Question about Pine Technology XFX GeForce 9800GTX PCIE DUAL DVI DDR3 VGA, PCI Express Video Card

1 Answer

Internet Explorer fails to stay on top as does other websites.

OS is Windows Vista Ultimate. Cable Modem connected. When trying to bring up a browser or website, it appears for and instant and then disappears. Strangely, Outlook stays up as does Apples Safari, which is where I am now. I can get to any browser or website only through Safari.

    I am using  Apple Safari, which works OK. I can get to IE etc. from there. It does not solve my problem of why this happened, but I have a clue. It may be a virus. I am having a problem with McAfee. The dialog boxes come up blank.

    Thanks for your suggestions.

    IE in Windows Vista Ultimate disappeared. It has nothing to do with the Graphics Card. I may have to re-install Windows Which I am trying to avoid. I installed Mozilla Firefox which works fine, but I need IE for some applications.

Why is this graphic card having trouble getting signal to my monitor

Windows Vista generally isn't supported by Microsoft anymore. Along with WinXP and anything before that.

#2 Depending on what kind of connecting cable you have and monitor, my suspicions are even those are outdated.

It would be best to go to a Yard Sale or a Computer shop and buy a used system with at least Windows 7 installed in it. Even then, depending on when it was made it can be an old machine, just with win 7 on it.

Driver for spectra WF17

I am not sure if the drivers exist. The Graphics card seems old and the last Microsoft OS supported were Windows 2000 and XP. I dont own the card but I believe if you ever installed Windows 7 with the card above installed, you gonna end up with a Microsoft generic driver either from the OS itself or from Microsoft update site. Although that I dont think it is supported on Windows 7, but I would still suggest that you check Nvidia website for Windows 7 drivers for this Nvidia Graphics Chip/Card: GeForce 4 MX460. See if they are available and have them downloaded and set. If they worked, good, but if not, remove them. Please make sure you download the driver needed whether it was a 32 or 64bit referring to your OS installed. Good luck.

How do i speed up videos and stop buffering on my pc ?

To begin with all video will buffer. Buffering is kind of like getting a head start on the video being viewed. It is continuously being moved into memory making it available for processing.

To speed up your video, you have a few things you can consider:
  1. The amount of RAM you have in your system. You need at least 2GB of RAM for smooth performance in XP. For Vista or Windows 7, consider at least 3GB or 4GB.
  2. The amount of RAM on your graphics card. You need at least 256MB or more.
  3. The CPU or processor your computer has. You should have at least a 2.0 GHz or higher.
  4. If streaming video from the internet, your connection. I hope you are not trying to stream video on a dial-up modem. That would be difficult. Broadband is needed these days, either DSL or cable.
I hope this helps. Thanks for using Fixya.

My 8500gt graphic card doesnt have direct3d enable facility

You did the correct order of things. There is a diagnostic file that comes with directx that might help you. Go into WIndows Explorer and find windows\system323\dxdiag.exe. Just click on it and see if will help you. Let me know how things turn out.
