Hi Guys
I have a problem with a card that wont fit the AGP or PCI ports. I am not sure what card it is but seeing as it has a monitor port I assume its a graphics card of some sort. I even tried it in my PCI express but no good. The slot seems to be in the wrong place for the AGP, PCI-E or PCI ports unless its turned around and then it may fit but of course it cannot be fitted to the mobo that way.
If I can work out how to attach an image I will post one but there are some letters and numbers on it which are sis 6326 agp sis 98.

Any suggestions what it may fit would be helpful
Thanks

Can you post an image of the card? Where did you find the video card in question? I've never seen an isa video card but I have seen isa modems and sound cards and even parelel port cards. But I've been in to computers since 98 so if it is a isa video card it wouldn't give you any good resulution and it will mostlikly will display a monocrome image.

That AGP slot is keyed for 1.5 volt cards only. An older 3 volt card will not fit it.

Is this your card? If it is it does look like a 3.3V AGP card. What is your motherboard make and model?

SiS 6326 AGP True Color Graphic Accelerator - 4MB, 4MB AGP Video Card, sis 4mb agp video card,VGAPV6326A/4SD, PKD0153,0004AF, With Installation Driver

@MPR:
Read off pic in post #2: 915P-A Rev 1.2 which makes it an ECS board.

Yup, that's a 3.3 volt AGP card. Not gonna fit.

Note in this pic, the interface end of the card would be to the right. Also the card designated 1.5 volt is actually a universal.

But isn't post #2 just an example presented by a responder and not the OPs actual board?

I guess I'm a little confused. Does the OP just want to know what a card they came across is or do they want advice on a video card compatible with their system?

Right. Sorry, my mistake.

My read is the OP wants to know why his video card (sis 6326?) will not fit the slots of his (as yet unidentified) motherboard.

Hi Guys.
Thanks for responding to my post. Especially you MPR, you got it spot on. That is exactly the card I have. Thanks also to Gcaven for confoirming it wont fit my newer ststem.
I am new to this computer stuff and I simply did not know that older computer components may have been different. Voltages obviously have changed hence the reason why the card would not fit the slot. It was too wide as well as the notch being in the wrong place.

So I think I will put it on ebay and see if there is anyone out there with an old system that wants it. Never know.

Thanks again for coming up trumps. I hope that one day I when I have gained a bit more knowledge I hope to be able to put something into this forum myself.

Thanks guys
Lizzie
