Question about SPARKLE Computer GeForce 6600GT, (128 MB) AGP Graphic Card

Flickering monitor attached to notebook.

I recently added and new 24 inch LCD monitor to my HP Pavilion dv9000nr notebook running Vista Operating System. I have a Nvidia GeForce Go 7600 integrated graphics card. I run the monitor from a HP expansion base via an analog VGA connection. I have tried the connection directly from the notebook but the same problem persist. The problem is that the monitor flickers as if there is some interference. This is the second 24 inch LCD monitor (different brand) I have connected with the same flickering. I have tried to reset resolution and refresh rates but this does nothing. Drivers appear updated. No electrical device or cord problems seem apparent. I have my monitor set as a single monitor rather than a clone or dualview. Doesn't seem to matter anyhow as far as the background flickering is concerned. This flickering does not appear on the notebook screen. Any suggestions?

I am assuming that you are using Windows 7 but the basic steps are same for XP and Vista. You need to go to the Start Menu, then click on Control Panel. In the control panel find User Accounts. Inside user accounts you can manage and delete users (assuming you are logged in as an administrator.)
Hope that helps.

Unfortunately, there is no way to run on board graphics with your dedicated graphics card. One will always be disabled, (would need a hybrid SLI/Crossfire board for that option).

You will need to upgrade to a graphics card that has dual DVI & or VGA outputs built in to be able to hook up 2 monitors. (output type of port depends on what type of connector you have on the monitor cables)

The monitor display has vertical lines, flickering images

Have you tried using another monitor or running another OS (a Linux Live-CD)? If yes and it's the same then the video card memory has died, nothing you can do . The entire video card is gone, buy a new one.

No video

Your Windows 95 System runs on a lower screen resolution and would have a low profile HW used for the same purpose. If you connect to a new Monitor the resolution capabilities of the monitor would not match the VGA capabilities of the old Mother Board Video Chip. How ever this troubleshooting needs to get more info from you. Is the display showing any signal while the system starts, atleast the initial Bios startup screens. If the monitor is not responding to even that, you may have no other option than getting a monitor which can match the system configuration. There are third party devices which can be added to the system externally or internally to enable the latest LCD to work on this board but i may not recommend. Good Luck.

I believe that your LCD panel is the problem, but you should verify that you have good video, by toggling to an external monitor to check your output. If it dispays good, you have an LCD problem.

Have 7200 GS PCI-E and after working fine for 18 months, am now getting flickering intermittent black horizontal lines on my lcd monitor. suspect the graphics card as monitor tested fine on another pc....

Take out the graphics card and clean the contacts on both sides (a rubber on the end of a pencil is good for this) and retry. If possible try the graphics card in another computer.
If all this fails - get a new card!

Existing Graphics Card Radeon X300, which one to

I have looked it up on the internet, the graphics card is capable of displaying your monitors resolution. I am therefore assuming you want a new graphics card for 3d applications, since 2d is easily rendered by this card.
However, simply replacing the graphics card will not help. You will probably have a hard time finding a card that can fit on your mainboard, and even if you do, your prcessor will not be fast enough to send the required data to the graphics card.
In this case you will have to buy a new PC, I'm sorry. If I did not understand what you meant, please post a comment.

How do you change the resolution to 1920x1200?

I'm assuming that you're using either Windows Vista, or XP, and that your graphics car does support 1920x1200. You should double check to make sure that your card can support the higher resolution.

You should go to your desktop, find a blank space, and right click. Somewhere on the context menu, there should be an item that says either "personalize", or "properties." If you're using XP, it will pop up a menu, and you should browse through the tabs to find the one that controls the resolution. This will probably be in the appearance tab.

On vista, you will be taken into a control panel sub-menu. Click on Display Settings, and it will pull up a window that will allow you to alter your resolution.

If neither of these methods allow you to increase the resolution, and you're certain that your card supports the higher resolution, then you will need to get the new monitor. The operating system (or graphics drivers) will automatically pick up the new display settings once you install the larger screen, and the option should become available. If it still does not work, search for display drivers that correspond with your model of monitor.
