Mother board not seeing my pcix card

Hi there i seem to have a wee bit of a tricky one here. I have an geforce 6100sm-m mother board and an nvidia pcix 8600gt which will not show any display when my monitor is plugged in ive tried updating drivers for the mb and the graphic card, the problem all started when the machine was powered down manually while in the middle of freezing during an standard prog installation ive since then put new o/s on win vista ultimate 32b but the mother board only sees the on board graphics the 4100 onboard chip and sees the graphics card as a standard graphics adapter ive been all over the geforce site with no soloution to the problem has any one had the same issue as me or has any 1 got any ideas of how to solve this been at it for ages i think it may be the pcix port driver or arrrrr i dont know tried bios aswell for geforce

    Hi thanks for the reply tried what was said went to link and downloaded the bios version how ever this was the same version i had already installed. I also tried using the settings in the bios that was sugested but ive still got the same issue. How ever in the bios under advanced chipset ops there was no setting for onboard gpu to be set to read only enable if no and enable always ??!! :-( ive been on this prob all day again and begining to think that i may have a hardware fail of some sort im in the process again of looking at drivers via driver genius hope this will maybe turn up something thanks very much for your input and any outher sugestions would be very nice ...............

Hi crazieedd, the answer to you're problem is this. Go to ECS's web site. Click on this link for you're GeForce6100SM board.
http://www.ecsusa.com/ECSWebSite/Products/ProductsDetail.aspx?detailid=685&DetailName=Bios&MenuID=7&LanID=9
Another user I tried to help did have the same problem as you. Though ECS does not mention there is a fix for this issue. ECS did email the user to update the bios file. (I looked at the last 2 bios updates & there is no mention of how to run the PCI-E & disabling the onboard video fix mentioned. According to ECS you are to upgrade the bios file to its most recent. That said, once the bios file has been flashed. (Preferred option is to use a floppy disk). You are to go into the bios to Advanced Chipset Features
Than to, Onboard GPU set this to read, [Enable If no Ext GPU]
Save & exit the bios.
Having this set to, Enable If No Ext GPU & using a PCI-E card plugged in to the system automatically disables the onboard video card. (Don't you just love it when the Mfg does not list this type of major fix)?
Please keep in mind the other user was not running Vista. No one has mentioned to you how bad Vista (any version) is! You may not have any troubles with Vista. Let's hope it stays that way.

Good Luck crazieedd!

Computer don't start,


If it doesn't start at all, check motherboard for a short by unplugging the processor power cable (4 pin normally), and turn the computer on. If the fans start rotating, it is probably a short. If that isn't the problem, check for cables that should be connected, and test the processor in another computer. Hope it works (it did for me)

I have china motherboard why window7 not take video grapics 945-15 p4


the drivers might not be installed correctly you might have to uninstall the graphics card restart your computer then reinstall the graphics card and its drivers
If your computer came with a motherboard disc the drivers could be on it Click start control panel administrive tools computer management device manager scroll to display adapters + to expand you might see a yellow question mark ? or exclamation mark ! or a red x right click select reinstall drivers

Or your graphics might not be seated properly or have a dirty socket

might be a compatability issue 32 bit or 64 bit you could try these 32 and 64 bit

sounds like yo had the same Problems that I had with my 5200 geforce The install did not go well. what was happening was the direct x was binding to the old mother board graphics system and not the new card . to make it rebind just change the refresh rate in the nvidia icon in your task bar . disable the display adapter from device manager for the motherboard graphics .put the card in the slot change the monitor cord boot up check you direct x by typing in run dxdiag and test directx to be sure it is running with your card you can also see that from the about nvidia you must have the driver for the card installed to do all this.. hope I helped install the driver first then disable download latest drivers here http://www.nvidia.com/Download/index5.aspx?lang=en-us

If you are using Dual Core the mother board you are using may have PCI Express Slot. So that you may install Graphics card. Only for particular lower end mother board doesn't have this feature. Any way tell me your motherboard make and model no. e.g., Intel DG31PR, 945GNT, DG41TY etc.,

If you try to clean install Windows 7 RC x64 from DOS (by booting from the DVD you made), it will install alright and finds the correct driver automatically if your internet connection is available. Or, you can also download the correct x64 bit driver from nvidia to get all Win7 features.
