I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Hi,

I'm having trouble with the VIVO on my video card. (video-in/video-out) The video card is an Albatron FX 5900 TURBO. (256 MB DDR) On the back of the card there are three ports: one VGA, one DVI, and one VIVO. The VIVO port looks similar to an s-video connection, but instead is for a VIVO adapter. (an s-video cable will not fit because there isn't a little hole for the safety pin that's on an s-video cable) The adapter that plugs into the VIVO port has four connections on it: s-video in, s-video out, composite in and composite out.

I've sat down with this one on a few occasions, and I've never been able to get a signal out to my TV. I've tried using both s-video and composite. I'm running version 8.1.8.5 (the latest release -- 10/10/2005) of Albatron's nVidia driver.

I normally use dual displays, (2 CRT flat screens) but you can only have 2 displays in use at one time. When I try to get the TV display working I switch the displays in use to my primary display (CRT monitor) on VGA and secondary display (TV) on VIVO s-video out.

One issue, which I don't think should matter, is that the VIVO adapter I'm using didn't come with this card. I bought this card from a friend and he lost the original adapter, but gave me the VIVO adapter that came with his notebook. The adapter he gave me looks identical to the picture in the manual for this card. Would it make sense that these VIVO adapters are product specific and need the... Read more

You might want to test those sticks one at a time in Slot 1 before anything else. RAM problems can explain some of your other issues too.

Looking at some of your other posts I see you are running dual monitors also. This could be exposing a defect in your 9500GT that is triggering the TDRs. You should test with only one monitor attached to see if this is the case.

You are running lots of stuff on that box, so I would be as deliberate as possible in doing the diagnostic work.

I'm looking at the latest video cards that are out, i.e ATI X1600XT/X1800XT/X1900XT and Nvidia 7600GT/7900GT. I'll have an X2 and a ASUS SLI/Crossfire mobo for upgradability. I'm not a big gamer and want image quality so am leaning towards ATI. I'm into video/photo editing and HTPC/Multimedia, but want the card to last 3 or more years into Vista and what apps in my fields of interest become available for it. I know DX10 is coming and who knows what versions after that in this 3 year time span.

Should I get the cheap X1600XT/7600GT and wait till next year when Vista/DX10 are in service and the video cards are up to date to buy an expensive card if even then? I'm leaning this way but want varied opinion.

Will these cards not be able to take advantage of DX10+ when it comes? Will they run DX10+ at all or do I never apply that update?

My biggest goal is high quality/accurate image. But supporting all the Vista visual goodies and non-game apps to come is important. So which is it ATI or Nvidia? And which card for the winner?
Thanks

A:Do I need Ati drivers if I have Nvidia video card?

You don't need ATI drivers-they are for AMD/ATI graphics cards- uninstall them.
Use Driver Sweeper here:
http://downloads.guru3d.com/Guru3D---Driver-Sweeper-(Setup)-download-1655.html
in preference to "Add and Remove Programs" in the control panel. I would uninstall both the ATI and nVidia drivers and re-install the applicable nVidia driver to ensure you get an uncorrupted install.
The DirectX update should be fine.

You should only have the graphics driver from your graphics card vendor ( the manufacturer) i.e. Gigabyte, MSI, XFX, EVGA etc. If the card is an OEM product then download from here http://www.nvidia.com/Download/index.aspx?lang=en-us

FX5xxx branded cards (not OEM) may not run with the nVidia Forceware drivers so make sure you use the manufacturers recommended download if available.

A simple question guys and gals. I have an infinity for dell dimension 8100 and optiplex gx 400 towers. The boards are similar, vintage from the late 90's. They both use APG NVIDIA brand video cards, typicaly VGA only, although I have seen Svideo, and DVI, and even ANALOG line out connectors. How do I identify the model number of a given card to determine whether it would work in these boards. The NVIDIA part # eludes me. There are any printed #s on the card, both on labels, and in white ink. I do not see any I recognize as in ATI, GE FORCE, ect. I have several APG video cards in my pile and I need to identify them. Swapping cards is a slow way to test. In addition this process produces eveything from NO video to incorrect colors, to noise bars. Any info welcome. A list of compatible cards from N or others would also be welcome.

The best thing I can think is trying to look-up the serial number if there are still stickers on any of them, otherwise you'll have no choice but to swap them in your PC one at a time and see if you can ID them with GPU-Z.

Hello all!

I've seen a lot of posts about this online whilst I've been Googling over the past couple days, but most of the time the threads end without a solution or they're about *nix operating systems.

I got a new desktop and decided I'd use the old machine as a media server, where I could keep my iTunes library, stream Netflix movies, etc. The machine runs Windows Vista Ultimate 32, and has a GeForce 9500 GT with 2 DVI output slots and one S-Video output slot. My TV is an older 4:3 CRT TV with S-video in, and RCA yellow, red, and white inputs. I already have a cable that converts the headphone jack to RCA red and white, so audio works fine. Video is a different story.

If I turn off the computer while the S-Video is attached and then turn it back on, the BIOS displays on the TV, so I know the card and the S-Video jack are functional. But once Windows starts up, there's no display on the TV, like it's not getting a signal.

I downloaded the latest driver from NVIDIA, but I'm having no luck, not even in the NVIDIA control panel. It's like I can't convince the video card that something is plugged into the SVideo port and that it should start pushing video through there. No resolution change I have tried has made any difference - I've gone all the way down to 800X600 and still nothing.

While getting the S-Video to work properly would be the most preferred option, I'm open to any suggestion that could work - ie, is there... Read more

Hi folks,

Bad storm came through this morning. Afterwards when booting pc all i've gotten was 800 x 600 resolution with 16 color.

I've downloaded and updated the drivers for monitor and the Nvidia GEForce4 MX 440 video card.

No help.

Each time I try to change the display it forces me to restart pc to allow change. Previously I could always see the display change and choose whether I wanted to keep it or not without a restart. When I accept change and restart, computer hangs and monitor light goes to standby. Only way to recover is a ctr-alt-del and enter. PC restarts but comes right back to the huge 800 x 600 resolution.

Machine is also very, very slow in everything it does since this morning. I tried moving the monitor to the onboard video and rebooting, but then it never came on ... stayed in standby mode.

Is it possible for me to disable the video card while still plugged into it and be able to revert back to the onboard video just to test the card?

I haven't had a lot of experience with monitors and video cards. I'm not even positive they are the problem.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

A:Nvidia Video Card Fried?

G'day shesun4givn2...wow that is certainly a name!
I would suggest removing the power from the machine, then removing the video card and plugging the monitor back into the onboard video socket.
On re-power up it will (with luck) realise the onboard video is required and load the driver for it and produce an image.
You shouldn't need drivers at this point, hopefully you won't need to enter BIOS and make any changes.
See if you can get that up.
(It sounds like the video card may be crippled)
Lightning does not need to strike the prower lines to kill a machine, it is always worthwhile unplugging or fitting a surge protection device. (these work sometimes)

Hello everyone. I updated my drivers with 191.07. All went well and integrated perfectly except for one anomoly :- I like fairly big icons and text, and I always use a res. of 960 x 600 which is perfect for me. After installing these new drivers, I can't get 960 x 600 any longer. I can get down to 1024 x 768 which (for me) is too small. Below that is 800 x 600 which is a wee bit too large.

Does anyone know why I can't get 960? I've been all over Nvidia's website, but they craftily don't give "conact us" details. I wiped it out and did it again but the result was the same. I have a Forsa (Nvidia) GeForce 6600 card which has 256 megs of RAM. I have 1 GB of RAM and a P4 2.4 GHz CPU.

Set your required resolution, scan rate and color depth.

The little arrow at the bottom left will allow you to set scan timings if you require custom settings for those too. Just leave it on auto and click the Test button to test your custom resolution. If you are happy with it, you can save it as a regular resolution selection.

Although this guide is mainly based on video cards, it was impossible not to cover a bit of the other topics associated with upgrading a video card.

Nvidia GeForce and ATi Radeon Buyers Guide

What do you need a graphics card for? Word processing, internet browsing, gaming?

Many computers have built in (integrated) video cards. This means that when you plug your monitor into the VGA (video graphics array) slot, you're plugging it directly onto a port that is part of the motherboard. This slot is good enough to take you down the internet highway and view sites. Or to do some work on excel, word, or maybe just for sending emails. These are very simple tasks for a graphics "card".

What if you hunger to play the latest games on your PC? Well odds are, your onboard video wont do the job. This is most likely what brought you here.

You've heard that you need a video card and you probably looked through the thousands of listings offering you one, but what does everything mean? If anything, you're probably more confused now than when you started looking into buying a video card.

There are 2 main manufacturers you want to look for when buying a video card, ATi and Nvidia.

I can't seem to find an explanation anywhere. If I right click the desktop and click on Display Properties, the Intel control panel pops up, not the nVidia. There is however the option to open the nVidia control panel. Are the adapters switched depending on the demand of the application? Do they somehow work in conjunction with one another?

A:L7559 video, Intel + nVidia

It's the other way around.  The nVidia GPU is secondary;  the Intel is primary.  All video data passes through the Intel GPU on its way to the screen -- even if it's processed by the nVidia GPU.
The nVidia GPU is called into use when needed or when you select it on a per-application basis.  
There is no way to make the nVidia GPU primary - the Intel one is hardwired to that role.

im usually used to these sort of things like second nature, but i have NO CLUE at all in the world of graphics/video cards chips or whatever. ive spent the last 3 hours doing nothing at all trying to understand this...

My computer has an NVIDIA RIVA TNT2 model64 pro video board. i have no clue at all what this is, but i know its what i have. The problem is that i want to play the Sims 2 (and other games later on), but the graphics are all slow and choppy. going through troubleshooting, it says i need a new 'driver', or, the latest driver provided by the video card chipset.

i have no idea what to get, how to get them, in what order and would really like it if someone could tell me what i should do (in simple terms), or just explain it all to me.

thanks to anyone who helps.

I have a Asus P5B motherboard with the nVidia 650i chipset.

Anyone know if the mobo/chipset is compatible with ATI Video cards?
 

A:nVidia Chipset and ATI Video Card

1. please post in the correct forum - audio/video
2. video cards generally are not dependant on mobo chipsets. (there are a few exceptions.) If you have a slot, you should be able to use it with the right drivers. If you have integrated video you will need to turn it off in BIOS.

HelloI have an older HP p600o desktop.  it doesnt get used much and I am very careful not to let anyone install crap on it.  I am wanting to install an aftermarket NVIDIA video card and need to know how to disable the onboard or propritary video card.  My motherboard is an IPIEL LA-3  http://support.hp.com/us-en/document/c01746799 Computer is an HP P6000 system # AY576AA#ASBA      SER# MXU0140HK0 I installed the card and neither worked.  I am sure there is a jumper on the board that needs to be reconfigured to lock out the propritary video.   I am unable to locate it and I had no luck finding a manual for this board. help...... Larry

I just upgraded to W7 a few days ago, and have been getting semi-random BSODs that appear to be due to my graphics card. (dump files attached)

The error seems to happen when changing display modes. Once when viewing multiple IE windows (probably an Aero issue), but it consistently generates in Madden 04 (yeah, cutting edge, right?). Anyway, when it happens in Madden, it's always immediately after finishing a game situation and going to the results screen (full interactive 3D to video-ish style rendering). The frustrating part is that it doesn't happen every time that combo occurs, but if it pops, that's where it happens.

Asus CG5270
8 gb RAM
Intel Core 2 Quad Q8300 2.5GHz
Nvidia GeForce GT220

It looks like the Nvidia driver is the most likely culprit (and seems to appear in the forums where this issue comes up).

I started out with the 191.05 driver (got the errors), tried the 186.xx that came with the Asus W7 upgrade disk (got some weird visual artifacts on restart and immediately rolled back), and finally found the 195.55 beta drivers which seem to perform the best.

Updated the BIOS yesterday to the newest file from asus.com (along with chipset and audio drivers), which seemed to give stability for a few hours, and then the errors started up again. I don't know if there's any overclocking going on in the manufacturer BIOS file, but it seems more like an unhandled error in the graphics interface.

Any advice would be appreciated.

A:Video Related BSOD (Nvidia)

I've been getting frequent and repeated system freezes (in games and in Windows, BSODs and just plain FREEZEs), I've downloaded and installed every beta and official driver from nvidia, and I have to say, the GT220 is the hands down crappiest piece of hardware I've ever purchased.

If it can't run a five year old game at medium res without crashing, it shouldn't be marketed with anything more modern than a Pentium 2.

I accidentally changed something and I don't know what! I can't get the color to be 256 bit, only 16. I tried downloading the latest driver but it didn't work. When I try to change it to 256 color it says to check the display in the device manager, and that says that everything is working. Can you give me any help??? Thanks
 

A:nvidia geforce 256 video card

Your going to need to get the drivers reinstalled. If you still have the installation cd run it and load the drivers from there. If not download the latest from http://www.nvidia.com.
Last ditch, go to device manager, remove the card, reboot and reinstall.
