EliteGroup ECS GeForce6100SM-M video problems

I installed a geforce 7300 into this mobo. I changed the bios setting to "enable if no GPU", disabled the onboard video, then enabled the 7300. I plugged it up and got 1/2 blue screen. while it was still on I switched to the on board video and it was still on. I tried to change the frame buffer size to 0 but the lowest value was 16. I still got 1/2 blue screen.

You are the fourth person I have helped with this board. One would think that ECS would have this posted on their site. Please update you're bios. Click on this link: http://www.ecs.com.tw/ECSWebSite/Products/ProductsDetail.aspx?detailid=685&DetailName=Bios&MenuID=1&LanID=9
Two user's tried 2 different settings & each worked out fine. You made the correct setting in you're bios. After flashing the bios to the latest bios file. Re-check you're settings. You may find you're setting will function. If not you will have to change the bios setting to Enable. According to ECS the bios will automatically turn off the onboard video. As I mentioned, this does & does not work. Try both settings if Disable fails to load with out the blue screen.

Good Luck!

Well there is 2 scenarios, first one: pci-e port is not good, or is not making any contact with the pins of the GC; second one, GC is not working properly or you have a warranty to claim!

Hi geminip3, you need to make a couple bios changes when using a PCI-E graphics card. Still have your manual? Go to page 36. Advanced Chipset Features. Onboard GPU (Enable If No Ext GPU). By adding a PCI-E card this should be set to Disable. Than go to page 44. Init Display First (PCI Slot), set this to [PCI-E]. Read each page.
Than save your bios & exit. The system will auto restart. If you do not see display, wait about a minute & remove the monitor cable to the second out put slot. Some PCI-E cards need more power than the PCI-E motherboard slot can provide. You may find a power port on the PCI-E card. Some look just like the power cord for a floppy, others look like the power cord for an IDE hard disk drive. The latest ones are black in color & one end connects to an opened 4-pin molex (IDE power cord). Let’s address the onboard video card. (No PCI-E card attached). Back to page 36. Onboard GPU should be set to [Enable]. Page 44. Set Init Display First to [VGA/PCI]. Page 45. PCI/VGA Palette Snoop, set to [Disable]. I was unable to find where in the bios one can set the amount of system memory to run the onboard VGA. ECS manual is not the easiest to work with. Note: Ihave worked on other ECS MB's & though the above information has worked out ok for some, its not worked out for others. If the above suggestions do not work out, suggest you call ECS tech. I have emailed ECS stating their manual is confusing & asked for them to explain bios settings for VGA & PCI-E. Correct bios settings for your MB & user jrl1261's MB GeForce6199PM-M2. If the above settings do not work out. Don't fret. ECS wil get back to me & I'll post their email here.

Mother board not seeing my pcix card


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!

Switching Video cards


Hello again RickKelley,
Think of it like this.
The board uses the onboard's GPU (Video card).
When you add a video card you want to use the new video card's GPU.
There are three settings for the onboard GPU page 36 in user manual.
Onboard GPU must be set to, Disable ,(press enter while haveing Enable high lighted) choose Disable.
Frame buffer size drop to zero (0).
You stated the only other option is (always enable). That does not match with what is typed in the manual. To download you're manual for you're ECS GeForce6100SM-M click on this link.
http://www.ecs.com.tw/ECSWebSite/Products/ProductsDetail.aspx?detailid=685&DetailName=Manual&MenuID=1&LanID=9
Please go to page 36.
ECS would not need these settings if the board didn't have PCI-E slots.
Take another look after you download the manual.

Video Card Chnage


Hi Rick, you need to disable the onboard video from within you're bios. Please go to page 28 in you're manual. This will show you how to enter the bios menu. Once there go to page 26, where you will find. Onboard GPU (Enable If No Ext GPU) set this to Disable. Save & exit you're bios. You're system will auto restart. Once windows has finished loading, install the driver software for you're PCIE card. Suggest you check for updated driver software for you're PCIE video card.

If I can help you further, feel free to post.
Suggestions & comments welcomed.

Hmm, this may sound weird, but usually beep codes mean 1 of 2 things... memory problems or video problems. So if it is beeping and you have no display on the video, I would think, just maybe, it might be a video problem. =)

It looks to me like this board has onboard video, so are you using the onboard video or are you installing a video card?

If using onboard, perhaps, when you go into the bios to setup, you should set it to fail-safe defaults for the video.

If installing video, you should disable the onboard in the bios. But before doing that, maybe you should hold off on installing the video card until after you get the system up and running and then install the video card drivers before installing the video card. Then you can make changes to the bios video settings.

You might also want to upgrade your power supply, but 300 Watts will work for this board -- just barely but it will work.
So maybe you should disconnect everything but the bare necessities to get started.
