Incompatible display adapter has been disabled

I have a Mercury PI865GM motherboard and i have a GeForce FX5200 graphics card. I recently installed Windows Vista Ultimate on my system but the motherboard driver CD is not compatible for Vista. I installed most of the drivers through the internet but i could'nt find the display drivers. Now Vista gives me this error message..

At least one display adapter on the system has been disabled because its driver is not compatible with the driver for the VGA adapter.
Intel(R) 82865G Graphics Controller (Microsoft Corporation - XDDM).

Please help me solve this problem...

Re: Incompatible display adapter has been disabled

Ah so you have 2 video adapters in the computer:

1) The one built into the motherboard (and the one vista is complaining about)
2) Your add-in FX-5200

So I assume you have the 5200 drivers already (they shoudl be built into Vista), but just in case:

Now for the on board intel video, I would try these:*&lang=eng

Upgrade k7sem motherboard

Yes, if the video-card is "PCI" or "AGP" (not "PCI-express").

If a motherboard has "built-in" video, enter BIOS SETUP, and either "disable" it, or set the "first" display-device to be add-in video-card.

Can i put nVIDIA geforce 8600 on my p5sd2-vm

Yes, your Asus motherboard will support the Nvidia GeForce 8600 PCI-Express graphics card.
However one thing you should consider. The 8600 card is SLI compatible but the motherboard only has one PCI-E x16 slot.
You will also need to make some changes in your bios.
In order to help you configure your system for a PCI-E graphics follow these steps.
1. Uninstall your current display driver software through windows control panel. Windows may ask you to restart your system, do not restart. Shut windows down which will shut off the system.
2. Unplug the power cable from the system & open your case.
3. Install your 8600 card. (Double check it is installed correctly & if needed has the extra power cord connected to the card.
4. Re-connect the power cord.
5. During boot up enter the bios by pressing the Delete key every couple seconds.
6. Once in the bios click the Advanced tab, see top of page 2-19 in your manual.
7. Than open Onboard Device Configuration
Open North Bridge Configuration, see page 2-22
Change Primary Graphics Adapter to [PCI-E]
Change Internal VGA to [Disable]
Change Share Memory Size to [Disable]

8. Save Bios changes & exit. Your system will auto restart.
Once windows has finished loading install the 8600 driver software & directX 10.0. You can also go to nVidia & download the latest software driver @

Nvidia Geforce FX5200 128mb DDR AGP 8x

Hi, since you mentioned you installed an MSI card & it worked well. I can assume you changed the bios & to boot to the AGP rather than the Integrated 3D video. This is good. Notice the message you got from Nvivia. It could not locate any compatible drivers. This can indacates 1 of 4 reasons.
1. The 5200 was not completely incerted into the AGP slot.
2. The AGP slot is dirty & needs cleaned.
3. Nvidia software was installed but previouse graphics software was not removed (un-installed) before the installation of the nvidia software.
4.The card is bad.
Suggest you download the latest driver software from Nvidia.

No video output

try this -remove the card then restart the pc (if this is xp) start/right click my computer/properties/device manger-look for "display adapters" find the onboard type you have and uninstall it power off then install the new card you might have to look in device manager for something referred to as graphics controller

What graphics card this motherboard will support

Gigabyte did not put a special graphics slot (AGP, PCIe etc) on this corporate series board. It has good internal graphics support. If you would like to run two monitors, it appears that one choice is the CHAINTECH P-FX20 256MB Geforce FX5200 256MB 128-bit DDR PCI Video Card, based upon user reviews at NewEgg. You may need help getting both graphics adapters to operate together. Typically, there is a jumper on the card that disables "Primary VGA" mode. Your OS should boot using the on-board adapter and then you can tell the OS that it should "Extend the Desktop" to the second (PCI) adapter. Your results may vary.
