Re: I have a blank screen
Glad you got it fixed. Next time something like this occurs, try searching the forum of your distro (or the Ubuntu forums as they seem to have just about every error ever listed in there) as you will usually find the answer faster.

Goto device manager , uninstall the card. go into control panel and check that the driver is uninstalled from the programs list. Swich of the pc for a minute or two then reboot Windows updares does not download drivers for graphics cards so will not install or reinstall the driver that is causing the issue, 307? Users forget to uninstall from program manger in control panel which is why the card keeps reinstalling with the undesired driver.
Please let me know what happens
If the PC boots without the video card, then it has an onboard card. Try checking BIOS and make sure display is set to onboard card. It is a good chance the drivers are already loaded. Even if they are not you should default display settings, Like 256 colors and 800x600 resolution.
I have the same system and card. The problem is the system is trying to run two monitors at once. Use Windows safe mode (F8 during boot) to uninstall any Pny drivers you may have put on. Reboot. Install the pny drivers again. Before rebooting, use the device manager to look at the display drivers. There should be two, an Intel one, and the pny Nvidia one. Disable the intel driver and reboot. Worked for me. Youmay also want to upgrade the power supply. The 3000 has a 225W and the 8400 card wants at least 300W.
Out of range indicates that the refresh rate or resolution is set too high for the monitor to display. I would suggest re booting into safe mode by pressing F8 during boot, before windows begins to load. Select safe mode with networking if you can, and once in safe mode, uninstall the ati display driver from the control panel. Then go to ATI's site and download the latest driver for your card. Save that file to your desktop. Reboot normally, as Windows should load default vga drivers for your card. Once in Windows, install the latest driver you just downloaded. That should reset the resoultion to one that your monitor can display. Good luck:)
If you have on board graphics try removing video card and reboot when computer rebooted turn it of and refit card and restart when restarted computer should recognize new hard ware and should find the already installed drivers if not try installing drivers again Sometimes windows does not recognize new hardware until its refitted had this problem with modems alot and the above method solved it
Uninstall current graphics card drivers.
Before you install your new card, you'll need to uninstall your current
graphics card's drivers to avoid any potential conflicts. Right-click
My Computer and select Properties. Under the Hardware tab, find the
button to open the Device Manager. Your graphics card should be listed
under the Display Adapter heading. Double-click the name of your
graphics card to open a properties window for your current card. Last step: Under the
Driver tab, click the Uninstall button.
Remove old card. Turn off your PC and unplug it from the wall.
Open the case Make sure you first
ground yourself by first touching a metal part of your PC case or by
wearing an antistatic wrist strap. (Grounding yourself will prevent you
from getting shocked and from unintentionally damaging your PC's
components.) If you are replacing a graphics card, you'll need to
remove a small screw attached to the back plate prior to taking out the
Install new card. It wouldn't hurt to page through your new
card's instruction manual at this point. Then, take your new graphics
card out of its foil wrapper and slide it into your motherboard's slot. Press down firmly with even force until it is securely in place
(your system won't boot up unless the card is in all the way). Screw it
into the back plate and close up your case.
Install new drivers. Turn on your PC and install the drivers.
Windows XP should automatically recognize the new hardware and walk you
through the installation wizard. If Windows doesn't detect the card,
click Settings from the Start menu. Open the Control Panel and click
Add Hardware. From there, a wizard will help you install the new
drivers from the CD that came bundled with your new card. It's a good
idea to check the graphic card vendor's Web site for more up-to-date
drivers, just in case the vendor has released drivers since
manufacturing your card. Once you've downloaded the drivers, simply
restart your PC. Now, you're ready to start gaming.
ATI can get confusing. You might have installed ATI's CCC, "Catalyst Control Center", along with the display drivers. I suggest you download the latest combo-CCC and drivers for your video card. ATI comes out with new drivers pretty fast. When using dual monitors CCC is where you want to setup your monitors. After you set up the catalyst control center you'll find it much easyer to assign what monitor displays what. One other suggestion. ATI will want you to uninstall any other software for your ATI card even though all you have is ATI software.
