I just purchased an Albatron FX5200EP from Newegg and I'm having a problem with it that I cant figure out.

It claims to be 8X/4X AGP compatible but when I plug it into 2 different 4X AGP motherboards (Asus CUSL2 and Abit KG7-RAID) it wont display anything and I get the POST code for no video card found/video ram defective (1 long, 3 short beeps). When I plug it into an 8X AGP board (ASUS P4P800 Deluxe) all works fine.

I have put the original video cards back into the 2 machines and verified that the AGP rate is set to 4X in the BIOS, but still nothing when I install the 5200.

Ive sent an email to Albatron's US tech support, but I thought I would pose the question here also. Any help is greatly appreciated.

That's really unusual. Maybe there's an issue with those motherboards and the 5200. I know almost all cards thet are 8X AGP will also support 4X AGP. I guess your best bet is to contact the manufacturer of your 5200 and mention this to them. There may be an issue with the bios of the card or the card itself may not be compatible with 4X AGP.

Are the AGP in your mobo bios set to Auto or AGP x?

One thing I have found with my 5200 is that it wont let you lower the multiplier
like with my old GF4mx I could manually select 4x or 2x
I am on a KT400 chipset board, and when the 5200 is put in it FIXES the multiplier at 8X
