Pci Single Board Computer

Does anyone know of any single board computers that can be used in pc pci or pci-x slot and either run its own instance of windows or linux or function as an added cpu in addition to the motherboard cpu?

I know most of these things are meant for specialized pci backplanes for industrial computers. I'm looking for something along the lines of the old sunpci cards. There were similar products for macs way back, starting with the 68k radius rockets and followed by amd and pentium boards that went in ppc systems. I'm looking for something p3 or newer just to play around with. And not looking for something that is going to require specialized programming to use.

Pci Express On Intel D915pgn Board

I recently bought an intel d915pgn motherboard and cannot use the pci-e x16 on it. I'm trying to use an ati x800 pro card which has tested good on another computer. The motherboard does not give any indication that the card is not working other than the blank monitor; it even boots into windows! I know it does, i hear the xp startup sound! I can only get video from the regular pci ports on this motherboard.

Using The Pci-e X16 Port On A G45 Board For Raid Controller

Will the x16 slot actually run at x16 (or at least x4) when i plug a non-video device into it and still use on-board video? Specifically, can i plug an areca 1220 or the supermicro 8-port into this:

And have it run full speed?

Working With Pci Express X16 Slot On Asus P5q Pro Turbo Board

How do i make my other pci express x16 slot to work on an asus p5q pro turbo board? I am attempting to move my bulky graphics card from the lower slot on my motherboard to the slot toward the middle for better airflow, and my computer will not boot with it in this slot. The bios freezes when i first start the computer and will not allow access to anything, but when the card is in the lower slot the computer runs fine except for overheating. I pulled the battery out of the motherboard and let it reset and that didnt fix anything. Does anyone have any ideas?

Computer Wont Turn On With A Pci Express Card

So one of my power supplies died recently and i just replaced it. Well the computer wont turn on with a pci express card in it. Ive tried 2 different cards and same thing. Is there something else i could be missing? As soon as i take the pci express card out everything turns on (case fans etc). Put it in it wont power on. Also the motherboard will give out beeps so possibly something else like cpu? My first inclination would be to change the mobo since thats the cheapest component but not sure.

Computer Wont Detect Pci Video Card

I recently tried to install a pci video card on a friends computer but when i re-booted the computer it was not detected. I dont have detailed specs on the computer but here are a few things:

He has a celeron cpu, diamond multimedia internal modem, his video card was manufactured by aopen, intel motherboard. If this makes a difference the computer is about 3-4 years old. The computer was givin to him from his former employer so i dont have the manuel to the motherboard to see if it has something to do with the bios settings. I tried to find his motherboard manual on-line but had no luck. I advised him to return the pci card and get a agp video card instead.

Connecting Scanner Having Pci Slot To Pc That Has Only Pci Express

My scanner connects through a pci slot. The desktop pc has only pci express. How to make them work?

Answer:- scanners can only work with usb cable, scsi, and parallel port etc. I thought the color-flex software took care of the scsi dos drivers which is needed for any window applications. Did you lose it?

You need a standard scsi interface card no doubt about this. The adaptec 2930 scsi card and cable is what works for your model. This scsi card will help you scan at top speed. That fits in the pci sloth no problem. Easy to install as well.

Pci-e And Pci And Graphics Cards On K8neo4-f

• one pci express x16 slot (supports pci express bus specification v1. 0a compliant)
• one pci express x4 slots (support pci express x2 only)
• one pci express x1 slots (support pci express bus specification v1. 0a compliant)
• four 32-bit v2. 3 master pci bus slots (support 3. 3v/5v pci bus interface). It says. The last point there in the list, is that the normal old kind of pci-slots? i.e. If i buy an old pci-graphics card, that's where i should put it?

If i but another pci-e will it work in the other pci-e slots? i.e 4x and 1x?

I'm also curious. There's not really a need for two graphics cards, is it? I mean, one runs the monitor, and the other one is just taking power?

I'm thinking about buying an old pci graphics card to run my computer while i'm waiting to have the 6600gt fixed. Just curious if there's anything i can do with the old card when i get the 6600gt back, except using it when i'm not playing games and want things quieter.

Pci Express To Pci Adapter

Why does this pci express to pci adapter cost so much?

Seems to be only one kind and they all cost $139. 95.

My motherboard has two pci slots and i have two pci cards. Problem is, there seems to not be enough bandwidth (or something) for both to run at the same time. One is a sound card and other is a capture card, when both are actively recording, sound starts to get static/popping/distorted and pc ends up freezing if i keep it going too long. So seems like the only fix would be move one of the cards to different bandwidth lane.

Soldering Chip On Pcb Board

My hard drive failed. Someone has suggested me to get a hold of same hard drive model and swapping pcb board on it. I tried but did not succeed. Then i was told that it was very difficult to find a perfect/exact match of pcb board so i need to replace firmware chip from my old drive to new drive's pcb board. I am currently trying that but i am having a crappy time soldering the firmware chip. My soldering skills are less than f^%$'d. I have no skillz whatsover. Can anyone help me solder this tiny chip onto a pcb board? I will send the board and chip and pay for shipping.

12gb Ram On X58 Board

Looking to build a x58 sys. (Digital illustration, graphic editing, files can get large. ). Probably with a mild core i7-920 overclock. (Silently noctua nh-u12p or thermalright ultra-120 cooled) don't want to sacrifice stability and keep the pc quiet. Budget isn't really set but wouldn't like to spend money inefficiently. ^^;


I won't be using sli but would like to have the option to use more than three x16 slot graphic cards for multi monitor purposes (currently using 4 screens)

The only ones that seem to fit my bill are the

Asus p6t6 ws revolution http://geizhals. At/eu/a388111.html (links are to an [austrian] german language price comparison site, tax included)

Or one of the financially rather tempting asrock offerings (realteck audio kinda puts me off, and can't find reliable information, but the slots are spaced nicely. )

http://geizhals. At/eu/a404212.html
http://geizhals. At/eu/a383922.html

Heavily leaning towards the asus. Maybe there are some boards i'm not aware of. Ram:

I'm kinda lost on what ram will give good bang for bug and run properly in 12gb configuration. Maybe a 12gb kit to be on the safe side:

http://geizhals. At/eu/?Cat=ramddr3&xf=253_12288 ( xms3 http://geizhals. At/eu/a391589.html?)
Or something else

http://geizhals. At/eu/?Cat=ramddr3;v=e;sort=artikel&xf=

The 6gb xms3 dominator look darn pretty but i doubt i'll use the potential ^^;.

Nvidia Card On A Crossfire Board

It's been a while since my last major upgrade and graphics technology seems to have moved on a bit! My current board supports agp and i don't really know much more than the basics about sli or crossfire. I've just bought a xpertvision 8500gt sonic which is sli and i want to get the ga-965p-dq6 gigabyte board and although it's pci-e it's also 'crossfire ready'. Will my new card work in this board? Will it work but not very well? I don't want to use two graphics cards anyway. If it won't work, or it will work but be cak, can anyone suggest an sli board that is equal in spec to the one from gigabyte?

Yes, it should support it, but it seems like it's a integrated graphics board, which means that it will work better at lower resolutions.

Dfi Lanparty Board And Heatsink Compatibility

I was wondering if anyone has had major issues with the dfi lanparty ut nf4 ultra-d and the thermalright xp-120. I went to thermalright's website and they say the heatsink blocks the first pci-e slot. My question is if you can just avoid the first slot.

Mother Board And Cpu Performance Issue (slow)

I recently replaced my mother board(old one was fried), bought new rams, and a new graphic card. But i did not get the results i expected, afterall i did spent a few hundred dollars. I would notice a dramatic slow down in fps after an hour or so gaming time in half life 2 doom 3 and some other games, with the medium graphic settings applied. The only way to fix this would be to restart the computer. ( I assure you i have no spyware or virus, scanned them like crazy, in safe mode too, also my cpu temperature is normal at 100c idle, and 104 when running games)

So *** off, i downloaded various utilities to find out why this is so, everest home edtion being one of them, i used the memory read bench mark test, it rated my p4 2533 mhz at 532 mb per sec, among p2 266 mhz and duron 850mhz, while a p4 2400 rated 2240 mb/s. When my computer has a fresh start, it rated 1400, again still much lower than normal computers. So you see the problem. Something with my bios? My setting? Or the motherboard i just got is no good? Here are some specs of my pc.

Am3 Board Support With 8gb Of 1600mhz Ddr3

Ok, thing is, i'm checking if there is a feasible upgrade system in the works for me, and i'm a bit out of it (penelope mk2 is working so well, i haven't looked at new stuff for a while). My requirements:am3 socket must support at least 8gb of 1600mhz ddr3 (at low latency). No slowdowns with all slots filled please. Must have firewire at least one 16x pcie slot, and at least one other pcie slot. More is better. At least one, but preferably not too many, pci slots (need an extra ata controller for my cd-drives)gigabit ethernet enough sata ports, 5+ preferable. Must be able to run both single disks and raid 1 mirrors at the same time (i currently have 2 mirrors and 3 separate disks, iirc) other wishes i don't need on board graphics, preferably not in fact. Floppy controller would be nice (raid install)serial ports are welcome, can be a motherboard connector. So, the closest i've come is the asus m4a79xtd evo, which lacks only the floppy controller. I've heard talk though that the board has a pretty crappy raid implementation. (Though if that's the only problem, i'll push an areca into one of the pcie slots). Does anyone have experience with that board. Another option are 790fx boards, but those only support 1600mhz ram with ocing, limiting further oc capabilities (and in some cases limiting the maximum amount of ram, which is a big no-no)

Any other suggestions?

Ps: chip will be a phenom ii 955, probably

Galaxy 9600gt Graphic Card Burn Marks On Board

My graphic cards back side of the board appears to have circular burn marks appearing. My galaxy 9600gt low profile graphics card seems to have what i initially thought was magnetized amounts of dust build up around soldering points on the back side of the board, but on closer inspection when i was preforming my casual system maintenance i blew all the dust away and tried a little dry cloth rub and the marks would not leave. Thus i believe these marks are either burn marks or like circuit seeping causing a decay in the surrounding area's of the board. But pretty much just asking if anyone thinks this could be a sign the the gpu is going to die shortly?

Additional information = gpu is 1 1/2 years old. Not overclocked. Yet the cpu/ram is overclocked and the spread spectrum voltage has not been touched. I have run the card quite alot though and it operates between 50-110 degrees for what my testing has seen. No problems caused yet, card is running fine.

Single Beep On One Boot

Alright. I was playing around in the bios and i selected a fsb setting of 166 and rebooted. Blank screen, no boot. Nothing. So, as in previous instances of this i cleared the cmos by the jumper on my soltek sl-75frn2 and held the insert key as i powered on. Nothing. No go. The cd-rom reads, but doesn't do anything else. The hdd light comes on for about 20 seconds and disapears. I heard a single beep on one boot, that is all. I have unseated the memory and videocard independently to see if i would get a beep but there were no such instances.

4 Monitors On A Single 5870

I'm looking to eyefinity 4 monitors (3 would be 1 group and extended on the fourth). My monitors don't have display ports, and so from what i read i would have to buy active adapters for the last two monitors. If i just buy another 5870 would i be able to use the dvi on the second card?

It seems it would be better to go ahead and get another card instead of spending 200$ on adapters. Is there something i'm missing or is this the only way?
