I just bought an Acer computer with Vista. It has 2 graphics cards, onboard ATI 1250 and a nVidea 7300 SE right out of the box. I play war games, COD, CODII, MOHAA, MOHHAB, and afew others. I plugged my monitor into the 7300 SE card and it worked fine for a couple of days then went ape shit. I had to plug back into the motherboard graphics card to view. In the device manager it shows both display cards. On the properties of the 7300SE card it says that windows has stopped this device due to problem. I have tried uninstalling and reinstalling the driver for the 7300 SE but when I plug into it, I still get nothing, black screen.
same code43, I have NVIDIA GE Force 6100 and VGA ATIRadeonx1300/x1550 series,same problem

Re: error code 43
When going from the onboard Video to the Video card, on all the most computer I have seen,, you need to go into the BIOS setup screen and turn off the onboard graphics to avoid a software conflect, which it appears that you are having..

I'm not sure I follow all of waht you are doing and /or did however, this card requires a minimum 400w power supply so, make sure you have the power. It may or may not be a factor. These cards can be tricky sometimes and I will start by saying, the install should have gone in this order: Install the card, boot your system and insert your CD. Start by downloading all drivers and "utilities" from CD. You will not get all the bells and whistles taht come with the card unless you get them from the CD or, possibly from Sapphire, and reboot. Check in "programs and features" and device manager to make sure you see your device. Once you have done this, you can then upgarde your drivers from respective sites, AMD, Sapphire, etc. You definately have to unisatall all prior software that has anything to do with ATI/AMD prior to installing new software.You can do a custom uninstall and install here. At his point, I would go into "programs and features" and unistall all ATI/AMD software and start over. Any software from existing cards as well. You also need to reboot after each unistall or install. Where are you getting this 1250 from? Is it from the CD? This is alot to swallow and if I am missing something let me know. I can help you with the upgrade of the VGA driver nut, lets see if this works and, taht I am on the right track. Contact me at "add a comment". Dave
Be sure that your graphics card are compatible with your computer. Most household computers are Dell Dimension 2400's or other items in the Dell Dimension 2000 line. Also make sure that the graphics card is compatible with your operating system. Try Ati Radeon there are a very popular brand that work with almost any computer. A good low-end graphics card is the Ait VisionTek card.

How did you disconnect the onboard VGA?
The onboard VGA device must be disabled in the BIOS and the ATI graphics card inserted in the computer.
When you bootup it should default to a standard Windows VGA configuration, then install the ATI video driver o you can get high resolution graphics.
Uninstall both video cards, disable the integrated card in the bios, and then reinstall the stand alone video card. If you continue to have problems, please post what motherboard you use and what error code device manager gives.
Have you tried the windows update,usually for vista they have a built-in WDM drivers for ATI, and right now you may want to use that for the meantime if the computer did not recognize the exact model number also when using the windows update it you can check if microsoft has a new WDM driver for your video card.
The video card is a built-in video card on the mobo, right?
first of all you need to find out what your graphics card is eg intel onboard/ nvidea/ATI you need make and model I use Unidentified device driver search net and download when installed use to find type of video card note name and number (write down) go to google and search for them EG. nvidea 2345 drivers this is how you would put it in search engine Its the smae for any other drivers you may need in future
What you have to do, with your monitor still plugged into the onboard, is disable the onboard controller then restart.
Your screen will go to 640x480 during this process, but no worries.
Once you've logged back in to vista, open up your device manager again to make sure that your card is now enabled. If not, enable it. Also make sure that your cards' driver sortware is updated.
Switch your monitor over to the card now. No need to power down.
Open display properties, set your dual monitor setup to default on the single monitor that you do have plugged in and reset your screen resolution... and maybe even upgrade your monitor driver from generic to specific if you want.
The issue with nvidia cards isn't with vista or nvidia at all. It's a simple matter of driver conflict between the card and the onboard chip. You just have to tell vista that you'd like to make the card the priority adapter by disabling the onboard.
However, disabling the onboard DOES NOT make it unavalable to you. You can still utilize it in a dual monitor setup as a generic adapter without conflict.
