Hi! I need help with this motherboard: SEANIX KOOTENAY SEA440LX. Thanks a lot !
( This is a Pentium II 266mhz and 128mb ram. )
In my benchmark video card topic i have some problems with my Pentium II 266mhz.
Motherboard: SEANIX KOOTENAY SEA440LX
I have some questions. Thanks for help.
1. I can't find a bios update anywhere. I really want to update it. I google it for several minutes even a few hours. Let me know if you find it. Thanks a lot!
2. I tried several video cards on this motherboard. Several different pci and agp Geforce and others video cards and they all work. A pci Tnt2 works too. But i tried 5 differents Agp Tnt2 video cards ( 3 tnt2 and 2 tnt2 Vanta 16) and both of them dont work in any game, i tried 5 different games. They both froze in main menu of any game. ( Except for Moto Racer 1, it did load but no textutes in games, only black and grey color. ) Even Fraps froze sometime as soon has it opened. All computer froze, i have to power off the computer. I tried all of these nvidia drivers: 2.08, 3.68, 7.76, 8.05 and 45.23. Same problems with both drivers. Its like my motherboard is allergic to tnt2 video cards LoL! Its strange enough. All geforce video cards work perfectly and with any games. I even tried installed Intel chipset driver for 440LX chipset. I tried Agp aperture to 64mb and 32mb. I tried Direct 3D test in Directx and it works good. Im not sure if other bios options can really help. Thanks for help.
3. In the bios i have no option to switch between Agp and pci video card. So if i put 1 pci and 1 agp video card, only the pci video card will boot when i power on. In this strange bios the only display option i have is Mono, cga40, cga80, ega, vga. This is really a bad bios for a Pentium II LoL! Any idea to get both video cards work in the system ? ( I just want to switch between them. ) Thanks for help.
