Question about Computers & Internet

Open Question

Hi, My motherboard is MSI 945GCM5-F V2 AND I have bought MSI R5450MD512H vga card in order to upgrade my graphic performance but it wouldn't start and can't be seen under windows. I have set the primary VGA to PCI-E. The card works fine in another computer and another PCI_E VGA card works ok with the motherboard. I have upgaraded BIOS to the latest version aveilable from MSI site (Windows update didn't work (tried wit Windows XP SP2 32bit and Windows 7 64bit)???, but have done it with DOS diskette. I have read somewhere that you have sent someone unofficial version of bios for the same graphic card and that problem was solved that way. Please advise. With best regards, Djordje Dimitrijevic

The bios upgrade procedure stopped at half , leaving the bios corrupted. The computer now cannot do a regular boot procedure, this is the reason why it cannot recognise some device. If you are still able to boot from floppy, you can restart bios upgrade procedure from floppy. Just download floppy version upgrade and re do setup. Even if you do not find latest bios version, just download a floppy upgrade that is working, so that you can restart your machine regularly , and then do the update to latest version.
If you are not able to complete the bios setup, the only way to fix your motherboard will be flashing the CMOS chipset with a chip programmer device that will reinstall bios straight into cmos chipset.
You can have this done at the service point, in this case consider also replacing your motherboard.

SOURCE: Gigabyte GA-MA790FX-DQ6 installation problems

Hi speedfreak44, during the installation of windows one of the drivers did not install correctly & windows registry is messed up.
The blue screen is a typical response from windows. Even though you're windows installed SP2, there are another 89+ updates for SP2. (A reinstall with-out a format is not advised).
Suggest you enter you're bios & disable ACPI. This one I know for sure will show up in windows device manager as a PCI device with no name. Try again to boot windows. If it still fails to enter in standard mode than a complete re-install will be required including a format. Personally I do not use windows XP pro/home w/SP2 CD to perform the format, (After receiving a blue screen).
I have found it is 98% better to use the software tools, downloaded from the Mfg's web site for you're hard drive. Use the bootable software (On a floppy or CD), to format you're hard drive. Most Mfg's hard drive software will allow you to change the cluster size up. Windows standard uses a 4kb cluster size & you loose far more hard drive space. With a 16kb you loose only the file allocation or FAT, which is normal.
Than using the Win XP CD/SP2 install windows, clean.
(No need to format).
When finished installing windows, load the Gigabyte driver CD & install the chipset & other CD drivers. Turn on windows firewall & update windows SP2. (ASAP), (Save SP3 update for later).
It is in the updates of windows to iron out software & hardware driver updates. Do not install you're antivirus software until windows has finished updating its self & you install any hardware updates also through windows update. (Continue to leave the ACPI disabled in bios until updating is complete).
You can enable ACPI, antivirus software & printer software all.

You will find some needed software will install during windows update. Like; Quad Core processor update. With either home edition or pro it is advised to install .Net framework updates 1 at a time & only restart when prompted by windows. Other wise click the refresh button & continue windows updating. (You can save the .Net framework updates for last if you wish). You're video card may need .Net framework 2.0 or better for installation.
I am hell bent on installing windows once & correctly the first time. I understand you want to get this baby up & running but take the time & run the hard drive tools/utilities. (It's worth it)!

Good Luck speedfreak44!
If I can help you further, feel free to post.
Suggestions & comments welcomed.

Please let me know if this got you're system running without the blue screens?
One last item. It's also worth checking the dates on the Gigabyte CD to Gigabyte's web site before installing other drivers. Including the chipset drivers. You want to install the newest drivers the first time around. Here is the link to you're Gigabyte GA-MA790FX-DQ6 motherboard main web site.

It could work.
Its might be a GPU problem.
It can be overcome by doing reflow technique.
You need to do following.
1. Uncover ur PC casing
2. Locate the nVIDIA PCI-E Card.
3. On the card, locate the power supply pin of GPU fan.
4. Remove the pin.
5. Switch on ur PC.
6. Still u may get scrambled display/wavy screen, but wait for 5 minutes.
7. Press reset button on ur PC.
8. Ur PC might work.
9. Switch it off.
10. Connect the power supply pin back as it is.
11. Power on ur PC.
thats all.

Removal of fan power, makes the GPU to get high heat, it a reflow technique.
Remember, not to touch the GPU portion (heat sink), as it may be in higher temperature.
Try this, it works most.

Is the MSI 945GCM5-F 7.1 motherboard on-board graphic card compatible with LG Flatron wide screen? Up until now we had a GF card, but now it's gone, and using only the MSI we don't seem to be...


Hi

You don't say how big the screen is, what connectors it has [VGA (Analogue), DVI (Digital) or HD (High Definition)] or which Operating System you're using.

Right click on open space on your desktop.

Properties > Settings (XP)

or

Personalize > Settings (Vista, Win 7)

Left click & hold on the slider and slide to adjust resolution.

You are given the option to test and accept each setting change you make.

When satisfied, Apply > Yes > Ok. Then restart the computer.

If your screen is large and has Digital and/or HD capability and the above advice does not help you find a resolution setting thast completely satisfies you, you may need to consider a dedicated PCI-Express Graphics Card to upgrade your graphics performance and give you a wider range of resolution options.

Hope this helps.
