Question about ASUS P5VD2-MX SE Motherboard

1 Answer

8400GS graphics card installed causing sound distortion

8400GS graphics card causes gross distortion to Start-Up sound and other sounds when in Windows Basic mode.
Other sounds OK in Windows Aero mode, but Start-Up sound still bad.
Remove 8400GS and everything reverts back to normal, but can't get Aero because onboard graphics is only 64meg.
I'm running Vista Home Premium, have 1024 meg Ram, 3.2 gig dual core, 180 gig hard drive, don't think it's the sound card, have tried several different types, all work.
Motherboard of course is: ASUS P5VD2-MX SE Is there a solution please.

You do know you can increase your integrated video's memory in the bios. Up to 1GB. (Yes, I know you currently only have 1GB of system memory) but you can kick it up to 128Mb & Vista should still run.
Your 1GB system memory is shared with the on-board video card.
I'd like you to clean out the PCI-E slot with some cotton swabs & house hold Alcohol. (do not over soak the swabs). Clean the pny's copper contacts as well. Get a really strong flash light & look into the PCI-E slot & look for dust, dirt & check the copper connectors are not bent or twisted. Re-install the PCI-E card & set the bios back to PCI-E. Try again. Even if the system reverts to weird, install the 8400's software & driver. Re-start the system. See if the system runs normal. Also would not hurt to check for Window's updates. After all that, if system does not function normally I suspect there is something wrong with the 8400 card.

Good luck & let me know if this has helped.
Have a great day.

Does the DG31PR motherboard support Geforce 8400GS 512MB PCI-E?


Yes, but check your BIOS and make sure the PCI-E slot is enabled.

Also, when you say doesn't start, you mean just the screen? Right?

You need the latest display driver for your graphics card.

Click here to download the drivers off the Nvidia website.

Enter the information in the fields as shown below;

Product Type: Geforce
Product Series: Geforce 8 Series
Product: 8400GS
Operating System: Select the operating system you are using. XP or 7 whichever it is.
Language: Choose your Language, English

Then click search and download and install the driver.

This should solve your problem!

Do do recommend sticking with XP as your current computer system will find it difficult to run Windows 7.

All the Best!

Games crashing and icons on my desktop scattering


hi this does sound like your graphics card has a conflict with another device, your best bet would be to go to the site of your graphics card manufacturer and download the latest drivers for your card, un-install ( actually delete ) the graphics card from the system, ie...add and remove programs, look for drivers for your graphics card, then remove, also go to your device manager and delete it from the hardware so there is no trace of it ( don't worry it will still work it will just default to minimal settings on re-boot) re-boot the system, if it says found new hardware and tries to install your card click no you don't want to install it, then find where you downloaded the drivers and install them and then that should stop the blue screens, games..this also could be the sound card has a conflict with something, as i know allot of games just crash to the desktop for this reason, try doing the same for the sound card, download, remove and install, as above...any more probs just reply and i will see what else there is, if you can also post the blue screen error on here to will be helpful as you can determine what the cause is...hope this helps

Upgrading graphics card onto gx280 motherboard


You need to find a "PCI Express" video card. Your Motherboard does not have an AGP slot. There are lots of them to choose from. Better to pay more now and get more memory on the video card than to regret the purchase and buy another one. IMHO

Computer graphics ,lots of colors then computer crashes i have a asus 8400gs card


Drivers most likely, remove the card and use the onboard or some other card that works. Then boot into windows and install the drivers for the new card, then power off, install the card in question and reboot and then try.

Drivers for audio and video are causing lockups and restarts in Windows XP


I think it's the usual problem of a sound and graphics driver conflict. What has probably happened is Windows update has updated sound drivers for your mobo, and they don't always work well. If you still have the motherboard cd, install the original drivers for both sound and video, or download from your mobo's web site, but make sure you uninstal the present drivers first. If all fails i think your right to install an AGP graphics card and dissable the onboard graphics, as they are only cheap for a decent 128Mb or 256MB card. If you wish to check the sound and graphics click Start> Run, then type 'dxdiag' without quotes in the 'OPEN' box then press enter. This will test all sound and video as well as drivers. Good luck, don't give up.
