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??

    I have a nvidia geforce4 mx420 64mb agp video card. When i installed windows 7 it said that i now have a standard vga graphic card. I was wounder can you help me with this problem? bascily windows 7 is not...

    That is because you have a very old card that cannot meet the minimum requirement to be used in Win 7 - to be Dx9 compatible. This video card will never work, replace it with a better one - at least an 7 series one like

    Have gforce4 ti video card NO PICTURE of any kind screen says no signal detected

    The GeForce4 Ti has two rear ports. 1 HDMI and 1 VGA. Try plugging into each. Video signal should be sending out of one of the ports. If neither port is sending out signal than you'll need to trick the bios.
    Suggest you remove the Gforce4 Ti AGP card from the MB so you can regain video display and change the settings within the bios. Once you have display, enter the bios menu. Do you have your manual? Enter bios menu by pressing the "Delete" key every 2 seconds until the bios menu loads. Open, Integrated Peripherals, see top of page 3-11. Set Primary Graphic's Adapter to: [AGP]. Than go to the top of page 3-10. Change the AGP Aperture Size to as low as possible or to: [Disabled] "preferred".
    AGP 8x Support set to: [Enabled]. Save your settings and exit the bios. The system will restart. Press and hold the power on / off button until your system shuts off. Install your GeForce4 Ti AGP video card. Double check your video card! Some NVIDIA cards need external power above what the AGP slot can provides. Some use a power connector like the floppy drive uses. Other look just like a hard disk drive power connector: 4-pin Molex. If none is found don’t worry about it.

    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.

    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:

    Good Luck!

    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:
    This is one of very few video cards found on the list with 256MB of video memory.

    Good Luck!

    GeForce4 MX 420 Video Card

    First question: Are you sure you have a PCI card?
    there are several points here:
    Make sure you have the monitor connected to the correct output on your computer. (In this case to the output of the graphics card, not to your onboard output)
    If you have a PCI card set bios to PCI
    Setting it to AGP means the computer is looking for a graphics card in you AGP-slot on you motherboard.

    I cannot help thinking, that you actually have a AGP card in a AGP slot and that you computer is not working on onboard, but on AGP. But you can check which graphics device is used, in display properties (right-click Desktop, Properties, Settings)

    Please post some feedback
