Q: Solved: Enabling video card in BIOS


I have purchased a new video card and I think I know what to do when it arrives... just not sure about the steps.

Ok, so I'm currently using onboard video. I was told that all I need to do is stick it in the PCI-E x16 slot and plug the power cable into the video card -- then enable it in BIOS.

How exactly do I enable it in BIOS? And do I need to disable the onboard video somehow?
Step by step instructions would be very helpful.

I am using an Asus M2NPV-VM Motherboard.

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 http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

aiight, i have an AMD Duron processor, with a PCCHIPS K7 333 Motherboard. I assume that it had integrated video which worked for some time.

One day, while trying to get my DVD-ROM to work, i got a message kinda like this.

"You need to disable the TV Out function to work PowerDVD player"

stupidly and accidently, i shut off my videoadapter.

for about a week now, ive been trying everything to get it to work again. Everything up unitl the Windows XP welcome screen works, but then blackness. I know my PC still works, i can hear ths Windows XP start sounds and stuff.

i tried following a keystroke scenario, from holding the Windows Logo button and pressing R, "typing devmsgmt.msc" going to device manager and enabling it, but no avail. The best shot i had according to my friend was to install a different Video Card, and then using that one enable the old one. yet,i i installed the card in the AGP slot and i still the get the same problem.

I tried changing the Primary Graphics Adapter from PCI to AGP, which did nothing.

And then also tried to disable Allocate IRQ to PCI VGA, just to see what would happen. Nothing.

Idk what card i have, but i know it should be decent enough to run XP. Its not the best kind of card either, its just one im borrowing.

It had a black heat sync on it but no places to hook up wires and no jumpers to which i can see.

Im stumped.

Try pressing f8 during boot, go into safe mode.
If you are unable to get into safe mode, then
it seems to me you may need to reset cmos.

I'm assuming you have a normal boot screen prior to XP

I installed a new HD last weekend to go with my old unit. While preparing for the process I searched and downloaded all the drivers for all my equipment. I then reformatted both drives, did a clean install of Windows XP Pro. While searching for the latest driver updates I found that Gigabyte (my motherboard) had a video card BIOS update for its GeForce FX 5700 Ultra. I have a PNY GeForce FX 5700 Ultra. I was about download the BIOS update but decided to go to the PNY website and check for it there. Neither PNY nor Nvidia show a BIOS update for that card. Nothing about video card BIOS at all on those two sites.
My question is...Should I try the Gigabyte video card BIOS update? I am having a minor problem with FarCry that is video card related. Is the BIOS unique to each company or is it the same from PNY to Gigabyte? If there is an update on the Gigabyte site wouldn't there be a need for the same on the other companys sites?

I just got an HP h8-1237c, which has an i5-2320 processor. I thought it was a good move, but I need to run other copies of windows in VirtualBox, which I can do fine in my old ASUS i5 computer. This one tells me I can't because I can't enable VT-x, as there's no place on the bios to do this. HP tech support was not helpful at all, and I even had to define virtualization to the tech.

Is there a way around this so I can install and run a 64 bit OS on this new PC, such as Windows 7, 64bit, or even 64 bit linux?

Thanks for the guidance in advance.

Answered own question. Went to change setting in BIOS, setting was already at max at 8.
However, I noticed that the setting for onboard or PCI was set to PCI. CHANGED it to onboard. (That's what I have.)
Ramped all of the settings back up, still does it. Just not as often.

System was fine then,
Went from XP, to 7, then back to XP.
Good install, but monitor would flicker. (Green on, checked cables, etc. Conclusion: "Driver Problem")
Set SOME display property's low, reinstalled drivers, same problem.
Set "Video Acceleration" to almost none, and checked "Enable Write Combining,"
Reduced resolution to 800X600, reduced from 32 bit to 16 bit.
DPI is 96, 60 Htz, High Color
Flickering of monitor has pretty much quit. Only very occasionally as I write this.

I have an Intel mother board with onboard video. In getting ready to install my new pci-E video card, I checked BIOS settings and noted IGD DVMT memory and also aperture size. (These are for use of regular memory for the onboard video). Also the video select is set to auto for both primary video adaptor and to auto instead of pci-e and pci graphics.

I will insert the new video card, powerup and disable the onboard video through device manager.

When I insert the new video card and powerup, will the "software" disable the two IGD settings?

I will try to keep this short. I tried another forum here but had no luck. Maybe the hardware folks can help.

The other day i was happily playing games when my video card seemed to fritz out. The screen filled with visual garbage and di dthe same when i rebooted. I plugged in an old card which got to me to desktop but locked up there every time. Would work in safe mode but not regular mode or VGA mode. I tried a third card and got a bunch of beeps telling me there was no card. The catch is that all 3 of these cards seem to work in my old system i was using to test them.

Related problem:
I decided to try a windows reinstall since i did not hav emuch to lose on my computer. Since the computer only works in safe mode o tried it from there. Setup locked up. I tried booting from CD. next. It loads all the files then says it will start setup and locks up there. Does this every time.

To sum up:
i can not get any of my 3 video cards to work. 1 gives visual garbage, 1 is nnot recognized by the board, and 1 locks up on desktop. The one that locks up at desktop will work in safe mode but not VGA mode. I can not do a windows reinstall from CD or by playing CD in safe mode. Also Safe mode will randomly lock up if i try to do something like run an executable file.

So what to people think? MB going bad? Bad AGP slot might explain cards not working but why would that one work in safe mode then? Why the heck can i not reinstall windows when booting from CD?

Hello guys,
I have an AMD XP 1600 CPU and the motherboard has built in shared video. I recently bought a PCI vid card because the board doesn't have any AGP slot. First, I forgot to disable the on-board video before installing the PCI vid, but it works at 8 bit resolution. The other PCI cards such as modem and sound didn't work properly. The screen were blurry. So I played with the BIOS. I disable the shared memory on board thought that the PCI Vid card would take over, but the system wouldn't start up at all. When I restarted the computer there were beeps from the machine and the screen goes blank without even start up the screen where I press DEL. to go to the BIOS. How do I reset the BIOS so that I will start up default? I took out the PCI Vid card and it still doesn't work. If I disconnect the power and take out the little battery will it auto reset the BIOS and motherboard to default? Thanks in advance guys!

A:Please help with BIOS, Video Card, and MotherBoard

You can take out the battery, but also look for a small jumper often near the battery. Usually the set up is that the 1 and 2 pins are jumpered. Briefly moving the jumper to pins 2 and 3 will reset CMOS.

Hello. I am havin trouble with my VideoCard and the manufacturer is unable to assist me in the bios. I do not have a technical supported computer by Microsoft, so they are also unable to help me. I am need someone to help me configure my IRQ settings within my Windows XP Bios so that my Geforce 5500 fx card is on its own irq number. Currently the card is also stationed with a ethernet network adapter and a USB plugin. The company said it needs to be on its own number, but when I try to change the resources, they are unavaliable (tinted). Then they said I will have to do it manually through the bios, but I tried and it continuously moves the network adapter with it. I can not find any setting in the bios to MANUALLY or somehow change the VGA to its own IRQ resource. They mentioned reinstalling windows XP for the HAL, but I have much valuable information to refresh my computer and I do not have a removable hard drive to back up my files.

Also...if you are unable to help me, please give me a valid phone number for a secondary support line that will manage my bios that will not cost me anything. That would be much appreciated!

Hi, I just built a computer (not my first) and I used an ASROCK P4AL-800 motherboard. When i started up it said:

Auto recovery function:
Please insert BIOS disk.

Long story short- nothing worked, not the CD that came with the motherboard, nothing. So i took out BIOS and put it back in. Now, my video card doesn't work. Its a Geforce FX2200 256MB AGP 8x card. But, I can now hear the computer booting up from the windows cd so my Bios problem is fixed, now its just a metter of the video card...

I just did a Google search to see if your particular Mobo has Onboard VGA . Did not find anything conclusive - but if it does you might want to check in Bios that Onboard VGA is set to Disabled as that may well cause a conflict with your Graphics Card.

A:Using my BIOS to disable my Video Card... HOW??

I presume you're using a laptop (video is integrated on laptops unlike desktops) To access BIOS, there is a message when you boot that says something like "Press F1 for setup". The actual key varies from manufacturer to manufacturer. For Dell it's F2, others it's DEL, some it's F1, ... Just watch for the message and press that key immediately! Once in BIOS, read the top menu selection for video settings.

I replaced my AGP video card and my system was unable to boot with the new card. I tried clearing the BIOS CMOS with the jumper pins back to default and still no boot. I put the old video card back in and it booted normally.

The system is an MSI K8T Neo2 v2.0 with AGP 8X slot 3.0 spec, the new card is ASUS V9520-X with AGP 8X. I know that the card is OK because I took it out of another system where it has been working. The Award BIOS is up to date at v3.6.

What could be the problem here? Any ideas or suggestions would be appreciated.

We bought a used M6600 in very nice shape.  The seller wiped the HDD, no OS.  Bios is A12.  When viewing system info, the Nvidia 3000M is not listed.  When running a diagnostic through F12, all tests show good but it shows video from the integrated intel HD GPU, not the Nvidia. 

I grabbed a Linux Mint disk to try to get booted in to see if it would be visible, but the screen eventually goes black after some loading, but the cursor is still active, indicating a possible vid issue, maybe? 
I removed the keyboard to ensure the card is in it, and there is certainly a card there.  I just need to ensure the health of the card before we get any further with it. 

Can anyone advise how to check this further?  Would the diagnostic testing show an issue with the card?  Possible missing driver?

You revert by downloading an older version of the BIOS and flashing your video card with that.

HI everyone, We had some Hp 8000 Elite Small form factor Business pcs deliverd to us by hp. It had W7 on and Nvedia NVS 300 graphics card installed besides onboard one.

Onboard one doesnt. Once the extra card has been taken off , on board one works ok.

Hello, i recently bought a HP ENVY h8-1437c, Windows 8, I replaced the (NVIDIA GeForce GT 620) With a (Sapphire HD 7770 1GB GDDR5). I hooked up the 6 pin power and made sure that the card is seated properly multipule times.  On startup I get 6 long beeps along with the power LED flashing. Then a few seconds later the power LED turns blue and the PC starts up fine. The card seems to be working fine as well. I have played games on the max settings with no issues, where as before the GeForce card couldent do this. I was reading across the web that it might have something to do with the BIOS secured boot enabled, so I disabled it with no change, same 6 long beep then the PC starts up fine. I guess my question is, is this okay that it beeps? Is it causing any internal issues? The only things I have done so far are adding the video card software, disabled secure boot (using the old GeForce card to get into BIOS) and reseat the new vid card/6pin power wire.

A:H8-1534 Had to reset BIOS but don't have original video card

There is no onboard video so you have no choice other than to purchase and install a PCIe-x16  gen. 1 or gen. 2 video card. I suggest purchasing an ATI Radeon video card that does not have power requirements exceeding 450 Watts. CHeck the manufacturer's website before purchasing a video card to ensure that.  Check the power supply connectors to see if there is a PCIe six or eight-pin power connector. You may have to purchase an adapter if the replacement video card requires a PCIe power connector.

Just had a pc built. First, they did not give me what I paid for: exchanging the parts I ordered and paid for with inferior ones. Made them fix it. [They did not know that I do the pc's at work.] Now?...my AMD Athlon 2500+ w/ASUS 333 was set wrong in BIOS: 1100 at 100/33 [easy fix]. I run Win 98. They say 98 cannot recognize the speed, reason for the Bios' low setting. [Funny, it works fine on all the systems I set up at work.] Then my DVD burner is recognized as a CD-R/RW and does not play nor record DVD's. Dr Hardware recognizes it as a Samsung CD-R/RW as well. None of the DVD software I use works. Also, the Radeon 9200 they sold me, which normally is a decent card, causes the system to freeze MANY times consistently, but they claim it's a "software" issue. Tried it on another pc with the same results. Used a video bench test and it froze on both pc's. It has never froze on several other systems I had set up prior to this. If the problem is at my end, what could I be doing wrong?

Hi Playbub
'input not supported' would normally indicate that either the resolution or the frequensy that you have set for the card are not supported by the monitor, you can check this by starting in safe mode or in vga mode, in these modes you computer will start with the ms default drivers and settings

A:Enabling USB 2.0 in BIOS

John - I'm not familiar with your motherboard or BIOS, however my first suggestion would be to head over to the ASUS website (http://support.asus.com/download/download.aspx) and download updated drivers. There's an update under the Utilities category called "Microsoft KB817900 USB fail to enter S3 patch file for Windows XP." Try that.

I would also make sure that your BIOS is the most recent version.

I don't have the option in my BIOS to enable Virtulization (enabling VT-x in BIOS). I have a HP Slimline Desktop - 450-a160. I've run a cpu scan and it does support it. But the BIOS has very limited settings. I tried updating the BIOS to: Rev.A But that didn't help. Please advise, I really need to get this too work.

Lately, I have installed 2x 4 GB RAM sticks into my HP Slimline s5-1200z a few hours ago, however, upon doing this, my graphics for my games have been messing up, and sometimes my AMD video driver will crash, causing major annoyance when trying to play any games I intend to play. When I downloaded an application called Portable SIW, I noticed something quite alarming, as shown in the picture below, circled.

Here is a second picture for reference.

And for another reference.

Any possible reason for this to occur? Thanks if you can help.

A:BIOS reports wrong values in RAM, crashing AMD video card

Well; since you are saying the bios is reporting wrong values; you probably should check your system board "builders" site to check for any bios updates that may hopefully correct this issue. If not; also check the ram modules one by one to make sure non of them are bad and that none of the ram slots are possibly bad. Take all ram sticks out and put one at a time back in and see if you can pinpoint the issue.

I got an emachines computer last year, and it came with onboard video. I bought a PCI card, and it worked just fine. I was looking for an upgrade, so I got a new AGP card. The computer will not pick up the card (and yes, it has an AGP slot), and nowhere in the BIOS can you enable AGP. Looking for a new BIOS seems to lead me in circles from site to site...and I'm not really knowledgeable when it comes to messing with the BIOS.

I can hopefully give more information if needed...but at this point I don't really know what to post to help anyone.

Chipset : Intel i845GE

Any help would be MUCH appreciated.

A:Help enabling AGP with a very limited BIOS.

In most modern mobos, just putting in that AGPcard automatically disables the onboard video.
Worth a shot. If that does not work, see if there is a jumper on the motherboard to disable onboard video.
Question: how did you get the PCIcard to work? Try the same for AGP.

Despite the warnings, I tried enabling RAID in BIOS (Intel chipset) and almost fried my Win 7 installation. So, I now believe for myself that the only way to enable RAID is to also reinstall Windows 7.

Does anyone know whether a data partition on the Windows boot drive would be affected?

Are there any clear advantages to RAID in a one-drive system? (I did not see a way to enable NCQ).

A:Enabling RAID in BIOS

I looked into old RAID technology because of the many problems it is giving with Win7 installations. It can require reformatting the drives with loss of data to set up RAID.

It also needs two drives to be RAID, I believe, as it is redundant array.

RAID is completely redundant IMO with drive imaging now even built into Windows 7. Best to set up modern AHCI config of your SATA controllers.

Just load the AHCI drivers from your mobo CD/Downloads page into the installer.

I've been using Kaspersky Total Security with a Microsoft 7 Operating System.  I recently upgraded to Microsoft 10 and Kaspersky's "Safe Money"feature is unable to provide complete security protection for managing my financial matters, e.g. bank account credit cards, etc.     Kaspersky technical support indicates the issue is enabling the visualization within the BIOS, and recommended that I contact HP, the manufacturer of my PC for assistance as this falls outside the scope of Kaspersky support.  Additionally, is this a software rather than a hardware issue? Of course my device is no longer under warranty,  so I do hope someone can be of assistance. Many Thanks
