I've just bought an AMD 2200+ upgrade set with an ASRock k7vt4a pro motherboard. And on the AGP slot is a sticker which says: Please do NOT use a 3.3V AGP card on the AGP slot of this M/B. It may cause permanent damage.

Unfortunately, my video cards are AGP video cards. How can I find out what the voltage is for my cards? And why would you put an AGP slot on the motherboard if AGP cards shouldn't go in there?

Thanks in advance,

Emery

If you know the make and model number of the AGP video cards, try going to the manufacturer web page and see if you can find the voltage specifications there. If you are not sure of the make/model, run Belarc Advisor, it will tell you.

Thanks for your reply. I looked on the manufacturers website and it couldn't tell me what voltage my card is. I also can't run belarc advisor because I am not using the card in any other computers.

Thanks anyway.
