AGP video card, need maker name

By zlitocook ·
I have a video card with no clear maker name. It is a working pull from a computer that the person upgraded to a 256 card. I can not ask the person about it for a year or more. She is deployed in Iraq for a while.
The card has all kinds of s/n, p/n ECT; but I get nothing on searches, it maybe a proprietary card, from Dell.
CN-OUC996-69861-59K-0990 S/N 280538002273 P/N 102a6280101 made in china. Other markings rev a01 113-a62801-106, 0529 aspf01, VCI. It has both DVI and regular monitor out, and an s-video out. I can install the card and tell the bios that it has an AGP card but it will not recognize the card.
This is a white box with a Foxcon main board 3.1 GHz processor, 2 gigs of memory, XP, SP2 and all updates, it has an on board video card.

I am adding a little as to why I am doing this. After being in the computer field for awhile I have noticed that there is a big gap between the folks who just have computers and the people who need them. I am fixing older computers and giving them away for free. I give them to people who would never be able to get a computer other any other way. I have software and hardware given to me all the time, most of it is too old to use. But I can use allot of it.

The AGP Card may just be unsuitable for the M'Board

by OH Smeg In reply to Ok I am not new to comput ...

Have you looked at the M'Board manual to see what it actually supports?

If you have a ridge in the AGP slot toward the back of the case you have a 4 X AGP Slot. If it is at the other end of the AGP Socket you have an 8 X AGP Socket.

Normally the 8 X Sockets work with anything but if it's a 4X you need to carefully chose what Video Card you fit.

As for AGP Aperture Settings this is in BIOS in the size of RAM set aside for Video Rendering.

check voltage too

I remember reading that the power consumption is different, and you can toast your MB AND video card if you don't match this up.

This card was from a Dell and made for Dell only. I tried all of the drivers from them but none worked. I put a Gforce 128mb card in it for $28 bucks from Amazon and it now works great. I will save the card for another day.

Driver details and download source

by thorzstone In reply to Thanks

This is Dell's description of the card. It came from a Dell Dimension 4500.
The card is: 64MB GeForce4 MX 420 w/TV Out and it can be used in other systems and the Dell proprietary driver can be downloaded directly from Dell under the drivers for the above named model. I applaud your charitable work!
