ASUS HD5450 only works in PCIe 2.0 x1 slot, or driver install timeout

Q: ASUS HD5450 only works in PCIe 2.0 x1 slot, or driver install timeout

I'm using Windows Professional bit with an ASUS P H -M PRO motherboard I'm trying to install an ASUS HD video card I've tried both the drivers on the CD that came with the card and the latest version from ASUS's website When I use the CD the error is quot Driver Install the installation failed quot When I install the drivers via Device Manager the error is quot The operation returned because the timeout period expired quot It takes about minutes to attempt to install during which time nothing is happening according to Task Manager The card does function with the quot Video Controller VGA Compatible quot drivers but obviously not very well REDACTED See below My quot Windows Experience Index quot is now instead of with my onboard video I upgraded because the new card supports higher resolution I don't see any visual difference perhaps because this computer is never used for gaming Is this a problem Thanks PianoGuy

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.

You can download it direct from this link (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

I'm having problems after moving my GC to a higher slot on my Asus z87 sabertooth motherboard
You might know the card is quite big ,when i built it i installed it in the slot which was just above the PSU.
So, to give the fans more breathing space i move it.
now when it boots theres no card and it installs the standard VGA drivers.
Nothing in device manager or anything
Any ideas pls??
I thought of a bios reset or maybe a fresh install?
Do you think these might help??

A:Install GTX780 in Other PCIE Slot, Card not found??

Hi Gaz, ideally any gpu should be installed in the top slot, is this the slot it is in now?

You could try re-seating the card to make sure it is definitely located correctly.
Yes you could also try resetting the bios. I would not bother with a clean install of windows though as I doubt that would change anything.

I currently have Motherboard Asus P5B-Plus Vista edition which has
1 x PCI-E x16, 3 x PCI-E x1, 3 x PCI 2.2

I plan to build a data server with this motherboard and buy Promise Supertrak EX8350 which is PCI-E x4 Raid controller card.

My question is. Instead of buying a new motherboard that has PCI-E x4 slot.
Can I just install the PCI-E x4 Raid controller card into PCI-E x16 slot which is normally for video card? And Just buy a cheap regular PCI video card for PCI 2.2 slot?

Hopefully someone could help me with this and I thank you in advance.

The 4X card has the long edge connector for the socket I assume, then yes. I have a second x16/4 slot that, iirc, they say will work as a 4x slot. That said, do they make a PCIE x1 videocard for the short slot?

Hi all

I have H61M-ITX board with 1 x PCI Express 3.0 x16 slot (blue @ x16 mode)

I wan to install there PCI Express x 4 card:

I made clean Win XP SP3 install + all MB drivers on top. After I inserted pcie x4 card and boot up. Win XP didn't detect the card (though leds on card are blinking from periodically)

I then tied LAN adapter I have to check if all is fine with MB. I took this one:

same behaviour - system doesn't see it but if I plug eth cable then leds on lan card blink.

please tell me what is wrong I do? I checked bios for anything related to PCIe and found nothing.

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?

Hello guys, i'm having a bit of trouble with my Sound Blaster Xfi Fatal1ty titanium, the issue is as follows:

There's a huge heat sink that prevents the card fitting properly into the single pcie x1 slot on my board, so what i rly would like to know is if it is possible to have it working on a pcie x4, risk free ofc. I've done a few searches on this forum and i've read it is possible but i rly want to be sure before doing anything. Another doubt i have is if i need to make any changes on my bios cuz i'm not sure if pcie x1 and pcie x4 slots work on the same power specs.

Thx to all in advance

My kids PC has a problem with the new graphics card ASUS EAH5450 (Silent)
All is well when the windows generic "Standard VGA adapter" drivers are installed, but when the ASUS EAH5450 drivers are installed the PC blank screens after the windows logo. The PC is still running but is not getting past the video driver.

I have tried the following:

Installed drivers from ASUS website, ATI website and auto install from windows update.
Started in safe mode no problems
Started in low VGA 640,480 mode with no problems

so now I'm stumped.

@MikeNampui?, welcome to the forum. I can't find any specs for your computer.  The only information that I can find is the End of Life Disassembly instructions.  If you have a USB port on it, you can possible use a USB video adapter.  I am not certain that this would be any better than the integrated video, however.  It sounds like you are not satisfied with the integrated video performance.

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 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?

I've seen many graphic cards and motherboards coming out this year. They support PCIe. I heard that PCIe slot is faster than AGP slot.

There are at least 3 slots of PCIe on many modern motherboards I've seen. (probably 1x,4x, 16x)
- I'm wondering what devices or hardware would use PCIe slot beside the graphic cards?
- Why modern motherboards (today) give you 3 or 4 slots of PCIe?
(Graphic card (single) would only need one slot of it.)
Sound card/modem/etc still use PCI slot, aren't they?
- Anyone knows any motherboard that gives you PCIe slots (2 or 3) and also more than 3 PCI slots? (mostly, I found only 3 PCI slots and PCIe slot on many motherboards)

Thank you for answers...


My thoughts

This "new" PCI-E name is very confuseing and hasn't lured me to update my
Motherboard,cpu and video card yet in order to find out.
I think it's just a way to sell new motherboards and video cards.

A:what will decrease if a pcie 2.0 gpu is placed in a 1.0a slot

Hello nfsworldrace,

The difference is the bus bandwidth speed that a PCI-E 2.0 and 1.0a can handle. Going to a 1.0a will reduce the performance of the graphics card due the smaller bus speed of 1.0a.

PCI Express - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

PCI-E 2.0 = about 4 Gbit/s max (500 MB/s)

PCE-E 1.0a = about 250 MB/s max (2 Gbit/s)

I currently am running a Asus EN8800GT and have been for some time. However the PCIe X16 slot on my Foxconn motherboard says in the manual that is is a PCIe X16 (signal x1)...this concerns me.

Am I getting the full potential out of my vid card? Or is my PCIe slot restricting some of it's potential due to the signal x1 thing as I'm not sure what that means.

Would it be worth it to upgrade my mother board? I am also running 3gb ddr2 667 if it makes a difference.

I am beginning to think that the PCIex slot has failed which means a new mobo, the mobo is an ASUS IPN73-BA.
Do you thonk that the slot has failed or should I look at something else before I condemn the mobo.

I am fairly green when it comes to computers, so I apologize if my termanoligy is a little off.
I recently purchased a Dell Dimension E310 and the current integrated graphics card is not cutting it for Flight Simulator X, so I purchased an ATI Radeon X 1600 Pro PCIe graphics card, as my research indicates, it is supposed to work for this computer, but it doesn't seem to fit in the slot. Am I loosing my mind or is there something that I have overlooked. Please help.


A:ATI Radeon X 1600 Pro PCIe won`t fit in slot?

Do you want the bad news or the...... bad news.....

Your system does not have a PCIe x16 slot, nor does it have an AGP slot.

Your options for upgrading your graphics are extremely limited on that system. You can ONLY use PCI or PCIx1 graphics (not PCI-e x16).

Umm.... Welcome to Techspot? Wish it was with better news. So it goes with Dell....

Here is a good thread outlining your graphics card options for your PCI slot:

This is from my computer's spec sheet:

PCI-Express 2.0 x4 (mech. x16) 1 x using x4 notched connector
PCI-Express 2.0 x8 2 x
PCI-slots 1 x
Slot Notes PCI 32/33 MHz, 3.3V, full-height slot with low-profile-option available

What does this tell me about the type of graphics card I can use?

I'm trying to install the Sapphire ATI Radeon X1800 XT graphics card, however, when I place it in the PCIe slot, I don't get any video. The card only has two DVI outputs. The mother board is a Gigabyte ga-k8n51gmf-9 with an Nvidia 6100 integrated graphics. I can get a signal with VGA off the on board graphics, and I disable it, then try and install the new card and I don't get any signal from either the card, or the VGA output (Integrated). When I take the card out, I get a signal from the VGA again...

Also, the CMOS battery had to be replaced. I'm wondering what settings need to be changed. Its an Award BIOS F7.

A:No video output with GPU in PCIe slot.

Make sure PCi-E is priority for your gfx. Sometimes the bios can be very fussy.

Hello all

i was just about finished my first build but noticed that there was a small slither of thermal paste that some how got into the primary PCIE 16x slot. Must've gotten got on when i pulled the thermal paste away from the CPU heat-spreader.

Anyway, only one single pin inside the slot got touched with a minute amount and the rest went around the slot housing itself, so no biggie there. The small amount was high enough on the pin for me to somewhat "lift" most of it off but there is a barely noticeable discoloration on it now.

If it makes a difference, it is a XFX 680i LT SLI mobo. Now my question is, is this MOBO good for scrap now? I haven't dared install my video cards yet in fear that I might fry something.

A:Thermal paste got into PCIE slot, do i bother using it now?

Hey techspot forums,

I am not sure if this is a problem, but aren't the Asus P5N-D motherboards' PCIE x16 slots supposed to run at 5000 MHz, rather then 2500? Mine runs at a stock 2500 MHz, and can be overclocked to 3000 which is the max.

I have read somewhere that since the slots are PCIE 2.0 it doubles from 2500 to 5000. But I have checked in GPUz and both slots are at PCIE x16 2.0.

Nvidia System tools report that the slot runs at 3000 max, once i have adjusted the base FSB from 100 to 120. So could the multiplier not be working properly for the PCIE bus?


A:PCIe slot clock speed 3000MHz

no... PCIe 2.0 slots are x16 speeds, which is 2500mhz. why are you looking to overclock the slots? those boards are unstable enough as is...

Someone gave me a machine which is a dell 755 sff, I decided to upgrade my graphics with a low profile sapphire HD5450.

I installed the drivers on the copy of windows 7 which worked fine, I later found out that the copy of windows was not geniune, so I purchased a geniune copy, when I installed the drivers on this copy, now I get BSOD when detecting card.

I downloaded the latest drivers and still no joy.

A:BSOD trying to install Sapphire HD5450 Graphics Card

Did you install the motherboard chipset drivers? Generally, Windows 7 will install those, but not always the case.

When I worked Dell's forum the standard Dell install sequence is (1) Install Windows (2) Install Dell Desktop (or Laptop) System Software (3) Install motherboard chipset drivers (4) Install device drivers including video, sound, etc.

The sound is another issue, if it is Win 7 compatible Window will have installed the generic basic function High Definition Audio Codec (drivers). In most cases with Dell you need the Dell provided sound driver for proper operation.

Here is the link to the Dell drivers for the OptiPlex 755, Vista 64 bit, which are Windows 7 compatible.
There are 3 chipset drivers listed, download and install the Intel motherboard chipset drivers first.

Product Support | Dell US

There is an Analog Devices sound driver listed, but it is ONLY for Windows XP and that is NOT compatible with Vista/Windows 7. If Windows did not install the HD Audio Codec, you may be out of luck with the sound unless you use a separate sound card that is Win 7 compatible.

My ASUS K8V SE Deluxe has an on-board (ASUS Wi-Fi Slot) which is different than your standard PCI slot. When I shop around for a wireless card all I seem to find are PCI cards and nothing specifically for my special wi-fi slot.
Is this slot so new that it is unsupported by any other manufactures other than ASUS? ie (WiFi-g/WiFi-b WLAN Card)*

Which type of card would you buy and why?

Thanks for your time all you smart, attractive, well mannered, wonderful people.

A:Solved: PCI or ASUS Wi-Fi Slot? Recommendations anyone?

Here's a link to info on the Asus website, it seems it's specific to Asus boards, anyway you can order the card from them. check it out.

Asus Wi-Fi

I'd go with the PCI, their pretty cheap. like $15-$20 bucks, and they work just fine.

Just a quick one? I would like to know what the 3rd slot for a pci-e graphics card is for in this sli mobo. As far as I know sli gaming only allows for 2 GPUs yet theres 1 more slot in a different colour in between them?


A:ASUS Striker Extreme 3rd PCI-E Slot?

There are 3 expansion slots... 1 PCIeX1, and 2 PCI v2.2 slots

The PCIeX1 could be used for a 3rd video card. The 2 PCI v2.2 slots are for standard PCI add-in cards

I want to buy a Geforce 2 MX400 video card and found several brands (Inno, XFX, PixelView, etc.) but I found no information about the voltages these cards work.

I'm afraid of buying a card and it doesn't work with 3,3V (despite the universal connector) and then burn my machine.

How can I identify if the card works in 3,3V? Is there any information printed on the card or in some chip?

I guess so, have you ever tried to establish the communication with the motherboard maker yet? Many of them has it own support lines that can provides the RMA informations.

How? Did you actually force it to be seated in backward position? Look closely at the notch of RAM, they can only go one way, and you can feel the pressure of installing the ram if it goes in wrong way.

I have a problem with my wireless pc card.
It works in one slot but when plugged in the other one it gets stuck on acquiring network address.
Is there any way to fix it, or are the two ports different.

A:Satellite Pro 6000 - wireless pc card works only in one slot

Hi buddy,

According the user manual both slots are normal PC card slots so usually the WLAN card should work in both slots.

But why is it so important that the PC card works in both slots?
Do you have another PC card that you can test in second slot?

What operating system you are using and what WLAN card is it exactly?

One problem that is common when installing these big video cards into Micro-ATX motherboards is that you may not get the card to fully seat properly because some obstruction is holding it up.

Carefully check the entire card/MB area to see if there is anything that may be propping the card up.
Remove the card and re-seat it looking and listening carefully to hear the rear tang on the video card "click" into place.

I m trying to figure out if my problem is my graphics card EVGA GTX GB or my motherboard Biostar TZ A LGA This computer is a brand new build Please click my system specs for more details I have two PCI-E slots There is one x slot and one x slot of the time my machine freezes a few seconds after powering card in work, in Graphics x4 ?? fine works x16 PCI-E doesn't the slot on at the Graphics card in PCI-E x16 doesn't work, works fine in the x4 slot ?? BIOS logo screen or a few seconds after that while inserted in the x slot Sometimes it works however yet it is so infrequently that I ve given up on the x slot for now It will even freeze after I ve entered my BIOS settings page even just while browsing around in it The same graphics card in my PCI-E x slot works fine if you ignore the fact that it s running at it s potential speed At least I can boot the machine up I ve spoken with a few different professionals about this and the conclusion is that my problem lies either a with my PCI-E x slot or b with my GTX Apparently the graphics card COULD work just fine in the x slot and still be damaged Now I know that you re going to tell me to try a different card in my computer or try the card in a different computer However that isn t practical for me at the moment I was wondering what you guys think or if anyone has experience with this first-hand What are you leaning towards Mobo or Gfx card nbsp

Relevancy 53.75%

I've just gotten a BSOD saying my display driver timed out while I was in windows. The monitors lost their image, and began searching the various ports for a connection, then the BSOD showed up. This is the first time I've actually seen it happen, but I believe it has happened before since I have come back to see my computer has rebooted/shutdown.

This OS is a Full Retail fresh install as of about two weeks ago. The system is brand new as of about 2 weeks ago. The only pieces I've retained from my former computer (which was about 3 years old) are the power supply, some hard drives, and the keyboard. Any other information should be listed in my system specs.

I'm planning on overclocking, but I want to get this BSOD sorted out before I do.

Thank you.

A:BSOD in Windows Display Driver Timeout

"It's not a true crash, in the sense that the bluescreen was initiated only because the combination of video driver and video hardware was being unresponsive, and not because of any synchronous processing exception".

Since Vista, the "Timeout Detection and Recovery" (TDR) components of the OS video subsystem have been capable of doing some truly impressive things to try to recover from issues which would have caused earlier OSs like XP to crash.

As a last resort, the TDR subsystem sends the video driver a "please restart yourself now!" command and waits a few seconds.

If there's no response, the OS concludes that the video driver/hardware combo has truly collapsed in a heap, and it fires off that stop 0x116 BSOD.

If playing with video driver versions hasn't helped, make sure the box is not overheating.

Try removing a side panel and aiming a big mains fan straight at the motherboard and GPU.

Run it like that for a few hours or days - long enough to ascertain whether cooler temperatures make a difference.

If so, it might be as simple as dust buildup and subsequently inadequate cooling.

I would download cpu-z and gpu-z (both free) and keep an eye on the video temps CPUID - System & hardware benchmark, monitoring, reporting

I got a new USB 3.0 4-port card in the mail today. I installed the card and Windows could not find the driver for it. It came with a CD which has drivers for every product they make so I don't know which one to install. Of course there were no instructions and it came from, right China and I don't see a product brand on the box. I contacted the shipper but don't hold out much hope for a reply. I am about to write this off as a loss. Anyone have any ideas on where I might find a driver?
