Question about PC Desktops

2 Answers

Setup: Asus A7N8X Deluxe running AMD Athlon Xp 2700 w/NVidia GeForce 4 TI 4200 w/AGP8X Situation: Everything was running fine. When rebooted system would not bring my DVD and DVD Writer up and they show Code 39 but when I try to update drivers it indicates the best driver is already in place. Also, It shows 2- M-Systems Disk on Chip 2000 are Code 10. Wait a min. they show Code 12 now??? Not enough resources- that's new! The biggest problem is that I'm 64 and know just enough to get in trouble. Help, but be gentle.

    I had already tried everything you suggested above.
    The Microsoft site Wealthwise sent me to and an automatic fix to the upper and lower registers and my DVD's are working again. The two M-Systems Disk on Chip are still not functioning. I have no clue what they do or how to fix.

Hello Thepoetx,
You can try a couple of things. One, Click Start, then Right click on "My Computer", then select properties and left click, then click on the hardware tab (once the properties box opens) and click the "Device Manager" button. Go down the list and find the drives you are having problems with and right click on each one and select "Uninstall", then re boot your system.
If that doesn't do it? You can try a manual Windows update (Start, all programs, Windows update/Microsoft update near the top of the list) and choose "Custom" instead of "Express" option for the type of update. Once the scan is done, you can look at additional updates (hardware and software) to see if there is anything related to the optical drives (CD, DVD drives) in question, and add those updates to the critical/security updates and the update may cure your ills.
A third option would be to search the Manufacturers Support site for the devices and download the latest drivers from them and update your drivers that way.
I hope this helps, and Good Luck.

What video cards are compatable


This computer comes with a Nvidia FX5200 so this tells me that it can support any AGP8X Graphics Card.

Here is a list of compatible GeForce cards for this PC's.
GeForce 6 Series - (GeForce 6200, GeForce 6600GT, GeForce 6600 and GeForce 6600 LE)
GeForce FX Series - (GeForce FX 5950 Ultra, GeForce FX 5900 Ultra, GeForce FX 5900, GeForce FX 5900 XT, GeForce, GeForce FX 5700 Ultra, GeForce FX 5700, GeForce FX 5700LE, GeForce FX 5200 Ultra, GeForce FX 5200 and GeForce FX 5500)
GeForce 4 Series - (GeForce 4 Ti and GeForce 4 MX)GeForce 3 Series - (GeForce 3, GeForce 3 Ti 500 and GeForce 3 Ti 200)
GeForce 2 Series - (GeForce 2 Ultra, GeForce 2 Ti, GeForce 2 Pro, GeForce 2 GTS and GeForce 2 MX series)
GeForce 256 Series - (All)

Here is a list of compatible ATI/AMD cards for this PC's.
ATI Radeon X Series - (ATI Radeon X1050, ATI Radeon X1300, ATI Radeon X1550, ATI Radeon X1600 and ATI Radeon X1650)
ATI Radeon 9xxx Series - (ATI Radeon 9550)


You should already have a GeForce FX5200 so better than that is the 6600 and 6600GT.

Hello,

Thanks for using fixya.

My name is Carlo.

Your computer might not pass the system requirements that's why it has an error. Or, you can try installing it one more time and check if it will work. Computers do mess up sometimes.

Here's the system requirement of SIMS 3:

Desktop PC (Windows XP + SP2):
CPU: 2ghz Pentium4 Processor or Amd Athlon 2000+ Processor
RAM: 1 GB of RAM
GPU: 128mb Video Card (GeForce FX 5900 or Radeon 9500)

Desktop PC (Windows Vista + SP1):
CPU: 2ghz Pentium4 Processor or Amd Athlon 2400+ Processor
RAM: 1.5 GB of RAM
GPU: 128mb Video Card (GeForce FX 5900 or Radeon 9500)

Laptop (Windows XP + SP2):
CPU: 2ghz Pentium4 Processor or Amd Athlon 2000+ Processor
RAM: 1.5 GB of RAM
GPU: 128mb Video Card (GeForce Go 6200 or Radeon 9600)

Laptop (Windows Vista + SP1):
CPU: 2ghz Pentium4 Processor or Amd Athlon 2400+ Processor
RAM: 2 GB of RAM
GPU: 128mb Video Card (GeForce Go 6200 or Radeon 9600)

IF your computer does not pass the system requirement, then you cannot play sims3 in your computer.

I hope this helps. Thank you for using fixya

Please leave your comment and ratings. Thanks

Asus a7n8x-e deluxe, nvidia geforce 6800gt 512 - OS doesn't start


Try to start your computer into a safe mode and then remove the old graphic card driver but if you cant get to safe mode then probably theres a problem with your operating system. Consider reformat and install a fresh copy of any OS you prefered.

*Supported chipsets: NVIDIA GeForce 6200 or greater (GeForce 8800 recommended for DirectX 10); ATI Radeon 9000 or greater. Laptop versions of these chipsets may work but are not supported. Updates to your video and sound card drivers may be required.
