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.

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.

The fan is dead, do you know where i can get replacement?

Contact a computer store for a replacement fan or cooler. You may also place a wanted ad on Gumtree or Cragslist, informing others that you are in need of a dead but working cooler/fan for the MSI 7600GS. You could also contact MSI.

Check E-bay, some-times fans are removed from dead cards and sold as refurbished, which will do.

Take care!

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


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 card

Hi ,

Appreciate the direct "Ask me" again.

On your last post, you specified your PC to have AMD Sempron 2400+ 512 Mb DDR2. (). Offhand, I would go for the Nvidia for performance but for durability, the Radeon would be better. Depends on how you want the video card used. Perhaps you may want to consider first is compatibility that is if your motherboard will accept a PCI-E video card. There are some versions that only have provision for an AGP video card.

Hope this be of additional help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

It would be appreciated if you could rate all the solutions that has been provided to you as you see it fit here, here and this one.

Good luck and kind regards. Thank you for using FixYa.

Help driver problems!

Nvidia produces one (large) driver for all cards in a series.

Make sure that the onboard Video Adapter is Disabled first (done in Device Manager).

Then try Updating the Driver for the GeForce card in Device Manager (you don't have to Uninstall it first).

If it still comes up with 512 Mb, call me back.

If it works, rate this fix as FixYa so I know it worked.

Good luck.

GeForce 7600GS AGP 512MB card compatibility

it's hard to know,  it may be best to take your pc into a computer store and get them to test the compatability before you take it out of the store,  that way you can be sure that it works
