NX 6800 GT Driver issues

Hi, My card was working fine for six months now, never had any compatability issues untill now, i've checked my card on other mobo's and the problem persists, vertical lines on startup and system halts as soon as new driver is installed and the screen goes blank. I tried cleaning my card and cooling it too so im guessing its not a heating issue. When my pc enters windows it detects the card and asks for a driver, when i install the driver the system halts when installation is half complete and the screen goes black and it never reverts back to the desktop, like i mentioned before its not running any games too Please Advise Hi, My problem is that everytime i turn on my computer my 6800GT graphic card starts giving these weird vertical lines during the boot process, first i though that the driver might be corrupt, i uninstalled the driver and installed new drivers but the driver installation comes to a halt after 50% completion and my screen goes blank and never comes back to windows, my card is not running any games either and is not letting me install new drivers, plus vertical lines appear as soon as the computer is switched on. Please help ! i've spent too much money buying this card.

Re: NX 6800 GT Driver issues

Either your graphics agp slot needs the driver updating or the card itself is faulty, check the agp slot for dust and gently moneuvre the card in the slot to see if the lines appear to change and check that therea are no bent pins in your connecting plug or card.

I am having problems with my nvidia geforce 6800 gt. When i turn on my pc everything is fine but whenever i play games for ex. Bioshock or counter strike source my pc screan turns off and says no signal....

i suspect youyr graphics card is heating up and shutting off to prevent damage. windows will also shut it off but usually repaorts that it did. here is my reccomendation:
1. open side case and place a fan right nest to it. if this makes it work then heat is definitely trhe culprit. if so install a video card cooler or another exhaust fan.
2 turn all the graphics options down on the game. shut anti aliasing off and all options to minimun. then try to play if it still shuts off then your card may be on its last leg from over heating. the 6800 gt was ok when it came out but todays games require more. in fact the newer games won't run on a 6800 gt.
the big thing is heat. the standard 6800 gt just doesn't get rid of enough heat. in fact the 9800 gt i had overheated and burned out. i stay away from gt and now use gtx cards. they have a better cooler and ususally the vent outside of the case.

You may have adjusted the video settings of the games to higher settings that may not be compatible with your card.
While in a game press the windows key and D together.
If you go back to desktop it means the video settings of your games are to set higher than your card can support.
Hope this helps.
For further assistance please feel free to ask me.

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

Is my Motherboard compatible?

Try to find out what the AGP voltage is on the motherboard.
Some graphics cards use 1.5 volts and some use 3.
If it's a 1.5 volt AGP slot and you plug a 3 volt graphics card in, it either wont work or you could permanantly damage both card and motherboard.

Is my Motherboard compatible?

Probably not. There is not quite enough information in your post to really help, but from what I'm finding on the GeForce 6800 GT, it is only available in PCI-Express and AGP 8x (AGP3.0) Versions. Your motherboard only supports AGP 1x, 2x and 4x (AGP2.0) cards.
