Hi Guys

Once again I need help

I just built a non dedicated desktop/server PIII using a Desktop board.

The CPU is 900 Mhz

I don't know the make of the board. it has a pheonix bios.

It came with a PCI display card, The board has a AGP port but none of the cards want to work in the AGP Slot . The model is ST-693AVA/E, please tell me what is the manufactorer of the board. All the AGP cards work in other boards. The Bios is set to boot from AGP first. But beeps when I put the AGP cards in.

Please help

Regards

Roger

The board appears to be a generic make.

Some call it Supertek ST-693AVA/E, while others refer to it as being part of eMachines, Compaq, or other systems.

Appears to AGP 2X, which may be the problem with your cards. Not all AGP cards are backwards compatible with earlier modes of AGP. See Compatibility at http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Accelerated_Graphics_Port AND http://www.ertyu.org/steven_nikkel/agpcompatibility.html

Down load Belarc Advisor and it will tell you every thing that on your system and who made it. serial numbers and lots more.

Hi

Thanks for the reply. This board also has a power problem as I have to start it with a screw driver and sometimes it starts with the powerbutton and not at all. I have to then plug it in, take the power button out. and it starts. It hangs sometimes. Please send me a bios update or a link to supertek homepage

Regards

Roger
