Question about PNY Quadro FX 1000 (128 MB) Graphic Card

3 Answers

128MB PNY Quadro FX1000 AGP8X

I am running a FX1000 in a old KT3 MS-6380E ATX motherboard. The AGP slots on the motherboard accepts 1X/2X/4X. I was told that the 8x to 4x rate was backward compatible.... I have been getting error signatures from the generic host process for win 32 service. Error signature is appname: svchost.exe and modname: msvcrt.dll Sometimes the system shuts down completely without notice when view portals on the web. Trouble shooting efforts: I have updated all MS XP service patch and upated all PNY drivers...check for virus just in case. When I change out video cards the problem disappears. Any suggests to solve this hardware/software issue? I was considering upgrading the bios with the latest rev. before RMA the video card?

Hi, I have had similar problems myself, the tests I carried out on the craphics card showed faulty capacitors. Regretable but that meant a new card. The system will not run without graphics and that is why you get shutdown, if this is a new card return it to place of purchase and get a replacement. Goodluck, regards mistyman

I have a standard hp desktop which world of warcraft can no longer run on it. ( inadequate memory per the patch update from WOW) I am going to purchase a used pavilion 523 desktp 80gb 512mb but was told...


System specifications for a Pavilion 523n desktop computer are;

1) Processor: AMD Athlon XP 2200+
1.8GigaHertz maximum operating frequency rate.
(1.8GHz)
266MegaHertz Front Side Bus
(266MHz FSB)

WoW minimum system requirements:
Processor,
Intel Pentium 4 at 1.3GHz, or AMD Athlon 1500+, at least.

Good to go.

2) Ram Memory:
512MB's of DDR Sdram ram memory.

WoW minimum system requirements:
512MB

Barely good to go IMHO.
You need 1GB, and 2GB will make it right.
The max is 2GB for the computer.

Graphics/Video Card:
WoW minimum system requirements indicate it doesn't take poddy for a graphics card to run it.
Maybe more for the Wrath of the Lich King, of course.

http://www.worldofwarcraft.com/info/faq/technology.html

The motherboard used is made by FIC.
First International Computer { Inc }
The Model Number is AM35
FIC AM35

The graphics (Video) expansion slot on the 523n's motherboard, is an AGP expansion slot.

http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/document?docname=bph07899&tmp_task=prodinfoCategory&lc=en&dlc=en&cc=us&site=null&lang=en&product=90387&key=null

It is an AGP 2X/4X slot.
Use a graphics card that is 4X or is 4X/8X compatible.

Examples,

4X http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/SearchTools/item-details.asp?EdpNo=2974653&CatId=879

4X/8X

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814102814


The difference is the technology that has evolved for the Accelerated Graphics Port through the years.
First there was 1X, then 2X, then 4X, finally 8X.
Graphics technology has moved on to the PCI Express expansion slot now.

The different AGP expansion slots are keyed differently from each other, for one.
For two they use different voltages.

An AGP 4X slot uses 1.5 Volts, whereas an AGP 8X slot uses .08 Volts.
A graphics (Video) card that is 4X/8X, will adjust when used in a AGP 4X slot.

(P.S., that Pavilion 523n uses a 200 Watt Power Supply. At least that's what the Maximum Wattage rating was, from the power supply manufacturer who sold it to HP.

Actual is more like 60 percent of what is stated.
120 Watts.
You really should go to 300 Watts, or 400 Watts.

(A computer ONLY uses the power it needs, and NO more.
Won't hurt the computer.
Also won't kill your electric bill when you're not gaming.
Gaming? Eh!)

It's an ATX (Form factor) power supply, but the case is shallow.
The ATX form factor relating to a Power Supply denotes the size, and shape of the power supply's case.
6 inches Long, 5.5 inches Wide, and 3-1/2 inches tall for ATX.

The one in the Pavilion 523n is 6 inches Wide, and 3-1/2 inches Tall, but it is only 4 inches Long.

Compatability


You have an AGP expansion slot for a graphics card.
(Accelerated Graphics Port)
It uses either 1x, 2X, or 4X graphics cards. Since the only AGP graphics cards out there are 4X or 8X, the 1X, and 2X are moot points. (They were also Junk anyway!)

Your AGP graphics slot only supports AGP graphics cards that are 1.5 volts. There are AGP graphics cards out there, that are Universal. Universal in that they will run as AGP 8X, (.8 volts), or AGP 4X, (1.5 volts)

This is an example:
http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/SearchTools/item-details.asp?EdpNo=4103516&CatId=318

Don't expect to play the high end new intense games with this. I'm afraid you'll have to update your motherboard, processor, ram memory, and a better graphics card to do that.

(Example? XFX Nvidia nForce 680i LT SLI motherboard, Intel Core2 Duo E8200 cpu, Corsair XMS2 PC6400 ram memory, 1GB x2 of them, (DDR2 at 800MHz), and XFX Geforce 9800GTX+, vid card. (Plus OCZ SteathXStream 600W power supply)
This won't break the bank, and will slam some games to the wall!)

MSI motherboard model 6734 AGP interface


Looks like your motherboard is a MSI KM4AM-L detailed here:

http://www.msicomputer.co.uk/index.php?func=proddesc&prod_no=572&maincat_no=1

If so, then it has an AGP slot which will run at 4x and 8x.

Remember to check the BIOS settings after you install it to make sure it is set to 8x, if that is what your card will take.

AGP card to replace inboard graphics card


Yes, your GeForce is compatible with the BRIOs AGP 2X port. And there is no problem in using an 8X board in a 4X or 2X AGP slotted motherboard... it would only be a problem if you have a 1X AGP port which is rather old (fisrt agp ports on the market).

AGP 2X or 4X


if the specs say 4 then it should be 4, however you can plug an 8x in there and it will work, (as they are backward compatible)

the only thing you have to concern yourself with is the slot bars in the slot, and that they match any slots on the card you are going to insert..

If you look in your AGP slot there may be a partition in the slot...
on most newer slots there is no partition in the slot (denotes voltage) If you look on the VGA cards there is most likely TWO slots, which means that the card will fit into ANY AGP slot.. if there is only ONE slot on the Graphics card it is Voltage dependant and must match the partition on the slot (unless there isn't one)

I hope that helps

VIDEO CARD COMPATIBILITY


All AGP based cards are backwards compatible, so an 8x card should operate at 4x 2x and 1x

however what is important is the voltage of your slot, you can tell by looking at the slot itself,  the AGP slot may have a partition either 1/3 or 2/3rds down the slot, or may have no partition at all,

this slot partition is to prevent you from inserting a card of the wrong voltage.

If there is no partition in the AGP slot then the slot has a switchable voltage, and will automatically switch to the appropriate voltage, (on request from the graphics card AUTOMATIC)

 

so all you need to check is that the graphics card you buy has slots on the AGP interface that accomodate those on your board

 

according to the manual

This board has a 4x AGP slot
