Problem with FX500 VGA

Dear all...
Please help me with this. I've just bought a new 8VTAI MB and an FX5500,
The mainboard is suposed to support AGP8x, but in the set up page it only shows 2x and 4x. I've updated the MB bios with recent ones (2005,2006) but no result!
CPU is Athlon XP2200+ which can't be recognized with its real frequency. System clk is 133 MHz, and CPU rating automatically goes to 13.gx so I have 1800 MHz instead of 2200 :(
I can't even play my old games :((((
Would you please give me a hand.

In your bios, please enable the
AGP 3.0 Calibration cycle. Also, make sure your Aperture size is correct to the size of the card.

Also, in bios under PC health, check to see what the VAGP is running at, if it is not 1.5v, then your card is not getting enough power.

Also, in the advanced chipset features, make sure that the Init Display First is set to AGP.

When these are all set, reboot and go back into bios, check to see if you can change AGP to 8x now.

I can't find msi geforce fx 5500 driver for windows 7 32 that can work correctly


Hello here is the homepage:

http://www.msi.com/product/vga/FX5500-TD256.html#/?div=Driver&os=All

Here is no drivers for windows 7.

And no driver here, at nvidia:

http://www.nvidia.com/Download/Find.aspx?lang=en-us

You have to buy a new graphic card, to support windows 7.

Good luck

No VGA output


Hello the drivers site is here:

http://www.asrock.com/mb/overview.asp?cat=Download&Model=G41M-VS3

The manual:

http://www.asrock.com/mb/overview.asp?cat=Manual&Model=G41M-VS3

I think you should drop the onboard graphic and install a better graphic card in the 1 x PCI Express x16 slot on the mainboard.

Check the power supply for any fault.Is it new ???
You can not use the old Power supply because it might have a 20 pin connector this asrock has a 24 pin connector.
Check also you not have used the extenal graphic power connector in the 4 pin 12 + volt on the mainboard.
Check also all your power connections.

Reply me again if you can`t find the fault.

Good luck

Dear sir, can i use geforce fx 5500 graphic card in mercury mainboard PI945GCM ?


Unfortunately the Geforce FX5500 is an AGP8X card and the mercury mainboard PI945GCM only supports PCI-Express 16X graphics cards.

You can find a list of all the available Nvidia graphics cards for your motherboard here: http://www.fixya.com/support/r6784358-list_compatible_nvidia_pci_express_16x

Help about mainboard MSI-7312 ver 1.0


ya u can purchase AGP8x graphic card. But
AGP8x slots become old, now PCIExpress 16x is in the market it is better, advance gives higher performance for games and software than AGP gives.
AGP is also costly than PCIE graphic cards.
So, i want to suggest u that u should purchase Intel Original Board
of G965, G45 series boards it has lots of benefits configuration with DDR2, 4SATA ports, PCIE-16x and u not need to purchase graphic card
because these board supports T&L it has 256MB to 384MB inbuilt graphics which can play most of the high graphics games without graphic card. I am to using G965RY board with 384MB inbuilt. but company has stop manufacturing this board. Now more better boards have launched in the market which is better then 965RY.
Now its upon u what to do. Good Luck

XFX GeForce 6200 LE 256mb ddr2 agp8x problem


Your card/ram/mainboard probably can't handle high temperature anymore or has weakened due to overclocking the agp/ram voltage.

Increasing processor's fsb might have an impact on the mainboard and so it has weakened.

You can try to remove the vga and test with onboard vga, if it's still has problems switch the ram (you can borrow your friend's), and finally if it's still has problems switch the mainboard.

No display


Hi st_niclaus,
(Note: ASRock does not list the FX 5500 series AGP graphics card on their web site).
To confirm this please see the VGA supported list at ASRock, click this link:
http://www.asrock.com/mb/vga.asp?Model=775i65gv&s=775&c=VGA
There is an order that should be followed when upgrading from using the onboard video to the AGP card.
Check your bios setting. See Init. Graphic Adapter Priority page 27 & 28 in manual.
Set to: [AGI/PCI/Onboard].
Also see instructions on how to install, AGI slot: on page 17.
AGI = ASRock Graphics Interface.
If your display still does not function after making these changes, it is possible your FX 5500 is not compatible with your board.
(Suggest you buy one from the list provided by ASRock's supported link above).

Good luck st_niclaus!

Mike

My pc doesn't boot up


Did you have onboard video before? What is the video card? AGP8x, AGP4x, PCIe? If you had onboard video, you'll need to change the settings in the BIOS and disable the onboard video. You'll have to plug in at the onboard to access the BIOS.
