Can't get PCI-EX vid card to work.

Recommended Posts

Just installed a knew mbo(Ultra-d) and finally got it working the only problem is that my x1800gto (DVI monitor) won't work. I have to use a PCI card and an analogue monitor.

I had a similar problem with an AGP board a few years back. I found that the problem was that it was set to boot pci for graphics card. Perhaps yours got changed to something other than PEG1.

 

That's the only thing I can think of.

I had it set to PCI-EX before I switched cards but now I can't get into the bios(no post).

 

Does the card work in another system? And by that statement do you mean you had a different card in the system then switched it for the x1800? If that's the case, you may just want to try a cmos clear, it'll fix a lot of strange problems it seems.

The card was in this system before I just swapped the mbo. When it didn't work with the knew board I tried 2 other cards. 1 NvIDIA AND ONE ati. The nVidia worked but the ATI didn't. I have cleared the cmos 3 times still have the same problem.
