Question about Graphics BV200 BizView 128MB (128 MB) PCI Graphic Card

3 Answers


I need some help with this one. My PC display is experiencing problems like corrupt images, faulty animations, sometimes I can see vertical lines on the screen. On the worst case, my PC stops responding from mouse movements or keyboard commands and more often the screen display starts blinking or blacking out. I tried reinstalling the driver a few times already. I put the display configuration & the hardware acceleration bar to the lowest setting & still the problems persists. Only on the windows safe mode and when I disabled the video card on the device manager properties the problems stop occuring. My gut tells me its the Nvidia GeForce2 MX400/400 graphics card that has problem but I still need some feedback from others to make sure. So any opinion will be helpful. THANKS!

Scan your PC for viruses and spyware in the safemode.
Use mcafee. If you don't want to pay, just use the trial.
If it does not help, format your computer.
Get your graphics card and your slot tested by a local hardware dealer.
In the worst cases, you will have to get your graphics card and/or motherboard replaced.

first remember that a Nvidia GeForce2 MX400/400 as only 64Mb and some newest videos or games ask for such much more, that we never stop spending money.

Anyway, search in google for driverguide and update your video card's drivers. Just imagine about what I told b4, I used video cards since they had 8Mb and actually I have ATI Power Color with 512Mb... upgrades, upgrades...

S-video out to tv nvidia 9300 gforce won't work

obvious things first. have you tried the other input plugs on the TV? do you get the same problem with plugs 1 and 2?
you can try only having the TV connected to the Graphics card and turning on the PC see if it comes up as the primary display automatically.
have you tried configuring the Nvidia setting so ONLY the tv is a display instead of dual monitor?
doing these will rule out faulty cable or faulty S-video plug or Faulty TV input plug.

Turned my gateway mx3414 laptop off, when I turned it back on the screen was black, turned off and restarted several times always just a black screen.

You may have a faulty inverter or defective CCFL lamp. A faulty CCFL lamp may have the following symptom: Screen flashes on and off or displays reddish pink hue. Picture stays on in red and slowly be come normal. Picture flickering and/or with dim display or appear black. Picture flickers on and off. All these symptoms indicate that the LCD backlight lamp (CCFL Lamp) has reached the end of the life and all you need to do is replace the CCFL lamp.
To determine if the video card or the LCD is faulty, connect an external monitor to your laptop and power the monitor up first then the laptop, if you see the normal Windows images then the video card and laptop is OK and the problem is definitely the backlight. Dim image and/or dark display on the laptop's LCD screen indicates a faulty LCD backlight or a faulty inverter that supplies high voltage to the CCFL lamp. Usually the CCFL lamp fails before the inverter.
The inverter can be replaced easily but the CCLF lamp is more time consuming and requires soldering skills.

If it is a AGP card it is not possible that the graphics card can make the keyboard and mouse not respond.
If it is a PCI card there is a chance that it can do what you mentioned.
Also it could be the size of the graphics card, a 512 mg card can sometimes need a 500W power supply so you could get your power supply diagnosed as well.
Hope this helps

Nvidia GeForce2 MX400/400

I have the same card....and my PC stops responding from mouse movements sometimes, but not anymore. I found that if I always use the HIBERNATE feature of Windows, that my video problems vanish, so I think the problem is related to video RAM, but not sure, because virtual memory caching plays a large role during wake from hibernate. Also ensure that BIOS video settings are not too extreme, go with the normal or default video settings.

Its most likely the video cards fault,
however a bad PSU can cause these problems.

No Power To The Computer
Here you must first check the wall outlet for power by connecting another device such as a radio or lamp to be sure power is present. If the computer is connected through a surge protector, check it as well.
If the wall out has power, check the power cable going to the PC to see if AC voltage is making its way to the system unit. Do this with the use of a multimeter.
If there is power, you will have to open the PC and check for power from the power supply to the motherboard.
When using a multimeter to check voltage, be sure you have a good ground for the black lead of the multimeter.
Rebooting Problems
One main problem you may face with an ailing power supply is that it may reboot the computer without any warning. All information is lost and it seems as though this happens at the worst possible time.
Booting errors when the computer first starts up may be another indicator of this component going on the blink.
Power Distribution Problems
When the power supply begins to fail, you may receive power at one device and not another. For example, the hard drive may receive power, but the CD-ROM drive has nothing at all.
Another headache that would cause rebooting is the intermittent power going to the drives or the motherboard itself. Follow the steps below to check your power supply should you experience some of the above problems.
