Re: ax4spe max trouble

Kind of MoBo please.

If all you get is "blinking white line" where does it say the pci card may be a problem?

Some built in hadrware is sometimes listed as a pci device, so it maybe better to check your MoBo drivers which can be downloaded from the vendors site.

You typed this problem, which means you can somehow download the drivers and put them in some kind of media to install them.

More info about your system is needed.

Where can i buy a onchip usb2?

FIC FR33E motherboard?

Reference: Photo

To the far left side of the motherboard, is actually the Bottom of the motherboard, when installed in your computer case.

The two White long expansion slots you see, are PCI expansion slots.
If one is available, (Open), you can use a PCI USB adapter card.
This is but one example,

Seem cheap? Nope. Good quality also. (You can also check the reviews)

Need guidance in installing?
1) Follow Anti-Static Precautions

Anti-Static Precautions:
Your body carries Static electricity. Static WILL fry out (Short Circuit) the delicate hardware components inside the computer.

Computer on a table, computer unplugged from power, computer case open.

[Note* Always unplug the power to a computer AT the surge protector. NOT at the back of the computer. (Power Supply)
You can cause a power surge ]

2) TOUCH an unpainted surface, of the metal frame of the open computer case.
This action will relieve your body of Static.

Should you leave your computer in the middle of working on it, be SURE to Touch the metal frame again, upon your return.

3) Finding an open PCI slot look at the back of the computer. In the metal frame you will see slots going horizontally.
These are Expansion Slots.

You may have an add-on adapter card already installed, in one of the PCI slots.
The expansion slot cover for it is removed.

You should see expansion slot covers however, in the remaining expansion slots on the back of the computer metal framework.
Remove the one that corresponds with the PCI slot you wish to use.

Be aware that the PCI slot will not be directly in line, with the expansion slot.
When installing an add-on adapter card, you will see when the card is inserted in the PCI slot, the metal bracket on the add-on card, lines up with an adjacent expansion slot.

This will make more sense to you once you go to install the card.

[PCI USB adapter card is an add-on adapter card ]

Line the card up in the PCI slot. Note that there is a Locating Lug in the PCI slot, and a matching Locating Notch, on the PCI USB adapter card.

Also, at the same time line up the metal bracket of the PCI USB adapter card, with the metal framework of the computer case at the back.

Gently push the PCI USB adapter card down into the PCI slot.
Fasten the card's metal bracket to the computer's metal framework.

Post the computer manufacturer name, and model number, if you need guidance in opening the computer case. Post in a Comment.

For additional questions please post in a Comment.

What type of video card can I use on this motherboard? D945GZIS AGP? PCI? PCI EXPRESS?

Your MoBo has (1) of each PCI Express x1 & and PCI Express x16 slots, and (2) standard PCI slots. There are NO AGP bus slots on this board. You'd want to use buy a PCI Express x16 video card instead of a PCI video card due to the better performance offered by the PCI Express cards.

The full details of your motherboard are below:

Product Description The Intel Desktop Board D946GZIS delivers an integrated graphics solution in the Essential Series by combining exceptional value with quality and reliability and supports Intel Core2 Duo, Intel Pentium D, Intel Pentium 4, and Intel Celeron D processors with 1066/800/533 MHz system bus in the LGA775 package.

Want to upgrade the video card but dont know where to start. are the three expansion slots at the bottom of the board used to expand drivers like the video?

Hi there.
Seeing as the graphics on that board are integrated Intel Extreme Graphics and the board does not have PCI Express or AGP slots then you can use one of the 3 PCI expansion slots to install a video card.
The largest PCI graphics card I've seen is a 512MB card and that was not cheap as the latest video slots are PCI Express.
It will however free up essential system memory which is always a good thing.

Asus a7n8x-x motherboard monitor will not fire up.{monitor}light just keeps blinking no picture. any takers?

Ensure that the AGP video card is seated all the way -that is a common problem with AGP cards. If you suspect the video card then try to find a PCI video card if you don't have another AGP card. This is the most direct way of isolating this problem. Best of luck to you, Steve Medley

Aopen Ax4sPE-n

AOpen's website search will get you to the right motherboard with downloads for manual. First box = motherboads, Second box = Ax4spe-n will get you to what you need. There is nothing later then 2003 on any of the downloads
Please compensate my efforts as a show of good faith as most people do not know how much effort has to go into troubleshooting their problems and most would rather forget rather to continue helping the technician develop the necessary information to solve the their problems. This may sound like begging but it's not, it's a matter of fact.

Video card

in my opinion it would be best to upgrade to pci-e motherboard as the pci-e cards are actually cheaper than the agp cards these days, agp is dead by the way, most company's aren't making cards for it anymore.

imnsho you are wasting your money on a agp card.

about your att card, its most likely a driver issue. see if updated drivers are available.

4 x 1GB DDR400 installed; only 3GB recognized by MOBO

If you installed total 4GB memory, the system will detect less than 4GB of total memory because of address space allocation for other critical functions, such as: - System BIOS (including motherboard, add-on cards, etc..) - Motherboards resources - Memory mapped I/O - configuration for AGP/PCI-Ex/PCI - Other memory allocations for PCI devices Different onboard devices and different add-on cards (devices) will result of different total memory size. e.g. more PCI cards installed will require more memory resources, resulting of less memory free for other uses. On a SLI system, since PCI-Ex graphic cards will occupy around 256MB, another 256MB will be occupied after you install a 2nd PCI-Ex graphic card. Hence, 2.75GB memory left only if two SLI cards installed on A8N-SLI Premium while 3.0GB memory left with one graphic card without other add-on devices. This limitation applies to most chipsets & Windows XP 32-bit version operating system. If you install Windows XP 32-bit version operating system, we recommend that you install less than 3GB of total memory. If more than 3GB memory is required for your system, then below two conditions must be met: 1. The memory controller which supports memory swap functionality is used. The latest chipsets like Intel 975X, 955X, Nvidia NF4 SLI Intel Edition, Nvidia NF4 SLI X16, and AMD K8 CPU architecture can support the memory swap function. 2. Windows XP Pro X64 Ed. (64-bit) or other OS which can address more than 4GB memory. You can check below URLs for reference:
