Question about MSI G4MX4000-T128 GeForce MX4000 128MB DDR AGP 8X Video Card with VGA, TV-Out: MS-8936 (Retail) Graphic Card

1 Answer

Video card Identification

My last harddrive crashed and I lost all data.. I have installed a new hard drive and put windows on it. I need to install the drivers for my video card but I dont know what video card I have.. When I look at the card itself all it says is MSI and doesnt say what type of card it is. Also because the drivers are not installed dxdiag doesnt show what video card it is.. how can I determine what type of video card I have?

First, you can go to your CONTROL PANEL via the start menu, then double click SYSTEM.  From there goto HARDWARE and click the DEVICE MANAGER button.  Once in DEVICE MANAGER, click the + symbol next to display adapters and you should see your video card.  It may not list the make and model, but you can then right click the video card (display adapter) and choose UPDATE DRIVER.  It's possible that Windows will automatically find the correct drivers, but I doubt it since it did not install them when installing Windows.
Here are some other solutions.
Goto http://www.lavalys.com/ and download Everest.  This utility should give you the make and model of the video card.
If not, then:
Goto http://www.g4tv.com/techtvvault/features/8466/Free_Download_of_the_Day_Belarc_Advisor.html and download Belarc Advisor which should also give you the make and model.
Hope this helps :)

Vertical lines at BIOS splash screen


Is your power supply rated to hand the board and the graphics card and all the other hardware?

Did the issue star with the video card?

try removing the extras like the CD drive and any other PCI devices and just putting the graphics card in and whats needed to boot the computer.

Also, reseat the graphiocs card.

also try installing just the drivers for the video card without any of the over clock software.

Try resetting your BIOS by disconnecting the power cabel and removing the BIOS battery and waiting a minute, put back in and restart/

Re-installing video drivers after Windows crash


You will be fine if you simply insert the disk and follow the instructions. If you're still uncomfortable you may be able to find step-by-step instructions if you go to the ATI website and look around in their support section.
