How to add second monitor on ECS RS482-M


Doesn't work that way Max.

You can use EITHER the OnBoard Graphics,
OR;
the Add-On Card graphics. (Graphics card)

BIOS will NOT support both at the same time.

If you wish to use dual monitors, get an AGP card that has more than one graphics port on it.

For example, although I'm using a graphics card based on the PCI Express technology, and not AGP technology; my card has a VGA port, DVI port, and HDMI port.

1) VGA Connector; http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/VGA_Connector

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Male_VGA_connector.jpg


2) DVI; http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Digital_Visual_Interface

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Dvi-cable.jpg

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Digital_Visual_Interface#Connector

3) HDMI; http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/HDMI

I use the VGA port, and the DVI port.

RCA EN-V L26HD31, (26 inch HDTV) to the VGA port.
HP 2009M 20 inch Widescreen monitor to the DVI port.

Had to install drivers for HP 2009M.

Let's say I had two DVI ports on the graphics card.
(ATI Radeon HD5450 is the graphics card I have)

But I have a monitor with a VGA cable, and a monitor with a DVI cable.
I would (And have) use a VGA to DVI Adapter.
One example,

http://www.directron.com/dvi.html

Note that the DVI is Male, and the VGA is Female.
The graphics card DVI connector is Female.
The VGA Cable connector is Male.

So.............what is the manufacturer name, and model number of the graphics card; plus what type of monitors are you trying to use?
That is, what type of monitor cables do they have?

Know this;
My HDTV I'm using as a monitor is Digital. However I'm using a VGA cable on it. Best quality would be achieved if I got off my lazy rear, and attached a DVI Cable to it. It uses both.

VGA is Analog. A computer however puts out a digital video signal.
The computer has to convert the digital video signal to an Analog one. This slows the video signal down, and the quality is not as good.

Best to use a digital monitor. (Or a digital monitor WITH a digital cable. DVI Cable. Such as I need to do)

You are also using a PCI Express graphics card, NOT an AGP graphics card.

I'm wrong? OK.

In the meantime turn the computer off, unplug from power, and yank that AGP card out of the slot you put it in.

Tell me what expansion slot on the motherboard you put it in.

The Orange expansion slot on the motherboard, is a PCI-Express x16 slot. Uses a PCI Express graphics card -> ONLY

The white expansions slots are PCI.
Can use a PCI graphics card. CANNOT use an AGP graphics card.

Asus P4T533-c motherboard fans hard drive everything turns on and fires up but no picture on monitor tried many video cards everything is set right tried in the case out of the case still nothing any ideas


This MB is designed for a 1.5V AGP 2.0 video card. The card slot is keyed to prevent installation of an incompatible board, but there were some older AGP 1.0 cards that use 3.3V that had dual key slots and could be inadvertently installed in the AGP 2.0 slot. If this happens you will damage the MB. Only you can check to see if ths may have been what happened as you say you had tried many Video Cards.

Do i have a slot (agp slot?) on my gt5620 computer? Iam trying to install a ati graphics card


Hi there,

Your computer is too resent to have an AGP port. They used that on earlier generation.

What you have on your board is a PCI Express x16 to add a more powerfull graphic card it will be the longest port usually the first on top.

Beware that on computer like those make shure that the power supply can take the load of the new graphic card.

No display on monitor & if ram open and restart on then no sound on buzzer.


*Please Read full post before trying Also download the Online manual for this motherboard it takes only a minute and probably will answer a lot of questions you might have regarding *********** Board.*

Um... i am assuming your able to still see the display on the monitor if you plug your monitor into the on board video card. I am also assuming that the problem your talking about accursed when you plug in a video card into *********** board and then plug your monitor into that video card. I am also assuming your graphics card that you want to plug into *********** board is a AGP slot card.

If both of these conditions apply to you then try this.

Start your computer with your on board graphics card and unplug any other graphics card form *********** board.
Next go into your bios, and follow these instructions:

Go to "Advanced", "Chipset", And then "AGP configuration".

Next change your "Select AGP 3.0 Data Ratio" to "4X".

Next change your "Graphics Adapter Priority" to "AGP/Int-VGA"
*make sure its set to" AGP/Int-VGA" or your display will not work and you will need to reset your bios via the mother boards jumper cables.*

After that hit esc and go to "Exit" select "Exit

My monitor has a blank screen


If you have another PC, you can check the monitor with it. If the monitor works on the other PC, you are probably having a problem with the on-board video. It appears that you don't have any AGP or PCI-E slots available. You could try a PCI video card but you won't get the same performance as if it was an AGP or PCI-E slot.

Ok will try it.. I


It's not a guarantee, no, but it will allow you to narrow down the cause if it isn't the VGA card (as it will then narrow down the problem to either the monitor, or the board itself). If you can, try putting the card into a different slot (assuming you have more than one of the AGP/PCI/PCIe slot it goes into)

Nothing on screen, fan running on processor, hard drive trying to load OS


Hi Eagleboy, I wouldn't suggest buying a board on ebay. If things do not work out you'll spend more for shipping to & back just returning it rather than buying a new AGP4x video card.
You can double check the AGP slot. Get a strong flashlight. Look down into the slot, check for bent copper retainers, dirt & dust. You can also check & make sure the retainers almost touch each other from their oppsite sides. This is where you can help the AGP card get a tight fit. Clean both the AGP cards copper contacts & the slots copper retainers. Use house hold alcohol & some cotton swabs. Blow out the slot well
I'm guessing that you set the bios up correctly when you were using the AGP card & reset the bios when you went back to using the MB's VIA UniChrome Graphics. I agree with you, no need for a new PSU or HD. Shame you can not test your AGP card in another PC. If you can't do that than buy another AGP4x card & install it. http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/category/category_slc.asp?CatId=879&Nav=|c:318|c:694|&Sort=0&Recs=10

This is all a suggestion. If you feel the board is bad & replacing it sits well with you. (Do what you think is best).
Here are some compatable boards I have come across. I am unaware what CPU you are using.
