Hi,
On your MSI K9VGM-V, you do have a PCI-Express x16 slot, which is used for most video cards now days. You can see the full slot diagram on the picture below.

If you need to use a PCI video card, you can use any of the PCI slots.
If you'd like to use a PCI express card, the top slot on your card is a PCI express slot.

I have an Emachines T6532. The screen keeps "glitching" out on me. Any idea what might be causing this, or how to fix it??


http://i2.photobucket.com/albums/y47/beetle665/IMG_4829.jpg

DUDE! You can't post pictures like THAT!

Put sum clothes on that girl!






-> OH,....I'M JUST KIDDING! <-



1) Check the monitor cable.

If attached to the monitor, use the monitor, and cable on a WORKING computer. Same thing? Need a different monitor.

Use a KNOWN to be working monitor cable, if detachable; on your computer.

No? Monitor cable is good?
Go on.

2) We are dealing with a graphics problem.
Next in line is the graphics chipset.

The eMachines T6532 Desktop PC uses an MSI MS-7207 motherboard. Also known as the MSI K8NGM2-L,

http://www.msi.com/product/mb/K8NGM2-FID--IL--L.html

Clicking on the photo shows a MUCH better view.

You have two white PCI slots at the Bottom, (PCI1 and PCI2), and a white longer PCI Express x16 slot above them.

[The shorter white slot above the long white PCI Express x16 slot, is a PCI Express x1 slot)

Integrated Graphics is also known as OnBoard Graphics.
A term that seldom seems used anymore. Too bad because it explains better.
ON the motherBOARD.

The graphics chipset is part of the motherboard chipset, which is Soldered TO the motherboard.

If the OnBoard Graphics of the motherboard is suspected to be bad, the tech will then use a graphics card; and bypass the Integrated/OnBoard graphics.

You have your choice of using one of the white PCI slots, if available; or the white PCI Express x16 slot.
Posting in case you have a graphics card sitting around.

Anti-Static Procedures are FOLLOWED, with your unplugged from power computer. The graphics card is physically installed.
Monitor attached to graphics card.

When you turn the computer on, the graphics won't be perfect. This is because THE graphics drivers for THAT graphics card; has not been installed yet.

Will sort of look 'Fred Flintstone-sih'
(Color quality will probably be set at 8 bit, instead of 16-bit; and Screen Resolution will be wrong)

That's OK. Right now you are just trying to get graphics.

I'll guide you through installing the drivers.

What is the best video card that my motherboard K9VGM-V can handle?


http://www.msi.com/product/mb/K9VGM-V.html

White PCI-Express x16 slot above the two shorter white PCI slots.
Looking at reviews on the internet, I'm going to say the motherboard came out in 2006.

PCI Express 2.0 technology came out in mid January 2007.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/PCI_Express#PCI_Express_1.0a

Motherboard chipset came out in 2005,

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_VIA_chipsets#AMD_.2F_Intel_processors

[Northbridge - VIA K8M890; Southbridge - VIA VT8237A ]

,leads me to believe it is PCI Express 1.1 technology being used for your motherboard.

However you can use a graphics card based on the PCI Express 2.0 technology. Why?
Because PCI Express 2.0 is Backward Compatible with PCI-Express 1.1 technology.

Will you get the full capability's of a PCI Express graphics card, based on the 2.0 technology?
No.

Will you notice? Doubt it.

What will stop you is the Power Supply. Need at least a 400 Watt PSU.
(Power Supply Unit)

Graphics Card;

Power Supply for a mid-tower to full tower ATX computer case.
Also has the necessary power cables needed,

Does the MSI K8n NEO4 Platinum SLI motherboard support the Geforce GTX 550 Video Card?


The MSI K8N NEO 4 Platinum Edition mobo, has an AGP graphics expansion slot. (Accelerated Graphics Port)

It uses AGP graphics cards that are either 4X, or 8X. (Supports 1.5 Volt AGP graphics cards, hence 8X)

http://www.msi.com/product/mb/K8N-Neo-Platinum.html#/?div=Detail

Click on the Specification tab. Look under the bold - Slots - subheading.

(Overview, { Which is the tab it automatically opens to}, Specification, Download, Support, News and Awards, Where to Buy )

This is Evga's version of the Nvidia GeForce GTX 550,

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814130625

Click on the Details tab. (Overview, Details, Feedback)

Under the bold - Interface - heading, and to the right of the subheading - Interface, we see the interface is - PCI-Express 2.0 x16.

Tells you a lot right off the bat, if you know what you are looking at.

1) The graphics expansion slot you need on your motherboard, is a PCI-Express x16 slot.

You have an AGP graphics expansion slot. (That uses either 4X, or 8X AGP graphics cards)

2) The PCI-Express technology used is PCI-Express 2.0

Therefore the answer is No, Stephen.

[ More info on AGP graphics technology, and PCI-Express technology,

1) AGP:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/AGP

2) PCI-Express:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/PCI_Express

Now if someone asks you, why the GeForce GTX 550 graphics card will not work on your motherboard, you can explain why in detail, instead of just saying some dude/dudette on FixYa, said it will not work.

Are you sure some 'Mom and Pop' computer store will not trade out, a decent AGP graphics card, for the Nvidia GeForce GTX 550 you have?
Always worth a shot. Just MHO.

Does anyone know if this motherboard has an AGP slot for video or is it only PCI MSI G71-MV31009-124 THANKS


Unfortunately, I can't find any specifications for that particular motherboard. However, there's a very easy way to tell if one of the slots is an AGP graphics card port!

Look directly at the motherboard so that the white, horizontal PCI slots are in the bottom left-hand corner. There will likely be 3 or 4 white slots, some of them may be occupied by PCI cards. Just above the top white PCI slot, there will likely be either a brown horizontal slot (that's your AGP connector) or a blank space where one might fit.

If you do not see an offset, horizontal brown expansion connector above the white PCI slots but below the fan assembly, your motherboard does not have an AGP connection and you will need to use PCI for graphics.

Hope this is helpful!

We have an emachine w3400 and need and new video card but don't know if it is PCI standard or PCI express how do i find out?


The eMachines W3400 desktop computer has an MSI MS-7145 motherboard.
(MSI = Micro Star International, Inc)

This is the MSI MS-7145 motherboard,

http://www.e4allupgraders.info/dir1/motherboards/socket754/msi7145.shtml

The MSI MS-7145 motherboard, has one PCI Express x16 expansion slot, which is used for a graphics card.

Viewing the bottom left of the photo, you will see three white PCI slots.

Right above them is a longer white slot.
This is a PCI Express x16, expansion slot.

Scrolling down to the subheading - Expansion Slots,
You will see - One PCI Express 16x slot, listed.

Should you require information in installing a PCI Express graphics card, or information on which PCI Express graphics card may fit your needs, state so in a Comment.

Want to upgrade the video card but dont know where to start. are the three expansion slots at the bottom of the board used to expand drivers like the video?


Hi there.
Seeing as the graphics on that board are integrated Intel Extreme Graphics and the board does not have PCI Express or AGP slots then you can use one of the 3 PCI expansion slots to install a video card.
The largest PCI graphics card I've seen is a 512MB card and that was not cheap as the latest video slots are PCI Express.
It will however free up essential system memory which is always a good thing.

No signal possible compatibility issue


Thats some nice items you have there M8!:) your machine gona rock when you done whit it!:)
And yes, the card is compatible whit your MoBo!
On your mobo you have 7 slots, 2 blue ones, they are PCI Express gen2 x16 slots , 2 white ones (the smal ones), they are 3 PCI Express gen2 x1 slots and 2 white ones (the large ones), they are 2 PCI slot, support 3.3V/ 5V PCI bus Interface.
The card you have you connect in the forst blue one, the second is if you waht to use 2 cards and drive them as crossfire.

So connect the card in the fist blue slot!

Good luck!

BTW, here is the link to MSI for your card

PCI slot no working


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!

Graphics cards


Hi noxiney, you're MSI motherboard does have 1 opened AGP 8x4x slot. You can install & run the ATI Radeon X1650 PRO AGP. You can not run PCI-Express because there are no PCI-E slots on the board. There are PCI (White in color) on the board but the AGP slot is much faster than the PCI (White in color slots). The manual states the AGP card can only support 1.5volt video cards & not 3.3volt AGP cards. (Keep this in mind when looking for an AGP card).
Below is a link to a bunch of AGP 8x4x video cards. One or two include DDR2 memory. Carefull where you buy. Check the warranty. (Longer is better). The first one on the list would be compatible. Its not DDR2 but it does have 512MB of memory.
http://www.google.com/products?hl=en&q=AGP+ATI+Radeon+X1650+PRO&um=1&ie=UTF-8&sa=X&oi=product_result_group&resnum=1&ct=title

This card is 1.5v compatable.
http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/SearchTools/item-details.asp?EdpNo=3101648&CatId=318
& this is compatable.
http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/SearchTools/item-details.asp?EdpNo=1642902&CatId=318
Just remember, if the card can run both 8x & 4x it should support the 1.5volt needed to function on the MB.

Enjoy!
