First the easiest way is to try to update the VGA (Display) Drivers automatically from internet. Right Click My
Computer and go to Properties - then Device Manager. Look for VGA
Display Adapters (Drivers) in the list. Right Click the Display Adaptor
and Choose update Drivers automatically. This will update the Drivers
automatically from windows update and install the latest compatible
drivers (if available).
Vaio SZ-360P is compatible with Windows Vista. Hence, there is a great
possibility the VGA Drivers for Vista would work. So, download the Vista Drivers and try them. Good Luck! Hope this helps! CreativeTECH
Hello Virna, i have that exact graphics card and dell GX270 desktop here at home, tho it has been awhile since i removed the Nvidia PCI card for a more favorable AGP card. From what i remember, first check your BIOS (hit F2 on startup) and select integrated devices, scroll down and make sure your default video output is either PCI (if available) or AUTO) exit saving changes. If that yields no result. Plug in a second monitor to your old integrated video output, if you can view windows after bootup from there, then you can install the proper Nvidia display driver for windows Xp (available here: http://www.nvidia.com/object/winxp_175.19_whql.html ). After installing, right click on the desktop, select properties, display settings tab, and make sure the Geforce card is the main monitor and the desktop monitor. Click apply, unplug the integrated VGA output, and restart. Hope this helps.
Check BIOS settings but first change the supervisor password and log in as administrator. In BIOS there is a option like IGP-PCI and vice-versa. Set it to begin with PCI, save and continue. This what generally what needs to be done when you are not using your inbuilt/integrated graphics thats incorporated in the MB.......sodeep
I think that the only options that you have are to 1) reinstall Windows, which doesn't see to help you out. 2) run the Windows XP installtion disk and do and in-place installation of your display drivers, see this link http://support.microsoft.com/kb/315341 or 3) use remote desktop from another machine and re-enable your display adapter. If you are running XP home this will be a little bit more troublesome.
Windows will automatically install your desktop monitor using generic drivers. But if it doesn't, go to safemode by pressing F8 before it goes to windows. Change your settings from there. Also, normally, CRT monitors can take more than LCD monitors.
On many portable computers and some desktop computers (those with two video
ports on one video card), you can expand your display to a second monitor by
using Dualview. Dualview is very similar to the multiple monitor feature, with
the exception that you cannot select the primary display. On a portable
computer, the primary monitor is always the LCD display screen. On a desktop
computer, it is the monitor attached to the first video out port.
Once you attach the second monitor and turn on your computer, use Display in
Control Panel to configure your settings, just as you do with multiple monitors.
Dualview can be used with docked or undocked portable computers
This procedure applies when two or more monitors are connected to one
On the Settings tab, click Identify to display a large number
on each of your monitors, showing which monitor corresponds with each icon.
Click the monitor icons and drag them to positions that represent how you
want to move items from one monitor to another, and then click OK or
Apply to view changes.
To open Display, click Start, click Control Panel, and
then double-click Display.
The icon positions determine how you move items from one monitor to another.
For example, if you are using two monitors and you want to move items from one
monitor to the other by dragging left and right, place the icons side by side.
To move items between monitors by dragging up and down, place the icons one
above the other. The icon positions do not have to correspond to the physical
positions of the monitors. You can place the icons one above the other even
though your monitors are side by side
