    thanks Benimur...



    When I put in the MATROX SOFTWARE CD... there are umpteen folders...like WIn2KXP / ACROBAT/Win NT /MgA Setup.. and some are just not even in a folder.



    What do I click on? I am running Windows XP Professional...

    Must say it is a nightmare.... Thanks to the guys at MATROX... cant even make it more user friendly...



    Anyway...I use this with AVID EXPRESS DV... So when I start my PC it says ' Matrox Error... ' but I carry on ... ' When I try loading AVID ... it wont open after Initialising GL effects...It just hangs...



    And then I drop some .dll files from the CD on the desktop and it kicks in...



    So obviously the answer is on the Software cD... but how do I do the right set up..because all the folders have some 'set up file' in it...



    Thanks again

    arri

Hi,

A clean install is always better than an overwrite.

In Windows XP preferably in Safe Mode, to uninstall a device, you can try:
1. right click on My Computer, click on Properties, Hardware tab, Device Manager button, expand your Display Adapter, right click on the device such as your Matrox Parphelia, click on Uninstall;
2. open your Control Panel, click on Add or Remove Programs, highlight Matrox Parphelia, click on Change/Remove; and/or
3. Click on Start, click on Run, type "regedit", click on Edit, click on Find, type "Matrox", delete entry, press F3, do the same and delete all instances of Matrox.

To install, reboot your PC, insert Matrox driver/installer CD and follow on screen instructions. If it does not auto start, open/explore your CD and click on setup.exe.

Hope that this be of some help/idea. Post back how things turned out or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

    Hi again,

    Perhaps you would be better of using a downloaded copy of the installer presumably more up to date compared to the CD.

    The driver is available here, expand the + Parhelia Series and select/check the 128 version, click on Next. The next page would be several choices which includes:
    1. Latest display drivers - Most recent software to use Matrox graphics hardware
    2. Certified display drivers - Display drivers that have undergone extra testing
    3. WYSIWYG plug-ins - To use Matrox features with certain third-party software
    4. Software and utilities - Software tools for Matrox hardware
    5. BIOS - Basic input/output software for Matrox graphics hardware
    6. Documentation - Information for Matrox products

    I would suggest the "Certified display drivers" since they have been known to be more stable and Windows certified.

    Hope this be of further help.

    Cheers.

Hello
Uninstall All drivers and software for ati card. Take card out.Put card back in. Reboot pc.Reinstall drivers.I dont think the 128 mb cards Came with a fan.The 256mb did.

All the same,check your pc fans are working and clean.Also disable any onboard motherboard Graphics.You will need to do this in the bios.

Possible card was not seated right in agp slot,or drivers were corrupt.

I have an HP XW8000 with a Matrox Parhelia 128MB card on Windows 7-32bit. I tried to upgrade the Matrox bios to better perform w/Win 7....but, it appears that the bios may not have taken properly and now...


never change BIOS unless:
1: the PC has issues, post them and ask at HP , no here.
2: if HP tells you to flash the BIOS, 99.9 % of time they will not.

where did you get this BIOS> HP, seems not.
BIOS must be carefully matched, too the hardware first.
this pc only supports XP , not W7, per HP official site.
so there is no W7 BIOS for any XW8000, period
so that means you got the bios FROM A VIRUS SITE, OR WORSE.
Did you pay cash for it, ? omg.

what we do is backup the bios , first
so there is a regression path, if it fails. as most do. (wrong bios)


the one and only correct bios is there at HP.
data title.
HP Workstation xw8000 System BIOS
JQ.W1.18_1.19 Rev. A3.9 MBMay 31, 2005


Matrox.
this PC came with 3 video cards, not one was a MATROX.
so did you flash it, you never said what you flashed.
here is a list of all possbible flash rom devices.
HP MOBO BIOS
Video cards. HP and 100s of others
HDD Bios.
DVD drives, vast rom updates.
RAID
SATA chip
this PC has over 24 FIRMWARE upgrades,
if you read the HP page, not one is for W7,
infact the last update was 2007, 2 years before w7, was released.

here is your official pages
id recommend getting it all, as HP is about to drop support on it.
the 10year rule , ok>
this one is 2005 PC, so is ending soon.

here are all your drivers, and such, NO MATROX.
https://support.hp.com/us-en/drivers/selfservice/hp-workstation-xw8000/96495

here is MATROX
they call it BIOS but its really BIOS extension for video only

Nikon Coolpix 4600: Problem: It won't take any photos, it reads: THIS CARD CANNOT BE USED. The card is 128 MB. I purchased a new card: 2GB but it won't work also. My manual says to clean the contacts...


1) Have you formatted the cards?

2) Try the cards in the card reader in your computer to see if they can be read.

3) Try the "switch off camera - remove and replace battery - switch on camera" trick with the original 128 Mb card in place. This will reset the camera's memory.

4) Note the type of card is important - not all cards can be used in a camera (especially some of the latest bigger ones) - check the type of cards supported by your camera.

I found this at the Nikon USA site (note that the 2 GB card is not listed - as said "Cards are not all the same" and use different drivers to operate them):

Question Which Secure Digital Cards are approved for use in the Coolpix 4600/5600? trnsp.gif Answer The Nikon Quality Department has tested the following cards and approved their use in the Coolpix 4600/5600:

SD memory cards:
SanDisk 16 MB, 32 MB, 64 MB, 128 MB, 256 MB, 256 MB*, 512 MB, 512MB*, 1 GB
Panasonic 16 MB, 32 MB, 64 MB, 128 MB, 256 MB*, 512 MB*,1 GB
Toshiba 16 MB, 32 MB, 64 MB, 128 MB, 128 MB*, 256 MB, 256 MB*, 512 MB

*High speed type of 10 MB/s or over

Other brands and capacities of cards may work, but Nikon cannot guarantee their operation. Check with the manufacturer of the third-
party card for compatibility information. Nikon recommends keeping one of the approved cards available for troubleshooting.
