II. Hardware Installation
NOTE: The ASUS AGP-V2740 series graphics card can only be installed in motherboards with an AGP slot.
II. Installation
Procedures
WARNING! Computer boards and components contain very delicate Integrated
Circuit (IC) chips. To protect the computer board and other components against
damage from static electricity, you must follow some precautions.
1. Make sure that you unplug your power supply when adding or removing
expansion cards or other system components. Failure to do so may cause
severe damage to both your motherboard and expansion cards.
2. Keep all components such as the host adapter in its antistatic bag until you
are ready to install it.
3. Use a grounded wrist strap before handling computer components. If you do
not have one, touch both of your hands to a safely grounded object or to a
metal object, such as the power supply case. Hold components by the edges
and try not to touch the IC chips, leads, or circuitry.
4. Place components on a grounded antistatic pad or on the bag that came with the
component whenever the components are separated from the system.

the slot first. Firmly but gently press the bus connector on the bottom of the card
down into the slot. Be sure the metal contacts on the bottom of the host adapter
are securely seated in the slot.
8. Anchor the board’s mounting bracket to the computer chassis using the screw
from the slot cover that you set aside previously.
9. Replace the cover on the system unit.
10. Connect your analog monitor’s 15-pin VGA connector to the card and fasten the
retaining screws (if any).

III. Windows 95 OSR2.0
Operating System Requirements
IMPORTANT! The ASUS AGP-V2740 series requires its own IRQ to work
normally. If you have problems during installation, please check your BIOS setting or motherboard jumpers to make sure that “VGA IRQ” has been enabled.
NOTE: The AGP-V2740 Series requires a Pentium II motherboard with an AGP slot.
Windows 95 OSR2.0
III. Windows 95
Requirements
Both Windows 95 and Windows 95 OSR2.0 support AGP cards, but to take advantage of all the AGP features, you must use Windows 95 OSR2.0 and install the USB
upgrade and then install the VGARTD driver for the corresponding chipset on your
motherboard. (see III. Windows 95 OSR2.0 “Install VGARTD”).
To install Win95 OSR2.0 with USB, you must have OSR2.0 installed already. Otherwise, first install OSR2.0 and then use the USB support update (you must use the
same update language of your Windows language). On the April 1997 MSDN Disc1 “Windows 95, SDKs, and Tools”, OSR2.0 is found in “\OSR2” while the USB
support update is found in “\OSR2\USBSUPP”. To determine the installed version
of the operating system, look in the registry at:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Version
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\VersionNumber
OSR2.0 with USB has:
Version “Windows 95” and VersionNumber “4.03.1212” or “4.03.1214”.
Windows 98
Only Windows 98 Beta3 or later supports full Direct3D and AGP features. If you
are not using Beta3 or later, you must upgrade your Windows before installing the
AGP display driver.
NOTE: Windows 98 includes VGARTD for the major chipsets but it is recommended that you install VGARTD from the AGP-V2740 Series CD to make sure
that you have the latest version of VGARTD.
NOTE: This Manual assumes that your CD-ROM disc drive is drive D: and that MS
Windows is in “c:\windows”. Replace either with the actual location, if necessary.

VII. Troubleshooting
Description
Recommended Action
After installation and restarting, Windows 95 informs me that the display
setting is still incorrect.
There may be a conflict between a previous and the
current display drivers. This is caused by the incomplete removal of the previous display driver. Try the
following steps to remove it:

My monitor is not capable
of high resolution or refresh rate.
It depends on the display characteristics of your monitor. Consult your monitor documentation for the proper
configuration.
DirectX or the other applications report no AGP
memory available.
There may be several possible reasons:
1. Windows 95 is not OSR2.0 or later.
2. DirectX version is not 5.0 or later.
3. You have not installed appropriate drivers for AGP
chipset. (e.g. VGARTD.VXD for Intel 440LX
which ASUS installation automatically installs)
4. Incorrect BIOS setting. BIOS must support at least
32MB for AGP aperture size.
