I tried to install an ATI Radeon x1050 PCI Express X16 graphics card in my workstation but it's not being recognized. Here are my system specs:
  • Acer Power FE workstation running XP Professional Service Pack 2
  • 2 MB RAM
  • Existing Graphics Controller: Intel 82915G/GV/910GL Express Chipset
Device Manager shows the x16 PCI Express slot is functioning correctly.

I was advised to disable the existing graphics controller through the BIOS but the CMOS does not list the graphics controller as an option. A search on Acer documentation found nothing pertinent. Does anyone have any advise on how to troubleshoot this problem? I am trying to convert existing tapes from a Panasonic DVR to .wmv files using Abobe Premiere CS3. I had had hoped to use an S-Video connector.

I have to look into this a little more. Apparently with ACER there is a jumper on the motherboard you have to change

Apparently Acer has some issues with ATI
From Acer's site:
"Issue
No video displayed with some add-on PCI-Express video cards.
Solution

The APFe and AST670 desktops meet PCI Express (PCIe) standards.
However, ATi has determined that video cards that use some of their "older" Radeon video controllers have a conflict with the video controller on the APFe main board.
Some add-on PCIe video card are not recognized by the system.

NOTE.....If the add-on video card is not recognized, the video signal will still present on the external video port from the main board..

The following video cards have been identified to have a conflict with the APFe
Sapphire X300SE 128MB W/TV NTSC ATX 1024-8C45-0C-SA
Video cards with older Radeon X300SE ASICs
Sapphire X600PRO 128MB VGA+TVO+DVI ATX 1024-2C50-04-SA
Video cards with older X600pro ASICs

The following video cards have been tested and approved by Acer.
Some of the cards listed below are PAL format. Other cards may also be compatible.
