No the P4MV890 is very differant then the P4MV8. People like myself & others at FixYa need the correct model number to find the correct soulation. The P4MV8 has an AGP slot & the Integrated VIA® UniChrome Pro 3D/2D Graphics. The P4MV890 does not have a APG8x. I posted everything you need to correct lockups. I'll past it here for you:
sleepoholic, this is what you need to do. You can not run both at the same time. The 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. You want to set the PCIExpress card first. Not the UniChrome Pro. Your on board UniChrome Pro is using your systemre : graphics card nvidia - 1.gif memory. You no longer need to do that. The UniChrome Pro is not like an AGP card, which is a lesser card compaired to the PCIE. And theUniChrome car is a PCI, which is a lower end card compaired to the AGP. Your CPU1.gif & PCIE have a direct link to each other. OK? The AMR slot is for a modem. Most people do not use the AMR, they just use the PCI slot. AMR is supposed to be able to transfer data faster. (Sure!).Here is the link to your board: http://www.asrock.com/mb/overview.asp?Model=P4VM890
Post back if you still have questions. Enjoy!

Hi, I have Intel DG965SS MOTHER BOARD and wanted to add a video card , how can I know what video card can I use ?


Hi yair_osman,
Install PCI Express [Graphics / Video Card]
You can install {Any Type} of PCI Express Card.
It 'must be a [16x PCIe] card!" the "lowercase" (e) = Express.
Important!: It "must fix the {Form Factor} of your Desktop!"
Meaning: "The "Dimensions" in (inches)
Go to the "Website" below.
Its for your Desktop "Assembly Guide"

This is an example of a PCI Express Card:
Galaxy 43GGS8HX3SPZ
GeForce GT 430 Video Card
Price: $69.99

!Important: "Take a 'moment to rate the help', so I can get 'credit' for the work.

Thank you!" - paul7of9

Hi ,i just wanted to know if the intel g41rq motherboard is compatible with the gts250 nvidia graphic card? since the system is kicking me out from most of the games such as call of duty etc...


Yes, it will work, just at the rated speed of the PCI-e 16x slot.
And as long as you have a power supply capable of using the card.

Capacity Per lane:
PCIe v1.x (your motherboard ): 250 MB/s
PCIe v2.x:(nvidia gts250 card): 500 MB/s

And keep in mind:
- the onboard graphic card will be disabled when installing a pcie card.
- the onboard cared uses a vga connector and gtx250 uses dvi

Asus P5GZ-mx compatible graphics cards


Basically, any graphics card is capable of being compatible with this motherboard. I had some difficulties for a while until I figured out you have to MANUALLY set it to use your PCIE 2.0 GPU output.
How to do this is to set your jumpers to external output only. First thing you'll want to do is update the BIOS on the motherboard (Which you can do by getting "Asus-Update". Find it on google, easy to use, just make sure your computer doesn't crash during the BIOS flashing.
Afterwards, set the jumpers to use your PCIE-2.0 slot. Took me a little while to figure this out, and it's a little hard to explain.
Above your PCIE-2.0 slot there are 5 little blue 'plastic-like' things. Those are your jumpers. Take them out and insert them HORIZONTALLY as such:
+ [ + + ] + [ + + ] + [ + + ] + [ + + ] + [ + + ]
Basically, make sure the jumper things are connecting the little drawing there. They HAVE to be horizontally inserted, otherwise this WILL NOT WORK. Just plug in your monitor to the graphics card's output, and you're good to go. Hopefully it works for you.

Where does a garphic card fit


Your intel D102GGC2 motherboard has only PCIE slot (black connector- not the memory slot). Its located beside the buttton cell of the mother board. If your graphics card is PCIE, it would directly fit on the black connector.

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.
