Q: Is there a BIOS update that might fix my graphics card issue...

Hi,I have a Pavilion HPE h8-1330z with an Angelica2 motherboard, AMD FX-8120 CPU, 16GB RAM, and An2_705 BIOS. I recently upgraded the power supply to a 600W model to accomodate a replacement upgraded graphics card for my original ATI Radeon HD 7570.So far I have tried a Sapphire Nitro R7-360 (2GB GDDR5) and an XFX R7-360 (2GB GDDR5) and when I install either card, I get no video out to either monitor when I boot; no BIOS message, nothing. However, if I put the HD 7570 back in, it works perfectly. Tech Support for both companies have no idea what is going on.I highly doubt 2 cards from 2 different manufacturers and sources could be dead out of the box. I can only surmize that maybe a BIOS update might be requiired.If anyone has any ideas, I am listening.

Preferred Solution: Is there a BIOS update that might fix my graphics card issue...

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.)

A: Is there a BIOS update that might fix my graphics card issue...

Jenny, welcome to the forum. I believe you absolutely correct. The video cards are not dead out of the box. They simply require UEFI in the motherboard instead of a standard BIOS. HP didn't begin using UEFI until mid-October, 2012. There is no way to upgrade a standard BIOS to UEFI. I am surprised that Tech Support for both companies weren't aware of this situation. I suggest contacting EVGA Tech Support (1-888-881-3842) to see which of their cards will work with your motherboard. They have always been very helpful when I have contacted them for help.

Since updating to bios revision A0.18 when booting I get about 45 seconds of BIOS beeping error codes before the system finally boots. In addition my computer is no longer able to sleep. While I can use my computer still it is very inconvenient. I looked up the error codes for the beeps are it is related to the second graphics card I have installed. However things were fine before the update so I would like to roll back to a previous BIOS version. However the details in this BIOS udpate state you cannot go back to an earlier version. I have tried the install process for the previous BIOS with sp76788.exe to check and it tells me it is not compatible with my system. So the question is am I truly stuck with this BIOS version or is it in fact possibly to go back to an earlier version through a method such as one of the BIOS utilities in the boot process? I realized I have left out details on my graphics card (NVIDIA GeForce GT 520) and the actual number of bios error beeps but I am really just interested in going back to an earlier version if possible over troubleshooting this BIOS.

Hi all.. So these are two problems that can be related to each other. BIOS and graphics card. So I just bought a new graphics card which is the ZOTAC GTX 1050 (doesn't require extra power)for my HP Pro 3330 MT Desktop PC, 300 Watt PSU.Installed the card on my motherboard, made sure i inserted it well into my PCI EX 16, started the computer, heard beeps with about 30 seconds interval for each beep with the following screens: 1. The HP LogoThis logo takes so long.  And pressing "ESC" does nothing.  Then after 5 beeps it goes black, and another 5 or 6 beeps when it's black, I'm not sure.  2. The Windows Logo appeared, but with a wrong alignment, not on the center.The screen is cropped. You can see the loading circle is cropped.  3. The Windows 10 Login Screen, but messed up picture.I can login and can shut down using the ALT+F4 keyboard shortcut.  But the display is like that.First I thought it might be my monitor, or my HDMI to VGA converter.  So I tried using my TV directly with an HDMI cable, no converter, same problem.  Before I blame my video card, which I doubt nothing is wrong with it, I would like to do everything I can from the computer first. So I tried downloading BIOS update from here:HP Pro 3330 Microtower downloadsI chose:HP Compaq Business Desktop ROMPaq Firmware (ROM Family 17A0 NetClone) (International) 71.08 Rev.

You do need to go into BIOS and disable the onboard video card in order for one plugged into a PCI slot to work. That is most likely your problem.


There are diagnostic cards that you can plug in to test your motherboard such as the one at this site:

http://www.pc-diagnostics.com/pc_diagnostics_tools/flippost_isa_pci_bus.shtml

You also might call nearby computer stores to see if they have the equipment there and will run the diagnostic for you if you bring in your motherboard.

Today, I replaced the existing 300w power supply in my HP Envy 750-414 machine with a 600w power supply. I then installed a GeForce GTX 660 TI graphics card.After installation, I connected the monitor HDMI cable to the graphics card, and reconnected all other cables. I then tried to power up the PC. All it does is continuously make 3 long beeps followed by 3 short beeps. No display. PC will not start. I know the graphics card and power supply work; I used them in a previous machine. I then plugged the HDMI cable back into the original motherboard slot, and the PC started up with no issues.I then searched the HP forums for similar problems, and in an earlier post from another user, an HP expert had recommended updating the bios. So, I downloaded and installed the BIOS update from the HP website for my machine. After installing the BIOS update, my computer turned itself off. Now when I try to turn it on, every time, it makes 3 long beeps followed by 3 short beeps. The PC will not start at all. I tried plugging the HDMI cable back into the Graphics card, but same thing. The computer just beeps continuously, 3 long and then 3 short, over and over again.Please help!

So i use the Think Centre e73 with internal graphics. I have put an pci-x Nvidia card in it. Everything is working super until today. I noticed the bios upgrade and decided to update. now I won't get any output from pci-x. I assume it reverted back to using the internal Intel graphics, which wouldn't be a problem if I had the display port adapter. Is there anyway I can change this from a switch on the mobo?  I did try to reset settings by the clear cmos hoping that it would turn into some kind of autodetect to no avail. As of now it boots up but with a black screen. I have been searching the forum for the last hour trying to figure it out. I'm about ready to try anything from hammers to sorcery to sort this out.

Hello all! Please help me.

I purchased motherboard with the manufacturer number of MB.G0409.005 (MB.G0409.005 GATEWAY MOTHERBOARD DESKTOP BOARD SOCKET AM2) on 2/3/12. I had put it into my system and then proceeded to install upgrades from the Gateway website. I saw there was a BIOS update (file: 924G1P11.ROM) available so I tried to update my BIOS. Well, after updating my BIOS with the .ROM file that I had gotten from their website (http://support.gateway.com/us/en/pro...1&modelId=2283), but after that, the on board ATI graphics adapter is no longer working. I tried to contact Gateway with no luck and them telling me that they don't recommend updating the BIOS. I also tried to contact the place where I purchased the motherboard from and they said that they didn't have the original .ROM. The motherboard is also not listed on the Foxconn website either. I am running Windows 7 x64 Build 7601 and I have also tried using a Ubuntu 12.04 LTS live USB and that did not work as well. As far as I can tell, the BIOS will not even recognize it. I am now currently using a NVIDIA GeForce GT 220 graphics card that is plugged into the 16x PCI-E slot. I have found modified .ROM files that someone had done for this motherboard, but I don't want to risk it. And every forum and post I've come across has dead links to ones that someone has made a copy of the .ROM file and uploaded from their motherboard.

Hello forum,
So I just updated my Nvidea graphics card, and for some reason after restarting my laptop, in order to install these files to the system, the "System Thread Exception Not Handled" Blue screen error flashed on my screen, and later redirected me to an automatic repair screen, which attempted to fix this issue.
I ended up restarting the laptop on safe mode, uninstall my Nvidea graphics card and completely reinstall it from scratch.
But for some reason it keeps giving me the same error each time I restart my laptop.
After some research online, apparently there's an issue with Avast and Nvidea?
You will find attached the SF Diagnostic Tool grab all option files needed to view the issue at hand.
Any help would greatly be helpful.
Many are saying that I've not been installing the corrent drivers, but that's not possible, as it's directly from the MSI website (GT70 0NE) linked to the official Nvidea website, saying that the driver includes my graphics card (680M).
While other people are saying that maybe Avast is causing some issue towards the graphics card?
I have the Avast 2014 Professional Antivirus.

Hi,

my friend flashed his VTX HD Radeon 6950 to try and get it to a 6970 and he failed. He then called me up and i fixed it by flashing it with the original bios.... However recently he contacted me again and his card just stopped working whilst he was playing a game. I checked and the computer still recognized it in device manager and it seemed fine i did also check with GPU- Z and in the memory sectors it said unknown and the same for the shaders the Clock was at 0. I assumed the card was Bricked and began searching for the correct BIOS for it again to make sure it isnt the BIOS again.

NOTE: I am getting onto his computer with a Geforce 310 that is my spare card

i found a bios for the VTX it was called VTX3D which i assumed is made by the same people. using ATIFlash i tried flashing it but with no success either sometimes it would say subsystem is is incorrect or that the VBIOS is already installed. We have tried many options and do not know what to try next.

Was this a private party seller? Or was it from a Reputable Reseller. Either way if you recieved a component that did not match the advertised auction item, you need to contact ebay. If from a professional shop or supplier, ebay may help you recoup your loss or obtain the advertised item. If from a private seller, it may only get as far as giving the seller a bad rating or banned from selling on ebay.

After having problems with my pc (processor speed) i was advised to update the bios. Since doing this i can no longer see the 2nd graphics card, can anyone help please?

Previously i had the following set up:

Windows Vista 64 PC with 3 monitors on 2 graphics cards (GeForce 8200 & GeForce 9500GT)
Motherboard- ASRock K10N78-1394
Chipset- GeForce 8200
Bios- American Megatrends P1.20
CPU- AMD Phenom II X4 955

My PC has been sluggish since i bought it and crashes quite often, which i put down to Vista so I decided to upgrade to Windows 7 but discovered that the CPU was only running at 800MHz rather than the advertised 3GHz. I was told this is a bios issue and to update the bios to AMI P1.60

After doing so i can no longer use the 3rd screen and i cannot see the 2nd graphics card (GeForce 8200)

The system shows that the motherboard chipset is now nForce 720a and the graphics card as GeForce 9500GT (no sign of the 8200)

The CPU is now faster though!

Can anyone advise how to get the 2nd graphics card (3rd screen) back?

Many thanks

Hello and welcome to Techspot.

You could try reading your mobo manual.

If you don`t have one you may be able to download one from your mobo manufacturers web site.

Failing that during bootup try pressing either the F2 or delete keys to get into bios.

Then just search around to find your onboard graphics disable it then save and exit.

A:Graphics Card Causes BIOS Problems

Need more information about your motherboard brand/model and BIOS.

Why don't you put the card in, but still connect your monitor to the onboard graphics VGA/DVI/HDMI connector from the motherboard? That way your BIOS will see the external HD4650, but will also put out what you say is still coming out through the onboard graphics chip.

If you have onboard graphics, and you're trying to go to an external video card of the HD4650, isn't there an "auto" setting in the BIOS? I would think that should detect the presence of an external video card and use it over the onboard graphics.

Anyway, for the moment I'd leave the monitor connected to the onboard connector if you say connecting it to the HD4650 isn't working. Then you can make your BIOS adjustment, and then re-connect and reboot and you should be there. Yes?

Don't know if this is best put here, or in another section, but here goes. Got a new graphics card, AMD Radeon 8490, and tried to install, but it will not work. I could get back to my old integrated video card when I unseated the new card and everything worked fine. I have a Windows 7 operating system on an HP Pavilion 7p-1110, 6 MB Ram, 250W power supply.

I've been told that I might just have a compatibility issue or not enough watts in my power supply, but thought you guys might have more expertise.

I've tried some things, like changing the BIOS jumper settings to clear the BIOS, then reinstalling, it did not work.

The most curious thing, at least to me, is that when I plug in the new graphics card in the appropriate slot, then try to turn the power on, the power turns on and the fans start to whirl, including the graphics card fan, but there is no attempt to engage the hard drive and operating system. No clicks or light flashing to indicate they are working toward getting Windows 7 to boot and no way to get into the BIOS to start in Safe Mode.

Any clues to what's going on here? Do you think it's just a compatibility issue, lack of power watts, as others have said, and not going to be able to work for me?

Any assistance you have would be appreciated.

Thanks,

Hello,I was wondering if you could disable your Integrated Graphics from BIOS. I have issues where my BIOS don't have any option to disable it. The reason I wanted to disable it because of my Integrated Graphics won't let me update to the latest driver and get the dX12 advantage. I have AMD APU A10-5745M with Radeon HD 8610G and Radeon R7 M260. Already contact with AMD they said there's no future update for HD8610G and they move it to legacy version drivers, but R7 M260 needs the new driver which is the Crimson Driver so it can take the advantage of dX12. They said I need to disable the Integrated graphics so I only used the Dedicated one, that's the reason I'm asking this. I already updated my BIOS driver to the latest one and still theres no option to disable it. Is there's any solution for this from HP?

Hey, having some display problems.

I built my tower a few years ago, so everything is custom. Ill list the specs that I know at the bottom.

I got a PCI-e graphics card awhile back and installed it into my computer. It has a S-Video and DVI ports in the back of it. S-Video ran to my TV while the DVI ran to my monitor. Everything ran fine until it stopped recognizing my monitor. After awhile it started to again, then finally stopped.

I was trying to fix it tonight. Rearranging cables, unplugging and replugging the card never helped. I was gonna get my onboard VGA to recognize my monitor and reinstall the graphics card. I ended up going to BIOS and unselecting "PCI-e" (my graphics card) for my display. OOPS!

Now I get no picture - on boot up or while its on. Both screens are pitch black. The computer boots on, I hear windows load, but I can't view anything. I can't get back to my BIOS to enable PCI-e again. Ive unplugged and replugged the graphics card, hoping that made a difference, but nothing. Any suggestions? Thanks in advance!

I uninstalled my current graphics drivers prior to putting it in. I've tried reseating it 3 times. Nothing I've been scouring forums for help, seems that updating the BIOS and switching to Legacy solves problems. Trouble is, my BIOS is already up to date at '7.12 Rev. A' and as far as I can tell it's already in Legacy mode but I am extremely hesistant to tamper with it. The BIOS hasn't recieved a new version to download since Feb 6, 2012, that might explain a lot. What I am guessing here, especially since my old card still works, is that my motherboard simply wont support this much of an upgrade, I would be grateful if someone could tell me why. I would buy a new PC if I didnt loathe Windows 10 so much, as it stand I'd like to hang on to this one...

A:New Graphics Card Won't Work and BIOS is Up to Date.

Hi, You nee a HP version 8 BIOS or higher to get the NVIDIA GTX 1xxx series graphics cards to work normally in your PC.  Unfortunately, HP only has a version 7 BIOS available for the "Chicago" motherboard. Try moving up the existing NVIDIA GTX 6xx legacy line the 660, 670 or 680. The GTX 680 is finicky in some PCs and the older legacy graphics cards are power hungry. Be sure to match the replacement graphics card with the recommended minimum power supply as stated by the graphics card manufacturer. ----------------------------- The newer UEFI enabled graphics card such as the NIVIDA GTX 1xxx series expect a "proper handshake" from UEFI enabled PC BIOS. If that doesn't occur then you boot process will stall at the HP splash screen or earlier for that matter.

I have read or observed all the information on installing the graphics card. Instructions say to change the bios to disregard the internal video. I do not know how to get into the bios and what to do when I get there. Are there step-by-step instructions?

Hey everyone, I'm a long time gamer, short time poster.

This is how the story of my dying PC goes...

I had :

e660
p5b-e
DVD/CD Combo
2 x 500 gig Sata HDD (1 WD and 1 Samsung)
550W Flexiglow PSU
2 x 1 gig Corsaire ram
NVIDIA 8800GTS

The cores are only ever pushed to 50degrees max, the PC was overclocked to 200 x 6/9
Then things went bad...

Playing Left 4 Dead, I recieved a BSOD, I tried 2 more times (being an idiot) and continued to receive them. By this time, I recovered a minidump of what had happened to discover an "infinite loop" coming from the graphics card. Meanwhile, I was seeing a few small artifacts on my windows startmenu. (right clicking revealed jumbled images)

Turning off my PC I went to bed. Waking up... I found Artifacts all over my Bios screen and Windows boot screen, when XP loaded (after typing in the login and password) the XP froze up completely with Artifacts. After this, it happened every time (of the 3 times I risked trying it)

So...

I went and bought a 750Watt Thermaltek Toughpower Qfan and an ATI R4850 (2D512)

I plonked them in (knowing the old PSU was still functioning [as it's bios readings were still really balanced]) and now... my problems got worse! (or equally problematic)

With the new card in I see the p5b-e splash screen at startup, followed by a bios beep and the bios scrolling, recognising my HDD's / DVD / USB.

Then... a black screen.

WHEN I press Del to get into the bios, I cant. Likewise chosing a bo... Read more

I have purchased a MSI AMD Radeon R7 265 Overclocked 2GB Video Card, and have gone to install it on my MSI AMD A88XM-E35 FM2+ Micro-ATX Motherboard, however when i do this it corrupts my bios and nothing is displayed on my monitor, And my CPU fan speeds up and speeds down every 1 second, I've taken out the mother board battery 3 times and drained it, and removed the graphics card and it goes back to working fine, I'm not sure if it has something to do with the fact that i'm running a AMD A10-7850K 4-Core Socket FM2+ 3.7GHz APU Processor, which has an on board graphics card. My other tech friend said it might have something to do with the graphics actually not working, but I only recieved it on friday. please help!

Hi, Yesterday I updated to the newest BIOS-Version (2.29). I also installed the newest Graphics Driver (Intel 10.18.10.3910). After the BIOS-Update I changed 2 settings in the BIOS:(1) I increased the RAM of the Graphics-Card from 256MB to 512MB(2) I changed the Boot-Mode from "Both" to "UEFI Only" A few hours later something weird happened: The fan suddenly started to work at a medium level (not maximum) and didn't stop even after 1 hour the fan didn't stop. I restarted the OS but the fan still didn't stop. Then I closed the LID (so the Laptop does "Suspend to RAM") and after I opened the LID the fan did stop. The same thing happened again today.So, what is this? I'm not sure if this has something to do with the BIOS/Graphics Update or maybe something in my T440s is broken? I'm running Windows 7 x64, installed in UEFI-Mode.

A:T440s Fan-Problem since Bios/Graphics Update

I noticed that lately my T440s fan has been running constantly while my T440s is on (i7 with 8gigs Ram). Even if I close all applications and its still going. I ran mcafee virus scan an hr ago with the latest virus definitions and it found no viruses or malware. Was not like that before. Seems it started after the latest windows 8.1 update. what gives?

Hi all. Levenovo solutions center recently installed the latest version of the bios v1.89 (25 Sep 2017) on my L440 (Win7Pro, 64bit). Right since the reboot after the bios update, the Intel graphics driver does not work anymore. I had to uninstall it in Windows Safe Mode and I am now running my laptop with the standard windows driver, having no access to the Sub-D interface nor to the Display Port. The only thing I can do is to enter the bios setup and switch between the notebook display and the external sub-d interface as primary screen. This enables me at least to connect a larger screen to the sub-d connector for working, but then I cannot use the notebook screen. I tried to re-install older versions of the bios. But this fails with a 'incompatibility' message.  I also re-set windows to a previous setup point (to before the lenovo solutions center update action). But this does not help, indicating that it is really a bios issue (which cannot be made undone). Please, can you give me advice on how to install an older version of the bios? This seems to be the only chance to get my Intel graphics working again. Cheers,Patric.

I have an ATI Radeon 9700 pro. Every so often, the screen will break up, with lines going up and down, and you can barely make out the screen. When this does happen, it usually starts when I'm playing a game, and it will cause the pc to freeze, or at least appear to freeze. I'll try restarting the pc to solve it, but it will continue, I'll just leave the pc off for awhile and it goes away. I've bought it brand new about 3 years ago, and it started this sometime last year, at first I thought it was the monitor cause its pretty old, but I'm starting to think its the graphics card, maybe someone recognises the symptoms or knows what it is.

Hi,

Recently my friend has complained that his graphics card appears to be acting strange. He recently began playing World of Warcraft again and at times gets odd graphics glitches. Sometimes the display will turn weird colors and / or the display will automatically shut down. Could this be an overheating or dying video card, or do the settings need to be changed? The video card is a nVidia Geforce 6600GT. Any thoughts on this?

Thanks for the help!

Regards,
Ian

Hello, My name is Jon. Im new to these forums and they looked like a good place to ask my question. Ok, here is the deal. My dell XPS 700 came with 2 Dual Nvidia 7900's 256mb... I swaped both out for 1 ATI Raedeon X 1950 XTX. I reformated before i did so. So windows found the ATI card but it couldnt get drivers for it. So I put the ATI cd in and installed the catalyst drivers and software. Everything is working great. But, windows is still finding Nvidia hardware. Like for instance: Nvidia SMBus and Nvidia Media Shield.. These used to be installed before the reformat. Im pretty sure they were just used for the Nvidia cards so I wont need to install them right? I mean they would probably not help or actually cause harm if I install them. For now, I have not installed them and I simply disabled them in the device manager. Please tell me if i need to install them or not. Im pretty sure I wont cause I dont have the nvidia cards anymore. Tell me if im right to keep them disabled. Thanks for helping me! This already looks like a great forum.

If the cards are taken out-then you can disable them and all should be fine.

I've been having some performance issues with my graphics card, NVIDIA GeForce 9400GT, ever since installing Windows 7. When watching movies/shows on certain sites, specifically Hulu.com, and enlarging the video to fullscreen, the videos become choppy.

I was using XP Pro before making the switch and I never had any issues like this before. I'm going out on a limb and thinking that my current card is just not up to par for Windows 7 (especially since that Windows experience rating system has my graphics capability pretty low) and I need to upgrade...again.

Basically, I'm asking for suggestions on what I should be looking at. I'm not a gamer, the most I need out of my video card is to be able to watch movies and videos on my HDTV.

Help?

If you haven't installed the driver for the card, it'l cause all those things to happen.

The radeon hd 4670 is a pretty solid card for the price. It doesn't use that much power so there's no worry about upgrading your psu.

I just built a new work computer (MB: TA785G3, Graphics card: HD 4670) and I cannot get the video card to work. Now the MB does have a onboard card which might be causing the issue. I have tried disabling it both in windows and the bios. In the bios I think I am doing it right (I don't see and specific how to in the mb manual). I am going to chipset, northbridge config, internal graphics config, and then internal graphics mode I switch from UMA to disable. When I do disable this in bios and reset my MB does a number of beeps which translate to a display memory error. I don't know if in device manager under display adaptors if I should be seeing the card anyway, but I only see the onboard card listed. Also the card is getting power or at least the fan on it is. Any help is greatly appreciated.

My graphics card is a Nvidia 9800GT

using dual monitors

just an hour ago suddnely fuzzy lines appeared on both monitors and computer froze

I restarted, and only one monitor works now (Am guessing because its off the native video driver). The monitor has fuzzy lines on it as it boots, then as windows is booting it has blocks of red/blue vertical lines going across the screen.

when I check display settings it says "VGAsave"

I tried the following, none of which worked:
Played with the cables (nothing changed)
installed latest drivers (nothing changed)
tried a system restore (failed due to "unspecified error")

So what do you think? Is my graphics card dead (I dont want to spend money on new one if thats not the problem)? or could it be some other issue? Anything I can try before buying a new one?

thanks for any help

I had recently bought a ATi Radeon 9000 64MB DDR PCI Video Card online to play a game on my computer. First when I put it in a slot the resolution was low and everything was huge and when I tried to change the resolution in the control panel it didn't change anything. Then I installed the software that came with it thinking that might solve the problem and once it got done it asked me to restart. So I restarted and then it went past the computer loading screen then got stuck on a black screen and it wouldn't get passed it. So I opened up my computer and put it in a different slot, this time it started up.. got to my desktop and everything was still huge but my start bar was gone. Restarted again.. same deal. The card came with a cord, one end hooks up to the card and the other has a yellow head (Looks like those cords you would plug into your TV: Red, Yellow, and White). But I have no idea where that would plug into inside my computer.. maybe thats the problem? Any suggestions?

My Computer Specs are:
Windows XP - Home Edition
1984 RAM
~2.2 GHz Processor

Hi guys i have come across a problem that i have never come across before.

I have a Radeon 9250 TV-Out card and when I flick the TV over so that i see my desktop it works perfect. When i try to watch a movie if the movie is an avi file all i get is a blank screen on my TV but it can be seen on the monitor. If i try any other type of movie IE mpeg it can be viewed on the tv aswell as the monitor.

I have tried a Gforce FX5200 and it worked perfect without any problems its just this radeon.

I was wondering if anyone could help me please?

Thanks

Hey, I recently replaced my graphics card as the old one died on me.

It functions properly for the most part, however I have to turn the hardware acceleration down to view videos and put it back up to play games. If I do not turn it down when I run a video, the computer will begin to function extremely slow, and it takes about five minutes for me to use "end task".

I'm absolutely positive I have the most update drivers available. It's an NVIDIA. The previous card was also an NVIDIA and never had this issue, but it was much older and less powerful.

I'll give you guys the specs:

Name NVIDIA GeForce 6200
PNP Device ID PCI\VEN_10DE&DEV_0221&SUBSYS_02F1196E&REV_A1\4&1C526AC9&0&0008
Adapter Type GeForce 6200, NVIDIA compatible
Adapter Description NVIDIA GeForce 6200
Adapter RAM 256.00 MB (268,435,456 bytes)
Installed Drivers nv4_disp.dll
Driver Version 6.14.10.9131
INF File oem3.inf (nv4_NV3x section)
Color Planes 1
Color Table Entries 4294967296
Resolution 1024 x 768 x 60 hertz
Bits/Pixel 32

I'm running it on Windows XP, but this also occurred on Windows 2000 when I tested it.

My guess is that it is not loving my motherboard or processor. Sadly, I'm not certain of the make on the motherboard. I think it's a AMD-SiS, but I'm only about 60% sure on that. The processor is an "x86 Family 6 Model 8 Stepping 1 AuthenticAMD ~2000 Mhz" or so the system info says.

With the card installed are you able to access safe mode? If it locks up in safe mode I would return the card. Does your motherboard have onboard video and have you disabled it?

If you have another PC you can test with you can try the card in that machine.
