Hey there sven155, If i were you , I would get get the video card for the AGP slot. The main reason is the interface is much more efficient, and as a result the dual monitor output would be better in quality than you can get out of a PCI card or any USB connection. Another option is to have your TV Wonder plugged into the computer via AGP only when you need it, therefore you would be switching one for the other (Inconvenient). Ideally video card on AGP, TV card on the PCI.
Alternately you can make the two work, just not simultaneously, and you would have to change settings in the bios to set one or the other as your primary video output.

Hi,

I think you have not connected power connector to your Radeon HD5570 .
This graphics card have 6pin power connector .
You need a 6pin power connector cable that comes with the graphics card box.

1.First connect your 6pin power connector to Graphics card.
2. Then connect other part of the cable to PSU.

Hope it will work for you.

There are capacitor that are keeping the pcie card


you will need to find another video card that fits correctly OR modify the current video card so it fits, which voids the warranty and is not recommended.

When powering on get no input to monitor board nu a7n8x-e


Make sure you have connected into the correct video port. DVI should be used for LCD monitors and VGA should be used for CRT monitors. Since both ports look the same people often get confused. Try it and let me know.

Sai.

ATI 9250 AGP8X 128mb TV out DVI graphics card


Hi rio,
In your manual on pg. x, you'll find your motherboard uses an integrated Intel® Extreme graphics card. You'll need to enter the bios. As you start up the PC start pressing the Delete key on the keyboard every 2 seconds. The main menu of the bios will open. Look at the bottom of the screen to see the instructions on how to move around in the bios using your keyboard. The mouse does not function while in the bios.
Goto Advanced menu pg. 2-4 in your manual. High-lite,
On-board Devices Configuration, press enter. Go-to Advanced Chip-set Settings pg. 2.4.2 in your manual as a guide.
What your looking for is Graphics Adapter Priority. It's currently set as [Internal VGA]. You need to change it to, [AGP/PCI]. Save & exit. The system will re-start. Your windows screen will not look good. It will once you get your ATI 9250 software installed. However I suggest you not install your software drivers for the 9250 just yet because ATI has newer software online. Your going to install the latest software sooner or later & when you do you'll have to un-install the old software first. So I'll past the link for your ATI 9250 AGP card here. Just click the link & it will take you right to the download site. This is the latest software package for your 9250. http://ati.amd.com/support/drivers/xp/radeon-prer300-xp.html

Need more help just post here.
Good luck & kind regards..

Adding AGP Graphic Card on Compaq Evo D310M 845G P4


Was it onboard graphics you had before? If so there is a setting in the bios that you need to change to get it to run from the agp slot.

Hope that helps?

Video Card Problems


Sounds like the video card is heating up too quickly and can't get rid of the heat fast enough. Maybe you need to check the fan on the video card or get another fan to circulate the air more within your PC. I currently have 3 fans blowing inward in my PC and 1 blowing outward. 1 mounted on the front, blowing inward 1 mounted on the side, blowing inward 1 mounted on the top, blowing inward 1 mounted on the back, blowing outward I used to have problems with my video card acting up from time to time and this seemed to help keep not only my video card cool, but also my CPU.
