PNY GeForce GT440 crashes every time I play a video game.


Hello try to renew the graphic driver from here:

http://www.nvidia.com/Download/index.aspx?lang=en-us

By selecting the model, and your windows system.

You can also use the auto find function.

By installing a small bit of software.

Maybe your power supply is too small for gaming performance
consider to upgrade that, if the driver update does not work.
I suggest a 500 watt PSU, so the graphic does not runs out of power.

Good luck

Can't install drivers for GeForce GT 430. "Graphics Adapter Not Found."


I am assuming that your PC is working alright connected to the onboard graphics port.
Make sure any supplementary power connectors to your video card are in place, and the card is firmly inserted into the PCIE slot.
If you try these two items with no results, you might try installing the card in a known working PC. It could be a problem with the card itself.

The PNY Nvidia Quadro 420 video card will only recognize on monitor. It is installed in a Dell T3500, Xeon processor, running Windows XP 64 Bit version.


I'm not sure what your question is but, you will get a picture without software however, video and audio may not match up and system will probably crash alot, requiring manual shutdown and restart. If you have an installation cd, this is teh best place to start getting your drivers and bells and whistles that come with your card(utilities) your graphics driver can then be upgraded through Nvidia. If your are having installation problems there could be a couple of reasons for this. If you had prior Nvidia software and did not uninstall it that could give you a problem, If you tried to update your graphics driver without uninstalling the prior software first, this causes problems.

This is Pny's download site. The graphics drivers for Win XP 64 bit are available.
What I recommend is, goto programs and features and see if your PNY/Nvidia software is there. If your not happy with drivers, uninstall them. If they are not there run your cd, make sure download is finished, then restart system. Check in programs and features now and see if your software is there. If you do not have the installation cd then download form PNY. Any further graphics upgrades I, would then get from Nvidia.

If you have a question or if I'm barking up the wrong tree, let me know at "add a comment".
PS-I can't find what power rating is required for your card but I would guess minimum allowable would be 400w and, power cord must be hooked up for card to work.

Since instslling 8400 gs graphics card click on windows shut down it does then it reboots like you pushed the restart botton any ideas


It sounds like your machine is suffering from what is known as a "Panic." Don't worry, it is no reason for you to panic. What seems to be happening is that when you select "Shut Down," Windows instructs the graphics card and the software that controls it (called a "driver") to shut itself down. In the event that the graphics card fails or the "drivers" that control it fail, Windows crashes and the only way it knows to deal with that is to restart the machine. It is coincidence that whatever is causing this crash is a result of the shutdown procedure.

Here are some steps you can take to fix it:
Update your graphics drivers: Windows XP
32bit: Windows Vista, Windows 7
64bit: Windows Vista, Windows 7
If you don't know 32bit or 64bit, you are probably using 32bit

If that doesn't fix it then it is likely a problem with the card itself.
  • Try removing and reinserting the card. Make sure that the connector is seated completely.
  • Make sure that there is little or no dust in the fan. Heat can cause many issued in computer components. Use a can of compressed air to clean it out.
  • If all else fails, try to return the graphics card to your retailer if it has been under 30-days and you have a receipt. You may also attempt to contact PNY and see if it is eligible for warranty replacement through them.
If you cannot get a replacement through your retailer or PNY, see if you have a friend or co-worker that can loan you a graphics card temporarily. We are going to confirm a hardware issue before I instruct you to commit to purchasing a new graphics card.
  • Remove your graphics card
  • Install the borrowed graphics card
  • Restart your computer and then replicate the cause for the problem (selecting "Shut Down")
  • If the symptom remains (it reboots instead of shutting down), then the graphics card hardware is not the problem.
  • If the symptom is resolved (the computer shuts down instead of restarting), then your graphics card is faulty and needs to be replaced.

I'm having a problem with my new graphics card


camocrazy:
-Make sure that the video card is properly seated. and you have installed all the latest drivers and patches of this card from?
http://www.nvidia.com/object/winvista_x86_163.75.html
try to play games now and if the problem still exist then do:

-At this stage I would recommend just to blame the card's software (drivers) uninstall all drivers and software partinent to this video card. Restart the machine and play the game for a while, see if your monitor crashes. If still does crashes then its the OS.

-Simply uninstall the graphics card from the PC and check if the perfomance of games effect your video. If it still does effect then there is a problem with OS.

Finally I would suggest to simply install the card install the latest patches and drivers from the website of the manufacturer and restart your machine if it works then we can blame faulty driver and software.
-Also please check the manufacturers website of any known issues with this particular card with Vista.

Hope that helped!
