Question about ASUS Graphics Cards

1 Answer

ASUS en7600GT flashing screen.

While installing the nVidia software drivers for the 7600gt the screen starts to flash on and off involentarily. The most i am able to do to stabalize the dispay is use a restore point that removes the drivers. Is there anyway to get the display drivers working in a stable condidion?

    The point is not to get the card to work on another system. The point is to get working accelerated graphics for the existing system and if the ASUS en7600GT doesnt work then im throwing it out and just getting something better.


    Thx for trying to help though.

I did not understand if the problem is in the exact moment of the driver installation or after. so i will post for both questions.
case 1: the display turn on/off when the driver is installed and you did not try it after the installation: in this case there is no need to worry because after installing the drivers it almost always happens that you get that effect. it happens because while installing the driver the installation is changing allot of the default display parameters and settings resulting in short flickers of the screen it should work perfectly normal after you restart your system.
case 2: in this case the display continues to flicker even after you restarted the computer after the driver installation in which case i would recommend installing the latest driver from the nvidia website [ http://www.nvidia.com/Download/index.aspx?lang=en-us ]out dated drivers may conflict with more modern day software or even some updates to the other software on the computer.
good luck.

    well if this happens only after the driver installation and system restore "fixes" its safe to say that its the driver that isn't doing its job well. did you try installing a less up-to-date driver? it might just be the latest one causing all the trouble

  • malky_david Mar 03, 2009

    i see. at this point im not so sure what might be the problem. is there anyway you could connect the card on another system?

  • malky_david Mar 04, 2009

    i the point of connecting it on another system isn't to have it working there. its to see if the card is working at all so you'd know if the problem is the software or the hardware or just the graphics card. if it works on another system the problem isnt the card itself.

How can I get a geforce 7600 gt graphics card to work in a el1333g-01w emachine


1) Did you install the drivers off of the installation CD disk, FIRST?
THEN physically install the graphics card?

If not you get a Driver Conflict.

When a device is installed, (Such as a graphics card, for one example), Windows breaks it's neck to find matching Drivers.

If you install the graphics card first, THEN the drivers, Windows will have already looked for THE drivers, and not found them.

Windows will then go through it's THOUSANDS of generic one size fit's all drivers, and match drivers up to the GeForce 7600GT graphics card.

This = No

Windows: "Which drivers do I use? These or THESE?"

Driver conflict.


IF, this is what has transpired you need to;

A) Computer on a table, computer unplugged from power, computer case open. FOLLOW Anti-Static Precautions. Unplug the monitor from the 7600GT. Remove the GeForce 7600GT.

B) Leave the case open.
Press, and hold the Power On button in for a count of 10 seconds. Let go.
Do this procedure 2 more times.

(IF,
1) You press the Power On button in, and the Power On LED light comes on, then after a few seconds goes out,...

2) And the same scenario happens again for the Second time, you press, and hold the Power On button in,....

3) See if it lights up again for the Third time. If so, hold the Power On button in again, until it goes out.

You are draining residual power. Don't worry about the CMOS Battery at present )

This action resets BIOS Setup back to the factory default settings.
In otherwords back to the Nvidia GeForce 6100 integrated graphics on the motherboard.

It also clears CMOS Error Codes.

C) Plug the monitor into the VGA port, in the I/O area at the back of the computer.
Plug the computer into power.

WAIT 1 minute, turn the computer on.

Windows should load. After Windows is fully loaded, put the Installation CD Disk in the optical drive, and load ALL software.
(Drivers, Graphics User Interface, etc)

Let the computer run for a few minutes.
Now turn the computer off normally. Unplug from power. Observe Anti-Static Precautions, and reinstall that GeForce 7600GT.

Plug the monitor into the 7600GT. Plug the computer into power.
WAIT 1 minute, turn the computer on.

Should get in the taskbar at the bottom, "Found new hardware", and perhaps another one, "Found GeForce 7600GT device"

Immediately go to the Nvidia graphics user interface, and open it up.
Set the graphics card to it's optimum performance.

(Also make SURE the Screen Resolution is set to what the monitor uses.

Right-click on empty area of desktop screen.
Left-click on Properties at the bottom of the list.
Left-click on the Settings tab.
Move the Screen resolution slider to the appropriate screen resolution.
Left-click on Apply.
Then left-click on OK.

Also make sure in the box under Color quality, that it states
Highest (32 bit) Use the blue down arrow to the right of the box, if it isn't. Left-click on Highest (32 bit)

For additional questions post in a Comment.
Would appreciate it if you would reply back in a Comment, as to your findings.

Regards,
joecoolvette

{To add;
Sometimes a computer has to be shut all the way down, after all of the above, and wait 60 seconds.
Then turn the computer on.

Sometimes you have to do this twice. Then Windows and BIOS catch on }

Certain video cards are only compatible with certain processors on motherboards. AMD CPUs work with Nvidia and Intel CPUs work with certain graphics cards also. Are you sure it's even compatible?

Hello there, I am the Expert that will be helping you today, my name in damnor01.

Welcome to Fixya.

Use my published guide, it is entitled How to install Graphics Drivers, Nvidia and AMD Radeon!!!

You need to download the drivers for your Nvidia based Graphics Card.

Ensure that the card is installed in the PC-Express 16X slot closest to the Processor.
Install as many fans as your computer chassis allows, use 120mm fans if you can. I recommend a power supply of at least 550Watts for this Graphics card. Cooler Maser Extreme Power Plus will work well.

The problems you are experiencing are most likely driver related.
Install Direct X versions 9.0c and 10 and 11
You must install them all.

Regards

I just downloaded windows 7 and updated my drivers but it wont recognize my video card


Very strange. Windows 7 detects all graphics cards :S

Try Windows Update again, do a Custom scan and see if it comes up.

If it doesn't, you can download the drivers from here.

Best of luck!

Vertical lines at BIOS splash screen


Is your power supply rated to hand the board and the graphics card and all the other hardware?

Did the issue star with the video card?

try removing the extras like the CD drive and any other PCI devices and just putting the graphics card in and whats needed to boot the computer.

Also, reseat the graphiocs card.

also try installing just the drivers for the video card without any of the over clock software.

Try resetting your BIOS by disconnecting the power cabel and removing the BIOS battery and waiting a minute, put back in and restart/

Please help asus en7600gt 256mb and intel 925 dualcore


I am not familiar with the Smart Doctor software, but it seems to me that the software is having problems. If you don't show any symptoms such as random errors on your system or the system is shutting down, I would especially say that the software is wrong.

I would go through the system bios, which is accessed by hitting delete when you start the computer (you can continuously tap the delete key if you are unsure of when to precisely hit it) In there, you can look at the system health status and determine exactly what you motherboard is reading the temperature at, then compare that to what t the software is telling you.
