Thread: Graphics Card Or Motherboard Problem?

  1. #1
    I'm having trouble installing my AGP GeForce graphics card. I try to screw the card in but it won't place in firmly. Then I realised there's something on the motherboard that's holding me back (What's that little battery looking thing called on the motherboard?) I'm thinking of bending it down to see what happens or breaking the tip of my graphics card off to fit it in. I don't know would be worth it or to dangerous?

    ummmm no. u cant do that. i had the same problems installing my pci tv tuner. i jsut move the thing a bit to the right and place my card in. but becuz my card was a pci, if that didtn work i just have it in another slot. and are u sure u put it in agp, cuz i see a lot of mobo and dont see those near it. only near pci

    You mean the CMOS battery?

    Exactly what part of the battery module is preventing you from installing your AGP card?

    Do you think that you could give us your motherboard model number and company, so maybe we could take a look at pictures of it online to see for ourselves?

    I just tried bending the cmos battery now but it's to big to budge. Maybe the card itself was made to big.

    AMD K7 is not the motherboard brand and model number.

    Please give us more info.

    You could also tell us what AGP card it is.

    what model of card is it? some models ARE extremely large, so it&#39;s something you need to consider when you&#39;re choosing: is this card going to have an installation problem because of the motherboard&#39;s design?
