Hi dineshcs.
When adding a new graphics card (Your's being a PCI-Express), you must change a bios setting under the title " Advanced " section. Open you're M2N-MX manual & turn to page 2-21. You need to change the boot order for you're graphics to list,
[PEG/PCI]. Change Initiate Graphic Mode Select to [Disable].
These changes stop the onboard graphics card from loading & allow the PCI-Express card to load. The issue of possible motherboard overheating can be caused by many things. Here is a list of things to check.
1). Check the CPU heat-sink fan. Make sure the fan blades are
free from dust build up. Check fan speed in bios (Its RPM will be listed). It should be running a min of 2300 RPM.
2). Also in the bios is Hardware monitor. By booting into the bios go to this & watch the temp of CPU & motherboard. If either is getting too hot suggest you add a side case 3" fan to the system to help lower the CPU & motherboard temp.

Good Luck!

Mike

What cheap but good video card should i get to run modern warfare 2 on my dell desktop computer


Hello,

From what I can determine, for you to have the permornace you need for Modern Warfare 2, the following are the recommended computer requirements:

A CPU: 2.4 GHz dual core or better, RAM: 1 GB on XP / 2 GB on Vista and Windows 7 and a
GeForce 9500 GT 1GB memory Graphics board. (this is a PCI Express slot board).

Make sure your Dell has the slot required for the graphics board, if no slot then there is an AGP board, but with 512MB memory that would work good.

Either graphice baord would cost about them same
Recommend, EVGA @ Negeeg.com or Tiger Direct.

Good Luck

Hi!

Try to "clean" your PCI Express PC slot, it may be dusted - just disconnect your graphic card, then blow to PCI Ex slot and insert card back.
Also try to download latest drivers from here and install it after your PCI Ex de-dusted:

I am thinking about buying a 9800gtx+ video card


That board has PCI, PCI Express and PCIx16 interfaces. So if the video card has any of those interfaces, it should work.

Thw difference between agp and pci slot


sir, you cant replace it with PCI E from AGP, unless your motherboard can handle either PCIE or AGP. cause there is a motherboard which is compatible with the two interface video cards slots but in your case i dont think so. Better to check your motherboards manual for this.

thank you for using fixya

Installing NVidia 8500GT XFX 256MB graphics to A8N-VM Motherboard


The chances are that you have an old motherboard which is not compatable with the new graphic card. Or you may be running windows 98 and are downloading the driver for xp or visa versa. The probable solution, will be to sell the new card on ebay and buy the best old card you can off ebay. Or just make do with the card you already had in your computer. If you are determined to have a better graphics card. A motherboard upgrade with better graphic card may be the best answer or buy a better spec pc second hand if you don't have much money. You'll probably waiste a lot of time trying to get the new card to work and it probably never will.
