S-Video out on NVIDIA GeForce 9500 GT, 512 Mb

Q: S-Video out on NVIDIA GeForce 9500 GT, 512 Mb

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 such a thing as a DVI to Svideo converter so I could use one of the DVI ports that I know is working? Can I convert S-Video or DVI to composite video? I really don't want to buy a new video card if I can avoid it because the goal here was to recycle old equipment, not spend money on anything new.

Any help would be appreciated greatly. You know, it's nice to post on a tech support forum and not have it be because I have a virus that is eating my C: drive or because my power supply is smoking .

I recommend downloading and running DAP. It can help sort out any driver and firmware related issues on your system

It's worked out well for many of us in the past.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloaddap.org. (This link will open the download page of DAP so you can save a copy to your computer.)

Trying running a Windows Update, it's a long shot. Seems like it stops working you get onto your operating system, an issue with vista perhaps?

Hello Overson, welcome to the forum

Windows update does not necessarily install the newest drivers . If you are having no problems with the driver 266.58 then I would stay with that one

Hey guys, I recently bought a Geforce 9500 GT and I'm looking to overclock it. It's from BFG Tech (part number BFGC951024GTE) It comes clocked at 550, and I'd like to overclock it to 600 or 650 (600 first, watch temps ext.)

When playing games, it averages in about around 54 celcius, which is pretty decent for gaming. It QUICKLY drops down to high 40's (47 currently, just coming from playing WoW on full).

I've heard about RivaTuner, and it looks promising, I'm just not 100% sure yet. How good is RivaTuner, or what can I use to overclock my GPU?

Also, I am using Windows 7. Would this make any difference?

Thanks a lot guys!

A:Overclocking a nVidia Geforce 9500 GT?

Overclocking the 9500GT (which is pretty much a 8600GTs) may gain you 2~5fps.

RivaTuner is an OC software you can use. If you want noticeable more performance, you need a better video card... Even something like the $65 4670/9600GT is about twice as fast. But even the 9500gt is more than enough for WOW.

Win7 make a difference in what?

Well it is obviously your video driver or card. These crashes were virtually identical. All are bugcheck 116 which is the system attempting to reset the video card after a failure with no success.

though your hardware may be less than 5 months old you network card and driver are not. Your current driver has a 2003 date on it. I am surprised you are even able to get to the internet
Try replacing your video driver this way

When upgrading your graphic driver you MUST remove all traces of the current driver. In order to do that we recommend using Guru3D - Driver Sweeper

When it is removed then download and install the fresh copy.

HI, I've got a Dell Dimension 5100 and a few days ago I was given said graphics card as a gift. However, due to my case and the position of my PCI-E slot I can only fit a low profile card into it and the 9500 has a double bracket. I would like to know if it's possible to buy a low-profile bracket for this card? I've looked around at a few LP brackets but none seem as though they would fit the output ports on the card. This is my card:

^ The top half with air inlets make it too hall to fit inside the case. If anyone can help I'd be very grateful, thanks.

Hello there

I upgraded my GFX card about a few months back, probally more and I never had any problems with playing games or remote desktop sharing until I installed my GeForce 9500 GT.

I can browse My Computer, surf the internet, chat on IM, play music, pretty much anything apart from playing games and remote desktop sharing using TeamView. When ever I play a game, it works for like 5 minutes and then BSOD appears, same goes with Team View. This has been happening for a long time now and I was just ignoring it but now It really is starting to annoy me

I've searched upon the BSOD error and I have found no results. I was told to copy the mindumps and NFO and upload them so here they are.

I was also told to run the "sfc/ scannow" utility and this is the result.

Microsoft Windows [Version 6.1.7600]
Copyright (c) 2009 Microsoft Corporation. All rights reserved.

C:\Users\Gareth>sfc /scannow

Beginning system scan. This process will take some time.

Beginning verification phase of system scan.
Verification 100% complete.

Windows Resource Protection did not find any integrity violations.


I would really appreciate if anyone could help me. It really is annoying me now.

Note: The .zip includes 3 dumps (2 from today and 1 from yesterday) and the NFO of my System Information.

Update 1: Here is a screen shot of the BSOD.

Thank you.

Seems like an error with your video driver from your dmp. Is the card from NVidia, or another mfg. If another, try using their drivers for the latest update.

Hiya people I am having a problem with my TV or it could be my graphics card anyway I have the Nvidia gforce 9500 GT connected to my 32" LCD tv via DVI to HDMI but when I have it connected via HDMI port 1 on my TV the picture becomes blurry and I have scaling problems but I can fix the scaling problems. Anyway once I sort out the scaling problem the picture looks blurry and it looks like the brightness is set too high I have tried changing it in the nvidia control pannel and the same with my tv but it still stays the same.

Anyways when i connect it via HDMI port 2 on my TV the picture runs perfect the brightness is fine as well as the scaling and also the picture looks alot more vibrant and does not have the grayish look and I dont have to mess about with any of the settings. and when I have my Xbox 360 or my ps3 on this port the picture looks hell of alot better as the picture looks more vibrant and the black seems to be better on this port too

anyways anyone know if there is a fix for this!? if so HELP!

if you need to know any of my specs or settings or make of tv let me know and I shall post it as soon as i can

Hi everybody. I recently finished my first build, and am currently trying to work though some problems that I hope someone can help me with.

So as soon as I got it working I decided to test out my games. Hitman Blood Money, and Left4Dead worked perfectly fine. I decided next logical test would be Team Fortress 2. When that started up it worked initially. After a few minutes and graphical tweaks it started trying to redisplay the game. It flipped out, stopped displaying text and buttons, and then only displayed 4 slightly different colored giant squares on the screen. I hit alt+F4, and ctrl+alt+delete to try and get out, which didnt work. The computer just restarted on its own.

Luckily it started back up without a hitch, so I tried Garry's Mod. Same thing happened. At this point i decided to reinstall the graphics drivers. After that finished I tried again, same thing happened. This time i was fortunate enough to alt+F4 out in time, so it didnt restart. After this I decided to look towards my Nvidia options for the answer.

I changed the refresh rate to 75 hertz (Highest Option), and changed the performance settings from "Quality" to "Performance".

After this, again, I tried TF2 and it finally worked! ... temporarily. I got into a game and it seemed to work great, until I exited out and a new problem arrose. The previous problem only happened in games, but this one was both in and out of them. This one was leaving stray pixels on the screen whenev... Read more

A:Nvidia Geforce 9500 Graphics Card Grainy Issue

Sorry for the double post, but the Edit option was gone... ? I think... weird...

Anyway, If any of your think this is more a game issue, could you please tell me. That way I can move onto the steam forums instead. I think it belongs here though, because to me it seems like more of a hardware issue

If it is a problem with my graphics card then I'll need to know before the end of the month so I can ship it back to newegg for a replacement so please if any of you have any idea (Even a slight idea) I would greatly appreciate it.

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.

I just got my NVIDIA Geforce 7900 GT.

1) Uninstalled ATI Raedon x300 XPRESS Series (came with the computer)
2) Turned off the computer and inserted the Nvidia Geforce card in (it's a XFX btw) like the manual said
3) Started it back up and installed the drivers
4) Went to 'Setup' (when startin the PC) and changed Video Mode to PCI-E and disabled all BIOs except the sound

I go to start a game to test it out and I still get the same FPS. I wouldn't expect to get the same FPS as I did with the integrated graphics so I'm stuck and confused to why it's (exactly) the same FPS.

I have checked my display adapters and I only see "NVIDIA Geforce 7900 GT" and it seems to recognize it's installed correctly.

Comp. Specs:
AMD Athlon
Windows XP

I'm probably going to build a new computer from scratch with this card LATER on but right now I want to use this with this computer.

I have a NVIDIA GeForce 6200 Video card that I recently did a driver upgrade on. The driver version is Dated 10-14-07.

I just did a PC Pitstop Performance check and the results show LOW video performance of 14.42MPS. This SUCKS!

A similar test run just (2) weeks ago showed 93 MPS. I'm pretty sure that was with the old driver.

Why would a new driver KILL the video performance ????

Trying to upgrade the video performance on my stock CPU (details here http://support.hp.com/us-en/document/c02481314 ).  Games already loaded - Overwatch, and War Thunder.  Both games will run, but the lag is pretty bad. Did on-line research and I think the NVIDIA GeForce GTX 750Ti card should work - runs just on the card slot, rated for 300W PSU (card details here - https://www.amazon.com/EVGA-GeForce-750Ti-Graphics-02G-P4-3753-KR/dp/B00IDG3PRI?th=1 and here http://www.geforce.com/hardware/desktop-gpus/geforce-gtx-750-ti/specifications). But, my motherboard hasn't had a BIOS update since purchase (BIOS Revision 6.04 09/07/10) and I'm not even sure if HP has a BIOS update for this computer.  I'm worried that either the MOB or the Windows 10 OS won't pick up the card, leaving me with a dark screen following the install.  Some additional investigation suggests that the card's PCI 3.0 format may cause issues. Already familiar with the new card install process - uninstall AMD drivers... power down CPU... remove old card - install new, install new drivers after successful boot. Bottom line - with a seven year old stock CPU should I even be trying to upgrade the video capability?

With some of the problems users have had with the adding of newer video cards, it might be a good idea to purchase from a shop that has a good return policy.  That subject card is not on the Compatible list but it might be OK.  you will not know for sure until you try it.  It is a very good card for upgrading purposes.http://www.pc-specs.com/mobo/HP/HP_N-Alvorix-RS880-uATX_(Alvorix)/1631/Compatible_GPUs

i put a new 128mb Nvidia GeForce FX5500 video card in to upgrade from a 32mb tnt2/PRO and it couldnt take the drivers i had the cd and i got the driver straight off of nvidia website and the drivers still wont go in it stays at a low 4bit picture and the resolution stays at a 640x480, so i put the old card back in and it wont even boot the picture for the bios.

A:Nvidia GeForce FX5500 video card Trouble

hmmm did the 32 mb card work properly?
did you uninstall the 32 mb card drivers?
try having your minitor cable linked straight onto the motherboard monitor connector if you have one and i think the reason the picture would not boot from bios is becouse some drivers are still installed.
did you uninstall the fx 5500 drivers before putting the 32 mb card back in.

check if the graphics card uses too utch power and check if the monitor is connected onto the graphics card properly.

the problem you are facing could be due to motherboard related problems or you may have a faulty graphics card or you simply might be installing the graphics card wrong (read the instruction booklet carefully)

i had problems with my ge force fx 5200 pci simuler to your problem but it was due to me not disableing the onboard 4mb drivers

Hello all,

I recently tried to play the game Champions Online for the PC and found out that my video card was preventing me from doing so. My Current video card is Nvidia GeForce 6150SE nForce 430. I don't want to play Hard core games for my PC, just this one mainly.

The Reqs. for the game are(Minimum):
OS:Windows XP SP2/ Windows Vista/Windows 7
CPU:2.5GHz Single Core or 1.8GHz Dual Core
Memory:1GB RAM
Video:NVIDIA GeForce 7600 / ATI Radeon X700 or HD / Intel GMA 4
Sound: DirectX 9.0c Compatible Soundcard
DirectX:Version 9.0c or Higher
HDD:5GB Free Disk Space
Network:Broadband Required

My Computer is a Compaq cq5110F PC and was wondering what kind of video card would be compatible for it. I don't plan on becoming a hard core gamer, I just want to play this game. I also play a game known as Anarchy online, and with a bigger video card, i'll have to replace my Power supply, it's 300W right now.

I have a fairly limited knowledge on the inside of computers, but any other information you need i'll try my best to give to you. Thanks in advance for your help.

I have also attached a DxDiag, to help further.

A:Upgrading my video card from Nvidia GeForce 6150SE

if you were to follow the game's minimum requirements i would recommend at least a 400w PSU, but it depends on the power supply itself as they are all different. if the card needs auxiliary power then it will most likely tax the PSU too much if you have a lot of other components, but you could always try. the radeon X700 isn't a very demanding card so i wouldn't be surprised if it worked fine with the unit you have. on the other hand, 400-500w power supplies are cheap nowadays and it can only benefit your system if you choose to invest in one, but it's your call. just because you don't need high end stuff doesn't mean a beefier PSU is a bad idea

Alright, I recently decided my old computer needed an upgrade from my onboard UniChrome Pro video chip. I got the 5500 from a friend who was replacing it, since it would suit my needs. I brought it home and tried to install it, deactivating my onboard, getting the card in place, and starting my computer back up. My screen was a bit messed up at start up, I expected it to be until I got the drivers installed. However, when Windows starts up my screen loses it's connection and goes black. Any ideas for help?

I bought a new laptop - ACER 5745G.

After the initial Windows 7 64bit installation my scores were 6.6, 5.9, 5.9, 6.0 and only the Graphics for Areo a 4.9. Since I mostly want to use this laptop for watching HD videos, I figured those are scores aren't low and was satisfied. However, after automatic updates were installed all scores went down at least 1.0 point.

I tried installing a driver from NVIDIA's website, I tried changing performance settings but nothing made it better - instead in the end the graphics for aero score became 3.7.

I used system restore to get the laptop back to the date before some automatic updates were installed but I don't think I can make it stay like this forever.

Is this a bad graphics card? Am I expecting a score that is too high? And most importantly - what settings do I need to have in order to get the best video quality?

Thank you in advance!

hey all,

im gonna be swapping out my 660 Ti for a GTX 1060 in a few days and i was wondering if i can keep the current drivers (v375.95) that are installed via the GeForce Experience.
will the GeForce Exp know i have a different video card and automatically find the appropriate drivers for it?
or should i just manually try and uninstall then reinstall whatever is the newest driver
and are the drivers universal across the GTX line of cards?

A:changing video cards and NVIDIA GeForce Experience

All need to be removed before you install the new card.
Windows will install a generic display driver so you can login but download the new driver for the new card before hand so you can manually install it after getting to the desktop
The cd that may come with the card is probably old anyway,

I am unable to use the NetFlix Watch Instantly Application on my XPS m1210 because my current Nvidia Geforce Go 7400 Driver is not compatible and needs to be updated.  I updated to the latest Geforce Go 7400 driver available on the Dell Support site and I am still getting the same message.  Has anyone else had this problem and were they able to find the correct driver update?

Hey everyone,

I have been looking at this card Geforce 9500 GT for a replacement for my awful integrated card. I don't intend to put a lot of stress on it, so I though this would work well.

First question: Would I need to replace my PSU? Currently, I am using the base PSU from a eMachines T6542, a 300 watt one, I believe. Currently, I have an AMD 3500+ 2.21 CPU, 2 gigs 800 mHz DDR2 memory, 160 gig HD, etc. I have no other major peripherals besides a mouse, keyboard and shipped speakers. I don't intend to run Crysis or any other really high powered game and the few games that I will play such as Oblivion, I don't intend to run higher than 1024x768 for now. This site says the Max Board Power Draw was 50 watts but I'm not sure if that's what it means.

Second: I am running XP Media Center 05 with DirectX 9.0c. Because the card is DX10, can I still use it?

Third: The card is supposed to use a PCI E 2.0 slot. My motherboard has the older 1.1 slot; I read that it is backwards compatible. Is this true?

Fourth: Finally, in relation to the first question, would it endanger my motherboard or any other part if the PSU was not adequate for the GPU?

Thanks in advance.

A:Solved: Geforce 9500 GT Questions

1. Yup, you'll need at minimum a 350 watt or greater PSU with 18 amps on the volt rail. eMachines PSU's don't usually cut it and have a bad habit of dieing under normal use as it is.

2. Yup, you won't get DX10 but no big loss there.

3. PCI-Express 2.0 is indeed backward compatible to versions 1.1.

4. You could damage your motherboard, video card, power supply, and any other components if the power supply fails because it was overloaded. A power supply is a lot cheaper to buy then a whole new computer.

For headroom and future upgradeable get a 450 watt or higher wattage power supply from a quality manufacturer. A cheap 450 watt unit will be a worse then the stock one you have one.

Here's some I would recommend: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produ...Value=1314:14178&PropertyCodeValue=1314:14177

I am having trouble with my graphics card. It cuts out for no apparent reason. It then will not start up and has a continous beep beep sound when I try. After several hours rest it will restart.

This first happened a week ago when the computer was left on overnight. It now has happened two more times after one hour of use.

Is it overheating? or lack of power ?

Hello, this is my first post here on this forum and hopefully someone here can offer me a solution, because I'm at at my wits end trying to get this to work. I'll try to list off everything that I've tried.

GPU: XFX GeForce 9500

Gateway LX-6200

(any other info needed, just request)

P.S. Not sure of the MoBo build. It was the original MoBo that came with the computer.

I originally did what I normally do when installing any graphics card; I uninstalled the on-board graphics card drivers and disabled it, then attempted to install the drivers for the new card. While running the installation, an error appeared telling me that it didn't detect any Nvidia compatible hardware in my setup. So I checked my device manager and sure enough, there was only the onboard card showing up in the list. So I tried restarting the computer to see if a reboot would cause it to appear. Nothing happened, so I ran CCleaner and Driver Sweeper to clear any registry and drivers issues that could be occuring. I rebooted, and still nothing appeared. So I went into the BIOS and tried to change some settings in there. I disabled the on-board through the options there, but that only caused the BIOS to give me issues and I couldn't even reach the splash screen, so I reset it and then tried changing the load settings from IGFX-GFXO-GPP-PCI to GFXO-GPP-IGFX-PCI, saved and then reboo...

A:Vista x64 does not detect XFX GeForce 9500 GPU


with all the things you have tried it may be that difficult to undo all of them. If you need anything on that driave now is the time to backup.

then you can do a system fikle checker by typing cmd in search and then sfc /scannow. see if that works. If it doesn't you should do a repair install.

I assume you have the vista dvd.

Hi all,

I am having a baffling issue regarding the install of an Nivdia Geforce GT710 video card into an HP
H8-1217c desktop running windows 10. Here is the problem as described below:

The card installs into the motherboard with no problem. When the desktop boots up, I get the startup splash screen for several seconds then the screen goes blank. The computer does not crash and shut down, but becomes unresponsive until I shut it down. If I take the card out, the desktop runs with no problems.

I've researched the card for several weeks and it appears to be a good match for the desktop I'm trying to install
it in, so I am at a loss to explain why this is happening. The desktop in question is being used for processing home videos and the video card supports 2 displays which is what I am looking for.

Any ideas and suggestions are welcome and greatly appreciated.

The specs of the desktop in question are below:

Tech Support Guy System Info Utility version
OS Version: Microsoft Windows 10 Home, 64 bit
Processor: Intel(R) Core(TM) i7-2600 CPU @ 3.40GHz, Intel64 Family 6 Model 42 Stepping 7
Processor Count: 8
RAM: 8098 Mb
Graphics Card: Intel(R) HD Graphics, -1988 Mb

Again, thanks in advance for any ideas and suggestions.


A:Problem Installing Nvidia GeForce GT710 Video Card

You appear to have a HP Pavilion HPE h8-1217c Desktop PC.
Its Pegatron motherboard has a PCI Express 2.0 x16 slot for adding a graphic card, and it has a 300W power supply.
I'm very familiar with the NVIDIA GeForce GT 710 graphic card, and your HP desktop should be able to handle it just fine.

After you uninstall the driver for the Intel graphic device, then shut down(not restart) that desktop, then install the graphic card, then start up that desktop, it should load fine.
You need to be patient and let it go through its startup process.
Once it does, then you can install the current driver (388.13) for the graphic card.

What do you mean when you say that desktop becomes unresponsive until you shut it down?
What exactly is it doing after you press the power-on button?
