Tyan Tiger MPX (S2466) video card compatiblity

Archived from groups: alt.comp.periphs.videocards.nvidia (More info?)

I have a Tyan Tiger MPX (S2466) and cannot seem to get any new video
cards to work. So far I have tried the Geforce 6200 AGP 256, and the
Geforce FX 5500 256 PCI. Every time I put the card in the machine I
get the beep code saying there is a issue with the video card. I have
512 Mb of RAM, and 2 Athlon MP 2000+. The card I am currently using is
an ATI Rage 128 AGP 4X 32 Mb card. I really would like to have a 256
Mb card in the machine so if anyone could help me or give me any
suggestions I would appreciate it.

    Is there an extra 4 pin power connector on the new card?

    No I don’t think so, I’m actually pretty sure there isn’t.

    this definitely appears to be a power issue, ie not enough.
    remove 1 of the cpus, if it boots you need a bigger psu, if not then
    the board cannot supply enough power via the agp bus alone.
    fwiw, i found that a ti4200 128 was about the most power hungry card
    [without additional power supply] i could run stable on my s2460.

    This sounds like a power supply problem. What's the wattage of
    your power supply? If it's a cheap o, I would have the largest
    possible. It doesn't guarantee you'll have a good PSU, but if it's all
    you can afford, you may luck out. Myself, I use a ChiefMax 650W, and
    it seems to power my 6600GT on an Athlon XP 3000+, but I only use 1
    HDD, 1 FDD, and CDRW, so when I move to an Athlon 64 system, I might
    need a better PSU.

    I have a 450 watt power supply and card only requires 250 watts.

    yeah,plus the cpus require about 75watts each, the hdds require power,
    the optical drives require power, the other pci cards require power,
    usb & ps2 devices such as keyboard & mouse require power and the board
    itself requires power. you're way over.
    all of these will try to draw power at bootup, obviously its not
    happening. the reason you're getting a video error beep code is that
    its the video card that can't get enough power to initialise.
    you should really use a pc power & cooling 550watt plus [or similar
    quality brand] see the tyan website for psu recommendations.
    iirc, the agp port on the s2466 can only supply 110watts maximum so
    unless those cards have extra connectors to draw power direct from the
    psu then they won't work regardless of how much power you make
    available.

    can i change anything in the BIOS to give the agp slot any more
    wattage, I noticed there was an option to change the agp’s power in
    the chipset settings.

    You can adjust the voltage but if the power supply can't provide the juice
    it doesn't matter.

    You've basically got one of the most power hungry motherboards and one of
    the most power-hungry video boards around and the only way to deal with it
    is a mongo power supply. This is the kind of system that the Intel
    Cabrillo-C case with its triple-redundant 1200 watt power supply was
    intended to handle.
