The video card you used may work for the 2nd computer but not for the 1st because of the system requirements. They might be different simply because they are different models. check which video card is RECOMMENDED, NOT MINIMUM, and get the recommended video card.
However, if it is the right video card, then get it checked at a pc shop, like pcworld or somewhere like that and see what they think of it.

The card could be failing. Try checking that the fans are turning on the HIS when computer is on. Also make sure the heatsink under the fan is fully touching. The card may think it is overheating so check all the connections under the cover on the HIS card

Computer won't start when powered up

Hi knicholas550,

I don't blame your for not wanting to spend the money, and you could keep on spending if the card isn't your problem. What I would do to test my machine is, first connect it to another monitor that you know works. If you don't have one lying around, go to a friends and switch cables. While your over at your friends, take the computer and monitor, so you can switch both back and forth to test if your monitor does work, or your computer.

If you get no results, it still doesn't mean it's the graphics card. When you turn on the machine, do you get a single beep single from the computer's motherboard? If not, it could be your hard drive that's bad, or a memory chip that's bad, or worst case the motherboard itself. You have to eliminate the problem, by testing each one of the components that could cause the computer to not start. Depending on the computer there are troubleshooting guides in most manuals to help you test the computer, otherwise depending on your experience I might suggest taking to a certified technician (possibly a frient) to help you figure this out.

If you do get a beep from the motherboad, then you should also here the hard drive spinning around, and click and so on. This would indicate that it could be the graphics card. Otherwise, don't just throw your money away until you know for sure!!!

Good Luck

9400Gt won't work anymore

Hello tainted feat,

Please download DriverSweeper:
Reboot into SafeMode and select the Nvidia drivers and PhysX. Select only those. Do not delete the chipset drivers. Reboot into normal mode and then go here to download drivers.

This should work. Good luck

I have an asus mother board with athlon64 3800+ cpu. I have two dual head nvidia geforce 6600 vid cards ea. w/ 1 pcie and 1 pci output to sli and vga, respectively. I barely know what I'm talking about...

sounds like your computer is going into standby or sleep mode. Does hitting enter on the keyboard turn it back on? Does pressing the power button turn it back on? One of those should do it.

You can change it so it does not do this, In windows xp you can goto power options in the control panel, and change system standby to 'never'. Not sure in vista probably about the same thing.

If this doesn't help then maybe you have a hardware problem.

No signal on monitor when card is seated

the problem occured probably because of a power shortage of motherboard battery malfunction, if your motherboard has an integrated graphics card you then need to enter setup and disable it or choose which graphis card your pc has to use but you have to do this while connected to the on-board vga slot as the other one won't be working, you will problably find the choice under the
'integrated periferals" menu in the setup menu, and to access it you have to press the "DEL" button when your pc starts-F10 in some devices-

The problem resides with your monitor or your video card. To easily find out, get a family member or a neighbor to bring over their LCD monitor, then check the display. An LCD is the easiest to carry and easiest to position on a busy desk. If the display is normal on the LCD monitor, then your "other" monitor is defective, and vice versa. (Please ensure the monitors are at least turned OFF before you switch them, not necessary to turn off the computer) ZT3000 "Beta tester of "0"s and "1's"

Monitor goes blank after showing XP logo screen (black screen with the xp logo right after boot up screens)

There are different reasons why this might happen. Let's try some. 1.) Does your board have an onboard video card, cause if it does, then XP might be using that as the primary monitor. TRy plugging into the onboard video when you start up! If that works then you need to disable the onboard video.(try disabling it in bios!) if not then 2.)When booting at the select xp or recovery console, press F8. You'll get the menu with safe mode and what not. Go down to Enable VGA Mode then press enter. If that works, go to display settings and lower your resolution then restart. But usually when this happens your monitor says "Out of Range" but u can still try Well if that doesn't work, tell me more! Regards, Armando
