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.

    Thanks but I don't see integrated video in my BIOS and it was already plug & play off. I even tried updating my BIOS, but nothing.

    Well I got it fixed, sort of. It was a BIOS setting.

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:

I am installing an old video card but its not being detected by windows. i am running windows 7 32 bit and the video card is an MSI NX8600GT Twin Turbo. i even installed "new drivers" which...

Please check the following :
- First, deactivate the onboard VGA adapter in your BIOS. Some other settings can help to start up first the external video adapter.
- If this did not help, check that you have the latest BIOS version, some BIOS have been updated in the past, especially for some graphic card support for some Nvidia cards.
- Then some questions : do you have picture on this card when booting ? Such as the power on self test (POST) ?

Are you using onboard graphics?

You do not have have enough graphics RAM. Bettr to purchase Nvidia or ATI graphics card with atleast 1GB of RAM.

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!

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.

Video graphics card

being a PCI card, not a AGP or PCI-E the system may not simply switch to that one a primary display adapter when you install it, in the bios under advanced system settings or intergrated periferals, you should have an option to change the primary display adapter, make sure a PCI adapter is included.. if it isnt, chage it to recognise a PCI card as a primary adapter, turn the system off, and install your card then, depending on the bios/model of the mainboard on some of those dells, it may be a little hard to find, ive had to play with a few of them
