Question about HP Pavilion a1700n PC Desktop
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!
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.
