Question about Compaq 192174-002 (8 MB) Graphic Card

XP computer resolution Compaq graphic card?

Hi - I loaded XP on my computer and it can't find the graphics card apparently. The monitor resolution is set at default with no other option. I need to download the drivers so I opened up my computer to find what graphics card I have. I don't know how to find it or the part number. I found one card that looked like it but when I enter the number, nothing comes up. It is obviously a blanket setting by compaq with no upgraded graphics device, but before Ioaded XP I had good graphics. Can you help? I need to find out how I can tell what kind of graphics card I have so I can get the driver to download - if that's how I fix the prob. Thanks so much!

    I looked again - all it says is Compaq, Intel Inside, Pentium for, Made for Windows XP - there's no other brand name that I can see on it.

  • derbyshire Jan 10, 2008

    OK - your sending me to Tom eh? I'm not that lame really. I actually lost my hard drive and reinstalled it and loaded XP today. The computer just doesn't have any specific model info on it but what I gave you. I hope that's enough to help out. I don't get why XP doesn't recognize the graphics.

    Thanks - unfortunately when I try to download it, it says that the page cannot be displayed. Do you know why this might happen? I'm trying to download it on my fully working computer first. I'll have to look for the drivers elsewhere I guess. You guys are really helpful and wonderful.

    That is the model number of the power supply itself. It should say "compaq evo D500" or something like that on it somewhere.

    LOL thats not how I meant it. I just know that the older Compaq's (before the HP merge) can be a real pain to find anything for them, and i was about to leave for a little while and didn't want to leave you hanging.

Hello, My winXP cannot recognize monitor Asus VH232T - windows suggests 4:3 resolutions only. Can you please advise where can I download the monitor driver? Video card is ATI RADEON XPRESS 200 Thank...


Hi

Monitors do not generally require drivers. The .inf drivers to run almost all monitors are already in Windows.

The problem here is in the settings of the graphics card.

Many users aim for Maximum resolution, when what they should aim for is Optimum resolution, balancing the RAM, CPU, GPU, GRAM and Monitor''s resources in the most efficient and effective way.

Keeping the relevant software updated also has an impact on graphics performance (grpahics Card Drivers, Java, Flash, DirectX, Video Codecs, etc.)

If the video resolution is set too high (or too low), beyond the graphics capabilities of the monitor, on reboot, the monitor will be unable to resolve the image.

The simplest solution would be to use a different monitor to adjust the video resolution, shut down then test the preferred monitor again.

Right Click on desktop>Properties>Settings then use the slider scale to adjust resolution, then Apply, Yes on the optimum setting, them OK.

Find the optimum setting in XP with your graphics card for this monitor and you should be fine.

Hope this helps.

I recently purchased a 19"


Your computer graphics, whether onboard or graphics card does not support this resolution.

I think it is a driver problem, click here to download and install the latest drivers.

Fill in the details and select search then download and install.
You may need to purchase a more powerful graphics card.

jason,
When a device is installed, Windows 'Breaks it's neck', to find a compatible driver, (Or drivers)

If THE driver is not present, then Windows will match up one of it's thousands, of generic drivers it has on hand.

Then if THE driver is installed, there is a driver conflict.

{Crude illustration}
Windows: 'Which drivers do I use? These or THESE?'

Let's try this;

{Based on Windows XP operating system}
1) Left-click on,
Start>
Control Panel>
Add/Remove Programs

When Add/Programs populates REMOVE the graphics cards software.
ALL of it. Anything you see associated with that graphics card.

Close all windows, go back to your desktop screen.
(If you are asked in Add/Remove Programs, if you wish to restart your computer - NO)

Shut your computer down normally.
(Start>Turn Off Computer>Shut Down)

Unplug your computer from power. Open the computer case, TOUCH the metal frame to relieve your body of Static electricity.
(Static will fry out your computer hardware components)

Remove the graphics card.

Press the Power On button in, and hold it in for a count of Five seconds. (And I mean Five. Count - 1001..1002..1003..1004..1005)

Let go of the Power On button.
Do this same procedure Two more times. (Imperative!)

What you are doing is clearing CMOS Error Codes, and resetting your BIOS Setup back to the factory default settings.

Now plug your monitor into the VGA port on the motherboard.
Plug your computer back into power.
WAIT 1 minute.
Turn your computer on.

When Windows has loaded all the way, put the CD disk for your graphics card in your optical drive tray. Load the software.

When you are finished, close all windows, go back to your desktop screen.
Shut your computer down normally.

Unplug your computer from power. TOUCH the metal frame. Install your graphics card.
Plug your monitor into the graphics card.
Close your computer case.

Plug your computer into power. WAIT 1 minute.
Turn your computer on.

If the resolution isn't correct:

Right-click anywhere on an empty spot of your desktop screen.
In the drop down menu, Left-click on Properties.
Now left-click on the Settings tab, all the way to the right.

Look down at where it states - Screen resolution, in blue.
(Halfway down the Display Properties window)

Is the pixel resolution what it should be?
If not, Left-click on the slider.

Hold your left mouse button down, and slide the slider, to where the resolution settings are correct for your Dell LCD monitor.
(To the left is Less. To the right is More)

Now go down to the right, and click on Apply.
Then go over to the left, and click on OK.

Don't know what the native resolution, for that Dell LCD Thin Film Transistor monitor should be?

Look it up on the internet using the Model Number, or give me the Model Number, and I'll look it up for you.

I can only get 480 x 640 resolution and 4 bit colors and all the graphics are fuzzy


It appears the graphics card driver has not been installed. Check the device Manager and if you get a yellow ? against the Display Adapter then you need to install the graphic driver.
If your computer is a Compaq or HP then you need to download the drivers from the Compaq/HP WEB support/download page. Make sure you select your model computer and the XP or Vista Windows version of the drivers you require and install them. Use this link to download the drivers :-
http://h18000.www1.hp.com/cpq-country/cpq_support.html


If your computer is not a Compaq or HP desktop computer and you know the make and model of the graphics card in your computer then go to the graphics manufacturer's WEB site to download the graphics driver.

My monitor requires a resolution of 1360 x 768 but I can't change it in Windows Xp eu but I could before with others versions of windows


The allowed resolution does not depend on the Operative windows used (XP,Vista, etc.) , but on the video adapter installed on the computer and on the video card driver.

If resolution 1360 x 768 was supported before on the SAME computer with a different system, then you may need to re-install the video card driver.

If resolution 1360 x 768 was not present before on same computer, then the display adapter installed on this computer may not support 1360 x 768.
Check specifications on Google, download updated display drivers, and if nothing works, then buy and fit inside the computer display adapter supporting 1360 x 768, like the one here: e-GeForce 7200 GS TC 128 MB PCI-e Graphics Card

Resolution Problem


you need to be installing a graphics driver for your onboard graphics or your graphics card, the monitor driver won't change the resolution, when you installed XP there wouldn't have been a graphics driver installed, only a VGA driver to enable a 800 x 600 resolution.

 

Find out your card manufacturer or your onboard graphics or use the cd that came with the motherboard or card.
