ASUS EN7950 GT 512MB .. pROBLEM!

Hi. My computer is Dell 8400 Dimension, windows XP. bought about a year and a half ago I bought a new card, ASUS EN7950 GT 512MB and tried to install it. I deleted my old VGA driver, (x300) and turned the computer off, plugged the new 7950gt (with auxilary power cables plugged), and turned my computer on. The moment when my computer was on, the monitor got pixilated, with green stripes and purple stripes. most of all, It WOULDN'T GO PAST THE xp loading bar. strange Changing green pattern appears and my computer goes blank, and that blue screen appears saying: something about nv4_disp how the device got stuck into an infinite loop and how the problem might be the hardware itself or the driver in charge of the hardware. I can't even get to setting up the drivers of 7950 cause it can't get to windows XP. I tried VGA and Safe mode, but it doesn't install there. I believe that somehow the drivers of my old ATI card isn't clearly deleted (but i deleted it using control panel and checked with device manager and it was gone) and was clashing with the new nvidia card.. Help please..

Your PSU isn't the problem.  350W is more then enough to run the video card into windows... Windows isn't 3d accelerated meaning the video card can run in it without the video card's power supply intact. Like Beni said, go into your Bios and disable your old WGA and activate Plug and Play as your main. Hope you get this fixed :D

Hi, I think you will need to run the Dell restore disk, install the orriginal drivers and use the dell system to bootup then load the drivers the ASUS drivers then close the system, install the new card and then bootup. on doing this there will be resident drivers for the new card and it should work fine, then delete the orriginal drivers.

The graphic card could most likely be dead. If when you turn on the computer, you hear a series of beeps, either long or short, it could be a boot error code. Writting down the sequence could give further explanation of the error.

Did you verify if the graphics card that you have is compatible with the operating system of your computer? If yes, there's a possibility that the correct driver is not loading in your computer.

First, verify if the disc that came with the graphics card contains the Win XP SP3 driver.

Perform a system restore first, and then try to re-install the driver again.

If same problem occur, contact the manufacturer of the graphics card.

Good luck!

NVIDA 8400

I don't know if you have tried this yet, but here goes......
When the PC first powers up, hit the F2 or delete key to enter the setup page. See if there is a spot where you can disable the onboard graphics, then save the settings, reboot the PC, and see if this helps the problem. And there is always the chance that the graphics card is no good. And nothing but a return, and a new card will solve the problem.

Blank Monitor

I have the same system and card. The problem is the system is trying to run two monitors at once. Use Windows safe mode (F8 during boot) to uninstall any Pny drivers you may have put on. Reboot. Install the pny drivers again. Before rebooting, use the device manager to look at the display drivers. There should be two, an Intel one, and the pny Nvidia one. Disable the intel driver and reboot. Worked for me. Youmay also want to upgrade the power supply. The 3000 has a 225W and the 8400 card wants at least 300W.

Card, Graphic, 128, X800, SE need to up grade the new high end

if you dont want to have to upgrade your power supply. your pc only has a 350w in it.
i would suggest the Nvidia 8800 GT if you dont have a budget or the 8800 GS if you dont want to spend too much.
both run 512mb and are superb for gaming. make sure you get some extra cooling in your pc so as not to overheat, these cards put out quite a bit of extra heat.
both are compatible with the dimension 8400.
