Hi Wayne, it's rule of thumb to always uninstall the old software from add/remove programs before installing the newer software drivers. The reason for this uninstall is so the two programs do not over-write files with the same name.
The ASUS P4S800-MX motherboard does have an onboard graphics card, (SiS Real256E). If you added another video card into the AGP slot & did not disable the onboard graphics, than you're AGP card will not run correctly. (I'm suprised it even loaded)!
Please read page 2-19 in you're motherboard manual to help fine tune the bios when using an AGP video card. Than go to page 2-21 & than set, Primary VGA bios to; [AGP,VGA Card]. Save & exit. The PC will restart.
Press & hold the power on button on the case. This will power off the system. Unplug the power cord from the power supply. Insert you're AGP card & make sure it is fully seated. Close the case & plug in the power cord. Boot up the system. Uninstall any other software you did install for the AGP card. Retsart the PC after uninstall is complete. Install the latest software you downloaded for the AGP card. Restart after install is complete.
Lastly, run windows update service & choose ustom, not express. Check for hardware & software updates. You're system should function much better & when you check the system properties you will find you have more system memory. This is because the onboard video used you're system memory to run.

Good luck Wayne!

P5PE-VM with Win7 has no display on PCI video cards-EVGA 2600 or EVGA gt 220. Both cards ran fine with Win XP. What do I need to do?


Hello here is the mainboards homepage:

http://www.asus.com/Motherboards/Intel_Socket_775/P5PEVM/#download

Are you running 32 or 64 bit system ???

Make sure the video driver supports windows 7, 32 or 64 bit.

The video card can sure run fine on windows xp but not in windows 7 as it is a totaly different system.

The mainboard has a 1 x AGP 8X slot.

So now you maybe has to find a video card that supports windows 7

Try also to download a manual.

Good luck

I needed latest video card driver


To begin with, you need to know what video card you have. If you have Windows and I assume you do go to Start > Control Panel (switch to classic view) > System click on Device Manager and in the list find 'Display Adapter'. The name of the driver appears. Make a note of it. Go directly to the website of your driver's manufacturer. Follow the instructions to download and install the right driver. Restart your computer to let it take effect.

Warning: this is the manual way to update. If you are not a tech guy, attempting to change video drivers could make your computer inoperable or cause severe problems. As a result, you can rely on a drive detective software to help fix the driver issue automatically & accurately. This way also saves you time & energy.

Update for SiS 2615 Display Adapter to load windows XP pro


The PC Chips MB PCCHIPS SiS746FX M848A V5.0 462 motherboard does not have onboard video, correct? So if you can obtain the make and model of your video card, you can then find the Windows XP drivers online for download. Then you would be able to provide said drivers when the "system asks you to update SiS 2615 Display Adapter driver"

*Another quick fix would be to use a different VGA card, if you have one available?




*Now, I have never been prompted to update display driver before or during a windows installation or update. So that step I would require a little more detail on. I have only been prompted for mass storage drivers (as seen in screenshot).

My computer is being weird


If it's an specific program then uninstall/reinstall.
If it's any program then you may need to do an virus scan and check to see if you have adaquate memory and the processor is not being stressed to max.
Open Task Manager and check Performance for CPU Usage and Memory used.
you may have programs running in the background that may cause your system to crash.

PLEASE VOTE IF THIS IS HELPFUL. GOOD LUCK AND THANK YOU.

I have asustekP4BGL-VM motherboard the on board vga give 4 bit colour in xp


Hi alkdt, if windows does not allow you to increase to more than four bit color the fault lays with the onboard video card & not windows.
There are a few things you can try to improve the display in XP. First thing I would suggest is for you to run windows update service. Once this service is loaded click on the custom button & look to the right side of the page. Your looking for hardware or software updates (For the video). There may be an update for your graphics card. If windows does not list an upgrade for your integrated video you can download the driver software from Asus, click on this link to load; http://support.asus.com/download/download.aspx?modelname=P4BGL-VM&SLanguage=en-us
Uninstall the current video software for your Asus board before installing the new. This Asus board was made in 2003 & the onboard video uses your system memory to function. Suggest you buy a PCI graphics card & install it in to an opened PCI slot. Two reasons for this suggestion. Today’s PCI cards come with their own memory. Two, a PCI card will free up your system memory for windows. Like these PCI card;

Good luck alkdt!

Intel D815EEA - my VGA built-in isnt working


If the previous video drivers were not removed properly—and this generally requires running a “cleaner” utility in addition to uninstalling the drivers—the computer may be unstable with the new drivers installed. Also, some OSes (operating systems), such as Windows XP, automatically try to find and install graphics drivers following the obligatory reboot after a user uninstalls the old video drivers. Games may also close and drop the user back to the Desktop, and the system may spontaneously reboot.


Problems may also occur if the user installed drivers for the wrong graphics chipset, although manufacturers such as Nvidia and ATI provide all-in-one drivers to cover many graphics chipsets in one package.


Visit the Web site of the manufacturer of the graphics chip on your card or motherboard, such as Nvidia, ATI, Intel, or others. In the graphics driver download section, look for an uninstaller or cleaner utility. An example is ATI’s Catalyst Uninstaller, which is typically offered on the same pages as specific driver downloads. Download the uninstaller/cleaner utility and run it, following its instructions. Reboot and then install the latest graphics drivers for your specific card or motherboard.


A free, third-party alternative is Driver Cleaner. This has generally been safe to run as of this writing. Be sure to read all notes and follow all directions as you use Driver Cleaner to remove old driver remnants. Use the software to get rid of any drivers supplied by Windows, too, as these are often the ones WinXP automatically installs at startup before you can install the new drivers from the graphics chipset manufacturer. You probably won’t need Windows’ drivers again, as they’re usually older and slower and don’t have the latest tweaks and fixes.


Make sure you’ve properly identified your graphics chipset. First, check it in Device Manager (right-click My Computer and click Properties, the Hardware tab, Device Manager, and Display Adapters). Corroborate this by opening your computer’s case and checking the brand name and model number of your graphics card (the monitor’s cable connects to it) or the brand and model of your motherboard if the video/graphics chipset is built into it. Look up the model number on the manufacturer’s Web site, and it should tell you which graphics chipset you have.


Note that you can install ATI’s or Nvidia’s drivers on any card using their chipsets (no matter whose brand is on the card). On the other hand, if you have integrated graphics, you need to get drivers from the motherboard’s manufacturer.


If you have recently changed from integrated graphics to an add-in video card, make sure that you have moved the monitor cable to the new device and disabled the motherboard’s onboard graphics in the BIOS (Basic Input/Output System). To do so, click the indicated button to enter Setup during the boot process, usually the DELETE button. Then, look for an option that will let you disable the BIOS’ onboard or integrated video.
