Question about ASUS P5PE-VM Motherboard

X1600 pro on Asus P5PE-VM

Dunno if this card is incompatible with the board but everytime I slip this card in, my pc turns on and just hangs.
All lights are on, all fans are on, dvd rom spins, hdd sounds for like 3 secs.

Then I left it for 2 hours, then it switches on for a day then problem is bad.

Doesnt do this when I slip in a 9250 or use it's onboard VGA....
I mean it cant be the psu or anything if it worked before right?

Gonna try updating bios but before please give me some help

    oh the card is a sapphire....also since i live in south africa we get quite unstable electric lights are dim sometimes....
    and I got a 300w psu
    dunno if that would be a factor

  • karoter Feb 10, 2008

    problem is I got an antec nsk3300, the 300w psu it comes with is really small. Cant find a replacement for it with higher power.

    But I'll try flash the bios.

    And about the free buffer in sleep mode, if my ramms doesnt release the buffer when the pc is off, anyway of forcing it disconnecting the cord for 5min? And why would other cards work?

    Thanx Wiz

  • karoter Feb 17, 2008

    Thanx for the response. Think I'll need to get another card coz somehow I busted to a point now it doesnt work anywhere.

    Dead card...:(

Hey Karoter: I've built a lot of systems with ASUS products. I hope you checked your aual before installing that AGP-8X card. The Asus P5PE-VM can use only 1.5V or 0.8 volt video cards in that slot.
Double check to make sure you didn't purchase a 3.3V AGP card. It will notfunction properly ifthis is the case.

Ok..lets do like this..fisrst of all the board is not long as you already had a prove of that 9250 is also a ATI core,so 1600.
here is the link to your mainboard

so..check and replace the power supply.take a true power supply like a 450W akasa or chieftec..theese are a good price /quality balance.
and after that make a bios update,again in case if you already did it,this time under the DOS mode,from a bootable cd.
this more than sure will solve it
for now seems your bios doesnt support the sleep mode in this configuration..also check the ramms..the ramm "doesnt like" the sleep mode,if you know what I can not recover the free buffer while in sleep mode and also can lead to this fault.
and sure,after all I suggest you reinstal the will fix some other possible problems.
good luck.
oh by the way..your intuition was good...
the power supply can be the fisrt to blame..
bye bye

Can i put video card on p5pe vm? and what video card

It has an onboard video, so you don't need one, but if you want to add a better one it must be an AGP 8X/4X card and must be +1.5 volts.

A manual for your board is:

look at page 1-20 about video cards

Can i install pci video card in my p5pe-vm board ?

You could by why would you?  Even your " on board" graphics are faster that an PCI video card would be. You have a AGP 8 slot. Look for a really good AGP 8 video card. That should get you where you want to go. It will not be as fast as a PCIe16 card but you do not have that option nor slot of *********** board. 
Below is the ASUS link to your board.

I have asus MB P5PE-VM in ,y computer. After using it for sometime it there was no more video display. the monitor indicate no signal. No beep sound. only the hard drive indicate that it is busy due to...

Have you tried another monitor? Have you tried reinstallng the videodriver? 
If none of that works your model has an AGP 8 video card slot(Advanced Graphics Port). Purchase a AGP card and it wil come with the driver. Turn off the "onboard graphics: in the BIOS setup screen and you off and running again.

Asus link is to *********** board.

Graphics card problem

Hi rovin,
So you bought an XFX GeForce 256MB video card. You're board has 1 free AGP 8x video slot & 3 PCI (White opened slots).
You mention there is not slot for the new card. (What type of video card did you buy)? PCI-E, AGP or PCI?
The only slot you're board does not have is a PCI-Express.
Look in you're manual on page 1-7 for the location of the AGP video card slot.
94565e6.jpg If you bought the wrong card, exchange it for an AGP 8x or PCI.
The ASUS P5PE-VM uses a integrated Intel® 865G chipset with integrated Intel® Extreme Graphics 2 Technology, which uses you're system memory to function.
If you need a manual you can download it from Asus. Click on the link to open to the P5PE-VM download site.

I hope you find this helpful.
