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.

About geforce 8400gs gen2 tc1g 64bit ddr2, it is okey to run in window7 32bit. i already install and run but only read 512mb.


There should be no reason why this card won't work with Windows 7 32bit, it could be as simple as your Graphics drivers are out of date. I recommend downloading the latest Windows 7 drivers for your card at the Nvidia website.

Just remember graphics RAM and SDRAM are two completely different things so they don't add up.
As far as I know the 8400GS is a 256MB card.

That can not be the right driver for your video card. I suggest you roll back to its previous driver. Look for the latest version of the driver for your video card.

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.

Graphics card.


For your sound card how many plug in openings are you using on your card?If only 1 is all, than that is why.Try re-downloading your soft ware.If your running Vista, than your problem is that,Vista,just like XP started out ,many many incompatible issues with the operating system that will fix them selves with more time.Secondly your graphics problem:Are you using Vista????
You now have a start ,not stating what operating system your running is one problem.
