Windows 8 graphics card installation problem


I think you are installing the wrong one. Try going to the device manager and refresh it to see if the hardware is detected. If yes, then look for a question mark or exclamation point to make sure that the generic driver is not yet installed. if installed then try scanning your computer with RadarSync to make sure that it's up-to-date.

My game will not play

Please install first the driver of your video card..

If that did not work, then try this:

Open your cpu, disconnect your video card from your motherboard, clean the contact point with moisten cloth and let it dry.. reseat the video card properly on the motherboard... connect the cable from the monitor to the video card..turn on the computer.. on the task bar a message will pop up: found new hardware; your hardware is installed and ready to use.. if that appear then your video card is ready, and resolution can be change..

There is also one reason why your video card cannot be detected.. Your system could be using an integrated graphics controller which your windows operating system provided for your motherboard video drivers.. you need first to delete that so that your video card will be detected and use by your motherboard.. how? try these steps..
1. On My Computer, right click and select properties.
2. Select Hardware tab, and click Device Manager.
3. On the list of device manager, click View menu and select Devices by type
4. Double click Display Adapters, to display the list of connected graphics adapter.
5. Disable the graphics adapter listed, by right clicking of the file name and select uninstall.
6. Now close any program and shutdown your computer..
7 Connect your video card to the motherboard and turn on your computer. Your computer will run its add new hardware device , just be ready with your driver files..

If you can give me the full detail of your video card and the operating system you are using then I can help you find the right driver for your video card..

If this help you fix your problem, would you please rate this solution...much thanks..

What is the problem i reformat already my computer i install all the drivers when i it welcome to windows it always hang... it stop in a blue blank screen.. opening of the windows... what solution can u...

You have told that blue screen comes only if you connect your nvidia display/graphics card. Usually Blue screen comes if there is some problem with the hardware or due to incompactible hardware drivers. Remove the nvidia card from you system. Reinstall your system and then install all the drivers present in your motherboard cd. After that go to nvidia website, download the latest driver for your nvidia display/graphics card driver. Now connect your nvidia hardware back to your motherboard. Before that clean the dust particles present in the motherboard connecting terminals, if any. Now boot your system into safe mode. Restart your system into normal mode, install the latest driver downloaded for your nvidia hardware. Now everything should work fine. If you get bluescreen again, remove the card from system, restart into safe mode, uninstall the driver. Check the hardware in someother system, to detect wheather the problem is with your nvidia card or not. I hope this will help you out.

Install HD3870 graphic card

Follow these steps:

Uninstall current graphics card drivers. Before you install your new card, you'll need to uninstall your current graphics card's drivers to avoid any potential conflicts. Right-click My Computer and select Properties. Under the Hardware tab, find the button to open the Device Manager. Your graphics card should be listed under the Display Adapter heading. Double-click the name of your graphics card to open a properties window for your current card. Last step: Under the Driver tab, click the Uninstall button.

Remove old card. Turn off your PC and unplug it from the wall. Open the case Make sure you first ground yourself by first touching a metal part of your PC case or by wearing an antistatic wrist strap. (Grounding yourself will prevent you from getting shocked and from unintentionally damaging your PC's components.) If you are replacing a graphics card, you'll need to remove a small screw attached to the back plate prior to taking out the card.

Install new card. It wouldn't hurt to page through your new card's instruction manual at this point. Then, take your new graphics card out of its foil wrapper and slide it into your motherboard's slot. Press down firmly with even force until it is securely in place (your system won't boot up unless the card is in all the way). Screw it into the back plate and close up your case.

Install new drivers. Turn on your PC and install the drivers. Windows XP should automatically recognize the new hardware and walk you through the installation wizard. If Windows doesn't detect the card, click Settings from the Start menu. Open the Control Panel and click Add Hardware. From there, a wizard will help you install the new drivers from the CD that came bundled with your new card. It's a good idea to check the graphic card vendor's Web site for more up-to-date drivers, just in case the vendor has released drivers since manufacturing your card. Once you've downloaded the drivers, simply restart your PC. Now, you're ready to start gaming.

If this doesnt work, then your card is BAD.
