Try uninstalling the camera and disconnect it from the USB port. Then try re-installing the software and when it asks for you to plug in the camera, do so. I have corrected this problem with other Microsoft Cameras. Its worth a try. Hope this helps. Bud

I have a dell dimension 8300 and the factory monitor has horizontal lines flickering all over, with intermittent fuzzy haze. Do I need to replace my graphics card to fix this problem? I already downloaded...

Borrow another monitor / if the same download latest vid card drivers / install. (Check cable as well)

If it fixes it either get monitor repaired / replaced.

How to Update My Nvidia Graphics Card/Onboard Drivers.(HP, Dell , MSI , XFX ,...

It is recommended that you update your graphics card drivers at least once every two to three months. This will ensure that new software can use your graphics card to it's full potential.

There are two sets of drivers usually available for any given card namely : The manufacturer driver and the Nvidia driver. Many manufacturers can create the same card all based on the same Nvidia chipset on the card. Thus , there are no major differences between the different manufacturer's cards as they all use the same chipset and basic driver.

Thus you could theoretically use even a different manufacturer's driver for your card , but this is prevented using software.

This difference in the drivers are minute and relate to small details of the card operation.

A great misconception among computer users is that you can only use the driver from the manufacturer of your graphics card. This is completely untrue as the Nvidia drivers are updated more than most manufacturer's drivers and for me personally simply work better.

So now I will show you how to update your card from the Nvidia website.

#1 Identify the card in your computer.

Firstly you will have to identify your card if you don't know the model number. This can be done in three ways...If you know the model number , proceed to step 2.

  1. Look on the box if you have one for your model which is something like 9600gt / 8800gts / gtx275.f1b286a.jpg
  2. Open your side panel of your PC and have a look on the card itself for the model number.bead565.jpg
  3. Go to Control Panel - System - Device Manager - Display Adapters and your model should be displayed here if you have a previous version of the drivers installed.

For a laptop or onboard card , try googling either the laptop model number or the motherboard model number to determine the chipset model.

Now that you have determined the model of your card , we can proceed to step 2.

# 2 , Finding , Downloading and installing the correct driver.


Then Follow the following steps. I will use as an example the 9600gt for windows 7 32bit in English UK

You can also try using the self identification function on the website.

Select The Product , in this case a GeForce

Select the model series , in this case a 9000 series (the card is 9600 so it falls in the 9000 series)


Select your operating system , I'm using Win7 32bit


And finally select your preferred language.

Now hit the search button and this will bring up your download page.
Just hit the download button and the download will start.

Once the download completes , simply run the setup and restart your computer once this completes and you have a updated graphics card driver.

Please remember to rate this tip if you found it useful.

"Call of Duty" runs in slow motion on my PC.

Hi thomas,

Upgrading video cards will definitely increase in performance. You asked whether you should upgrade your entire PC or just the card and that really depends on the hardware you are running. If all of your hardware just barely meets the requirements than upgrading the videocard WILL give you a noticeable improvement but obviously it will not be as good as getting a better CPU and more RAM as well as a new card.

A good measure of a cards performance is based on the series of cards it is from. Your Geforce is from the 6000 series of Nvidia cards, they have 7000, 8000, and even 9000 series cards atm.

I would recommend something like an XFX Geforce 9800 GTX+ series card with 512MB of onboard memory, or any other competing card in the 200$ price range. This will definitely give you an increase in performance, and is a very popular card.

Hope this helps and please take a second to rate!

Setting up dual monitors with NVIDIA 7300 GS Graphics Adapter

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?

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.

1 Answer it a 32 bit version or 64 bit.

I dont' work for bestbuy, so i can't tell what the hardware inside this pc is, only looking inside the pc or the hardware manuals a technician can work.
However, to know what kind of windows is installed, you don't need to be an expert, Windows XP 32 bits only shows the logo( WINDOWS XP ), unlike Windows XP 64 bits, this appears as:
( WINDOWS XP X64 ) when windows is starting.
Also you can go to START - CONTROL PANEL - double click on SYSTEM, there you will see some of your system specs.

About the Graphics card, the most qualified to tell you that is Nvidea Manufacturer itself:
See for yourself.

Hope this help you.
Good luck.
