Go into the BIOS and disable the on-board video. With the system powered off, turn on the system and hit enter when it says "To interrupt normal startup, press Enter". Alternatively, press F1 on startup. Turn off the system if you get to the login screen and try again. Go through the BIOS menu to enable the AGP slot. (IIRC go to the line for Video and toggle On-board or AGP. My system is a A50p but it's been a while since I put in my video card.) Then exit the BIOS (save your changes) and shut down the system.

Do this step before adding the new card. Make sure that your power supply is sufficient to support the video card (and attach the power cable to the card). Make sure the card is fully seated in the slot.

If you continue to have a problem, go to the site and download the diagnostic program and see if you have a hardware issue with the slot or the card. http://www-307.ibm.com/pc/support/site.wss/product.do?subcategoryind=0&familyind=121127&brandind=11&doccategoryind=0&modelind=0&doctypeind=9&validate=true&partnumberind=0&sitestyle=lenovo&template=%2Fproductpage%2Flandingpages%2FproductPageLandingPage.vm&operatingsystemind=49979&machineind=139045 under Diagnostics in the drop down menu.

I hope this helps.

Is there always a free slot for a video card on motherboards that have integrated video cards


Most motherboards have expansion slots, you need to identify the type of expansion slots that are installed eg. PCI. AGP etc.
If your motherboard has an AGP slot (this slot is for graphics card) then purchase an AGP graphics card.
You may need to disable the on-board graphics card in the BIOS setup.

Anybody know how to enable the AGP slot on an IBM NetVista 8305? Thanks.


1.
Shut down your computer and reboot to the BIOS. Reach the BIOS by pressing the Access IBM button on your keyboard or by pressing the F11 key.
2.
Use the arrow keys to scroll though the options to locate the video VGA graphic chip set. Follow the onscreen instructions to save the new BIOS settings.
3.
Turn off the machine after the BIOS settings have been saved. Unplug the power cord from the electrical socket.
4.
Open the side access panel of the Net Vista. On some models the panel will slide off; on others you may have to loosen the two thumbscrews holding it in place. If you have a desktop configuration instead of a tower, slide the top cover off the machine.
5.
Remove the existing AGP graphics card from the machine. You may need to use a screwdriver to remove the screw holding the card in place.
6.
Locate the proper slot for the new card. The new card may use the same AGP slot or use a PCI slot. If necessary, remove the dust cover for the selected slot with a screwdriver.
7.
Slide the new card into the slot. Screw the holding screw into place if the card requires one.
8.
Plug your monitor into the connection on the card. Plug the machine into the power source and turn the Net Vista on. Follow the onscreen instructions for installing the proper drivers if needed by your operating system. Replace the side panel when everything is working properly

Please rate me if this solution works for you

Thanks......Have a great time.

Need help with new AGP video card for T3092 E-machines desktop


You should go in to your start-up bios and ensure the on-board video is disabled. The computer will auto-detect the video card but if the on-board video is enabled then it will cause a conflict. Let me know what happens. Good luck.

Can a R9550 Sapphire graphics card fit to optiplex 170L


It is possible you can etheir find an agp of the appropriate generation for your video card and attempt to solder it into the board. Even then you will need to re-program the bios to recognize it. Would be very difficult to do though as you would need to know how to code the eprom in machine language.

IBM Thinkcentre m50 video card


Hi, i'm getting an ATI Radeon 2600XT for this system soon. But any AGP card *should* work fine (i'm hoping), just stick to midrange cards due to the low-grade power supply. I will post after the install and let you know how it goes.
