EP-8K3A EP-8K3A motherboard Video trouble

PLEASE HELP!!! I have a EP-8K3A EP-8K3A motherboard with a nvidia e-GeForce2 Ti 64mb AGP video card. I think the motherboards VGA port has stopped working. When I start up the computer, the video card fan works but the monitor does not detect the card. I took the card out and tried it on another motherboard and it worked fine. Is this a motherboard AGP port problem??

    Not sure how to do this. The computer belongs to friends of mine. They were having trouble with the computer freezing up. I checked the temp of the processor and found it running hot. I shut down the computer and cleaned the fans to the processor and video card. When I restated the computer, the video would not work. Then I started getting 1 long beep that kept repeating itself. The light on the motherboard was not on anymore either.

    I can't get into the bios. I tried the video card from my computer inside this computer and it still did not work. The video card is seated in the slot correctly.

    OK, If I wanted to enable the add-on card in the BIOS, how would I do it considering I can't get into the bios?:-(

    Does this motherboard have a built in VGA? I did not mean to say that the VGA port is not working. I meant the AGP port on the motherboard appears not to be working.

    Sounds like you didnt put the video ribbon cable back on either tightly or the wrong way

    Sorry, wrong post..





    Restart, go into bios and make sure that video source is the AGP..

    Also, pull the video card again, it may not be totally seated.

    You need to borrow a pci video card, and install it. Apparently the onboard and agp port are bad. once you get any video, you can work from there.

    No,it does not have a built-in vga.

    When you restart it look for a message to run setup. Check the video port and see if agp is selected.

    What AGP is compatible with my ECS KT400 motherboard and AMD Athlon 1900+ processor? I currently have NVIDIA Geforce2 MX 400 64MB and I want to upgrade it to 128MB or 256MB.


    Hi,

    Any AGP card is supposed to work. Doesn't matter what spec. Don't expect huge performance increases by just upgrading gfx card. Games might run better visually.

    Cheers.

    Compaq EVO 510 CMT


    Accourding to other users that own the 510CMT, once the AGP card has been installed it automatically disables the onboard graphics card. http://forums12.itrc.hp.com/service/forums/bizsupport/questionanswer.do?prodSeriesId=316510&prodTypeId=12454&threadId=1050434&admit=109447627+1213753294488+28353475

    From reading post from the link above, the EVO can run only a 4x 1.5v AGP video card and it's picky about this. So if you have an AGP card & it runs both 8x & 4x speed chances it wil not function in the EVO.
    Here is a list of AGP 1.5v 4x cards that should function in the EVO:

    ASrock P4i45GV Motherboard


    Hi sandesh8, did you know you can increase the memory size of the onboard AGP card above the 64MB? Page 26 in you're manual. If you install another AGP card into the opened AGP slot, please go to this site & only use the recomended AGP cards in the Asrock list. Click on this link: http://www.asrock.com/mb/vga.asp?Model=P4i45GV%20R5.0&s=478&c=VGA
    This is one of very few video cards found on the list with 256MB of video memory.

    Grapics card


    Hi,

    Most current AGP video cards are now 8X and they will still work with your motherboard but will just be limited to 4X. Trying to find a 4X might be time consuming whereas using an 8X downgraded to 4x would be comparatively easier and faster.

    Additionally most Video cards will work under XP with the appropriate drivers but Vista has a limited list of compatible Video cards.

    Hope that this be of some help/idea. Pls post back how things turned out or should you need additional information.

    Good luck and kind regards.
