Reinstalled OS and downloaded Video drivers from Dell. Will not complete installation and reboots constantly. Tried downloading updated driver from Nvidia, but no luck on that one either.


Hey, did you first uninstall the former driver before installing the updated one? You needed to delete all the initial failed drivers. From that explanation, If your card works fine (Was it working well before?), then you must have installed the wrong operating system drivers, so make sure you have the right OS drivers. Tell if things fail...

Nvidia geo force failure


The best place to purchase the Nvidia GeForce Go 7800 for a Dell Inspiron 9400/E1705 laptop is eBay. If available on eBay, the price could range from $230-$300 and search for "Dell 9400 video" or the card name. Some eBay sellers will give you a $50 or so credit, if you purchase a card from them. The video card can be downgraded (ATI Mobility Radeon® X1400 HyperMemory)
or upgraded (NVIDIA GeForce Go 7900 GS or GTX). Also, you can try parts-people.com, but they're typically more expensive and reliable.

Yes, the video card can be repaired in most cases. Search eBay for Nvidia GeForce Go 7800 repairs.

I know my card is bad but where do i get a new 1


If it can be resolved by a driver. Got to support.dell.com. Enter the service tag of the system and look for the nvidia driver for your system. If it's really bad call Dell. Give them the service tag or express service code of the system. They should be able to give you the correct part number of the expansion card that you need. Talk to technical support first to get the correct part number and ask to be transferred to their spare parts department.

Can not load drivers into a (GeForce FX 5200/5600) VGA Card.


goto nvidia website and download GeForce FX 5200/5600 drivers and install drivers if you still can't install please backup all your files then redo you operating system from scratch then install drivers you downloaded from nvidia first then the rest of your drivers for your board.

note: when you have the correct drivers for your card the screen will go blank then return to normal.

good luck on this one
