New graphics card + New Halo=Problem?

Q: New graphics card + New Halo=Problem?

Today I went on a 'splurge' if you will, and bought a Radeon 9200 and Halo on PC. I installed the graphics card and did a test run on UT2K3 and it ran just fine. I installed Halo and played for a bit, and it ran fine, but when I exited the game my computer crashed and restarted. I looked up some help and downloaded a new patch off microsoft.com but the problem still continues. I disabled 'Restart after System Failure' (or something along the lines of that) and went off to play some more Halo. I exited, and got the Windows XP Blue screen of death. It said it was ready to dump my physical memory. Holy crap. I rebooted my computer and everything is running fine but I'm too scared to play Halo again because my computer might freak out and explode or something. Anybody know what the problem is/how to fix it?

Comp Specs:
HP a220n
AMD Athlon 2800+ 2.1GHz CPU
512 MB Ram
Graphics Cards: GeForce4 integrated 64mb, updated to ATI RADEON 9200 128mb
Windows XP Home

Thanks in advance

Preferred Solution: New graphics card + New Halo=Problem?

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.)

Recently, I got a new graphics card for my computer (the card was Galaxy NVIDA GEForce 620). Well, after install some things changed that I do not like:
Some games act weird. In particular, Halo CE. Before my graphics card, this game ran well. Now, after the card, when I start the game, it remains at a screen w/ the word 'Halo' printed in the center, which is normal. But, instead of starting the game, it stays at this screen, only it starts flashing. This is starting to worry me. Not just the flashing, but afterwards, I couldn't use explorer. I'd click on explorer, and it wont run. Is there something wrong with the card, computer, or me?

*I am still new to the forums, and I don't know how to reply to what people say on my post, here. So if you reply to this, if you could please check back to see if i replied with another comment? Thankyou

Hello again,

As you mentioned you got a new card. Did you remove drivers of your old graphic card and then install the drivers for your new card?

If not, follow this.

1. Download Driver Sweeper. This small program will help you to remove left overs of your old driver.
2. Uninstall the drivers that you have now.
3. Reboot is Safe mode. Run Driver Sweeper. Select "AMD" or "Nvidia" (which ever card you had before this one). This will remove all the bits of old driver and make your PC clean.
4. Reboot in normal mode. Install the latest drivers for your card and reboot again.

Check and keep us posted

I'm having a problem others seem to encouter, but can't get it resolved. I bought a ATI Radeon 600X Pro 256MB/PCI-E card. I have an Emachine T6410 computer with built in ati xpress 200. Specs found herehttp://www.emachines.com/support/product_support.html?cat=desktop&subcat=T-Series&model=T6410)

My problem is after installing the card my computer doesn't recognize the hardware. As soon as I put the card in, my monitor will not work. The computer boots up and the monitor has power, but no picture. The card fan is working...i can hear it. I take the card out and it works fine.

Here is what I have tried:
-Called emachines for support and after disabling my onboard graphics, still doesn't work, they say call ATI
-Tried support from ATI....no help, they say its the computer
-Tried disabling in BIOS, but it doesn't offer a selection for that. It also does't have a PNP feature. Only first initial display..which I tried on PCIEX
-Plug monitor to both card, and onboard.
-Check MSI website and I do have updated BIOS

I can tell that the onboard graphics are disabled due to large scale print. I tried uninstalling the drivers, but when i turn it on it detects and installs the built in graphics. I just can't get the monitor to work whenever the card is inserted. If it would work I could manually install the hardware and drivers. I'm thinking I need a different BIOS that would let me use PNP and disable onboard graphi... Read more

A:Problem installing new graphics card on Emachine/onboard-graphics

An extreme option

As you do have the option of a working computer prior to installing the new card I would back up any files that are important to you..
Then, before I would pay someone else BIG bucks, I would put in the new card and try a fresh install of windows. Force it to recognise your new card. The drivers that Windows will pick should suffice until the install is done and you can then install the card specific drivers from your disk.
This is given ONLY as a choice. I am not sure this will solve your problem but IT IS something this cheap bas____ would try before paying someone else.

Good Luck and check back, maybe someone else will contribute a better idea.

Lately I have been having graphics problems in games. There are these " artifacts", wierd shapes, triangles, ect that appear and "shot" through my screen. it is hard to explain what it looks like, except that it is NOT normal.

It is hard to say when these appeared. I have recently got a different monitor. It is not new. It is a Dell CRT monitor. I replaced 1 CRT with another because I am cheap .

I have the latest drivers, I think, for my graphics card ( GeForce 5700 LE ). Not great , but not terrible. I play the games with either low or medium settings. I ran a benchmark test that was terrible.

Any ideas as to weather it is the card or monitor?

I've had the original Halo for a few months now, and up until a few days ago all was well.

Now, for some reason, I see white horizontal lines whenever I am in game and I move my view (especially on the underground levels). The lines stretch right across the screen and distort the picture. It's quite hard to describe, but it looks as if the picture is being slashed at with a giant knife.

This issue occurs only when I have the 'decals' settings set to on, but this option has previously given me no problems.

The only thing two things that have changed recently are my RAM being upgraded to 4 gigs from 2, and getting the latest graphics drivers from the nVidia web site (163.69) tosolve an issue with another game.

I know this isn't really a big issue, but the decals (the blood, bullet-holes and explosion scorch-marks) are quite an important part of the visual experience, so I was wondering if anyone could help me.

Thnks in advance. [Windows Vista 32-bit and 8800 GTS 320 Mb]

Okay, so I've just had to turn my graphics card off. This is because the problem that has plagued me for the better part of the year has gotten worse.

The problem? THIS:

This first started in the first Q of the year. During a game (HL2 GarrysMod), the graphics screwed up. The thing is, when I got back to desktop, everything worked (works) fine. Just the graphics are b*ggered royally. After an email exchange with the sellers of the graphics card (An Abit Radeon 9600SE), Dabs, I got them to take it back and "fix" it. By "fix", I meant that after using the "fixed" card for a while (a couple/few months) it happened again (around September) . So I asked them again, but the warranty had expired so no help there. So I simply didn't play any games. Apart from a small period of time in October (Where it worked for some reason, then started screwing up again), I haven't been able to play any 3D games. I then reasoned that it struggled on the 3D factor. So I started playing 2D games like CnC RA2 and Baldurs Gate. But then, recently, they started to screw up too. So I stopped playing games. But now tonight, the card started screwing up, on the desktop. So I disabled the card.

More information. While the card was away getting "fixed" my stepdad lent me a spare card of his (which he no longer has), an Nvidia 5200. When i put it in, the motherboard wouldn't recognise it. So we did everything; we reinstalled windows, we did the... Read more

You basically need a new graphics card with more memory to run that. I'm not sure if your laptop's graphics are upgradeable. Laptops tend to be specialized (i.e not upgradeable).

Hi there, im in need of some tips! I recently bought a new graphics card (nVIDIA GF-FX 5500 256MB AGP) so I could play a few games that I couldnt with my older card. I uninstalled the old one then installed the new one, and it all went fine....until I tried to run a game! On my old card I was able to play games and others would run even if the memory wasnt sufficient, but now on the new card it wont even run the games taht worked fine before, never mind the new games I bought it to run! The screen goes goes black and then the whole system freezes. Has anyone got any idea what it may be? I thought maybe onboard graphics but im not sure if my mother board (Biostar M7VKB) has that feature. Please can someone shed some light on what the heck is happening!

Okay, i ordered a new PSU to go with an ATI Radeon HD 4850 a few days ago. I get the parts today, put in the PSU, connect all the necessary wires, and start the coputer, and it works fine. I shut down, put in the card, and connect the 6-pin PCI-E connector, and the computer won't start, the blue LED's on the PSU come on for a second, then shuts off, and i have to unplug the PSU and wait a while before i can start my comp again (without the 6-pin connector plugged in. I think it may be the card, becuase the PSU works fine without the card, but i'm not sure.

What about DirectX? If that is in order too, then use Driver Cleaner Pro from here. Use the instructions on that same page to uninstall all traces of ur drivers completely. Then re-intall DirectX 9.0C plus the latest updates (June 2006 is the latest I think) and re-install ur drivers too. See if the problem still exists. What card do u have BTW?

Im new to this forum and i was wondering if sombody could help me out. On ASUS SmartDoctor it is showing a problem: "VGA's voltage is out of safe bound. Motherboard doesn't supply reliable 12.0 voltage. Please contact with its manufacturer for help." and now it is showing: "vga chipset isnt functioning well!! replacing with a new fan may be needed" I have not overclocked anything or really changed any settings. I tried changing everything to its 'defaults' both on Smart doctor and EasyTune6. I also tried uninstalling & reinstalling the nvidia drivers, but still no normal result. (as well as shutting down comp etc) I've had this new computer for about a month, and everything has shown up as being 'OK' up until now. Everything seems to work okay except for the error showing something critical. Is the error a mistake or have i got a serious problem, and is there anyway i can fix it? I am pretty good with computers but i havn't had experience in this area yet. Help would be apprieciated thanks.

Something bizarre happened on my laptop earlier. I was playing Football Manager 2011 and I noticed that the laptop was fully charged up, so I pulled the charger out to allow it to run off the battery. However, when I did this the screen completely died on me, as in it started to produce green pixels all over the place and basically gave the look of something which has water in it.

My only solution was to turn the laptop off, and after 10 minutes I turned it on again to find that it was fine. Loaded as normal (Possibly slightly slower due to having to start from a position of being turned off without clicking "Shut down".) and everything seemed to run fine. However, I loaded up Football Manager again and noticed the 2D match engine is running slower than it normally would, and can be somewhat laggy at times.

I'm just wondering, is there something wrong with my graphics card all of a sudden? The series of events that led to it don't really link up, but I can't really figure out any logical issue.

Hi. When it comes to computer hardware or programming issues, I'm the guy sat gibbering in the corner wearing the dunces hat. So any help would be appreciated from anyone who can spare the time.

Since I upgraded from Windows 7 to Windows 10, my AVS Video Editor programme keeps crashing with the message simply saying "AVS Video Editor has stopped responding" or sometimes I get a message box appearing multiple times saying something about a dll issue(?).

I'm also trying to run the DaVinci Resolve 12 Video Enhancement programme that I've recently installed but it tells me it cannot run as there is "No OpenCL Acceleration Hardware Detected!"

From the little I've been able to understand on the internet, am I right in thinking this is a Graphics Card issue? If so, can anyone tell me whether I can upgrade my graphics card and what I should upgrade it to? My current card is an Intel(R) G41 Express Chipset.

Many thanks


A:Is my graphics card the problem?

Hi Mark and welcome to Ten Forums!

Any new card you'll get will be far better then yours. Since you are doing some video editing you may look a bit over the cheapest cards, but not in the gaming area.

Both AMD and Nvidia in the range between 50 and 100 $ will do. Or look for something used on Ebay. Gamers sometimes sell their couple of years old graphic cards for cheap.

BTW, there are some G41 Express drivers available for Windows 10 - from Softpedia.

Ok, I just bought the radeon X700 and i followed all the instructions and installed the software with the drivers, programs, etc... But now, when i check my "device manager", it says...

"This device cannot find enough free resources that it can use. (Code 12)

If you want to use this device, you will need to disable one of the other devices on this system."

I don't know what "devices" it is talking about. There are only 2 things in the "display adapter" catagory in my device manager, Radeon X700 and Radeon X700 secondary. The "secondary" is working, but not the "primary".

And every time i try to run something that came on the software, it says...
"This program will only run if an ATI display driver is loaded, an ATI display driver is not currently detected on ure system."

I dont know why this is happening, Can someone please tell me how to get this working!!!

First off, I am not particularly computer savvy, and I appreciate any help you guys can offer.

When playing any 3D games on my computer, my graphics card will get ridiculously hot. I downloaded speedfan, and it says my GPU gets to about 120C; That is, right before it crashes.

I can usually play the games about 10 mins to an hour before it freezes, depending on how recently I have been playing before.

When the games freeze, the screen will freeze, I cannot move the mouse, and the audio will loop the last half second of sound over and over until I force shut down the computer and start over.

I noticed that the usual whirring on my computer was a little off, so I opened the case and looked at the GPU while a game was running. Sure enough the fan spends most of the time sitting still. It will sit, spin for less than a second, then sit again sporadically.

I took the card out, dissembled it the best I could, and cleaned a considerable amount of dust from off the wings of the fan itself with a Q-tip. There was no noticeable improvement, and speedfan still reads the same temperatures.

I have also tried about 5 different graphics drivers, again with no noticeable results.

It may also be worth noting that the driver I was using for a long time was said later to have had a fan speed error. Nvidia even had a warning on their drivers list for anyone using that driver to roll back.

My GPU is a NVIDIA GeForce 7300 GS (copied from dxdiag).

Thank you in advance for any help.

A:Graphics Card Fan Problem

That series is almost 5 years old, if that particular card is that old then it might be dying. If its new then its a faulty Graphics card in my opinion. If driver updates and cleaning it didn't cure it the only other thing you can do is add more case fans and position it so that it blows on the graphics card. But for the hastle involved with that it might be worth changing it for a new one.

I just bought a new Sapphire ATI Radeon 9600 and i need some help. Whenever i am running any game the graphics in the game always slow down to a horrible pace. This happens in ANY game, even simple games like the sims or in World of Warcraft. My processor is an Intel Celeron 2.00 ghz and i have 768 mb of RAM in my pc so i dont think those are the problems and i have downloaded all the current drivers for the card and i uninstalled the onboard graphics card on the motherboard. PLEASE HELP!

A:Problem with new graphics card, need help

Slowing down while gaming usually means CPU overheating. Clean the HSF of all dust and debris. You can dwnload Speedfan for TS dwnloads to monitor your CPU temps. You might also need to remove the HSF from the CPU and clean-off the old thermal pad/thermal compound and install a fresh layer of Artic Silver.

For a quick check, clean out the HSF as best as possible, leave the side off and put a table fan blowing in the case.

The problem I'm having is that my graphics card ( BFG 6800GSOC agp ) will not post ( Fans, HDD, CD Drive, PSU, etc all on, but noones home on screen ). My monitor just stays black. Now.. my motherboard is a K8S755A-6ELRS foxconn socket 754. Thing is.. I have an old graphics card ( 6200 AGP ) that works perfectly fine and boots up, and the weird thing is that the 6800GS worked just fine on my old mobo ( which had a damaged agp btw ) but wont boot up on this one.. ( my old mobo was a socket A ).

Things I've tried:
- Changing bios settings ( 128MB, 8X, 4X, fast writes, etc )
- Installing latest Nvidia drivers
- Alot of plugging in and out
- Changing power supplies ( 350W Antec, and some Xclio 450W with dual 12v )
- Checking that the cards connected to the PSU in the back
- Updating the BIOS

I'm stumped. Should I RMA the card and get a replacement? Or is there some magical thing that I havn't done yet that will make my comp post?

Thanks in advance

I've tried updating drivers, rolling back the driver, system restore, reseating the card, changing various settings, changing BIOS settings, flashing the BIOS... The only way to get the video to play normally is when I slide the Hardware Acceleration bar down to "Disable all DirectDraw and Direct3D Accerations" - which seems to remove the green lines, but then my game is all screwy.

I have no choice but to switch off from the wall as everything is frozen up! is it a problem with the card or is it something else? the thing is, it does this every two months or so and then after the first freeze it will do it again with a few days and then be fine for around another two months! anyone know what the cause of this could be?

I have installed the latest driver and updated directx, but when I run the game the graphics are so poor that I cannot even see menu options etc. It is very clumpy - like zooming in onto a bitmap. I know that it is a grpahics problem and am frustrated that the graphics card requirements were not adequately spelled out on the box. Any suggestions apart from buying a new card? My system is a P4 - 1.7GHz, 768 MB RDRAM, 32 MB Nvidia AGP.



A:NFS:MW graphics card problem again.

The minimum system requirements give a list of supported chipsets:

GeForce 2 (GTS, MX, Ultra/Ti)
GeForce 3 (Ti)
GeForce 4 (MX, Ti)
GeForce FX series
GeForce 6200, 6600, 6800, 7800

I'm afraid your card is not supported.

sounds like a loose connection. but on most laptops your only solution is to send it in as the graphics chip is intergrated and not something you can fix yourself

I have a dell inspiron 531, I have installed a 750 watt psu and a nvidia geforce 9800 GTX+ Superclocked edition and 4 gb of ram. I have used this rig for over a year now and the other day i took it aprat to clean the dust out and when i put it back together its ignoring my graphics card. It will only use the onboard video. My card does not show up in device manager and i have set in the BIOS to use the PCI-E slot before the onboard. I have tried reseating the card and the ram and unpluging all uneccesary things but i am having no such luck. I have also tried removing the battery to reset the CMOS and that still doesnt work. I am beffudled as to what happened all i did was take the card out and blow away the dust and then put it back in. i checked the contacts and the pci-e port for dust and debris but there is none. PLEASE HELP ME!!!

Dear All hi.
I have the following issues with my machine:
1. At times the screen goes black and stays black without rebooting, so I have to reboot the machine myself or the screen stays black indefinitely. At times the screen comes back with the following message (translating from the Greek):

"The screen driver NVIDIA Windows Kernel Mode Driver, Version 258.96 has stopped responding and was recovered successfully."

This usually happens when I try to move windows around on the desktop or when I scroll up/down.

2. Sometimes I get some horizontal lines before these crashes, as shown in the attached .jpg.

3. Another symptom before crashing is that the bottom bar with the icons ("working bar") and the top bars of a program start flickering very fast.
4. The thing is that the machine is more prone to these problems the larger the number of windows open on the screen and the faster I go from one operation to another.

I have a feeling that it is a hardware problem, as I have reinstalled the operating system (Windows 7).

Could you please advise? I would be immnesely indebted.

Hi. When it comes to computer hardware or programming issues, I'm the guy sat gibbering in the corner wearing the dunces hat. So any help would be appreciated from anyone who can spare the time.

Since I upgraded from Windows 7 to Windows 10, my AVS Video Editor programme keeps crashing with the message simply saying "AVS Video Editor has stopped responding" or sometimes I get a message box appearing multiple times saying something about a dll issue(?).

I'm also trying to run the DaVinci Resolve 12 Video Enhancement programme that I've recently installed but it tells me it cannot run as there is "No OpenCL Acceleration Hardware Detected!"

From the little I've been able to understand on the internet, am I right in thinking this is a Graphics Card issue? If so, can anyone tell me whether I can upgrade my graphics card and what I should upgrade it to? My current card is an Intel(R) G41 Express Chipset.

Many thanks


A:Is my graphics card the problem?

Hi Mark and welcome to Ten Forums!

Any new card you'll get will be far better then yours. Since you are doing some video editing you may look a bit over the cheapest cards, but not in the gaming area.

Both AMD and Nvidia in the range between 50 and 100 $ will do. Or look for something used on Ebay. Gamers sometimes sell their couple of years old graphic cards for cheap.

BTW, there are some G41 Express drivers available for Windows 10 - from Softpedia.

I am having trouble getting my graphics to work i have a NVIDIA GeForce 7900gs. I have a power supply for it it, is put into the DVI slot and fitted properly im also using a female VGA-male DVI adaptor as I don't have a DVI slot in the back of my monitor whenever i tunr on my computer my monitor dosen't coms up with anything but when i swap it over to my inbuilt graphics card it works straight away. So i tried it at my friends house and it working properly. Any suggestions?


A:Graphics Card problem

I assume you mean AGP or PCI-e slot, not DVI. As far as not working, you probably need to enable it in the BIOS. If you connect using the onboard and go into BIOs, there will be an option somewhere ( if you have the manual look there, otherwise its a case of looing through all the settings), to change the primary output, usually between onboard, PCI, and PCI-e or possibly AGP. If you change this to PCI-e, all should be well.
If you can find out what your mobo is, can have a look see and try and find where the setting is

Pot noodle only available in Wales, so you must be Welsh. Sorry about the rugby.
Find the makers site and download and install the latest set of drivers for your card. If it is an on-board card, forget it and get a "proper" one.

I just got myself a new graphics card to go with my newbuild, a Leadtek 6800 GT 256. Yesterday I tried to install the card, but after removing old driver, rebooting, and installing the new card, I get a lot of artifacts when I turn the pc on (mostly green dots all over the screen), and then it reboots after about 10-15 seconds. I also tried the card in an old Dell (280W ps), with the same result. I dont know if a not powerfull enough power supply will cause such a problem, or if it is just a bad card. The ps in my new box is supposed to be a 400W ps, but it is really lite, so I dont know for sure. It seems to be a crappy ps to me.
One thing i did notice is that the sound card and the graphics card share the same IRQ.
Any help would be much appriciated.

System specs:

MB: Chaintech spt800
RAM: Corsair vs512mb400 x2
CPU: Intel P4 3Ghz
Sound: Creative SB live
Case: Powmax w/ 400W ps
OS: WinXP Home SP2
