Having trouble with my MSI 865pe neo2 motherboard

I recently changed my graphics board and down loaded windows xp pro everything went fine, but while windows is booting it freezes on the startup page the little green bar just stops and thats it. I think it's in the bios setup I'm not sure what to do because I lost my users manuel. Please HELP!

Do you have a pci express or agp card? Just go into your BIOS and look for your graphics settings. You want the settings to have your type of card as number one. Save and exit. Continue to boot. If it boots but doesn't recognize the card it will just install a generic driver. Now you can install your driver for the card. If it boots normally and you indtalled the driver already...great. If it doesn't boot, reboot and hit F8. Highlight safe mode and hit enter. Remove the driver you installed.Reboot normally and if it boots, try re-installing the driver. If that doesn't work you may have the wrong driver. If any of this solved your problem please rate this as fixed to right of my post. If it didn't and you need more help just add a comment and I'll be more than happy to help. Thanks.

Dear Slerpie

Im pretty sure you are right when you mention about your BIOS setting.

What you need to do is to remove the graphics card and ensure that the BIOS is set to onboard VGA and save it. Once you have done this, you should try to restart windows, if i fails, then you will need to re-install the operating system.

Once you are sucessfully logged into windows, you can then try installing the drivers for the GPU card (Graphics Processing Unit video card) and then shutting the system down. Once you have powered off the system, you install the card, and configure in the CMOS/ BIOS to display the graphics card on either PCIEX or AGP (depending on your motherboard type) and then restart the system. Windows should then load up with little or no problems at all. Some cards may state that you have to load the drivers after you insert the card, but you can find the manuals for these on the GPU vendor/ manufacturer website.and it is as simple as that

All you have to do is make sure that your card is compatable with the rest of your system environment, and that your monitor is plugged into the correct socket on your video card if you have more than one output. Certain cards have DVI outputs, and if your monitor is VGA, then you will need a 15pin D-Sub male to DVI male adapter/ connector, and these are available cheaply online.

Should you have any issue relating to this upgrade, please do mail/ message me back and i will endeavour to help you on this issue, im available 24hrs a day 7/365 days a year.

I hope this works for you.

Is MSI 865PE Neo2-V motherboard support graphic work?

Most of the applications that you have specified above use high amount of the memory. If you are using vista this makes it even worse. Get another 512MB RAM and install it in the next DIMM slot and it will be alright. 512MB Ram should cost you around 500-700Rs.
