Question about HP (DC195A) Serial Adapter

1 Answer

Windows Vista won't boot

I have an Nvidia 680i SLI motherboard. I installed my HP DC195A Serial & Parallel PCI Card into one of two PCI slots and booted my computer. The BIOS booted, but Vista did not. I hanged during a state, I think called Verifying DMI Pool Data or something. I tried switching slots, but the OS would still not boot. I want to use the card, but need to know what I'm doing wrong and how to resolve this issue.

    This is outrageous then! I purchased the card on eBay (yes, I know, I shouldn't complain about anything when purchasing anything from here), and here's the item description: HP DC195A Serial & Parallel PCI Card Oxford Chip Vista. Of course, in the description, the seller states that there are Vista compatible drivers, but only drivers. I'm trying to get in contact with the seller to see what he/she says. Thank you for this quick solution!

Can i put nVIDIA geforce 8600 on my p5sd2-vm


Yes, your Asus motherboard will support the Nvidia GeForce 8600 PCI-Express graphics card.
However one thing you should consider. The 8600 card is SLI compatible but the motherboard only has one PCI-E x16 slot.
You will also need to make some changes in your bios.
In order to help you configure your system for a PCI-E graphics follow these steps.
1. Uninstall your current display driver software through windows control panel. Windows may ask you to restart your system, do not restart. Shut windows down which will shut off the system.
2. Unplug the power cable from the system & open your case.
3. Install your 8600 card. (Double check it is installed correctly & if needed has the extra power cord connected to the card.
4. Re-connect the power cord.
5. During boot up enter the bios by pressing the Delete key every couple seconds.
6. Once in the bios click the Advanced tab, see top of page 2-19 in your manual.
7. Than open Onboard Device Configuration
Open North Bridge Configuration, see page 2-22
Change Primary Graphics Adapter to [PCI-E]
Change Internal VGA to [Disable]
Change Share Memory Size to [Disable]

8. Save Bios changes & exit. Your system will auto restart.
Once windows has finished loading install the 8600 driver software & directX 10.0. You can also go to nVidia & download the latest software driver @

I want to use two Graphics card in single motherboard


Not on this motherboard, and not with two different video cards. Your motherboard does have two PCI-E slots at x1 speed, but only one slot at x16 speed. And when you use SLI you should use two identical video cards for best results.

Asus a8n sli premium


From the Asus support site.

If you installed total 4GB memory, the system will detect less than 4GB of total memory because of address space allocation for other critical functions, such as:

- System BIOS (including motherboard, add-on cards, etc..)
- Motherboards resources
- Memory mapped I/O
- configuration for AGP/PCI-Ex/PCI
- Other memory allocations for PCI devices

Different onboard devices and different add-on cards (devices) will result of different total memory size.
e.g. more PCI cards installed will require more memory resources, resulting of less memory free for other uses.

On a SLI system, since PCI-Ex graphic cards will occupy around 256MB, another 256MB will be occupied after you install a 2nd PCI-Ex graphic card. Hence, 2.75GB memory left only if two SLI cards installed on A8N-SLI Premium while 3.0GB memory left with one graphic card without other add-on devices.

This limitation applies to most chipsets & Microsoft Windows 32-bit version operating systems.

If you install Windows 32-bit version operating system, we recommend that you install less than 3GB of total memory. If more than 3GB memory is required for your system, then below two conditions must be met: 1. The memory controller which supports memory swap functionality is used. Chipsets later than Intel 975X, 955X, Nvidia NF4 SLI Intel Edition, Nvidia NF4 SLI X16, and AMD K8 CPU architecture support memory swap function. 2. Windows 64-bit OS which can address more than 4GB memory.

Graphics card help



> nvidia 9600gt oc graphics card requirements : found at http://www.bfgtech.com/bfgr96512gtoce.aspx

Microsoft Windows Vista -or- Windows XP
> CD or DVD-ROM drive > 100MB of available hard disk drive space for basic driver installation > 425W PCI Express-compliant system power supply with a combined 12V current rating of 28A or more (Minimum system power requirement based on a standard PC configured with an Intel® Core™2 Extreme X6800 processor) > PCI Express-compliant motherboard with one vacant PCI Express x16 slot. > One 6-pin PCI Express supplementary power connector -or- Two 4-pin Molex supplementary power connectors
> 512 MB of system memory
http://www.directron.com/slireadymb.html heres a list of SLI ready motherboards. dont gotta use this site to buy it just giving you and idea of whats out there for you.

Seems from what i gathered that as long as its an SLI ready motherboard with a open 16x PCI-E compliant slot and of course its gotta fit your tower. Find out the form factor of the tower then also make sure that it fits the correct type of ram that you have and prosesser. Then u should be good to go!

PCI card not been detected via Windows.


the sound card is installed into the ISA slot not the PCI slot.
clear the cmos for a minute, set it normal again.
install the sound card to the ISA slot carefully - i mean a working sound card and couple the system unit and boot, surely you will have your sound card working.
