Question about ASUS P4S800D-X Motherboard
Video card replaced, AGP slot, from ATI Radeon 9600 Pro to VisionTek x1650pro. Power on returns 1 long and 2 short beeps. Video card error. Returned original card to AGP Slot, power on returns 1 long and 2 short beeps. Removed ATI Radeon 9600 and added old PCI video card, again, 1 long and 2 short beeps.
ASUS P4S800D-X manual states "Install only +1.5V AGP cards" (Page 1-11 of user manual). I believe the X1650 pro is AGP 8X (.8v) bus configuration.
Is this motherboard now toast?
I have removed the motherboard from the case, disconnected everything except the power, the speaker, and the power buttons. All the pci cards and memory are out. The hard drives are also disconnected. I also put the memory stick back in and still get the same result. Very frustrating, but I appreciate your continued thoughts.

All AGP based cards are backwards compatible, so an 8x card should operate at 4x 2x and 1x
however what is important is the voltage of your slot, you can tell by looking at the slot itself, the AGP slot may have a partition either 1/3 or 2/3rds down the slot, or may have no partition at all,
this slot partition is to prevent you from inserting a card of the wrong voltage.
If there is no partition in the AGP slot then the slot has a switchable voltage, and will automatically switch to the appropriate voltage, (on request from the graphics card AUTOMATIC)
so all you need to check is that the graphics card you buy has slots on the AGP interface that accomodate those on your board
according to the manual
This board has a 4x AGP slot
