Question: I use a NVIDIA® 8800GT PCIE VGA card on VIA® chipset motherboard. But I got black screen on the monitor. How do I solve it?(11/5/2007) Answer: The NVIDIA® 8800GT PCIE VGA card is GEN2 mode VGA card. Unfortunately VIA® chipset does not support GEN2 mode VGA card. The only solution is to set 8800GT PCIE VGA card to GEN1 mode.
We have tested 8800GT PCIE VGA card. After flashing GEN1 mode BIOS for 8800GT, it works fine on VIA® chipset motherboard.
Please contact VGA card vender to get the VGA BIOS with GEN1 mode for your 8800GT PCIE VGA card.
