Geforce2 mx card won't work

Resurrecting an old board. works with an old diamond speed star in pci, but if I plug the geforce card in the agp slot after removing the diamond, it won't work. I get little boxes reminiscent of defragging program.

Thanks Philster. The card is a 400. But it turns out it wasn't the card per se. It just took an extraordinarily long time for the system to recognize it. I have a feeling overclocking the cpu had something to do with that. Anyway, it sorted itself out overnight. The whole rig is laughably slow anyway. Now I am going to search for 100 mhz dimms and cross my fingers. It only has a p166mmx in it, although I do have an amd k2-6 500 which I'll probably install now that things seem stable. It just runs scary hot. Bottom line is that I am aiming to get this to run audio studio software and a music jukebox for my sound system. If you have any thoughts on that, I'd welcome them. Thanks again.

You may have zapped the video card. Early boards, as I think this is, used AGP 1x/2x, which was 1.5v or 3.3v. A TNT card, or the old ATI rage type card would work fine. But I believe that all of the GeForce cards were at least AGP 4x, which ran at .8v or 1.5v, and even newer ones were AGP 8x, only .8v.

So that is probably why the Geforce does not work. Hopefully you've not messed up the card or slot, and an older card might work. You should be able to pick one up cheap.

I am a gamer and p5vdc-mx has only agp slot and i want 1gb vga card but it is harder to find in agp slot i find only pci express x16 cards can i use riser card to convert agp to pci e x16


Hello
I dont think there are any agp to pci ex riser cards.As pci e x16 is part of the motherboard circutry.

There are pci to agp riser cards.If your going to be playing some of the latest games.Most games in the past 3 yrs require a pci x16 vid card.

I suggest geting another motherboard,chipset,and memory.Along with a Pci e x 16 card min 512mb.

    Looking to upgrade video. is there a limit to uprade old mboard


    Only cards that work with this board are AGP 4x graphics cards or possiblly AGP 8x cards that are backwards compatible. If you buy an 8x card do your research to make sure it's backwards compatible before purchase. Newer graphics cards are pci-express x16 or pci-e 2. These will not work with your board. Hope this helps & please remember to rate my answer. Thanks.

    VIDOE CARD PROB?


    reseat the video card in the slot. then use the cmos reset jumper on the motherboard (when the power is off). if this doesn't fix the issue, then the card may not be compatible with the agp or pci-e slot that is on your motherboard. If this doesn't work (I am assuming your motherboard also has a default (onboard) vga out port - then go into the bios and set the primary display device to be the agp or pci-e slot.

    Pc upgrade


    Hi ****, you can increase you system speed slightly (Depending on the total memory speed of the card), by adding an AGP 4x video card & setting your bios to boot to AGP. See page 2-16 in your manual. Change, Init Display First to [AGP]. Doing this will disable the onboard - integrated video card. (Doing this will also free your system memory which is used to run the onboard graphics card). Increasing your system memory to its max of 2GB will help as well. Here is Crucial's memory link for your board. http://www.crucial.com/store/listparts.aspx?model=P4GE-MX You should increase the CPU if at all possible to its max speed in-order to see an over-all increase of system performance. (This is not what you asked for, so I'll only include Asus link for supported CPU's, for the P4GE-MX motherboard). http://support.asus.com/cpusupport/cpusupport.aspx?SLanguage=en-us&model=P4GE-MX Don't expect lighting speed but you will notice game playing speed much better. Programs should load much faster, ECT. Upgrading the AGP must comply with 4x/8x (+1.5volt only). Please see page 1-12 in your manual. Looking for XFX video card is best because it carries a lifetime warranty. Try this link: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814150210 You can continue to search for an XFX Geforce cards. (Best on the market for their lifetime warranty). Good luck ****! Though the AGP slot is faster than a PCI slot, you may find an XFX PCI card with more video memory on it. Some even run DDR3 & DDR3 memory. Mike

    Vga compatibility


    It appears that that model is AGP slot based, so it would not work in a PCI slot.

    GeForce4 MX 420 Video Card


    First question: Are you sure you have a PCI card?
    there are several points here:
    Make sure you have the monitor connected to the correct output on your computer. (In this case to the output of the graphics card, not to your onboard output)
    If you have a PCI card set bios to PCI
    Setting it to AGP means the computer is looking for a graphics card in you AGP-slot on you motherboard.

    I cannot help thinking, that you actually have a AGP card in a AGP slot and that you computer is not working on onboard, but on AGP. But you can check which graphics device is used, in display properties (right-click Desktop, Properties, Settings)

    Please post some feedback

    GRAPHICS CARD


    I suggest XFX GeForce 8500 GT 512MB DDR2 PCI Express video card. No need for an upgrade & it has a lifetime warranty. The price is great! Your Asus P5VDC will run it. Here is the link:

    Is there any PCI slot for graphics card in Intel D845GVRS


    hi buddy, the graphics card u r talking about is an AGP not PCI, And most of the 845 chipset series do have an AGP slot, so idont think there is any issue, but do check for the AGP slot.
