Can't get driver to load/card won't work

Machine is running win98SE I installed card, went to bios and set it to display pci first. Had forceware 81.98 on desktop to load. During setup it says "no nvidia chip found on this system" and setup fails. In my Aida program (component id) it says this card is Nvidia Riva tnt2 m64 pci........ So I downloaded riva driver from nvidia site that says it's for all OS. It won't install either. Am I doing something wrong in install, is the card bad, or could it just be incompatible?

Re: can't get driver to load/card won't work

I did a little research for you and found you are not alone in having this problem. It appears this issue arises from the use of the newer drivers. Try an older version driver, making sure to first remove the previously installed driver, until you find one that works. Here is a link i found where the user reports success. Windows 9x/Me: And finally, from , a user reports this (for WinXP): "I was able to download a driver for the NVidia TNT2 from the NVIDIA website, but you have to go to the frequently asked questions (FAQ) section to get the link to the driver that works for the TNT2. Here is the link: The driver is from November 1994. It will, among other things, provide a host of resolutions, including the previously un-available 1068 x 1050 required for 22" widescreen monitors. Hope this helps. Good luck!" Good Luck!

My graphics card does not show up on my Device Manager

I had just run into the same problem while installing my new graphics card earlier today. This is what I did to fix it:

1. Uninstall the new driver for the new card, if you can, in control panel if it installed.

2. Reinstall the new driver.

3. Go to Device Manager and UNINSTALL, not disable, UNINSTALL the on-board card. Don't worry this won't kill anything. It will ask you to restart your computer. Click yes.

4. While the computer is restarting and on the shut down screen for windows unplug the monitor cord from the onboard card and plug it into the new card.

5. Wait for windows to boot up and load the new drivers. It should be working with the correct drivers.

If it takes more than 8 minutes for anything to come on the screen(icons, login screen, etc.) reboot your computer again.

Setup dual-boot disks, one loads VGA instead of GeForce 6200

You should enter Bios setup when restarting and check that it says AGP or PCI for video display. You can then go to Start then Run and type in msconfig. Go through the list for the startup menu and make sure that NVIDIA is displayed with a checkmark.
When you installed the new driver, also make sure that you disabled the default VGA driver too. You may have to check that out. If both are running there will be conflict. Any questions, please don't hesitate.

Sapphire HD2400 PRO 512M - Doesn't seems to be working

For windows to work, it needs the card's drivers to display properly. The bios will display, and the beginning of windows load messages will show, but then it switches to the installed display driver. Take the card out, and use the old display method, and load the drivers for the new card. Then set the screen resolution to 800x600 and the shutdown, and install the new card. The bootup should go correctly, and once the new drivers are in, then set the resolution desired.
