MSI PCIE-16 Video Card needs older drivers to support older games
I can't get an older PC game to run on the MSI NX7300LE video card, called the manufacturer of the game, and they told me I need to get an older video driver from about 2001 to support this video game....HELLLP !!

im in the car forum , why is this here? i truly dont know....... but if true, answers will be hard to find.
that RC4 card is old and slow.... id computers too, and can answer. the card you have , uses what is called a buss. what you do is , read the mobo spec for you PC and find which expansion slots you have. then match the video card to that slot. some E-machines (warmart junk) have no slot. msi page, (home) shows One PCI Express x 16 slot. (supports PCI Express Bus specification v1.0a compliant) • One PCI Express x 1 slot. (supports PCI Express Bus specification v1.0a compliant) • Two 32-bit v2.2 Master PCI bus slots. (support 3.3v/5v PCI bus interface)
so you have these slots. find a video car that 1 one of those bus, connectors. and if said video car , needs special, power connectors your old power supply will not do that. its too old. go to geek squad, they know the ropes. ask them for options better, ask and say why you need to change video on such an old slow machine.?
Sounds like your computer has an integrated video card and the game is looking for an extended graphics card. This type of card plugs into the motherboard via the AGP, PCI, or PCIE slots. Depending on the type of video card and computer, you may need to upgrade the power supply when you put the card in. If this is a laptop there is no good way to upgrade the video card.
use your PCIE card to boot-up from CMOS, then check your onboard vga, try to configure it by 1st boot is your onboard, if that wont work then maybe your onboard vga was already damaged, better to use pcie video card rather than an onboard because it lets you consume the whole amount of your memory unlike the onboard card..
The p4i65gv is an older motherboard, supporting Socket 478 processors. The only slots on the motherboard that support a video card are the 3 PCI slots. You will need at least one of these to be free before you can consider purchasing a video card.
As the motherboard is older, the video card will also be an older card, with low capabilities. It will not be able to handle high-end graphic-related tasks such as heavy gaming or 3D modeling. You can find a list of around 30 different PCI graphics cards here: http://bit.ly/cBqrGl Remember, the card MUSt be PCI; do not confuse PCI with PCIe.
if you have built in video card u must disale it if ur using a pcie video card or agp video card if none of the aboe work try using a pci video card nero makes good ones and make sure you have the right drivers for the right type of windows u are using u may have to got to the video card website to get the right drivers for example navida.com and download drivers for windows 7 not all companyines have made updates for win7 and vista
PCI is the older, slower format, PCIe is newer and faster, but your system MUST support PCIe or it won't work. So easy option is to find if your system supports PCIe and then get whichever is suitable.
hi...if you want more to run games try to buy a Video card separate.. if mother board is PCIE slot buy the PCIE Video Card.if AGP Slot buy the AGP Video Card..the best VGA is 512x128 mb..Thanks and Good Luck..^_^
Most often restarts during games or other heavy duty tasks are from the following reasons
1.) Lack of power. If your Power supply unit is less than 450W then this is highly likely.
2.) Overheating. If your PC's bios has temperature reading sensors then after it is warmed up open the BIOS by press <Delete> after the logo disappears and go to the entry that informs you of temperature... If your seeing a Temp ove 45-50 degrees Celcius your runnin too hot. Get a better heatsink or other cooling apparatus (ie... liquid cooling or peltier) depending on your budget and your technical skill.
3.) Video card over heating/power issues run the PC with the cover off. Watch your Video card. is the Fan on it spinning? Does you Video card have a seperate power adapter? If so is it Fully seated.
4.) Mismatched memory. the memory adapter you installed does it have the same specifications as other memory that is also in your system. Sometimes if their slightly off and the computer sets the timing for the faster memory instead of the slower memory then the system chugs along at a speed that the slow module cant handle and it fails momentarily.
5.) Driver conflict error. Sometimes an older driver just gets in the way of other devices that want the same resources. (Particularly if you are using the drivers that came with the Video card) Go to Nvidia's website download and install the latest drivers for your card and Operating system combination.
Hopefully these tips will help you get you Fragging in no time.
