Question about Computers & Internet

1 Answer

I have fitted a NVidia 9600 graphic card to my Intel Core 2 Duo 1.8 g computer. The computer has downloaded and intalled the graphic drivers. But when I attempt to start up again, the computer turns off after a few seconds. The only way then is via safe mode, where the standard vga graphics adaptor is detected. Why does my 9600 card not get on with my 9600 drivers? Colin

    I did clear out the old NVidia drivers before I started - but I'm a bit reluctant to look at the Bios setting - the simple reason being that I do not know how to!



    Thank for your interest.

Have you set the bios graphics setting to use the PCI or AGP graphics card and disable the onboard graphics?

What you need to do is to purchase a decent graphics card, any-thing better than a Nvidia 9600, thats a PCI-Express x16 2.0 graphics card.
There are Nvidia and there are AMD based cards. Both are good.
Remember that you get what you pay for so a cheap card, is not going to give you a great performance.
Go to a computer store and have a look at what they have on offer, remember to get a good make like ASUS, MSI, Gigabyte, etc...
Maybe try an Nvidia 240GT or 250GT, remember also that is your GPU is too power-full the rest of your computer system will become a bottle neck. Meaning that your system will not be able to fully utilize your graphics card.

Use You tube as a tool.
Search Linus Tech Tips for good reviews and computer info.

Take care!

The processor is too weak - get at least an i5, best would be a quad core i7; the hard drive will be filled faster than you thing - bigger is always better; get some faster memories - at least 1666 MHz, 4 GB is bare minimum, get a 64bit OS and 8 GB for real performance; the power source is at the limit - for best result get one of 600W; as for the video card the best for photoshop is Nvidia Quadro CX, even ATI Fire will be better than any gaming card.
