Old dell graphic card on asus motherboard

Hello,

I just bought a new ASUS motherboard: P7P55 LX .
Will any pci-express graphic card be usable with it?
I tried installing an old graphic card (not brand name written on it) that I unplugged from an old dell laptop.

Then screen stays black. Is there a reason why this couldn't be compatible with the motherboard?

Any help appreciated
thx

  2. welcome to the forums, newcomer

    how old is the dell grafix card? and can u post the pic of your card?
  3. Thanks for the welcome :)

    The card is (I think according to the serial number) a:
    ATI Radeon Model # 8964 Ver:110, MIC E-G012-04-2366 (B)
    It date back from 2004


    I think these are the specs:
    # ATI Radeon X600 Pro 128 MB PCI-Express Video Card, MSI Model: MS-8964, Gateway P/N: 103095, 6002870, 6002873 Bus Type: PCI-Express ×16
    # Memory: 128 MB DDR
    # Memory Interface: 128-bit
    # Memory Clock Speed: 275 MHz
    # Engine Clock Speed: 400 MHz
    # Pipelines: 4P
    # Pixel Fillrate: 1.3 Gpixels/sec
    # Geometry Rate: 6.4 M triangles
    # Power Specification: PCI Express standards
    # VGA Display Support: Yes
    # DVI Display Support: Yes
    # Dual Monitor Display: DVI-I/VGA
    # VYPrPb Out for HDTV: Yes
    # S-Video Out: Yes
    # Composite Out: Yes

    Here is the rest of the hardware:
    DDR3 2GB DDR1066 (PC3-8500) - KINGSTON [KVR1066D3N7/2G]
    Intel Dual Core I3-530 2.93GHz + Ventilator [ LGA1156 - 4MB - 32 nm ]
    SATA300 250GB - 7200 WESTERN Caviar SE (8 MB) [WD2500AAJS]
    ASUS P7P55 LX ( Intel P55 Express - Socket 1156 )
  4. hang on a minute! did you get display on your old rig, i'e was the hardware still working?

    If you'd like something cheap - get a ati 5770.

    btw wats your PSU?

    & 2)Have you installed your parts into your old rigs casing?
  5. Thanks for the answers.
    The problem is solved: the new motherboard i got wasn't working.
    It took quite a while to figure that out, but the vendor replaced it.

    Cheers,

  6. Just wanted to give a heads up, the card:

    E-G012-04-2366 (B)

    Is NOT an X600 series ATI card, but in fact is an X300 Series ATI card; and to be even more precise it is a Dell/Radeon X300 SE. It is a low end PCIe video card.

    I just thought someone might find this information helpful, if not now, for some poor future soul searching for an identification.

    I was that poor soul. Thankyou kindly, iTecUS.
  8. hi,
    I was looking for what this card was myself, as OPoster says, no markings, and found this site
    I can confirm this card is RADEON X300 but it says \X550 in display..advanced button
    it says 128 meg 400hz
    nothing about SE on my properties

    if you need the original it is a Dell dimension 8400 driver that confirmed works from here:
    http://www.dell.com/support/drivers/us/en/19
    (2006 drive with no windows updated one, i have not tried the ATI site but you could).
