Question about EliteGroup Computers & Internet

2 Answers

Bios Setting I have the elitegroup motherboard p4mpro800-m bios version AMI 2.56 512 nvidia 7600 graphics card apg 8x, 1.5gig ddr 400mhz memory, 3.0gig duo processor and vista basic sp1. Once in a while my pc crashes and at first i thought it was hardware but now i believe is the bios setting. It is an out of date bios from 1995-2005. so the auto settings require some manual setting change to optimize its perormance.the games play great and do not lag or crash. But i do notice that when installing new software such as a game, it loads slowly and slugish and creates error.it will give me a retry to install fille for it to load. after 1 or 2 errors the game completes install succesfully. Ready to play. usually after an install it will crash. only once in a while it crashes when closing an aplication like a web browser. never crashed after closing a game.could you give me some input what to set my bios for my video card and memory ect....

    Yes i checked The hard drive.Originally i had 250 gig EDIE hard drive. I thought my hard drive was bad. So i replaced it with 500 gig sata hard drive,since my board is set up with SATA. But here is the thing, Before i installed windows SP1 update I did increase the ddr ram voltage. It made a difference. Loading software such as games installed great with speed and no error. But since Vista Basic has tons of issues, I installed the Vista SP1 which fixed a lot of performance errors.And it did. Once in a while i will get the memory management error or some other blue screen when closing an application, but not as often as i did before. So any way. I triyed boosting the voltage on my memory assuming that lack of voltage could be the issue as it made a difference before, but this time as a result of the sp1 update it had a reverse effect.I Lost performance increasing the voltage. So i set memory voltage back to auto setting where it worked the best. As a result of Windows Basic I have replaced Video card,DDr memory, harddrive,and even power supply. But having done this the last thing I could think of is that the bios settings could be the issue. It is not uncommon for bios to be set on auto configurationg and create problems and yet correctible with a few manual setting changes. Which leaves me at this point. What manual changes can I make which will allow improvement and possibly correct issue if that? I only know how to make basic changes in the bios and do not know how to make more advance manual changes in the bios. What do I change and what do i set it at?

8800gt black screen


Hi Juan016, you have done everything right. I'd say the 8800GT is bad & return it for a refund. Run the 8600GT & the NVIDIA 6100 at the same time. If you check the middle of page 9 in your manual. NOTE: It states; if a PCI-E is inserted the bios will automatically run the PCI-E card. (No need to make a bios setting change).
It also says if you change the setting in the bios to, OnChip and PCIe VGA, the motherboard should run both. Depending what amount of memory you set the NVIDIA to run with. Once in windows check the amount of total memory the NVIDIA or 8600GT reports.
Example: You set the NVIDIA to use 64MB & the 8600GT has 512MB than the NVIDIA or the 8600GT should show 576MB. Its not that uncommon one buys a bad video card.
Reading the manual & windows not seeing the 8800GT tells me the bios did not see the 8800GT card. The card is bad. You’re doing just fine.

Nvidia Geforce FX5200 128mb DDR AGP 8x


Hi, since you mentioned you installed an MSI card & it worked well. I can assume you changed the bios & to boot to the AGP rather than the Integrated 3D video. This is good. Notice the message you got from Nvivia. It could not locate any compatible drivers. This can indacates 1 of 4 reasons.
1. The 5200 was not completely incerted into the AGP slot.
2. The AGP slot is dirty & needs cleaned.
3. Nvidia software was installed but previouse graphics software was not removed (un-installed) before the installation of the nvidia software.
4.The card is bad.
Suggest you download the latest driver software from Nvidia.

4 x 1GB DDR400 installed; only 3GB recognized by MOBO


If you installed total 4GB memory, the system will detect less than 4GB of total memory because of address space allocation for other critical functions, such as: - System BIOS (including motherboard, add-on cards, etc..) - Motherboards resources - Memory mapped I/O - configuration for AGP/PCI-Ex/PCI - Other memory allocations for PCI devices Different onboard devices and different add-on cards (devices) will result of different total memory size. e.g. more PCI cards installed will require more memory resources, resulting of less memory free for other uses. On a SLI system, since PCI-Ex graphic cards will occupy around 256MB, another 256MB will be occupied after you install a 2nd PCI-Ex graphic card. Hence, 2.75GB memory left only if two SLI cards installed on A8N-SLI Premium while 3.0GB memory left with one graphic card without other add-on devices. This limitation applies to most chipsets & Windows XP 32-bit version operating system. If you install Windows XP 32-bit version operating system, we recommend that you install less than 3GB of total memory. If more than 3GB memory is required for your system, then below two conditions must be met: 1. The memory controller which supports memory swap functionality is used. The latest chipsets like Intel 975X, 955X, Nvidia NF4 SLI Intel Edition, Nvidia NF4 SLI X16, and AMD K8 CPU architecture can support the memory swap function. 2. Windows XP Pro X64 Ed. (64-bit) or other OS which can address more than 4GB memory.
