Re: graphic card

The graphics card has got nothing to do with the game installation, only when the game is installed will you be able to see if the card is performing correctly, if you have a game that requires the cd to run after installation for pirating reasons, assuming you have it installed use cd1 to play the game.

If you can get the correct resolution for your monitor eg 1024 x 768 then the graphics card is working, you would'nt be able to see your desktop.

Game not working please help

The game that you are trying to play most likely asks for more than 128mb of RAM for a graphics card. Try upgrading your card to increase the performance of your computer and gameplay.

I can not play 3D games because the screen is black even i have installed driver, its does not work, i only play with 2D games,before that i still normally playing games 3D,i guess something is wrong with...

Let's see if something IS wrong with the card, or it is something else.

Some of what I may state, may sound like I'm insulting your intelligence. Please be aware that this is the furthest thing from my mind. I'm just trying to 'Cover all bases', to help you get your problem solved.

1.Sometimes we get in a hurry, and look back to see that the monitor was not hooked into the graphics card, but was accidentally hooked into the VGA port on the motherboard.

2.If this is an Nvidia GeForce FX5200, and you're trying to play a game like Crysis, it isn't going to work. Not enough 'graphics power' on that card.

(You need at least an Nvidia GeForce 9800GT to use medium to medium/high settings)

You also need a decent processor.
Celeron, Pentium 4, and Pentium D won't cut it, and you should have 2GB's of Ram Memory.

3.The best way to install a graphics card is to install the drivers off of the CD, FIRST, then turn off the computer, unplug from power, de-static yourself, and install the graphics card.

Because as soon as a device is installed on a computer using Windows, Windows breaks it's neck trying to find compatible drivers for it.

If THE drivers are not there, Windows will match up generic drivers out of it's database. It has THOUSANDS of generic drivers.

Won't be the right ones, though! You need THE drivers for that GeForce FX5200. The ones that came with it on that CD.
When you install THE drivers after you have installed the graphics card, you get a Driver Conflict.

Windows: "Which one's do I use? These or THESE?"

If this is the situation you may want to try this.

A.Turn off your computer normally. Unplug it from power. Open the case. Work on a table, and TOUCH the metal frame of the computer case.

(Your body carries Static electricity. Static will FRY OUT delicate computer hardware components! You may not see it or feel it! Computer unplugged from power, you're safe. Touch the metal frame, and your computer is safe. IF you get up, and leave for Any reason while working on your computer, when you come back TOUCH the metal frame again.

Install a graphics card while the computer is plugged into power, you'll fry out that graphics card!)

B.Remove your graphics card. You need to lay it down on a non-static area.

C.Push the Power On button in, and Hold it In for a count of Five seconds. Let go. Do this procedure Two more times.
You are clearing out CMOS Error Codes, and resetting BIOS Setup, back to the factory default settings.

D.Now attach the monitor cable to the VGA port on the motherboard,

E.Plug the computer back into power. Leave the case open. You'll be back in there in a few minutes. (Do Not reach inside!)

F.WAIT 1 minute, then power on your computer. After Windows loads, go to Start>Control Panel>Add/Remove Programs.
Remove the Nvidia software. ALL of it. Anything you see associated with the Nvidia name.

If you are asked to restart your computer, do so. If not, restart your computer. (Close all windows, go back to your desktop screen. Click on Start>Turn Off Computer>Restart)

G.After Windows loads, install the Drivers from the CD disk.

H.After you're done with the instllation, if you are asked to Restart your computer - NO!
Click on Restart Later. Close all windows, go back to your desktop screen. Turn your computer off.

Unplug from Power!

I.Touch the metal frame again. Install the graphics card. Close the computer case. Plug the monitor into the graphics card. Plug the computer back into power.
WAIT 1 minute, turn the computer on.

Sapphire HD 2600 XT Driver Problems

Just because you have a new video card with CD drivers does not mean the drivers are the latest. Go to Saffhire directly & download the latest driver software for you're card.

Uninstall any older driver software before installing newer. Try not to restart the system between installs.
And update windows before you install the new drivers. You do not need to install WinXP SP3. Unless you want too.

Good luck!

My monitor freezes

since you have laready checked the videocard to be working on your friends pc, the problem may be on your motherboard.

try to do some tweaking on the BIOS and if that will not help, check your directX and softwares installed on your pc. check also if your pc is in its most optimal settings.

I cant work any game using Graphics Card

to see if your graphics card is installed and recognised, go to My computer, right click>properties>hardware tab>device manager, then look down the list for graphics adapter, click on the '+' sign and see if it is recognised, if so uninstall it and reboot pc and it will install itself again. If you require the driver seee this site: if there is a yellow '!' mark on the graphics adapter line then right click on it and select update driver and then it should search your system for the driver, assuming you have installed the downloaded driver first, if it is unable to find the driver, choose to manually install and point windowws to where you downloaded the driver, but remember to unzip the driver first if it is in a zip folder.
