Intel D865GLC M/Board with On-Board Extreme Graphics & Radeon 9200SE PCI Graphics card- Are they compatible?

I have put together a new system with the above 2 components running XP SP1. Strange thing is that the system refuses to see/find the Radeon PCI graphics card when the system reboots after the Radeon card is inserted , therfore disallowing me to install the Radeon drivers . (When I try to install the Radeon drivers manually, the installation exited with the message saying that there is no such graphics device). Before the system was shut down for inserting the Radeon graphics card, the Intel Extreme Graphics device was disabled in the device manager.

There is no option to disable the on-board extreme graphics chip sets in the BIOS, rather there is an option to choose 'AGP' or 'PCI' as primary, and of course, the 'PCI' option is chosen.

The system is running fine other than the fact that I cannot install the Radeon card. I have in fact tried out 2 same model Radeon PCI cards on the system, but got nowhere. The 2 Radeon cards work on my other Compaq machine, so they could not be faulty.

Have found fair bit of posting regarding this issue. CAN ANYONE CONFIRM THAT THE INTEL D865GLC MOTHERBOARD WITH ON-BOARD EXTREME GRAPHICS CHIP  IS  NOT  COMPATIBLE WITH THE ATI RADEON 9200SE PCI GRAPHICS CARD? OR any suggestion that would make the Radeon card work.

Thanks.

You could try disabeling your onboard gfx and rebooting with the monitor plugged into the radeon

This could work because the PC will be forced to use it.

This is a PCI gfx card.. not sure if it will work but it worked for my AGP Radeon9200

Hi, as I mentioned in the original post, the motherboard BIOS does not have option to disable the gfx, rather it has the option to choose 'AGP' or 'PCI' as primary.

I doubt if this PCI card will function in your system.

if you PCI as primary it goes to the OnBoard Graphics, if you set AGP as primary it will skip the OnBoard option and try AGP, when there is no AGP the system might look for an Adapter in one of other slots.

so I would try setting primary adapter as AGP.

If it does'nt help you will clear the CMOs and return to your previous settings.

Hi, on what basis you suggested that 'I doubt if this PCI card will function in your system'.

I have tried your suggestion in your second paragraph, it does not work.

Any more suggestion?

Thanks.

I have since changed the graphics card to an AGP version. There is a compatibility issue with the 865 chipset when the Radeon 9200se pci card is the ONLY card used in the system, though Powercolor has not openly admitted this. I now consider this issue closed.
