Question about HEWLETT-PACKARD Compaq Presario CQ5210F (NY540AA#ABA) PC Desktop

1 Answer

I need to disable the onboard graphics

It keeps installing the Nvidia 6150se onboard graphics even after it has recognized the nVidia 9500 GT that I installed and installed the driver for. Upon restart the 6150 was installed again. I changed the bios to pcix16 from onboard. I can not destroy this 6150. How do I disconnect it from the motherboard?

    Hi John David, I want to help you with your problem, but I need more information from you. Can you please add details in the comment box? What is the brand of your computer?

    Thank you for your offer of assistance. I finally got the nVidia 9500GT installed. I had to uninstall the driver for the 9500, physically remove the 9500 then I let the nVidia 6150se install itself. Then I went to device manager and instead of uninstalling it I disabled it. I then rebooted and let the standard vga driver install itself. Then I put the 9500 back in, rebooted and my system recognized the 9500. Then I just had to install the driver for the 9500. Now it works fine. The computer is a Compaq Presario. Problem solved..

SOURCE: i have installed two diferent graphics card, #1 was MSI 5459 and #2 was a Nvidia GeForce 250. Bth ran fine afor a short period of tme #1 for a month an #2 for about 2 weeks. After these periods of

I don't find the MSI 5459 graphics card, William.
Am familiar with the Nvidia GeForce 250 GTS, though.

Using the GeForce GTS 250 as an example, the graphics card requires a 6-pin PCI-Express power cable, for additional power, along with the power it gets from the PCI-Express x16 slot it is in.

http://www.playtool.com/pages/psuconnectors/connectors.html#pciexpress

The unit is furnished with an adapter power cable, that converts 2 Molex power cables, (4-pin Peripheral power cables, actually), into 1 PCI-Express 6-pin power cable.

Note that the 6-pin PCI-Express power cable, has two Yellow wires in it.

Let's look at a 4-pin Peripheral power cable,

http://www.playtool.com/pages/psuconnectors/connectors.html#peripheral

Note there is one Yellow wire, one Red wire, and two Black wires.

The Red wire is a 5 Volt wire, and not used by the adapter power cable.

The two Black wires are Ground wires, and only one is used by the adapter power cable.

The Yellow wire is a 12 Volt wire, and is used by the adapter power cable.

The 6-pin PCI-Express power cable requires TWO Yellow 12 Volt wires.
(And three Black Ground wires)

This means Two 4-pin Peripheral power cables MUST be used.

Failure to use two 4-pin Peripheral power cables, to that adapter power cable, means the GeForce GS 250 is NOT receiving enough power.

This will burn the connection at the graphics card, burn the adapter power cable connector, and burn the PCI-Express x16 slot it is sitting in.

Takes time, but will happen.

Could this be what you have done?

It also requires 150 Watts all by itself. You need more power for the rest of the computer.

(The 6-pin PCI-Express power cable is designed to provide up to 75 Watts of power. This means 75 Watts of power, also comes from the PCI-Express x16 slot, it is sitting in)

Nvidia GeForce GTS 250,

Hello bsod often means you have a driver problem, or a graphic card problem.
The graphic card could have a defect, this can cause the blue screen.

Try also to check the device manager, for any other drivers missing.

Try first to download and install the newest driver from nvidia:

http://www.nvidia.com/object/win8-win7-winvista-64bit-314.07-whql-driver.html

This is the 64 bit driver.

The 32 bit is here:

http://www.nvidia.com/object/win8-win7-winvista-32bit-314.07-whql-driver.html

If i am wrong by my selection, choose another here:

http://www.nvidia.com/Download/index.aspx?lang=en-us

Or use Automatically find drivers for my NVIDIA products, by installing a small bit of software.

If the driver update does not help, the graphic card must be renewed.

My advice is to uninstall ALL the old nvidia software, before you install the new.

Are the onboard graphic nvidia ???

This can sometimes create a conflict, when the graphic card brand are the same.
Try to disable the onboard graphic, in the device manager.

Good luck

Hi.

You do not necessarily need to disable the built in graphic adapter, the computer can manage two different adapters.
The nVidia should show picture with standard VGA definition (800x600 only) if simply connected to the AGP or PCI slot even if drivers are not installed, and even if built in GPU is not disabled.
If there is no picture, check installation in slot, check that card is not disabled in BIOS, check video cable is well connected, and if nothing works, test the video adapter on different PC, the card may be faulty.

Here the manuals:

You may have tried this & I missed it.
For htis new cardto work, you need to DISABLE the on-montherbord video.
Go to BIOS Setup and you will find a spot where you can disable onboard video.
Now Mboard will recognize your new video card.

I have: dg31pr core2duo 2giga memory kingston 320hd nvidia geforce 9500 gt 512 Problem: When starts operational system (Vista or 7),sometimes the video do not open. Bios in Auto or pci Express


Suggest you test your geforce 9500 GT in another system or try another PCI-Express video card. Try cleaning the contacts of your 9500 GT with alcohol, allow it to dry. Do not touch the contacts with your fingers after cleaning. If your onboard graphics functions correctly than it may be the 9500 that has a problem.

Happy holidays!

When you install a new video card you must disable the onboard video card by going into the bios setup. Below I have listed the requirements of Second life game. e 531 does come with PCI-E slots so make sure you buy a VIDEO card with PCI-E Walmart sells some pretty decent priced Graphics cards. pretty much any pci-e card you buy new in walmart these days will be fine for this game.

PC Minimum System Recommendations:

* Internet Connection*: Cable or DSL

* Computer Processor: 1.6GHz Pentium 4 or Athlon 2000+ or better

* Computer Memory: 512MB or better

* Video/Graphics Card**:
o nVidia GeForce FX 5600, GeForce 6600, or better
o OR ATI Radeon 9600, X600, or better

Disable the existing video card in device manager and try again. The onboard video will always try to take first spot, so disable it ...your video will still work until you can install the new video card :)
