There are difrent speeds of AGP port cards.
agp, agp x2, x4, x8

Video Cards - 4c90fe6.jpg
as the connector is difrent on agp 2x and on 4x you will need to look for a card that is made for agp 2x. Im not sure if they make 256mb cards for agp 2x.

Hi I have a supermicro x8sti Server Board inside


Basically you have two choices for installation of video card:
1. To purchase small form factor PCIe card suitable for installation on 1U server chasis or
2. Purchase PCI express riser card and to install most full-sized PCI Express cards (Check this link for PCI Riser )

Installed new memory it started fine then crashed no video now no beeps upon start up


Such errors of NO VIDEO mean:
- Memory not inserted correctly: pls remove and insert memory again
- Graphics cards possibly moved a bit while you were trying to install the memory: Remove graphics card and insert again.

Another reason could be: Graphics card is brurnt! Perhaps due to touching the chipset with hands full of static electric.
If above 2 suggestions do not work, put your graphics card in another PC and check if it works, if not -bad luck- replace it.

Dell PowerEdge 1600sc server won't boot.


> black screen & flashing cursor ...

Damaged boot-record on the disk-drive???

Was it configured to try to boot from 'A:' ?
Disconnect the hard-drive & CD/DVD drives.
Put a diskette into the drive, and see if it tries to find a boot-record on the diskette.
If it tries, then it has P.O.S.T.'d correctly.

> no beep codes

When it worked, did it beep _once_ when P.O.S.T. completed?

Taking out the RAM _should_ cause some beep codes, i.e., "no RAM".

> anyone?

Replace the monitor?

Replace a dead video-card?
Or, add-in a video-card, and connect a monitor to it, leaving the original monitor connected to the original video-card. One of the two displays should show the P.O.S.T.

How or where in the BIOS do I switch video source to PCI? Old Dell PowerEdge 600SC. Attempting to install new video board.


Most servers (including the 600SC) were not designed for use with add-in video cards, thus, there is no jumpers or BIOS setting to disable the onboard video.

Ibm xseries 235 eserver....all of a sudden stopped booting...it was set up through a kvm swtich, the kvm detects a signal and lights up the apprpriate port, yet nothing is displayed on the monitor....


Please expalin how you know "drives are good" (sic) As it would appear to me that this is indeed your problem? Unless as you say the video card has turned up it's toes. As you said the best way to check that is to enable the onboard Video and check, exactly what happens when you do that? Yes it will automatically use the video, it would install a generic video driver,and show video, are you sure the monitor is OK,have you swapped it out? Simply removing the Video card will automatically enable the onboard video, so you won't need to get inro BIOS. Check the RAM too, and remove any other cards in it.

I have an issue with the Dell PowerEdge 1800 video card. It displayed all the garbages (unreadable words) on the monitor when I first booted up or in the Windows 2003 OS. I went out to buy an EVGA...


Hi ngot01
Not knowing your application or tasking for your server, i cant make a full recommendation. I'm presuming you are not wanting to use this for a gaming machine.
One very determining factor is whether you are running 32bit or 64bit version of 2003. there are some fairly decent choices for cards but some won't support both 32 and 64 bit versions. If you have a particular card in mind, i would recommend first going to the manufacturers website and checking for compatibility with server2003

The geforce 5200 and 5500 from EVGA, PNY both come in PCI version with 128MB or 256MB onboard.
They are getting harder to find but are still to be found for a reasonable price online. i run a 5500 in one of my IBM X series servers dual processor with no hitches and no stability issues.
(32bit/64bit.)
32 bit support using older Nvidia drivers from Nvidia driver archives.
64 bit drivers currently available in latest Nvidia drivers version

The Visiontek Radeon 9250 PCI (ATI chipset) also runs well in both dell and IBM servers from my experience, and comes with 128MB or 256MB onboard.
64 bit support with current ATI drivers
32 bit support from older driver packages found on net.

One of the biggest considerations is whether the card will be properly recognized at first. Video cards and other peripherals behave differently in a server than in a desktop. Just dropping any PCI video card in may cause you some grief in time spent troubleshooting.
Another very important consideration is the video memory on the card.
Your 1800 requires ECC registered memory, but the onboard video memory on the video card can cause a problem when it starts trying to share the system memory. Not always, but this can cause a number problems, most common are blue screens.
Again, without knowing which version of 2003 you are running, i cant offer much more sound advice, because that is the biggest determining factor.
hope this helps, and if i have helped you, please dont forget to rate.

No video on boot up.


Use the other PCI slots. When using 3rd party Video cards, contact the video card vendor to ensure that they do not use "write combining" or "locked" cycles to video memory in their drivers. HP NetServer

I have a HP Proliant ML110 G3 server that will not produce a video display output. I'm plugged into the onboard graghics slot. There are two slots for add on graghics cards, 1 - PCI-E x4 and 1 - PCI-E x16,...


Hello,

Do you have any other PCI cards connected to the server board? If so, make sure they are seated fully in the slot. If they are, try removing all of them and try your server again. A lot of time bad PCI or faulty seated PCI cards will cause your system not to display an image. If you remove the cards and still no video, you may have a bad video port - try a known good PCI video card for testing. If this does not work, you will need a new server board.

Good Luck

Graphic card for IBM X3400(7975I4S)


What type of card are you trying to install? Which slot have you tried it in? IBM servers have designated slots for specific card types like video adapters and RAID controllers. What's the exact model of your server (e.g. 8647-4AX) and what models of video cards do you have?

HP DL380 G4 Video resolution


I'm afraid that the server video cards on these are pretty poor, the only way to improve this is to add a PCI video card (I added a cheap MX440 to a server I run to get around this). If your PCI slots are all filled up then I'm afraid there's really nothing you can do.

You could TRY to decrease the color bit depth, and see if that helps. Often the video drivers don't support detecting when a higher resolution is possible due to a lower bit depth, or the cards don't actually use less storage for them. (the problem is a lack of RAM on the card to hold a full screen full of pixels at a higher resolution.)
