No the P4MV890 is very differant
then the P4MV8. People like myself & others at FixYa need the correct model number to find the correct soulation. The P4MV8 has an AGP slot & the Integrated VIA® UniChrome Pro 3D/2D Graphics. The P4MV890 does not have a APG8x. I posted everything you need to correct lockups. I'll past it here for you:
sleepoholic, this is what you need to do. You can not run both at the same time. The Integrated VIA® UniChrome Pro 3D/2D Graphics & the PCIExpress. This is why your getting lock-ups. Enter your Bios setup menue. Go to the Advanced section. Pg. 25 in your manual. You'll see PCIPaP Configurations. Click it & than click
PCIE/PCI operatin mode. From factory it is set to [Async.mode]. Click on it & see what other options you have. You want to set the PCIExpress card first. Not the UniChrome Pro. Your on board UniChrome Pro is using your system
memory. You no longer need to do that. The UniChrome Pro is not like an AGP card, which is a lesser card compaired to the PCIE. And theUniChrome car is a PCI, which is a lower end card compaired to the AGP. Your CPU
& PCIE have a direct link to each other. OK? The AMR slot is for a modem. Most people do not use the AMR, they just use the PCI slot. AMR is supposed to be able to transfer data faster. (Sure!).Here is the link to your board: http://www.asrock.com/mb/overview.asp?Model=P4VM890
Post back if you still have questions. Enjoy!
