Question about Creative Labs Dxr2 Decoder Graphic Card

1 Answer

DXR2 DECODER DRIVERS FOR XP DOSEN'T ADD A NEW DISPLAY ADAPTER

HAVE ORIGINAL CD FOR W9X AND TRIED COMPATIBILITY MODE IN XP BUT THAT DIDN'T WORK.

FOUND POSTING ON "COMPUTING.NET" SITE THAT
INSTRUCTS TO GO TO DEVICE MANAGER SELECT MULTIMEDIA VIDEO CONTROLLER AND UPDATE THE DRIVER FROM THE WDM DIRECTORY OF THE EXPANDED "DVDEWUP.EXE (THE DXR2 W98 DRIVER FROM CREATIVE'S SITE). THIS INSTALLED THE"CREATIVE PC-DVD ENCORE WDM DEVICE UNDER SOUND AND VIDEO CONTROLLERS.

MY PROBLEM IS THAT ONCE INSTALLED I CAN'T SELECT THE DXR2 AS MY PRIMARY OR SECONDARY VIDEO OUTPUT IN DISPLAY PROPERTIES (IN FACT IT IS NOT EVEN SHOWN AS AN OPTION) AND THUS NO DUAL DISPLAY WITH CRT AND TV (S-VIDEO) OUT.

TO RESTATE: THE CARD IS RECOGNIZED AS A VIDEO CONTROLLER, BUT NOT AS A DISPLAY ADAPTER (WHICH WOULD ALLOW DUAL DISPLAY)

This might be a limitation of an older driver and lack of support to do multiple monitor display.

i once overcame this by using ati catalyst control center on a non ati card system

Having problems installing a Geforce fx5500 on my dell deminsion


sounds like yo had the same Problems that I had with my 5200 geforce The install did not go well. what was happening was the direct x was binding to the old mother board graphics system and not the new card . to make it rebind just change the refresh rate in the nvidia icon in your task bar . disable the display adapter from device manager for the motherboard graphics .put the card in the slot change the monitor cord boot up check you direct x by typing in run dxdiag and test directx to be sure it is running with your card you can also see that from the about nvidia you must have the driver for the card installed to do all this.. hope I helped  install the driver first then disable download latest drivers here http://www.nvidia.com/Download/index5.aspx?lang=en-us

I installed window xp when my display driver installed my screen is then flicering from that time.


Try to boot into VGA mode by hitting F8 as soon as POST boot screen has disappeared. If there is a possibility to uninstall through Add/Remove programs, do so. If not, then go to Device Manager and uninstall the driver there. Reboot and let Windows detect the device for itself. If it finds a driver by itself, let it install.

Display driver missing


If your OS is XP SP2, you can un install the Graphics card via device manager and on re boot let Windows new found hardware wizard pick it up and it should set up your Card itself, as the CD's drivers are probably not the latest XP SP2 compatible driver.

You could also go to the Graphics card's Manufacturer's Support site and download the latest XP compatible driver, or whatever OS's driver you require.

You can look here also: http://www.fixya.com/support/appian_graphics

Good luck.
