Problems with pci-e video card.

I was using my KN8 with a Geforce 7600GS for more then a year,
some days I turn off the computer, and when come back 2 hours later, tryed to turn it on, and the video card don´t work.
The big problem is, the video card is ok, I tested it on two other machines, and also I tested another video card at the KN8, and it also worked fine.
Any idea in what to do?

Try reinstalling the PCI-E drivers or AGP drivers (if you are using that interface) from your motherboard cd and see if there are any problems with that. Check device manage under system to see if there are any red x or yellow flags next to any hardware devices.

    Sounds like the motherboard. There are some computer stores out there that can test the card bus on the motherboard for you to see if there is any physical damage to it.



    Make sure that all hard drive connections are seated properly on the computer as well as the memory cards and other hardware cards.



    If there not connected properly, it can cause this problem to happen as well.

Can you suggest an agp 8x video card compatible with a7v880 mobo? thanks! my nvidia fx5200 got busted...


Hello.

Since you have a ASUS A7V880 Motherboard, this means you have a VIA chipset, which does not like ATi Video Cards.

You can only go with Nvidia AGP Video Cards.

Current "Available" Models are

Nvidia GeForce FX 5200 , 5500
Nvidia GeForce 6200, 6600 GS
Nvidia GeForce 7300 GS, 7600GS


The Best Graphic Card available from the Nvidia GeForce series is the 7600GS

If you just want another card to replace your old video card, please visit:

Hope that Helps.

Video black with 7600gs card installed


Hi bandit11,

First how did you get a PCI-Express X16 like the 7600 onto a AGP 4X port?? Two different animals. To answer your qustion, no that Card will not work on that Board. You can spend your money if you want to on some of the higher speed video cards but, to be turthful, I wouldn't. The CPU and memory will limit any of the newer cards that will fit that board today. But, if you really want to keep that board, then I might suggest to look for a $40-50 Radeon 9700 pro or 9800 pro. Anything more than that is a waste of your money.

Bottom line a lower end AGP cardwon't give you any more card performance then high end AGP card if you must upgrade, go used and cheap...nothing fancy.

Best of Luck

Video card problem


this is probably a setting in the BIOS-setup you need to change. look within system/miscellaneous configurations for an option that defines which graphics adapter should be used as default. in normal circumstances there should be an auto-detect option...

GA-K8VM800M and GV-N76G256D-RH compatibility


Perhaps your power supply is not powerful enough for the new card.

Video card


actually your computer is working on the onboard video adapter.

1. connect first the monitor to the onboard video card.( do not remove the connected geforce video card.)
2. switch on the computer and press "F2" on new model computer, "Delete" on old model computer.
so that you can enter to bios setup.
3. if bios setup is open; try to find the "AGP bridge configuration"
(some other bios AGP B C is in chipset) by arrow up,down,side left and right) enter.
4. Find " primary graphics adapter"
5. In there, select : If Video card is "pci" connected ; select "pci"
If Video card is "AGP" connected ; select "AGP"
6. press F10 to save and exit the setup.
7. after saving the configuration, disconnect power cord and transfer the monitor to the video card (Gforce). and then connect the ac power cord and then start. or switch on the computer.

Note: be sure to install the drivers of your GFORCE for optimum performance of the card.

hope this help.

Motherboard ABIT KN8


i dont know about the red light, but all main boards these days have a built in protection if the cpu fan quits. check the cpu fan connection, ensure that it and the heat sink are dust free. if still no go. update  your question with exact info..e.g. does absolutely nothing.. how many beeps you hear..how long b 4 it dies.. final note: be careful what you touch.. static can harm more that most think and the oil from touching can retain heat.
