Video card not installing

I bought a new video card, geforce 9600GT, it installed the first time but needed a pci connection from the power supply. i left it running until i got an adpter, like 1 week later. in between it was saying the video card...something about power issues because of the connection it needed. then all of a sudden it powered off, i sent it to saprkle and got a new one. i installed the new one and tried instaiing the drivers and it tells me..."an unsupported operation was attempted" and closes the install window. i have tried installing driver manually in device manager, also disabled on board video, but no luck...

Did you make sure you uninstalled the original 9600gt driver, other than that you could try safe mode with networking and download/install the driver.

Is nvidia 9600gt graphic card compatible with asus p5rd2vm motherboard


Yes.

1) The Asus P5RD2-VM motherboard has a PCI Express x16 slot.

The Nvidia 9600GT uses a PCI Express x16 slot.


2) The PCI Express version used on the Nvidia 9600GT is PCI Express 2.0

The PCI Express technology used on the Asus P5RD2-VM motherboard is PCI Express 1.1

The motherboard chipset used on the Asus P5RD2-VM shows us this.

The motherboard chipset is an ATI RD480. (Before AMD bought ATI out)

The ATI RD480 chipset came out September 27, 2005.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Comparison_of_ATI_chipsets#Comparison_of_Northbridges

Scroll down until you come to > RD480 in the left column, then read across.

The PCI Express technology started under another name, then was changed to PCI Express.
The first version was PCI Express 1.0
Then PCI Express 1.1

In 2007 (January 15) the PCI Express 2.0 technology was brought out.


The PCI Express 2.0 technology is Backward Compatible with the PCI Express 1.1 technology.
(With PCI Express 1.0 also, but it depends on the graphics card being used)



In otherwords, a graphics card that has been based upon the PCI Express 2.0 technology, will work on a motherboard based on the PCI Express 1.1 technology.

You won't get the full capability of the PCI Express 2.0 graphics card.
Will you notice?
NO.

[ If I had my choice I would run an Nvidia 9800GT instead.
Depends on the price, and availability of the 9600GT I would assume, though.
You may also need a more powerful Power supply.

What graphic card is compatible for my pc?? i have HP PAVILION, g3660d, 2 GB RAM, WINDOW VISTA home basic.I want to play games like Left 4 dead, COD 4....


Well... Windows Vista can be installed on anything. I'm not familiar with your particular PC, but there are two ends to the problem. A) Plug in to PC end. Here there are the PCI-bus, and PCI-E standards. PCI-E comes in many flavors, a tiny tiny connection (1 lane), and a wide connection (>1 lanes? don't remember 8?). Open your PC box and look at the slot closest to the CPU, that is typically the graphics card expansion slot. Take a picture (if you have a camera), note if this slot is "different" from the other slots... it is likey to be. Then you can google PCI-E and PCI connectors to see if you can match them up. If you have a *NEW* pc it's likely you have a PCI-E bus. This is the *faster* solution.
2) Card to monitor. There are multiple ports on many of the new PC graphics cards... from oldest to newest VGA - This is a DB-9 type connector... looks like a oval but is longer on one side than the other. (i.e. not a rectangle). This is the oldest standard. DVI - This is an oval connection.. You can get DVI to VGA adaptors, and some video cards come with them. This will have a series of pins and a "+" cross pin connection on it. HDMI -- The coolest and typically includes sound for direct connection to HDTV. But your monitor may not have this type of port.
So if your looking for a card, look for one that is either PCI-E or PCI based on how old your PC is, and also look at what types of video output connectors it has.. VGA/DVI or HDMI. Most of the newer cards will have HDMI and DVI output with a VGA adaptor. But some don't.
Then... there is the case of a particular card having "issues" with the game you want. If you have time... pick a particular card, then google for "my favorite game" [replace the game with your game name" and the video card with the word problems... to see if anyone has had problems with that particular combo. (I never do that... :()

Bought a Nvidia Geforce 7800 GTX 256MB Graphics card


errrr.... do you mean the 6 pin pci-e power plug and lead that normally comes off your Power supply?

You can get converters leads that change the pinout of 5.35 HDD power to 6-pin pci-e but this is usually NOT RECOMMENDED for any GTX series of GeForce.

You usually need the dedicated PCI-E RAIL (with its own PCI-E lead/connector... or even better x 2 of them) on your power supply for these builds.

Once again.... i definately do not recommend converting one of your other power outputs to run a GTX. At best it will not work.... at worst (though unlikely) you may end up damaged your shiny new GFX card.

If you do not have a 6 pin PCI-E lead and plug running directly from your power supply to run this card.... you need one. Do you happen to know the model of your current PSU?

Aspire t-180 4-pin power plug


Your aspire does not include a PCI-Express power connector... that's why you'll need to buy an adapter cable that transforms two other type of connectors (molex) available from your power supply into the one you need to feed power to your video card.

You may need a cable like this...
