PCI Slot/Video Card Placement

Q: PCI Slot/Video Card Placement

Appreciate some assistance.

Some pc builders recommend the video card(not AGP) be placed on the PCI slot nearest to the power supply. Anyone know the rationale for this?

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

A: PCI Slot/Video Card Placement

That seems to be the most popular slot for the highest priority devices during "bus arbitration". Since video or graphics require the most from system resources it's best to give them the highest priority when they are negotiating for control of the PCI bus. But, the specification doesn't require that, so a designer could assign any PCI slot to have the highest priority if he/she wanted to.

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.

two identical kingston 512mb pc3200 ddr ram sticks. have 4 ram slots on motherboard. does it matter what order or sequence the sticks are put in?
 

A:Ram slot placement

I don't think so...unless you're running DUAL Channel on your board, in which case your manual will tell you exactly which ones.

Not all Motherboards have DUAL Channel, though, so it might not matter.

I have been building computers for years and never found a reason for the placement of the memory slots on a motherboard. If you look at a board that uses an Intel CPU, the slots used are1-3 and/or 2-4. If you look at a board that uses an AMD CPU however, the slots used are 1-2 and/or 3-4. Does anybody know why this is? No, I'm not trying to make a better motherboard, I'm just curious enough to finally ask.

Thanks for any info anyone can give.
 

A:Memory slot placement

'If you look at a board that uses an AMD CPU however, the slots used are 1-2 and/or 3-4.'

refer to the MSI K9N - which see;

http://www.bosamar.com/K9N/review.html

Dual channel with slots 1/3 or 2/4.

Assuming that you installed 2 Gb in 4 modules of dual channel ram and it is used from byte 0 to 2047 linearly, then assuming that the average 2 Gb ram install running XP uses about 50% of the Ram running avg8 (as example), you would get heating in ram modules 1 and 3 and none to speak of in 2 and 4.

Thus, heat separated components and better cooling.

My opinion.

It can only be one of the two enabled at a time. For most systems, as soon as you put the pci-card in the slot, it disables the on board video.

A:Video card and Video card slot Question

Hello and welcome to Techspot.

Agp1x/2x are 3.3 volts, whereas Agp4x/8x are 1.5 volts.

You should check carefully that whatever card you get is compatible with you 2x Agp slot.

Up until about a week ago i was running 1 8800 GTS, i recently aquired a gtx 260, so i figured i'd have the gtx 260 as my main card and i'd use the 8800 GTS in the second PCI-e slot to be used a phsx card. The problem is when the gtx 260 is in the first pci-express slot (top slot) and the 8800 GTS is in the second (bottom slot) the 8800 is not detected. However if the positions are reversed both cards are detected. Anyone have any solutions as to why this is happening?

My current card is in a blue one. 90% of the slots are blue so the black one leads me to believe it would be faster.

Recently my computer monitor quit displaying my video feed. I first figured the card may have come loose as I never actually screwed it down. So I checked connections but the card fit and didn't seem to be obstructed. Next I checked the card in another computer, it worked. Then I checked the monitor on another computer, it worked. I checked the ram, seemed just fine. There are no beeps and everything seems to turn on without fail on start-up. I get absolutely no signal from the monitor though which leads me to believe that there may be no connection between the video card and motherboard. All help is appreciated, thanks.

Also, video card is AGP if that helps. Its old stuff I know. haha

I do believe those are specific to that make and model card and not generic or interchangeable. At best all you will find on line are blanks to fill empty slots. If you are handy with a drill and a file you could make one from a blank. You might be able to get one from the original manufacturer, but the cost may not be worth it, even if you can get it.

A:Video Card not recognized in PCI-Express x16 - Slot Security

Hi: If your onboard video adapter doesn't work, and resetting the CMOS doesn't work, you can try putting the PCI express x16 video card you have now into the white PCIe x4 slot (the white video card slot next to the black PCIe x16 slot), and see if you can get into the BIOS to change the PCI x 16 setting.  It might work in the x4 slot. If that doesn't work either, then you will have to install a PCI video card (one that goes into one of the white PCI slots) and use that to get into the BIOS so you can change the settings to enable the PCIe x16 slot. So, see if you can find a cheap, used, PCI video card on eBay, and that should allow you to have video again. You also need to make sure you have removed all connections from the PC when you reset the CMOS (all cables, power cord, mouse, monitor, etc).

Hello,

The card only works in the bottom pci express slot though, when i try to plug into the top the monitor light keeps blinking like nothings going through.

(also the top slot is blue, bottom is black, if that makes a difference) I left the default set at single card mode on the motherboard. Also being in that slot is the card running at full capacity? 16x?

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?

I have a HTPC case here, I purchased it a few years ago, they were going fairly cheap on a well known pc supplier website.

I was trying to place the dvd drive in the slot so it was pretty secure and aligned up well for the button on the front bezel.

has anyone seen this type of fitting before?

I have tried putting 4 screws each side of the DVD drive too it sits in there just not tight enough, if you hit the eject button a few times it would move about a bit.

any suggestions?

I am planning to upgrade my video card. I saw this one from Nvidia. Geforce GTS 450. I checked the specs and i saw the "bus" and it says PCI-E 2.0 x 16. My motherboard(Asus P5G41T-MLX3) has PCIe x16. I also have researched that the PCIE is backward compatible meaning the GTS 450 is compatible with my mobo. Now, my question is, will my mobo which has pcie 1.1 only be a bottleneck for GTS 450? if so, what video will you recommend so i can play new games like need for speed shift 2 unleashed?

Hey tidri. 2 things come to mind if it previously worked. One is a reinstall of all the drivers for the mobo, and the other is a full AV/Malware/Rootkit scan. If everything checks out, a full format and an OS reinstall would be my third move.

Hi. I have recently aquired a very old computer (8-9 years old). I am looking at replacing the old agp graphics card because it is not working properly and then sell the computer for quite a low price. Any way.

I have looked in the case and took the card out and I belive that the graphics card slot is agp 2x. The card has two slots in it leading me to belive that it is a universal 1.5v 3.3v card. I am just wondering what cards my computer would accept and whether a 4x card would work ok in a 2x card slot.

Any help apreciated.

Hello all,

I know this maybe a stupid question, but there might be a way that someone might just be able to help me, I hope :/

Anyways, I jsut recently bought a scsi cd burner with cable and scsi from a friend and went to install the card on my new computer only to realise that my motherboard does not have an ISA slot, which is what the scsi card requires

My motherboard is an Asus Socket A A7V-E board with 3 PCI slots free. Im just wondering if there is some way around this problem other than buying a pci card.

Maybe is there a ISA to PCI slot convertor or something out there?

Any help is greatly Aprreciated!

Thanks in advance, Lee.

I have an EMachine mn 2824 with a SD card slot on the front of the case. Today I bought a Canon PowerShot A400 camera. When I plug the card into the slot nothing happens. It works fine through the camera with a USB connection. What am I overlooking?
 

A:SD card slot

Is a light coming on when you put the card in? If not, the reader may not be connected, or it may have failed. Make sure you are inserting the card into the correct slot and make sure it is facing the correct direction. Usually the label is up. If the light does not come on you may open the case and see if the reader is connected to the motherboard.

Nothing is neccessarily going to happen when you insert the card - you have to go to My Computer, then find the SD drive (it's going to be E:\ or F:\ or something similar) and view its contents.

A:agp slot or card?

Check the capacitors on the motherboard. Around that era of ePox motherboards, there was a big capacitor scandal overseas, and many motherboard manufacturers mistakenly used inferior capacitors, which were prone to failure. I had to replace the caps on my 8rda+ and a few others as well. They're the little 'towers' on the motherboard, and if the tops of them are bulging, then they're no good. Here's a good picture to show the difference. Check all the capacitors on the board, they're probably scattered about in different places.

Other than that, if you really think it's the slot, then there's no real way to fix it, unless you can see a faulty connection somewhere. Socket A motherboards should be pretty cheap by now, or you might want to consider upgrading the whole thing.

The case looks ok, the psu is enough though some would say to go with a much stonger one.

Dual slot card means, that you can't use the slot below the 16x slot that you put the card in. I would say yes it fits, though you must do some calculations about the case to make sure that you have enough space.

I recently bought an AGP 8x nVidia 7600gt. However, it doesn't fit into my AGP slot. It is loose and I am scared of putting too much force on it that it will dmaage it.

I'm also not aware of what that tag on the end does?

The smaller of the two slots is facing the front of the computer. I'm also thinking that it isn't aligned properly.

Any help?
 

A:AGP card doesn't fit into slot

Sometimes, certain cards just don't fit on certain boards. I've had to return a couple because they hit against something. A couple other times, I managed to make them fit by shaving off an edge, but this is risky work and no circuit traces can get damaged in the process.

Not a compatibility question, I'm fairly certain that wouldn't be an issue. The question is about overall performance gain. Looking at a Radeon R9 270, currently have a 5670. Here's a benchmark comparison from hwcompare.com - now I'm not a heavy gamer but I am running a mod on a particular favorite that could use a boost. Thing is, the m/b (being 2.0) can't take full advantage of the card otherwise it might be something of a no brainer. Card has excellent reviews and happens to be on sale.
So there's got to be some people here that have been in a similar situation, wondering spend the coin or not. Lets say the $ isn't an issue, just wondering about what to expect in actual gain.
Thanx.

A:PCI Express 3.0 card in 2.0 slot

Using a PCI-e 3.0 card in a PCI-e 2.0 slot will give less performance but not as much as one would think—maybe no more than 10% less—over what it would have done in a PCI-e slot. However, the newer PCI-e 3.0 card very well may give far better performance than an older PCI-e 2.0 card, even when running on only PCI-2.0.

I have a FujiFilm XD-Picture card, and I noticed for a while when I go to put my card into the card slots in the tower it would pop up a notice such as:

I guess what I am wondering is what is causing this message to come up? I always just exit it, and access the card a different way because when I exit the dialogue above another box pops up such as:

I guess my question is, what exactly does the Scan and fix mean on the first dialogue that pops up? Should this be done and does it have to do with the XD card itself, or the slot that I put it in?
 

A:XD card or the XD slot in tower?

All this message means is that the card was pulled from the PC or the camera at some point before a file operation was complete. It would be harmless and helpful to allow windows to 'scan and fix' on occasion.

Something else that would fix it would be to allow the camera to format the card the next time the card is empty.

Hey there! This is my first post here, so bear with me   We recently swapped out our EliteBook 8470p and 2170p's that had it's sim card slot behind the battery for use with the mobile broadband module (at least if i remember correctly for the 2170p).But now, on the 820 and 840 G1's I'm unable to find this. Shouldn't it be somewhere? I mean, how else are my customers going to use the mobile broadband module?  Thank you.

A:Sim card slot on the EliteBook 820/840 G1

With additional eyes from a couple of my colleagues we found it. I'm attaching a screenshot of the sim card slot on the 820. Maybe it will help others  It was under the battery on these models as well, but with a barely visible SIM marking.

Hi,

I was wondering if anyone here has tried this, I have a spare monitor and wondering what you think about doing this. I have an OLD ATI Graphics card (fits PCIE of course) and I know it will work but wondering if it's worth the effort. My 560ti has only a 2 monitor capability and just 1 other PCIE x1 slot is free just above the card.

So anyone here tried this? (I know this works if you do it right.)

(N.B. I have read the websites about how to do this, I am looking for personal, first hand experience.)

A:PCI-E x16 Graphics Card to Fit a PCI-E slot.

Haven't tried it.

I'm confused, though. Are you trying to fit a PCI-E X16 card in an X1 slot? I don't think it's possible.

You can certainly try an X1 card in an X16 slot. I've never seen an X1 graphics card, although I know that they exist.

(I've got an X1 soundcard running in a slot that is X16 mechanical, X4 electrically.)

I have a D-Link DWA-556 card, says it fits into any PCIe slot. My question...is there any advantage to plugging it in a PCIe x16 slot? Faster speed? Better connection?
I have the following:

Asus P6X58D-E

PCIe x1 - open

PCIe x16 - open

PCI - open

PCIe x16 - video card

PCI -sound (Soundblaster card, not working right...have sound, no EQ, etc)

PCIe x16 - USB 3.0 card.

Does it matter where I stick the wifi card? It'll fit nicely into the top slot.

I haven't been shopping for sound cards yet...any help there? I'm on Win7 (64bit), have a great set of Logitech speakers and want some incredible sound.

Thanks.

It won't really fit.
No won't make a difference.
Just stick it in the x1 like a normal person.

The PCI card (Adaptec 29160N RAID) is 32-bit but the expansion slot on the motherboard (Super Micro P4DPR-6GM+) is 64-bit 66MHz PCI (3.3V). The card's POST doesn't show up during boot. Is this because it's 32-bit and the slot is 64-bit?

Well, im an ***. I went ahead and bought a GeForce2 MX 64MB 4X AGP card and forgot that I didn't have an AGP slot on my motherboard. I was wondering if there is anyway to use some sort of adapter so I can still use the board, instead of going through the process of having to sell it.
 

A:AGP Card but no slot on board

Hi Setan

I doubt that there is any way of using an AGP card on your motherboard. No one would bother to make an adaptor when they can just make a PCI version of the card.

I just bought a new video card for a computer in out bar, and I didn't notice that the computer's AGP slot is 4x max. (It is in a tight area, so it is one of those compact compaq desktops)

The card is an 8x AGP card and the slot is apparently 4x max. Is there a way to get this card to work in this computer? A 4x AGP low-profile video card with dual monitor output is hard to find at all, let alone something with decent RAM.

I don't remember the model of the computer off hand...I'll reply with that later. Video card is a geforce 4 128 MB DDR low-profile 8x AGP, dell part number F1811.

Thanks,
Mike

I have an XPSL702X and an Inspiron N5510. On the left side of both these units is a slot titled: 
SDXC/MMC-MS/PRO. I'm hoping this is an "express card" slot, but it looks like a memory card reader/adapter slot. 
Can I utilize an express card in this slot? I need to somehow hook up 1394 firewire to one of these computers. Help!!!

A:Express Card Slot?

It is indeed a memory card reader -- not an Express Card slot.   Neither of these systems will take an ExpressCard -- about the only systems in recent years that had/have the option are Latitude and Precision models -- none of the consumer systems (Inspiron/XPS/Vostro/Studio) of recent vintage support ExpressCards.
