The onboard video card is out on this motherboard, which I have seen happen in a few of these that we ordered back in 2004. I need to get a compatible card, but need to know what is compatible with this motherboard
A 1.5v video card has two seperate copper connectores, not counting the tail lock. If there are three seperate copper connectors not counting the tail lock. It is not a 1.5 volt video card. So check out the picture of a card before you buy.
This next link will take you directly to Asus web site for your board. Manual, drivers ect. http://support.asus.com/download/download.aspx?modelname=P4SGX-MX&SLanguage=en-us

hook monitor cable back to your onboard video port then 1st make sure you have already downloaded the driver for your new graphics card. then at start up go into system setup and go to your display and make sure that you have your new graphics card enabled as your primary graphics instead of onboard video. it will say something like 1.Onboard 2. AGP/OR PCI MAKE SURE YOU DONT HAVE YOUR ONBOARD ENABLED AS YOUR PRIMARY VIDEO. AFTER THAT JUST SAVE AND EXIT THE JUST HOLD POWER BUTTON DOWN TILL PC SHUTS DOWN THEN SWITCH YOUR CABLE MONITOR CABLE FROM THE ONBOARD TO THE AGP/PCI CARD THEN RESTART YOUR PC. THEN YOUR PC WILL SAY FOUND NEW DATA AND WILL INSTALL THE DRIVER YOU HAVE DOWNLOADED FOR IT THEN YOU SHOULD BE OK IF THE CARD IS COMPATIBLE WITH THE MOTHERBOARD
Does your system support the following minimum requirements for playing the game?
800 MHz Intel Pentium III or 800 MHz AMD Athlon or 1.2GHz Intel Celeron or 1.2 GHz AMD Duron processor
128 MB of RAM
8 speed CD / DVD drive
915 MB of free hard disk space
(+ 635 MB if video card does NOT support DirectX Texture Compression)
32 MB video card with DirectX 9.0 compatible drivers ("GeForce" or better)
Sound Card with DirectX 9.0 compatible drivers Keyboard & Mouse
Your motherboard has
Intel® Extreme Graphics 2 controller as the onboard graphics controller. Search the Internet whether it is capable of rendering the graphics in order to play the game and latest drivers for your onboard graphic card are installed.
So you can no onboard video when using the onboard connection right? and no video using an external video card also right? In this case, the promblem lay with the motherboard/ram/cpu and not with your video card. Try resetting the bios via taking out your cmos battery or shorting the cmos pin to see if a miracle would happen and the system would post. If not and if you have another board with compatible hardware, then you can try testing out the cpu, the rams. If you hear beeps when starting up the system, try to take note of it and look up on the internet via what bios make it is, and decode the beep error for what is wrong. If you don't her any beep, the other way only to know what is wrong is having another compatible board to test your cpu/ram, or make sure the ram and cpu you are using is supported by the asrock motherboard. If you do have another board to test your cpu/ram and even the video card, and they work, then your motherboard is scrap and needs to be replaced.
For one, what you can do is put in your old card. Install the NEW drivers for your 9500GT and shutdown. Install new Graphics card. (I would double check for an "ATX" power input on the card.)(, im sure it needs one) and that should hopefully help, Also consult your motherboard booklet and your graphics card booklet to see if the card is compatible. Hope this helps!
Have you installed the drivers for new graphics card?go to the mother board web site and download lateset drivers for the motherboard not from cd.if not working then you need to go into the bios and turn off onboard video.that will keep conflicts from occuring between onboard graphics and video card.need more help with this contact me here.RICHARDM69
