A stupid question: After you installed the new card, did you switch your monitor to the new video connector? I have "fixed" this problem for several customers in the past. There is also the possibility the video card is not compatible with something on the system board chipset (it happens sometimes, not all hardware is 100% compatible), or you just have a bad card.

    Turning off the onboard graphics is done by going into the BIOS settings and finding the appropriate screen. On most Compaqs it's done by pressing the DEL key after you turn the power on. Some of them may require you press one of the function keys, so look at the message on the screen if DEL doesn't work. The system board usually autodetects the new graphic card and uses that one, but maybe this board is different. That's why I didn't mention it before.

..need drivers for old computer....


t_m_conway,

You can download the drivers to the computer you are using now.
One at a time. Keep them in one folder, where you know where they are at.


Then burn them to a disk. Many use thumb drives, but I'll pass.

Put the disk in the 'affected' computers optical drive. (CD/DVD drive)
Go to My Computer. Double-click on the drive letter, that corresponds to the optical drive.

One at a time, double-click on each file name. You are installing each driver, one at a time.

When you double-click on the individual driver file, there will be 3 small windows that come up; one at a time, and in order.

At the bottom of the 3 small windows, click on Next, Next, and Finish.
Then restart the computer.
(Start > Turn Off Computer > Restart)

Now go back, and Double-click on the next driver file. Install it.
And so on, until all driver files needed, are installed.

I appreciate you stated -
"Compaq Presario AMD Athlon 64 GE force 6150 LE"

,but in all due respect it doesn't state what is actually needed.
To break it down on what you stated,

1) Compaq - Computer manufacturer name
2) Presario - Model name
3) AMD - Processor, motherboard chipset, and graphics card manufacturer.

4) Athlon 64 - A line of AMD processors

5) GeForce 6150LE
Graphics chipset information.
The Nvidia GeForce 6150LE is a type of Integrated Graphics.

Integrated Graphics is also known as OnBoard Graphics.
ON the motherBOARD.

Indicates for one, that the graphics chipset is soldered directly to the motherboard, and not a separate graphics adapter card; which is removable.
Therefore replaceable. (Upgrade)

What is needed here, t_m_conway, is the model number.

This can be found on the Back of the computer, in a white Service Tag.
For Compaq computers, and HP computers, it is the Product Number that is needed. Model number information is contained in it, also.

P/N = Product Number.

'Armed' with this information I can guide you step by step, and not post a bunch of generic 'prattle', as I have above.

It is my belief that once you see an example, detailed out on here; that it will become sparkling clear as how to proceed.

How can I get a geforce 7600 gt graphics card to work in a el1333g-01w emachine


1) Did you install the drivers off of the installation CD disk, FIRST?
THEN physically install the graphics card?

If not you get a Driver Conflict.

When a device is installed, (Such as a graphics card, for one example), Windows breaks it's neck to find matching Drivers.

If you install the graphics card first, THEN the drivers, Windows will have already looked for THE drivers, and not found them.

Windows will then go through it's THOUSANDS of generic one size fit's all drivers, and match drivers up to the GeForce 7600GT graphics card.

This = No

Windows: "Which drivers do I use? These or THESE?"

Driver conflict.


IF, this is what has transpired you need to;

A) Computer on a table, computer unplugged from power, computer case open. FOLLOW Anti-Static Precautions. Unplug the monitor from the 7600GT. Remove the GeForce 7600GT.

B) Leave the case open.
Press, and hold the Power On button in for a count of 10 seconds. Let go.
Do this procedure 2 more times.

(IF,
1) You press the Power On button in, and the Power On LED light comes on, then after a few seconds goes out,...

2) And the same scenario happens again for the Second time, you press, and hold the Power On button in,....

3) See if it lights up again for the Third time. If so, hold the Power On button in again, until it goes out.

You are draining residual power. Don't worry about the CMOS Battery at present )

This action resets BIOS Setup back to the factory default settings.
In otherwords back to the Nvidia GeForce 6100 integrated graphics on the motherboard.

It also clears CMOS Error Codes.

C) Plug the monitor into the VGA port, in the I/O area at the back of the computer.
Plug the computer into power.

WAIT 1 minute, turn the computer on.

Windows should load. After Windows is fully loaded, put the Installation CD Disk in the optical drive, and load ALL software.
(Drivers, Graphics User Interface, etc)

Let the computer run for a few minutes.
Now turn the computer off normally. Unplug from power. Observe Anti-Static Precautions, and reinstall that GeForce 7600GT.

Plug the monitor into the 7600GT. Plug the computer into power.
WAIT 1 minute, turn the computer on.

Should get in the taskbar at the bottom, "Found new hardware", and perhaps another one, "Found GeForce 7600GT device"

Immediately go to the Nvidia graphics user interface, and open it up.
Set the graphics card to it's optimum performance.

(Also make SURE the Screen Resolution is set to what the monitor uses.

Right-click on empty area of desktop screen.
Left-click on Properties at the bottom of the list.
Left-click on the Settings tab.
Move the Screen resolution slider to the appropriate screen resolution.
Left-click on Apply.
Then left-click on OK.

Also make sure in the box under Color quality, that it states
Highest (32 bit) Use the blue down arrow to the right of the box, if it isn't. Left-click on Highest (32 bit)

For additional questions post in a Comment.
Would appreciate it if you would reply back in a Comment, as to your findings.

Regards,
joecoolvette

{To add;
Sometimes a computer has to be shut all the way down, after all of the above, and wait 60 seconds.
Then turn the computer on.

Sometimes you have to do this twice. Then Windows and BIOS catch on }

ASUS en7600GT flashing screen.


i did not understand if the problem is in the exact moment of the driver installation or after. so i will post for both questions.
case 1: the display turn on/off when the driver is installed and you did not try it after the installation: in this case there is no need to worry because after installing the drivers it almost always happens that you get that effect. it happens because while installing the driver the installation is changing allot of the default display parameters and settings resulting in short flickers of the screen it should work perfectly normal after you restart your system.
case 2: in this case the display continues to flicker even after you restarted the computer after the driver installation in which case i would recommend installing the latest driver from the nvidia website [ http://www.nvidia.com/Download/index.aspx?lang=en-us ]out dated drivers may conflict with more modern day software or even some updates to the other software on the computer.
good luck.

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.

7600gt ?


Dear cgb1981; A lot of times graphic cards do conflict if one of the drivers gets corrupted. Try this: Reinstall the driver for the 7600gt card from the CD it came with. Most CDs will Auto-run upon insertion into the drive. It will detect the 7600gt. Click to install driiver. If that doesn't work, check BIOS and choose DEFAULTS for all screens. But the driver is the first culprit. Good luck.
