RE: ECS P4M800-M7
make sure you have loaded the via 4 in one driver and the vga driver both found here at ECS
http://www.ecs.com.tw/ECSWebSite/Products/ProductsDetail.aspx?detailid=531&DetailName=Driver&MenuID=7&LanID=0

The 4 in one driver loads up the agp port drivers without it the vga drivers does not always work 100%

RE: ECS P4M800-M7
i downloaded the 4in1 driver (the first file in the site you had given me) and the km400xp(the VGA driver, also listed first in the VGA drivers below).
first i run the "INSTMSIA", then the "SETUP.exe" both found in the downloaded 4in1 driver folder. After I can't find anymore executable file to install, i opened the other downloaded file, the vga driver(km400xp). I run the "SETUP.exe", then it says "Setup was unable to complete the installation. Check the progress log in your windows directory for more details". What will i do then?

RE: ECS P4M800-M7
hey dave, thank you very much! my problem is fixed now. i downloaded the p4m800p2k thing, the 14.3MB one. and i installed it and my DirectDraw now is enabled and i'am now able to run games. Hope you can help more people and more power to this site! My problem now is the "S3" icon appearing in my taskbar everytime my computer starts. When i right click it it shows display modes , S3Display , S3gamma Plus and etc.. Is there any way to hide it or dont run it? Or is it required to be run? My scheduled task is clear anyway. Thanks!

RE: ECS P4M800-M7
you should be able to remove that icon from display settings in control panel.
click start , control panel , display , advanced , s3
remove the tick from the box that says place icon in taskbar

on some early models this option was not there and you can remove it from using msconfig from run command startup tab but its not really hurting the pc in anyway its just a short cut to the video card settings.
if it don't bother you just leave it there.

RE: ECS P4M800-M7
really depends on if your using the onboard video card or a stand alone plug in card.
first you really need to find out what card you have and thats simple enough to do.

click here and download everest.
http://www.davesdrivers.com/forum/showthread.php?tid=656&pid=4024#pid4024

install and run that program.

with the program running look in the left hand list for display, click the little + next to it.
then click GPU

please post back with what everest tells you and what windows you are running.

RE: ECS P4M800-M7
ok so you are running the onboard via video.
it would fail if you have not loaded the correct motherboard drivers with the correct AGP support so i will list two sets of drivers that should be loaded in the order i post them.

via 4 in one driver. http://www.viaarena.com/Driver/VIA_HyperionPro_V524A.zip

restart pc when installed

s3/via Unichrome Pro http://www.viaarena.com/Driver/P4M800Pro-P4M800CE_220001z_XP_wIShld_logod.zip

again restart when installed

both of those drivers are winzip files and should be fully unpacked before you try installing them or that will make them fail as well

RE: ECS P4M800-M7
i need to check the game specs and find out what is the min you need to run that game.
onboard gfx is never any good at playing good games and that board only has a AGP port so its limited to older cards.

if you can please post the following information
click start, control panel , double click system icon

on the first screen you will see the cpu and memory amount listed.
please let me know what that tells you.
please do not email me, please use the forum to request driver support.

RE: ECS P4M800-M7
that game needs a big system in order to run.

for your self to run it you will need to get the best AGP card which was the nvidia 6800 ultra.
your cpu is a little below what the game needs as well being a 3 gig p4
the game wants 3.2 gig p4 , where i can't see that being a massive problem myself.

memory amount is 1 gig which you have or should i say you will have if you plug a AGP card in to the system.

now ebay is going to be your best chance of getting one of those cards now but please keep in mind those geforce 6800 ultra need two power connections from your psu.
the card alone draws 250watts at its peak.

that means you will have to take a good look at your psu as well.
anything below 600Watt is not going to run that card and your pc while you play that sort of game.


a weedy psu will give up the ghost the moment you plug that video card in to the system.

RE: ECS P4M800-M7
no they do them for the pc as well.
the ones i just checked on ebay ( uk ) are old stock they can't sell.
the only ones i can find are the 6800 GT which is not worth the money has it only had half the pipe lanes of the ultra.

the ultra version was the best card and they don't show up much on ebay as people with older machines tend to hang on to them but every now and then they show up

now what i can do for you is this.
My friend has a pc shop in the uk, i can phone him and ask if he has a geforce 6800 ultra , i can also find out how much he wants for it as well.
don't worry i will beat him down on price i know what his like , lol lol

if your not in the uk postage will be more then the card , so if your in say the usa look on the usa ebay for the card.

RE: ECS P4M800-M7
no problem this is the card your looking for.

http://cgi.ebay.com/GeForce-6800-6800u-ULTRA-OC-256-Ram-Ultra-AGP-4-8x_W0QQitemZ130340506465QQcmdZViewItemQQ​ptZPCC_Video_TV_Cards?hash=item1e58e64b6​1

thats the only one i can see on ebay in the usa thats for a pc.

now i will give youa tip with these cards as the fans are powerful on them.
if you look at that picture you will see the BFG plate that covers most of the heatsink, these tend to build up with dust with months of working.
when you get a card look at that plate you see it has very very small screws holding that name plate to the heatsink.
take a very small x head screwdriver and remove all the screws, don't worry the card won't fall to bits doing that just that upper cover will come off.
get a clean dry stiff paintbrush and clean out all the crap thats built up, then put the plate back on.

that will stop any possible problems with heat when playing top end games.

as these are now old cards the chances of getting a brand new one are low, so to make the best of second hand hardware i always advise a good clean up before you put anything inside your machine
