Question about HP NVIDIA GeForce4 MX420 (64 MB) Graphic Card

1 Answer

Cannot set resolution higher than 640x480

This is in a dell tower with an NVIDIA Geforce MX 420 video card. The slider is available with multiple resolutions, but if you choose any and hit 'apply', it just stays at 640x480. Specifically, the window comes up and asks if I want to keep the changes but it hasn't actually changed. the slider then goes back to 640x480.

I have tried rolling back the driver, uninstalling and reinstalling it, using Windows update, and getting the latest from NVIDIA's site. The drivers all have the same issue.

    I have tried using it with multiple monitors. The one I'm using it with right now is a Dell SE178FWP. I have tried uninstalling and updating the display drivers... as a technician, I'm at sort of a loss. I just don't want to reinstall this OS...

    The obvious answer is replace the video card. You can get a better card than that 420 MX for less than 10 dollars these days. That card even pre-dates Forceware if I remember right. Assuming you have gone to Nvidia's site and obtained the exact driver for that card and your installed OS and it still didn't work, replacing the card is the next logical step.

Currently, nvidia has no offerings for Win7 that I have found. This is to be expected with beta programs. Perhaps on the Microsoft site?

The resolution on screen is blurred even though the video card is installed. maybe the card needs an installer and i do not know what kind. can you provide me one?


http://www.nvidia.com/object/winxp_2k_93.71_2.html

this is the most up to date driver they have available for your graphics card at the moment via geforce if for some reason this does not solve your problem it may be as simple as making sure the resolution you have it config for is available on your monitors spec a good idea would be to google prime res settings for your monitor and finding what is suggested if its a more recent problem though hopefully the drivers will fix it for you

Hope I helped
please leave feedback
Thanks

I've got a dell computer and i'm trying to swap the crt screen to a packard bell lcd screen and it wont display is there a driver i have to get or are they just not compatable


It probably a mismatch between resolution, colour depth and refresh rates. Before you disconnect the CRT change the resolution to 640x480 and 16 colours with a 60Hz refresh. Then connect the LCD and adjust the settings

Have a new 23 inch samsung monitor that requires res 1920x1080


The problem is the cable connection to the video card.
When using the DVI output of the FX 5500, the maximum screen resolution that you can select is 1280 x 1024.

But, if you use the Analog (VGA) output, the card will support resolutions up to 2048 x 1536, which should be ok.
