Question about MSI KM4M-L Motherboard

1 Answer

Msi on board video

I bought a computer with a MSI KM4M-L motherboard a few years ago and had installed at the time a Radeon 9600 graphics card. Over the years, we have often had lock ups and resets, which I often attributed to the graphics card or drivers due to the type of lock up ie video would go all strange first.

I finally decided to just pull the card, remvoe the drivers and go with the on board graphics board (circuit?)

Now I have an exclamation mark under "Hardware/SystemDevice Manager/Other devices/video controller" telling me this device is not installed correctly (code 1) but I do not know where to find correct drivers.

How do I reinstall MSI original drivers for this mother board or do I need drivers for the on board video circuit? MSI site is confusing. The motherboard book does not help much either.

Graphics cards

Hi noxiney, you're MSI motherboard does have 1 opened AGP 8x4x slot. You can install & run the ATI Radeon X1650 PRO AGP. You can not run PCI-Express because there are no PCI-E slots on the board. There are PCI (White in color) on the board but the AGP slot is much faster than the PCI (White in color slots). The manual states the AGP card can only support 1.5volt video cards & not 3.3volt AGP cards. (Keep this in mind when looking for an AGP card).
Below is a link to a bunch of AGP 8x4x video cards. One or two include DDR2 memory. Carefull where you buy. Check the warranty. (Longer is better). The first one on the list would be compatible. Its not DDR2 but it does have 512MB of memory.

This card is 1.5v compatable.
& this is compatable.
Just remember, if the card can run both 8x & 4x it should support the 1.5volt needed to function on the MB.

Radeon graphics card and 3rd RAM slot conflict

I thought this board looked familiar to me. I recall some rules for the memory cards. Do all your memory cards meet this requirement:

Supports up to 3GB PC1600/2100/2700/3200* DDR SDRAMs

If you are using DDR 400 you can only use 1 slot.

What kind of memory are you using?

For user BIOS21 & julio1963,
How to enable you're (Add-in AGP video card) & disable the onboard, integrated S3 graphics UniChrome 2D/3D PCI graphics card.
Enter you're bios. Open you're user manual to page 3-13. Integrated Peripherals. Go to, Init display first. Set to AGP.
(Not to PCI). That is all you need to change. The MSI bios will than see you're add in AGP card & automatically disable the PCI S3 graphics, (Onboard) card.

If I can help you further, feel free to post here.
Please, each user's vote this issue as a fix, if this helped you to get you're bios to see you're new AGP graphics cards.

Video incompatibility?

The driver & Catalyst Control Center for the ATI Radeon 9600 Series is listed below for Win XP home & Pro. Lasted updated Jan-16-2008.
Your install will run better if you remove previous software versions for the Radeon 9600. If your attempt to remove old software fails. ownload & run ATI's cat-uninstaller.exe found here.:
