Question about MSI 915GLM-V Motherboard

Open Question

Hi there, I have a 915glm-v motherboard. The onboard video died and I purchased a GeForce FX5500 AGP card and placed it in the computer. I made sure it was securely connected. But I can't see anything on the screen when I start the computer up. I know that I'm supposed to disable the onboard video, but it's not working so I can't get into the BIOS. Is there another manual way on the motherboard that I can disable the onboard video so the computer boots up showing on the AGP card?

SOURCE: MSI k8ngm2-h mobo doesn't recognize PCI-E slot anymore!

Just a suggestion for you to try.
This is to check whether your PCI-E card is ok or not.
The BIOS setting option should be on PCI Express.
Take out the power cable from the hard disk - we don't want to mess around with window driver or system that might be the culprit.
Now turn on the computer, if ok, you should see some texts on your screen. This is a confirmation that your PCI-E card is still working. So then for you to work on your windows to solve the problem. Good luck.

For user BIOS21 & julio1963,
How to enable you're (Add-in AGP video card) & disable the onboard, integrated S3 graphics UniChrome 2D/3D PCI graphics card.
Enter you're bios. Open you're user manual to page 3-13. Integrated Peripherals. Go to, Init display first. Set to AGP.
(Not to PCI). That is all you need to change. The MSI bios will than see you're add in AGP card & automatically disable the PCI S3 graphics, (Onboard) card.

If I can help you further, feel free to post here.
Please, each user's vote this issue as a fix, if this helped you to get you're bios to see you're new AGP graphics cards.

SOURCE: Enabling onboard video in ASUS A7V400-MX motherboard

When you mentioned heat problems, my first though was the processor. Is you computer just shutting down and the restart in a little while? Then I would lean towards the CPU.
If it is a problem with you video card your computer might not boot up at all. I like your thinking of an additional fan, I would think more along the lines of cooling the entire case, that way you get the hard drive, memory, video, and the processor. I would look for two 120 mm fans and do a push it in the front and blow it out the back.
Now back to your questions:
1. Any AGP video card will do, they are still around and not hard to get for a replacement. and again refer to my statement above for cooling.
Yes you can also install a video card using a PCI slot. You should select in the BIOS PCI instead of AGP.
The manufacturers of the video cards didn't put a fan on there for years and hey we have summer here too. Now with the bigger vid cards
with a gig of memory on them...I guess they really do need a fan.
I am a bit confused, when you say on board I think of no video card at all, not in an AGP nor PCI slot. They do come that way also- right on board.
And most of the time if you are not a serious gamer they are excellent for everyday use.
Well I hope this does it for you my friend,
good luck, stay cool. Please leave a rating,
thank you kindly

HP pavilion A750w starts up, but doesn't seem to go to POST, or at least there is no video once I turn on the machine. Used original, and newer monitors. Replaced onboard video with EVGA GEFORCE FX5500...

Hi there you need to make sure the monitor is properly connected and make sure you install the drivers for the new video card.If you still have the problem you should open the computer and check the memory by taking it out and put in into another memory slot on the motherboard.If you have more than one memory in the computer please take them out one at a time and restart the computer if that does not work you should replace them you new one that is compatible with your computer.

Geforce fx5500

No, it won't. HP's specifications page for the motherboard show it has a PCI-E slot for a video card, and the FX5500 is an AGP card. The connectors are different and you won't be able to install it. You'll need to shop for a PCI-E video card.

Will it work with Agpx4 motherboard ?


After looking at the motherboard and video card you specified,

The video card requires a AGP 8x slot and the motherboard only supports a AGP 4x.

Nvida geforce fx5500 256 agp compatible with intel d865gbf ?

Yes, they should be compatible. The Intel d865gbf has an AGP port that supports AGP 4x/8x, and so does the FX5500. You should be fine.

Nvidia GeForce FX 5500 / 256MB... Problem

Hi jhacy, I went over all you're posted questions conserning this issue with the FX5500 video card. Please include the manufacture name of you're motherboard & its model number. It is possible the video card is bad (Even if it's new). There are settings in the motherboard bios that me need to be shut off if the motherboard has an integreated video card onboard. It's possible that the AGP slot on you're board is dirty & needs to be cleaned. Please list the name or name's of the games you have tried to run but freeze you're computer or crash you're system.
I will automatically recieve an email from fixya when you post the information I have asked for above. Untill than, take care!

Geforce fx5500

Please remove the geforce fx5500 video card. Blow out the AGP slot with some canned air. Re-seat the video card & make sure you install it with even pressure (front to back) with slight rocking motion untill the card is completly seated. Try running the system again. ( I'm thinking the card was not completly seated).

If your system freezes again re-set your cmos / bios. In your user manual pg. 2.
Boot to the bios & re-setup all your settings. Save & exit.
If your PC still freezes, try another AGP card because the 5500 seem to be defective.

So hate giving out bad news........

GeForce FX 5500-picture flickers

assuming you have set your agp slot in the cmos settings to the primary graphics controller and already had the agp graphics slot driver installed for the motherboard, try using a driver from the nvidia web site if you are having trouble with the driver that came on the cd. Use the VGA onboard graphics if you have any or fit your old card and click on the link below for XP Drivers If you still have problems then you will have to try an ATI graphics card as it just may not be compatable with your make of motherboard
