Question about ASUS P5GD1-VM Motherboard

1 Answer

Installed GeForce 8500 GT PCI-E video card and pc will not turn on

I purchased an AXLE GeForce 8500GT PCI Express 512 MB video card for my PC. Motherboard is an ASUS P5GD1-VM. The PSU is 430W

After installing the card in the PCI Express 16 slot the PC does not turn on. With the card removed everything is fine.

I have tried removing other cards and power from hard drives etc with no success.

Are there known issues with this combination.

Re: Installed GeForce 8500 GT PCI-E video card and pc...

If your mboard has a builtin video card you should configure that b4 u can use that add on card.

1. connect the add on card.
2. connect the monitor to the built in VGA.
3. start system and press "F2 or Delete" to go to bios setup.
4. on bios setup " refer to the manual on installing addon PCI express card".
you find it here:

or enlosed in the board.

After configuring your system restart and unplug in the wall outlet and then connect the monitor in the add on card.

Hope you find in order.

I am a gamer and p5vdc-mx has only agp slot and i want 1gb vga card but it is harder to find in agp slot i find only pci express x16 cards can i use riser card to convert agp to pci e x16

I dont think there are any agp to pci ex riser cards.As pci e x16 is part of the motherboard circutry.

There are pci to agp riser cards.If your going to be playing some of the latest games.Most games in the past 3 yrs require a pci x16 vid card.

I suggest geting another motherboard,chipset,and memory.Along with a Pci e x 16 card min 512mb.

I have: dg31pr core2duo 2giga memory kingston 320hd nvidia geforce 9500 gt 512 Problem: When starts operational system (Vista or 7),sometimes the video do not open. Bios in Auto or pci Express

Suggest you test your geforce 9500 GT in another system or try another PCI-Express video card. Try cleaning the contacts of your 9500 GT with alcohol, allow it to dry. Do not touch the contacts with your fingers after cleaning. If your onboard graphics functions correctly than it may be the 9500 that has a problem.

Happy holidays!

Display problem

Hi there
try going into the bios settings and disable the on board graphics and change it to PCI or PCI Express.
You may have to plug the monitor into the on-board VGA port to do this, once done shut the computer down and change graphics port, then restart the pc, your problem should now be solved

Good luck and kind regards

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.
