Lost internet connection - after installing graphic card

I have a ECS l4vxa2 ver 1.0 motherboard. I changed my video card to a nvidia 6200 OC (pci) card and lost my internet connection.

I've tried my cable co and router tech support. They say it has something to do with the motherboard or graphic card. Spoke with graphic card tech support they say something about graphic card taking power away from ethernet. I switched back to my old card and still no connection - their tech support says issue with power being taken away by graphic card but would not tell me how to solve the problem - said not their cards fault.

Please help

My graphics card is not being recognized. Im using a ECS 945P-A Ver: 3.0 motherboard which has no on board video output. im using a Zotac Technology GEforce 7300 GT graphics card too. Do I need a powe


I don't believe that graphic cards of that level need PCI-EX power directly from the power supply (using a power supply cable with a PCI-EX connector). This is a good thing, but that's because this is a low-level card--one that likely needs nVidia legacy drivers: It's likely that active driver support has ended. (The same is true for legacy AMD/ATi cards--and other more ancient cards, as well. ((PCI or AGP) Sabre, 3DFX, etc.)

If you're using the VGA port--perhaps the card's DVI port is needed for initial install, instead--or vice-versa. (You'd need an adapter or different cord to run to a VGA monitor or TV's VGA port .)

Rarely, two VGA ports might exist on a card, instead. In any case, the port needed likely isn't the one connected (with a ribbon cable) to the PCB on the video card. (Once you get a workable video card driver installed, then you should be able to use either port.) Try all usable ports before finding another possible solution....

Looking for advice on a video card. Would a radeon hd 5750 run on c51gm motherboard


1) You have a PCI Express x16 expansion slot, for a graphics card.

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813135010

(Orange)

A) 1GigaByte of graphics memory which is GDDR3. (It is GDDR3, not DDR3; trust me)
B) 800MegaHertz Core Clock
C) 1600MHz Memory Clock
D) API's - DirectX 11
Open GL 4.1
Shader Model 5.0


2) The motherboard chipset is an Nvidia GeForce 6100 - Northbridge, and an Nvidia nForce 410 - Southbridge.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/GeForce_6_Series#GeForce_6100_and_6150_series_chip_specifications

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Comparison_of_Nvidia_graphics_processing_units#GeForce_6_.286xxx.29_series

Nvidia GeForce 6100/nForce 410, came out 2005.


3) http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Motherboard_diagram.svg

The Northbridge chip of the motherboard chipset, handles the Faster capabilities of a computer.
Processor (CPU), Ram Memory, and HIGH-speed graphics.

AGP technology, and PCI Express technology, ARE HIGH-speed graphics.

Using a PCI slot for a graphics card, or using Integrated Graphics; is NOT high speed graphics.

(As you can see in the Motherboard Diagram, the PCI bus is controlled by the Southbridge chip. The Southbridge chip handles the Slower capabilities of a computer.

Means anything connected to the PCI bus, such as a graphics card in a PCI expansion slot; is handled by the Southbridge chip.
Integrated graphics also )

4) PCI Express came out 2004.
Went from PCI Express 1.0 version to PCI Express 1.1 version.
In 2007 PCI Express went to the 2.0 version. PCI Express 2.0.

Your motherboard, IMHO, uses the PCI Express 1.1 technology.
This is why I recommend a graphics card based on the PCI Express 2.0 technology. (For one)

PCI Express 2.0 is Backward Compatible, with PCI Express 1.1
A little iffy if it's PCI Express 1.0

I have seen a lot of problems crop up with users trying to use a graphics card, based on the PCI Express 2.1 technology; on a motherboard based on the PCI Express 2.1 technology.

That's why I recommended PCI Express 2.0

PCI Express 3.0 is supposed to overcome that, (Use on a mobo with PCI-E 1.1), but I have no real world knowledge, (Hands on), and no input from the 'outside'. (Internet/world)

5) You need at least a 400 Watt power supply. Don't have at least a 400 Watt? Time to move up.

Adding discrete graphics card to p6stp-fl


!O_O!

1) Unplug the computer from power.

2) Press the Power On button in, and hold it in for a count of 10 seconds. Let go. (HAS to be 10. Count)
Do this same procedure TWO more times.
(IF the Power On LED flashes for a second, keep repeating until it doesn't)

What you are doing is clearing CMOS Error Codes, and resetting BIOS Setup parameters back to the factory default settings.

3) FOLLOWING Anti-Static Precautions remove the graphics card.
Plug the monitor back into the Integrated (OnBoard) graphics, of the motherboard. (VGA connector)

4) Plug the computer back into power. WAIT 1 minute, turn the computer on.

5) When Windows has loaded wait a couple of minutes, then take that graphics card's Installation (CD) Disk, and put it in the optical drive.

If the disk doesn't start loading after 10 seconds, go to My Computer, and double-click on the drive letter, next to the optical drive, the Installation Disk is in.

When asked choose all software. Nvidia Control Panel, and drivers.

Your computer will keep on using the Integrated (OnBoard) drivers, for graphics. It will Not use the drivers, and software you are installing now, until the graphics card is physically installed.

Install all software. If you are asked to restart your computer -> NO
Close all windows, go back to your desktop screen.
Turn the computer off normally.
(Start > Turn Off Computer > Turn Off)

6) Unplug from power, follow Anti-Static Precautions.
Unplug the monitor from the motherboard. Physically install the graphics card.
Plug the monitor into the graphics card. Close the computer case.

7) Plug into power. WAIT 1 minute, turn the computer on.
You may have to go into Nvidia Control Panel, and set the correct parameters for your monitor. (Screen Resolution / Color quality )

Clear CMOS Error Codes, and reset BIOS Setup back to factory settings doesn't work?
You get to go back into BIOS Setup, and set the submenu you changed, (Or submenu's), back to the factory standard setting.
(F6?)

You are trying to use the OnBoard graphics drivers for the -> graphics card. This = NO.
You need THE drivers for the graphics card installed F-I-R-S-T.

(OnBoard. ON the motherBOARD.
Used to be used for Integrated Graphics.
Makes it easier to understand if you use OnBoard Graphics )

Why?

When a device, (In this case a graphics adapter card), is installed, Windows 'breaks it's neck' to find suitable, matching drivers.
If THE drivers are not there, Windows will match up one of it's THOUSANDS of generic drivers.

This = No.

You need THE drivers already installed. Windows looks to see what device is installed, then finds THE drivers needed.

Can i install a graphics card in ASUSTeK Computer INC. Goldfish2 (CPU 1) ?


Hi Nishchal,

I have looked here for the specifications on your motherboard:
http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/document?docname=c00300057&lc=en&cc=us&dlc=&product=496921

It seems that motherboard only has PCI slots meaning you are very limited in what you can buy - it will not be possible to purchase a graphics card capable of playing any newer games for this motherboard.

Just to be sure, please check if your motherboard has an AGP (usually brown) expansion port above the three white PCI expansion ports on the motherboard at the bottom left. This connector should be as long, if not longer than the PCI ports - if it is very small, it is not AGP (its an AMR port). If your machine does have an AGP port, you can get graphics cards that will play older games or enable aero in vista/windows 7. Ebay is a good place to look for these, Nvidia 6200 / Ati 9600 pro cards are good mid choices, where as I think the fastest AGP card ever made was an nvidia 7600GT.

Hope that helps!

Want to disable onboard graphics to install and use pci vga card


During the initial boot sequence (as soon as you turn your PC on), try pressing <DEL> button (or F2 or F10 - you will see info on the bottom of the screen stating something like "Press _____ (del, F2, F10) to go to Setup..."

This will take you to BIOS, main setup panel for your PC.
There you can find and option for switching your main GFX card.
Options will be something like: onboard, pci, agp. You should choose
PCI.

Try doing this after you insert your new PCI gfx in your computer.


Good luck,

Everything works, but no display


Try a different stick of RAM. Like a smaller amount. try 512MB and see what happens. if 512 works, try the 1 of the 1GB sticks so you can still have atleast have 1GB.

Reply to my motherboard


It looks like your trying to install a PCI Graphics Adapter. If that is the case, I would try the PCI Graphics Adapter any Slot other than Slot 1 or Slot 2. That is unless, your PCI Graphics Adapter Card is a PCI Express, then that must be installed in Slot 1, if the Board supports it. If the PCI Graphics Adapter is a PCI-I Card then it must be installed in Slot 2.

Check AMD's site, they have or already implemented standards on their support chips. The standard, as I understand it, is Slot 1 - PCI Express, Slot 2 - PCI-I, if you're using those Slot for PCI Graphics Adapter.

It should be possible to use those Slots (1 & 2) for any PCI Cards that is not a PCI Graphics Adapter, be careful, I have not checked that out. Those do not handshake as Video Adapter, so the PCI card should not be thrown or overdriven, the PCI-Express and PCI-I, to my knowledge is only for Grahpics Adapters, should that be different, then Slot 1 for only PCI Express Cards and Slot 2 for only PCI-I Cards.

Me, for now, Slot 1 for Express, Slot 2 for PCI-I, and the rest of the Slot for all else. If your PCI Graphics Adapter is not an Express or PCI-I, install in any Slot other than Slot 1 or Slot 2.
