REPLACEMENT GRAPHICS CARD

I have a P4VMM2 motherboard with VIA P4M266 North Bridge and VIA VT8233 South Bridge chipset & it has one universal 4x AGP slot. I'm looking for a replacement for my old Nividia GeForce2 MX400/400 video card. Can anybody recommend any existing graphics card that has been tested in this type of motherboard?

Have a compaq computer 2008 , needed a video card ,have one cannot figure out where it should be in the back of the computer, serial # 1313CL . MODEL PRESARIO NEED SOME INTRUCTIONS. IT IS A AGP 8X VIDEO...


That would be Compaq Presario SR1313CL desktop computer.

(He says quietly so as to not offend.
Compaq = Computer manufacturer name.
Presario = Model Name
SR1313CL = Model Number.
S/N is next to the Serial Number. Do NOT give out the serial number on an open forum. Only to HP/Compaq representatives, or an authorized HP representative)

Let's take a look at the motherboard, and let me show you where the AGP style of graphics card plugs in.
(Accelerated Graphics Port)

http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/document?docname=c00069442&tmp_task=prodinfoCategory&lc=en&dlc=en&cc=us&lang=en&product=447943

Please scroll down the page to the Illustration, and photo of the motherboard.

In the illustration look under the chipset labeled - VIA KM400A
The long rectangle with - Accelerated Graphics Port is where the AGP graphics card plugs into.

Now match this up to the motherboard photo.

You'll see the whitish rectangular shape with a lot of holes in it towards the top of the motherboard.
(Has a square hole in it)
This is the Processor socket.

Down below the Processor socket is a square silvery looking object with ribs going across it.
The silvery looking square object is a Heatsink. It is sitting on the Northbridge chip.

[The motherboard chipset for this motherboard, consists of a Northbridge chip, and a Southbridge chip.
The Northbridge and Southbridge chip are made by VIA.

The Northbridge chip is a VIA KM400A. The Southbridge chip is a VIA VT8237

Chip and Chipset are alternate terms used for I.C.
Integrated Circuit ]

Below the Northbridge chip's Heatsink is a long Brown slot.
This is the AGP expansion slot.

'Mr.Windy' here, but if I may.

1) Motherboard Specifications:
Scroll back up the page until you come to the heading on the left side - Expansion Slots
Look to the right.

Three PCI slots
One AGP 8x/4x (1.5V)

One AGP 8x/4x means the type of AGP expansion slot you have, will accept either an AGP 4X style of graphics card, or an AGP 8X style of graphics card.

1.5V stands for 1.5 Volt

This is how you know the AGP 8X graphics card will,
1) Fit in the AGP expansion slot on the motherboard
2) Be supported by the BIOS program of the BIOS chipset, on the motherboard.

Did this computer already have an AGP graphics card in it, and are you replacing it?

Replacing because the old AGP graphics card,
A) Is No good?
B) You have a better AGP graphics card?
C) The computer was using Integrated Graphics, and you want to install an AGP graphics card for better graphics performance?

There is criteria to follow before you physically install the AGP graphics card, is why I ask.
Post in a Comment.

No sound after i update my os to xp pro svc pack2


Looking at VIA's page on the P4M266 and scrolling down, it shows you're using South Bridge VT8233/8233A/8233C. Going to VIA Arena and selecting XP, Audio, and VIA AC97 codecs incorporated into VT8233, VT8233A, VT8233C, VT8235 and VT8237/R South Bridges takes me to the audio driver you need. Just click the above link and get it.

Good luck!

Your motherboard only supports AGP. You can use any AGP graphics card that supports up to 4X AGP. nVidia and ATI make great cards as well as other manufacturers that mak boards using nVidia and ATI chipsets. I would recomend a card with at least 512MB of memory onboard. I hope this helps.

Upgrading VIDEO CARD


If your motherboard's graphics slot is AGP and your graphics card is AGP then it should be fine if your motherboard is PCI-E and graphics is PCI-E it also is fine make sure your motherboard and graphics are compatible.
