AGP graphics card problem

If I put a video card with AGP slot, the computer does not boot. The monitor remains black. Tried to switch in the BIOS to "add-on" the primary card but it didnt help. So on if I put the video card in, and do nothing in BIOS, de computer also does not start. So AGP card put in -> comp does not boot, but beepa bout 5-8times.

How to add second monitor on ECS RS482-M


Doesn't work that way Max.

You can use EITHER the OnBoard Graphics,
OR;
the Add-On Card graphics. (Graphics card)

BIOS will NOT support both at the same time.

If you wish to use dual monitors, get an AGP card that has more than one graphics port on it.

For example, although I'm using a graphics card based on the PCI Express technology, and not AGP technology; my card has a VGA port, DVI port, and HDMI port.

1) VGA Connector; http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/VGA_Connector

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Male_VGA_connector.jpg


2) DVI; http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Digital_Visual_Interface

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Dvi-cable.jpg

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Digital_Visual_Interface#Connector

3) HDMI; http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/HDMI

I use the VGA port, and the DVI port.

RCA EN-V L26HD31, (26 inch HDTV) to the VGA port.
HP 2009M 20 inch Widescreen monitor to the DVI port.

Had to install drivers for HP 2009M.

Let's say I had two DVI ports on the graphics card.
(ATI Radeon HD5450 is the graphics card I have)

But I have a monitor with a VGA cable, and a monitor with a DVI cable.
I would (And have) use a VGA to DVI Adapter.
One example,

http://www.directron.com/dvi.html

Note that the DVI is Male, and the VGA is Female.
The graphics card DVI connector is Female.
The VGA Cable connector is Male.

So.............what is the manufacturer name, and model number of the graphics card; plus what type of monitors are you trying to use?
That is, what type of monitor cables do they have?

Know this;
My HDTV I'm using as a monitor is Digital. However I'm using a VGA cable on it. Best quality would be achieved if I got off my lazy rear, and attached a DVI Cable to it. It uses both.

VGA is Analog. A computer however puts out a digital video signal.
The computer has to convert the digital video signal to an Analog one. This slows the video signal down, and the quality is not as good.

Best to use a digital monitor. (Or a digital monitor WITH a digital cable. DVI Cable. Such as I need to do)

You are also using a PCI Express graphics card, NOT an AGP graphics card.

I'm wrong? OK.

In the meantime turn the computer off, unplug from power, and yank that AGP card out of the slot you put it in.

Tell me what expansion slot on the motherboard you put it in.

The Orange expansion slot on the motherboard, is a PCI-Express x16 slot. Uses a PCI Express graphics card -> ONLY

The white expansions slots are PCI.
Can use a PCI graphics card. CANNOT use an AGP graphics card.

Asrock p4i45gv not detecting hd 3650 agp card


Take the new card out and reconnect the monitor to the on-board VGA. Boot up press F2 and enter the bios. Look for resource configuration and set the Primary Graphics Adapter as AGP.
Save and switch off. Disconnect the PC from the mains, fit the new card and attach the monitor cable to the new card.
Make sure to attch a power connecter to the card if it needs it.
Reconnect the PC to the mains switch on and hopefully away you go.

Best of luck.

Im trying to install agp...how do i disable the on board vga


Hi there.
Remember that if you are swapping from on-board graphics to a card you have to go into the BIOS and tell the machine that the primary graphics adapter is AGP/PCI Express.
Plug the VGA cable into the on-board graphics port, start the computer and enter the BIOS, tell the computer to use the AGP/PCI card as primary, press F10, save the changes and exit the bios.
The computer will try and restart so let it boot to post and turn it off, then put in your card and try to boot again.
Please post back if you need more help or advice.

Good luck and thanks for choosing FixYa!!

Problem using graphics card


You don't have to order a 'dell' brand power supply, just make sure you replace it with one more powerful with the same connection types... but before you do that, try changing the bios setting from 'auto' and specify the first video device to be the PCI-e, or AGP... depending on the type of card that you're putting in there.

Connect your monitor card into your origional monitor port. Boot to BIOS and disable the VGA port. Save and exit. After re-start, shut down and install the new AGP.

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

Video card


actually your computer is working on the onboard video adapter.

1. connect first the monitor to the onboard video card.( do not remove the connected geforce video card.)
2. switch on the computer and press "F2" on new model computer, "Delete" on old model computer.
so that you can enter to bios setup.
3. if bios setup is open; try to find the "AGP bridge configuration"
(some other bios AGP B C is in chipset) by arrow up,down,side left and right) enter.
4. Find " primary graphics adapter"
5. In there, select : If Video card is "pci" connected ; select "pci"
If Video card is "AGP" connected ; select "AGP"
6. press F10 to save and exit the setup.
7. after saving the configuration, disconnect power cord and transfer the monitor to the video card (Gforce). and then connect the ac power cord and then start. or switch on the computer.

Note: be sure to install the drivers of your GFORCE for optimum performance of the card.

hope this help.

Problem with installation of Chaintech FX5200 P-FX20 256MB PCI


You got the names wrong, there is no PCI version of the FX5200, therefore it is AGP or PCI Express only.(doubt the later) Now asuming you havent forced the card into the wrong slot, take the modem out. Check in the BIOS at bootup if the machine has an onboard graphics card, disable that or set to boot the AGP or PCIXpress. Then manual IRQ settings. Set those to AUTO. There is a rule to PCI cards (really doubt yours is) to ALWAYS put a graphics card into the 1st PCI port on the board, most boards have labels, manual has it for sure. It will aslo say if and which pci port shares its IRQ (interrupt request) with what device on the mainboard - that conflict causes some strange things to happen later in windows... Then boot to safe mode. If it boots, check device manager for duplicate devices. delete every duplicate and reboot. Most likely it is just windows going nutz, unless there was some PCI / AGP, force insertion magic or you forgot to unplugg the power cord and the mainboard was live and had suffered some damage while changing the cards... More details would help, hope this will be of any use m8. Good luck!
