Question about HP Pavilion a1700n PC Desktop

Setting up dual monitors with NVIDIA 7300 GS Graphics Adapter

I have a HP Pavilion a1700n that originally came with Vista. I repartitioned the computer and now use Windows XP. I installed a NVIDIA graphics card into the PCI Express slot (GeForce 7300 GS) and the computer won't recognize the card. When I go into the NVIDIA control panel, dualview is not an option and neither is clone. The only display mode available is a single display, I don't have the software that came with the graphics card. I've uninstalled and installed the drivers for the card several times, nothing happens. I've tried going into BIOS to manually select the card but it doesn't do anything. I'm about to give up on the whole thing. HALP!

    I did install the drivers from the official NV website, my computer is running with integrated graphics card. How do I install it the right way? In the device manager it says the device is using nvidia 7300 GS but it's still running off of the motherboard.

So...
your computer don't recognize your nvidia graphic card in PCI Express slot.
you are runing now with computer's integrated graphic card?
if so then you won't have dualview option. in this case it looks for me like you've installed in the wrong way your graphic card.

your NV GeForce 7300 GS has 2 video output?
if yes then you should have the option for 2 monitors on nVIDIA control panel (i have check my nVIDIA GeForce 7600gt and in my case this option is present but is enabled only if i connect the second monitor, so try do so)

you have installed the latest nVIDIA drivers from the official website? http://www.nvidia.com/Download/index.aspx?lang=en-us

check if your video card is corect installed start/run type in " devmgmt.msc ". it will open device manager and under the display adapter tab you should see what video card you use now.

    ok.

    usualy every computer with an integrared video card, will automatically disable the integrated video card when you physical install a new videocard on AGP or into PCI Express slot.

    that make me think that you have install in wrong way your card.

    first check in your computer's bios if you have an option to enable or disable the PCI Express slot.

    if you have this option then enable it.

    check priority of your video card (onboard/pci express) and set "the primary video adapter" to PCI Express.



    then shut down your computer, disconnect power cord, and look at video card that you have installed.

    this must be well inserted into the PCI Express slot and secured. try to push a litle harder on that card, but be carefull... not to hard. if it is correct inserted you should hear a click.

    there are some usefull links wich learn you how to physical install a videocard.

Did you try installing and updating the driver of the graphics card dedicated to the operating system "VISTA" ? Sometimes there is some difference between vista's driver and XP's driver.
