Can i add 2 graphics card in asus P5G41C-M LX ? now i have nvidia GTS 450 graphics card.. plz help.....

Hello there,
*********** board has an Integrated Intel GMA X4500 graphics, maximum shared memory of 1G, it should be automatically disabled if the pcie slot detects a video card but some mother board embedded gpu runs with the pcie card unless disabled in the bios.
Do you have plans on running a SLI (Scalable Link Interface) linking two or more gpu to produce a single output on *********** board. why SLI? because you already hae a GTS 450 GPU but you cant do this configuration because *********** board has a single pcie slot.
If you have plans on running a pci gpu with your GTS 450 it should, but if you encounter any problem try manually assigning IRQ's and resources through the BIOS? I don't have this specific board.

Hopefully this information helps.
Thanks you for using FixYa.

No display when starting after installing in new machine. I bought TWO ECS MCP61M-M3 motherboards for my kids for Christmas and have the same problem with BOTH. This is in a completely new computer build....

First thing I would do is try using the monitor on another working computer to see if it works. If so, you have eliminated that as an issue.

Kind of hard to fathom that you got two fubar mo bo's but as they stay in the street, sh-- happens. However, The lack of a beep means that the bios is not posting. When you turn on a computer, the bios does a check of internal components and environment - if all is ok, it beeps and then has the hard drive install the operating system into the computer's memory. And if something is wrong, the bios will usually give out certain beeps that are coded such as when you have bad memory, no memory, etc. But you are getting zippo, and no video at all on your monitor - this is one of the few times you wish you had the blue screen of ***** because with that at least you know your hardware is ok but your software has an issue.
The conditions you have reported would seem to indicate that the bios chips on both units are corrupted and not working. U might also make sure that the memory chips are good. A bad chip, not a missing chip, will sometimes prevent the mo bo from booting up.

If you also remove all the memory and turn on the witch, if the bios is working it will beep like crazy. If nada, bios is dead.

If boards are new as you indicate I would return for exchange.

Make sure it is the correct ram for your computer. If you just added one ram chip then try swapping them and make sure they have a tight fit.

To test the new chip replace the old one with it and turn on your machine. If it doesn't see it then it is either bad or not the correct one.

Let me know how it goes.

Hi eakesj:
A number of things here should be checked.
First shut down and remove all cards, and power connections to all the drives such as cdroms, hard drives.
The power supply should also be looked at and tested for correct voltages on each wire. This can be done with a voltage meter.
Turn on the power and see if you can get the machine to start to the bios screen. (this will work if you have a video processor on board, if you have a video card, you will need it to use the monitor).
If that will not work, then you have more problems than you thought at the beginning.
If the mother board will not work at this point, then you have problems with either the mother board or the cpu processor. There is a possibility that there are problems with the memory modules.
So, if you have only one memory module, then I would remove the memory, carefully clean the contacts, (a clean pencil eraser can work, if you are careful, and do not press very hard) and then plug the memory back in and try again. Also if you have extra modules of the same type, try one for testing.
If you are still having the same problems, then the mother board or the cpu is the problem. At this point you should consider if you want to continue and repair or buy another mother board of the same size. If you buy another kind of mother board, remember you will have to re-install your operating system over the original one to get the complete setup and the bios to work correctly with it. Many times this can be done, but you risk losing data (you will lose all data in MY DOCUMENTS), and may have to completely re-install the OS. You may want to install the drive in another computer as a slave and back up any data you want to save before you proceed.
If you decide to continue with your original mother board, and still have problems, then the cpu or the mother board is suspect. To test the cpu, either test your board with another cpu which is compatible, or check the mother board with another mother board of the same exact model.
Hope you find the problem.

¿Could it work with 2 Cards RAM of 1G/800? ¿Could PC work with this mother board and 2 Cards RAM of 1G/800?

That's a pretty big jumb from 667 to 800MHz. (Motherboard does not support 800MHz).
Manual says:
This motherboard accommodates two memory modules. It can support two 240-pin
DDR2 667/533/400. The total memory capacity is 2 GB.

Yet, ECS web site says it supports up to 4 GB.

BIOS for 945GCT-M/1333 (PCB:3.x) version 08/07/18 does not include information pertaining to increased memory speed up to 800MHz. (Bios link).
