How to switch the comp from reading your AGP slot to PCI slot

Q: How to switch the comp from reading your AGP slot to PCI slot

ok the lady I got this comp from says the comp the video card its reading now is not as good as the one in the PCI slot so Im wondering how do I make it so it reads the PCI slot

The AGP vid card though comes out with a Adaptor to make it so you can plug in moniters

Anyway Should I leave my moniter plug in the AGP slot video card or put it where no video card is but goes right into the computer

and no there is no plug that goes into the PCI slot

I hope this is understanable

thanks

That's known as integrated graphics, now do you have a PCI video card and an APG video card or an Integrated video card and an AGP card?

Also what are they Radeon xxxx? or Nvidia xxxx? we need to know the model numbers to tell you which is the better on to use.

A:can I add a AGP slot or PCI slot to a comp that doesnt have one?

You can't add a slot to a motherboard.

How old is this computer that it doesn't have a PCI slot? Those have been around for quite a while. Are you sure it doesn't have one? Even AGP is not new technology.

EDIT: After seeing your other thread, are you asking if you can purchase an AGP or PCI video card? That's a totally different question, and the answer would be yes depending on which slot your motherboard has. How much it costs depends on what you plan to use the computer for. A simple one is cheap, and high-end gaming cards can get expensive.

A:Question about PCI-e slot below dual slot video card

My opinion ...

Yes, setting up like that will have an impact. The air flow to your GPU will be restricted so it will more than likely run hotter than it did. It may still stay withing recommended specs, but it will run hotter.

The motherboard has onboard sound (Realtek® ALC892 8-Channel High Definition Audio CODEC ), any particular reason why you don't use that? Onboard sound is perfectly good for gaming and the like now, its not like older machines where you needed a dedicated card for decent quality. In my opinion, you only need a dedicated card if you are doing a lot of detailed audio work (mixing, remastering and other specific audio work). This would totally remove the issue.

hi there,
i need to know which know which graphic card will fit for my computer. Ie i want to know which type: DDR ,DDR1 or ddr2 i bought my computer in 2007, but thats not enough to tell.
so please let me know how do i know which pci slot i have?
 

A:which graphic card slot do i require for my PCI slot

The type of memory doesn't matter, its the type of interface the computer supports among a few other things to watch for.

You likely have a PCI-Express slot, as long as it a x16 slot it doesn't really matter if its a version 1.1 or 2.0 slot.

Is this for your Dell or another computer? Whats you budget and what needs do you have for the video card?

Hi NukesGoBoom,

I have seen a similar problem, but it was all USB ports that weren't working.

First, check the BIOS to make sure all USB ports are enabled, which they probably are.

Are all drivers installed and up to date? Do any yellow question marks or exclamation points show up in Device Manager?

A:Soundblaster dont work anymore after switch PCI-E Slot

UPDATE:

I reinstalled all Drivers etc from the Soundblaster Titanium. I can now choose the Card in Players such as Winamp or AIMP3 and enjoy the sound on my 5.1 Headphones. However, using it for any other Systemsound like the Browser with Youtube, i will only hear Bass Sounds in my Headphones. In settings from Creative, where I can choose the Bass Boost (Crossover Frequency), when having Systemsounds like in a Browser, when I have that activated (as I said) i only head Bass sounds. When I disable Bass boost (Crossover Frequency), i hear nothing. But when I click it again, for a millisecond I hear the normal sound again. But only for a millisecond.

Whats that issue ? Just because I switched the PCI-E slots for the card ? Really need help ! Thanks in advance.

A:SDR Ram in DDR Slot

Since you say you forced it into the slot, you might have created small cracks in the mobo which may be the reason for the problem...
Or you might have fried the board as you say.


Either of those will result in a dead board.

But you might be lucky. Try taking out every card, cable & al from the mobo, then reseat the mobo in the case, and try to boot with as few components installed as possible (ie. cpu, vid.card and ram). And try switching the slots the ram is in...

Good luck!

I have an inexpensive motherboard that is about 1.5 years old that the AGP slot has gone bad in. When I say gone bad, it's that the contacts in the slot have widened out and no longer works. I know that this is the problem because if you are lucky enough to actually get it to work, then slightly move the card, it goes dead. My question is if I buy a PCI video card will that work? I have three open PCI slots. This is all due to financial reasons. I can buy another motherboard, but then I'd have to buy another power supply because this one is a 20 pin and almost all of them nowadays are 24 pin. The computer is only used for going online and nothing more. It's my parent's computer. So do you think a PCI video card would work? Thanks in advance...
 

A:AGP Slot Gone Bad

Yep, it will work. The only catch might be you'd have to set your BIOS for a PCI video card rather than AGP, but it should even autodetect. Hopefully you are correct that it is just a widened slot, in my expierence if something on a motherboard dies, other things are going to follow.

Hello RvB Mate it should tell you in the users manual as a general rule and I stand to be corrected it is usually the slot nearest the CPU for stick 1 (slot 1) of 2 sticks and slot 3 for the second stick.

Hi I bought a graphics card that I was pretty sure that is compatible with my pc.
Here is a link for the graphics card :
http://www.amazon.com/EVGA-512-P1-N...2?s=electronics&ie=UTF8&qid=1311051376&sr=1-2

It says it requires a PCI 2.1 Slot and I know that PCI 2.1 slots came out in 1995.. My pc is a 2005, model D300a Insignia. So I'm wondering if it has a PCI 2.1 slot and if it does how do I make my card work?

What I did as my first step was
-I installed it
-Went to BIOS
-Changed the integrated to PCI.

Any suggestions?
 

A:PCI 2.1 Slot

Not exactly sure what slots your motherboard has, but you should be fine as long as it has a PCI 2.0 slot. You may not get the max speed from the card, but it should operate.

If your having issues with the card aside from that, your power supply is most likely to weak to support it or you have an outdated driver. I'd first update the driver (cause that's free) and if it still does not work, I'd suspect the power supply is the problem.

I'm about to buy the ABIT AT7-MAX2 in order to start playing with overclocking world (and probably caused severe dents in my pocket at the same time as things go overtemp ))
The new mobo has an 8x AGP slot. I have a GF4Ti4600. Am I right to assume that the 8x slot won't make an ounce of difference to the overall performance due to the fact the card was designed with 4x in mind?

Does anyone know if ABIT's allow the locking of the PCI/AGP frequencies?

Anyone know the safezone for a XP2000 processor?

Happy new year!

Hi guys,

Could someone tell me what a PCI-e 1x slot is, and what it can be used for? Thanks.

How do I determine what PCI slot I have 2.0 or 2.1? My computer is about 3 years old and is running Windows XP. Its a Dell if that helps.

Thanks in advance...

I suggest you look in the manual. If you don't have one, get one from Dell's web site.

As you can see i just found the speed to be only 2x. I was planning on buying either a Radeon 9200 256mb , MSI GeForce4 MX440 (MS-8860) 128MB or a RADEON 9600SE 128mb . Which is the best deal for my small budget frame from the 3 above? Also if i happend to buy a Radeon 9800pro in the future will the 2x AGP slot be slowing the card down, therefore making it pointless to buy such an expensive card? Thanks to all in advance.
 

A:2x AGP slot

You wouldn't get the full wallop of a top end card so I think you would be wasting your money. Change your motherboard first. I would think if you have only a 2x agp it might be time to just build a new machine. Post the rest of your specs and someone will let you know what time it is.

I have integrated graphics. It's the "choke point" in my system. I am not clear on graphics card upgrades. This is a simple question for most of you guys. Can I go out and buy a new PCI express card and disable my integrated graphics and use this slot for a new graphics card? I am confused....sorry for the newbie question.

P.S. what does GeForce 6150SE nForce 430 mean? Is it the motherboard and integrated graphics? It is listed as "chipset" in the system specs. I thought "chipset" was the motherboard.

A:PCI E X-16 slot help me out please.

Hello again.... (less than 5 mins later...)

Ok so now that your other post has been cleared up, let me get this one for ya.

Yes integrated graphics suck. Go buy a good video card, and put it into the PCIe16 slot, and plug in your monitor. You should be good to go (though read the installation instructions that come with the card) You do not need to disable your integrated graphics, so don't worry about that. Don't worry about asking dumb questions, everyone has them. (That includes all of us "skilled" or whatever rating....)

The GeForce 6150SE nForce 430 describes your integrated graphics. That is equal to a NVidia GeForce 6 series card, which they no longer sell off their website I dont think.

Hope I answered your question.

Hey guys,

I am in the market for a new computer and I found a motherboard that I like. It has an ACR slot. What is that?? I have never heard of that kind of expansion slot.

Thanks Guys

Alan
 

A:ACR Slot

It's another riser for software-driven add-ins like modems or sound. Very similar to AMR or CNR.

The problem with ACR is that it's a VIA proprietary standard. That is, it's VIAs, and you'll never see it on anything but VIA boards, where as Intel has made its CNR standard available to everyone (including VIA).

Because of that, I think that ACR will go the way of Betamax. That is, nowhere. Those slots aren't popular as it is, and when they are used, people will be far more likely to use CNR (because it's an open standard) than ACR.

Reading further about the P4C800-E Deluxe. The chapter that covers the AGP slot it states it has a AGP Pro/ 8X/ 4X (0.8V, 1.5V only).

Can a standard AGP card fit into a AGP Pro slot? The AGP card I am looking at states that it supports AGP 8X standard. What they mean by that "exactly" I am not sure.
 

A:AGP Slot

Yes, it should fit fine. Do you have a link to the card? If so, we'll be able to tell for sure, but an 8x AGP card should work fine on that board.

Hi!

The RAM that I brought was crucial product #CT12864AA53E (1GB 240-PIN DIMM 128Mx64 DDR2PC2-4200 UNBUFFERED) and I'm sure that it matches the 2*1 GB RAM that already came with my computer (I verified the memory specifications with HP's website and other websites) Thanks for any suggestions. I am desprate for that extra 1 GB performance, because I run really memory-eating apps!

A:RAM won't fit into slot?

It is a fairly tight fit. Were you able to lock the end tabs of the RAM slots? Don't take this the wrong way but are you inserting it in the correct orientation? The RAM has a notch that is not in the center so you have to make sure it matches up with the corresponding notch in the DIMM slot.

Hi, I have this laptop/specs

Review Samsung NP355V5C-S05DE Notebook - NotebookCheck.net Reviews

So there's 2 DDR3 slots in the machine, both occupied by 2GB and 4GB

I've seen on the internet you get 8GB ram pieces.

The website says that I can switch the 2gb for a 4gb to have a maximum of 8gb ram on the machine.

But if there's 8GB ram pieces on amazon/internet wherever, can I not replace them both with 2x8GB rams, contradicting the above line and giving a maximum of 16GB ram instead?

I'm new to the whole RAM thing and its my first time installing/changing RAM so before I go off to buy RAM I wanted to know whats up.

No

All memory slots have a maximum size RAM module that they can accommodate, which in this case is 4 GB. The existence of 8 GB RAM modules changes nothing.

A:AGP Slot help

You can web search/download CPU-Z. This small program has a tab that identifies what AGP slot your system has (2x, 4x, 8x) and AGP 2.0 or 3.0 standards supported.

(Edit- direct link for CPU-Z website, just "Download Latest Version" top-left link):
http://www.cpuid.com/cpuz.php

If your system is even semi-modern, you likely have at least an AGP 4x slot, whereas 99% of today's AGP cards will work in either AGP 4x or 8x slots.

More importantly will likely be your power supply. You likely have a very wide upgrade path available to you, only reduced by your budget, but newer 3d cards do draw significantly more power. I'd recommend cracking your case and looking at your power supply for the sticker to see what top wattage it's rated at and if it has info on the voltage rails vs. amperage. It's important what amperage the 12v rail has and top wattage (example: 350W power supply with [email protected]).

Hi. I hope someone can help me.

I bought oblivion and I was going to get a new graphics card because mine can't run it. (Mine is an integrated Intel 86825G). So I took it to the computer guy up the road and he was all ready to put in the new card but when he opened the tower he said that my computer has no AGP slot. He said that the only way I can run oblivion is to replace my motherboard and get one that has an AGP slot - which I can't afford to do. My computer is pretty good (other than this) and it would be a shame to replace it just for this one thing.

Is there anything else I can do? I don't know - maybe there's some kinda adapter or something?

Have an eMachine T2615 MOBO L7VMM2 with onboard video. Have Windows XP SP2. Purchased a game card ATI Radeon X1600 Pro (256 MB).
Installed the drivers but the pc will not pick up same. Went into BIOS and there was no mention of disabling the onboard video, thinking this was the problem.
Went to CPU-Z and under Mainboard the Graphics Interface containing AGP info was greyed out. The fact that the pc came with an onboard video makes me suspect that a driver is needed for AGP slot. Any ideas? Thanks.

The BIOS should have something about setting the video priority. The on-board VGA will be listed as PCI. You should be able to set this to AGP.

I purchased an AGP card for a game. After installing the eMachine T2615 (MOBO L7VMM2) would not pick up same. I was told that eMachines use a proprietory AGI standard.
So my question concerns the physical layout of an AGI stadard. Will an AGP card fit into an AGI slot or is AGI a standard and not a slot? Thanks.

I bought x gb RAM Kingston DDR non ECC etc as I have upgraded to WIN x Here is my Motherboard GIGABYTE - RAM slot seeing RAM not Motherboard - Socket - GA- GCM-S L rev I have RAM slots The first seems to be fine The second slot doesn't seem to work With both cards in only x Gb appears If I plug one card into slot one leave empty the system works If I try a single RAM stick in slot only the system fails Everything is pointing to the nd RAM slot being inactive I RAM slot not seeing RAM dont want to go to the repair shop Any chance of a magic switch or knob that needs turning etc to make both slots active UPDATE Slot doesn't respond to any of the RAM Some good news though The RAM slot not seeing RAM unmarked sticks were always Gb each So looks like slot has always been 'dead' I've never bothered to look Didn't have any reason I got the PC nd hand So is there a way to 'activate' this nd slot Anything to check or is it a lost cause

A:RAM slot not seeing RAM

As far as I know, the RAM slots on a motherboard don't come with an "enable/disable" feature. They either work or they don't. The usual method to see if a RAM slot is working is to take a known working memory module and try it in each slot. Since you've already done that I think it's a pretty good probability the slot isn't working.

Here is a free diagnostic tool that can analyze and benchmark many kinds of hardware, such as CPU performance, hard disk performance, video system information, mainboard / motherboard information, etc. It might possibly be able to verify if that slot is bad. But even if it can't confirm the slot's good/bad status, I still think you've done that. And it may only be a matter of time before the entire motherboard fails.

WOW, I guess I need to learn some more about Video Cards..
I'm in dispute, can an Nvidia board, accept ATI cards as long as its the same slot.
Lets say I have GIGABYTE GA-M57SLI-S4 AM2 NVIDIA nForce 570 SLI
can I add, this GPU VisionTek 900196 Radeon HD 2400PRO 256MB 64-bit GDDR2 PCI Express x16 HDCP Ready Low Profile Video Card

A:PCI slot x16

Nvidia and ATI are just the makers of the GPU chipset. Basically Intel and AMD.

If you have PCIe Slot on your motherboard, you should be able to use whatever card you want. I am running an Nvidia GTS450 on my ATI chipset mainboard.

Hello

I have a quick question regarding being able to insert a PCI-E x16 in a PCI-E x4 slot - is this possible? Would it act like the way USB x2 works in the way of backwards compatibility?

The reason I ask is I want to get another card along with my current one which is PCI-E x16 and I only have a spare PCI-E x4 slot available, this is so I can use x3 monitors for a multi setup.

I was going to buy a new computer for gaming because i have an intergrated graphics card. I was recently looking at my mother board and i think i might have a agp slot but i'm just not 100% sure, could you guys tell me whether i have one or not please! I am attaching a picture of my mother board, i think it's the little brown slot above the three white ones!

Hi guys I recently added a second monitor to my computer Upon the initial boot up my PC would get stuck at the windows logo screen and go nowhere x xtx ATI card ASUS A n SLI Mobo So then I began trouble shooting took off the new monitor reseated the card power cycle check wires a nd pcie card was used in the main pcie slot and still bad but works on secondary it wouldnt even boot up in safe mode when the graphics card was installed in the primary PCIE slot So I took the video card and installed it bad slot? PCIe in the secondary pcie slot and everything works fine as if nothing is wrong for good measure i place the video card back in the primary PCIe slot and the still get the same behavior where it would not boot into windows I am staring to think my motherboard is bad Do you guys bad PCIe slot? agree Do you think there are other things I can do to really pin point it s my motherboard Thanks Neil nbsp

A:bad PCIe slot?

I could be wrong but I seem to remember a manual switch on the motherboard for the second pci-e slot. If not then I believe you are right about the board and incidentally I also believe that baord was mass produced but had a myriad of issues so to get this much use out of it is a miracle.

Hi, this might not be the most common problem
anyways,

Im a professional counter strike player and i have a problem with my computer shuttle. My videocard takes 2 slots, the only ones i have and dont have room for my soundcard, which is utterly important. Half the skills are paying attention to ingame sounds.

Is there anywhere oneslot videocards, i know i saw oneslot AGP back in the day, but cant find any pci-e?! or does there exist a some kind of cable that can be connected to the pci-e and then to my soundcard :S
or would something like this work: http://www.startech.com/item/PEX2PC...-Length-2-PCIe-Single-lane-Expansion-Box.aspx
might it slow down though?

Hi guys (first post !),
I recently bought a Geforce 7300 gt(AGP 4x/8x/PCI Exp) card for my old home rig (my mains in my dorm overseas) and I'm having some problems fitting it in.
My rig's specs are :
Processor: Intel Pentium-4 2.66GHz
Board: Intel D-845 GEBV2 with onboard audio and video
Video: On-board graphics card i.e. Intel Extreme Graphics
RAM: 512 MB DDR Ram
From the manual:
The D845GEBV2 can use 1X / 2X / 4X card(s) operating at 1.5V.

I'm pretty certain the card does operate at 1.5V (its got a port for ext power supply anyway) after checking the design with this site and others (http://www.playtool.com/pages/agpcompat/agp.html)
So have I missed something or are they not compatible??. It may be a problem with the agp latch but I just want to make sure in case I end up frying something Thanks!
 

A:Agp slot problem..

I'm a bit confused...
You started out by saying your vid card is a 4X/8X/PCI-e card, then state that your mobo has integrated graphics. Is the card an AGP or PCI-e card? Does the board actually have an AGP slot? Does the card actually have a dedicated PCI-e slot? If it does have an AGP slot, is it an AGP 3.0 or an AGP 2.0 compliant motherboard?

I have just bought a Packard Bell x4520 uk

http://support.packardbell.com/uk/item/index.php?pn=PT.U3302.013&g=1400

I have tried to install an M-Audio Delta 44 PCI soundcard in the only PCI slot on the motherboard, and found that the slot is just slightly too short for the card connectors.

I can't find specific documentation for the motherboard of this model, and I wonder if there are other types of more recent PCI slots that are just a couple of connectors shorter.

Is there anything I can do about this, or is it time to go and buy a USB soundcard?

Thanks

it syas that it is a PCMCIA Sound Card
Interface 32-bit CardBus Type II
is a dell e1505 able to support this card. i think the dell e1505 has an express card slot.

would the sound card be compatible with the dell e1505?

Hi,

I bought a new asus p5b motherboard a couple of weeks ago and it has been working fine in my new pc. Previously I had one graphics card using a pci-x slot (due to it's size it also covers one of the three pci slots :-( ). Then in the other two slots I had a wireless adapter and a sound card, each worked fine.

Now however i bought a firewire card and attempted to install it in the soundcards place (I can live with onboard sound), however this has caused problems:

1) The firewire is not recognised (although if i try it in the wireless slot, the card does work, indicating that the slot must be faulty - however the sound card works in there)

2) I cannot use sound on my pc now that the soundcard is removed, onboard sound does not seem to work.

Are there any solutions to either of these problems, thanks alot.

Good day all! I have a Dell 8250, P4, 2.6ghz, 768mb RDRAM and 64mb PCI video. Purchased in 2003. I would like to upgrade my video card to an ATI Radeon 9800 256mb so that my son can play COD2 and BF2. Before I take the plunge, I have a few quick questions.

1. There is a slot slightly offset from the modem and video card slots. It appears to be an AGP slot but is green. A couple of friends have brown AGP slots on their motherboards. Do I have AGP?

2. How do I tell what kind of AGP slot I have (2x/4x/8x).

3. If I purchase an 8x, like the Radeon, will it work okay in the 2x/4x AGP slot?

Thanks for the help.
