please please help

I can not find ANY useful information on this, so far all i know is apparently as of may ou could not use a PCI-E vid card on a k9vgm-v mobo for some reason, I HATE on board, i'd like to use my vid card. is there a hotfix, or manual fix that doesnt involve reinstalling and copying a beta driver file over?
(i get the BSOD when trying to boot. only with pci-e)

THANK YOU, sorry if this is the wrong forum

Always good to put the subject not "please help" in your post title
that way you'll get more attention.
in your case maybe:
"Video Card PCI-E Drivers"

Jeez - u r asking for trouble - three posts same subject

Not good form

sure, the first problem i had was after i burned the x64 ISO for windows 7 (the RC). i tried booting from it and it loaded the files and brought me to the startup logo, then BSOD'd, i forget the error code. I then tried just upgrading my vista ultimate, it bsod'd on the restart. Then i formatted the drive again and partitioned it. basically i tried everything.

Then i took out my nvidia geforce 7600GS, and plugged into my on board, and like a charm it installed and is working.

But this is a 64mb shared memory video card, and i'd really like to use my video card lol.

I read somewhere that allegedly you cant use a pci-e video card with my specific motherboard(lucky me), but i dont know if theres a fix for it or anything. Any advice is appreciated

You give no information as to what you have tried.

Have you installed the latest Via chipset drivers for your mainboard (available for download from MSI)? They support Vista X86/X64, so they probably (not certainly) will install on Win7.

(I don't currently have a system with a Via chipset. My notebook PC uses an AMD CPU and an nVidia chipset, so I installed the nVidia chipset drivers on it. I used the Vista package. It was not necessary to do that to complete the basic Win7 X86 installation, though. nVidia has also released Win7 drivers for my onboard 8200M G graphics. All of the other drivers were taken care of either during the Win7 installation or by Windows Update.)

The other option would be to try one of the leaked builds of Win7. 7232 is the latest X64 build that I've seen. (I haven't tried the 7260 X64 package, which is really a hacked version of a server OS.)

I hope that this helps.

Wasn't this just another thread? I swear I responded to this before?

yea, it worked fine on x64 vista ultimate, and BSOD on reboot installing 7100. people say that ts because of the driver codes, i'm getting 7201 now, but i still don't know if its fixed =/
