Cant boot vista after installing graphics card.

Had been gettin the ''driver has stopped responding'' error for ages after windows downloaded an update one day, so i formatted my computer to try and fix problem after going through hundreds of ''recommended'' steps. Anyway, i downloaded all the original drivers the computer came with off the manufacturers website but when i try and install my graphics card driver, on restarting the computer vista will not boot, just goes to a black screen after you see the windows bar going across. any help
Btw computer is a Compaq Presario SR5139UK but it does not seem to have it in your product description.

Windows vista, microsoft has stopped it from running. ATI Radeon HD 3200 Graphics, code error 43


this is because the drivers for the graphics card are reporting back that the card is failing. This may not be the case but might be corrupted drivers. uninstall the card through the device manager and then scan for hardware changes so windows reinstalls it. if that doesn't work, download the drivers from the ati website and try again. make sure that all fans and heatsinks are clean and unblocked using a brush and compressed air (not the vacuum cleaner). if all this fails, it may be the card.

I am trying to run a very old game on my windows vista 64 bits but an error pops out saying: your pc has no graphics accelerator


try running it in dosbox www.dosbox.com it works for a lot of games, or it might be that your graphics card just isn't good enough, but as you say its a old game, i cant see how the graphics card would be inferior, you do have the latest drivers installed for your graphics card, don't you?

No video output from atapi dvd rw after OS reinstall, cd rw ok


>> VGA controller (vga compatible) error in the device manager

Windows has not found a "good" device-driver for the "integrated" video-controller on your motherboard; it is using the "generic" adapter.

So, trying to download the "SIS Mirage Graphics" software is an attempt by Windows to download a "specific" device-driver that matches your video-adapter hardware.

You might try installing an add-in video-card, to see if Windows will install the correct device-driver, and still boot-up correctly.

Otherwise, take the computer to a qualified technician, for trouble-shooting about your boot-up problem.

HP 873n, had Display driver nvlddmkm error, now won't boot


This is a know issue and there is know known solution to this. My take on this is heating problem and vista power management.

its a big mess and different things work for different people. My take would be to update the nvidia drivers and hange the power settings in vista. Control Panel> power management> balanced.

For more possible fixes see http://i.nconspicuo.us/2007/03/28/nvidia-nvlddmkm-vista-driver-fix-here-is-the-solution/

Driver Install INF Error


Physically uninstall the 4850. Now download and install "Revo uninstaller" (FREE). Use this tool to completely uninstall any and all software associated with the 4850. Next run system restore and restore your computer to a date prior to your original physical installation of the card. The computer should now re-start to it's condition before the 4850. Now you can begin a PROPER installation by first installing the SOFTWARE that came with the card and following the instructions to install the card afterward. Remember, Windows likes software FIRST.

P.S. If you want to run with the big dogs - carry a map.

Installing Problems


It's a hardware incompatibility with windows vista. for example your graphics card on your Inspiron might not be fully supported in windows vista and your Laptop's graphics card is supported by Vista. Most of the times we can find this incompatibility is with graphics cards. Download and install the newest drivers for your inspiron's graphics card. I have seen your inspiron has an ATI Radeon X1300 graphics card. The windows Vista drivers can be downloaded here http://game.amd.com/us-en/drivers_catalyst.aspx?p=vista32/common-vista32
