Hi I have a supermicro x8sti Server Board inside


Basically you have two choices for installation of video card:
1. To purchase small form factor PCIe card suitable for installation on 1U server chasis or
2. Purchase PCI express riser card and to install most full-sized PCI Express cards (Check this link for PCI Riser )

My ATI firepro V7800 makes continuous beeping noise. PC does not boot when I turn it on.....pls help!!!


1) Believe the continuous beeping you hear is a BIOS Beep Code, stating you have a graphics problem. Computer, not video card, is beeping.

2) Do you have the external 6-pin PCI-Express power cable plugged into the graphics card, from the Power Supply?

3) IF, your Power Supply does not have a 6-pin PCI-Express power cable, are you using TWO 4-pin Peripheral power cables, connected to a 6-pin PCI-Express adapter power cable?

To wit;

6-pin PCI-Express power cable example, and also showing a 6-pin PCI-Express adapter power cable on the right,

http://www.playtool.com/pages/psuconnectors/connectors.html#pciexpress

Example of a 4-pin Peripheral power cable,
(Misnomered by many as a 'Molex' power cable. Molex was the first company to make that type of connector. The name stuck, kind of like calling an adjustable open-end wrench a Crescent wrench),

http://www.playtool.com/pages/psuconnectors/connectors.html#peripheral

Note the color code of the wires used in a 4-pin Peripheral power cable, and a 6-pin PCI-Express power cable.

Red = 5 Volt wire
Yellow = 12 Volt wire
(All are DC Voltage)
Black = Ground wire. (ALL Black wires are Ground wires)

The 4-pin Peripheral power cable has ONE Yellow 12 Volt wire.
The 6-pin PCI-Express power cable has TWO Yellow 12 Volt wires.

The most power that a PCI-Express x16 expansion slot can deliver, is 75 Watts.

http://www.playtool.com/pages/psuconnectors/connectors.html#pciexpress

"This cable is used to provide extra 12 volt power to PCI Express expansion cards. PCI Express motherboard slots can provide a maximum of 75 watts."

http://www.playtool.com/pages/psuconnectors/connectors.html#pciexpress8

"The older 6 pin version officially provides a maximum of 75 watts (although unofficially it can usually provide much more)"


The ATI FirePro V7800 graphics card requires 150 Watts by itself.

The PCI-Express x16 expansion slot CANNOT deliver the recommended power (Wattage) needed, therefore an external power cable capable of delivering 75 Watts is needed.

What happens if you just use ONE 4-pin Peripheral power cable, in a 6-pin PCI-Express adapter power cable?

The PCI-Express x16 expansion slot contact pins -> BURN

The gold plated contact pins on the bottom of the graphics card -
BURN

The connection on the graphics card for the 6-pin PCI-Express power cable - BURNS

The contact pins in the 6-pin PCI-Express adapter power cable -
BURN

If it is too bad, and cannot be remedied by cleaning, the motherboard is TOAST, and so is the graphics card.

For additional questions please post in a Comment.

I have Acer m5641 desktop,& I bought Encore Gigabit pci lan card.When I install it to the Pci slot my computer is not working what should I do?? pls. help me!!


Remove the Power Cord, Open the Case and make sure you have the LAN Card pushed down in the pci slot all the way. If it is not in the slot all the way, the computer will have problems.

I'm assuming you replaced your old network card with this Encore card because the old one which is built onto the motherboard stopped working, right? If not, remove the Encore Card and reboot to see if your system boots up. If it does, and when you put the Encore card back in all the way it still does not boot, then maybe you bought a card that is not compatible with your system. Maybe you bought a VGA type card and you might need a AGP type or vice versa.

I have just bought a new computer which has no facility for the parallel port plug-in so my 3D software will not work. MIne is a Designer 1 which takes floppy discs. I have bought an external...


Hi Christine,

If I'm following you correctly, your computer lacks a parallel or "printer" port. This port accepts the male printer plug and would look like this:

steve_con_56.jpg

Most computers have this jack or port, but progress may be pushing them the way of the 5-1/4" floppy disk I suppose - in favor of USB ports instead. If this is correct so far, you have the option of installing an "expansion card" in one of the unused slots inside your computer. Most newer PCs have one or more PCI slots available for expansion card(s). Examples of these cards are network cards, sound cards and you guess it - serial and printer cards. Many of these functions are built into the motherboard nowadays, so there's not too much need for expansion slots - and those supplied seldom are used up.

You can purchase and install a printer card for short money. They look like this:



steve_con_1.jpeg

Some of these cards may be bundled with a 9 pin serial or "aux" port or other function. Serial or AUX port card were popular with external modems and non-usb mice. Both of which have been dying off for some years now. Anyway, it's your choice whether to get just a printer port like the one above or one with additional connections on it as well. They can be purchased for under $10 (more if it has extra functionality). Here's a link to some offered for sale. You'll need to check the available slot type(s) you have in you computer - most are PCI and some offer the older ISA style. Look at the picture below to help identify the slots in your computer:

steve_con_57.jpg
In the picture above, the three long, black slots on the left edge of the board are ISA slots. The 4 shorter purple slots more towards the middle are PCI slots. The light brown slot to the right of the PCI slots is the graphics port. This slot or port as it is called, is neither ISA or PCI and is dedicated for a video card. This port is usually a PCI Express type slot, but some older PCs may have the slower AGP type slot instead. Prior to that was a very long slot - over twice as long as PCI called VESA Local Bus. These are almost never seen anymore. The earliest video slot was an ISA slot - like those on the left of your motherboard. You're going to be checking for an unused ISA or PCI slot in your computer after shutting it off and opening it up. If both are available, you should opt to buy PCI expansion cards instead of ISA expansion cards whenever you need to install a card - like the printer card shown earlier.

That's it. I hope this helps and good luck! Please rate my reply. Thanks.

PCI cards don't function


as been have ssen in picture and specs of your mainboard you have a integratd vga vard and a agp slot. so solution may be this
with old integrated vga open bios program go to disply and choose pci input first. this enable you to boot from pci slot with a new vga save setting switch of computer put on new pci vga and try.
if no option to activate pci init first , sorry you can not boot any vga from pci , but only from agp slot.
