    Yes, I am running XP. I'll give that a go now, thanks.

    I'm going through the same issue, however this started to act up in Linux as well as Windows! This is definitely a video card related issue, and is definitely caused by activating the TV output.

I bought my nvidia 8600gt + 1gb one and a half


hi if you haven't already done so the take out the TV card, then boot com up in safe mode, to boot the com up in safe mode you keep pressing the F8 key on boot up, the resolution will be wrong but what you are trying to diagnose is if the Nvindia card driver is corrupt, if the picture is ok then it will be the driver, if this is the case you need to delete the driver in Device manager and reinstall,

My game wont work, it is Star Wars KOTON2


The mobility series from ATI Radeon are not suported by the game... i know that not even KOTOR 1 works with mobilyty cards. That is a thechnical problem you have due to the video chip. You can try to change it but since it is a mobility series it means you have a notebook computer... you will have some hard days rtying to find a video card for a notebook. Try at a repair center for laptops, maybe they have a solution. Note that the MOBILITY ans nVidia Geforce GO are not supported by many games... it's not worth it to mention that INTEL GMAs Graphic Cards are absolete for gaming. Try a ATI HD series or better an nVidia Geforce 7600GT 7800GT 8600GT or better. THe game works even on ATI 9200 and nVidia FX 5200 but there were never put in notebooks

Vedio card


Nvidia card
PCI-E (express)
For example:

Depends on what you want to do? do you play games? or just browse the internet? If you dont play any games or use any 3d programs, you will do fine with a cheap card nvidia 8400 for example


If you play games
8600GT or 9600GT OR NEWER.

Take one you can afford.

Blank screen using Vista x64 with Nvidia Forceware Drivers 8600GT


Most like the sound card you have is not compatible with Windows Vista. You need to check the manufacturers website to see if there is any patch for Windows Vista

8800gt black screen


Hi Juan016, you have done everything right. I'd say the 8800GT is bad & return it for a refund. Run the 8600GT & the NVIDIA 6100 at the same time. If you check the middle of page 9 in your manual. NOTE: It states; if a PCI-E is inserted the bios will automatically run the PCI-E card. (No need to make a bios setting change).
It also says if you change the setting in the bios to, OnChip and PCIe VGA, the motherboard should run both. Depending what amount of memory you set the NVIDIA to run with. Once in windows check the amount of total memory the NVIDIA or 8600GT reports.
Example: You set the NVIDIA to use 64MB & the 8600GT has 512MB than the NVIDIA or the 8600GT should show 576MB. Its not that uncommon one buys a bad video card.
Reading the manual & windows not seeing the 8800GT tells me the bios did not see the 8800GT card. The card is bad. You’re doing just fine.
