The Asrock P4VM8 motherboard does not have a PCIE slot. Only a AGP. Listed below, click the link:

    Well there's is a big difference between a P4VM890 & P4VM8.

    OK, now that I have the correct information & checked the spec's.

    sleepoholic, this is what you need to do. You can not run both at the same time. Integrated VIA® UniChrome Pro 3D/2D Graphics & the PCIExpress. This is why your getting lock-ups. Enter your Bios setup menue. Go to the Advanced section. Pg. 25 in your manual. You'll see PCIPaP Configurations. Click it & than click

    PCIE/PCI operatin mode. From factory it is set to [Async.mode]. Click on it & see what other options you have because you want to use the PCIExpress card first. Not the UniChrome Pro. Your on board UniChrome Pro is taking your system memory as well. You no longer need to do that. The UniChrome Pro is not like an AGP, it is a PCI thus runs far slower that the PCIE. Your CPU & PCIE have a direct link to each other. OK?

    Post back if you still have questions. Enjoy!

    please vote.... ty

    The AMR slot is where you can put a modem. Pg. 14 in your manual.

I have done a monitor upgrade i.e, DELL S2340L FULL HD1080P monitor and my system has the following specs: Motherboard:M2N MX SE PLUS Processor: Athlon X2 Dual core @ 1.93Ghz RAM: ADATA 2GB DDR2...


Unless you are using a high end motherboard with the latest chipset, you will find it very difficult to get an "onboard" graphics chip to output that resolution. And your motherboard just doesn't have the power to display at that resolution. You will need to find a graphics card that will display that kind of resolution. The Nvidia GTX 650 or the Radeaon 7750 are both capable of handling that display and are cheap (in terms of graphics cards anyway).

I want to increase my graphic memory 128MB to 256MB. My system memory is 2GB, graphic card memory is 128MB and my graphic card is nVidia Geforce 7100 GS. Can I do that?


Yes why not, you can upgrade it to 512 even. But there are few things to check first. 1) Check your board got PCI-E slots or not (I guess this board doesn't have any)
2) Then you should have an AGP (Advance Graphic port) (Where you have attached this Card)
3) Check the AGP speed (2x,4x,8x)
4) Usually the AGP cards (The newer ones) are (4x,8x) compatibility.
Then Your board should have atleast 4x AGP Slot. I remember a software "Sis Sandra Pro" to check the AGP speed.
Afer checking and confirming these things, go to a shop and but a graphic card, (Which falls in the catagory i described above).
Better go for nVidia brand. But let me advise you, You should shift yourself on the PCI-Express PC's. On those PC's you can enjoy some gaming experience.
If i was helpful, kindly do Rate!

Compatability


You have an AGP expansion slot for a graphics card.
(Accelerated Graphics Port)
It uses either 1x, 2X, or 4X graphics cards. Since the only AGP graphics cards out there are 4X or 8X, the 1X, and 2X are moot points. (They were also Junk anyway!)

Your AGP graphics slot only supports AGP graphics cards that are 1.5 volts. There are AGP graphics cards out there, that are Universal. Universal in that they will run as AGP 8X, (.8 volts), or AGP 4X, (1.5 volts)

This is an example:
http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/SearchTools/item-details.asp?EdpNo=4103516&CatId=318

Don't expect to play the high end new intense games with this. I'm afraid you'll have to update your motherboard, processor, ram memory, and a better graphics card to do that.

(Example? XFX Nvidia nForce 680i LT SLI motherboard, Intel Core2 Duo E8200 cpu, Corsair XMS2 PC6400 ram memory, 1GB x2 of them, (DDR2 at 800MHz), and XFX Geforce 9800GTX+, vid card. (Plus OCZ SteathXStream 600W power supply)
This won't break the bank, and will slam some games to the wall!)

Which latest Graphic card can be supported by my Asrock P4i45GV?


Hi

Any video card that supports AGP x8 Should work on this motherboard.

For example Nvidia 7800 GS AGP or 7600 GS AGP should work fine.

But a better investment would be to upgrade the motherboard to a PCI-E supporting board and possibly AMD Dual or Triple / quad core processor the ram is very cheap for DDR2 these days.

Upgrade would be best in long run.

Gaming performance


I figure you are using he onboard VGA with your motherboard. Looking through the BIOS Setup for it, I don't see where it allocates a block of your RAM for use by the video (as a lot of MB's do). All you an do is set the frame size from 1mb to 8mb, max. I suspect the chipset is allocating RAM for the video on the fly.

Regardless, if you want good video performance, you should consider going to a separate video adapter, preferably one that is PCI Express, with a minimum of 256mb of RAM. This takes the load of video processing off the motherboard, and places it on a dedicated GPU, using its' own memory. The Nvidia chipset is popular and well-supported, but most any name brand will do the trick. Shoot for one with PC Express, and as much RAM on it as you can afford.

Hope this helps!

Cheers

how is it? does it work?
if it still not working, then STOP here. something is wrong with your mainboard

if it is working, then goto BIOS configuration
change the PROCESSOR frequency to 100 MHz (MANUAL) and the RAM frequency to 400MHz
save the configuration, and shut it down immediatelly
plug the nvidia FX5500 back, and turn your pc on...

it should be working fine now

Ram issues


Hi Mike,

take the working 256 meg stick out of the slot it,s in. and try it in slot 2 or vice-versa.
This will eliminate the possibility of the mainboard being faulty.
If you get a boot on both Ram slot channels, then your Ram is dead, or incorrect. Check that it,s compatable with the motherboard. i.e running speed 2700-3200-et,c and that it is the correct parity and voltage, as per required by the board/CPU.
