Your card might not be compatible or card's bios has been changed to detect your card type as a different card type thus rendering it useless.Call HP and tell them about it or ship it to me to check it.My address is 903 44th street Washington DC 20019Tunde Oguntokun.
Regarding this particular model, this has AGP (Accelerated Graphics Port) 4X expansion slot for graphics cards, I don't think it is still available in the market, you may try to purchase a good second hand graphics card for this and this is fully compatible with windows XP. Just ask for AGP 4X compatible cards, available graphics memory will be 64 MB, 128 MB and 256 MB. Hope this helps.
Unfortunately, there is no way to run on board graphics with your dedicated graphics card. One will always be disabled, (would need a hybrid SLI/Crossfire board for that option).
You will need to upgrade to a graphics card that has dual DVI & or VGA outputs built in to be able to hook up 2 monitors. (output type of port depends on what type of connector you have on the monitor cables)
Hello ghinea18, sorry you can't do that because this will cause hardware conflict, that's why motherboard bios automatically disable integrated graphics if you install video card using pci express x16 slot - Nvidia GeForce 7300SE. do you know if your video card has dual vga or dual dvi connection?
You can try dual display, im not sure if this card supports dual monitors because nvidia online specs does not show full specs on 7300se series. \
This is a very common problem with nVidia geforce 8400 and 8600 cards. Serach google with this "Defective Nvidia geforce card" and you will see lots of user facing same problem in HP, Dell etc..
I too have an Hp laptop with nvidia geforce 8400. I have faced similar
problems(screen got divided into 8 parts) in past for 3 times. Every
time I have to replace my motherboard at HP service center.... It is
caused by overheating of laptop that destroys the nvidia graphic card. Go to the service Center and ask for a motherboard replacement. hope this will help.....
Verify that the VGA cable is fully seated and connected. If you can test the computer on another monitor or test another computer on that monitor. Are you getting any video display on the monitor? Does it display the start-up screen then goes away when windows starts? If so start the computer and press F5. A menu will come up and select to start computer in VGA mode. This should bring up windows so you can change the screen resoloution to something the monitor can handle. If the computer does not display anything and the monitor is testing good then the on-board video or video card might be faulty. You could change the video card if it has one or add one to the system if it has on-board video. You could also try re-setting the BIOS jumper to clear the cmos or pull out the watch battery for 20 seconds. Another thing to try is to disconnect all hardware...cd-rom, hard drive, floppy drive, and memory dimms and see if it boots up with display. If that works the you will need to re-install each piece of hardware one at a time and re-boot until the problem happens again. Once it does that is your problem device. You could also try swapping out the power supply and see if that is the cause of the problem.
