    CONNECT 3D RADEON 9550 256MB display problem

    That graphics card i'm afraid is not good for todays games, same thing goes for your pentium 4. A driver update may fix your problem but that card and cpu need changing, probably a new motherboard would be needed also to fit a pci express graphics card along with a core 2 duo processor.

    Depends on the video card ,it might require more power ,200w is fine for onboard but add other components and the system needs more power.
    Disconnect the harddrive or CD ROM drive and see if the system will start.
    If it starts then you will need more power 300-400w at least but shuttle power supplies can be expensive to get.

    Ati radeon 9550 agp with pinnacle pctv hd problem please help

    Try to put it on another pci slot. if you are using the one right under the agp, then that is your culprit.  the agp and the top pci slot share video resources.  just put it on another pci slot, if you have to swap another non-video related card to the one just beneath the agp slot.  Hope this helps.

    Video card

    The MSI KT4V motherboard is an AGP board supporting 4x/8x AGP. You cannot use a newer PCI-Express Video Card, however an Nvidia GeForce FX 5500 either PCI or AGP will run just fine in it. The NVidia FX 5500 doesn't come in PCI-E. Additionally The ATI Radeon 9550 doesn't come PCI-E so you should be safe with AGP versions of either. I should note however, that you'll get better performance out of the ATI Radeon 9550 as opposed to the NVidia FX 5500.

    I hope this answers your question,

    Intel P$ 1.8 mhz on a D845HV/D845WN board

    Before removing your current card swap video outputs on the PC. If currently connected to the VGA output switch to the HDMI connector AT the video card. Use the HDMI to VGA adapter that came with the video card. Check & see if the display loads Pc starts. Taking the information directly from your motherboard manual pg. 25, your AGP video can only run at, AGP supporting 1.5 V 4X AGP cards. The 9600pro runs at 8x & it is not backwards compatible. (able to run at either 8x or 4x). You could run the Sappire ATI Radeon 256MB 9550 DDR AGP 4x/8x 1.5volt card.
    Here is one site:
    When you do get the video card be sure to set your bios AGP to the correct size as listed in your manual pg. 109 subsection 4.4.7
    I hope this helped.

    Grapics card


    Most current AGP video cards are now 8X and they will still work with your motherboard but will just be limited to 4X. Trying to find a 4X might be time consuming whereas using an 8X downgraded to 4x would be comparatively easier and faster.

    Additionally most Video cards will work under XP with the appropriate drivers but Vista has a limited list of compatible Video cards.

    Hope that this be of some help/idea. Pls post back how things turned out or should you need additional information.

    Good luck and kind regards.
