NVIDIA RIVA TNT2 and INTEL 845G COMAPRISON

Q: NVIDIA RIVA TNT2 and INTEL 845G COMAPRISON

Now, technically, which graphics card is faster in drawing: the NVidia Riva TNT2 AGP or the INtel 845G PCI? I noticed that the TNT2 has slightly higher framerates.

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.

Do you meant the integrated series? If so, the Riva TNT would be better.

Hi,
I'm putting a new motherboard in my PC (Asrock p4v88) and in the instructions for the board is a note (do not use a 3.3v AGP on the AGP slot of this board). I hope to fit my old video card into the new mthbrd, it is a NVIDIA RIVA TNT2 64 PRO. I haven't a clue what the voltage is of my video card. Can I fit this old card in or do I go out and purchase a new video card of a known voltage?

Thank you
Donald Ashton
 

A:Need The Voltage Of My Nvidia Riva Tnt2 64 Pro

I don't recommend using that card in that machine. Not only is there a risk of it damaging the slot, it's also an incredibly old and slow card, if your new motherboard has onboard video it is likely faster than that TNT2-M64.

A:Nvidia Riva TNT2 update drivers

Support for TNT2 ended quite some time ago. I'm surprised you can even make a TNT2 work with Vista at all. Even for XP you have to go into the legacy drivers and download one of the older drivers that still includes TNT2 support from the nvidia website.

I recently reformatted my computer's harddrive, and I've been working on getting everything back to it's normal working order. I'm having issues with my video card. It should be installed correctly, I haven't taken it out at all, and it worked a while before the reformat. I think I have the correct driver installed (This one).

But when I plug the monitor into the video card's plug, the monitor won't show anything, it's just blank with the little light, normally green, glowing orange. When I go to the System Information, the only video card that shows up is the one on the motherboard.

Am I using the correct driver? Any other possible solutions?
 

A:nVidia Riva TNT2 Model 64 issues

G'day Redalert95, I gather you have onboard video and that is working but your card is not. It is not a good idea to plug video leads if the machine is running, it could quite easily kill something.
It is possible that you may need to disable the onboard video in BIOS to allow the daughter card to operate.
This makes it odd that it may have changed from previous settings which were apparently working OK.
If this might be correct it may be pertinent to replace the battery at this time before going any further.
Your board manual BIOS settings should help determine what is happening. In some machines if you plug in a video card the onboard is automatically disabled, but your note does not infer this to be the case, therefore it seems you are going to have to carefully follow the BIOS set instructons in the manual. You likely have an onboard enable somewhere. The LED showing orange instead of green simply indicates no information is being received by the monitor.
You should not need any driver to be loaded to give your card operation for the monitor to operate in a basic mode.
The proper driver will only give the thing all the colours and abilities you are used to normally seeing.
Be extremely careful and ensure the power lead is removed anytime you plug items like cards, and ensure your follow antistatic rules.
Cheers, qldit.

I continue to get intermittent screen messages that I have a problem with my Nvidia graphics driver, occasionally causing shut downs and generating error messages to microsoft.
Although possibly completely unrelated, I also find that my computer shuts down on its own if left alone about 30 minutes, and when turned back on, goes through an odd reboot on its own whcih returns me to where I was before leaving.
The microsoft proposed solution is to download a new driver off the Nvidia website though they also say Nvidia has no solution to the problem. When I go to the Nvidia website, I can find a downloadable driver for XP. (www.nvidia.com/object/driver_installation_hints.html) , though the instructions request me to:
1- disable download accelerator utilities ( How do I find if I have any? I recall loading one at one time, but can't remember if it was on this computer, or find anything suggesting this on my start menu)
2-turn off my virus protection- can do
3- remove Nvidia display drivers from the control panel using the add/remove function.- I can't find any. However, I do find reference to them in my systems folder listing a TNT2 nmodel V 5.6.7.3 dated 4/7/04. It seems odd that I have a listing in the latter, but not in the former. It also seems odd that they would request the removal of the old one first. Will my monitor work if its removed??
Thanks for any assistance

If you are still using this old video card in your Windows XP desktop(like I am in one of mine), the NVIDIA ForceWare 61.77 and 66.93 drivers are the ones that you want to install and use. If you try to install and use the 71.84, 71.89, or newer versions, they will NOT install. I have done some experimenting and have confirmed this.

Couldn't find a quick answer to this but if the "old" machine runs okay as it is then it should have no problem with the TNT2 card. They are a pretty old card and were designed for the machines of the day which (by today's standards) were pretty slow and didn't need a huge amount of power to get them going. I assume the "old" machine has a AGP slot to fit the card into?

Well...you can get the latest drivers for the card, but it won't help that much, because it's a TNT2...and PCI....

If you wanted to play newer games, you'd have to get a new video card....but if you're running a PCI video card right now, then it may not be worth it...check if you have an AGP slot, is should be above the PCI slots on the motherboard, and slightly offset from them...if you have an AGP slot, then that's good, because you could get a good video card...but if you don't, you'll probably be better off getting a whole new system rather than just upgrading the video.

some of your ram might be bad.windows should pickup the whole thing or not at all.I have a tnt pro 2 with 32mb.
try removing it puting your old card back in restart then shut down and put the tnt back in and make sure it is in evenly and firmly pushed in if it's not you could have problems.and then restart again.reinstall the drivers.
All internal work must be done with power off.
if you changed from pci to agp make sure that enabled is set in the BIO for AGP. It should work but it is a little finiky if it wasn't pushed in just right.so leave the case off untill you get it right because you might have to remove it a few times untill you get it right. good luck

Wondering how you disabled your sis chip, this from the sis web site about adding pci card to a 620 system

If you add on a PCI VGA card on a AGP/Super AGP VGA based board (like 5600+6326, 530, 620), you
will need to set up the display priority. Every board maker has her way to do the setting. Some of them will implement
it in the BIOS, in the item "Integrated Peripheral","Initial Display First", you can choose "PCI slot". However some other
makers do the setting by jumpers, you need to refer to your manual or contact the makers for further help. The best
solution is to ask help from your board maker. However if you don't know who the maker is, you can track from the
store where you buy the computer, or ask any local pc dealer if they know there's a way to help you. After you
finish the hardware part, you can remove the our vga driver from your system. Please go to "Control
Panel","Add/Delete programs" to remove the driver. Please don't care about the exclamation mark that appears in the
Device Manager, if you have already install your second card successfully. It won't influence your VGA display.

You'd probably need more info than that so just ask but i can't remember EXACTLY whats in the pc. I can't look at the specs because no monitor will work.

any help would be great, this is driving me mad

i have a nvidia riva tnt2 model 64 card and a 15" NEC LCD monitor

i have these horizontal lines running across my screen that are like 'shadows'. like when im using microsoft word, or typing in any white textbox, there are horizontal lines that run from the text across the screen.

i've tried uninstalling/re-installing drivers a million times, changing refresh rates, making sure the card is plugged in and all cables are secure, etc. i also know it isnt the monitor because it works perfectly on my roommates computer. i also made sure to properly clean out old drivers before changing them.

any help would be appreciated!

This sounds as thought the card is faulty. Try it in your mates machine and see what happens.

A:OpenGL + Nvidia Tnt2 Troubles

You should try an older driver - the new ones have issues.

Try an early 40 driver or even the oldest one they have: http://www.nvidia.com/object/winxp-2k_archive.html

The driver should be listed in Add/Remove Programs.

I have a Compaq Presario 5000 (5WV373) that had Windows ME and was working properly. I just formated the computer and installed Win 2K as a default installation. Everything is working properly but the Nvidia card. I couldn't install it. I only have 16 colors, 800x600.
This Nvidia card came within the Compaq and I lost all the installation CDs so I was at Nvidia.com and I download the "56.72 winxp nVIDIA DRIVER" but it doesn't work. I execute it but when it finish nothing happened, the driver is not installed, the Nvidia card doesn't work.
I would appreciate any help to make this card work!!!!!

Thanks in Advance.

A:I Can't install my Nvidia TNT2 M64 PRO 16MB in W2K

You'll need to download the riva drivers, not the geforce ones. Uninstall the geforce drivers BEFORE you install the rivas.
EDIT:I am wrong. I used to have a TNT card but it was years ago. Sorry.

Here's the deal: I have a piece of software called Gigastudio which conflicts severely with my TNT2. I wonder if perhaps instead of replacing the card, an alternate set of drivers would be an option. The only graphics stipulation is that it needs to be 16 bit in order for me to run Cubase. Thanks a bunch!
P.S. Here is the exact brand name of the card.

Nvidia TNT2 M64 32MB 4X AGP
