Video card installation

I've got an ATI Radeon x1600 PRO AGP video card that I'm trying to install, but I'm having a hell of a time with it.

Is the card even compatible with the board, or perhaps there's something else blatantly obvious that I'm missing?

Hi Vigilante - Please don't rate this 'til it's fixed. Have you disabled the onboard video in the BIOS?

Video card


The MSI KT4V motherboard is an AGP board supporting 4x/8x AGP. You cannot use a newer PCI-Express Video Card, however an Nvidia GeForce FX 5500 either PCI or AGP will run just fine in it. The NVidia FX 5500 doesn't come in PCI-E. Additionally The ATI Radeon 9550 doesn't come PCI-E so you should be safe with AGP versions of either. I should note however, that you'll get better performance out of the ATI Radeon 9550 as opposed to the NVidia FX 5500.

I hope this answers your question,

Hi noxiney, you're MSI motherboard does have 1 opened AGP 8x4x slot. You can install & run the ATI Radeon X1650 PRO AGP. You can not run PCI-Express because there are no PCI-E slots on the board. There are PCI (White in color) on the board but the AGP slot is much faster than the PCI (White in color slots). The manual states the AGP card can only support 1.5volt video cards & not 3.3volt AGP cards. (Keep this in mind when looking for an AGP card).
Below is a link to a bunch of AGP 8x4x video cards. One or two include DDR2 memory. Carefull where you buy. Check the warranty. (Longer is better). The first one on the list would be compatible. Its not DDR2 but it does have 512MB of memory.

This card is 1.5v compatable.

& this is compatable.
http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/SearchTools/item-details.asp?EdpNo=1642902&CatId=318
Just remember, if the card can run both 8x & 4x it should support the 1.5volt needed to function on the MB.

Enjoy!

Graphics card support to motherboard D845GBV


AGP 2.0 and 3.0 4x and 8x feed with the 1.5v spec. AGP 1.0 1x and 2x was fed at 3.3v. In short, you should be fine.

Before removing your current card swap video outputs on the PC. If currently connected to the VGA output switch to the HDMI connector AT the video card. Use the HDMI to VGA adapter that came with the video card. Check & see if the display loads Pc starts. Taking the information directly from your motherboard manual pg. 25, your AGP video can only run at, AGP supporting 1.5 V 4X AGP cards. The 9600pro runs at 8x & it is not backwards compatible. (able to run at either 8x or 4x). You could run the Sappire ATI Radeon 256MB 9550 DDR AGP 4x/8x 1.5volt card.
Here is one site: http://www.colordrives.com/sapphire-ati-radeon-9550-256mb-ddr-agp-4x-8x-video-card---retail-box.html
When you do get the video card be sure to set your bios AGP to the correct size as listed in your manual pg. 109 subsection 4.4.7
I hope this helped.

AGP 8x not supported


Just a thought, but have you tried going into the bios setup and setting bios to system defaults or safe setting, saving and rebooting?
