Question about Motherboards

1 Answer

ONBOARD GPU My motherboard has a single Nvidia 6100/Nforce 450 chipset & the onboard GPU is a Nvidia 6150SE. Im just wondering whether this particular onboard GPU has its own memory or is it still sharing with the memory RAM. In windows display properties it says that it has 256mb memory but I noticed that that my 1gb RAM is only sharing 64MB of memory. I confirmed this in BIOS setup. What does this mean? Can anyone offer an opinion about this dillema? Advance TNX!

Yes this has its own memory for the graphics. your 1gb of ram is something different. the 64mb is going to support the operating system

Have a NVIDIA nForce 780i SLI ATX mothrboard.Does it support gddr5 graphics card


Yes, vipinpabraha.

In fact if they come out with GDDR10, it will support that also.

Why?
Because a graphics card's graphics memory, runs independent of the system resources.

Would not matter if your motherboard used DDR Sdram, and the graphics card uses GDDR5.

(Yes, I know. The Nvidia NForce 780i SLI mobo uses DDR2 Sdram at 800MegaHertz. Or also stated as PC2-6400. Always wanted one of those motherboards)

Integrated graphics, or also known as OnBoard graphics, borrows from the System Resources. The Processor and Ram Memory.
(OnBoard - ON the motherBOARD )

This slows the computer down when using an intensive graphics program, such as an intensive game, for example

A graphics card has it's own Processor (G.P.U.), and graphics ram memory. It doesn't need to borrow from the system resources.

Click on the Specification tab.
Notice under the Processor heading - Chipset.

The motherboard chipset is an Nvidia GeForce 6100 chip, and Nvidia nForce 410 chip.

[ Chip and Chipset are slang terms for I.C.

Good Day, I have 3 motherboards (Gigabyte GA-M61PME-S2). My problem there is no display the onboard VGA, there is no beeping when i get off the memory. I tried the AMD AM3 Sempron 140 @2.7GHz and AMD AM3...


Have you updated the BIOS for the motherboard? AM3 processors don't usually work correctly in an AM2 board without a BIOS upgrade. Also, did you remember to check the BIOS to see that it was set to use the onboard VGA? Likewise when you tried the graphics card (set to PCIe)? Another thing to do is plug the monitor in a known to be good computer to make sure it's working OK, perhaps a monitor setting is misconfigured.

How to disable onboard grafic and install nvidia grafic card on Asrock PV530


Hi there,

When the PC starts up, press F2 to enter the BIOS setup

Press the right arrow key to go to the "Advanced" menu

Now go down to "Chipset Settings"

Now go to "Primary Graphics Adapter"

Now use the + or - keys to change the "Primary Graphics Adapter" setting from "Onboard" to "PCI" or "PCI Express" depending on whether your NVidia graphics card is PCI or PCI express.

Press F10 to save and exit.

Please rate my answer if this was helpful.

Thanks,

Chris

With ASUS M2N-MX mainboard, ATI Radeon 7000 Series problem.


Your Motherboard has an onboard video chipset made by Nvidia. Nvidia and ATI have a history of not playing nice with each other.

I have 2 possible solutions for you.

1.) Remove the Radeon card and use the Nvidia onboard card (Essentially a Geforce 6100)

2.) Enter the bios (Usually done by hitting <Delete> or <F12> while the computer is booting up) Your Motherboards manual can tell you for certain. Then find the options for onboard video and disable it.

Then boot up the PC, When it say starting Windows press <F8> to bring up the windows boot menu. Select "Start in Safe mode" Once this loads up open the device manager, look under "Display adapters" find the entry for the Nvidia adapter, right click on it and select either "Uninstall" or "Disable this device"

Which you choose depends on your personal preference Whether you like Nvidia or ATI boards better.

If it makes your decision easier a Geforce 6100 is roughly equivalent to a Radeon 8500 in performance.

I hope this helps

Drivers


The onboard Network card is based on the nVidia nForce 4 chipset that is also the standard Motherboard Chipset. This can be downloaded from the Asus Website.

Are you having any difficulty with the Onboard LAN or is this just an issue of getting the driver for the LAN card installation?
