Question about PC Desktops

1 Answer

I have an NVIDIA geforce 7900GT that is giving me problems. when i boot up i see characters that are the wrong colour or the wrong characters completely. this is before i even get to windows. when i get to the loading windows screen, the black background behind the windows flag has blue and green dots. i know its not an overheating problem because i noticed the problem as soon as i started up my pc and the card was cold.

Acer Aspire 5520G and Nvidia 8400M G. I have tried to install newest drivers from Nvidia official page, but after restarting my windows 8 freezes at home screen.


Booting Into Safe Mode on Windows 8

The trick is to hold the Shift button and mash the F8 key, this will sometimes boot you into the new advanced "recovery mode", where you can choose to see advanced repair options.

You will need to click on the Troubleshoot option.
image32.png
Now select Advanced Options.
image33.png
Now choose the Windows Startup Settings option, by the looks of things we were never meant to find Safe Mode.
image34.png
Finally hit the Restart button.

Like magic, when your PC reboots you will be able to boot into Safe Mode from the familiar looking Advanced Boot Options screen.

select safemode with networking

go to driver site NVIDIA DRIVERS GeForce 335 23 Driver WHQL
32 bit version

for the 64 bit
NVIDIA DRIVERS GeForce 335 23 Driver WHQL

install in safe mode hope that works

UPGRADE of CPU and graphics card in HP Pavillion 9000?


The HP Pavilion dv97072ea Notebook PC?

http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/product?product=3308945&lc=en&cc=us&dlc=en&lang=en&cc=us

Nope.
Doesn't use the MXM technology, with using a separate graphics ->adapter card.
The graphics chipset (GPU) is soldered directly to the motherboard. (GPU on a small circuit board, that is)
It's Integrated Graphics,

http://www.ascendtech.us/hp-434659-001-dv9000-laptop-motherboard_i_mbhp434659001lm.aspx

Scroll the page down to the larger photos.

The Nvidia GeForce GO 7600 mobile graphics chipset, is the darker OD green circuit board. (Generally speaking)
In the views you are looking at the TOP of the motherboard.

You see the white rectangular Processor socket, with the square hole in the middle.
Next to it is a green square circuit board, and next to that is the darker, Olive Drab green square circuit board, that is the Nvidia GeForce GO 7600 graphics chipset.
{Circuit board and GPU, is referred to now as the graphics chipset.
That is why I stated - Generally speaking, above }

[GPU,

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/GPU ]

You can see the Nvidia GeForce GO7600T chipset, and circuit board, more clearly here,

http://www.ebay.com/itm/100-new-nVIDIA-GeForce-GF-GO7600T-N-B1-GPU-BGA-IC-Chipset-with-Balls-/190698089722?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item2c667decfa

It's mounted to the motherboard with a BGA surface mount.
Ball Grid Array.

To explain the Ball Grid Array surface mount, simply;

In the photo of the chipset in the Ebay link above, you are looking at a green square circuit board, with an Nvidia 7600 GO, mobile graphics chipset, in the middle. You are looking at a TOP view.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Comparison_of_Nvidia_graphics_processing_units#GeForce_Go_7_.28Go_7xxx.29_series

The GPU ->Nvidia GeForce GO 7600, is mounted to the green circuit board.
The bottom of the green circuit board has Solder Balls.

The Solder Balls take the place of Contact Pins.
(Contact pins, such as on the bottom of an Intel Pentium 4 processor, that uses a Socket 478 processor socket)

On the motherboard are matching Copper Pads.
(The copper pads are coated with a gold plating)

The Nvidia graphics chipset is set down on the motherboard, with the Solder Balls lining up on the matching Copper Pads.
Heat is then applied at a specific temperature, and length of time.

This action makes the solder balls melt, and solders the Nvidia GeForce GO 7600 to the copper pads.
(Which in turn solders it to the motherboard)

This demonstration of a BGA Rework Station, shows you more about the above technique,

http://www.ersa.com/art-ir-pl-650-346-1472.html

Go down towards the bottom of the page, and click on the Red -
Take a few minutes to view the IR 650 demo video. (5 minutes)

Just for edification;
If it indeed did use the MXM technology, and a graphics adapter card for a laptop, that is based on the Nvidia GeForce GO7600 GPU, it would look like this, and plug into an interface, (Connector) on the motherboard,

http://www.ebay.com/itm/nVIDIA-GeForce-Go7600-Go7600-N-A2-G73M-DD2-256MB-MXM-II-VGA-Card-35G1P5310-10-/330758557353?pt=PCC_Video_TV_Cards&hash=item4d02bf0ea9

(There is also a model with 128MB of graphics memory, besides the 256MB model shown above)

More in a Comment. Don't give up on increasing graphics 'power', just yet............................

Unitialized corrupt boot structure detected biohd-4 boot path


Apps like Acronis Disk Director Suite and Partition Magic
that might help because they can be booted outside the OS. Sometimes it just cannot be done without destroying the data on the drive. Try one of those!

"Call of Duty" runs in slow motion on my PC.


Hi thomas,

Upgrading video cards will definitely increase in performance. You asked whether you should upgrade your entire PC or just the card and that really depends on the hardware you are running. If all of your hardware just barely meets the requirements than upgrading the videocard WILL give you a noticeable improvement but obviously it will not be as good as getting a better CPU and more RAM as well as a new card.

A good measure of a cards performance is based on the series of cards it is from. Your Geforce is from the 6000 series of Nvidia cards, they have 7000, 8000, and even 9000 series cards atm.

I would recommend something like an XFX Geforce 9800 GTX+ series card with 512MB of onboard memory, or any other competing card in the 200$ price range. This will definitely give you an increase in performance, and is a very popular card.

Hope this helps and please take a second to rate!

Setting up dual monitors with NVIDIA 7300 GS Graphics Adapter


so...
your computer don't recognize your nvidia graphic card in PCI Express slot.
you are runing now with computer's integrated graphic card?
if so then you won't have dualview option. in this case it looks for me like you've installed in the wrong way your graphic card.

your NV GeForce 7300 GS has 2 video output?
if yes then you should have the option for 2 monitors on nVIDIA control panel (i have check my nVIDIA GeForce 7600gt and in my case this option is present but is enabled only if i connect the second monitor, so try do so)

you have installed the latest nVIDIA drivers from the official website? http://www.nvidia.com/Download/index.aspx?lang=en-us

check if your video card is corect installed start/run type in " devmgmt.msc ". it will open device manager and under the display adapter tab you should see what video card you use now.
