Question about Intec S848P Motherboard

1 Answer

Ram issues Hi, Right I am currently running the following setup: Chaintech S848P motherboard PNY DDR 400 1GB RAM module 256mb DDR AGP graphics Nvidia 6200A Barracuda IDE 80GB Maxtor sata 250gb DVD dual layer etc 5.1 creative sound card and I "was" running Microsoft Windows Vista Ultimate edition quite happily, completely randomly the screen goes black and it intermitantly beeps (on for a period of time and then off) Upon reboot it also fails. I then try the Ram in different areas - to no avail I borrowed someone elses ram - still dies The only ram i have so far managed to get working is an ancient 256mb stick! Oh and to clarify I have taken out all other component to attempt to figure out whats dead, as far as I can see it can only be the ram or the mb thats dead... Any ideas greatly appreatiated. Thanks, Mike

Hi Mike,

take the working 256 meg stick out of the slot it,s in. and try it in slot 2 or vice-versa.
This will eliminate the possibility of the mainboard being faulty.
If you get a boot on both Ram slot channels, then your Ram is dead, or incorrect. Check that it,s compatable with the motherboard. i.e running speed 2700-3200-et,c and that it is the correct parity and voltage, as per required by the board/CPU.

What would be the best compatible 512 MB GPU(with shader 3 or 4) working with P4I45GV 3.00 /P4 2.4 GHZ/1 Gb ram ?


http://www.asrock.com/MB/overview.asp?Model=P4i45GV%20R5.0

Any of them Shubham.

If we are to discern by a few known statements;

1) It is believed in some 'geek communities', that using the same manufacturer of motherboard chipset, and graphics chipset; to be a good thing.

For example an AMD motherboard chipset 'plays well' with an AMD ATI graphics chipset;

Nvidia motherboard chipset 'plays well' with Nvidia graphics chipset.

Intel motherboard chipset with Intel graphics..............no wait,....... there is no Intel graphics chipset, unless it is -> Integrated Graphics.
[ Intel GMA ]

(Integrated Graphics is also said as OnBoard graphics. ON the motherBOARD)

2) DOES NOT MATTER what graphics memory type is used.

Motherboard can use DDR Sdram ram memory, and graphics card can use GDDR5.

Why?
Because the graphics card has it's own Processor, and Ram Memory.

Graphics Processing Unit, or GPU; is the Processor,

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/GPU

Graphics memory is the ram memory.

Operates independent of the system resources.
Processor, and Ram Memory.

The graphics expansion slot on the P4I45GV (P4 i 45GV), is an AGP slot.
Accelerated Graphics Port,

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/AGP

It will use an AGP 4X, or AGP 8X graphics card.
Use an AGP 8X.

http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/SearchTools/search.asp?keywords=agp+graphics+card+512mb

REMEMBER;

1) ALWAYS follow Anti-Static Precautions.

2) INSTALL the software for the graphics card F-I-R-S-T,
(Drivers and 'control panel')

THEN unplug the computer from power, follow Anti-Static Precautions, and Physically plug the graphics card into the motherboard, and install.

3) L@@k at the system requirements (Minimum) for the graphics card.
Specifically the Power Supply requirements. You need a Power Supply with enough Wattage, to handle the graphics card.

[ Handles the graphics card, and -> Motherboard, Processor, Ram Memory, and peripherals; Internal and External.
{Harddrive/s, optical drive/s; Internal
Mouse, Keyboard, external harddrive, etc; External ]

hello jaymarque, hi, try reducing the resolution, if not you should upgrade your onboard RAM around to 1gigabyte ram, switch your processor to Dual core 2.0GHz and or upgrade/change your AGP to a ram up to 512mb

I have a 256MB DIMM RAM and want to upgrade my video.


Yes it will work the speed of the ram on the video card is for processing on the video card, and is independent of the speed of the system RAM, as long as it is compatible with the AGP type on your motherboard you are good to go, some 8X speed cards will not run full speed in older Motherboard with a max speed of 4X, check your motherboard info and it should tell you what the max is for yoru board.
Hope this helps, Have a great weekend

Nvidia Geforce FX5200 128mb DDR AGP 8x


Hi, since you mentioned you installed an MSI card & it worked well. I can assume you changed the bios & to boot to the AGP rather than the Integrated 3D video. This is good. Notice the message you got from Nvivia. It could not locate any compatible drivers. This can indacates 1 of 4 reasons.
1. The 5200 was not completely incerted into the AGP slot.
2. The AGP slot is dirty & needs cleaned.
3. Nvidia software was installed but previouse graphics software was not removed (un-installed) before the installation of the nvidia software.
4.The card is bad.
Suggest you download the latest driver software from Nvidia.
