Asus M4N68T-M LE V2 won't detect external graphics card in PCI-E Slot

Q: Asus M4N68T-M LE V2 won't detect external graphics card in PCI-E Slot

Hey guys, I was hoping someone could help me with a problem my friend and I are having with his new Motherboard.

He's running an Asus M4N68T-M LE V2 and while the rest of the board works fine, it just won't see his graphics card in the PCI-E slot. We've tried various solutions and none have yet to yield any results.

We've tried disabling the onboard graphics through device manager etc. The board also doesn't let you turn off the onboard from BIOS, only allows you to set the priority of the display adapters, which is set to the PCI-E first. It just won't show his card in device manager.

His spec is: Asus M4N68T-M LE V2. AMD Phenom II x4 965 3.4Ghz Black Edition. 4GB (2x2GB) Mushkin 1333Mhz DDR3 Ram. Nvidia Geforce GTS450 GFX Card.

I've also tried using my ATI Radeon 5750HD Card and still shows no detection.

We've been trying this for over a day and we just can't figure it out. Help please

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.)

A: Asus M4N68T-M LE V2 won't detect external graphics card in PCI-E Slot

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.

how to check my pcie slot working or not. When i inserted nvidia Gforce 9500gt it is not detecting my mother board (Asus M2N VM HDMI ) but graphics cards fan is working. then how can i identifies the slot is faulty or not. Is their any changes to be done in the bios. Please help me. My processor is AMD Phenom 9550 and 3Gb DDR2 ram is inserted.
 

A:PCI-E slot issue or any changes to be done in BIOS to detect my graphics card

You do need to go into BIOS and disable the onboard video card in order for one plugged into a PCI slot to work. That is most likely your problem.


There are diagnostic cards that you can plug in to test your motherboard such as the one at this site:

http://www.pc-diagnostics.com/pc_diagnostics_tools/flippost_isa_pci_bus.shtml

You also might call nearby computer stores to see if they have the equipment there and will run the diagnostic for you if you bring in your motherboard.

A:Newbie upgrading my computer, What Ram to use to ASUS M4N68T

You would probably be better off just removing what you have and replace it with a 8GB thats 2 modules. A 2x4GB Kit.

Essentially, you want to keep it in matching pairs of 2 since its a dual channel board. I would not use 3 modules.



But, in regards to upgrading, what exactlly are you trying to accomplish and why?
Going from 4-8GB may not help you at all, and if it does it may not help much at all unless you have need for it. I mean, if you really have need for it it will be helpful but ....

If the purpose is to speed up your computer, Im sorry to say you will likely be disappointed.

A:Asus M4N68T-M NO AUDIO OUTPUT DEVICE IS INSTALLED

When you instaled, did you install the ASUS motherboard chipset drivers and then the ASUS sound driver? If not, give that a try.

Also, is the sound enabled in the BIOS? check that first before installing the motherboard chipset drivers and the ASUS sound driver. That may be the problem as Windows, during the install, if the sound module is detected will at least install the generic, basic function, HD Audio Codec and from what I see that was not installed.

What is the model number of the ASUS motherboard? That would help, too.

Hello all! I'm working through an issue that has me out of my wits and under the gun. I purchased a barebones system from a reputable source that consists of my listed specs. I was utilizing the computer and began to get random BSOD and all indicators led me to a failed video card. My nVidia 9600GSO, typically a terrific 16x PCI-e card, simply stopped outputting a DVI-D video image. I reverted to the onboard (M4N68T-M) VGA video port to search for a failed or corrupted driver, but it everything appeared to be functioning as expected (minus the lack of video via the 9600GSO). I swapped a nVidia 8500 and managed to get DVI-D video output, but one of my onboard RAM slots seemed to be unable to recognize the full amount of the RAM. After reseating the RAM and back-up video card, I rebooted to (1)-long and (2)-short beeps. My Asus motherboard is using an Award BIOS and that seems to indicate a VIDEO error, but the inability to boot into my BIOS at all seems to indicate that my Motherboard is toast. Based on this and the system specs that I have in my profile, does it sound like a motherboard failure, or am I missing something in the way of testing that might turn up an issue more (or less) sinister?

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.)

Alright, so I got an Aspire M5811 since 2010. One day, it suddenly wouldn't start up. Beeping noises are heard from the CPU, 1 long 2 short. After a bit of research, it seems that the computer could not detect the graphic card, which results in it not starting up. So, I reinserted the graphic card. Failed. Did it again. Failed. Repeated for 1 hour. Still hearing 1 long 2 short beeps. Then after a few (maybe 3) hours, I tried again, reinserting the graphics driver, connecting the monitor cable and turned it on. It worked. I didn't know what happened but it worked. After I was done using the computer, I turned it off. The next day (today), the problem came back. Reinserted, plugged monitor cable, turned on and it works. Now I don't know whether its the graphic card or the slot. Wonder if replacing it will work. I'm afraid that if I turn off the PC, the problem will return. Any help would be appreciated.

(I never opened the CPU since 22/7/2012 for cleaning.)
 

A:Graphics card broken or is it the slot?

Hey Falconet. I think I would be far more likely that the graphic card is flaky since in your research the beeps point to the graphics card. If the slot were damaged, chances are you wouldn't get it to work at all, and since it worked one day and not the next, and since the slot itself won't break on it's own, I would suspect the card first. It wouldn't hurt to check both connection points of the cable the next time, although the beeps indicate the card's operation itself as not being right.

Ok I've got an Asus mobo, this one in fact:

Newegg.com - ASUS P5K EPU LGA 775 Intel P35 ATX Intel Motherboard

I've had this mobo for the last two years without any problems.

Over the last year or so, my first Asus 9600GT graphics card went bad (the fan warped & stopped working, causing it to overheat a lot)

Then I got the new one & ran that one for maybe almost a year and then the same thing happened, the fan warped & went bad.

Now I cant not say for sure which slot the 1st bad graphics card was in, if it was in #1 or #2

But I can say for sure that the 2nd time it was in PCIx16 1

Now I've received the 3rd card & installed it in PCIx16 1 and within a little while, I noticed the card was giving off a lot of heat, I unplugged it and upon closer inspection I see the fan was slightly warped again.

I will also say that I didnt inspect the card when I got it to be sure everything was ok, maybe they sent me another bad card...?

Now the fan still turns smoothly, but you can see it starting to cock up & become warped.

I've since talked to Asus again 7 they are doing another RMA for me, so the graphics card is covered.

But I'd like to get to the bottom of things and fix the root of the problem.

If the 7600 is in the PCI e slot, by definition it is not integrated. You should be able to pull it out and swap in a newer card without any issues, so long as your power supply can handle it. Be sure to remove your old graphics drivers before performing the upgrade.

I believe that my dedicated graphics card on my laptop has issues as whenever i try to play a game, it BSODs after a minute of plying. The laptop runs fine on the Intel integrated chip. I could potentially fix the issue myself if I were to know where the port is. Laptop -> Toshiba Satellite L50-B-1P1

Hello,

Today I put my computer to sleep and returned about 30 minutes later to start it back up. My computer's power light and fans came on and tried to start up repeatedly but after the computer tried around five times, it made a long beep followed by two short beeps. I looked up the type of issue those beeps meant for my motherboard and it was a video error. I found that when removing my GeForce 8800 GT from my PCI-E slot and plugging my monitor directly into the integrated graphics card everything works fine. It booted up and had to reinstall the new drivers for the GeForce 1650 (Integrated), but everything worked fine. I figured that meant my graphics card or RAM was broken, so I took it to my closest computer repair store. They tested the power supply to see if it was supplying enough power to the card and it passed. They also tested the RAM and the graphics card to see if they were broken, but they both passed. They told me to either leave it with them for a week or just use the integrated graphics (which of course stubborn me chose to take it home for now). I am willing to leave it at the store if necessary and I also have a compatible motherboard in mind that I could buy if that will solve the issue, but before I make any actions I figured I would take advantage of these forums and hold out on using the different card for a week or so.

Do you have PCI express slots, or just PCI? The only information on the Thinkcenter 52 motherboard is that it has only PCI slots. AFAIK, the ASUS 8400GS only came in PCI express.

Hi,

I have a Radeon HD 4500 graphics card that's plugged into the PCI express slot on my motherboard.

The heat sink on the graphics card is huge and covers the next PCI slot down completely which I now need. I don't want to buy a new graphics card as the one I have works fine and I can't afford a new one.

I can take the heat sink off but I don't want the thing to overheat and blow.

I have looked for a heat sink but I can't find one this small enough to fit.

Can anyone offer a low cost solution to the problem?

The graphics card is a Radeon HD 4500.

Cheers

A:Graphics card heat sink blocking PCI slot

It will self destruct in the blink of an eye with no heat sink on it. Also, the current heat sink is as big as it is for a reason. IMHO putting a smaller one on is probably not a good idea unless it specifically states its compatible with that video card. Water cooling might work but that will likely cost as much as finding a new video card.

First of all I guess I should list my system...

2.7Ghz Dual Core AMD
ASRock N68PV-GS - MOBO
ASUS EAH4350 1GB - PCI-E Graphics
4GB DDR2 - 1066
500w PSU
Windows 7 Ultimate 64-Bit OS

I think that's everything that is relevent, if anything else will help please don't hesitate to ask and I will add information as needed

Secondly, THIS SYSTEM DID WORK!

I can't remember exactly when it all went wrong and as I hadn't been gaming for months it was a kind of irrelevent problem when I did a format (PC Just got clogged and so this was the easy option) and my graphics card didn't display a picture on my monitor, I just took it out and used the Onboard crappy graphics.

I am now faced with a dilemma, SOMETHING isn't right, my PC (without Graphics card installed) just would not progress past the BIOS screen, failing to load drive information etc. Even when I took off everything and tried to boot the board with no other devices present.

First I naturally changed the PSU (Luckily I had another exactly the same model etc) and the same problem existed.

So annoyed, I rifled through my older PC bits n bobs and built up an old 1.8Ghz system with AGP grapics but after realising that with only 1GB of DDR1 it was as useless as band aid for a severed limb, I tried again with my current system. This time it booted!

While I had it running I made sure to download the latest BIOS version, and upgraded.

Now I have the issue of the PCI-E Graphics... Read more

While contemporaneous ATI/AMD graphics cards will work, newer generation AMD cards are generally not backward compatible with older ThinkCentres.   I suggest you search for which newer Nvidia will work with your system. 
 
The readme file for the Nvidia driver for your system has a list of supported cards, but since it is from 2009, it is dated.

I don't know if its a PCI slot or a PCI express cause it really doesn't say so.....

So if it is a PCI, can i get one from best buy becuase it has the option to get a PCI video card or a PCI express.

The memory for it i guess they said it can hold 512 or 256mb.

A:What Graphics card slot is hp media center pc m7067c?

That's an old mobo....and all the slots PCI not PCIe. That being said you might find a decent PCI GPU for that mobo.

If you really want to get creative or ambitious, uprade your MOBO and RAM and then get a GPU. You can keep all your original hardware and case.

Hey guys,

Wondering if y'all can help me with my worries.

A while ago I bought a GeCube Radeon 9800 PRO 256mb AGP card, and installed this blazing new baby in to my pc. I bought HL2 and Far Cry to enjoy it's yummy goodness. Much fun was had until HL2 started crashing, more and more frequently. Far Cry didn't seem to like it much and would never last too long. It really started to worry me after a while, and I took it back and swapped it for the next one up, the 9800 eXTreme 128mb (or was it other way around? can't remember which was pro or eXTreme). It was the same brand, GeCube, but then that one just finished my motherboard off and completely fried the AGP slot.

I had to send the motherboard off; it was still under warranty thank god, but when I tried the graphics card out in the new MB, it started to screw up again. So I whipped it out and sold it to a friend before it did any real damage.

Now I'm running a 9500 in my PC and seriously wanting to upgrade (mainly for BF2 goodness), and am REALLY wary of having my AGP slot fried again.

My specs should show up here... what do you guys think?

Thanks,
Adam

I've plugged it into my motherboard: MCP73VT-PM but the thing is that I don't receive any signal from it when I connect the vga cable into it, tried with hdmi cable aswell...
Also bought a new PSU 550V to make it match the requirements..

Can it be that the onboard vga graphics collides with the new card? If so... could anyone help me out? I've tried almost everything, spent the whole day trying to get it to work.

My BIOS settings doesnt support editing the onboard stuff.

I can hear the windows startup sound but it shows no display so i plugged the cable into the motherboad and an error box opend wich stated "ERROR CAN NOT FIND GRAPHICS CARD" with no additional information. I searched online and found that asus smart doctor can cause this and they recommend that you uninstall and reinstall the drivers to fix this problem but the pc is not picking up the graphics card to reinstall all the needed drivers. I also found people with the same problem and after they did a clean install of windows7/vista and all the drivers the error box still appeared. Does anyone know how to resolve this problem? Your help will be greatly appreciated.

Do you have the PCIe set as first to initialize in the BIOS? Also, have you tried the card in another slot on the MoBo? Have you tried cleaning out the slot with canned air? Have you tried using a pencil eraser to gently clean the contacts in the GPU where it plugs into the PCIe?

And please, thoroughly fill out your System Specs by clicking on the tab under your post.

But...the card didn't fit into the back-plate. It's like a millimeter off.... There is a little slot that the back-plate slots go into but it doesn't fit into the slot. It's almost like it needs to be a millimeter longer. Thanks to anyone who helps.

I'm trying to figure out if my problem is my graphics card (EVGA GTX 460 1GB) or my motherboard (Biostar TZ68A+ LGA1155).

This computer is a brand new build. Please click my system specs for more details.

I have two PCI-E 2.0 slots. There is one x16 slot and one x4 slot.

90% of the time, my machine freezes a few seconds after powering on (at the BIOS logo screen or a few seconds after that) while inserted in the x16 slot. Sometimes it works, however, yet it is so infrequently that I've given up on the x16 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 2.0 x4 slot works fine (if you ignore the fact that it's running at 1/4 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 x16 slot; or (b) with my GTX 460. Apparently the graphics card COULD work just fine in the x4 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?

Hello,

I recently updated the drivers for my video card, NVIDIA's discrete GeForce GT 335M, and afterwards I was unable to get my monitor to display anything. My laptop screen is broken so I use a standalone monitor with VGA cables for my display. So after this I tried the obvious troubleshooting, using my fn key to switch between displays and holding the windows key + P to pick the projector option, both to no avail. I then started windows in safe mode and rolled back the most recent driver update for the video card. Since then my laptop does not detect the video card, like it is gone. I still have the updates installed, NVIDIA Control Panel still exist but says no card is detected.

Also I can not get BIOS to run on boot, possibly because my monitor won't display anything until it gets to the windows home screen.

Any help would be greatly appreciated, thanks,

Shawn
