Problem with ASUS Geforce 6600, 256MB, AGP8x

I have a big problem. I bought ASUS Geforce 6600, 256MB, AGP8/4x. I've change my old mx440 64Mb to a 6600, and I can't do nothing, because a view looks so crappy that it's hard to see anything. There are loads of horizontal stripes. I've disabled in BIOS such features as AGP fast writing, 1ms write, Video caching and so on. Now the view is fine when Win XP loads. I've uninstall old MX drivers. Applied new ones from NVIDIA.com for 6600, finally I could adjust refresh rate and resolution. but still when I load any game (doesn't matter starcraft, counter-strike or of newer ones the screen looks just the same as it looked in the beginning. I could see anything. I use 420W power supply, and MSI motherboard with AGP4X. I'm 99% for sure that physically a video card is fine. Something with drivers maybe or with a mother board. I don't know. Pls help me :) I've checked it a 1000 times, video card is plugged, fan spins :/

Its most likely drivers. Completely uninstall all Geforce drivers and and software. Some video uninstall programs only remove the software and not the drivers. You'll need to go into device manager and uninstall the video drivers from there. Double check to make sure MX440 drivers are gone as well. When you restart and windows wants to install your new card, cancel it, then run the Geforce setup program. That way you won't get conflicts with a windows basic driver. Then make sure you have Directx 9c installed. Directx 10 isn't necessary because I don't believe the 6600 supports it anyway.
Good luck

Hi Erika,

Assuming you purchased and installed the card into one of the 2 matching matching MoBo's PCI Express 2.0 x16 slots, make sure it is seated fully. Make sure you've got both power cables connected to the card.

Two power connectors are on the upper right corner of card.

Next, you'll need a 450W rated power supply unit (PSU) in the PC as MINIMUM. If yours is a "run of the mill", "no name" or "oem" type, it is probably inefficient as the day is long - that means bumping up to a 550+ watt rated PSU instead.

Lastly, have look at page 3-1 of the manual. Look at the table that describes POST codes. if it will not POST, reinstall the GeForce 8600 video card and go for boot. If it works, I suspect that your PSU and / or power connections are lacking.

I hope this helps and good luck! Please rate my reply - thanks!

What Graphics AGP Card could I buy to improve my system? thanks Graham


Click here for full specification list for ASUS P4P800SE Motherboard.
Click here for Supported Graphics cards, remember when you go though the graphics cards remember its only those of AGP8X and 4X
If you can go for a Geforce 6600Gt AGP8X you will then be able to do some gaming at 1024X768 pixels, play Call of Duty 4 at low settings. Good considering that Call of Duty 4 is a new game.

It shows that any AGP 8X or 4X card is supported also look at the picture attatched, I circled supported Graphic Cards in RED!!! I recomend purchasing a AGP8X card. 128mb at least.

Please remember to rate my expertise, thumbs up.
Thanks
