Netvista AGP slot disabled

I bought several used Netvista computers (8315) on which the AGP slot is present but according to Lenovo support it is disabled. Does anyone know a way to force the AGP on? A BIOS reload? A motherboard mod? What?

    Thanks for trying, but the BIOS specified for this motherboard by IBM (Lenovo) does not even recoginize the existence of the AGP slot, even though it is physically present on the MB. I will be trying to load a BIOS for a slightly different model to see if that works.

    Same Problem I had too. I upgraded the BIOS off the IBM website but there still is no setting for enabeling the AGP slot. I did see that there is a note stating if the slot contained a plug then the AGP functionality is not available due to the Intel 845GL chipset. If you figure out a work arounf let me know. email barry@rinsurance.net

I added an FX 5200 256Mb AGP card to a 8307, and the Bios allowed me to enable the AGP port. And reports the device working properly.

In the bios there should be a place that lets you enable onboard AGP

What type of video card is compatible with compaq cq5600f. VGA output broke off from mother board, trying to bypass with video card.


If your motherboard has spare expansion slots especially if it has an AGP expansion slot then get a AGP video card, there are several makes and models on the market with different performance especially if you play games etc.
I suggest you go to a computer shop or Google the Internet to see what is available and at what price range.
You may need to disable the video on the motherboard in the BIOS setup.

Anybody know how to enable the AGP slot on an IBM NetVista 8305? Thanks.


1.
Shut down your computer and reboot to the BIOS. Reach the BIOS by pressing the Access IBM button on your keyboard or by pressing the F11 key.
2.
Use the arrow keys to scroll though the options to locate the video VGA graphic chip set. Follow the onscreen instructions to save the new BIOS settings.
3.
Turn off the machine after the BIOS settings have been saved. Unplug the power cord from the electrical socket.
4.
Open the side access panel of the Net Vista. On some models the panel will slide off; on others you may have to loosen the two thumbscrews holding it in place. If you have a desktop configuration instead of a tower, slide the top cover off the machine.
5.
Remove the existing AGP graphics card from the machine. You may need to use a screwdriver to remove the screw holding the card in place.
6.
Locate the proper slot for the new card. The new card may use the same AGP slot or use a PCI slot. If necessary, remove the dust cover for the selected slot with a screwdriver.
7.
Slide the new card into the slot. Screw the holding screw into place if the card requires one.
8.
Plug your monitor into the connection on the card. Plug the machine into the power source and turn the Net Vista on. Follow the onscreen instructions for installing the proper drivers if needed by your operating system. Replace the side panel when everything is working properly

Please rate me if this solution works for you

Thanks......Have a great time.

IBM NetVista MT-M 8313-B3U How do I get the VGP slot to work? My computer works great, but I can not get the VGP slot to work. None of my VGP cards work in the slot.


Restart the computer, and enter BIOS SETUP mode.
Change the setting to make the AGP adapter the "first" priority,
rather than the built-in video-adapter.

I went and bought new ram for my computer. it's an IBM desktop. type 6792. a pc133 512MB sdram. my computer will not pick it up. how do i get the computer to pick up the ram? it is the right kind of ram?


I checked at http://www.buffalotech.com/products/memory/select/select-dimm/ and according the the memory configurator there your IBM Netvista 6792 takes this type of memory which can be ordered from them PC-133mhz SDRAM DIMM 168 pin, it indicated that your pc has 3 slots for memory and the maximum size you can put in each slot is 512 MB which would give you the maximum memory of 1536 MB. I have had problems in the past when replacing memory in IBM PC's some modules won't work because IBM uses different memory than other Manufacturers. But give Buffalo a try, their memory is guaranteed.

I don't think there's a 8x AGP card made that would not work at 4x, and any 4x capable AGP slot should handle an 8x card. AGP 1.0 (x2) signals at 3.3V AGP 2.0 (x4) signals at 1.5V AGP 3.0 (x8) signals at 0.8V
