Question about ASUS P4GE-MX Motherboard

System doesn't see AGP card

Hi!

I have a mb ASUS P4GE-MX new; I installed AGP card and set BIOS "AGP display first", but no signal from card and system works only with onboard video (exactly as any card was installed).

I try different AGP cards (ATI 9200 8X 128mb - ATI ... 8X 128mb - TNT RIVA 4X - SILURO GF4MX 4X) and I updated BIOS but it's always the same.

Is there something other to set?

Thanks!

    Hello Pterocarpous

    I tried your links but no solutions: I'm steel looking for a way to disable onboard video.

    AGP card steel "sleep" plugged into moderboard and the only way to see something on my monitor is through onboard video.

    I'll appreciate if you'll continue to work for my solution!

    Thanks!

    Hi Pterocarpous

    I already posted at the AsusTek forums (here the topic).

    I found also SDBmania solution at AsusTek forum and try it but.... nothing...

    I'll wait for your findings. Thankyou!

Hi Flaxx,
i,m glad you got some help with this problem.
This all sounds very sophisticated and Technical. Surely you should be able to enter the system Bios, and change the settings to boot From The AGP Card First Rather Than The PCI Card. Or alternatively consider that you may have a faulty AGP Card or AGP motherboard Slot.
Finally is there Any Onboard Jumpers to Set ??

Good luck mike @ compurepair.

Hello flaxx

I believe you'll need to find a way to disable your integrated (onboard) video in the BIOS. I know there isn't a direct way to do it but, please, see the next link. The user there found a way.

HERE is the way another user accomplished this task. (disabling onboard video). It concerns a different Asus motherboard but, I checked your motherboard manual, those same features are available.

HERE is the AsusTek forum for your motherboard. You can search and post here. There will be other users of that same board there that I'm sure will be able to help you.

HERE is your motherboard manual. However, I didn't see anything that particularly addressed disabling the onboard video.

Please, post back here w/ your results, questions, and any comments, etc.

Thank you
BJ @:)

    Hello flaxx

    How did it go? Did the information and links I provided you w/ enable you to get and AGP card working w/ your Asus motherboard?

    I DO hope that is the case. :) If it isn't, please, post back here and we'll continue to work w/ you.

    If it is the case, would you kindly take just a moment to reward my efforts at helping you w/ a FIXYA rating for my "solution"? I would be very grateful for your kindness and the show of appreciation.

    Thank you once again for using FixYa! Have a beautiful day.

    Hi flaxx



    Thank you for getting back to me. Yes, I'll be happy to look into this issue some more w/ you.



    I'm just popping in at FixYa right now but can't stick around. I can look into this some more this evening and post back w/ my findings.



    In the interim, please, register w/ the AsusTek forums and submit a post regarding the issue you're experiencing. The more resources we use to resolve this issue the better.



    Did you try the BIOS settings THIS person used in order to disable the onboard video? It wasn't a direct "Disable Onboard Video" option. His was a sort of "back door" to accomplishing the task.



    If you haven't done so already, please, try what he did and let me know how it turned out.



    Thank you

Motherboard installation


Hello mecompe,

If you installed an AGP graphics card before your fist boot of the system, you will not receive display. By default the onboard graphics is set to boot display. (If this is the case, remove the AGP graphics card & boot the system). The Asus P4SGX-MX can only use a 4x AGP 1.5volt (only) card.

There is an order of sequences to perform before installing/ adding an AGP graphics card on to the board when the board also uses an integrated graphics card.
First, shut down the system & unplug the power supply from the PC. Connect your monitor to the VGA port at the rear of the board. Remove the AGP card. Re-connect the power supply & boot the system. You should have display? Re-boot the system. As the system starts up press the delete key on the keyboard every 2 seconds. The bios main menu will load. (Open your manual). Go to
section 2.4.3, page 2-20 under Advanced, PCI configuration. Set Primary VGA bios to
[AGP VGA Card]. Save the bios & exit. The system will auto restart. Press & hold the power on/ off button on the PC case until the system shuts off. Unplug the power cord from the PC. Insert the AGP card into the AGP slot. Connect your monitor to the AGP card.
Check all internal data & power cables, (Incase something came loose). Re-connect the power cord & boot the system. You should have display! Install your video software.
If your using the integrated VGA PCI graphics card, go over the bios settings page 2-18 & 2-20.

Need the Asus manual? Click this link;
http://support.asus.com/download/download.aspx?modelname=P4SGX-MX&SLanguage=en-us

To view the manual you'll also need Adobe PDF reader, click this next link for Adobe.
http://www.adobe.com/products/reader/

(The green led (light), means standby. The board is receiving 5volts DC.

If you still do not have display just let me know.
Good luck mecompe!

Pc upgrade


Hi ****, you can increase you system speed slightly (Depending on the total memory speed of the card), by adding an AGP 4x video card & setting your bios to boot to AGP. See page 2-16 in your manual. Change, Init Display First to [AGP]. Doing this will disable the onboard - integrated video card. (Doing this will also free your system memory which is used to run the onboard graphics card). Increasing your system memory to its max of 2GB will help as well. Here is Crucial's memory link for your board. http://www.crucial.com/store/listparts.aspx?model=P4GE-MX You should increase the CPU if at all possible to its max speed in-order to see an over-all increase of system performance. (This is not what you asked for, so I'll only include Asus link for supported CPU's, for the P4GE-MX motherboard). http://support.asus.com/cpusupport/cpusupport.aspx?SLanguage=en-us&model=P4GE-MX Don't expect lighting speed but you will notice game playing speed much better. Programs should load much faster, ECT. Upgrading the AGP must comply with 4x/8x (+1.5volt only). Please see page 1-12 in your manual. Looking for XFX video card is best because it carries a lifetime warranty. Try this link: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814150210 You can continue to search for an XFX Geforce cards. (Best on the market for their lifetime warranty). Good luck ****! Though the AGP slot is faster than a PCI slot, you may find an XFX PCI card with more video memory on it. Some even run DDR3 & DDR3 memory. Mike

AGP installation problems


If you do see the BIOS post but the screen turns black when your OS is loading, then the AGP-card should be OK. HOWEVER, you do need to uninstall your MB-video drivers before installing a new GPU.

Hi jazzcowboy,

Your Asus P4GE-V uses an intergrated graphics card.
Onboard VGA [Auto] Page 4-22. User manual.

If the bios is set to Enabled, the onboard VGA is enabled.
When you add an AGP card your bios will not see it.
You must change the bios setting to [Auto] so the system will see your AGP video card.
To download your manual for the Asus P4GE-V Click the link.

You better off getting an AGP card as your onboard graphics cannot be altered from what i can see and in any case will not be good enough to play most games as the 3d and shader won't is needed
