I have an F-10 box that will not post, it just keeps trying to start
intermittently. I have reduced the system to power supply, motherboard,
and video card with the same result. Changing the power supply does not
help. I do not have a spare video card to try but would like to try
one before I give up on the motherboard-processor.
Newegg has an inexpensive video board on sale but how do I tell if it is
compatible with this motherboard? This restriction has me stumped!
2.6.4 AGP PRO slot
This motherboard has an Accelerated Graphics Port (AGP) PRO slot
supports +1.5V AGP cards. When you buy an AGP card, make sure that
you ask for one with +1.5V specification. Note the notches on
golden fingers to ensure that they fit the AGP slot on your

The mother board is an ASUSP4B533-E with an Intel P-4 µprocessor with a
Zalman cooler. There is no video circuitry on the motherboard.
Presently it has an ATI "All-In-Wonder 9600 video card installed, an
elaborate thing with bells and whistles I will never use. I mainly need
to display text, little more.
The board on sale is described as:

(Minimum recommended power supply with +12 Volt current rating
of 18 Amp Amps.)
I have been agonizing over this problem for a month now. Video board
specifications don't talk about the voltage spec. I assume they are
talking about signal levels of 1.5 volts? But I don't know how to tell
if what I order will comply with the ASUS requirements.
I would appreciate some help on this. What do I look for in the board
spec's to get one that fits?
