Question about ASUS P5RD1-VM Motherboard

New Graphics Card

Hi I got a p5rdi-vm and as you all know it has an onboard graphics adapter.
Well I used to be on Windows Vista and when I play Call of Duty 2 I had very bad FPS (4-10 normal is 100-250) and I thought it was the graphics card. So I bought an XFX GeFORCE 8600GT for PCI-EXPRESS. I didn't install the onboard adapter's software and I connected the card. Now when I turn on the pc, the framerate is horrible (> 1fps) and in device manager I have no display adapter option and 2 System devices both PCI standard PCI-to-PCI Bridge with a yellow exclamation mark and it says:

This device cannot find enough free resources that it can use. (Code 12)

If you want to use this device, you will need to disable one of the other devices on this system.

Now I figured that since Vista has a lot of compatibility issues, it may work with XP, but I just reformatted the hard-drive to no avail. It's driving me nuts having to waste $160 on a brand new VGA card and it doesn't work...

Thank-you all who took the time to read this.

Re: New Graphics Card

As you stated you have a intergrated video controller. Before you add a PCIE card you have to disable the intergrated video in your BIOS. Also in your BIOS where its stated you have a plug & play OS it should read NO. This allows your BIOS to assign IROs and memory usage rather than windows.
Befor you do all this uninstall your PCIE cards software & drivers. Shut down, fix the BIOS reboot & install your software. If you still have problems download this program FREE and run it to clean your regestry:

While installing Graphics card, do remember to disable onboard graphics from BIOS.

My problem is the graphics and pci, i need a driver, i reformat today and now i noticed that the cd driver was lost, my mother board is ASUS P5SD2-VM. pls help me.tanx

You can see all the list of drivers found for this Motherboard by clicking here.

You would need to select the appropriate OS (Operating System) first before it can give you the list of drivers that you need to download. (Example: Windows XP, Windows Vista, Windows 7)

If you have Windows 7, please download the video driver for Windows Vista.

If you are having trouble with the Global(DLM) link choose instead the Global or China links.

Hope this helps!

About the size of onboard graphic

Onboard-Video: Intel GMA 3100 Graphics Controller, w/ 256MB Shared Memory
Video Slots: 1x PCI-Express x16 Slot
source: Note: I quickly checked Asus's website and the manual (
) but it didn't appear to give a direct answer.

Also note that even if the motherboard supports both onboard+PCI-E, G31(GMA3100) graphics wouldn't help much at all, trust me. You'll want to buy a new PCI-E card if you plan on doing any gaming. Not knowing what game(s) you plan to play, your budget, and what processor you have makes it tough to suggest an exact video card. So, check out this site to select the best card for your budget and game play:

You can definitely get a real good card for under $100. Perhaps a Radeon HD 4850. Lastly, I highly recommend you buy from

I have installed windows vista ultimate in my pc but onboard vga drivers are not supporting this os . so what can i do?

it is weird that vista is not recognizing you r onboard display adapter, did you check with the board manufacturer ? you can also install a regular graphic adapter in your PCI slot and vista should pick it up right the way.

What type of games are you trying to play ?

If your trying to play games that require a better graphics card, then you will need to get a new card.

I have asustekP4BGL-VM motherboard the on board vga give 4 bit colour in xp

Hi alkdt, if windows does not allow you to increase to more than four bit color the fault lays with the onboard video card & not windows.
There are a few things you can try to improve the display in XP. First thing I would suggest is for you to run windows update service. Once this service is loaded click on the custom button & look to the right side of the page. Your looking for hardware or software updates (For the video). There may be an update for your graphics card. If windows does not list an upgrade for your integrated video you can download the driver software from Asus, click on this link to load;
Uninstall the current video software for your Asus board before installing the new. This Asus board was made in 2003 & the onboard video uses your system memory to function. Suggest you buy a PCI graphics card & install it in to an opened PCI slot. Two reasons for this suggestion. Today’s PCI cards come with their own memory. Two, a PCI card will free up your system memory for windows. Like these PCI card;

XFX cardscome with a lifetime warranty.

Good luck alkdt!

Graphics card

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:
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:
If you still feel that you want to use the slower PCI graphics card you can choose from any listed on this link:
You will also need to change a setting in you're bios to boot to the PCI card instead of the AGP onboard card. Page 49.

Good Luck!

Installing NVidia 8500GT XFX 256MB graphics to A8N-VM Motherboard

The chances are that you have an old motherboard which is not compatable with the new graphic card. Or you may be running windows 98 and are downloading the driver for xp or visa versa. The probable solution, will be to sell the new card on ebay and buy the best old card you can off ebay. Or just make do with the card you already had in your computer. If you are determined to have a better graphics card. A motherboard upgrade with better graphic card may be the best answer or buy a better spec pc second hand if you don't have much money. You'll probably waiste a lot of time trying to get the new card to work and it probably never will.
