Re: video card prob

I serch the web for you and find this..

>> Re: intel mb (D845WN) won't recognize my Geforce4 Ti 4200
I have the same mb, the intel845WN, and I hav a TI4600 from bfg tech too, and it seems that it isn't at its best!
I don't know what is the problem, I'm trying to get it solved with bfg but they stopped answering me. It's hard because I'm in Brazil and I don't have any way of getting the support.
Just by e-mail.

I've tried every driver but it isn't what I've expected.
By the way, I had a gf2 mx200 and it worked just like the ti4600, as good as the ti. Incredible isn't it?
Just try it....... good luck and rate me

I have a P5GC-MX 1333, I have an nvidia graphics card, but I want to plug a monitor to the nvidia and to the onboard card as well. Once I installed the nvidia graphics card the internal card is not...

Internal video and AGP / PCI Express video cards use the same "pipeline" so you can only use one or the other, not both.

If you need additional video ports, you HAVE to get additional cards / a video card with multiple video ports.

I want to use a better vga but it isnt any port

Without a VGA port, you can't use a VGA card, pretty simple stuff.

If you want to add a video card, you will need to get a PCI video card (NOT PCI-E!) There are a number of them out there, and pretty much anything made in the last 3 to 4 years will be better than the on-board video...

PCI-E card does not work, onboard video works fine, this is the second card.

The Abit IP-95 manual doesn't show you how to adjust your bios settings when adding a PCI-E x16 graphics card. When adding a PCI-E card you'll need to adjust a few settings within, Advanced Setup.
Press the delete key on your keyboard every two seconds to load your bios menu. Within Advanced Setup look for, Onboard Device Configuration and open it. Find, Primary Graphics Adapter.
Set this to read as [PCI-E, VGA] save your changes and exit.

Currently your onboard graphics is enabled. You'll need to change this setting to PCI-E first. When you use the onboard UniChrome Pro 2D/ 3D Graphics & Video Controller you are also using some of your system memory to run the UniChrome graphics. Once you enable the bios to boot to the PCI-E card you can also stop using your system memory assigned to the UniChrome card. Link to Abit is provided below, click on it to open;

No video from the board

Check the motherboard user guide for how to reset to default factory settings. If the BIOS is set to work with the on-board only and the on-board VGA is dead the motherboard is supose to detect that and switch to AGP. If is not doing that chances are not only the on-board VGA controller is gone ... the motherboard is gone too.
Try with a PCI video card.

1.Reboot with the AGP or PCI video card installed - assuming the on-board is gone but the motherborad still OK.
2. Press DELETE key
is supose to go in BIOS settings menu.
Browse and Look for on board VGA adapter ENABLE/DISABLE setting or something similar.

(My bet ? You need a new motherboard.)

No picture at all

Hi geminip3, you need to make a couple bios changes when using a PCI-E graphics card. Still have your manual? Go to page 36. Advanced Chipset Features. Onboard GPU (Enable If No Ext GPU). By adding a PCI-E card this should be set to Disable. Than go to page 44. Init Display First (PCI Slot), set this to [PCI-E]. Read each page.
Than save your bios & exit. The system will auto restart. If you do not see display, wait about a minute & remove the monitor cable to the second out put slot. Some PCI-E cards need more power than the PCI-E motherboard slot can provide. You may find a power port on the PCI-E card. Some look just like the power cord for a floppy, others look like the power cord for an IDE hard disk drive. The latest ones are black in color & one end connects to an opened 4-pin molex (IDE power cord). Let’s address the onboard video card. (No PCI-E card attached). Back to page 36. Onboard GPU should be set to [Enable]. Page 44. Set Init Display First to [VGA/PCI]. Page 45. PCI/VGA Palette Snoop, set to [Disable]. I was unable to find where in the bios one can set the amount of system memory to run the onboard VGA. ECS manual is not the easiest to work with. Note: Ihave worked on other ECS MB's & though the above information has worked out ok for some, its not worked out for others. If the above suggestions do not work out, suggest you call ECS tech. I have emailed ECS stating their manual is confusing & asked for them to explain bios settings for VGA & PCI-E. Correct bios settings for your MB & user jrl1261's MB GeForce6199PM-M2. If the above settings do not work out. Don't fret. ECS wil get back to me & I'll post their email here.

Graphics card

Hi Harikris, no you can not install just any graphics card. You're Intel D845GLLY board uses an onboard graphics card. (It's an AGP graphics card).
If it's you're intention to install a new graphics card you must use a PCI graphics card. (Understand that the AGP onboard graphics is faster than a PCI graphics card). However, the PCI cards do use their own memory. (Which fee’s you're system memory to run windows.
The Intel D845GLLY has 4 PCI (White) slots, onboard. You can add a video card into the system. You're onboard video card does use you're system memory to function. If you're PC has 512MB of system memory & you're video card is set to use 128MB of memory. Than you're system is left to run with 128MB. One would think you're system is running a little slow.
The Intel D845GLLY motherboard can use up to 256MB of system memory. You can set the amount of system memory in the bios as shown on page 49, table 18. In you're manual. If you do not have you're manual you can download it from here:
May I suggest you increase you're system memory to 1GB. Than increase you're graphics memory to 256MB. You're system will run faster & so will you're graphics card. These older Intel motherboards require memory current for you're board. Click this link:
If you still feel that you want to use the slower PCI graphics card you can choose from any listed on this link:
You will also need to change a setting in you're bios to boot to the PCI card instead of the AGP onboard card. Page 49.

Good Luck!

Need help disableing onboard video, and installing PCIe video card.

Hi rebelel1271, I do have the manual for you're Intel motherboard. You can have it as well. Click on the link below to download you're manual. document.write("D101GGC Product Documentation & Manuals") D101GGC Product Documentation & Manuals
Intel states you do not need to make any bios changes when you add a PCI-Express video card. See this on page 17, PCI and PCI Express Auto Configuration. Before installing you're PCI-E video card, open windows controll panel. Than open add/remove programs. Look for the driver software for you're onboard ATI Radeon X200. Uninstall that software. (If listed). Close all opened windows & shut down windows. Unplug the power cord from the PC. Open the case. Install you're new ATI Radeon X800 PCI-E video card. Double check all internal connections, (In case you may have bumped loose any cables). You're X800 may also have a 3-pin or 4-pin male power connector built on the card. If so, plug power to the X800.
Intel D101GGC driver page.*+XP+Professional&lang=eng&strOSs=44&submit=Go%21#DOC
ATI's web site for the latest driver's.
A little information. Once you're PCI-E has been installed. You're system memory will increase.

Good Luck!
If I can help you further, feel free to post here.

Vga display problem

There is one pin/wire on the VGA connector that translates to the color red on your screen. If you aren't seeing any red, I would suspect that there is damage to the integrated VGA connector on the motherboard, or a component failure in the circuit.

These are great desktop boards.

The Video bus on these boards are shared between the integrated (onboard) video card and port and the AGP slot. This means that you can only use one or the other. When you install an AGP card in the slot it overrides the integrated video including your problem.

If you are good with electronics I'd take a look at the board under the scope and look for damage.

I would rist check with intel on the warranty. You may be surprised. I've had several of these replaced via RMA through intel. They are a bit older but still by desktop board of choice.
