista. Let's hope it stays that way.

Good Luck crazieedd!

Hi, trying to boot from your old drives is the problem.
The Boot sequence for your new board are different from the ol one. Your sequence to get your system going is to load the mobo drivers first, then run your XP disk again and at the second prompt select REPAIR this will run the same as a normal install but should save your existing data and settings.
One problem you may have is activating XP as Microsoft do not approve of multi installs and the new board will show as a different computer.

Mother board bios update

From datasheet on Intel 82865GV: > The 82865GV does not support AGP. ECS use selfmade "AGP-express" port, which isn`t "real" AGP. It is answer that this motherboard need to support videoadapters by BIOS. Recommendation - do not use this motherboard (and other on i865GV chipset) with "external" graphic.
