Question about ASUS P4S800-MX Motherboard
When i put a graphics card in, the system boots me out of what i'm doing, tells me there's an error then reboots the system, when i take the card out it works fine.I've tried 2 different cards with same result,
any idea's thanks wayne
Please shut down you're PC. Unplug the power cord from the PC. Remove the video card you have installed.
Once removed plug the power cord back in & start the PC. Press the delete key on the keyboard every 2 seconds untill the bios main menu loads. How to move around in the bios is shown at the bottom of each menu screen.
The Asus P4S800-MX motherboard has an onboard video card built into the motherboard. Before you can add a video card you must make a change in the bios. Go to Advanced menu.
Page 2-21 in you're manual. Change primary VGA bios to [AGP VGA Card].
Save & exit the bios. The PC will begin to restart. Press & hold the power button on you're PC until the PC shuts off. Unplug the power cord again, open the case & firmly & evenly insert you're AGP graphics card. Connect any extra power to the graphics card if required. Re-check all connections & cables before closing the case. Turn on the PC. Wait for windows to finish loading before installing you're video card software.
That's it. You're card should now function. Good idea to update windows!

Tips for a great answer:

Test all leads that attach to your hard drive including electrical extensions,IDE,SATA
the leads from your ((motherboard to your hard drive)) make sure they have secure dust free connections and are not faulty or just replace them they might be faulty
if its a 40 pin flat ribbon type it will be the first to fail
make sure all leads that are attached to your drives dvd\cd 3 1/2 inch floppy have secure connections and are not faulty even the electical extensions
even something as small as an electrical fan and its lead can cause you problems
computers need all electrical power and data to continue through every working device and to have an end so any faulty leads will end up with a computer error
make sure your graphics card is securely seated with no dust built up or in the socket
if you remove your graphics check the socket to make sure its dust free
restart your computer then reinstall it this should activate found new hardware wizard
hope this helps
