Question about ASUS A7S8X-MX Motherboard

1 Answer

Connecting Multiple Drives and new graphics card

I have an older computer that is running the ASUS A7S8X motherboard with AMD Sempron 2500, onboard video, DVD-RW drive and 2 hard drives. My daughter is using this to play Sims 2 and Sims 2 Pets and we are experiencing flashing walls in the game. The Sims websites had 2 suggestions: more memory and a stand alone graphics card.

Original system had 512 MB memory so I have upgraded to 2 GB of memory. Did not solve issue while playing the game so now onto install of the graphics card.

Purchased ATI Radeon HD 2600Pro 256 MB (AGP) and installed into the computer.
First issue encountered:

The graphics card requried 2 points of power from power supply. I could only achieve this by disconnecting 1 of hte hard drives. Is there a connector cable of some sort that would allow me to reconnect this hard drive and still get power to the graphcis card?

Second issue encountered:
Powered up the computer, loaded the software and drivers for the graphics card and all seems well but upon restarting of the computer I get a new hardware device found messge for a PCI and I do not have anything installed in this slot. Not sure what is causing this and could use some guidance.

Hello here is the homepage:

http://www.asus.com/Motherboards/AMD_Socket_FM1/F1A75M_LE/#specifications

To enable crossfire, you must have 2 identical graphic cards.

The onboard graphic can`t be used with the hd6670.

This means that you must buy another hd6670 to add on the mainboard.

The graphic cards homepage:

http://www.asus.com/Graphics_Cards/AMD_Series/EAH6670DI1GD3/

AMD CrossFire technology is the ultimate multi-GPU performance gaming platform. Unlocking game-dominating power, AMD CrossFire harnesses the power of two or more discrete graphics cards working in parallel to dramatically improve gaming performance.

You also need a large power supply min. 500 watt to have enough power.

Please disable the onboard graphic in the device manager.

Good luck

Hello, I am the technician that will be assisting you today. My name is Norman-Wynne Damstra.
Welcome to Fixya, Ichigo.

Since your ASUS mainboard has no onboard VGA graphics adaptor you will need to install the Video/Graphics driver for your Installed Graphics Card.

Find the make and model number of this card and then either place it as a comment to this solution or visit the appropriate manufactures website:

For Geforce graphics: www.nvidia.com
or
For ATI/AMD graphics: www.amd.com

The make and model number can be found on the graphics card. Usually printed on a sticker.

Take care!

I need a diagram of the ASUS M2N-MX Motherboard


A simple and inexpensive motherboard for the enthusiast or the first time builder, the Asus M2N-MX is a great starting point for anyone wanting to build a system or upgrade their motherboard. Designed with the small form factor case in mind, this motherboard will fit into most small desktop systems. Equipped with an AMD socket AM2, suitable for Athlon 64 processors, including the X2 and FX series, it's more than capable of handling anything you can throw in there.

Using the Nvidia GeForce 6100 chipset with integrated graphics in conjunction with up to 4GB of DDR2 memory, the M2N-MX is perfect for those that don't need a discrete graphics card. Audio's onboard, too: hear crystal-clear quality from all your audio - MP3 playback, home theatre, advanced gaming, VOIP and more, and never worry - SoundMAX high-definition audio is there to enhance your experience!

It also includes a 10/100 Ethernet port, onboard 5.1 channel sound, and 4 SATA ports. And because of those 4 ports, by adding multiple hard drives to the system the M2N-MX supports RAID 0, 1, 0+1, 5. The M2N-MX has multiple expansion slots to use including one x16, and one x1 PCIe slots, and two additional PCI slots. Build a powerful system -- the Asus M2N-MX is a great foundation.
