Re: regarding graphics

Hey bhoot,

Are you asking about what graphic card you should get? If so, I recommend anything that's geforce 7600GT+.

I recommend nVidia because a lot of games are built for nVidia. I'm not saying ATI is bad, they are good. It's just that you'll run into artifact issues (where you see tears in graphics) with some games if you go with ATI.

Go to sites like,, or to look for a card.

If you have PCI Express, then go with that. If it's AGP, then go with that. It's all based on what your board supports.

If you're looking to run F.E.A.R, Qauke, or Battlefield, you won't need much. I would recommend at least 128mb video on the card you choose, but if you do have PCI express, I would suggest getting a 512mb video card for future gaming.

the geforce 8600GT is a good buy too. Typicall they are around $140, they have 512mb vid and have GDDR3 memory, (good clock speed on those cards). They can run those games no sweat.

Hope this helps.

(Btw, the geforce8600GT is directx 10 compatible)

No video after boot up


Driver: Small piece of software that allows the Operating System to communicate with a device.

The device in question is the graphics chipset.

The Operating System is now Windows 7 64-bit.

You were running Windows XP -> 32bit

(Have you got audio? Sound)

This is why I repeatedly try to tell people;

before trying to upgrade to frickin Windows 7!

Yes sir; sure are.

+ VGA (3)
Suggest use the oldest version -
AMD VGA driver V8 631.0.0

The reason Windows XP blue screened is because the Integrated Graphics of the Asus M4A785TD-V motherboard couldn\'t handle the game.

You need a graphics card. A PCI Express graphics card inserted into the BLUE PCI Express x16 expansion slot, on the motherboard.

(Remember; Install the software F-I-R-S-T, then unplug from power, FOLLOW Anti-Static Precautions; and THEN physically install the graphics card.
Software; The Installation Disk for the graphics card.
Has the Drivers, and user interface.
User Interface: Catalyst Control Center for ATI graphics cards;
Nvidia Control Center for Nvidia graphics cards)

No aero effecst

Make sure you have at least 2GB of Ram Memory, and you need a graphics card. Aeroglass for Vista requires a lot of 'graphics power'.

The motherboard chipset is an Intel 845G.
The Intel 865G has Intel Extreme Graphics, for it's integrated graphics on the motherboard,

Not going to cut it when trying to use Aeroglass.

You can use an AGP 8X graphics card,

This is but one example,

I would also recommend an Intel Pentium 4 processor, not Celeron, and 2GB of 400MHz DDR Sdram ram memory, (PC3200)

Or someday you may wish to use Ubuntu Linux instead, and the Compiz Fusion window manager, instead of Aeroglass,




Jus sayin'.

Can i put a good graphic card on 856g mother board

Actually you can install it but because your board's chipset is very old and weak the power of the new video card will not be used. Any pc that has this board was never designed to be a gaming platform.

Assus 865 mother board sound driver problem for vista

Probably that Vista has installed generic sound drivers. Have a look in Device Manager (On the Start menu Rt click Computer - Manage - Device Manager) and see if any unknown or problem devices showing.

Download and install the proper drivers from Asus or Intel (motherboard chipset is Intel).

Display driver motherboard model is k8v-mx i have vista ultimate and i formatted my system i lost the drivers cd of asus k8v-mx.. i couldnt get the good picture of movies

Here is the chipset driver :
Chipset (vista 32 & 64 bits)

For your graphic drivers i would think that vista has them already but VIA the chipset manufacturer have not made the graphic drivers for Vista.

You can check it out here if you click vista there is no K8M800 driver, if you click XP its there.
VIA driver download link

Also your integrated graphic is really not a very fast card so that could be the issue when you are playing a movie.
That motherboard has an AGP graphic slot so you can always get an upgrade.

Graphics Problem

Yes, you will have very poor 3D unless you get a video card that is better. The integrated graphics are usually only for 2D windows stuff, not games. If you want to get any graphics card, it will be alot faster, and not give you problems. Other then that, there really isn't anything you can do software wise to fix it.
