Question about MSI K9VGM-V Motherboard

1 Answer

PCI slot no working

I had a wireless modem in my PC and everything was working perfect. Since I have roommates I eventually had to reformat my PC due to uncontrolled phenomina. My PC is back up and running as good as new, but the MSI K9VGM does not recognize the wireless modem. I have placed other cards in the slot and still nothing. I put the wireless card in my other PC and it sees it right away. This leaves me to believe there is nothing wrong with my wireless card, but maybe I am missing a driver for the mobo. Last night, due to curiosity and poor mobo layout, I removed my video card so I could access the other PCI slot and it actually recognized the modem! I'm burnt out of ideas and fairly frustrated. I have looked around the net for such drivers with no luck. If anybody could help me address this issue I would appreciate it. MSI support turned out to be a laughable expierience when the guy could not even answer my question.
regards,
Adam

Hi Adam, you did a great job trouble shooting your system & you even answered your own question. If one PCI slot works the other should but since you tested that you're self & the PCI slot failed than the PCI slot is bad. My guess is one or more soldered points under the PCI slot. (Underside of the motherboard) is cracked or broken. It may be possible for you to re-solder the cracked or broken joints. The only way to prove this theory will be to remove the entire motherboard from the case & visually check every single joint. There is no single driver for the PCI slot. The PCI slots are part of the chipset driver which is already installed. There is alway replacing the motherboard.

Great job Adam!

Creative Sound Blaster Audigy PCI not regognized, No IRQ = NA


From the creative site

"Try the card in different slots
  • if you have an AGP card in the PC, try the PCI card in a non adjacent slot
  • assign as many IRQs as possible to PCI/PnP devices in the BIOS (consult your motherboard manual or contact your motherboard manufacturer/PC vendor for instructions)"

Can't find PCI Slot for Video Card


Hi, I believe what you are looking for is the PCI-E slot, which current video cards would fit in. Unfortunately, this board doesn't have one only standard PCI slots which will not accomodate any of the current video cards on the market.

You may be able to find an actual PCI video card on Ebay or through a vendor with used parts but if you are hoping to play current games you are better off investing in a newer PC or Motherboard. The generation this board came from did usually have an AGP slot for video cards but this particular one did not due to it's small design.

Sorry there isn't an easy answer for you on this one.

Pci slots


The drivers are supplied with the modem when you buy it. If you didn't buy the modem new or lost the driver disc, you can usually find drivers online. Try a Google search for "xxxxxx drivers" (replace the xxxxxx with your modem model number) and you should find lots of places to download them. Or provide the model number here and we'll see what we can find.

Soyo dragon dip switch settings

here is the pdf with your user manual from the board.
the pci indeed is the slot for the modem and for the sound card,also.
the pci are slots near the agp slot..shorter than the agp.they are equivalent so you can put the modem and the sound card and to interchange the place if you want.
I think youll find more usefull infos in the manual anyway.
good luck
