    Got it fixed! Made a classic mistake.I was missing a driver that for some reason was not included in the driver package on the disk for the card.It's a Radeon x800xl. Needed to download the VIVO driver seperately from ATI.All good now just a little annoyed......ok....I'm over it now.But thanks FixYa!

If you do see the BIOS post but the screen turns black when your OS is loading, then the AGP-card should be OK. HOWEVER, you do need to uninstall your MB-video drivers before installing a new GPU.

Is it possible to install more than 2gigs of sdram with a 64 bit os like win 7 can I upgrade if I can find 2x2gig modules of ddr sdram or possibly need to upgrade the cpu also.


According to this spec. sheet from a company that sales your stated mother board (Asus K8V-MX) the maximum supported RAM is only 2 gb. If this is not the model of your board you should clarify that. For installing windows 7 AMD64 you need a 64 bit processor, the ones compatible with your board are the Athlon 64 line. You should consult the documentation that was included with your product since it is the best source of information about it.

PLEASE SUGGEST ME A SUITABLE GRAPHIC CARD FOR MY K8V-MX MOTHER BOARD ALSO THE PROCESSOR I WANT TO UPGRADE FROM AMD SEMPRON TO AMD ATHLON


Unfortunately you cannot upgrade the processor with a new one, the socket 754 is obsolete, retired 4 years ago. You might find some second hand Athlons that will fit it (fastest is 3700+) on auction sites.
That board uses AGP 8x video interface so the best one for it would be something like

Display driver motherboard model is k8v-mx i have vista ultimate and i formatted my system i lost the drivers cd of asus k8v-mx.. i couldnt get the good picture of movies


Here is the chipset driver :
Chipset (vista 32 & 64 bits)

For your graphic drivers i would think that vista has them already but VIA the chipset manufacturer have not made the graphic drivers for Vista.

You can check it out here if you click vista there is no K8M800 driver, if you click XP its there.
VIA driver download link

Also your integrated graphic is really not a very fast card so that could be the issue when you are playing a movie.
That motherboard has an AGP graphic slot so you can always get an upgrade.

GRAPHICS CARD


That motherboard and videa card connect using the AGP standard so you are quite limited to what video cards you can get without upgrading the entire system. Also, since your system is that old getting a modern graphics card will not help much as the processor (CPU) will limit it greatly.

nVidia has not released an AGP card in a few generations but they did have some back with the 7600 AGP. ATI released an AGP version of it's last generation of cards with the HD3850.

I personally think you are wasting your money and should consider upgrading your entire system if you are planning an playing any games. I would suggest getting the cheapest AGP video card you can find say a GeForce 6200 or Radeon X1550. Don't spend more than $50 or $60.

Remember that it must be AGP to fit on your motherboard. Another thing to consider is that any AGP video card you buy for you current system will not work in any new computer.
