Q: runing on board video and video card in my pci-e slot

Preferred Solution: runing on board video and video card in my pci-e slot

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: runing on board video and video card in my pci-e slot

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.

I just got a Asus A8N-SLI mother board and a pny 7800gt video card. 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. Everything seems to work fine when in the bottom slot but i am worried about the heat. I have my sound card close to that so theres not much flow between like their would be in the top slot. (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?
My other specs are:
1gb Corsair value select ram
Antec 450Watt SmartPower 2.0 PSU
AMD 64 3700


A:Video card wont work in top PCI Express slot on sli board

mmm... Check out the BIOS option for the SLI cause it could be that just one slot is enabled (the bottom on)...
about the heat issue... can you move the sound card to another slot?...

Im working on a pc that has a on-board video port, and for some reason when I turn the pc on the screen is black and I get a series of long beeps, my first reaction was to swap out the memory because I know that is a big one for pc's not being able to boot. So with new ram it still has the same result, so I tried to install a pci video card because this pc doestn have a ago slot. Also I cant get into the bios to disable this on board video port.

I installed a Evga GE force GT 650 video card in this computer in the PCI slot. Computer will not boot and there is no video. I aslo tried a Zotac video card that worked fine in my other HP computer, but also won't work in this one. Is there any settings that I am missing. Could the 180 watt power supply be to weak to power the card. The fan on the card turns on when the computer is started, but nothing else works. Is the any Bios settings that need to be changed?

Hi all,
I have a dell here with on board video that has failed (someone literally pulled the connector off of the motherboard). The system should be fine otherwise, therefore I was wondering if I could put in a old style PCI video card into one of the PCI slots (it does not have a video slot) and have it work. Or would the onboard video cause conflicts? I know that with some BIOS's you can turn off the onboard video, and this is usually a option if the motherboard has a video slot available (agp, PCI Express). Of course this motherboard does not and is a dell cheapo.

I am thinking it will probably work but thought I would ask before getting a card for it.


A:Can a dell use a pci video card if it has on board video?

Will a PCI video card work? Possibly!

Attached is a pic of a board where the Sub-D connector was pulled from the board, and when it was pulled it shorted out the board, and a PCI card would not work.

I have a AMD 7870 Dual slot video card on my Asus M5A99X-Evo Motherboard. It is installed in the first 16x slot...and I also have a PCI-e 1x XF-I Titanium Sound card. The problem I am having is that one of the 1x slots is covered by the video card, and the 2nd one is open, but right smack below the Video card. My Video card is the Sapphire 7870 GHz Edition non OC.. Attached is a picture of what I am trying to explain. My other question is: Will this cause issues since one of the GPU fans is semi covered? Its it recommended? Last question: If I move this to one of the 8x slots below on my motherboard, will it cause my 16x PCI-E slot to slow down? Thanks ahead of time for any help you can provide.

Computer Specs -

Asus M5A99x-Evo Motherboard (AM3+)
AMD FX 8350 8 Core (4Ghz)
Sapphire AMD Radeon 7870 GHz Edition (2GB)
8GB DDR3 1600 Kingston HyperX memory (2x 4GB)
500GB WD Black Edtion SATA HD
1TB WD Black Edtion SATA HD
Sound Blaster XF-I Titanium PCI-E 1x Sound Card
Thremaltake 750 80+ Bronze PS (Smart Series)

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.

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?

I just recently bought a new Nvidia 8500 GT card w/ 512 vid ram for my desktop PC. I purchased it to replace an older Nvidia 7300 GS card that I thought had burned out after a little over a year of use because one day the monitor just went black and I had to connect to the onboard GPU to see anything.

When I went to install the new card I followed the manufacturers installation instructions exactly. I uninstalled the old video drivers, removed the old card from the PCI express slot and installed the new one in it's place. When I turned the PC back on everything looked good. The new card had power to it because its cooling fan was running. I then installed the new video drivers and rebooted again. But when I connected the monitor to the card the monitor went black. I checked the display adapter settings under device manager, but the new card wasn't listed. All it showed was the onboard Nvidia 6100 card. I disabled the onboard card to see if it would then default to the 8500, but that didn't work.

When I called the card's tech support all they said is that either the card was bad or the PCI slot was bad and basically he couldn't help me with that. He also said to make sure my power supply was providing enough power to the card.

My suspicion is that the PCI-e slot might be bad because the PC isn't seeing either card when they are plugged in and yet the cooling fan on each card is working. Any suggestions or insight into this would be greatly app... Read more

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.

Hey guys, I've asked this question about 2 months ago but the topic was closed so I hope it's alright to start a new one. Anyway, I have a XFX 8600GT which I ordered online last March. The issue I'm having is that I don't know and couldn't take that card out. My CPU is this: http://letmeupgradeya.com/acer/AM1100-E1203A.htm

Since I brought my PC to future shop for them to install the video card for me, I still don't know how to do it myself. I watched a few tutorials but all of them seems to have a screw facing towards the slide of the CPU while mine don't. In other words, when I slide open the side of my CPU, I don't see a screw. I tried tugging the video card a bit but it won't budge, and I really couldn't think of how the video card could be intact when I can't see anything that's holding it that tightly on. Also. the PCi-E/PCI slots at the back gave me a lot of trouble as it was hard to take it off. I'm really new with these stuff, so I would appreciate if someone who has experience to teach me how to remove it safely without damaging it. Also, any suggestions regarding why a video card will display those green/purple lines will be greatly appreciated.

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?

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.

Can this motherboard / PC support a dual slot video card such as PNY GeForce GTX 1060 (http://www.pny.com/geforce-gtx-1060). I realize it uses one PCI-e slot which it has I was more worried about the space. There is a heat sink or some electronic componet south of the pci e which might get in the way (see below) . I already upgraded the power supply.Thanks 

A:Question on Dual slot video card

@dougyb, welcome to the forum. You can check the fit of the card by measuring from the Back I/O ports to the front of the case.  This will give you a good idea if there is enough space for the length.  Also, you can measure the width at the fins.  I don't believe that you will have any problems.  There is normally plenty of room.  I have never seen any reports that any of the parts on the motherboard interferred with the fit of a video card. Please click the Thumbs up + button if I have helped you and click Accept as Solution if your problem is solved.

Looking for information on a graphics problem
I have an MSI N460GTX Cyclone 1GB video card.
It has given problems in my computer since the computer was new. BSOD’s, artifacts, glitches etc. The card was returned three times, once by itself and twice in the entire computer.
The computers onboard video works perfectly but of course will not run Witcher II or Crysis II.
A temporary replacement video card (Radeon 5450) works perfectly but of course will not run the games.
I assumed a bad video card or possibly a conflict with the NVIDIA card and the motherboard (I’m grabbing at straws). The MB onboard video is AMI.
This morning I removed the video card (NVIDIA GeForce GTX 275) from my wife’s computer and put in the MSI N460GTX Cyclone card. It is working perfectly in her computer.
I put the NVIDIA GeForce GTX 275 in my computer and it works perfectly in my computer.
So now, the N460 apparently is good, the MB must not have a problem with an NVIDIA card. What could be causing the problem with that one card in my computer?
My PSU is much more than adequate for the 460 card. I have tried two different video drivers including the latest (280.26) and still the problems exist.

HDD: 2x 500gb seagate
PSU: Corsair hx520

what happened is when i inserted my external hdd(western digital 320gb) i got a blue screen, when i try to examine the said blue screen i thought it might be the gpu cause theres an ati word on it, so i just restarted and tried and then again i got the blue screen. when i restarted and tried putting my external hdd again my pc just turned off. when i try to power it on i got a beeping sound. i tried taking the vc out and letting the onboard gpu run. i successfully got to windows w/o any problem.. my question is could it be my vc or just a bad pcie slot? i cant test any of my components cause i dont have any spare nor a friend that has a pc, everyone of them is using a laptop.

A:Bad Video card or Mother board?

I have recently purchased a new video card, that didnt work because of my power supply, and it required that i uninstall my current video card (on board), so i did, but as i said, the card didnt work for certain reasons. Now im stuck for a while until i save up for the new card with no display device at all. How do you think i can go about reinstalling my on board card? Im pretty sure the pc didnt come w/ any software for it.

My original setup included an onboard videocard which copes fine with XP cannot cope with Windows 7 - apart from at the lowest resolution. I am not a gamer but would like advice on upgrading my video card. If I install a new card will I need to disable the old onboard card? If so how do I do this. What type of new card would be suitable foe Windows 7 - bearing in mind that I'm not a gamer, but enjoy watching videos, jpeg files etc. Any other issues I should be aware of? Thanks for any advice!
