A while ago I had changed the display on on the system and was using a pci graphics card now when going to the on board graphics for a reinstall of windows the monitor displays nothing but flickering blocks bouncing all over the screen.
Is there a way to reset to default? Maybe a jumper or something?

Go into the device manager find the card you do not want to use then disable it do not delete it. Restart the computer making sure that your display is plugged in you want to use and it should show up. The way your doing it is allowing both monitors to or both drivers are active. John
Go to page 2-30 section 2.4.5 in your manual. If you are using the onboard graphics for your display set this to [PCI]. If you are using the PCI-E video card, set the bios to [PCI-E]. Save & exit the bios. You should have display after the system re-boots. If you still have no display & you are 100% sure your monitor functions than the video controller on the board is bad. This can not be repaired.
Hi there. I'm working on the assumption that the graphics card is a PCI Express card. Remember that if you are swapping from on-board graphics to a card you have to go into the BIOS and tell the machine that the primary graphics adapter is AGP/PCI Express. Plug the VGA cable into the on-board graphics port, start the computer and enter the BIOS, tell the computer to use the AGP/PCI card as primary, press F10, save the changes and exit the bios. The computer will try and restart so let it boot to post and turn it off, then put in your card and try to boot again. Please post back if you need more help or advice.
Hi Keith, the Intel D845GVAD2 board uses an integrated graphics card for video & also uses your system memory to function. Suggest, you remove the system memory & clean the contacts with alcohol. (Allow time for the alcohol to dry). Blow the memory slots out with canned air to remove any dust build up. Reseat your memory & boot the system. (No display)? From your description it sounds like the integrated graphics controller may be bad. The only way to test this would be to add a PCI video card to the system. The board’s bios uses auto detect. If you add a PCI graphics card to the system the bios should auto detect the PCI video card & load display. There is a chance that the controller is too damaged & the bios will not see the PCI graphics add in card. In this case the board would be considered bad. If you have a local computer shop or know of someone who may (have a known to be good) PCI video card, you can ask to borrow it & test your system for video display. Here is a link to an inexpensive PCI card: http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/SearchTools/item-details.asp?EdpNo=2174312&CatId=695
If you installed an AGP graphics card before your fist boot of the system, you will not receive display. By default the onboard graphics is set to boot display. (If this is the case, remove the AGP graphics card & boot the system). The Asus P4SGX-MX can only use a 4x AGP 1.5volt (only) card. There is an order of sequences to perform before installing/ adding an AGP graphics card on to the board when the board also uses an integrated graphics card. First, shut down the system & unplug the power supply from the PC. Connect your monitor to the VGA port at the rear of the board. Remove the AGP card. Re-connect the power supply & boot the system. You should have display? Re-boot the system. As the system starts up press the delete key on the keyboard every 2 seconds. The bios main menu will load. (Open your manual). Go to section 2.4.3, page 2-20 under Advanced, PCI configuration. Set Primary VGA bios to [AGP VGA Card]. Save the bios & exit. The system will auto restart. Press & hold the power on/ off button on the PC case until the system shuts off. Unplug the power cord from the PC. Insert the AGP card into the AGP slot. Connect your monitor to the AGP card. Check all internal data & power cables, (Incase something came loose). Re-connect the power cord & boot the system. You should have display! Install your video software. If your using the integrated VGA PCI graphics card, go over the bios settings page 2-18 & 2-20.
When adding a new graphics card (Your's being a PCI-Express), you must change a bios setting under the title " Advanced " section. Open you're M2N-MX manual & turn to page 2-21. You need to change the boot order for you're graphics to list,
[PEG/PCI]. Change Initiate Graphic Mode Select to [Disable].
These changes stop the onboard graphics card from loading & allow the PCI-Express card to load. The issue of possible motherboard overheating can be caused by many things. Here is a list of things to check.
1). Check the CPU heat-sink fan. Make sure the fan blades are
free from dust build up. Check fan speed in bios (Its RPM will be listed). It should be running a min of 2300 RPM.
2). Also in the bios is Hardware monitor. By booting into the bios go to this & watch the temp of CPU & motherboard. If either is getting too hot suggest you add a side case 3" fan to the system to help lower the CPU & motherboard temp.
Hi Harikris, no you can not install just any graphics card. You're Intel D845GLLY board uses an onboard graphics card. (It's an AGP graphics card). If it's you're intention to install a new graphics card you must use a PCI graphics card. (Understand that the AGP onboard graphics is faster than a PCI graphics card). However, the PCI cards do use their own memory. (Which fee’s you're system memory to run windows. The Intel D845GLLY has 4 PCI (White) slots, onboard. You can add a video card into the system. You're onboard video card does use you're system memory to function. If you're PC has 512MB of system memory & you're video card is set to use 128MB of memory. Than you're system is left to run with 128MB. One would think you're system is running a little slow. The Intel D845GLLY motherboard can use up to 256MB of system memory. You can set the amount of system memory in the bios as shown on page 49, table 18. In you're manual. If you do not have you're manual you can download it from here: http://www.intel.com/support/motherboards/desktop/d845glly/sb/cs-008853.htm May I suggest you increase you're system memory to 1GB. Than increase you're graphics memory to 256MB. You're system will run faster & so will you're graphics card. These older Intel motherboards require memory current for you're board. Click this link: http://www.memory-up.com/Memory/IntelD12696.html If you still feel that you want to use the slower PCI graphics card you can choose from any listed on this link: http://www.newegg.com/product/ProductList.aspx?N=2000380048+1069609642&Submit=ENE&SubCategory=48&nm_mc=KNC-GoogleAdwords&cm_mmc=KNC-GoogleAdwords-_-NA-_-NA-_-NA You will also need to change a setting in you're bios to boot to the PCI card instead of the AGP onboard card.
