My nvidia geforce 6600 256mb video card not being detected...

My nvidia geforce 6600 256mb video card was working fine for 3 years then after computer was sitting idle for a few months, on reboot the monitor wouldnt show any picture meaning the card wasn't being detected... Is the card dead, or is my AGP slot messed up... I'm hoping the card isn't because last night i got it to work for 30 minutes then my screen froze and on reboot the same problem, black screen.

I think it is your video card, however here is a method of testing it. Take another agp card just like it or similar to it and place it into the agp slot and if it has the same issue it would be your motherboards agp slot.

I feel you got a failing video card my friend as if the slot failed you would not have got that far!.

Try another video card, you can get them cheap from Fry's.com hold on to your receipt just in case you have a failed motherboard (witch i can doubt that)

Greetings. I have FX5500 card from NVIDIA. Card is detected just fine by O/S, but when I install the software driver, just before rebooting, an unresponsive window appears that says 'Should Not See...


Hello,

Here is my suggestion. Go to Nvidia's web site and download the drivers for your card.

Go to this page, www.nvidia.com/Download/index.aspx?lang=en-us (make sure you choose the correct operating system from the pull down menu).

If you are using a driver installation utility try downloading and installing theses drivers manually.

Hope this helps.

Sounds like your getting conflicts with running two different card drivers. I've never heard of running a PCI and a PCIe card at the same time.

Second monitor no longer detected by NVIDIA GeForce 7950GT / on Vista


A quick question, Are your monitors using a DVI output from your graphics card?

When was the last time you remember them both working, and what display driver was you using?

have you tried swapping both vga/dvi cables round and booting in safe mode?

see if that helps..
