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 installed windows 7 but my vga(via p4m266a) doesn't support how can i fix it


Hello if it is this mainboard:

http://www.asrock.com/mb/VIA/M266A/?cat=Download

It`s to old to run windows 7 with the onboard graphic.
And the driver does not supports windows 7.

You can add a new graphic card in the agp 4X
socket on the mainboard.

Just make sure the graphic card driver supports 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

You need the full mainboard number and sometimes socket type.

You can also try windows update. Or you can buy a used or new videocard beware what socket you have on the mb.There is 2 different types: AGP or PCI-E slot.

Good luck

My asrock m266a having problem with the graphic card


Any card with an AGP interface is supported, just that the power of a new video card is severely limited by the capabilities of the motherboard and everything else on it (processor, memory, hard disk).
Ge-force FX5500 256MB is a good card but you can get something a little more powerfull, something like

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

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!

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.
